  • FIFA 11: Goalkeeping in OTP and Demo News
    Posted August 17th, 2010 at 12:00 pm 13 Comments »
    Today EA Sports announced that Online Team Play in FIFA 11 will expand beyond the 10v10 that had been featured previously to now a full 11v11 by including goalkeepers amongst the user controlled players. "Be a Goalkeeper" as it is being called will also be available in career mode. Be A Goalkeeper is a completely new way to play—instead of thinking as a player out in the middle of the pitch, you have to think and react as the goalkeeper. Experience the thrill of the one on one...
  • Madden 11 Monumental Comeback in OTP
    Posted August 14th, 2010 at 8:34 am 30 Comments »
    Last night I got together with Fred and CoreySA to run through a couple games of Online Team Play in Madden 11. The memorable game of the evening included a comeback from down 28-6 late in the 3rd quarter. Though we felt like we were playing decently on both sides of the ball the opposition kept converting third downs. It took us a while but eventually we decided to dial up the pressure and what resulted was a 36-11 swing which included three INT-TDs (all by defensive lineman) and a 42-39 vict...

  • Pay for Boosts in Madden 11 OTP

    Earlier today a posting went up with some details on and video of the Online Team Play mode for Madden 11. I was less than thrilled by the structure and that was before finding out about this. While users can earn attribute boosts through various achievements that apply to the players they control they can also be bought. The idea of providing rewards based on performance is a solid one, however once again by allowing some to just buy them it creates a balance issue and gives an unfair edge...

  • Madden 11 Adding True Online Team Play
    Posted April 23rd, 2010 at 7:52 am 35 Comments »
    When online co-op was delivered last year, with two users able to connect together and face the CPU, that was intended somewhat as a bridge to an Online Team Play mode that was to come. That will be delivered in Madden 11 as Gamestop has posted a listing of features which includes the mention of 3v3 Online Team Play. This is likely what is being referred to in the trailer as what will "reinvent the way you play football online". (more…)...

    This Friday we have an opportunity to put together an online team play club outing against a group of NBA Live developers (on the 360).
