    Re: NFL Madden 2011

    Rented the game today. So far, so good I guess. I wouldn't say I'm blown away, but it's certainly not the most frustrating and awful version I've played in the past few years.

    The new Gameflow feature is kind of cool, but I need to turn off the annoying voice and subtitles. That gets very old very quickly. I like the idea of creating your own gameplan for certain situations. Cool idea, but it takes a while so I haven't had the time to implement it yet. Thankfully they allow you to go straight to the playbook on every play, so you have a choice.

    I've turned off Auto-Sprint. I'd prefer to keep that kind of control for myself. I've yet to up the difficulty from factory default, but just playing a quick exhibition game right out of the package, I crushed the Bears with the Rams 55-7. Running the ball was incredibly easy; once you get some momentum behind you, it doesn't seem like you can be stopped. Maybe that gets more realistic on higher difficulties.

    In-game graphics are meh. I'm running through HDMI and I'm not incredibly impressed. I'll move the XBox to the big 52" TV and see if that impression changes. Some things look a little cartoony at times.

    So we'll see. I've only played for about an hour or so, but I'm not itching to run out and grab my very own copy. Chances are I'll cave and buy it, especially as the season gets closer and I'm itching to franchise it up.

    Play the real thing? That would require going outside I don't think so, its to hot lol.

    Anyone else got the game yet I'm havin fun with what I like to call GSOT 3.0. I am liking our wide recievers on the game and bradfords arm is a blessing compared to bulgers. I wish fendi was on the game but I assume he will be later. And darby has been a nice backup.

    Well my game got a update last night and the rams stayed at 81. So what do you have to say about that sosa? Still think my game isn't the exact same as yours.

    If you goto franchise mode it shows their actual ratings not exhibition for some reason that says 66 but if you goto franchise mode with the same team it changes to 81.

    I believe they decided to grade the players and not just look at our last year performance.

    Good question I looked for him but couldn't find him. I am guessing maybe since he was not signed till late and he was a 6th round pick he isn't on there yet I am assuming he will be on there on the 10th when the game comes out and I will be able to update the rosters.

    But uh-oh is on there and its funny to here the announcer say his name.

    I have beat all the madden moments already and I am gonna tell ya the last one is alittle difficult. You have to score a touchdown, then onside kick and score another touch down within like minute with the colts vs saints.

    Re: NFL Madden 2011

    Ok for you doubters I restarted the roster and moved everything around like I did before.


    We have avery, burton, and then gilyard as the top three move avery, robinson, and gibson to the starting roles.

    adeyanju is starting at LE so i moved long over there because i like the left side. And then moved james hall to RE were long was

    I moved fred robbins ahead of cliff ryan at DT

    Our starting corners were bartell, king, and fletcher so i moved it to bartell, murphy, fletcher, butler, then king

    kevin payne who is a 71 is starting at FS so I added O.J. who is a 92, had to get rid of someone to make room so i got rid of larry grant the LOLB

    Then I got rid of darell scott to make room for hovan

    Do all of this whenever you get the game and you will be the rams rated at a 81. It was a 80 until i got rid of darell scott for hovan.










    heres three of the rookie pics someone asked for.

    Re: Madden 11

    I'll be happy to throw insite when the game comes out which is the 10th here. Thats 4 more days, the count is almost over. I usually re-do some of the team aswell. Stuff like trading Bulger, Littler, guys that are rated 78. 79 and are making 7 mill a year are unacceptable. but this was all for 10 so.....

    Madden 11

    Seeing as Madden 11 is out soon i was wondering who everybody likes to add to their rams franchise? Last year i traded for Michael Johnson (DE Bengals) he was a star, him and Long formed a good partnership. I always end up getting a few corners too, because ours are badly rated! This year i managed to purchase NCAA football 11, so ill be able to import the draft class to this years madden, im definately drafting one of the big WRs when the time comes!!

    Thoughts please....

    Re: 6,000 Former NFL Players File Lawsuit Over Madden Likenesses

    I always wondered why classic teams never had names. I figured when they bought the rights to players names that meant current and past players.

    6,000 Former NFL Players File Lawsuit Over Madden Likenesses

    NFL Player Files Lawsuit Over Madden Likenesses
    Posted Yesterday 8:04 AM

    Former Bengals all-star running back Tony Davis, on behalf of over 6,000 retired NFL players, have filed a suit against Electronic Arts over the use of their likenesses in Madden NFL 09.

    According to the players, Madden didn't use "classic" players' actual names or numbers, but did swipe the actual stats of well-known players. According to the court filing:

    "EA's commercial exploitation of retired NFL players is both blatant and prolific, as the 2009 version of the Madden NFL video game contained over 140 'historic teams' containing likenesses of thousands of retired NFL players. EA was fully aware of its use of the retired players' likenesses was without authorization and that a license was needed."

    "The only significant detail that EA changes from the real-life retired NFL players is their jersey number. Despite EA's 'scrambling' of the retired NFL players' numbers, the games are designed so that consumers of the Madden NFL video game franchise will have no difficulty identifying who the 'historic' players are."
    Madden 09 allows players to edit the names of classic players too, essentially giving you the right to re-create the actual names of classic players, should you choose to.

    Ehhh, the funnest game I've played was NFL Blitz, yes the rosters and graphics are all Stone Age material but the humor, unrealism, and penalties you can do deliberately provided me with some nostalgic fun. Sadly, Midway (the gaming company that made them) went bankrupt and EA, the managers of Madden nowadays only use their game as cash cow material, supporting them for a short period of time then afterwards leaving them to rot somewhere in time.

    Now that Madden has signed on for 7 more years, is this a good or bad thing. You can't argue with his passion for the game, but honestly he has lost his touch and also has a serious case of HALF-zheimer's. I am getting pretty tired of listening to "that was a nice route by Isaac Holt". Or "The Los Angeles Rams are for real". :tut

    Madden 25
    by Bing69
    As some of you gamers may know, Madden 25 demo was released yesterday. has anyone tried it?

    I skipped last years madden but found myself eagerly awaiting this years. I gave the demo a bash last night and it seems pretty good, although i would need to be able to change the control settings to something im more familar with in order to fully appreciate the game.

    How do you think the Rams will fare in ratings? Seahawks and ***** are both 90 or over if i remember correctly!!

    Madden, I hate you with a passion
    by sjacksonrules
    I see the update listing on pastapadre and I look at it hoping to see at least 7 updates theres 3......

    First off I see Jason Smith OL STL Increase, from 85 to 86OVR
    With him being our RT thats a good update because he is in I believe top 7 ranked RT's in the NFL on madden (not offical just a estimate) but wheres the update for saffold he played great and is only a 74 which makes mad because alex barron is 72 what is up with that? Just another reason to hate you madden.

    Then I see Sam Bradford QB STL Increase, from 84 to 85OVR
    I was thinkin cool that puts him up pretty high on the list for being a rookie. Freeman, ryan, and flacco are the only recent draft picks that are rated higher I would of liked to see a little higher maybe 86 but I am greedy lol.

    Then I see Steven Jackson HB STL Decrease, from 95 to 94OVR
    I am I thinkin to myself you have got to be kidding me.....

    Steven was a 95 at the start of madden 11 and the season. Season goes on and he goes up to a 96. Then he goes down to 95. And finally now 94???? Are you kidding me madden.

    They gave marc bulger a 2 point increase and he did literally absolutey nothing the entire year.

    So seriously steven gets over 1200 rush yards , goes for 330 carries with 1 fumble the entire year (2 last year), scores a td in the pro bowl and goes down 2 point levels. Not to mention steven fumbles alot on the game for me at least and that shouldnt happen he doesnt fumble, EVER!

    Madden YOU ARE A JOKE!!! I can not wait for the day that ESPN rishes from the ashes and strikes down madden and causes them to disappear entirely.

    I am going to my local pawnshop tomarrow to buy 2k5. It honestly is still better than madden 11. I'll just custom make Sammy B and add a julio jones or something like that.
