  • What makes Madden NFL 13 better than past games - Key Features

    Madden NFL 13 - Key Features


    EA has been solidly backing up the fact that they really improved on the previous iteration and that Madden NFL 13 is going to be the best game of the whole franchise. They are not only making such claims but also layering out justifications of why they think that is the case.

    They have listed out several "Key Features" of Madden NFL 13 in their official website that I thought I might highlight for you guys. Check them out and decide on yourselves whether you think these features mean anything significant to you guys.

    I am not a huge fan myself but I occasionally enjoy having a competitive match with a friend once in a while. According to the latest buzz in the internet, the game has similarities to the past iterations (of course they can't just redefine the franchise) but has minor changes that is definitely taking the franchise in the right direction. That's promising don't you think?

    Key Features:

    Presentation: Madden NFL 13 delivers world-class presentation with an all-new living front end, dynamic in-game transitions, a live ticker, and drastically improved usability. Every game has the feel of a nationally televised broadcast with CBS Sports commentators Jim Nantz and Phil Simms calling the action from the virtual 3D booth.

    Improved Gameplay: With a completely redesigned passing game including a new pass-ready system and improved play action, and the all-new read and react defensive AI system that features the most intelligent pass defense to date, Madden NFL 13 achieves greater realism on the virtual gridiron on both sides of the ball

    With Physics You Can Feel, Madden NFL 13 delivers Next Generation gameplay today. Powered by the all-new Infinity Engine, true player impact and authentic momentum transfer ensure that no two plays ever look or feel the same.

    Improved Audio: Madden NFL 13 delivers a superb audio experience that faithfully replicates NFL Sundays with CBS' Jim Nantz and Phil Simms calling the action, QB cadences, authentic sound effects and actual on-field player chatter, all provided by NFL Films, and a fully-scored orchestral theme that conveys the emotion and excitement of professional football.

    All-new Connected Careers: Live the NFL dream - whenever you want, wherever you want in a fully interactive, social, and connected online experience. Create your personal legacy or relive an all-time legend's as you build the ultimate franchise as a coach, an NFL superstar, or yourself.

  • Gran Turismo 5, now with real life damage!

    The latest patch for the hit PS3 driving simulator Gran Turismo 5 is going todelight those who were complaining about the details of damage in the game.After downloading the patch, "My Lounge" it allows you to choose exactly how much of mechanical damage you're willing to have on your car due from online play.

    To be more detailed about this patch's key feature, you can have your car take as much damage and be looking spiffy and untouched for theentiretyof online play with "NONE" option. In addition, with the "HEAVY" option, if you took a lot of damage during playtime, your car would look so damage, I don't think even Carfax would take it. And somewhere in the middle,there's a "Light" option where it shows your car taking some moderate damage but regenerates it over time....which I would have liked in real life, especially when I was driving through wintertime Iowa during my college years.

  • NBA Jam to have a Disc Release

    NBA JAM not downloadable but a physical video game!


    With NBA Jam already released on disc for the Wii, the PS3 and Xbox versions that were originally to be original downloadable content for delayed NBA Elite 11, will be now be a retailÂÂdisc release according to an EA Sports representative. EA Sports President Peter Moore stated that EA is going to ship NBA Jam as a standalone product in time for the holidays. This was sort of hinted at as Gamefly recently listed the game for a November launch which knowing Gamefly's rental service meant it was going to be a physical product.

    Jen Riley of EA Sports Vancouver had this to say:
    "The fact that retailers are showing the box is because we are shipping Jam in a box on [Xbox 360 and PS3]....we just haven't announced a firm date."

    With this statement and confirmation the project team is trying to get as much of the Wii's version content onto the PS3/360 version's release and likely point of a price from a matching fifty dollars to a present day standard of sixty dollars.

  • Politics would be SO much cooler if they were decided by NBA Jam

    Games - NBA Jam sets Politicians against each other


    Taking a page from the old NBA Jam games, there will be political figures in NBA Jam. EA's latest game in the franchise will feature the political figures of today including Sarah Palin, George W. Bush, John McCain, and President Obama.

    Thankfully, both sides of the aisle will be represented and will have actual teams based on their parties of both Republican and Democrat and will have their own uniforms and home courts. So far it's been confirmed to be included on the Wii at the moment but they're likely to be on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions in an upcoming update.

    Now it's only a matter of time before we get the Fox News team slam dunk over the MSNBC team. Then the game will end when the pointless arguing makes the entire stadium fall asleep
