Madden 2013

Due to the Madden 12 thread, I'd thought i'd post what the news is about this years edition.

-There will be no more picks from defenders looking over the shoulder or having the ball come over head. Defense must face the ball.
- Super jump abilities for LBs/DBs has been taken away
-Receiver icons will light up for pass plays when they would expect the ball on certain routes. Doesn't mean they're open, but when they would expect the ball coming out of breaks.
-There are new accuracy tweaks. They want you to throw into windows instead of waiting for the receiver gets open (almost impossible on 12)
- New throwing motions, and specific drop backs for all qbs (3,5,7 step drops)
-QBs do PA faster so you don't get raped by defenses constantly.

All I've heard so far really, but it seems that this game should play better. However, that is what is said every year. Until Madden gets a true competitor imo (2ksports) they will continue to put out a shitty product.

They've said this BS every year, I'm not buying it. Let's face it, we'll probably never get another good football game again in our lives.
Actually their sales have been down. They have a new lead developer, and this connected careers has been a multi year build. EA has to step up their game, people like you & I are tired of buying half baked roster updates.

Im at least optimistic this year.

A little off topic, but EA related.
My wife bought me NCAA 13 for my birthday, and man…..talk about a let down. Overall it feels exactly the same as last year.
I just can’t bring myself to buy Madden. And, frankly, I wasn’t even planning on getting NCAA 13, but couldn’t let the wife feel bad if I were to take it back.

The Road To Glory is abysmal. They need to add in achievements/points for doing your job (like NBA 2K12 etc). If you’re on defense on RTG, forget about getting any points anytime soon. I’d guess about 85% of the plays/running plays go away from you. I still do ‘my’ job however (fill gaps, set edge etc) but get virtually no points. The And, really?......in RTG you only have the stadium announcer? BS! NBA didn’t take this lame shortcut etc.


Rant over…..

EA is complete garbage ever since the next gen shit came out. It's just gone completely downhill year after year after year. The NCAA games have been good up until about a year ago from what I've seen, but there hasn't been a good Madden game since the one where Vick was on the cover (2004 maybe?)

they always have a new developer every few years, it went form David Ortiz to Ian Cummings who everyone thought was going to save football gaming, then this new cat, i dont knwo his name as i dont follow it all that much anymore. i have lost complete hope in Tiburon.

I just hope their sales continue to go down and down, so that the NFL allows another company in. If they dont well, ill get over it. lol

Yes. Played two games before heading to work. It seems like a more polished version of Madden 12, IMO. The new physics animations & player models look a little better, and the pre-game presentation is cool. I'm not a fan of the new 'throw your receiver open' passing mechanic, and hated it on NCAA 13.

The first thing I really looked for was better O-line interaction, and it seems to be there. They don't seem to miss their assignment as much, but still saw a few lineman wandering downfield clueless.

Its only a demo though, and from what I experienced, its polished enough for me to trade in NCAA and pick it up.

Cool. Connected careers is the part that intrigues me this year. It's a big deal to take away franchise, and trying to make a 3-in-1 mode.

Thanks for the feedback. I can't wait to try a few games this evening. Any noticeble difference in the physics?

It did go downhill once the new generation of consoles came out. But Madden 12 was a step in the right direction. There were flaws for sure, but it wasn't bad. I'm hoping this years is better. I've heard a lot of good things about what they are TRYING to do.

I got NCAA 13 last night and played a few games of it. I thought it was pretty damn good compared to years past.

Thats a good point. All I do is play offline franchise. Whenever I played online my opponent always picked the Eagles or Steelers or some other top team. Every damn time. And they would always do cheap stuff. So it just wasnt fun.
