Madden 13 blows 2/10 would not play

118 posts in this topic

The main thing that pisses me off is the ratings. LaFell's speed is still that of a TE at 86. Donny Moore can't give a brother an 88, at the least?

Then the rosters are already supposed to have been updated, yet I'm still stuck with Mare's weak ass on the team. I fully expect Donny Moore to add Medlock next week with 88 KPW because he doesn't know anything about our team, OR he just doesn't like us.

Cam only has an 80 on DAC... SMH... Let's take a look at RG3's or Luck's. Norman with 84 speed. Nakamura with the same. I hate that sh*t. Each should at least have an 88, and say what you will, but that is a huge difference. Offensive line is spotty - each new starter is rated extremely low - like 73.

Oh, and the kicker... Denagelo loses YET ANOTHER point from his speed at 29 years old, despite still averaging over 5 ypc. That's why Donny Moore is a douche. There was no reason to take a point away from his speed, yet he continues to show his inner-hater when it comes to us. I'm telling you, I can't put up with much more of this crap. Having one guy assign ratings skewed by his own biases is ruining the game. They should base it off relevant info and statistics - until a guy shows that he has fallen off the old guy cliff, leave him alone. IDIOTS.

The game itself, ehhh, I love the new engine and the look and feel, but it will take some getting used to. At times, it feels extremely clumsy and clunky. In the passing game, the defenders get very little time to adjust. The control seems way to sensitive to even the slightest tap on the left analog. In career mode, my guy keeps making me guide him to the punt or kickoff manually, which in years past was easy, it would feel like the player would lock into the catching area once you put him there. This year, its an accomplishment to even get him there... And when I have he muffed about 3 in a row one game.

Our jerseys look like the generic knockoffs you'd find at a Maxway or Dollar General. I know Feldman said the black pants were gone when he previewed it, but I wonder why? I was hoping he just made a mistake, but he didn't, they're not there.

I don't know, I like the feel of what's going on, on the field that is. But, it definitely is in need of some tuning.

You at least had some kind words for it. Anyone is Greensboro want it on 360? fug this game.

I won't get it until next week.

Thing is, I'm not a video game expert, I just like to play it. So when I do get it, I probably won't have many complaints.

(And since I spent almost $50, I tell myself I'm going to enjoy it no matter what)

LOL, I'm just trying not to shade anyone's opinion one way or another. I'm trying to be optimistic about it, but as I said, my experience in career mode so far is extremely disappointing. Great, I got my face in the game, but the game itself plays like crap right now. Trying to get under a kickoff to return it is a joke. The AI keeps causing my guy to run away from it when it's at like 10 yard line. By the time I get my guy back there, the ball hits him in the chest, and thanks to the new engine he sprawls out on the ground to get it without me pressing the dive button or anything. It's fairly frustrating.

I like underdog stories, so I made my guy an undrafted FA. So far, I've wasted my time doing practice drills and only doing returns on kicks and punts, yet I've seen no action on offense 3 games in - AND I'M STILL ON THE TEAM, lol. Unrealistic.

And from what I've observed, the passing game will be exploited big time because the total control passing was revamped, but the stupid AI for the defenders was not - from what I see. Throw a bullet 50 yards downfield and if the receiver catches it, even well-covered, it will most likely go all the way. The defender has very little time to react, and if he does, the controls are so sensitive he most likely will move too far one way or another and end up completely out of position.

And the run game sucks. I think you get tackled for losses much more than ever before... At least in career mode....

I'm trying to be patient because each year they've "revamped" it, it took some getting used to and then I'm all good. But, this feels like a VERY different game with a lot of nuances to get used to.

Is the career mode comparable to M12?

Any advice on running the triple option? I know how to pitch it, but I can't figure out how to go with the 1st option of just running up the gut (handing the ball off).

Haven't played this year's Madden, but I know in NCAA (on PS3, at least) you hold X after you hike the ball to hand it to the fullback.

What mode are you playing? Offline or Online?

I was talking specifically about career mode (as a RB)...

So that would probably be A on xbox then. Snap with A, then hold down A to hand off?

Two things really annoyed me, Silatolu having an animal in his helmet and career mode. Played as Cam and during the first practice I noticed that the GM had signed Cedric Benson. So basically a backfield of Williams, Stewart, Benson and Tolbert.

Think of it as if when you press A you extend the ball to the RB, if you let go before he gets to it, you keep it.
