Joe Montana NFL Football 16... AKA NFL 2k16... Madden's tyrannical monopoly coming...

16 March 2015 - 07:32 PM

So sometime last year there was this football game announced call Joe Montana NFL Football 16... and it sort of just went under the radar.  It's been quite under wraps, and no one really knew anything about it.  Joe Montana just released cryptic tweets such as 'it's going to change the game #morethanjustarosterupdate'


Well now, if this is to be believed, there has been a leak and this game is actually 2k Sport's first NFL game since NFL 2k5 when they outclassed EA in every way... caused a panic, and EA subsequently countered with a blockbuster buyout of the exclusivity rights for the NFL license.  Apparently there's a loophole in the license where other developers can create NFL games as LONG as it's a first party title, for example, a Playstation or Xbox exclusive.  This has been confirmed as an Xbox One exclusive.






- The game was demoed and it went well. Actually, “well” is an understatement. People went crazy. NDA’s were and still are in place for them. That’s why you haven’t heard anyone saying anything, but a lot of people are having a very hard time because what they seen was unbelievable and it’s been impossible to go back to Madden or even take Madden seriously after that. It’s like, how you felt when you had an NES and you saw Sega Genesis for the first time. The step up in quality is THAT big.


- There are a few important modes. One is a story mode and it’s pretty cool. Think NBA 2K My Player. That’s what you’re getting.


-The graphics, animations and AI are all obscenely good and modern. It looks like a game that was built for this new generation, not just a port over from last generation with a ton of sloppy tweaks. The animations are easily the most crisp of any sports game ever made. Comparing the animations to Madden, it’s going make Madden look like a PS1 game by comparison. This is going to be embarrassing for EA Tiburon, like The Show Vs MLB 2K and NBA 2K vs NBA Live embarrassing.


- Expect Joe Montana NFL Football 16 out in Mid-late July.

I apologize to the team making this game and to Mr. Montana, but I feel that with just 4 months until release and a reveal schedule that really just strings everybody along unnecessarily, it was only right to tell people the truth so they can be prepared with enough time to act. Again, I’m deeply sorry but I know I’m doing the right thing.

Time to nut up and finish this season out strong

11 March 2015 - 02:10 PM

So I came across this graph over on the NBA section of reddit...




Just for convenience sake I labeled the separation of East and West, and highlighted where we were at in the East standings.  As you can see, we're doing pretty damn good in relation to the rest of our conference... and 3 teams that are ahead of us have been on a bit of a free-fall.


We did ourselves no favor at all by starting out as terrible as we did at the beginning of the season, but we slowly clawed our way back... I know the last loss was discouraging, but if we can keep it up, we're in a really good position to make the playoffs despite the cutthroat race to the finish for the 7th and 8th seed.  If this pace holds up, who knows where the Bucks, Wizards, and Raptors end up in the standings?


Here's the overall rankings




Even including the stacked Western Conference, we've been the 10th best team in the league over this stretch.  Who knows what we look like when Kemba gets back?  Barring an unfortunate matchup against Cleveland in the 1st round, we could realistically make it to the 2nd round this year... which would be a huge step forward for this franchise.

49ers Fullback Bruce Miller arrested on domestic violence charges

10 March 2015 - 12:08 AM

Lol, just to pile on the 49ers meltdown, reported just a few hours ago apparently their fullback Bruce Miller was arrested






SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller was arrested on spousal battery charges, Northern California authorities said Monday.

An arrest log for the Santa Clara police department shows the 28-year-old Miller was arrested last week at an undisclosed location.

The 49ers were looking into details, the team said Monday.

"The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Bruce Miller," general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "We were disappointed to learn of these reports and will do our due diligence in collecting all relevant information."

Miller didn't immediately return a call for comment.

The 27-year-old Miller spoke last fall of being newly engaged and buying a house after receiving a three-year contract extension in March 2014. The 49ers were committed to keeping a key member of their running game through the 2017 season.

Miller is a key run-blocker who cleared the way for Frank Gore's fourth consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season. He impressed the 49ers brass when he converted from college defensive end at Central Florida to NFL fullback. He earned Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year honors while becoming the school's all-time sacks leader with 36 before the 49ers selected him in the seventh round of the 2011 draft.
