Superstar Mode [03 Sep 2006|01:47pm]

thebigbadbutch
I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks year's edition of Superstar Mode seems really bare. It's better than last year but we all know EA Games can do better than a new camera mode and few text messages. So, for those of you who actually play Superstar mode what else would you guys like to see in next years edition of Superstar?

Here are some things I'd like to see:
  • More cutscenes. Clearly, EA has recognized that cutscenes enhance the gameplay, or else they wouldn't have put in the cut of the guy walking into the HoF. There are plenty of opportunities to make new cutscenes in the game, such as your SS makes Player of the Week or an awards ceremony at the end of the season. Instead of text interviews with a microphone in the corner maybe the SS could actually go on a show and do the interview?
  • Money Spending. During the off season you have the opportunity to negotiate for how much money you want. What's the point of this if you can't at least use the money? I'd like for my SS to be able to use his $2.2 million deal and pick out his own apartment or furnish it. Maybe buy some clothes which he could wear during the cut scene. Maybe buy some nice cars which could also be used during the cut scene.
  • Ladies. There have been 18,000 players in the NFL. What are the chances that even 1 of them never got a date in his pursuit of the HoF honor? How about a chance to go to a club or meet a nice actress on the set of the SS's movies? Plus, a SS's interactions with the ladies could affect his reputation. Is he a playboy? Did a recent breakup affect his performance this week? Is your SS getting married in the off season? How about being able to dedicate a touchdown to the SS's kid, who'll probably be a future SS as well? Or, maybe dedicate a Superbowl touchdown to a hospitalized kid? That's the sort of thing that'll really get jersey sales going.

Now that the player ratings are on the internet, I almost feel like a geek admitting it, but I've already begun scouting people to see who I can pluck from other teams for my team, lol.

It will be interesting to see how the new rating categories influence gameplay.

I am definitely getting excited. Is anyone going to pick up their game at midnight?

salary cap? [16 Feb 2006|02:42pm]

[ mood | frustrated ]

Is there any way to turn off the salary cap in Madden 06 for the PS2 in the franchise mode? I ended my franchise over a month ago and couldnt keep nearly the same roster i had for the season. I just tried again today for about 2 hours reconstructing contracts and whatnot and i cannot make ends meet. i even let go of high calibur players and tried to fill the holes in the draft but to no avail.

Can the salary cap be turned off?

And if not, if i start the franchise mode over again and save it over the franchise that i did have, will i lose things that i have gained throughout the season such as records set, progress in mini camp or madden cards? would i also lose the tokens i have achieved?

Madden Update and Vids [19 Dec 2005|03:56pm]

allyaneedisrick
Week 14, 2006. Cincinatti at New England. The Foresome of Randy Moss, Chad Johnson, Donte Stollworth, and Az-Hakim have led the league in almost every statistical area. With Carson Palmer tieing Peyton Manning's TD record at the end of week 13's game against the Browns in Cleveland. Trung Canidate took over starting duties after splitting carries with Rudi Johnson the year before. Rudi was traded for defensive help and a first round draft pick. Travis Henry was converted to Full Back and former Half back Chris Perry and former Wide Outs Koren Robinson and Ron Dixon were all moved to the Tight End position.

On the defense, Anthony Simmons a linebacker converted to Left Defensive End is leading the league in sacks with 16 and has 56 tackles, and former linebacker converted to Right Defensive End Mark fields is close behind with 12 and 60 tackles. The big acquisitions on defense were all done through early season trades this year. Sending slower veterans to the Titans and Falcons in return for DeAngelo Hall and Pacman Jones. Ty Law was picked up in week 5 of the previous year out of the Free Agency and was converted to Strong Safety upon the acquisition of DeAngelo and Pacman. Cei Grant had been starting at RE until week 12, he was unable to give the pass rush needed so Mark Fields was converted from MLB to RE. MLB is being played by second year player Landon Johnson as a rush stopping force in the middle rather than a pass rushing threat that Fields was. Thomas Davis was another big acquisition. Actually the one Rudi Johnson was traded for. He was a great tackler at the Strong Safety position. I moved him to Right Linebacker where he has excelled in preventing the outside rush to the right and has had numerous sacks all year long.
 
Here is the starting line up(in paranthesis will be their overall rating and their speed rating, all ratings are out of 99 points)...

QB: Carson Palmer(91/58) HB: Trung Canidate(85/97) FB: Travis Henry(86/88) WR: Randy Moss(99/99), Chad Johnson(97/94), Donte Stollworth(84/97), Az-Zahir Hakim(80/95) OT: Levi Jones(96/62), Willie Anderson(97/48) OG: Eric Steinbach(92/56), Dan Neil(99/60) C: Chris Terry(96/54)

LE: Anthony Simmons(99/84) DT: Odell Thurman(90/77), Davis Pollack(90/76) RE: Mark Fields(96/86) LOLB: Reggie Tongue (86/85) MLB: Landon Johnson (82/81) RE: Thomas Davis(89/86) CB: DeAngelo Hall(86/98), Adam "Pacman" Jones(83/96) FS: Deltha O'Neal (87/95) SS: Ty Law (97/94)

Here are the vids I promised from this game... still in progress. All games are played on All-Madden. Big plays are conceived by establishing the run then exploiting defensive weaknesses at the line of scrimmage. Due to their weak nickle and diem backs i moved Donte Stallworth and Randy moss to the slots to better use their speed to burn their safeties and linebackers. While having the slightly slower more clutch guys like Hakim and CJ on the outside to draw coverage to them. This strategy worked well... Randy has 3 TDs. so far...

Ty Law's return to New England is shweet... SO Shweet!
Video One

Randy Moss... catching Carson Palmer's 50th TD on the season... breaking Peyton's record... in week 14... Wooo-Hooo

Franchise Years [20 Nov 2005|02:57am]

iamunclejessie
Hey. I've been saving up to get the new Madden 06 and decided to finish up my current season on Madden 05. I did and when I tried to go to the off-season owner's mode, it wouldn't let me because it was the end of my 30th franchise year. I thought that 05 had more years than that.

I haven't gotten a chance to play the new edition of Madden due to low funds. I was about to go rent it but I had a question to ask first. Is there anyway to turn off the QB view or are you stuck in it?

Superstar Mode and precision passing [24 Aug 2005|08:35am]
jaydeewindsor
I'm playing superstar mode (i'm a running back) drafted in the 3rd round by the 49ers... I got player of the week 5 times in a row and still can't get any recognition ie. get in the performance institute or get my comments taken seriously by my agent or media... What's does it take?

Precision passing isn't that bad, what i do is simply hold down R2 for PS2 and press the button twice for the reciever i want to pass to. If you try precision passing with the analog stick it's pretty hard and not something i want to get used to. Usually before the snap i'll change the primary reciever to the one i don't want to throw too... like if i want to throw to the right side i'll change it to the reciever on the left, when i snap the ball i just move back and hold R2 until the right side reciever is in position than i just press the button for that reciever twice. Simple!
