I noticed the Buffalo Bills tweeted an image of defensive end, Mario Williams with red contacts in Madden NFL 16, so I had to go in and check it out myself.

Just one of the "little things" in the game.

Hey everyone, hopefully the video above explains everything, but in short, we want to do a weekly rundown of some of the best highlights from the Operation Sports community.

The video would generally go live on a Friday if everything works out. If it doesn't work out weekly, then we'll go to every other week or every month. We'll be doing something similar for the other sports games as well when they come out.

If you want to submit a highlight:

Send an email to: OperationSportsYT AT gmail.com -- provide a YouTube URL or a URL to the place where we can download the clip.

Also feel free to include your name, a title for the video, and any other info you think might be needed (ex. game-winning touchdown in my CFM Super Bowl).

Hope you guys will submit some videos. If you don't, then just know I still love you all even when you disappoint me.

Madden NFL 16 is a game where I have faced mixed emotions playing it. On one hand, the gameplay has arrived in every way now, and can be put amongst any other game in our genre in terms of great-playing sports games.

On the other hand, funky design decisions and truly bad bugs really hamper the experience in the gameís main mode: Franchise.

That always brings a tension in reviewing a game. It's brilliant but left wondering why some decisions were simply made.

With all of that said, Madden NFL 16 is the best football game youíve ever played, and the experience is generally becoming one that can be described as great.

Itís that time of year again...EAís latest version of Madden is upon us. If youíre a football fan there is no better time, and if youíre a video game football fan itís, at the very least, an interesting and engaging time. The developers of Madden have gone on record that they truly understand the repetitive on-field issues that have plagued the Madden series over the last decade, and have promised the fan base to do all they can to eradicate them. Now having spent a solid 20 hours with the newest title, I take a look at just how realistic a game of football Madden 16 is on the gridiron. After all, football is a difficult game to faithfully recreate.

Check out the latest Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 trailer, featuring all 10 skaters in the game. For those of you that haven't been following along with the title, you can choose from the following skaters:
  • Tony Hawk
  • Riley Hawk
  • Chris Cole
  • David Gonzalez
  • Lizzie Armanto
  • Nyjah Huston
  • Leticia Bufoni
  • Andrew Reynolds
  • Aaron "Jaws" Homoki
  • Ishod Wair
Activision Community Manager, Josh Engen, has posted more details about the new Create-A-Park feature in the game, which includes over 250 usable objects.

Start out by selecting your location (beach, skatepark, school, warehouse, and a super-secret locale), select the size of your park (small, medium, large) and start designing your park.

Quote:
Building a park that has perfect, skatable lines with enough variability that skaters are forced to be creative is difficult, but THPS5 allows players to seamlessly switch between skate-mode and editing mode. So, as I created my own park, I would repeatedly pause construction to skate and reskate the new lines, adjusting them slightly to increase or decrease their difficulty.

THPS 5 comes out on September 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and November 10 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. You can pre-order it now. For more Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 news, screenshots and videos, check out this page.

The point of Madden NFL 16 this year, plain and simple, is to "be the playmaker."

It's been obvious ever since Odell Beckham Jr., was named the cover athlete many months ago. Receivers were about to get their time to shine in Madden, even if it meant certain receivers coming down with never-before-seen catches and them appearing to look overpowered in the game.

For many athletes, playing defense isnít nearly as fun as offensive. The same holds true for many gamers, myself included, more so when it comes to Madden. In the past, defensive efforts felt like going through the motions and that the user had little control over the outcome. Part of that is only being able to control one out of the 11 players on the field, sure, and to a large extent thereís only so much a developer can do to give the user a greater sense of control. With Madden 16, I think EA Sports has made great strides in this department.
