Let me tell you, but you all have a next gen console? None of you have yet 360 / PS3? And who has 360 / PS3 has no curiosity to know how it will be NBA 2K15 on old generations? That sounds incredible.
Nowhere it comes to NBA 2K15 old generation. Search on Google. No blog, no website, nothing. Possible that in any press conference no one ask about NBA 2K15 PS3 / 360 ??
We have thousands and thousands of sites that talk about NBA 2K15 next gen and no one website - NO ONE - who gets to ask a question about NBA 2K15 old gen? No one web site That have an hands-on impressions about NBA 2K15 Old Gen??

it is the best madden ever. Which past game was better? Though that means about as much as being the tallest midget in the room. Madden 15 is still far from perfect.

We've been crying for this for years. Great post, but it will fall on deaf ears. They simply could not care less. We are the minority, and that doesn't work in our favor. The only thing we could do, is not buy the game. Which we all know won't happen. We hold out for hope, and are constantly disappointed. I'm sorry, but the only company that listens, is 2K. They listen to the sim community.

Found this gem back when you released the first part, but I listened to the whole thing again just to refresh my memory. This list is gold man, great work!

A "Real Football" mode should be there, let us decide if we want to play that way or not. Or, add in the option for “presentation” and “real penalties” and “real fatigue” in "head-to-head vs. a friend" mode and let us make that decision. - I've been hoping for this way to long and realize that EA wants more of the arcade fan than the sim fan.
CoachDavid on September 20, 2014 at 01:44 PM.
I can't get my self to buy Madden, and I had Madden every year since 97. I would get the game day one and even at midnight. This changed after I played campus legend in NCAA and imported my player into madden.
I was OK with the QB vision cone because it added a dimension to the game which is sorely missing. I that next year when they made it optional was the realization that Madden fans ask for better football but this requires us to change how we play the game.
So, my name is David and I am a Maddenholic...I have not purchase Madden in three years. I often look at the box and read forum posts, but I take it one day at a time.
I will wait for completion to EA...long like 2k5...

MossMan I agree with you a 110% but if they make the perfect game where do they go from there? People aren't going to buy a game for 60 bucks every year just for a roster update. Tryst me I thought they were close to nailing it with I believe it was 10 or 11 and than BOOM they stripped it clean when they didn't need to. My 2 BIGGEST complaints are
NO editing of roster classes
& NO 1 button 32 team control (something that could be easily put back in)
Others than that most fun I've had in years with Madden

The real questions are what is the last year you played NHL and how much are you willing to pay for an update? NHL 15 on 360/PS3 is nothing more than a glorified patch. However, lots of the things they patched needed it. If you're coming from NHL 12 it's probably worth it for the new skating engine. However, if the game you have now is fun to you and not stale, then I'd save the money and get something else.

Here's a list of things that got looked at in NHL 15:
puck physics (doesn't bounce as high on dump ins)
Player progression (supposedly)
New commentary (although I haven't heard flattering things)
AI tweaks (don't know specifics)

I don't have the game, but I've heard mostly positive things about it. Hopefully that helps you out some.
cincy14fan on September 20, 2014 at 04:12 AM.
I just saw the pictures too where it was like 3 months after and its still bad. I am sorry, but a four year old no matter how terrible he is doesn't deserve that type of a beating.

I want good gameplay but the game is missing so much outside of gameplay! To me Madden 05/06 ps2 is still a better game just because it nails more fundamentals. 05/06 gameplay isnt that great but the whole set up of the game is just fun and engaging! Today you have to play madden EAs way or the highway and no matter how great gameplay might become in the coming years(I doubt it) without a proper deep franchise mode, full customization, options on top of options, real sim football, optimal menus, custom cameras, custom presentation, custom kicking meters, custom interface, custom custom custom! I could go on for days! These are thing they could have carried over from 2 gens ago and nailed it by now or vastly improved on so 10yrs later it would be the most unbelievable game outside of gameplay! It just makes me mad to think there has never been a complete NFL football game made and its 2014! There is no excuse!

NINJAK2 on September 19, 2014 at 06:21 PM.
JayMizzle - while gameplay will probably look close to 2k14/2k13, the ps3/360 are still capable of hosting improved cyberfaces and there were some really poor ones in 2k14. Last geners spending the same as current geners atleast deserve a few screenshots/videos..Is it really that hard to do and why would you have a problem with them doing so? Some of these current geners are acting like the 1% jeesh....
cincy14fan on September 19, 2014 at 04:53 PM.
Cabish I am confused by your last post. You talk about who has the right to tell another man about his kid (if he isn't destroying them physically and mentally) are you going to take his from from him. In this case AP did destroy his kid physically from the evidence of the markings on the kid.

Which is why it is a criminal case. If it wasn't the case and some random person saw AP give his son a spanking I would agree with you saying there is no justice of anything. Again too each his own, but when it does some come down to physically and mentally there has to be some rules.
JayMizzle on September 19, 2014 at 02:42 PM.
want some old gen gameplay videos? just youtube NBA2K13, 2K14. You get the gist. Time to buy a One.
Eski33 on September 19, 2014 at 02:16 PM.
Nice post. I have enjoyed this game more than any other Madden in recent history. I've learned to accept that no game will ever be perfect. I do believe that EA is back on track with this series.
alabamarob on September 19, 2014 at 01:00 PM.
Good post. I disagree that this the best madden ever, but I agree with the premise of the post. I have given up on sim football games, and the months of august and september are always bad video game months for me. I play more soccer on my console then football. That is sad.
jjazwick on September 19, 2014 at 12:35 PM.
You said it!!!! EA are you listening????
Barbatrucco on September 19, 2014 at 12:31 PM.
As i say in response to Ruff, with FIFA 15 EA Sports gave to old gen users almost the same gameplay of next gen users
Barbatrucco on September 19, 2014 at 12:28 PM.
Yep, i remember your blog!
Barbatrucco on September 19, 2014 at 12:27 PM.
EA Sports with FIFA 15 looks back and forward at the same time. Look at FIFA 15 demo for old gen and next gen: the fluidity and the gameplay is the same. Naturally change the graphics, but i pretend the same treatment for NBA 2K15.
I dont want a NBA2K15 old gen gameplay wich is the same of NBA2K14 old gen gameplay, as I fear.
I accept, for example, that old gen NBA2K15 has the same gameplay of NBA2K14 next gen, but not the same gameplay of NBA2K14 old gen with some plus animations. I want news about
wferguson05 on September 19, 2014 at 11:34 AM.
Historically, the new game footage is only shown from the new systems point of view. Haven't seen any new game footage for a previous generation system that wasn't exclusive to that previous generation system...

NINJAK2 on September 18, 2014 at 09:29 PM.
LOL. Great blog B but I gotta side with RNR. I put out a blog asking for the same thing as you and still nothing. Ronnie2k was nice enough to tweet my blog and I think he did that as way to feel people's interest in last gen. Unfortunately the response was lukewarm or mostly negative with most people saying "no body cares about last gen..blah.blah.blah". If it got more responses of "he's right" , "let's see footage", etc. maybe we get something. Essentially ps3/360 is in the realm where devs are saying "that's an easy 60 bones for us in regards to people who can't or haven't upgraded so why hurt our chances at a sale by showing footage that may scare them off". Sucks...
RUFFNREADY on September 18, 2014 at 08:08 PM.
2K is only looking forward; they aint looking back!!! LOL
I do hope they show some 360 gameplay!
SaC_KiNg09 on September 18, 2014 at 12:05 PM.
The real question then becomes, should the NFL be suspending someone who is disciplining his child? Once again, I do believe that he went a little too far. But do I believe that he beat him in order to inflict that much damage, no.
Cabish on September 18, 2014 at 11:39 AM.
I do t have a definate opinion on this,I'm a parent and I don't even want to see no video,honestly..I think you are right about the age being young and the punishment being extreme,but like I said who are you to tell another man about his kid( if he isn't destroying them physically and mentally) are u gonna take his kind from and take care of that child, wrong is wrong and right is right ....if a man beats scars my child I will kill him...if a man beat and scar his child I will be disgusted but that his flesh and blood not mine, this is a touchy subject .but also this day and age are having parents afraid to discipline their own child in fear of the system,and the kid runs things sometimes even hitting the parent..
truzoe on September 18, 2014 at 11:12 AM.
That's why kids these days are mentally/physically weak. Kids these days are entitled and think the world owe them something. That's why they can't finish what they start and commit suicide. I see parents at wallmart that can't controll their kids and make them look like fools. I'm just a 25 and was whooped nicely when I messed up. The kid is light so any type of whooping would leave marks. I'm not sure how bad he whooped the kid so I can't comment on that futher. I have 2 kids at home nd they get nice whoopings when the if you don't put some type of fear factors in their head they will run you over don't matter how old they are. Time outs only goes so far.
cincy14fan on September 18, 2014 at 05:02 AM.
I don't think the issue really is about child abuse in this case. To bring up criminal charges is that there was a beating where basically scarring or lasting damage was done to a child. This isn't a kid crying wolf cause he got a timeout, or a couple of spanks for throwing a temper tantrum.

The last generation knows all too well (the baby boomers) since this was a common thing when they grew up. Again, their parents came from the great depression and knew what life was like when it was tough.

I know how my dad was raised and what his punishment were. I was luckily enough never to get hit by a belt, switch, and or any other object from my father. Even if you ask they they will say it is wrong, just that is what times were like.

Just like times now where we are strict if you even touch a child people cry abuse. If it was like that I think the argument could go either way, but I think everyone knows he went a little too far. Even AP admits in a text that he went a little overboard.

I think the real debate would be is he a good dad? Is he a loving father even if he disciplines his children? Again it is his family so he should have the right to punish his kids if they get out of hand, but now with this trial it will basically see if he is fit to be with his kids. If not, he will get a one year order of not allowing to see his kids since he is the biological dad. That is what this trial is going to come down too if he is fit to be a father and around his kids.

greatness33 on September 17, 2014 at 10:29 PM.
To me 4 years old is old enough for a whooping, growing up in the south, I myself know some bad 4 year old's, and the parents don't want to discipline them for whatever reason. I'm all for whoopings lol, I use to get them, a lot, and I can admit, I was really bad as kid, and it only helped shape me, I learned what I could and couldn't do, and yeah mistakes are made, because no one is perfect, but it seems to me that since it's getting so much news, people are calling for AP's head when it's only his first offense, which i think is ridiculous, but what other way can people discipline their children, in a culture aspect
Lisac on September 17, 2014 at 09:18 PM.
I myself was hit with a wooden spoon, belt, coat hanger (Jr. High) my Mom was almost arrested and the last time I was hit was when I was a freshman in HS when my father punched me in my face and I responded by telling him enough is enough and if it happens again I was going to knock his *** out. And it ended. Now I'm a 40yr old Dad of a 13yr old son who I swore I'd never lay a hand on and never had. From day one if he has gotten in trouble all I've had to do is raise my voice and he'd be done. If done right I feel we don't need to lay a finger to discipline our children in the right manor. What's wrong these days is there's not enough love, family tine, and one on one interaction with our children for many of reasons that are out of our control. It's just the way our society is now a days. So as I think A.P is wrong for what he did I also believe as a parent if we find a way other than abuse at a young age we can discipline our children w/out violence!
zrtelford on September 17, 2014 at 07:58 PM.
So using your logic we have no right to question someones parenting if the child is being harmed? So as a parent you could do whatever? Rape your child? Sell them for sex? Punch them in the face if they mouth off, knocking out teeth if they mouth off? Extremes yes, but the Peterson is an extreme to me. he had cuts on his groin, and legs. so I have to make it more extreme so you see my point. Yes its his child. but its our job as society to protect the child if he is being harmed. we cannot simply turn our cheek.
zrtelford on September 17, 2014 at 07:49 PM.
First off, you may not like kids of today, but facts are facts. Violent crime is the lowest its been in 30 years among teenagers. FACT. secondly where do you draw the line? Whippings ok as long as it doesn't draw blood or break a bone. But isn't that a possibitly at ALL times when using this type of punishment. Answer yes. What possibly could a 4 year old have done to desrve this? This punishment I could maybe, maybe see if this boy was 13 and he had swore at his mother, or stole something. But come on. Its not 1975 anymore. we know better. we don't smoke in hospitals anymore, we don't peform labotamies, we tell mothers not to smoke and drink while pregnant...we EVOLVE. I have spanked my kids with my hand on their hands a few times. thing is...I haven't had to get that far, because I parent them. IMO spanking is a cop at we use when we are enraged. Why stop at children. I mean why not whip people at work if they screw up...oh no? would that be demeaning and cruel? But its ok to do it to a child. Maybe rethink things a bit.
Cabish on September 17, 2014 at 07:36 PM.
Maybe I feel wrong yeah,but I'm saying the system is so messed up, your kids run sht because they can cal cops and cry abuse,when ur the one that have to sell your piss and blood to take care of them
Cabish on September 17, 2014 at 07:34 PM.
I don't think physically destroying a child at four is right ,but who am I to tell him that,that's the child's father not me
SaC_KiNg09 on September 17, 2014 at 06:45 PM.
This is why this topic is so interesting. We all have had different t forms of upbringings as it pertains to discipline, but some believe what Peterson did isn't abuse while others believe he went a bit too far. I for one believe that you can't take it that far, especially with a four year old.

Maybe it is time to look at this form of discipline and probably change the way its being done. I am one who has whooped my child, but after seeing this, I'm not so sure if this is the right way to go about it.
BoltThrower74 on September 17, 2014 at 06:20 PM.
Disciplining is one thing. Using a foreign object to beat (that's what it is, folks) is flat out wrong. And this is coming from a guy, raised in Tennessee by a military father who would "whoop me good." Nevermind the fact AP's kid is FOUR, fer cryin out loud. And let's not get started on Reggie Bush saying he disciplines his 1-year old daughter, good grief. Look, I'm all about disciplining your kid if they step WAY out of line but beating is ridiculous. I got beatings disguised as whoopins that sure, I grew up to be a well-reasoned and adjusted individual, but just because I didn't grow up with problems doesn't mean "whoopins" are the right way to raise a kid. After all, there's a reason my ol' man and I haven't spoken in years. So spankings? Quick and to the point? Ok. But beatings? Not at all cool, especially to a kid that likely sees you as a hero.
DBMcGee3 on September 17, 2014 at 03:29 PM.
I was born and raised in the south, and I'm no stranger to a switch or a "whoopin", but to hit a 4 year old child 30 to 40 times, leaving wounds of that variety, takes a person with mental or emotional problems. The most troubling thing to me was the text message from Peterson to the kid's mom, where he legitimately sounded pumped up about what he was doing.

I think the biggest reason for debate is the fact that many of us grew up with physical discipline, so lots of people consider the criticism of Peterson to also be criticism of their parents, grandparents, or even themselves. I believe there is a big difference between the type of physical discipline most people have experienced and the kind of abuse Adrian Peterson has inflicted on his kid(s). Just my take, no offense intended to anyone.
MossMan84 on September 17, 2014 at 02:24 PM.
Society is a wreck and any kind of physical discipline is not possible in todays america. I also got whoopin's as a kid; belt, yard stick, switch of my chose. I think it was just part of the way most people were raised. Now days if kids have problems they need meds and counseling when back in the day a simple azz-whoopin would have solved the problem. Government n society want the public as a whole on drugs/meds and committing crimes so they advocate a no discipline society. Discipline and child abuse are 2 very different things! Now that being said, I dont advocate physical discipline nor have I ever used it for my children or any other children that I have looked over but in some cases in life I think it could have been a tool to help?
SaC_KiNg09 on September 17, 2014 at 01:52 PM.
Cabish, I agree to some extent. But do you believe that Adrian Peterson took it a little too far? This is a four year old kid we are talking about.
Cabish on September 17, 2014 at 12:41 PM.
Nobody has the right to tell a person how to discplin their child,the same I see these timid parents in the store with their little kids shaming the living day lights out of them and talking to them like they are in charge,if u don't make,support,take care of,grow or raise that child then who are u to tell a person what to do with their kid,they aren't killing or mutilating them...

That's the problem with America,that is why there are so any unruly teenagers and young people committing crimes and taking drugs ,and murdering ,beat their n ases

Thanks for reading and the kind words guys. It's very concerning how these companies have become in regards to providing information, videos, screenshots regarding last gen versions of these titles. Ubisoft(watchdogs), EA(Madden) were very secretive regarding these titles. We know that 360/ps3 are no longer the shiny new toys on the shelves anymore but people still deserve to know what they are getting especially since we aren't getting the game at a discounted price.
I give major props to Bungie for bucking the trend and actually putting out a demo for Destiny on all consoles. I expected a demo on ps4/xbone but seeing it on ps3/360 was a welcome surprise and it showed faith in their product and respect to last-geners. While there are 15 million + next gen owners there are probably ten times as many last-geners. That's enough to justify some previews and information.
