Gang Tackling in Madden NFL 08

EA Sports and Producer, Ian Cummings, have updated their Madden NFL 08 blog with some gang tackling information and movie clip.
"After the last blog post describing some of the shots from the marketing video, I went ahead and took some time out this week to try capture some of the new gang tackling stuff directly from my XBOX 360 here at my desk. I saw a few posts calling me out - things like "where is this video you promised us?!?!?"…sorry guys, I am a busy man. I'm sure you understand…would you rather me fix some of the last second issues and add more last second features and polish, or put together a video? It's a delicate balance…I stayed pretty late last night so while I waited on builds to finish I tried to throw together what I could."

NBA Live 08 Blog Update

EA Sports and Lead Producer, Brian Ullrich, have updated their NBA Live 08 blog.
"Welcome to the third producer blog for NBA LIVE 08- for anyone who missed the first two, my name is Brian Ullrich, and I am the lead producer for NBA LIVE this year. In this entry I want to cover something that was a real topic for discussion the last couple of years: dunks & lay-ups."

Win an Xbox 360 and Forza Motorsport 2

Head on over to Eurogamer for your chance to win, good luck!
"Forza Motorsport 2 is everything we said in the review that I've been too busy to read - and more. It's certainly more to us, because its 8th June release across Europe gives us a chance to give away an obvious bundle of prizes. Obvious, but smashing. Like a yellow window in a blender. So, an Xbox 360 and Forza Motorsport 2: Limited Edition. Not only that, but we've got another couple of the Limited Editions, and a couple of normal everyday 9/10 editions to go to runners-up."

Juiced 2 Screenshots (PS3, 360)

Playsyde and Xboxyde have both posted some Juiced 2 screenshots.
"THQ releases some new screenshots of Juiced 2 in a ridiculously small size. It's still very strange graphically, but I can't say I don't like it. And Juiced 1 wasn't that bad, was it?"

All Pro Football 2K8 Screenshots (PS3, 360)

2K Sports have posted some screenshots of All Pro Football 2K8.
"Imagine Rice, Unitas, Butkus, and Singletary. In their prime, on the same field, or maybe even the same team. Imagine preparing a precision squad of mercenaries—even building your own players. Imagine football action the way football is really played. Now imagine the best gridiron game coming back for more. Imagine Football Resurrected. This is All Pro Football 2K8."

Stayed up late last night to view the All Pro Football 2K8 trailer. I'm left kind of hanging, I guess you could say. The players were definitely a little too skinny, but some of the animations I saw were jawdropping, especially the receiver slip up. Can't wait to see more of the game in action and hope I can get an early copy from 2K Sports to give you guys the real scoop.

I'll be heading out to Dave and Busters w/ the family today, then seeing my best friend to pick up my Mac and see how big his girls have grown. Nat is trembling w/ excitement to see them.

What's up with you?

QOTD: Still on the fence about buying a third football game this year, but two moments stuck out: the Elway helicopter spin (eat that Packers fans!), and the Ickey Shuffle! The animations did look pretty good, and it looks as though the line interplay is spot-on. If nothing else, it lit a fire under EA, and that can't be a bad thing.

QOTD: I wasn't blown away by the graphics in the APF 2K8 trailer. But I'm sure it'll be the best football game to play this year.

The animations impressed , but as always 2k kick *** when it comes to animation. THe Gfx in general looked good. And for sure it´s gonna be an awesome game.
