I liked the video

Freaking....AMPED!!!

So many nice little additions that will make this game more immersive. Post-play celebrations, sideline tiptoes, convoy blocking, etc. I'm excited as ever fellas.

How about the Oregon Duck unis!?!

I also noticed they fixed Tim Tebow's face mask (my man crush in full effect lol).

56 days!

i like how that Iowa player hit the Minnesota player and the other Iowa player picked the ball up and try to run with it, until he realized it was an incomplete play.
for the ones that complained about no team celebration (i was one of them in silent complaining) problem should be solved now. the game actually looked really smooth and solid.

getting more and more excited, seems like they just added this stuff.

I liked how the other players was celebrating on the breakaway run

I didnt like the new pocket pressence, because i couldnt tell any different with that angle they was showing

I couldn't help but laugh at the height difference between Wes Lyons(#4) and Noel Devine(#7) of West Virginia.

In the '08 clip, the QB was bouncing up & down while standing in the "pocket". In the '09 clip, the QB was shifting his legs instead of bouncing in-place. The emphasis was on his footwork.

The most important change IMO is the Defensive pre snap animations.

For instance, seeing the LBs run down to the line, the Free Safety creep up showing blitz, then slowly creeping back a few steps was very much needed.

In 08, if you called a Safety Blitz, very rarely did the Safeties "actually" creep up to get a better jump on the snap. And if they did, it was sloooooowly. This looks 100x better and should really help as far as different blitz packages and confusing the offense on what the Defense is going to do.

Oh thank you for clarifying that

I am so freakin' amped for this I can't contain it!

Wow that video looked amazing!

EDIT: Sweet looking Minnesota alternates.
 
# 13 NEW_ORLEANS @ 05/20/08 03:31 PM
Wow that was nice and I love the cadence playing in the background.
 
# 14 GetYaWeigtUp @ 05/20/08 03:34 PM
That was a hot video. Everything looked smooth and well done. College football 09 will be played all the way until 2010 comes out. Cant wait.
 
# 15 coogrfan @ 05/20/08 03:36 PM
I loved the way the defense moved around before the snap, as well as the Iowa db scooping up what he thought was a fumble. The vids also make it clear just how much better the playing surface looks this year.

Good stuff.

I loved the team celebrations and convoy running. That looked awesome....but it still looks like they are using Madden 08's tackling engine.

Boy I sure hate to be the one who brings REALITY to this love fest! Um how about instead of convoy blocking how bout a real QB pocket or here is a great idea actual oline/dline interaction. Once again this is EA throwing "fluff" at us and people loving it, we really are sheep. Not one of those cool new things will do anything to gameplay. Im sorry but like I said EA putting a new coat of paint on a crap engine, instead of fixing the core problem. Hey I coulb be wrong and the game could be great, but going on Ea track record I'm going to guess once again all hype no substance

But it does affect the atmosphere and presentation which IMO is killing EA just as much as gameplay....

The gameplay I could live with because you just have to understand it aint
2ksports and it never will be and honestly there are things that 2k still needs to clean up AI wise.... But what makes EA's game unplayable is the damn lack of atmosphere no emotion... It gets boring really quickly.

So at will give them props for adding the little things to add to the realism... That doesnt mean OL and DL interaction isnt important or that shouldnt have worked on this but the two things arent related to the point where I can say Someone made a choice we cant fix A could we are adding B....

So lets give props when it should be given

That video sure made '08 look like an embarrassment. Some very nice improvements. And I liked those retinal searing grellows the Ducks were sporting.
 
# 20 Hassan Darkside @ 05/20/08 04:06 PM
Tight video, I thought the "Convoy blocking" and celebration animations were tight.

I just kinda wished they released a different video. This should be the stuff we discover on our own that we post in a "The Little Things..." thread rather than stuff they use to hype their game. I just hope there's more little surprises that's left for us to discover on our own.
