Madden 2010 News Post

The new Madden NFL 10 blog is online, taking a deeper look into pass blocking.

Quote:
"Hello Madden faithful - it's Monday, and it’s time for another blog! This week we'll be following up a little bit on the last PRO-TAK blog [link]. We covered gang tackling in detail last time, so for this blog we thought we’d dig a little deeper on our pass blocking, and also mention how PRO-TAK’s dynamic steering technology will help take our blocking a little bit farther into that next level that we know we need to hit of realism. At the top of nearly every community wish list for the past 3+ years has been OL/DL interaction…so this year we’re proud to say we’ve spent a really good amount of time improving this area, and we’ve also built a strong foundation that we can continue to add on to in the future."

I like the smoothness of the branching away from the blocking animations. It felt natural to me, I would have liked to see the linemen trying to bat down passes at the LOS though. Reading is one thing, seeing is another.

in the new animations it does seem better, but it still seems like when they take off they are going right at the guy instead of trying to avoid the guy. So in reality it still seems suction cup type.

Do you have any more videos we could look at? I like the look once they get there with their hands and what not, but why do they always bee line it into the offensive player?

Good read. Didn't see any mention of double teams, but I like the direction of this.

Yeah I've always hated the "suction cup" feel of EA blocking. We need to feel like the D-lineman are trying to avoid their blocker from the outset and only engage when it is necessary (which is almost always but we still need to FEEL it, if that makes sense).

It did appear that they were able to disengage from the OL when they needed to.. I guess we'll just have to play the game.. I feel that the new blogs are creating as many questions as they are answering...

Sweet, any news about the 3-4 OLBs blitzing angles? I remember LBzrule noticed something off about this.
