Madden NFL 11 News Post

Kotaku has posted one of their weekly featured articles. This one courtesy of Ian Cummings, the creative director, and Ronnie Morales, the audio designer, for Madden NFL 11, respectively. There is no video, but they do offer 2 screen grabs.

Quote:
"Garrard kept the Patriots guessing, hitting [Mike] Sims-Walker for two big gains, and audibling to a huge draw play to Maurice Jones-Drew that he tore off for 18 yards on 3rd and 10. Before anyone could blink an eye, the Jaguars were at first and goal on the 5 yard line with 20 seconds left and no timeouts.

First down: lob to Sims-Walker in the corner of the endzone. Batted away.
Second down: Pass to Jones-Drew slipping out of the backfield. Knocked down at the line
Third down: Pass to Sims-Walker at the sideline. Knocked away.
Fourth and goal on the 5, seven seconds remaining. Gus Johnson and Cris Collinsworth are having conniptions, both can't believe the whole game is coming down to this. Garrard drops back in the pocket, and finds no one open. He does the only thing he can do: run. He slips between the tackle and guard, and high-tails it towards the pylon. As the defense closes in around him, No. 9 takes one last gasp and hurls himself towards the endzone. TOUCHDOWN JAGUARS!"

However its impossible for the jags to play the pats in the superbowl.
LOL dude it's just the new SB mode they have put in the game on the main menu this year. It ain''t a big deal. It's nothing more then just a mode for people to play teams they want to see in the SB agaist each other. I think it's going to be a fun mode.

the Super Bowl exhibition mode allows you to pick any team you want..conference affiliation isn't a concern.

Hell, I could sit down and write a story about a Madden game, too, but I wouldn't waste my time as I am sure 99.999999% of the people in this world couldn't care less if it isn't accompanied by some video.
I enjoyed it.

Agreed 100% with you bro. But I think because of the marketing department. Ian is not allow to put out video right now. The only time we will get offical video is within the next 2 weeks at E3. But it is a nice read.

Well don't shoot the messager. I only posted it just for people to see what he wrote. It's a nice little story of his game. We will get plenty of video soon enough my friend. E3 is 2 weeks away.

Well just a small reminder. Sorry about your eyes bleeding. I will get you a Band-Aid if that will help.

Actually......

Quote:
Jacksonville sprinted to a 21-6 halftime lead thanks to an interception and Cummings' efficient playcalling. Coming back from the half, however, Morales and the Patriots scored on their first drive, forced a three-and-out, and then scored again. But a bold two-point conversion attempt failed, leaving the score at 21-19 with 0:24 to go in the third quarter.
Morales had at least 2 possessions in the 3rd quarter. There is nothing that states they played 5 minute quarters. Maybe they did, but you can't determine that from reading that article.

sigh...i was hoping for some real info...and yah, why not post the vid for this EA?

I like to think their nonchalant demeanor this year is cover for some tricks they have up their sleeves, but I also can't help but feel like we're headed for a train wreck.

Ok I'll be waiting on you. See you there. I need help getting my fingers off those certain keys anyway. LOL I know I say E3 so much over the past week are 2. I'm so sorry about that. It's on my mind right now. I'll try to back off of it some.

Well I think we are fine. But like I said. The reason Ian can't post a video right now is mainly because the marketing department will not allow him to. I'm sure if he could he would.

another stupid presentation no-brainer that these bozo's keep on screwing up:

why is OT even displayed inthe box score? they didn't go to OT, so don't show it. it just adds a column of zeros that visually and mentally separates the 4th quarter from the final score. just friggin stoopid. I'm pretty sure that's not how it works in the real world. maybe if EA didn't display the OT column every game they would have enough disc space to actually accomplish some meaningful improvements?

Yea the overtime score box shouldn't be there. But it is no biggie.

You guys have to realize this is a Kotaku feature. Owen has started to do these weekly, there won't be any video w/ any of them, that I am aware of. It was also something that was given to Owen at the last minute. No way PR approves any video in that short of a time frame. Relax everyone, lol.

Anytime the Jaguars win the Super Bowl even in a make believe exhibition situation from a video game is a good thing.

Well to do. In 2 weeks there is going to be so many videos of madden 11. That people will get sick of it. Plus Ncaa 11 Demo comes out that weekend aswell. It's going to be a busy weekend on the 15th.

Mix and match jerseys are in, a la NCAA. That's clearly Jacksonville's new helmet with their old jersey and new pants. Were those in last year? Where you could wear an old helmet with a new jersey?
