That throwback jersey made Ben Roethlisberger look like a bumble bee.

Seriously though, it all sounds good.

I got a question, why'd you guys remove all the dynamic camera cuts and zooms you gave us in Madden 12? Lol. Why was this area dumbed down? Why did you choose to show the same cut scene after almost every play this year? I would love to see those answered.

Oh, they DID palette swap on Jim and Phil's shirts and ties. Lol. That's good, I guess. This Madden Monday was a bit weak, tho. I know they got KILLED with more presentation questions that was more presentation related. Madden Moments are not related to presentation. That's a game play mode. Whatever...

Anyway, what's in the demo is cool for now and I'm really digging the game. I thought we'd see a halftime deally of Jim and Phil, at least, but only a pre-game. Hope to see more of that presentation element going forward.

I'm sure he will be swift to respond.

I'd love to know why this was removed, too.

I'd love to hear the answer to this as well, Sage.

I don't have too much of an issue with more of a first half recap montage opposed to a halftime show but I would like to see it fleshed out more. Right now I don't really see highlight plays from the first half in the halftime montage, in the demo.

That said, I think an end game recap with Simms and Nantz with full game highlights would be a nice addition. I think more people would be prone to actually watch that versus buttoning through a halftime show to get into the second half. Also, that would lay a solid highlight foundation for an around the league weekly recap show in CCM by just combining all the end game recaps from that week, into one full league wrap up.

for the achievement guys, at least the madden moment had tebow in OT. That shouldn't be to bad to get now.
 
# 12 Aggies7 @ 08/20/12 02:16 PM
Looks good but really nothing new
 
# 13 CatMan72 @ 08/20/12 03:40 PM
Sweet... now if they could just get the most basic elements of the Panthers uniforms right (like they had them last year)
 
# 14 MR Anderson310 @ 08/20/12 05:28 PM
yeah sounds cool but this stuff should have been in the game ... like more cleat options an what not .. but it looks like thats the case this year so good for madden .
 
# 15 CT Pittbull @ 08/20/12 06:45 PM
really truly honestly ..NEXT YEAR EA needs to give us a customizeable playable camera option ...this way EVERYONE is happy and we the consumer are not just stuck with what we are given...its really long overdue and has to be addressed with madden 14

I'd really like to get an answer to this. Maybe they can patch it in?

Hmmmm, sorry but what presentation?

Seriously, EA purchased the ESPN license for 15 years back in early 2005 and over 7 1/2 years later, its still NOT in Madden. I dont understand that. Personally, I think that they purchased the ESPN license just to take it away from 2K's other sports games. Why EA just doesnt copy 2K5, add to it is beyond me. Seriously, copy 2K5 and wham, done.

Playing the demo, I can barely see who the player of the game is and majority of the time, its a player who SHOULDNT be the player of the game. UGH.

So it isn't "presentation" unless it has a real TV network logo(s)?

That's kind of silly.

Not entirely what I meant.

There's no halftime show, no highlights, no post game show with highlights, no player of the game interview or at least a close up of the player with his stats as opposed to being interviewed from a side camera that you can barely see and lasts for two seconds. Thats what I meant. It doesnt need the actual ESPN, CBS, FOX, etc. logo but it does need a LOT of work and thats an understatement.

Seriously, watch videos on youtube of 2K5's presentation. Its just sad that eight years later and in so many ways, EA still hasnt matched let alone surpass an eight year old game on a previous generation system.

Sorry.....I know everyone here loves Madden but come on, I see even Madden fans complain every year about the same stuff and it never gets solved. Its time EA and Tiburon build the game from the ground up and add in what should have been added years ago. And I dont just mean presentation.
