  1. Not much revealed there. No surprise the character is being linked to The Yard. They're trying to move towards a system like myPlayer and the Park in 2k, but they're moving slowly.

    FOF is 100% single player with The Yard being 100% H2H geared.
    I’m failing to understand the attempted connection here.
    Cam’t provide Franchise with different/customizable uniforms, but in the Yard you can.
    This just makes Franchise players more angry.
    Where are they going with this marriage?

    Madden is mirroring NBA2Ks MyCareer. The connection is that it's all under one umbrella. I can play 2Ks MyCareer and enjoy the story and single player. Others can jump and enjoy online or whatever combination. I actually like it. You're not forced into an either or. I'll give the yard a shot once I'm full and bored with FoF.

    No Thanks. Especially if this is tied to being online. Also, considering my completely benign last name (which is shared by a former NFL starting QB) doesn't pass their ridiculous filter, I'll be skipping this.
    I think I tried it on 21 and after getting through the long cringe fest that was the prologue, I recall you only play "moments" during your NFL career or some thing like that and like 95% of the rest is simmed.
    I understand the hate, but let's not pretend like some of this isn't exactly what we asked for. Doing a pre-draft workout for a team sounds sick. Hopefully that's something we can watch draft eligible players do in the future in regular franchise since bringing in players for those visits is going to be a part of the new scouting feature.

    The pre draft workout looks like the same old “gauntlet mode” why wouldn’t they just add actual workouts

    We saw like a 3 second clip of it so i don't think we actually know what their plan is yet. Real life pre-draft visits aren't workouts, they're on field drills and classroom work. It would make the most sense to combine an on field workout like they showed with some interview type questions like NHL be a pro mode has.
    Face of the franchise should just be integrated into franchise mode with the option to activate the mode or simply play your franchise as normal with FOTF running in the background. What this would accomplish, is bringing all of the presentation aspects of FOTF into franchise mode, effectively increasing the immersion factor of franchise mode. If we’re talking pros and cons, I don’t see any cons to this course of action.
    This isn’t what people want from a “career” mode. Neither is what 2k is doing. The story modes are incredibly lame. And it’s supposed to be “my career” why am I playing someone else’s story?
    The ps3 Xbox 360 2k career modes were the best. No story. Just let us play. We write our own story. But the mode has to be deep.

    No kidding...this is what we want, even if it's a rehash. They are rehashing everything else so why not this:
    LOL @ the fact that they dedicate more than 5 minutes to creating these game modes. I literally know no one who has ever played these. It's like a 20 hour straight to DVD, last row on Netflix movie. Bad acting, bad graphics, cringe fests. What's the point?

    I would kill for a mix of this with the 2K MyPlayer potential system.
    Like let the DNA give you your base level traits and maybe even potential physical attributes like height range and then you can choose which areas for your training to help you get to the kind of player you want to be.

    What's funny is that they seem to think it's a good story. FFS they've used honest to God talented actors in these things - Mahershala Ali, Robert Patrick, Rus Blackwell. Tye Sheridan... They just still suck
    I was hoping to see some new college teams. Since they say you only flashback to the playoff I think the possibility of any new teams seems very unlikely. Hope I’m wrong.
