Madden NFL 13 Demo Details

As long anticipated the demo for Madden NFL 13 is set to arrive on Tuesday, August 14.


 The demo will feature two different match-ups with each being an entire game consisting of four five minute quarters with adjustable difficulty levels.

A rematch of the excellent NFC Championship game with the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers is one option while the other features two of the more intriguing teams this season with the Seattle Seahawks at Washington Redskins.

In addition the Game Face feature is available and will transfer over to the retail version while those with Kinect for Xbox 360 will also get to try out the voice commands. It’s an impressively structured demo and one that demonstrates confidence in the product.




Total Control Passing Passing is more important than ever in the realm of collegiate football, and NCAA Football 13 has taken great strides to give users unparalleled control over this element of the game. Total Control Passing allows quarterbacks to lead their receivers into open space, and reconfigured passing trajectories to allow QBs to drop their passes in between layers of coverage without leading receivers out of bounds and while also maintaining a realistic throwing velocity.

Read and React Defense Passing isn’t the only revamped element of NCAA Football 13; pass coverage has been overhauled as well. Gone are the days of “Psychic DBs” and “Super Linebackers,” as the new Read & React Defensive AI system requires defenders to see the ball before they make a play on it. This means defenders will react in a much more realistic manner, only making plays on the ball when they actually see it in the air. Now well-executed pump fakes or play action plays are more dangerous than ever, and defenders who lose track of the ball will be hard-pressed to contain their offensive counterparts.

DICE Details Battlefield 3 Update

Developer DICE today released a lengthy list of tweaks, bug-fixes, and significant changes coming to Battlefield 3. The update, which has no set release window, applies to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions.
The most notable improvements include instant vehicle kills for unguided artillery rounds, higher damage for long range hits for numerous weapons, and less lethal spawning locations. In addition, players will no longer take damage for short drops, smoke grenades will explode on impact, and suppressors no longer reduce damage when equipped.

Like this, but better and stuff.

Some fans upset over the problems this update hopes to address recently began a call to arms in the form of Blackout Battlefield. The protesters state EA and DICE “have a very long list of things to work on,” and are calling for websites to shut down and stop covering the game until EA and DICE announce what’s coming.
Now they have it. These changes come alongside more than 100 major and minor changes to Battlefield 3’s core multiplayer gameplay, vehicles, weapons, attachments, and UI, and modes. Community Manager Daniel Matros notes that this is an incomplete list of what will be an even larger set of repairs when the update is finally deployed in the near future.
For the complete list, check out DICE’s Battlelog blog.

NBA 2k12: Inevitability Blog

Da_Czar, formerly of Operation Sports now part of the NBA 2k team & writer of his own blog called Sim Citi (which can be found here),  has put up his latest blog about the inevitability of the same plays for an individual player getting stale and picked up upon by the opposing defense and how it is now countered in 2k’s upcoming release NBA 2k12. Here is what he had to say:

Similar to the Matrix and Mr. Smith’s infamous speech about it, hoop games on offense all suffer from some degree of inevitability. The vaunted memory and processing capacity ( yes I am joking) available in the current gen systems is no match for the supercomputer between your ears. So, eventually, users are bound to figure out how to stop a cpu attack.

In NBA 2K11 the AI and users were greatly hindered by the cpu’s limitation of 4 plays per player. I mean even the lowliest of basketball IQ’s are going to be able to figure out a play if it is ran repeatedly over the course of a 48 minute game. Even more so if this is a team you happen to play 4 times in a season; then meet them in the playoffs.

You already know from the play-calling insight about the living branches. I will take you through one play today to give you an better idea of how 2K’s Living  Branches aim to make the inevitable… a little bit less so. This is a medium difficulty play so if your new to the series please don’t panic. There are plenty of simple plays you can run that will not be difficult or confusing to understand. To our advanced users there are definitely more advanced and complex plays in the game than what we look at today. Continue reading NBA 2k12: Inevitability Blog
