TSG All-Time Power Rankings (Madden)

TSG is ultra competitive in everything we do, nothing is more competitive than our Madden Leagues. The GroupMe is constantly full of people telling each other they stink or they are better or their SB doesn’t count or they have an asterisk. Very few of the league members give each other props other than their own little click. So BoRaiders & Jesmonkey69 came up with an idea, put together a ballot of the top 24 active TSG Madden members and have an anonymous group vote to make up the top 12 or “Dirty Dozen” of all time in the TSG Madden Community. Without further ado here are the nominees & the TSG Dirty Dozen:

#7 All-Time? ResistingFrame1 Makes His Bid For Being Top 5, After Winning His 3rd TSG Super Bowl

Whether it was the disrespect of not being voted into the Top 5 or maybe it was the possible match-up with Cincy, something lit a fire under Coach ResistingFrame1 in the playoffs despite only qualifying as a Wild Card. He tore threw the playoffs, beating Twon, then Jesmonkey, then Captain on his way to a convincing win in Super Bowl 5 of TSG Madden 25 CF (Xbox One) over the Buffalo Bills & Coach Cincy life. Whether through the air or on the ground this was one of his most dominating Super Bowl runs. This is Frame’s 2nd Super Bowl in Madden 25 on the Xbox One & his 3rd overall, proving the NFC South is a very dominant division. He may have officially cemented himself into the Top 5 of TSG All-Time Greats. Congratulations Frame on your 3rd Super Bowl Victory!

The Final Four Of The Madden NFL 25 Cover Vote, Has Begun! Cast Your Vote Now!

The cover campaign featuring both legends and current stars for Madden NFL 25 has reached the finals in the two brackets. The “Old School” and “New School” participants have been shaved down to two each with the eventual winners from each side facing off for the cover honors.

Barry Sanders goes up against Jerry Rice while Arian Foster will take on Adrian Peterson. Foster’s run is the only thing that could be considered a surprise especially having quit social media prior to the tournament. He has gone on to beat Julio Jones, Colin Kaepernick, and now Russell Wilson. There are currently one, two, three, and four seeds remaining. Peterson is likely to move on (he absolutely CRUSHED Robert Griffin III) with the Rice-Sanders pairing (both collected about equal percentage with comparable opponents) much more difficult to call.

Voting is completed through the ESPN SportsNation Page. The fifth round runs until April 17th when it will move forward to the overall finals.

Delay in user control catching in Madden 13

This is a few examples of a delay in the user control catching/reaction time in Madden 13.

NBA 2k13 Gameplay Enhancements via Game Designer Mike Wang

The weeks following E3 are generally slow to deliver news as companies settle in following their announcements and showings and prepare for upcoming marketing pushes as respective releases near. That has been the case at this point with pretty much every sports game slated for the fall – but NBA 2K13 is in such position of strength that smaller or even vague details can be mentioned casually that are ultimately worthy of discussion.

Two recent ones come from lead gameplay designer Mike Wang (@Beluba), who probably has as much or more credibility than any other sports game developer, commenting on the Isomotion dribbling controls and work being done with physics.

NCAA 13 GAMEPLAY OVERVIEW

 

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.
