  • To me it seemed like they had all the time they needed for maybe 2/3 of the game, then had to rush at the very end of it. I guess I should spoiler this.

    • So somebody give me some more info on fallout 3? Its on sale for 10$ this week at gamestop. I have a 10$ off coupon (from power up rewards) I was gonna use on Saints Row 2. How does it compare to Resitance or Killzone 3?


      I'm not in a hurry to use the coupon as i'm gonna go on vacation in 2 weeks and it doesnt expite till june 30th.

        georgiafan -

        I absolutely adore the roster mgmt, player development, and draft portions of Head Coach. If EA is actually able to put all that into Madden I will buy it immediately.

        Regarding Saboteur, that is disappointing. I was hoping I had found a hidden gem with that one. I hope I can find somewhere to rent it.
        I think Madden is gonna be good this year and like I said I haven't bought it since '08. Like you I loved the offseason in Head Coach and found myself saying I would pay 60$ for updated rosters+ability to play games+ better graphics. At the very worst you can buy Madden and turn it into HC '12. Also you can pre order it now on Amazon and get 20$ credit which you can use toward one of the other games you named. Josh Looman (who was behind HC) was the guy who was behind the madden off season this year. Just about all of important stuff from HC off season are in madden this year. The scouting, FA, expanded rosters, cut days, draft bust, trading future draft picks.

          Fallout 3 really can't be compared to those games as it's in a completely different genre. Fallout 3 is the Elder Scrolls with guns...basically the equivilent difference between Dragon Age and Mass Effect...

            So like is it built around the SP or MP? I'm not much into MP. About how long does it take to beat? Any replay value?

            • There is no multiplayer. It takes 40+ hours (depending on how you play) to beat and there's insane amounts of replay value. MOTH has played through the game a few times. It's an RPG, not an Action game.

                sounds like it will be worth the chance for me since I would be getting it for free basically.

                  I've read the blog. It sounds like Looman is finally getting the chance to do what he really wanted to do with Madden 10. I watched a video overview of Franchise Mode and the menus look almost exactly like what was in HC 09.

                  Pros, from what I've seen so far:

                  - 75 man offseason rosters, w/cut days (forces evaluation of fringe players)
                  - Real IR
                  - true player development in many categories, with hot and cold streaks throughout the year based on consistency rating
                  - no more cartooney faces for little-known or created players
                  - can trade future draft picks for players
                  - massively improved free agency bidding
                  - lots more draft scouting events (looks like it'll be almost exactly like HC09)

                  Gameplay improvements:

                  - no more suction blocking (should make 3-4 defense a viable option)
                  - there is a "tackle" button so no more running at ball carriers, and no more getting pulled into tackles by a guy not even facing you
                  - zone coverage actually works, players will hand off assignments as a receiver moves from one zone to another

                  On paper, this is the Madden I've been waiting for. It's basically the Head Coach interface, roster mgmt, and everything else, but with Madden in-game play. The best parts of each franchise. I don't think I've been this excited for a game in decades.

                  I still think there's a chance EA will kick me in the balls and make it somehow suck. But if they do come through and make a good game then I will be back on the buying bandwagon. Hell I would pay $30 a year just for updated rosters, with the game itself kept the same.

                  • Does sound perfect. I'll just let you guys buy it first and express how you feel about it first before I buy it.

                    :D


                    also, currently in the progress of upgrading my ps3 hard drive. Backing up my files right now. Wish me luck!

                      Fallout 3 would personally be in my top 5 favorite games. I've beaten it twice. It's amazing....but it's not for everyone. Most people, but not everyone. It's a marathon game, it takes time. But it's well worth it. The gun play/combat will more than likely make or break the game for you. The free aim is pretty shotty, but there is something called V.A.T.S, it's a combat queing system, in which you pick a body part to attack. It's essentially a turn based aspect, but still different than your typical turn based systems. The combat is a blend of live action, and this turn based style. I really like it, it'd just be better if the shooting worked better while free aiming. But in any case...it's still a lot of fun. The game is immense...it boasts an enormous atmopsheric open world, a very deep conversation system, a ridiculous amount of fully voiced characters, and a pretty enthralling story. It's incredibly immersive and one of the best games ever made, imho. You can easily sink over 100+ hours into the game. So many side quests to complete and locations to find.

                      As far as how the graphics have stood up...the character models are pretty terrible, but I still think the Wasteland looks absolutely gorgeous. Exiting into the Wasteland for the first time, conjures up some fond memories. It can be pretty overwhelming at first. So much freedom, and no idea where to begin. The level of detail is just ridiculous and there is an endless amount of loot to be rummaged through. Such an incredibly deep game.

                      As an added bonus...if you enjoy Fallout 3. Fallout: New Vegas is a pretty damn good installment as well. It may be viewed as a glorified expansion, but as a stand alone, I think it holds up very well. Another great game...and cheap now too. I'd highly reccommend both games.

                      • Has anyone played The Godfather for the ps3? If so how close is it to Mafia 2 (i know it will not be as good)? I know the game is cheap now used so if it's anything close to Mafia 2 I might buy it.

                        • Uploading my old data now onto the new hard drive.
                          There was one hiccup where the PS3 didn't acknowledge the new hard drive at first but a ten second google search fixed that.
                          I'm at the 90 min mark. Not too bad. I just went from 40GB to 320GB. Ballin!

                          • all of this gaming talk has me excited for NBA 2K12.... 2k11 has been one of the best games in this series since the one that Shaq was on the cover. I know it comes out in October, and I cant wait.

                            The one thing I absolutely hate are the created players in the game, with the cartoon faces. Also hate how they show blank spots instead of faces when they show the intos at the beginning

                            Thanks to BoneKrusher for this amazing sig!

                            • Yeah, they really need to fix the created players. The white guys all look ridiculous, too.

                              They also have to make Courtney Lee actually look like Courtney Lee, dammit.

                              Thanks BoneKrusher^

                                lol the white guys with greenish looking hair, or albinos for that matter. some of the tattoos are so ridiculously funny too. like the colored tats really standing out on some guys is stupid too

                                idk if u guys have ever seen it, but some of the create a players have specific dances they do after they score, like i saw some "crab" dance.... insanely funny
