Video games...what ya playing? And what are you looking forward to?

Recommended Posts

Now, you can do much better than this if you have some other cards in your collection. This is the Zoo deck I use, for the most part:

http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/83481-legend-aggro-zoolock-es-full-guide

.

Thanks for this link. I was looking at maxing out my 3rd character for a Golden Hero so I might give this a shot to max out Warlock.

I used the first deck at that link and made two total card changes, and won 5 in a row! This looks like a good possibility to start leveling with.

Thanks again.

I am enjoying the Warlock zoo. I am not very good with it, but I am slowly progressing. I just passed the 150 ladder win mark with this character so I think I will continue on to try and get Golden hero for Warlock.

I am happy about the upcoming nerf (small) to Leroy and (huge) to Starving Buzzard as those two cards cause me plenty of problems in this deck. The Starving Buzzard nerf is going to change the entire meta game as it is such a big hit on Hunters on the ladder.

So I'm not that into video games, but I am excited about GTA V for either the PS4 or XBOX One. I'm sure this has been asked before, but I don't feel like reading through this entire thread: Any word on when GTA V for these next-gen consoles is coming out?

I am a very active member of the Operation Sports site. Here is my Madden 15 settings taken from my slider thread. My handle over their is Armor & Sword. I have also developed great settings for MLB 14 The Show as I am a year round player of The Show.

I can tell you with utmost confidence that Madden 15 is hands down the best of the series on the PS4 and quite frankly put too bed the 2K ghosts of past for the most part. They really made a great game of football this year.

I approach the game slightly different from some here I am sure so all my house rules and settings are posted below. I am sure if your a sim type player these settings will really give you some incredible games. I do play defense exclusively from the defensive cam now. It is a much better challenge and far more realistic.

If you have any questions about the settings let me know. I am currently playing a solo online Connected Franchise with the Miami Dolphins. I do not recommend you play offline connected franchise till the major patch in the works drops. It has numerous bugs. Most of them have been fixed server side for online CFM's.

Have fun and enjoy the settings.

As some of you know I played Madden 25 on the PS3 (still have a classic season replay going as I post this) from launch and still going. I thought it was the best Madden I had played since Madden 2005. I was able to develop a pretty solid slider set that focused on player ratings, the no user catch on offense, and no switch rule on defense.

When I say no user switch on defense I mean once you select your player you do not switch ever. You let your CPU teammates make the play if your not near the ball. This adds a big layer of strategy in who you decide to control each play, and puts a focus on team building. It really opens up the CPU offense in that regard. It is up to you how you want to play. But I want to make this fairly important disclaimer that this slider set will be developed playing this style of Madden football.

I also want to stress as I always do that no slider set is universal. Please use the set as a base and tweak to your skill level. Some people will love this set, some will not. I ask for those who are blowing out your CPU opponents on a regular basis and what not...just move on then. This set may not be for you. I consider myself a good sim style Madden player. And I can crush the CPU (as most players who have been playing Madden for like...forever) if I exploit the game. That is not what I am trying to do. I want to keep the thread with good, insightful and helpful posts from mature players who approach the game in a similar fashion. Posting box scores/videos is always welcomed. Basically....let's keep it clean fellas!

As far as general settings I can say I will be playing with 15 minute quarters no doubt. I always do. As far as the clock runoff I am holding out until I play the game and get used to the new play calling menu to see how much time I will need. On M25 I had a runoff to 18 seconds.

Game speed will be on slow and my default camera is zoomed. I am looking forward to using the camera toggle on the fly though to keep the game fresh. I can also say I will be using the new defensive player cam on obvious passing situations as I love to play on the DE/DL. When I play as a LB or Safety I will use the zoomed camera. I love the fact we can toggle on the fly.

As far as play calling rules, it's pretty simple. Use your entire playbook, keep yourself from cheesing the CPU with any money play you may discover in your time with the game. Again. I don't user catch, I don't switch on defense and I call a highly diverse playbook both on offense and defense.

I will have the game tomorrow and will begin playing and testing on All-Pro. That could change as I played on All-Madden last year but from everything I am reading/seeing, All-Pro presents a great challenge this year vs the CPU.

In the past I always have found playing on slow with no user catching triggers the many awesome catch animations you hear about. That is a cornerstone to this slider set. Playmakers was my primary influence in regards to unlocking that aspect of the game. I have always enjoyed his work in the past.

User catching update - I typically never user catch. However this year I have noticed on deep post's, streaks etc the WR's regardless of ratings are not fighting for the ball while the DB's are attacking it. So with that I began to take control of the WR on bombs only when they are covered tightly. If they break free and get a couple of steps I just lead them to the ball and do not have to user catch...but most of the time they are covered (thank you EA for making deep balls rewarding again) so as soon as I release I take control of the WR to go get the ball. It's fun, it feels earned and have at it. It won't affect your joy and simulation of the game at all. But do not do it on all other passes. Just streaks, post's and hail marys!


I do have a twitch account and will post when I will broadcast a full game for viewing if anyone is ever interested. When I play on twitch I will not skip too much broadcast elements other than not allow some mindless replays to play out so we can get the next play called and move the game along.


So strap on the helmet, and let's get ready for some Madden 15!!!


1.4 will be my final settings. The only thing that can get me testing again is after the big patch drops and if they have game play fixes in the notes. But I see them doing tuners this year for gameplay fixes....so any tuners or patches will be looked at.



Thank you everyone, for the feedback....of course discussion among yourselves regarding the sliders etc is always welcomed, box scores etc.

I will be posting my CFM box scores and game stories here for your enjoyment.

I am now officially in playing Madden mode and also getting back to my MLB The Show franchise and classic season replays. If your a follower of my channel (Todem23) on Twitch join me for some game broadcasts (Show and Madden) in the future.

Once again enjoy the game, have fun, and don't get slideritis!!! Nitpicking the game will drive you mad. It's not perfect, there are things you have to accept...sliders don't fix everything. But gentlemen, this is hands down the best console football game ever made bar non IMO....put to bed the ghosts of 2K past...seriously..they are dated on the field compared to this...just my opinion of course. I also suggest player lock on defense in the defensive cam if you want a real challenge! Amazing fun.





Tuner Update!!! EA released a tuner on 9/5/14 which addressed the user pass rush. I am happy to report EA has fixed this issue and no QB edits are needed at all to enjoy the game. I have played 3 test games thus far and have updated the slider set below to 1.4


These sliders were tested and developed exclusively for play in CFM only. I do not play Madden in "play now". Play now does play different than CFM due to confidence, XP and schemes.


Watch player confidence in CFM...it''s a very powerful variable that can/will significantly lower or raise your ratings and dice roll results on passes, catches, fumbles, sacks, tackles, INT's.
That is why Play Now and CFM play totally different.
Confidence can be a killer or great for your team and especially your QB. It is a new dynamic system that I feel is a real game changer inside CFM and far exceeds the hot/cold streaks of the last several years

Playing Madden 25 now. Finally figured out how to play with a downloaded roster. Good god, they make that difficult. I've recently been playing NHL 95 on the PC and with that game from 1995, it is dead simple to create a player and start playing with it. It's almost 20 years later and they managed to make it much much more difficult to do this. I'm not an EA hater, but this is a head scratcher

2. Is the game too easy on All-Pro and impossible on All-Madden? Thats what I always hated about the game.

Solid post Todem. I miss playing Madden because they've been so bad recently for franchise mode. I might give this one a try.

You can play Connected Franchise either online or offline. There are advantages and disadvantages to both.

Online Advantages:

1. Server side fixes made by EA are instantaneous. Where as offline you must wait for an official patch to be released.

2. Advancing (simulating) is super fast online vs offline

Online Disadvantages

1. You can't have multiple save points. Meaning once you play your game, do your draft anything. It's done. There is no going back.

2. You cannot have 32 team control. Meaning you can only control one team and play that teams games only. Offline you can control 1-32 teams and control as much or as little for said teams.

3. Server disconnect. It has not happened to me at all thus far and EA's servers are actually IMO some of the best in the biz.

Offline there are some bad bugs currently that are awaiting a patch. I do not suggest you start an offline CFM until the patch drops (ETA unknown but EA are working on it as I type this).

Online you can start your Connected Career as a Coach, Owner or player and have at it with all the fixes that EA has already made server side (sim stats were fixed, and they nerfed down the user controlled pass rush which was sorely needed).

Things they are looking to patch is some offline and online stability bugs (multi team franchise's freeze often) sim stats needs to be fixed offline and some other commentary bugs etc.

As far as All-Pro, this year it plays awesome and trust me is a a challenge. The new AI 2.0 for this years Madden is for real. CPU opponents adapt to your play calling tendencies both on offense and defense. Running the ball is truly rewarding and earned. The CPU offense will pound you with the running game...if you can't stop it. If they are co,mpleting dink and dunk and you don't stop it....they will do it all game.

You better know real football strategy this year to win with weak to mediocre teams. I highly recommend the skills trainer and gauntlet mode. It will teach you everything you need to know to be successful and play real football strategy.

The new play calling screen takes some time to get used to...but it is really immersive and deep IMO. You will find your groove and figure out how you will like to call your plays. You can

1. Use coach suggestions

2. Concept

3. Formation

4. Recently used

5. Personal package based calls

It also tracks every play and shows you how many times you have made said play call and the avg yards for or against (it will track this for your playbook for your entire franchise not just game to game or season to season). Also it will show you what was previously called by the cpu vs your play call. It is very immersive.

With this slider set I promise you player ratings matter. You will see and feel the difference between a rookie QB like Bortles vs a Brees or Rodgers. You will know and feel the difference with scat backs and power backs. Weight and momentum play a huge role. No more skating players, no more turning on the dime save for guys like McCoy or Charles, Sproles types.

They really ramped up presentation big time as well.

8.75/10

I am currently 3-7 with the Dolphins......for real. I lost the first 4 out of the gate. 2 were very close two were blow outs. Then I reeled off 3 straight wins and now I just lost 3 straight nail biters.

The Game is simply awesome.

So what is the difference between the ultimate and regular edition of madden?

I believe with ultimate (which is $10 more) you get $40 worth of Madden Ultimate Team cards (which is what I was talking with Todem about). The quickest way to build your team is via packs (like baseball cards) that you can purchase with real money. I'm cheap so I'm just earning cards through playing in game.

Is this a franchise mode or limited time use? I'm guessing its also an online thing. Explain like I haven't owned a Madden game since the year Jordan Gross was a rookie on the Panthers...because I haven't.

I have no idea why that's what I remember from way back about the last time I played made. :shrug:

I used to be a huge fan of the series back in the day but I always wanted to have it be more simulation and less flying arcade db robots.

If anyone ever moves to a different country and needs to know how to get a new power supply unit with different volts/watts, PM me. Its a confusing and annoying process that could be made so much easier but of course, their power supply units are proprietary and M$ websites are not helpful. Moral of the story, I can play Xbox One again. :D

Yep, I'm 5 hours ahead of you now in England for grad school with the girlfriend. It's weird, the UK is the a big gaming market but yet I have seen no advertisements, game stores, or just games in electronics stores at all. I assume they just amazon everything. I would at least expect fifa ads..

You get a random deck of player cards, and you play solo challenges to get better players and also coins where you can buy better players. You do have to be connected online, but you don't have to play people online because there are a ton of solo challenges.

It is pretty fun, surprisingly.

Anyone have a good source for Madden '07/'08 PC rosters? Have one from like 2 years ago, but would like to update. And I'm just being lazy posting it here because of all the Madden talk, I can probably find it if I actually look.

Any word on there ever being another NFL PC game? Sick of having to play the one from 2007, and all the hoops I need to jump through to make it work on my PC, when I want to play a football game. (No XBOX/PS)

I wish. PC is pretty much unsupported even we get a PC sports game. I love NBA 2K, but the PC ports suck. I know it's not an option for you, but I'll stick with consoles for sports games. I hope one day that will change, but I don't see it coming yet. Best bet is when emulation catches up (which may be never).

Is anybody trophy/achievement hunting for Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls?

I was reading the list of trophys and saw that you have to reach level 70 with 6 different characters. What is the best way to go about this? Do you just start from scratch with every new character and play the campaign until you are level 70? Or is the new Adventure mode helpful with this trophy?

I still play 2k13 too from time to time (just finished my 2nd season in MyCareer). There are so many missing features that are available in the console versions and bugs that have been patched on console that have never been addressed on PC. An email last year to 2K got a response that there was no plans on patching many of the bugs I found. I've heard reports that their support of NBA 2k14 was similarly insufficient. The series is great, but I was truly disappointed in the shortcomings of the PC version of 2K13. I plan on buying 2K15 when it releases later this year.

Just started playing Fuse with some friends. We all picked it up for $7 on PSN. Nothing too special about the game, but is a fun co-op shooter if you get a group of friends.

Also going back through Portal 2 to do some of the trophy challenges. Portal 2 is awesome.

I am a very active member of the Operation Sports site. Here is my Madden 15 settings taken from my slider thread. My handle over their is Armor & Sword.

Very cool that you're a FBG - your sliders have been the definitive set for a long time.

Do the sliders function well cross platform?

Mmm could not tell ya. I did not test M15 on the PS3/360. I do have a great set for M25 on the PS3 though.

Anyone else try out the Forza Horizon 2 demo yet? One of the better demos I've played in awhile. A lot to do and it looks and plays great.

Yeah, it's really fun. And I usually hate racing games (outside of Mario Kart).

Damn, I've been playing too much lately. Finished up a couple games in the last few weeks.

First was my epic first play through as a Nord badass in Skyrim. While I pretty much finished everything (most likely except for the 100 mini-quests I never found, god there were tons of them), I only rate that game OK. I know some people here will think I'm crazy as I know that's some guy's favorite game ever, but I just don't love it. Yes, there are tons of hidden gems in the game that you find by obsessive exploration, but most of the quests are only ok, and combat is actually pretty boring and uninspired. They really have no interest in evolving the basic elder scrolls format that was used in Obilvion and I think previously (only played a couple hours of morrowind), and just made it excessively bigger. I guess some people just enjoy the emersion RPG a little more than I do. Good game, just won't make one of my favorites.

After that I played Tomb Raider, and I don't think I've actually played one of those since the late 90's. Thanks to the guys that recommended I get that one, as I really enjoyed the game. Thought the gameplay was really good, story was enjoyable with what I thought was a good Laura Croft origin story, environments looked pretty nice, and a good length where you could finish it in a couple days enjoy your time and move on. Think it took me about 15 hours and that felt about right for the game. Only minor pick is it was a little on the easy side in normal difficulty. I normally don't need to push games up to hard, as I'm not looking for a huge challenge, but if I play this again, I probably will.

Up next is either finishing up SCII: Heart of the Storm or Max Payne 3.

I am head deep into Far Cry 3.

This game is bad ###. I love it. I see myself finishing it in the next 3-4 weeks. I am obsessed with exploration and doing all the most wanted quests, I did a ton of hunting to level up my equipment. Turning on radio towers to unlock free weapons, etc etc. And the story IMO is pretty damn good.

I am no doubt picking up Far Cry 4 this holiday season.

Nice! I just bought Madden 25 and FC3 2 weeks ago and thus far I've only played about 10 games of Madden and 0 Far Cry.

2K/Visual Concepts bringing 3D facial mapping to games. Pretty cool.

EA Sports has had this for a couple of years now in a few of their games. I did it in NCAA Football 14 by scanning myself at their website and downloaded it to the game. Didn't even have to be a next-gen console for it and I was amazed at how good it looked.

I'm stunned EA did something innovative.

This technology will be awesome in WWE 2k15.

I was thinking the same thing, but I wonder if it'll be included with WWE 2k15. No word yet.

I'm hoping/speculating this is the reason for the delay in the release date.

The feature has been around for at least 6-7 years. I remember scanning myself into my Tiger Woods character in like 2008. It wasn't very good back then, hopefully it's improved.
