UG - Madden 11 (Full game)

Ok, EA ended up getting my $60 for Madden 11. I have played it a few times and I am happy with my purchase. Some of my complaints from the demo are fixed like the replays at the end of quarters are actually good plays. The running is still awesome, but the passing can get a little weird with some receivers watching the ball go right by them while others grab passes about 5 yards too far. The jerkiness/parkinson's disease still exists when players are in the huddle and quarterbacks can still get off amazing passes no matter how much pressure I hit them with. But overall, the game feels like a greatly enhanced version over past years. Now, I just hope for easy ways to update rosters in my franchise mode when Brett Favre signs and he is added to the Vikings roster.

pg - PlayStation Move Epiphany

"It's the SAME THING!!"

I just realized the PlayStation Move is the EXACT SAME CONCEPT as the Wii-motes. At first you think - "Oh.. motion control just like the Wii" - neat.

Consider this. The PS3 uses a camera to track a ball on your PS3 "wand". The Wii uses a camera to track the infrared light your Wii-mote emits. It's the SAME concept. The Wii one is actually done more elegantly. This is horrible! I bought my PS3 to get AWAY from the Wii. Now they're doing the same damn thing! EXACT SAME THING.

The PlayStation Move Navigation controller even looks the same as the Wii's. The control of both looks like it'd be nearly identical.

Here's an awesome link to the Onion about this thanks to my awesome fans and followers. Wii Video Games Blamed For Rise In Effeminate Violence. Thanks UG.
