Madden 2016

Postby The Outsider » Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:10 pm

Bought a PS4 because it was coming out. Waiting on it to download now. Have any of you nerds played it yet? If so, what are your thoughts?

Haven't played it. Plan on getting it. I usually get it every 3-4 years. Winston is the impetus this year.

Edit: Let me know what you think of the PS4. I bought mine a couple of months ago when Batman Arkham Knight came out. Love the system so far. I generally play 2K15, Arkham Knight, Mortal Kombat, COD for fun now.

I got the PS4 like 3 weeks ago, came with Arkham Knight. I like the system and I'll use it, but I do the vast majority of my gaming on my PC.

I've been playing it all day. Have had a couple of bugs with the digital download but otherwise love the game.

Anyone have any tips for MUT? This is my first Madden game since they added it.

The Steelers/Cardinals SB story thing was weird.

How is franchise mode? I used to buy it every year but haven't touched Madden since Madden 12. Is it still that connected careers/ultimate team BS or can I play a real genuine normal franchise mode like I've done with every damn Madden since as long as I can remember playing Madden.

If they have a half-decent franchise mode I'll probably pick it up for the PS3 during Black Friday or something. (Haven't really been bothered to get a 4 yet, my 3 and PC backlog is long enough as it is.)

Otherwise I'll stick with NCAA 13 Dynasty Mode for my football game fix.

Madden 13 had franchise mode. Name was changed, but function was the same.

Have any of you tried the skills trainer? Teaches basic football strategy to improve gameplay (running concepts, reading defense, etc). It's pretty cool IMO.

OBP would have been better instructing women to play Madden Skills Trainer than doing that RED campaign lol.

I like franchise mode also, but I cheat the draft process and then go back draft the best players every year. :D

I'll be picking up Madden 16 today or tomorrow. I purchased the digital copy last year and it was buggy and required me to restart my Xbox too often.

Ok, I'm trying Connected Career with our Buccaneers, but the roster is entirely different. Missing several players (Kenny Bell, McDaniel & our KR for example). I chose "Updated Roster" when starting the league.

One of you guys know how to fix this?

I think you should have chosen the "75 man roster" option

I did. I figured out half of the problem. Kenny Bell was cut during preseason so I had to play the preseason in order to keep him on the roster. As for McDaniel I still have no clue. He isn't on any roster I start the Franchise with.

You can also go into settings and turn off auto cut I believe.

Not that it matters. Since Bell is a whopping 63ish ovr.

My corners can't cover anyone in this game... Always a WR with 5-10 yards separation.

Cover 3 works pretty well. The Bucs corners suck in man coverage.

I just discovered that they stopped making this for the PC. I guess EA hates the idea of getting my money.

This^^^ man coverage is to easy to beat in madden.

90% of my defensive calls I rush 5-6 guys using a variety of 3 deep (cover-3) zone blitz's. Make them dink and dunk it to the flats.

Everyone gets greedy and that's when I get sacks and INTs.

Same here. I wonder if a Revis level CB a an play man? I'm scouting CB in the draft for that reason. Purely "A" level man cover corners.

Also, i can get the sack if I overload the blitz to one side and get there FAST. Otherwise it's a first down because no one knows how to cover for 2 seconds.

I managed to get 90 Winston and 84 Evans for Mut. Winston to Evans is pretty awesome.
