The MADDEN 21 Trailer Is Here!
Oh sweet glorious wonders! Football is coming back! Well, hopefully. Whether football comes back or not coronavirus can't take our Madden from us. Our sweet, sweet, Madden. Suck it, corona.
I can't fucking wait to scream in anger when someone jukes 10 defenders with an unrealistically fast Lamar Jackson. Genuinely. I'll smile when a linebacker jumps twenty feet in the air to pick off a pass I'm throwing sixty yards down field (To be fair they fixed this last year but I'm still butthurt). I'll laugh like a schoolgirl. I just need new sports.
Here's the trailer and we'll talk about our thoughts after:
First thoughts? I need to buy one of those expensive ass elite controllers. If we're about to see never before seen user control with the hit stick then I'm in trouble. I broke three different X-Box One remote sticks last year. It's like when I was a kid and none of the other kids would let me use their markers because I colored too hard. I go hard with the stick. Shut up.
Here's the explanations of the new updates from EA's website:
Feel fully in control on defense with specific pass rush moves and combos all on the new Skill Stick. Strategy is crucial, as o-linemen now build resistance to repeated moves, Adaptive AI adjustments force you to diversify your play calling, and new tackling enhancements allow for all-out precision. Explore over 50 new Superstar and X-Factor abilities fresh out of the lab designed to elevate the stars of a new generation. Pull up for a brand-new season of Ultimate Team content as you earn rewards to finesse your depth chart and flex your fantasy roster on the competition.
I honestly don't see a huge graphics change but to be honest the graphics were fine last year and this is the last game that will come out on these consoles most likely considering the PS5 and X-Box fridge are coming out next year. I didn't expect any great strides there. Looks like they focused on a bit more player control with the defensive lineman which should be interesting. I just hope we get away from overpowered "X-factor" players. That shit was ridiculous. Players can be good without having a game genie shoved up their asses.
Anyway, Madden 20 I thought was one of the better versions to date. They fixed the horrible gameplay issues of Madden 19 and overall I had a great experience with the game. Here's hoping they make those few sweet changes to take the game over the top. I see nothing here about any new modes or anything. Just adjustments to the gameplay. Which is fine, half the reason we're buying it is for the new rosters anyways. What are your thoughts?
