  1. This game...just makes me mad sometimes. I have this amazing game as gyro, my team for the most part plays well also, we gank the natures prophet 3 or 4 times, we are winning like 45-25, and his bullshit farming hand of midas jungling crap still gets him super farmed and he single handedly wins the game for his team. wtf else are we supposed to do. He's such a bullshit hero

  2. I know I can be the only sports gamer/NFL fan on the boards. So what do you nerds think about the recently released demo? I'm a 49ers fan, so I was ecstatic they let you play as them in the demo.

    First thought: The new physics engine, touted by EA as this big new feature, actually appears to fundamentally effect gameplay in a posititve way. One run I had in particular came to mind, I was running to the right, and ran into my right guard. In past versions of madden, you could keep running in place/bounce around until you found a gap through the hole, or got tackled. This time, my guard got pushed back into me, cut out my legs, and the run went for no gain. I found this small improvement very encouraging about the future of the game.

    Second Thought: Touch passing and precision passes appears to work a lot better now. In madden 12 if you tried to throw a touch pass, it would hang up in the air forever and more then likely get intercepted. So online madden 12 play evolved into everyone only ever throwing bullet passes. Now it appears you can lead receivers into open areas without being instantly punished if the receiver is actually open.

    Downsides: Several sound and graphics glitches in the demo, but the good part was, most of them were between plays, so it didn't effect the play to play experience as much

  3. Man I just had an epic 60 minute game. I was tinker, my first. "real" game with him, and I see what everyone is talking about. His pushing ability when he gets farmed up is absolutely absurd. Non stop teleports essentially. We lost the game, they scored 65-we scored 25, but we still killed two of their racks somehow. We were doing such a good job pushing towers and such a good job holding off in the desparation team fights that i was able to keep going with my boots of travel shenanigans. Sucks to lose when we almost had them, despite massive farm, but it felt good to realize tinker's true potential
