Sooo…I’ve been anticipating this demo for sometime now. I was anxious to see what they added to the game for the first time right in my face on my T.V. (As I tried it already at different events — not the same).

I finally played the demo (PS3 version) and what I came across is  a very stripped down version of the full retail game. No announcers — which  I was looking forward to, one, because it helps with the overall atmosphere but also I wanted to see if they added new dialogue and see just the overall way the commentary was produced, did they let Gus Johnson loose this time? I felt  he was a little held back last year. Even the referees don’t announce penalties.

Online Communities: Power to the Player

Shady players dominating the leaderboards, no OTP stat tracking, and the big one, wanting to play at a different setting than what EA SPORTS considers the standard for ranked games. When the designers at Tiburon sat down and wanted to tackle these issues, they came up with this solution: Online Communities.

Hey Madden fans-

I’m Josh Looman, senior designer on Madden NFL 12, in charge of everything new in Franchise mode this year. First, let me explain how much I care about Franchise mode to give you some insight into how excited I am about this year’s features.

I was the sole designer on Franchise mode for Xbox and PS2 in Madden NFL 04, 05, 06 and 07. A lot of the features we added back then are some of my all-time favorites. I left Madden to be the lead designer on NFL Head Coach 09 and with my team, we created the most in-depth career mode game ever (as far as I’m concerned). I came back to Madden with the goal to provide the fans with an experience similar to Head Coach 09…tons of features and depth within the Franchise and Superstar modes.
