EA Screws Up Again: Madden 15 Play Call Screen Is Broken

madden 15 play call screen brokenThat’s right… as I was afraid of the Madden 15 play call screen is officially broken and full of glitches.  I thought it would have been fixed over the past few days but apparently it has not been.

Shame on you EA!

How does something so simple… so easily noticed… so blatant … and so fundamental make it this far into the development process?  I just don’t get it.

It’s either that EA Sports is incompetent or they just don’t care. Or a mix of the two, which is probably more likely.

I highlighted some flaws in the play call screen in a video I did two days ago while playing the “Pre-Early” Access, if you will.

The problems still exist and the game is slated to officially drop 8/26.

What I ask of you… Share this video! All of you!

Share this write up and video on Facebook and Twitter and tag EA Sports in all of your postings.  We need to get this in front of someone FAST.

I am sick of the way EA has done things over the years and this is the last straw.  As a consumer I am pissed off and you should be too.  Just have a look….


Here are some details regarding the above video and what is actually happening.

The first part lists the wrong plays in the wrong formation. It wasn’t as if random plays were listed in the formation… it is more so that when I select a specific formation (in this instance Nickel Big) it lists all of the play for another formation (in this instance Nickle Normal). The same thing happened to me the game previous to this one. Dime was listed in 3-4 in hat instance. To fix this problem, you have to hit B until you completely exit the playbook. Then re-enter the playbook.

The second part… During special teams the B button was not responding. I wasn’t purposely choosing punt. I was trying to get out of the punt section of my playbook and go into my regular defensive plays but it wouldn’t let me. Then when I called a time out it only gave me three seconds to pick a play. The clock is only supposed to run once the offense picks a play and it is supposed to be 10 seconds long. In this case the offense did not pick a play and the clock began counting down immediately and started at 3 seconds. At this point I ran off sides and finally the “B” button was responsive and allowed me to choose an actual play. So it cost me a time out and 5 yards.

The last part shows an audible mishap where every formation is listed as “Strong Close” so you don’t know what play you are actually audibling to, especially if the same play is in multiple formations.. For example: Power O, Stick, Bench. This has also happened to me in practice mode where the formation listed is actually blank. You can see that in this video as well at the 1:00 mark.

Again, I urge you to share this (multiple times if you have to!) and tag EA Sports in every post.  Get their attention.  If they have 1 million tags to the same issue and problem they can’t ignore it!

Madden 15 Mini Review: Early Access Gameplay

madden 15 gameplayEveryone is eagerly awaiting the release of Madden 15.  Fortunately for us Maddenites, last night EA Sports accidentally allowed EA Access members to download Madden 15.  They quickly shut the game down, but I was able to get some very valuable footage and have tons of feedback and gameplay for you!

There are a lot of glitches with the play call screen, both in game and practice mode.  It is a bit of a headache and in each video multiple, different glitches in the play call screen are discussed.

The video also covers how the defense reacts, the run game,  camera angles, a weird defensive “vision cone-like” feature and much more.

Oh yeah….your opponent can see every play you pick after you run it.  Even online! Crazy right!?! Well that’s Madden 15 I guess.

Check out the two videos below to learn and understand how all of these things work and intermingle with one another.

Killer Instinct Dojo | First Take

killer instinct tutorialIn this episode of First Take we delve into the world of Killer Instinct.

This video begins in the Killer Instinct Dojo.  This is where the game teaches you the combo system, blocking, and other intricacies of the game.  It does this one step at a time and gradually increases in difficulty.

The Dojo is great for anyone who is new to Killer Instinct.  If you are new to the fighting game genre, you may find the Dojo to become difficult in the later challenges, but stick with it! Completing it will ultimately make you a better player.

This First Take video is perfect for those who want to get a general idea of the gameplay in Killer Instinct and want to see how the combo system and other features in the game connect with each other.

Like all episodes of First Take, this video is recorded with no prior experience with the game.

Since this video was recorded, I have played a considerable amount of Killer Instinct and the game is awesome. I really enjoy it.

The combo system is simple, yet challenging when performed at high levels using all the bells and whistles.

Right now I am using Sabrewulf and Jago, but am unsure who to main.

My question to you is… Who do you main?  Let me know by commenting below!




Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest Speedrun| Glitchless Any% 44:55

castlevania 2Ahhhh….   Good old Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest.  Everyone’s least favorite Castlevania…. but I dare to be different.

Despite what the Angry Video Game Nerd and most other retro gamers have to say, I love this game.  In fact, I recently began speed running it.

What is better than seeing a game you loathe get destroyed in a speedrun??

Your 10 year old self wants nothing more than to watch me destroy this game… I know it.

Below you will find my current PB for the Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest Glitchless Any% speedrun.  There are quite a few areas where I could save some time.  Mostly these time saving tactics come in the form of execution rather than routing.  I simply have to get better!

At the end of the video I go over these points and more.

Check it out!

5 Ways Madden Season Affects Your Loved Ones

Madden Season is upon us!

This is the time of year where rivalries are born.

This is the time of year when competition is the highest.

This is the time of year when jobs are lost and relationships are ruined!


The release of Madden is like a short lived, annual case of alcoholism…

For the person participating it is hardly an issue, but unfortunately it’s the loved ones who truly suffer.

Here are 5 ways Madden Season negatively affects your loved ones.



5. Your Girlfriend/Wife Is Insecure

Your wife overhears you talking in code as you say… “Sting Pinch”, “nano blitz”, “up the A gap,” and “I got the best stick out”.

This causes your wife to become insecure and suspicious. She thinks you’re talking to your secret girlfriend on the phone…

Meanwhile, your boy is at work on the other end like….

4.  Your Coworker Hates You

You stay up all night for the midnight release.  You play for hours when you get home….

You glance at the clock.  It’s 4 a.m.  You have to get up in two hours.  You know you will never make it so you call out sick.  This forces your coworker to pull a double shift.  The texts go like this….

3.  Your Girlfriend/Wife is Lonely  

You “can’t sleep”…

As you lay down for bed, you turn to your woman and say… “Damn I can’t sleep. I think I need to go in the other room and clear my head. I can’t lay here anymore.”

Meanwhile in the other room….

1. Your Mother Thinks She is a Failure

Your mom stops over unexpectedly at 6:00 a.m the morning after the midnight release…..

EA Access Limits Madden 15 Early Access to 6 hours

ea accessWhat the hell EA!

EA Sports is up to their shenanigans again.  It was recently announced that EA Access subscribers will only be allowed six hours of access to the Madden Early Access prerelease.

In the past Madden lovers were able to download a full version of the game and play it as much as they would like until the game releases in stores.

I am not totally sure why EA has decided to limit the access to six hours this year, but to be honest it doesn’t surprise me. EA Sports is always doing something that shows a lack of appreciation to their loyal fan base, and this decision is no different.

The past years of Madden have been extremely flawed and EA has shown no compassion or care to fix many of these problems.  They don’t release patches for huge, glaring gameplay issues and when confronted about it they simply hide under a rock and have nothing to say.

The problem is that EA has a monopoly on the NFL gaming market.  The fact that the NFL and EA Sports are in bed with each other financially, it limits competition to 0.  If you want to play an NFL video game, you have to play Madden.  This lack of competition is the number 1 reason for such terrible products and lack of game support over the years.

Because of this I am not surprised by their decision or the terrible gameplay issues that have occurred repeatedly over the years.

The Top 5 Offensive Madden 15 Playbooks

This is the definitive list of the best Madden 15 Offensive Playbooks! … Well not really definitive, but it is the best list you will find!

This list can actually change once the game is released and we get to experience how Madden 15 plays. This list may also change based on how you like to play the game and the stick audibles in each formation.

I am basing this list off of my past tournament experience (since 03) and experience with the recent, previous Madden games. This list doesn’t take play style, simness (is that a word?), or team into consideration.

This list is specialized for winning at the highest level. THAT’S IT!

I am going to assume you are using a mobile QB and want to win at all costs. I mean, that’s what it’s about right?

Without further adieu… here is Big J Gleez’s preseason list of the top 5 offensive playbooks in Madden 15.

5. Denver Broncos


Denver has a pretty sick selection of plays beginning with the vast selection in the pistol. Highlighted below is the Pistol Bunch Tight End.

pistol bunch te

This formation is extremely difficult to bump, has an array of ways to attack the defense, and has a decent run game. A few specifics to highlight are the ability to hit the corner on the open side (TE side), the wheel patterns, the deeper crossing patterns, and the screen. This formation has everything you need to keep a defense on it’s toes.

Overall Analysis

Someone can definitely keep a defense guessing with the runs from both the pistol and shotgun, but that is where the run game in this book basically ends. There are some okay runs in single back, but to really pound the ball you are going to be limited to goal line. I find this to be a huge flaw in this playbook. You need the ability to stuff the ball down your opponents face late in games, and this playbook lacks the ability to do just that. Not to mention the pistol and shotgun have no QB runs and no read options.

The pass game out of the Denver playbook is top notch. Hopefully you will be up by so many points, you wont need to worry about running the clock out at the end of games, but in my experience this rarely is the case verses good competition.

4. Washington Redskins



The Pistol Weak Twins Flex is a monster. The run game out of this formation is second to none. Couple this with the Strong Close and you have one awesome capacity to run the ball and good options to attack with the pass.

pistol weak twins

Overall Analysis

The passes are better than average, but might lack the explosiveness needed to put up points fast. This offense is more of a balanced attack rather than a quick strike attack. If you get yourself in third and longs or have to come from behind, you may be in trouble.

3. New Orleans Saints



Again, we highlight the Pistol Bunch TE.

bunch te

You may notice that the Saint’s Bunch TE has a few more options than the Denver Bunch TE, which can’t hurt right?

I also want to draw your attention to the Tight Offset TE

Just look at that…. it’s beautiful!

Overall Analysis

This book has a better Pistol Bunch TE, a great Shotgun and a very workable single back. The best part is that you can also run the ball by utilize a the Strong Close as well as the I form Twin WR set. The only weakness that I see in this book is the lack of QB runs.  Depending on how Madden 15 plays, this could shift down to the number one book. We will have to wait and see!

2. Oakland Raiders



The Tight Offset in this book is the same as the Saints and comes with a full compliment of running plays, which makes this formation even more deadly in the Raiders book.

tight offset tight end

Couple this with the Doubles On formation and you will be a beast to stop! The Doubles On set has all the runs you need, corner balls to both sides of the field, pre made deep outs, V routes, and screens to both the WR and RB. The only thing it doesn’t have is the ability to do is win the game for you. You gotta do that on your own!

double ondoubles on 3double on 2

Overall Analysis

Even with this monster combo of shotgun sets, this book still comes with one of the best I forms in the game, one of the best pistols on the game, and a very workable single back. For these reasons I list the Oakland book at number 2.

1. Carolina Panthers


This book is going to be a huge nightmare, and that’s why I place this in the number one spot. Check out the combination of Pistol Weak and Strong Close.

Pistol Weak

Strong Close

strong close


Overall Analysis

This book has it all. The runs out of the Pistol Weak and Strong Close will give any opponent fits. These two sets also have enough fire power in the passing game to move the ball down the field. This will force an opponent to worry about the pass and will restrict them from 100% keying on the run.

The shotgun is also complete and includes Split Panther, Trips TE and Ace with all the trimmings.

Oh yeah…. it also has the Tight Offset Te with the screen!

Did I mention the Single Back Tight Slots?

Kevin Hart Raps About Madden 15

Kevin Hart, Dave Franco and NFL stars Colin Kaepernick and LeSean McCoy (as well as other NFL players) kick a rhyme about the upcoming release of Madden NFL 15.

It is a strange coincidence that Kevin Hart is starring in a Madden music video and in my first Madden tournament I lost in the late rounds to his brother Robert Hart, who is known in the Madden world as 40 G’s.

The video is pretty damn funny and thought it was worth a share!

This leaves me with two questions though…

Will Chocolate Droppa finally be featured on the Madden 15 soundtrack?


Who’s getting their Madden 15 on when the game drops!?!
