Let Me Ask You

Do you think this is an honest and accurate description of what I have posted in total re: Madden 10 thus far?

It's called context, folks. When you hear someone say that, this is the kind of stuff that they mean.

Wow. Somebody doesn't read the whole article (or really, really hates Madden).

Or likes to create drama.

Look who posted it bill, this guy was a douche bag craving attention when a few people knew who he was.

Now he is a hanger on on your and other peoples blogs who give him and semblance of attention.

Best part is he can't even form his own opinions he twists yours. Actually i think you could take legal action against that site.

That's all they should print! The demo is a joke and I can't believe you're being so easy on EA. This is 2009 and I expect and demand a functional playing football game. Continue on with your "Some good, some bad" posts. The annual sucker robbery begins again on AUG 14. Football gaming is officially dead. RI fucking P

That's obviously a Madden/EA hater. I don't know about legal action against his site though. He doesn't misquote the article, he just conveniently omits the other 90% of it. And he fortunately puts a link to the full article. Anybody with half a brain will read the original article and formulate their own conclusions. I'd still be pissed as it does seem this dude has an agenda. At the very least as the author of the article he quoted I'd log into their site and post a comment in response to his article giving your true overview.

I was kidding about legal action but in all honesty. I don't think you can post, even if giving the whole link to another site, part of an article you didn't write without permission.

Of course there are dozens of sites who do this like Kotoku etc, and sites don't care as it drives traffic.

But if a sites who article was being used complained i am sure they would have to take it down.

The guy who did it is just a tool, anyone who knows who he is from the old days, and by old I mean usenet knows what he is like.

Hey Jorge, you're an idiot. He's not writing based on the demo. He has a full copy of the game. And if you actually read the whole article you'll notice that he does indeed say the game is quite functional. In fact, he says it is better than it has ever been. Actually all you needed to read was the first paragraph of the game info in the article in question to get that. If you expect absolute perfection in a video game conversion you might as well throw away your system now and never buy another one because you will never get it.

I guess I do see the real problem now with that other guy quoting this article. It will bring idiots like this to this site.

No Rob you are the idiot because you think the demo will be different than the retail version LOL! Like there's going to be a big difference in gameplay - ha, yea suuuuure! Even Ian said the difference between the demo and retail was 2-3 weeks of tweaking. So during that time they turned a complete mess into a good functional game? If you want to waste your $60 be my guest, I'll be laughing at the OS meltdown after users have a week or two of play with it. As for Bill Abner? Remember if he doesn't play nice with EA he doesn't get the game early which means he doesn't get readers. EA does this with so many people - I'll wash Your back if You wash mine it's pathetic. Hey Bill, why don't you buy the game AUG 14 like everyone else and give us a real, unbiased review?

I think EA must have screwed Jorge's sister and never called her again. Man, he is pissed.
