Washington Redskins

Now i am a Redskin fan, today Jim Zorn was fired and Shanahan will most likely take over. I also went to the Redskin game on Sunday where the Chargers 2nd string beat the Redskins. I stayed at the Hilton Motel and it happens the Redskins were also staying there, and i got to meet Antwan Randel El and Andrew Carter.

Now, i went to the bars downtown Washington and may have had to much to drink. When i arrived back Jason Campbell was in the main lobby. So i ask him " your Jason Campbell hey?" and he replies "No!"

Haha now i am no idiot

So i say " Yes you are you bum, retire and leave the redskins alone"

i was shortly escorted to my room

Madden : Ranked 4th On Singles Ladder

So right now i am currently ranked 4th on the singles ladder since the release of the game. My record in the game on gamebattles is 54-9 at the current state. At one point I was ranked 1 but when i moved up to my college i didn't have internet so wasn't able to play for two weeks. Im currently still 4th but don't play as much at the moment. But at one point was on a 23 game win streak so that is pretty good for that site. Im also 1-1 against Rambo who is ranked 1st on the ladder

I will get back into the groove of things soon enough

Madden 10 Review

The newest installment of Madden came out in August and i have waited a few months to review it because not all the glitches come out right away and people sooner or later will discover them.

First of all there are tons of new features in this years Madden.

- "PRO-TAK" - which is a new tackling animation that allows up to 9 players tackle a ball carrier

- "Fight For The Fumble" - when a fumble happens, players will dive on the ball and a "button smash sequence" will appear and whoever hit's these buttons the fastest will win the "Fight For The Fumble"

Now there are some changes in the gameplay. First of all, there is a new rating system that has drastically changed. Overall ratings are now drastically spread out from an Peyton Manning (99 Overall), to a Colt Brennan (45 Overall). Now this was put into effect to be more realistic to NFL gameplay. Another major change to the gameplay is they slowed down the overall game speed.

Online Features:

There are two new features when you go online in this years game. First there is a Co-Op mode where you somebody at random will play Quarterback/Receiver against the CPU. Unless you know who you are playing with, it is very faulty due to communication errors. There is also an Online Franchise option where you and up to 32 others can play in an online franchise together with friends or completely randoms. Which is another great feature to this years game.

Overall : I give the game a 8.5 out of 10

It is probably the best madden game but still is not perfect. There are still faults in the game like the QB Draw Glitch

Adam Morrison Gets A Ring

So, Adam Morrison is still my favorite basketball player, and the Orlando Magic are my favorite team. So when this NBA Finals matchup ended up happening, i guess it was a win win situation for myself.

Morrison doesn't play in one playoff game, dominates the sidelines, gets in fights with Sasha V.... and gets a NBA Championship ring

Anything Is Possible.....

NBA Finals : Magic vs. Lakers Preview

So Orlando beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in 6 games. After the game LeBron James left the court and did not shake any players hands and didn't talk to the media. Dwight Howard had his way in game 6 and the only game James was held in check, only game he was under 30 points in the series. But nonetheless, now it's time for the real battle.

Orlando Magic vs L.A. Lakers

It has been 14 years since Orlando's first NBA finals trip where they were slept by the Houston Rockets. That team was lead by Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway with a great supporting cast of Horace Grant, Nick Anderson, and Dennis Scott. This years Magic team is very comparable with the 95 team. Dwight Howarad and Hedo Turkgoglu are the go to guys with great help from Rashard Lewis, Courtney Lee, and Rafer Alston. Also Jameer Nelson was a NBA All-Star this year and has the possibility of returning to the team for the finals. The Orlando Magic were 2-0 in the season series season this year with Nelson being the leading scorer in both games.

The Lakers were picked to be the guarenteed Western Conference pick. Sure, they did win the Western Conference, but they had their doubts. They went 7 games against the Houston Rockets who were without Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming. They went 6 games agsint the Denver Nuggets but many were picking the Nuggest to win the series. Lamar Odom has been questionable, the same with Andrew Bynum, and Derek Fisher cannot hit a jump shot. While everybody who does not know the Orlando Magic is picking the Lakers in 4 or 5 games, I Pick Orlando in 6.

MAG (Massive Action Gaming)

The graphics do not look the best, but does look very exciting to try out. 256 people in a single match is just scary good.

Hopefully they do a good job with the gameplay, only more great things to come i hope
