Looks sweet, but damn it also looks complicated. That video has lots of interceptions and it's giving me nightmares about 5' middle linebacker verticals. Or DB's just sitting on my routes in perfect position. Or if I don't hold the pass button just right, boom, easy INT. I've played the old games a ton, but can't say I was ever a pro... looking forward to this nevertheless.
I threw lots of INTs as it was with the old controls. New stuff sounds great, but I'm already planning a run first attack with play action off of it to hopefully open up larger throwing windows. I know I'd have a tough time otherwise...

FWIW, people who got to test the game early are swearing LBs don't have unrealistic verticals anymore. Time will tell I guess.

Honestly I feel like their verticals were much more normal in 14. 12 and 13, they were all jumping through the roof, best athletes ever.

Hopefully they've also fixed the patch of ice that DBs hit sometimes when the WR have great separation but then suddenly the DB closes with ungodly speed to make the pick.

Oh crap, I missed out on the fact it wouldn't be out on PC. Do we know if that a never on PC or just not at launch???
Pretty sure I read somewhere that this yr will be console only, future versions sound like they’ll be on PC as long as this does well. Can’t imagine this not doing well tho

I'm still trying to figure out how to tell the wife I'm abandoning her for a month starting in mid-July.

Any tips?
My wife and daughter are going on a trip to Europe for 10 days, so my son and I will have the place to ourselves during that time. I'd like to say that I planned it that way, but it was just a happy coincidence

Really excited for this game, only thing that disappointed me it that you can’t play high school in road to glory. Now I have to figure out what position I do for road to glory to play for the Cyclones!

My company is doing a summer shutdown for the first time this year from Jul 20 - Aug 4, so would be a perfect 2 weeks for me, but my wife is a teacher so also off and have to do “family” things
