    k, just a brief summary of tidbits ive come across in the aftermath of E3 about wii sports from EA, ie Madden, Tiger Woods, etc.

    Madden 08

    first off, it will be online. secondly, there will be lobbies. thirdly, there will be no friend codes to speak of. this is all confirmed at a stage demo at E3 found here

    IGN INTERVIEW
    sounds good to me. should be better than last year which was good.


    TIGER WOODS 08

    really haven't found too much about this yet, as to wheter its online or not, wheter you can choose your clubs, etc. here is a trailer, but this is probably designed for the 360 and PS3 rather than than wii.

    NBA LIVE 08

    excited about this. really excited. indept interview here which i will now quote:

    seems natural, it is their first go at it. family play is here as well, and the miis are all over EA.

    gameplay almost sounds like NBA on NBC, if you remember that far back. i think they will add more stuff as time progresses, such as calling a play, for god's sake, wish i could play through a game without having do that. back on topic, it seems like most bugs will be fixed in time. and now to the really good news:

    w00t!! :smilewinkgrin: :smilewinkgrin:

    as much as 4v4! its like wireless LAN! granted, you can't as of yet, use more than 2 consoles, but there will be a menu like you were going to start an offline game beforehand, where you can flip-flop who can be on both sides. this is awesome!

    FIFA 08

    same as Madden, basically. online, Reggie confirms. long interview here and a quote about online:

    that's about all i can devote my attention to FIFA, never been that big on it.

    NHL 08

    not on wii, nor is 2K8 :cryin:

    MLB 08 The Show

    Play Station exclsive, however rumors are that MLB 2K8 coming. it has not been officially announced yet. will continue to follow this.

    well there you go. i didn't include Bowling, only 29.99 w00t! or Mario and Sonic or Mario Strikers: Charged which I'm all looking forward to, because they're not EA licensed. anyway, hope this helps somebody as it did me, and if you'd like to, leave a little rep.:wink:

    If you are new to EA sports games, then you don't deserve to breath oxygen.

    Yeah, it's pretty uncommon for a gamer to not know about EA Sports. Anyway, I will probably get Mario and Sonic, but if I had to stick with EA, then I'd pick MLB 08 The Show.

    Shame there is no NHL 08 for the Wii.
    Madden and NBA should be good though.

    I'm really excited to see what they do with Fifa '08 on Wii. Always been a huge soccer/fifa fan

  10. bumping a few week old thread on madden but i didnt want to start a new one

    i just reserved my copy of madden at gamestop today. i was going to purchase 2007 but they said it comes out august 15th. therefore i might as well wait a few days and go pick up 2008 right?

    j-e-t-s jets jets jets!

    i cant wait to play! its going to be extremely wierd on the wii since i have yet to play any sports games (minus wiisports) and im used to ps2 and xbox

    im extremely anxious

    Believe it or not, you will probably be playing like a pro within the first game or two because the controls work very well on Madden 07'; 08' should be better! The controls actually feel very real, except for kicking which you have to do with your arm in a swinging motion as if it were your leg. It works though!

    woah it comes out august 14th? hmm i dind't know another online game is coming so soon

    i'm goign to get this, which is odd cause mushroomedmario dosn't do sports...

    except anything mario related
     
  13. yeah thats what i said i cant believe it comes out over the summer. it seems like madden 07 just came out! :yikes: but like i said i might as well stick it out and wait till it comes out.....it was either that or chicken shoot with the wiiblaster LMAO! that was awefully tempting you know. but seeing as how id be the only ass playing it and my bf hanging his head in shame with a video camera in hand (because you know that stupidity would make its away to youtube), id get a game we'll both play. madden 08 it is :)

    wow thats not what gamestop told me. i think they were idiots but one kid kept flirting with me. he gave me credit for games that didnt work LMAO. i went in trading my PSP (got 200$ all together with the system and about 5 games plus 5 DVDs also the 1G memory card and the one 32MB one that came with it not bad IMO but i think he messed up lol) thats how you know he was way too flirty (tried to ring up the pro stick duo adapter lmao it was funny. he didnt realize that it CAME with it! gave me 5$ for it! lmfao idiot)

    anyways enough side bar conversation, the other kid that was there said that the gameplay was awkward. i think they were sony fanboys though. they really didnt know much about the wii......didnt know about the xbox 360 either since apparently one kid was telling me about his "red ring of death" and endedup bringing the system with him.

    oh well, im sure ill like it. im very anxious and i like how interactive the wii is. itll be fun virtually kicking a football since im too spaztic to kick one in real life (charlie brown = me)

    Well the controls are definitely good, trust me. Very real feeling stiff arm, the passing is almost the best part except for running is flat out fun, and even the juke is pretty neat. I was competitive right from the start for the first time ever on a football game, usually it takes hours to get the controls down. Plus 08' is supposed to have a mode for people who don't usually play games, but this is hardly needed for 07' and most likely for young kids. I'm passing on 08' after getting 07' for like $29, and walmart still has it for that if you wanna save some cash. 08' has online, but it sounds like it won't be all that good the first time around for Wii. Anyway, just some thoughts for you.
     
  15. very cool man! i just hope i remember to use the wiimote straps for once otherwise that wiimote is spiraling right into my tv :sick:

    i found 07 for 17.99$ used at gamestop. i thought about snagging it but then asked about when madden 08 is comming out so like i siad id rather hold off and wait for 08 if its only in a week or 2.

    and i already bought the game. i traded in my games, got an extra 20% towards reserves and paid in full for the game. ended up like owing 30 cents or something lol. later traded in the rest for cash value. :)

    i cant wait till it comes out!

    anyone worried about how fifa 08 will work? cos it sounds a bit dodgy by flickin the wiimote in the direction u wan kick the ball...an am thinkin it might ruin it a bit, like tryna make it more 'fun', in a way, rather than jus hardcore footy...i also hate playin with the 'behind the goal' camera angle

    reckon u can jus play on tele cam with a gamecube pad?

    i'm goign to reserve it when io puck up mario strikers charged
     

  18. the kid at gamestop tried to pursuade me to get that game but i said no.....im not really a soccer kinda chick. he said its not really soccer oriented but i really its not my type of game.

    madden is just something a little bit better......i would get a girlie game like sims pets but my bf would NEVER play that and i hate getting games that we dont play! lol its just not fun

    I'm happy about the MLB 08 The Show. The bigs is a good baseball game but I want something more realistic. I really hope it comes to wii.

    MLB 08 The Show is developed by Sony. It has no chance of coming to Wii. Which is too bad, since my MLB 07 The Show disc hasn't left my PS2 in a couple months, and I'm not about to buy a PS3 just for that one game.
