    I'm reserving judgement until the game is out and I hear from guys I trust regarding whether the game is really any different. I think the infinity engine physics will help, but I'm more interested to see if they've addressed anything regarding CPU AI/playcalling or revamping recruiting/online dynasty.

    Read through some stuff man! They are giving recruiting a complete overhaul, they spent time with West Virginia's coaching staff to try and make it more like the real thing (at least as much as you can translate into a game) there is also some info about "real AI" out there that looks promising for CPU playcalling and their ability to adjust to your in game strategy. for example if you crash outside on every stretch play with the MLB, they will start cutting back..... at least that's how it's supposed to work. Based on what I see so far, if they can do most of what they intend I will be thrilled and we will have a significantly upgraded game.

    I'm jaded I guess....they've done the same hype train (both EA and the GC's) the past 2-3 game cycles and either the "improvements" are not what was advertised and/or they don't work correctly.

    Remember the talk this time last year was how awesome the new recruiting would be and how recruiting on Heisman would be ridiculously hard? Reality was something very different.

    Believe me, I'd love to be wrong and be surprised. I'll definitely pick up the game if thats the case. But I'll wait and hear what you guys think rather than buying into the hype machine.

    Ah - the 3-3-5. How I miss it....:D

    Hey Zach, don't worry, EA is fixing the blocking logic for sure in 2014 and you'll be able to run against the 3-3-5. Seriously.....no joke.....it's really gonna happen this time.....4th time is the charm.

    Any chance they are adding resume in progress to disconnected user games. This is the feature I most want to see. Although I am please to see the shove pass option added

    No, the way I understand it is that EA doesnt host your user games, it is hosted by the existing xbox live PvP system and the results are uploaded after conclusion. So a disconnect is, surprisingly, not EA's fault. Also, because they aren't hosting, they dont have any info to even begin to do resume game.... at least that is my non computer programmer understanding

    They have some pretty specific info about how blockers move forward in the run game instead of hovering at the LOS. This allows guard to get to the second level and go after LBs and Safeties and also makes bubble screens possible because the WRs will actually go hit someone before the ball is caught.

    We'll see, but the specific nature of the comments has me optimistic about this part at least.

    Count me in the group of people who still expects the guard to be annihilated by a 40 OVR DT en route to a sack as soon as the ball touches the QBs hands.

    While recruiting is definitely easy, I seem to remember you staying an extra couple seasons 'cause of how much you loved recruiting ;)

    Personally, I'm excited for 2014. I've never really paid attention to the "hype" because I buy the game regardless, but the whole player fatigue has me intrigued.

    I did love recruiting but I'd love it more if the CPU were a challenge ;)

    I agree. To me it doesnt matter how much they improve the interface, If I can take a 1 star team and have Alabama's roster by year 7 on heisman recruiting it's stupid. If we set it to the hardest level we shouldn't need artificial recruiting rules, the difficulty should self correct for us.

    That being said, I'll buy the game, I'll play the hell out of it, and even if it drives me nuts sometimes, I'll love it.
