Actually, I prefer to turn off the avatars and play with the normal football player models.

Here is some gameplay footage from some online 2 vs. 2 action last night:

Ugh, the movement looks stiff as hell. I guess you get what you pay for. I'll still try out the demo, but I have a better option in blitz the league II or APF2K8. I don't play madden

...Another issue I had was on kick offs the receiving teams defenders don't react until they have received the ball which lets you act like Bilbo Baggins with the One Ring and work you way unabated to the ball carrier.


I found this comparison hilarious, just thought you should know.:lol:

Picked up 3 vs 3 NHL, it's... definitely something. It's basically the NES game aptly-named "ICE HOCKEY", which I logged many hours as a wee youngen.

If I could figure out what the trick is to scoring on the other team I would find it very enjoyable, but as it stands it's fun for a bit but in that "NO YOU DON'T, GET BACK HERE!" sort of way. I almost didn't bite since the demo is so very short that I couldn't grasp the controls and flow just replaying that one-minute over and over. And what's with a score-based game, no timed game modes? Unless I missed it.

So there's my 2c if anyone will take it.

As far as I know, the game itself has gone on sale before, but not its addons.

And the addons are 320pts each, so that's not bad....Otherwise, the dlc for DD has gone on sale for countless times on steam.
Chuck Norris won the 1983 world series of poker despite him holding just a joker, a 2 of clubs, a 7 of spades, and a green number 4 from Uno and a monopoly 'get out of jail free' card.

Try using the analog stick controls if you don't already. Also, checking is a big part of the game. Really, just go for the hit, thats how you get the powerups. Hit them whenever, be cheap. As for scoring goals, you can usually get it on 2 on 1's. Aim your shots manually, the powerups help too, quickly passing helps.

If you can manage to get some friends involved, its where the game shines. That's when you can play illegal as hell, stock up on powerups, and score a ton of goals

The free trial version is now up for download if anyone was waiting to try the game before buying it:

I've been playing all day today and it really is an amazing effort for an Indie game. They could have sold Avatar Football for $15 and I'd still get it.


It's OK for an indie game...but I just feel like there are so many better options out there, I don't know that there's much of a point to it. The only real edge I'd give it is the ability to share rosters and plays. But the gameplay just felt clunky to me. There were times when I thought I'd be past a player, and all of a sudden I was pulled down. Catching passes was also cumbersome. I think it's exactly what another poster said...the collision detection is just very loose.

Even with as many problems as the Tecmo Bowl rehash had, I'd still say it's a better game. And of the arcade football games currently on sale, I'd actually give the nod to Blitz. It's definitely watered down from the original, but it still feels like a pretty polished game with lots of potential for fun. Madden Arcade on the other hand feels largely pointless (and not to mention very outdated at this point). It should be getting the NHL 3 on 3 200 MSP treatment at this point.

Anybody know if Major is still posting Deal of the Week. We missed 1 week (even though it was around Christmas he still had time to post everything else) and we did not get it last week, and still there were lots of other posts made by Major Nelson. So maybe he does not do it anymore.

He probably still does. He used to be very inconsistent about posting it so don't sweat it if he goes a week or two or even a month without posting the DotW.

If you look at Majors blog and twitter clearly he was working and did not bother to put it up.
But as Chrono Gear said Major Nelson can be inconsistent in posting up Deal of Week.

Weeks and/or months at a time are nothing new to the inconsistency of DotW updates. Just chillax and enjoy your new box. Worst case scenario you find out yourself Tuesday morning.

In any case, at this time of year they want you to get tunnel vision on holiday deals and impulse buy everything. Its a sound strategy.

Here's a Tweet from him on January 2 saying it was his first day back in the office since before Christmas.

If you look at his blog, pretty much every update posted between his "out of office" time was just the daily sale update, which could have easily been prepared ahead of time and set to auto-publish on the blog.

The "Coming Soon to Xbox Live" post takes a lot more research and actual work than anything that he posted during his time off, plus you can add the fact that basically nothing released on Xbox Live from December 22-January 2 anyway, so there was really no reason to create the list anyway.

He can care less mostly now. The ms virus infected him awhile. He acted all god like major turn off long ago. Bring in a hot chick then i can see why men would praise him. MN never was cool or anything in my book except a lap dog for MS. My ungodly 2 Cents. :bouncy:

You are correct. He explained on the podcast that he would be out of town and away from the internet. E was updating the blog while he was away.

Hey all ... the Xbox Rewards "fitness" promo was recently refreshed by Xbox Rewards to say "all addons for the list of games below", which now gives us a definite list of 800 MSP to spend, and where to spend 20 hours of gameplay. Regretfully, "Brain Challenge" and "Power Rangers Super Samurai" are no longer amongst the valid games, but at least the list is correct now. :lol:
