EA Sports Predicts 2009 Football Season with Madden NFL 10

Beer, chips, and HDTV’s, it must be Football season again. EA’s new edition to the Madden series, Madden NFL 10, is once again predicting the 2009 NFL season by simulating each team with their current rosters. They even have included individual rewards for the leading players in offense and defense. Enjoy the simulation below, but as usual none of these results are official or guaranteed to happen.

The 2009 NFL season will, once again, be ruled by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, according to the official Madden NFL 10 Season Simulation.  With the August 14th release of Madden NFL 10 less than 2 weeks away, EA SPORTS gazed into the crystal ball to predict the divisional winners and league leaders of the 2009 NFL season.

After missing nearly the entire 2008 season due to an injured left knee, Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to the best overall record (14-2) as he compiled over 4,500 yards and threw for 47 touchdowns – also being named the season MVP and Offensive Player of the Year.

The rest of the AFC played out similar to last season, as the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans and San Diego Chargers won their divisions, while the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens secured the AFC Wild Card spots.  The biggest surprise was the performance of New York Jets rookie quarterback, Mark Sanchez, who took home the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.  It was not enough, however, as the Jets once again failed to make the playoffs.

In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles returned to prominence, winning the toughest division (NFC East), thanks to a 12-4 record.  Andy Reid was awarded Coach of the Year.  The Arizona Cardinals and Atlanta Falcons prove that last year wasn’t a fluke as they took home their division crowns.  The Jay Cutler-led Chicago Bears will also rebound in a big way, taking the NFC North division.  The New York Giants and Carolina Panthers grabbed the NFC Wild Card spots.

NFL 2009 Season Awards (as simulated by Madden NFL 10):

  • NFL MVP – Tom Brady, New England Patriots
  • Offensive Player of the Year – Tom Brady, New England Patriots
  • Defensive Player of the Year – Patrick Willis, San Francisco 49ers
  • Offensive Rookie of the Year – Mark Sanchez, New York Jets
  • Defensive Rookie of the Year – Brian Orakpo, Washington Redskins
  • Coach of the Year – Andy Reid, Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL 2009 All-Pro Team:

    • Michael Turner, Atlanta Falcons
    • Brandon Jacobs, New York Giants
  • Wide Receiver
    • Randy Moss, New England Patriots

Mass Effect iPhone: Jacob’s Story to be told

When Bioware, creators of Mass Effect and Star Wars RPG titles, released the original Mass Effect, everyone was taken back by the beauty and depth of the lengthy interactive-storyline RPG. Before the highly-anticipated sequel Mass Effect 2 is released, fans of the series may have another title to quench their gaming needs.

With the always increasing popularity of games and apps on Apples iPhone, more and more companies have decided to take part in creating games such as Konami, Electronic Arts, and Sega. Today, Bioware announced that a new game out of the Mass Effect series would be debuted on the iPhone.

This game, titled Mass Effect: Jacob’s Story, will no doubt feature and tell the story of Jacob Taylor, “a biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization’s greatest beacon of hope.” The game will be top-down, such as Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and will fit in as a 2-hour prequel of sorts to Mass Effect 2 for only $2.99.

A description of the game was released in an online survey by Electronic Arts:

The award-winning Mass Effect game universe has now arrived on your iPhone and iPod Touch! Tales of human courage and individual human achievement resound throughout the galaxy. Here is your opportunity to play the story of Jacob Taylor, a biotic-powered super-soldier who stumbles across a plot to terrorize civilization’s greatest beacon of hope. Can you prevent a heinous attack that threatens to knock humanity off the galactic stage?

* Gripping story line that enables you, playing super-soldier Jacob Taylor, to prevent galactic chaos

* Stylish art presentation delivers an animated graphic novel experience

* A blend of nuance story telling with gripping top-down shooter combat

* Experience the back story behind some of the main characters in the upcoming Mass Effect 2 (for Xbox 360 and PC)

* 2 hour story-based experience with stunning graphics, animated presentation and top-down arcade-style combat
