Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric Football Like?

February 1, 2009 -

On the one hand, you've got Madden 2009 with its highfalutin player ratings, realistic NFL playbooks and updated team stats. As we have mentioned elsewhere, Madden makes like a ouija board and guesses that the Steelers will win today's big game.

But here at GamePolitics, we'd like something a little more dependable before we risk the kids' college funds. 

Little plastic football players who spin in circles on a vibrating metal platform seem like just the thing to give us more confidence in our wager.

Yes, we're talking electric football here. But where are the Super Bowl predictions from the cult-like world of the old school game?

Electric football die-hards have their own Super Bowl, but we need them to predict the outcome of the real one. Hopefully, before kickoff...

I sooo wanna stick some Warhammer 40k figures on one of those electric football tables.

Tried it, but the Chaos Marines keep falling on their guns.

And dudes, RELAX! Think of it as a day off from having to deal with all the mess and Thompsophiles, ok?

Not everyone cares for the super bowl. Plus today is Sunday. Aren't Sundays a day off ANYWAY?

Why do you think they schedule it for Sunday?

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

Yes, but why should non-fans act like this sunday is any different to last weeks or next weeks?

Watch a different channel or turn the tv off.  If that's too simple, complain about people making a big deal about things they enjoy.

I think I'll choose option 3 and there is nothing you can do about it.

I guess you win this round. Your prize: Absolutely nothing. Congrats!

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

I've been asking myself that since I discovered I hated football.

 

I don't hate it for the mere fact it exists, I hate that it's given such importance, like a certain team winning would end world hunger or our economic crisis or something

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

Not a big football fan, I just like the comercials, besides that...nothing differant for me.Hunting the shadows of the troubled dreams.

Wel lthat's not so bad, count it as a soldier downed by gunfire, simple ^^

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

hmm would that be a 10 or 15 yard penality for unsportsmanlike conduct? (Shooting the QB when he doesn't have the ball.)

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

So this is more imporant than the gears of war DRM snaffuu.....

And befor you start in EZK this is fluff news thats neither video game related or politcail....

AE: I'll leave this one so GP's comment has context but as you've been told many times before, the comments section of an unrelated article is not the place to complain about stories GP hasn't written.


Gore,Violence,Sexauilty,Fear,Emotion these are but modes of transportation of story and thought, to take them from society you create a society of children and nannys, since adults are not required.

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric


I point this out because, Zippy, electric football has no DRM, see? It's like a DRM alternative for football fans...

Also, the GoW DRM has been well-covered elsewhere. We've covered a lot of DRM problems, just haven't been able to get to that one yet.

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

Bah its just sad to see a site fall behind, the points made for the more politicized  fluff story's  and dev closings have been made but I refuse to stop complaining about bad articles like this and others.(which basically means if tis not game retaled or political I will complain about it if a big game story is missed, the more you miss the big game related story's the more it feels the site is becoming a little to pro dev/eca, its sjut starting to feel like the site is under new onwership and thats not a good thing...)

oh and complaining how much sports suck/who cares(in the other article) is on topic and not spam.
:P

 

PS:its fine to go off the beaten track tis not fine to avoid news issues like they don't exist...

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

You've got time to write something as rubbish as this story, but not the 'well-covered'  GOW issue. Which do you think gamers are more likely to care about? Electric football (whatever the hell that is) or DRM on a computer game, an issue they care about so much everywhere else has decided to run a story about it instead of the Electric Football Superbowl.

Electric football is more or less Warhammer 40k for football nerds. Uses a vibratign table to make the pieces move.

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

And this has what to do with video games and politics....

I know that reading this little trifle has caused you great anguish, and for that I am truly sorry.

But, if you have been around long enough, you know that we sometimes run a bit off the beaten track.

Re: Forget Madden's Super Bowl Pick - Who Does Electric

If you can't answer 'em, patronise them? Sounds about right.

Infophile@Wonderkarp. Yeah, that's ads. Some advertisers use a trick to open up an appstore address, which forces the phone to shift over to it. I wish providers would be more diligent about it, even if all they can do is punish offenders after it happens05/28/2015 - 10:33am
MechaCrashFor all your wounded pearl clutching and HOW DARE YOUing, you're sure quick to resort to schoolyard insults like the petulant child you are.05/28/2015 - 10:25am
MechaCrashI wasn't even trying to offend you. I just didn't care if I did, because you're a thin skinned hypocrite who routinely argues in bad faith.05/28/2015 - 10:23am
MechaCrashYeah, smearing everyone with a broad brush is your schtick. And also, I hate you.05/28/2015 - 10:22am
WonderkarpFudge, for some reason sometimes when I access Gamepolitics on my phone, it shoots me over too my app store. I think its the Ads05/28/2015 - 9:58am
WonderkarpI'm not perpetually offended. I'm an regular viewer of South Park. I have a problem with people saying gamergaters are school shooters. That and lets be honest. I dont like MechaRash05/28/2015 - 9:55am

james_fudgeYou two can reasonably slug it out in the article in question if you want :)05/28/2015 - 8:59am
MechaCrashI wasn't expecting you to drag it into the shoutbox, either. Just when I think I have you pegged, you prove me only MOSTLY right.05/28/2015 - 8:55am
MechaCrashWhat argument? You made a joke in bad taste. I made a response joke in similar bad taste. And you are going berserk with...okay, not the flavor of HOW DARE YOU I was expecting (I thought you'd No True Scotsman, instead you dodged it entirely).05/28/2015 - 8:52am
Wonderkarpfyi, thats a self made "REDACTED" to make Mr Fudges life a little easier.05/28/2015 - 8:50am
Wonderkarphow is calling somebody out for being a [REDACTED] throwing a Tantrum? Is it cause you cant dispute my argument?05/28/2015 - 8:46am
MechaCrash"Grow a thicker skin," says the person throwing a tantrum that's filling the shoutbox.05/28/2015 - 8:40am
Wonderkarpbeen a bombing had Sarkeesian spoke, because there would be an increase police presence and nobody is THAT STUPID to make a threat like that and follow through. This isnt the movies05/28/2015 - 8:35am
WonderkarpIts what you make of them. GamerGate in DC had a bomb threat. Police were there, but GG continued to enjoy themselves and have a good time. Bomb Threats in general, you give them to the police and continue your business. I guarantee there wouldnt have05/28/2015 - 8:34am
MechaCrashhttp://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58521856-78/sarkeesian-usu-video-feminist.html.csp Remember the talk Sarkeesian had to cancel because of death threats? Yeah. That's the thing I'm talking about.05/28/2015 - 8:30am
WonderkarpI'm not defending Bomb Threats. They are idiotic and have no place in society, but as somebody who lived through several bomb threats I can tell you they are weak05/28/2015 - 8:29am
