Madden 10

29 posts in this topic

Did anybody get the latest Madden? I haven't had a Madden game for years and decided after hearing some positive reviews to give it a shot.

I like that they slowed the action down to make it more realistic, plus it gives you time to think during the play and lets you find holes to run through or open receivers to pass to. The developers said that in prior games the speed was equivalent to players running a 3.5s/40yd dash so they backed it down to comparable human speeds.

Pass defense is still difficult for me but not playing a Madden game for years it'll probably get better. There are just too many commands to remember in the split second you have to make a play. Dive, strip the ball, tackle high, tackle low, etc, etc.

Since pass defense is difficult I played against the Vikings and concentrated on the run and won 66-14. So I'd say EA Sports did a great job on the realism. grin

I think it was Gus when I played it. I have it for the Wii, everytime you'd play it, it would have been updated and would know who was hurt and who the starters were- very cool.

Isn't he suspended until week 6? I was playing Call Of Duty last night with some of my friends, one guy is from Philly and I asked him what he thought of Vick playing for the Eagles and he said they'd never sign him. I was like, Ummmm, they signed him thursday night. He didn't believe me until one of our other friends told him it was true.

I have a Wii, but would think Madden is much more suited for 360 or PS3. Is it any good at all on the Wii? I used to have the original Xbox and would always get the Madden's then.

What I like about playing it on the Wii is you act like you throw the football with the controller.

You guys might laugh about the Wii, but like I said above, I also have the PS3, and the Wii's online play is absolutely trouble free, compared to my PS3 and losing connection all the time. Don't get me wrong, the PS3 is the better unit, but for the $500 I paid for it the online should be twice as good as the unit I paid $250 for, but its twice as bad.

Nope. My friend had one, I hated it. He had a 2600 downstairs and a Coleco up, I stuck with the 2600, then he got a Jaguar.

Zamboni -

I was losing connection all the time with my PS3, and I would check and the wireless was usually around 50%.

I got a range extender and put it right next to the PS3, now the signal is at 100% and I don't lose nearly as often.

I'm sure the others playing COD WaW appreciate it too when I'm the host.

I am hardwired to my router on the PS3. Had the Wii running wirelessly and it worked great, until I put it in the living room on the LCD tv, then I had to wire it as well. I don't get how neighbors can use our WiFi signal from half a block away, but I can't get my gaming consoles to pick up a signal in the other room.

You can also try this little tip a Radio Shack guy showed me.

It allows my Wi-Fi to go about 400' now to my mom and dad's house.

Cut out about a 12" diameter piece of cardboard and cut a slit in it so you can fold it like a cone.

Cover in tinfoil, and glue it so it creates the cone, essentially making your own "satellite dish".

You can then "direct" more of your signal wherever you'd like.

We're also running (2) linksys wirelees range extenders, 1 in each house and have complete coverage anywhere.

I had heard Aug/Sep for the $100 price reduction, but I am still waiting to see it........

BlueRay and the components have all gone down in price, so its overdue.

    • Trump already signalling willingness to work with Democrats in order to bypass House conservatives....     http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/national-international/Trump-Attacks-Conservative-Lawmakers-Over-Health-Bill-417117223.html?_osource=SocialFlowTwt_BAYBrand   So now we have a supposedly extreme right-leaning Republican president cozying up to Democrats?   What would Uncle Ben think?....            
    • In order to determine which direction to go with healthcare, one fundamental question must be answered.  If an American walks in to a hospital with a sick child or with some sickness themselves and has a treatable medical condition, should a provider have a right to refuse service to that person or their child based on ability to pay?  We cannot have a true free market system unless we are truly callous enough to turn poor people away at the door.  I'm not there.
    • Ice is good in some areas of main lake but bad in areas with moving water / springs. All resort / outfitter access's are closed to vehicles but some are open to four-wheelers. side by sides, and snowmobiles including Morris Point, Long Point, Dales's and Arnesen's, which still has fish houses available as well.  As always, use a resort or outfitter road for safety as they are monitored daily.  Walleye bite has been good with many keepers among smaller fish. Fish are aggressive and having a flasher is helpful.  Jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  17-33 ft.  Best colors glow pink/red and gold. Tip up fishing for pike on fire.  Many flags of northern pike in back bays and reefs.
      Rainy River spring fishing is ON!  The Rainy River is open all the way to Wheeler's Point. Birchdale, Frontier, Vidas, and Timbermill landings are open to all boats. Wheeler's Point will be open in a day or so.  Walleye fishing has been excellent. Many eater walleyes so far with a few monsters. Right now a 1/2 - 3/4 ounce jig is enough to get to the bottom while tipped with 1 or 2 frozen shiners. Pink, orange and gold are hot colors. Many sturgeon being boated as well.     Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are unstable as current areas are opening up quickly.  Travel with caution. Many resorts using airboats at this point.  Fish houses on LOW can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.  
    • I loved BBs post game the other nite after the canucks game,  he nailed it.  Guys got to step it up and play, outside of granny and staal, the rest look like they just started playing.  Lack luster for sure.  Im still hoping they come out and play like I know they are capable of but not looking good
    • This is what I have so far and I think I'll be changing A. Hackney B. KVD C. Ehrler D. Howell E. Lucas   I don't feel confidence about any of them except KVD haha Well I already made a switched and put Dafoe in bucket A for Hackney.
    •   I asked the same thing about a Month ago...must be a contract/money issue...we don't spend money foolishly 
    • Live Target for me. Tried a Lunkerhunt and it kept sinking and holding water.
    • Oh, the hat?  Correct, I was using clone stamp to build the hat.  Of all the problems with my photoshopped images, your issue is with the hat?  I thought the crude cutting and pasting was bad enough that nobody would notice the hat.      Still, you're a massive tool and I have accepted your challenge to do it better.
