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.

Yeah, I read they should have a update for Vick sometime this week.

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.

    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
