Gonna get it at work tomorrow!

Can't freakin wait! We 've had a full version of the game at work and I played versus a customer about 5 days ago. Everything about it is smooth from what I can tell from the first and only game I've played. The custom celebrations are the coolest most visual difference. Passing is a little more tight and mistakes are less forgivable at All Madden level. Running is a little harder, but the shakes and cuts are clean as can be and when you break away, the screen gets a little tunnel vision like. Oh, there are "redo's." If I remember correctly, you get one per half or per game. You get to do the last play over, which is sorta nice. I think it can be turned off though. There is also real-time game adapting IQ and a whole mess of cool shit in the play calling menu.

im interested in the game b/c of the online play. i hear you can join a 32 person league and play the whole season online.

i just want to know if this is going to require me to build up a team where i have to coach plays. i just want even teams and want to play and let skill be the reason someone wins or loses, not because someone spent 1 year building a team thats been coached.

I almost did that with GTA 4 ...I'm gettin this after work today though. Also from what I hear the simulation/test they put you through at the beginnning I read was really easy and so that makes the games harder?

so far i've found that there's no pacman in the game, hmmmm i wonder who else is missing

this game is definately a lot more difficult to grasp a hold of than the previous games, which is good once you get used to it. i still suck really bad since im trying to re-learn how to play this on the ps3 again. been playing madden on xbox systems for the past few years and that was hard to do coming from playstation originally

Is anyone else having issues with SLOW ass loading times on just about every play on 360?

I hope its just the disk... I bought the replacement plan.

yea defense seems to be harder. I think I might have found the problem with my sloading.

Seems you can clear the cache data on 360. I'll try it when I get home.

yeah playing d is a bit different also.

but, aggressive o-line is the shit when running the ball. big ass lineman get out and lay little db's out lol. makes for a bit easier trot to the endzone.

just finished my first game 80-0. now it's time to play on 'my skill' level

... yeap i suck, eagles already scored lol

i guess try calling gamestop near you. walmart would be too difficult to get a human answer other than grunting.

try a 7-11 near you. its $10 bux cheaper.

Well it doesn't exactly 'freeze" it just lags then starts going again. I think it may be the disc, but I haven't tried it in a different machine yet. I hope its not the 360!!!

I'm down the with dfwstangs league!!

Oh and my work has TONS left on every console, so I don't think stock is an issue. Seems most are waiting till pay day anyway.

So I figured out what the issue was. Seemed to me like it was running sluggish.
Took the external intercooler off my 360, and it ran no problem. I forgot how quiet a xbox actually was.

You automatically get the new rosters when you play online. If you're rosters aren't current, you download them.

Last year they allowed you to search by games by disconnect rate. I don't see it this year, so whoever joins my game better have a 15% or less disconnect or I won't even play.

My 360 was freezing during NCAA 09, I knew it couldn't be the disc, but I would clean it anyway when it would come up with that dirty disc error...wouldn't work everytime after cleaning the disc so I started cleaning the lens itself...that would work fine to get through 1 game, then it would start freezing again. I finally decided to lay the 360 on it's side and I haven't had any other issues out of it.

I hope my 360 dies sooner than later...I may ask for my money back on it this time...

Haven't really played it that much. Been pretty busy. Are you all playing more online and/or playing a season. Once I get to playing, I'm thinking of just playing online.
