Anyone pickup the new Madden game yet, it came out last night?

Thoughts if you did.

 

Yeah I didn't realize it came out at midnight or I would've went to get it last night. I just so happen to live in a town with no Wal Mart. Only cheap imitations and crap stors like Dollar General and Freds.  The closest Wal Mart to me is a little over 30 mins. Probably 35ish.

my cuz said he picking it up last night at GameStop but may not have much chance playing right away caus of just having a baby.

I didn't get last years but have 2016. I understand the cheaters pic is on cover so if I get it I may have someone else pick it up and tear his pic off before I see it. Lol

My friend got the game from gamestop last night. He hasn't told me a lot about it, but he's doing the franchise mode where he's a coach and just messing around right now playing the Broncos. He doesn't have internet, so he has to travel ten minutes to another friend's house to get it. I'm going to have to get a PS4 and the game to play it. I may just try and win some money on fanduel during football season to buy it as it costs a lot just to play one game. Wish they released it on PS3.

I used to always buy Madden on the day it came out. I couldn't wait, it was one of my favorite days back in the 90's. I remember my friends and I having a huge tournament on Madden 93 where they had the greatest teams of all-time on it and I won that with 8 of us doing it over a whole weekend - best of 3's. I took the 85 Bears, every damn game was close as others had the 78 Steelers, 84 49ers, 72 Dolphins, etc.. I could do that stuff when I was much younger, didn't have to work as much. That was when Sega ruled lmao

My first impression is that it's a pretty solid game.  It's kind of the same thing every year.  Basically an updated roster with improved gameplay.  The target passing feels kinda like the QB Vision from back in the day. 

 

I don't really have any complaints yet, except for having to watch the Brady intro every time I turn on the :censored: game.  :thmdown:

 

That is going to drive me :censored: insane

Also, I miss being able to pencil in McAfee as the Punter for the Colts.

 

Vinatieri might carry the ST this year, and good for him and his HoF resume, but Patty Mac has been a 99 Punter the last few years.

 

A good punter isn't usually needed by an experienced Madden player, but it's a nice Ace to have in your back pocket against an evenly-matched opponent.

It's the same game every year, except updated rosters and slightly improved lighting. Pass.

I've read that the Madden 18 franchise mode is literally the exact same as M17, except the layout design is different. I only play M18 for franchise, but it seems their efforts were put towards the "story" mode and MUT (which I'm not a fan of).

I hate having to pay money for cards. I'll just do it the old fashioned way. I'll play some games, earn a bit of money, buy some ok cards and resell them at the auction house. Then after repeatedly making small profits for a day or two, I'll go to an auction and bid on a 90 rated card. Usually you competing against 20 other people to try and win it, so it's like "sniping" on ebay against a group of people at the last second, but I've won a few elite cards for 1/10 of the price without having to spend a penny of real money. At least my ultimate team will have Khalil Mack and Von Miller lol! I will be weak, but I can somewhat hang with the big boys and have a little luxury on my team. :)

Not sure, But don't think I'll be picking up the new Madden.

I went to my cousins house who has it. Practiced very little with it and didn't seem much different than my 2016 Madden. But mostly seeing the cheaters mug as it is loading is a real turn off!!! $60 + tax & insurance to see the most hated person(for me) in sports everytime I play  may be a bit too much for me to take. Lol.

    • Everyone forgets that Brissett is still learning. He got thrown to the wolves last year with no history with the team and becoming an immediate starter. MOST players would struggle badly in that situation, Jimmy G. excepted. He learned a great deal last year and will be better this year. The offensive play calling HAS to be better this year as does the O-line. He’ll be fine. Pick some other target. 
    • But a team might evaluate their own O line and it just might not be as good as our revamped line.  Thus, last years performance under pressure is on tape, and telling.     Draft QB's in round 1 are cheap, and you control them for a minimum of 5 years.  The price for starting QB's (even unproven) not on a rookie contract are astronomical.     Draft QB's in round 1 are cheap, and you control them for a minimum of 5 years.  Backup QB's are often 2nd and 3rd day picks, have some NFL experience and teams have a fairly decent (yet not perfect) grasp of their ceiling.  JB has much work to develop more than Jimmy Garopolo has.
    • He holds the ball too long and is slow to recognize when a WR is coming open.   Some of that is because he was hammered every play. AND... he has a slow release.   I hope he develops into a great backup........  but I would also say, my confidence, until he proves quite a bit more, is lacking
    • Brissett will be better than last year.  Its surprising how everyone forgets he was running for his life every play.  Even Andrew struggled with that pressure... all QBs do.  Brissett will be much better with a year's experience under his belt and an OL that can protect him. other GMs know this and it WILL affect his value.  The way teams spend on unproven QBs, i can see a team or two offering a 2nd or 3rd.  Heck, the Jets gave up 3 to move up only 3 spots to land an unproven QB.  And they really didnt even know WHICH unproven QB they would get.  Some teams get desperate for a starting QB, as we have seen over and over. if we dont get the trade we want, use him until FA in  2 years. i think, under the circumstances (which were stacked against him), Brissett performed better than people give him credit for.
    • If I’m a GM I say one thing.. ‘Good lord no.’   He’s a garbage person.
