pre-ordered the game when i was at gamestop last week. my mom wasnt able to drive me to the mall today and im busy most of tomorrow afternoon so my sister is stopping by the mall after her hair appointment to buy my order of madden 13 and bring it back home for me!! can not wait to play it. interested to try out connected careers. can u choose between franchise mode and superstar mode after clicking on connected careers? also, going to try trading a player to the colts for andrew luck so then i can beat teams with both RG3 AND Luck love love LOVE madden releses day!!!! my favorite time of the year, and thats a fact!!!!!
Maybe Im just missing it with the way the career menus are, but I hate playing in a 3-4. Is there a way to switch that once or do I have to do it every time I play a game? Not a big deal, but still a pain.
Yeah, I don't want to spend like 240 bucks on NCAA, Madden, FIFA, and NHL, so I'm waiting this one out. If franchise is solid, I might be sucked in.
So it's official: I still suck at Madden. I can't complete passes over 5 yards and I can't defend a pass to save my life. Here's the super secret strategy to beat Stugein:
1st down: Deep pass
2nd down: Deep pass
3rd down: Deep pass
4th down: Deep pass
You are bound to hit at least 1 of 4 and move the chains. Never punt. Always go for it on 4th down.
My son has been using this strategy on me for the last 4 Maddens. I consider losing 50-3 to be a solid effort on my part.
I can be moderately successful if I just call the play and let the CPU handle it. But the split second I take actual control of anyone on the defense it's a guaranteed 15 yard gain minimum for the opponent. How you people defend passes is beyond me.

Though I'm getting '13, I generally haven't played Madden all that much unless I'm playing my friends. If he's doing nothing but hitting deep passes, then you should go deep zone, and back your corners/safeties up before the snap. If he's clever enough to kill you with short passes underneath.when he sees that you've done that, then disguise your coverage until a second or so before he snaps the ball/ Most inexperienced players always snap the ball around the same time every play. Then rush 4. You'll most likely sack him if he holds the ball, or pick him off if he decides to throw it.

IDK if anyone has asked this important question, but what is the Skins salary cap looking like in the game?
I see CPU DB's make diving intercepts, running swats, jarring hits to separate the ball..and they always manage to stay with the WRs, at least within a yard or two. How to do the same completely eludes me.

Question? in connected careers can you set up a draft league? where people can draft teams from scratch? i looked yesterday but couldn't figure it out. thanks
I just need to figure out the technique then practice practice practice. It's figuring out the technique that I'm having issues with.
I will wait until it gets cheaper before Christmas to buy it. I skipped two years ago and bought it last year. I feel like I got burned last year. So much promise, yet it failed again. I am going to wait and see what the reviews are a couple of months from now. For years I only played football games. Now I play everything but. It kind of makes me sad.
I might wait until they add the infinity engine to the lineman.
