    DeMarco Murray just announced his retirement after 7 seasons.

    Hey...remember that time when we had to choose between him and Dez and the decision seemed obvious? Both are gone now, only Dez left behind a 9 million dollar hole in our salary cap...

    TO being on the "hall of fame" edition of madden 19 is some awesomeness.

    I got the standard edition, with Antonio Brown in the cover. I mostly play head-to-head online and Franchise mode. Don't care for that ultimate team crap.

    I almost didn't get it this year. Madden 17 and 18 are essentially the same game and I promised not to fall for that again. After reading some reviews and watching some videos, they really tried harder this year. It feels more fluid and realistic, and the team-building in Franchise mode got a complete revamp. So far, so good. The soundtrack still sucks, though. I play with my spotify list.

    Usually the learning curve in a new Madden is complicated...but I really think this is a beta game, nobody tested it, and it's broken.

    I can't run the ball, middle linebackers make impossible interceptions...I even swallowed my pride and downgraded to all-pro difficulty...and I still can't do anything.

    Franchise mode is better in a team-building point of view, but now everybody gets injured all the time. My whole offensive line plus two backups were done for the season after week 5. I simulated a few seasons...draft class edition is pretty the game doesn't spell to you when a prospect is a bust...that part is pretty good. I just wish they'd polish the gameplay because I became really frustrated pretty fast.

    Ohh...the soundtrack sucks ass...
