Madden 2005
Anyone know the release date and will it come out for the PC the same day as for consols?

8/17 for Xbox, GBA and Gamecube.

9/7 for PC and PS2.

Madden just got way too f'ing complicated after a while. I prefer the ESPN games.

See I'm a football coach and love all that extra stuff, with good X and Os and using hot routes and what not you can be pretty unstopable on offense in 2004.

I am not too surprised to hear that leifdawg, as the entire Madden legacy has helped bring many a young soul to a deeper understanding of the game. I have heard of and recommend to you that you consider assigning "homework" involving playing Madden in specific offensive or defensive playbooks or scenarios. The game lets you give a very very digestible and understandable playbook to a kid who just loves to play video games. I am interested in the '05 version to see if it continues to amaze me with its power as an educational medium for the next generation who may prove far wiser and more knowledgeable than that which came before. I swear this is as effective as the film room is the older players.

It's going to be Ray Lewis... he'll then break his leg in the season opener.

No way it's gonna be Clinton Portis

:lol: , there is no strategy necessary in Madden. Just put Champ Bailey in at QB, send all your receivers long, and run every play...this pisses my friends off beyond belief, because there is really no way to defend it.

There are definitely ways to stop that. All you need is to do is set up some good zone coverage and have linebackers blitz from the outside for containment. If he gets sacked he has a good chance at fumbling and he can't pass so all he can do is scramble.

For one thing thats fucking gay and takes the fun out of the game. We have people try and pull that Online. Like Liamtransdemon said, there are ways to stop it. In addition to the stuff Liam has you can spread you're dline out, and set either a safety or corner to spy on Baily.
