too much motion blur, the panthers uniforms looks like poo and it's glitchy as all hell. Also Nortman can only punt 30 yards.

Very happy I decided to hold off. It's funny IGN gave this a 9 out of 10. They must be on the take.

Im a big Madden fan, but I have to say im disappointed at this years game. The Panthers didnt even change the jerseys just a new logo so how the heck did they get the 2012 ones so wrong? If you want the right one you have to use 2011.

The demo plays way better then the real game, the tackles are nowhere as good as in the demo its like all 1-on-1 tackles in the real game and no one wraps up on tackles but the demo was way better. I think thats why im upset couse its like they gave you one thing in the demo then the game comes out and its worse. Dont even try to run the ball run blocking is very bad.

On replays your screen rocks back and forth and its kinda weird and you cant turn it off, also the COM goes for it on 4th alot and im playing the Saints* last night and 2 time they passed it to Graham and he just stood there waiting 2 get hit.

Also why does Amini Silatolu have long hair? Its not hard to look at guys pics and make them right, wow I know this reveiw makes it sound like im not a fan but I was out at 11:30 last night waited in line becouse I thought this would be the one to make-up for the others... I was wrong

btw all this after only playing 4 games, 2 last night and 2 this morning..

I'm always disappointed in Madden every year. This year is no different. But the sad reality is you either protest the game or you just get over the flaws.

With that said. Luke and Norman are beast. Norman has a 78 catch rating as a rookie. Higher than a lot of the Panthers offensive specialist. I'm gonna test a defense out with Luke in the middle flanked by Beas and Davis.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
