Just played my first game. Gettis is a beast in the slot!
Think I'm gonna start an owner mode with one of the franchise that could end up relocating (JAX/SD/STL) and go through the relocation process to see how that is...

It's owner mode yea. You can raise ticket prices, concessions, merch etc. Rennovate/build a new stadium, or relocate all together.

The tackling feel odd this year to anyone else? Seems like the hit stick is damn near useless now and the hits as a whole feel "soft" or something

I've been able to get a few games in and i have to say it's decent, but you definitely have to play with the sliders. the offense has a massive edge over the defense and I'm tempted to almost label it.. well... broken. the worst part is that rather than EA balance it, they instead jacked up the amount of fumbles and drops by the offense to counter it (read: laziness)
again, it's decent, but it's gonna take some time tinkering with the sliders to balance it out. I'm sure next year they'll "revamp" the defense for the 8th time, the "mechanics" of it will be that title's big new feature, and hopefully itll be back to normal.

Madden 13 had good defense.

^Same issue. On Pro, nobody does anything on me. All-Pro, I'm actually having close games.
Ginn is a beast though

All Pro the defense actually was pretty good for me. WRs were still a little too open at times, but I didn't feel like no matter what coverage I called guys would manage to magically get open. I'm waiting for some rosters that have Brandon Williams on them before I start an owner mode with the Panthers, so right now I'm having fun with the St Louis Rams (I mean L.A. Aftershocks)....

I'm enjoying it so far. It took my eyes a little time to adjust from the zoom out perspective that you used to get when you buffed play arts, and it feels a bit slower.
Running the ball feels even better and I've threw a lot of picks on the first day, but after I got adjusted to the speed I started throwing all over the place.
First online game I won 28-10 and spent most of the game running the option. The best part was that the DE was almost always spying Cam so JStew or DWill would just rumble up the field five yards. Rinse, repeat.
