Madden is Back! First Screens and Videos

The motto for this year's Madden: "Fight for every yard." And everything about Madden 2010, right down to the dueling cover athletes, is designed to embrace that motto. That's right, I said "dueling cover athletes." The Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald and the Steelers' Troy Polamalu, in case you haven't heard, split the box cover this year, looking like two rampaging monsters in an old Godzilla movie poster.
As usual, Madden looks to be on track to be nothing short of spectacular. EA is calling this year's version "the most customizable Madden yet," but how that impacts gameplay remains to be seen. EA has also tweaked the game's presentation, making it tougher than ever this year to tell the difference between Madden and a live TV broadcast of an NFL game.

Question(s) of the Week: Instant Replay

This week’s question: Do you like the use of instant replay in baseball games? Why or why not?

My thoughts are that commissioner Bud Selig was correct in bringing in instant replay to judge fair-or-foul homeruns. But I think that the strike zone is where instant replay is most needed. Between injuries, steroids and suspensions, baseball's only hope is to keep the game as fair as possible. And in fixing the strike zone, they can avoid all arguments.
-Joel, Pennsylvania

I think that instant replay is great because you can't always see everything with your eyes. Yes, there are still some glitches, but it's great to me.
-A Reader from Nebraska

Wait a minute. That’s it?! I guess Dugout Dispatch readers don’t care about instant replay. Luckily, I also asked you all for new baseball video game suggestions and I got some really awesome responses. Here are the best ones:

More Playoff Disappointment for McGrady

Tracy McGrady’s playoff career can be summed up in one word: disappointing.

He is notorious throughout the NBA for having never won a playoff series. For a player who is a seven-time All-Star and a two-time scoring champ, that stat is rather embarrassing.

McGrady’s Houston Rockets are one win away from advancing in the playoffs for the first time since joining the Rockets in 2004. They lead their series against the Blazers 3-2 with Game 6 at the Toyota Center in Houston tonight. So it looks like Tracy McGrady has a good chance of ending this terrible streak of seven consecutive first-round eliminations, right? But wait, there’s one problem...
