Now this is more like it! Although Madden normally signals the start of the Fall schedule triple-A madness, it certainly doesn’t feel like it given what we’ve had the last two weeks. This week, that changes.
Missed me? I would have written something last week if I hadn’t passed out from PAX exhaustion or if there was anything even remotely interesting to tell you about unless you think Everyone Sings for PS3 and Xbox 360 is interesting.
