As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I've suddeny got an indescribable urge to play a football game again. The problem is that I haven't played one since the old gameday series for the PSX and Madden intimidates the hell out of me. I'm thinking about picking up a used copy of Madden 09, but I'm terrified that I'll be way out of my depth. Are other editions of the game kinder to newbies? Any sort of walkthrough out there that could teach the raw basics to me?
This whole damn thing started because of watching Friday Night Lights. I know the basics of football, but would have utterly no idea what sort of defensive plays to run etc etc.
