I’m finally going to give in. It’s been out there hanging over my head like an unpaid bill.
Madden ’09 is set to hit shelves August 12th.
I normally don’t get into video games at all. Maybe I’m too old. Maybe I like to watch real games more. I don’t know.
Still, because the bosses are riding me to post more and to keep the content here more up to date, I thought I’d cover this momentous occasion. (They didn’t really tell me that. I just needed something to blog about.)
