    Awesome. I hope Marino has a large role in it ... because I must have blinked and missed it in that trailer.

    More info on the game: http://www.gamesradar.com/9-things-...-longshot-story-mode-direct-from-its-creator/

    This is a story mode of Madden. You don't actually play football itself. You play a story where your choices have impacts.

    I just want to be able to play online (on my 75mbs 15ms ping connection) without lag or dropped games. Their net code is a joke, as is the physics. This is what happens without competition.

    I mean, if they could integrate a story and things to do into a superstar mode, then we would have something to work with. But a story where you have to be qb and follow the path(s)? meh

    Agreed. But I don't have that fast of internet lol.

    They're bringing back team play online this year (3v3). Probably to be hailed as some new ground breaking addition, when really all they did was abruptly remove it from the game a couple years ago- piss people off- and now its back but only as a part of the cash grab "ultimate team"

    The shadow Marino... Had to qualify, that was not some random chick, she was an exceptional random chick. It's not like he's a Clinton (Bill or George).

    I dunno about bashing the story mode. I mean, some of those games have better storylines and musical accompaniment than Hollywood.

    It's pretty cool Marino is on board with being "that" guy.

    I think he knows his fire is what fueled him to be the BEST OF ALL TIME!!

    Since when was Marino ever a rebel?
    I mean he allegeldy did cocaine and he does have a bastard child. And by all accounts he is a complete *******, but "rebel"?

    Dan Marino is an epic **** talker who rebelled against the idea of working too hard or watching too much film, especially when he was new to the league. Marino is a blue collar Pittsburgh guy, a shot-and-a-beer guy (though he mostly seems to drink wine these days), a braggart who when you leave the bar with him will drive too close to you in the parking lot, honk his horn and yell "**** you" before he burns out onto the street.

    There's a great story about him that Steve Sabol recounted during an interview with Dan. A reporter was new on the Dolphins beat. Marino went up, introduced himself saying, "Hi, I'm Dan Marino. It's a pleasure to meet you. But you ain't getting **** from me."

    THIS is Dan Marino. Whether it's Marino in the game, who knows? I tend to doubt it. Which is too bad.
