One Madden 08 player chronicles the impossibility of online play


Reader Brian has been fed up with his copy of Madden 08. See, he has been going through the trouble of trying to actually connect to one game online and play, but as you can see in his embedded video, he'd probably have more fun slamming his head against a wall for a couple of hours. He's been having the same issues that some of you have reported on. Even after receiving several different updates, it has still not helped him get his game online.

Please note: Brian, the great guy he is, uses some profanities in his video. So, it's kind of NSFW.

Personally, we wonder if the issue can even be fixed, at this point.
