With the NFL regular season just barely underway, there's plenty of time for the Madden Curse
to sink its hooks into Mr. Favre's vulnerable ankle, but for now, EA is busy squashing a host of bugs that have crawled out of the bowels of latest edition of Madden
. The major pest is a freezing issue that can crop up during play calling and highlight screens, reports IGN
. Senior designer Ian Cummings has documented most, if not all known bugs on the game's Producer Blog
, recommending various workarounds while the team puts together a patch. EA is targeting "less than a 3 week turnaround" from last Tuesday for the update to be released. So put a big checkmark next to the 16th and cross your fingers.
