The guys at the Tecmo Blog are having all kinds of fun, simulating a day in the life of a Madden player and a glance back at Madden 99, along with more stuffs.

Also, if you're into watching other people play video games, GameSpot, starting at 7 p.m. ET this evening, will be playing the game all night, and you'll be able to follow along. (You'll be able to watch the video, though chatting requires some kind of subscription.)

And if that's not enough video game news for you ... Kobe Bryant's on the cover of a game now, for the first time since that uncomfortable Colorado incident. So yeah: Even more reasons never to leave the house.
