Anyone else cover Madden '08?

    I went to the local GameStop for a feature (we're a weekly). Took pics, did interviews, have an idea for how to write the story, which I'll execute tomorrow.

    Is anyone else covering this for a feature?

    Madden '07 came out last year. If you're covering this for a feature, you might want to dig deep for new ideas.

    How is this sports? It's a damned video game.

    Nice for the features section...or tech section if you have one ... not for sports

    Sorry, I meant '08.

    The video game is football, which is a sport, and when 100 people show up at midnight, I think it makes a decent feature.
    We don't have a tech section - again, weekly paper - but being how this is a sports-related game, it would fit for sports.
    Last time I checked, games get play in sports sections, right?

    Not video games. But it's your section. Do what you like.

    My feeling was this is more fun than writing a rec league feature ... although I already did one of those tonight

    You know your market better than we do, so if that works for you ... it's all good.
     
  10. Seems more like a "Lifestyles" feature, but if your paper is that small and you think it works best in Sports, then go nuts.

    I didn't cover it, but as soon as payday roles around, I'll be wasting large chunks of my off time playing it.

    I'd have used it in my weekly section, but for the first time in three months I have actual prep sports to preview and write about so I didn't even consider it.

    Two or three weeks ago and I would have made it a lead package though. Ah summer, I still can't decide whether I love thee or hate thee ...
