659 people are playing standard multiplayer and 68 people are playing Zombies mode on Wii U. More than last week.
I've been playing around with Madden 13 for Wii U, which is a Madden game for the Wii U. If you have played a Madden game, you probably know what you are getting (football).
Even if you've never played a sports game in your life, EA's intro catchphrase has become one of the most ubiquitous in all of gaming. So for Fine Art tody, we're going to take a break from castles and giant robots to look at the people who are now in charge of the slogan (or at least the part where it comes up).

The next Madden will have all the usual features: tackling, audibles, hot routes, in-depth playbooks, canoe pursuits, and slow-motion chain kills.
For sports fans, there's nothing more powerful than superstition.
The fans have spoken. Madden 13's cover athlete will be Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin "Megatron" Johnson.

Your four Madden 13 cover vote finalists are Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, and Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Who do you want cursed the most? [@AdamSchefter]
