As a working Mom, I don’t get many chances to spend the afternoon with my Teen, none the less even pick him up from school. A few days ago, I was able to leave work early enough to make it to my Teen’s school in time for the end of his soccer practice. I wanted to surprised him and his best friend with a fun Teen afternoon. They had no idea and where totally surprised when they saw me pull up.
They had no idea what I had in store for them, a FUN afterschool play dated just for teen’s. We drove off to Walmart and the Teen’s just thought I needed to pick up a few things when I announced that they can rent a game a Redbox and pick up some snacks to go along with their game. Excitement was HUGE and both my teen’s jumped at the opportunity to pick up a Redbox game.
Once we got into Walmart and checked the Redbox, they got very quiet and a little disappointed, the Teen’s had been dying to play the Madden 13 game for their XBox and unfortunately this game was out of stock :0(. Well, I talked them into picking up some snacks and we would check another Redbox to find the game.
It’s easy to locate a game through any Redbox location, your Smart phone or on a PC, did you know that? All you do is pop in your Zip code and it will tell you which location has your preferred game or movie available. SUPER cool; and best part.. we have a million Redboxes in our town, surely one would have the game in stock.
We walked through Walmart, looking for some fun Game day snacks and the boys immediately walked into the Chips aisle and each picked out their favorite, Funyuns and Doritos… typical Boys; we also grabbed some Soda, which was a special treat. I’m always too cheap to spend the big bucks on can soda…. but I wanted the boys to have fun… a big box of Mountain Dew went into my cart along with a bunch of other things
After check out, we discovered one more Redbox inside our local Walmart, and …. unfortunately they didn’t have the game in stock either. We did check and found out that the CVS across the street actually had the game, so no big deal, we had to pass it to get home anyways, off to CVS we went.
I just love that Redbox has so many convenient locations across town; I can pick up and drop off anywhere, anytime I want. Just LOVE it… and since they now offer Games for $2/ rental, makes it even a better deal for the kids to give them something special every so often. We did it… we located the Madden 13 XBox game and the Teen’s where ecstatic, couldn’t wait to get home and start playing the game.
The minute I turned the key to the front door, the teen’s disappeared into the room and all I could hear was “WOW…. this is cool” …. “WOW, dude is this the game or is this ESPN?” …… “Dude, have you seen the graphics….??”, every so often we could hear a soda pop and some chips crunch and a “Ohh YEAHHH.. Touchdown”…. but the Teen’s where completely into the game and wouldn’t come out for hours. I think this mom deserves a HUG… I sure know how to keep my kids happy *hint, hint boys*.
Have you played the game yet? What are your thoughts? Did you like it, love it ?? Being a Mom of 2 teen boys and a hubby that is a total Football freak, I have no clue about football at all, I asked the “Guys” what they thought of the game and the answer was “AWESOME – Can we buy it for Christmas"?”
The graphics are outstanding, the sound was amazing and the Fun.. well endless of hours to say the least. I can not tell you enough on how much the kids enjoyed the game. Madden 13 is rated E for Everyone, making it a fun game for the entire family. Enjoy the drama of every aspect of NFL play with friends through multiplayer support, both online and offline. The Xbox 360 version of Madden NFL 13 supports 1-4 players locally, and 2-6 players online on Xbox LIVE.

Shhh.. our little secret.
