I tried to disguise my blitz but Jake Locker picked it up immediately. He's a first-round draft pick and a four-year starter at quarterback for Washington. You reach that level, you're probably well coached.
I have no idea what this signifies, but the fact they're asking is curious. EA Sports wants to know where the band sits in all 120 stadiums in major college football. Band geeks are marching to the rescue.
As Kotaku's chief sports writer, my most memorable gaming moments of 2010 come entirely within that genre. No spoilers here, but then, the human drama of athletic competition follows no script.
We don't all play sports games, but can't we all enjoy the great glitches sports games bring us every year? In EA's NCAA Football 11, YouTube user TheBigCberry probably didn't want his team's mascot to be this helpful.
We seem to have gotten things out of order. The first gameplay tuning file for NCAA Football 11 went live this morning, so it was not dependent on a mid-August patch. The adjustments will be incorporated into existing dynasties.
Another large patch coming by mid-August for NCAA Football 11 will address some notorious balance issues with recruiting in the game's Dynasty modes, and deliver "live tuning" for necessary gameplay adjustments without waiting for a dedicated patch.
An Alabama GameStop allegedly made a cover of a crying Tim Tebow - who (in)famously wept as Alabama beat Florida for last year's SEC championship - and inserted it into the cases of NCAA Football 11 games on display.
PS3 gamers with NCAA Football 11 only had to wait one day after release for the first custom, fully-named roster to become available. Xbox 360 rosters are still being written, and we're told they'll be available shortly.
Not many people game completely offline, but you'll want to be connected if you're bringing home NCAA Football 11 tomorrow. It gets a a day-of-release patch that fixes and tunes a ton of features.
Recruiting screen in NCAA Football 11. I'm entitled to post this because I've never once made an error in anything I've published. Also because, Jesus Christ, Tennessee, you got negatively recruited by State over academics.
College football is pageantry, tradition, the gleam of a sousaphone, the wink and tight sweater of a Song Girl. It's also the promises and browbeatings of a recruiting call, and desperate gambles made beneath a sky the color of lead.
The return of college football means the return of tradition, pageantry, and the voice of an old friend on Saturday afternoons - such as Brad Nessler welcoming you to another classic showdown between the Death Bats and the Cash Money.
In last week's impressions of the NCAA Football 11 demo, we reported that EA Sports and the game's longtime analyst, Lee Corso, had mutually parted ways for this year's game. That's not the case.
It is hardly a surprise that the cover of NCAA Football 11, out July 13, does not feature Tim Tebow with the Scriptures written on his eyeblack tape. That's not to say EA Sports has never allowed similar things before.
With six additional teams and a slew of custom visuals, NCAA Football 11 released an uncommonly ambitious demo last week. Football is still a results-driven enterprise, and its video games are rightly held to the same expectation of on-field execution.
The AP's annual accounting of which college football teams start the season born on third base isn't due for another couple months, maybe, but EA Sports has already ranked them for NCAA Football 11 which releases in three weeks.
Those sweet Nike Pro Combat threads in the eight-team NCAA Football 11 demo aren't just for looks there. They're also in the full version, for looks. Downloading the demo gives you access to the alternate uniforms in the main game.
Alabama fans are not amused. NCAA Football 11 promised four times the number of teams it normally puts in its demo, and the reigning national champion is not one of them. But Big XII defectors Texas and Oklahoma are.
Tigers vs. Tigers. EA Sports told us the third matchup for the multi-team demo of NCAA 11 wasn't going to be traditional and they're right. Clemson and Missouri have played just four times.
