Today is the day many of us have been waiting for, that welcome oasis of the offseason when we can finally get our grubby little hands on the latest version of EA's NCAA franchise. Here's what EA has to say about it:
When you go to a particular school or grow up around college football, you are more than just a fan. It’s who you are. We thought we could leverage this pride in your roots and show that "where you come from" is more than just a statement about geography. By positioning NCAA Football 11 as a game that understands this pride and is authentic to these traditions, the takeaway should be that anything that is in college football is in NCAA Football 11.
And this doesn’t just include game play (though that’s a huge part of it). It’s rivals and mascots; it’s legends and stories. It’s those things that are at the very fabric of the game itself. Of course the game is great this year as well. With authentic entrances, mascots and specific offenses for each team, the term "where I come from" takes on a much larger meaning. While playing NCAA Football 11 is ultimately a great sports sim, it should also give you a sense of the pride and emotion one has for being a fan of a team they will never not be a part of.
Of course, as fellow consumers and fans we're much more interested in what you have to say about it, so if you've picked it up already or are headed out later, drop your reviews in the comments and let the rest of us know the good and the bad, and the funnest part of all, where the bugs are.
I mean, if has telekinetic powers, surely Marcell Dareus can shoot lasers from his eyes...
