Just received the first issue (March) of PlayStation: The Official Magazine I wrote for. The big 2008 PS3 Game Planner is my text (major kudos to the editors that made it look all snazzy). Seeing your stuff in print is way rad, man.
Have some stuff in next month's issue too, but I'm glowing about this right now.
Congratulations man. You've always been the unoffcial leader of this thread/somb sub group so it's great to see you get some nice prestige. I'll have to at least check it out next time I'm at borders on something.

If you are willing to go back a bit and shy off of a 360 game, NFL 2K5 is probably the single best football game ever made and one of the best sports titles ever. It's simplistic, yet can be very in-depth and complicated if you choose to make it that way. You can get a used copy for Xbox piss cheap (my roommate a few months back bought three copies in case one gets dinged up...that way he has a backup...and it cost him a total of like $7). Anyway, yeah, it SHOOOOULD be able to play on a 360. You might want to check it out, though.
Anybody on here play sports games? I'm interested in picking up a quality but not super complicated football game for the 360 or wii. I am a stanger in this genre, so I'm open to all advice. Doesn't have to be the current year either, I'd be fine with pulling a more solid title out of the bargin bin because its a year old.

BTW -- not sure if you listen to the 1UP Sports Anomaly podcast, but I have a pair of interviews in the next episode (Wednesday, I think).
That guy you were interviewing was PLAYING IT SAFE! Nice interview!

At first blush, I thought the game was a bit lacking and slow paced. The more time I put in to it the more impressed I became with the subtle design.
Brilliant GUI. Very solid (and highly customizable) control. The ease with which one can zoom out to a galactic overview and then back down to the smallest details on a ship is amazing. Very fluid and smooth.
I like all the different tactical and strategic approaches one can take as well. All out annihilation of the enemy, diplomatic maneuvering, economic power, subterfuge and cultural victory are equally valid methods of winning.
