Further evidence that I need to get my act together and buy a Wii.

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.

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.

Goddamn it, I'm gonna need some time to get acquainted with the game before I challenge you. Warming up with Melee isn't going to do any good.

Andyroo! Great job, dude! I definitely want to see this! Any scans of it at all?

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.

Lance, stick with segas brand of football over EAs madden. the NFL series, when does EA's licensing monopoly end anyway although i say this half of undying loyalty to sega, my limited sports game expertise has always seen NFL >>> madden

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!

Been playing Sins Of A Solar Empire this past week.

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.

As far as football games, the most fun I've had is playing NCAA 07 on the PS2. The 08 version, especially for PS360, has some issues with interceptions and stuff, so I just stuck with 07 (on the PS2 it was basically the same game). I've found the NCAA game to be much better at sucking you in to the game than the sterile NFL game. Recruiting is fun and not too time consuming. The only thing that's difficult about it for me is that the game takes about an hour to play and there's no in-game save feature (I'm relatively new to console gaming, and the fact that most games don't have this blows me away), and with work/family, it's tough finding a solid hour or two of my time to actually play. But I suspect most of you guys don't have that issue.

Gah, been super busy this week. Thanks for the various props on the PTOM article and the podcast, guys. Spent the last couple days burning through Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol Encore for work. Have a couple of feature articles to work on this weekend, but nothing I really have to play (besides a bit more Twisted Metal: Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition), so I might pick up Devil May Cry 4 for Xbox 360. Anyone been playing it?

EA and the NFL extended their exclusive rights agreement for another 3 years, meaning the earliest we'd be likely to see a real competitor to the Madden franchise is 2013. Viva la Competition!
