CVG has the scoop.

" AI wise, again it's brilliant. The CPU cars make mistakes, react to changing situations and battle with each other. You'll see towards the end of the Eiger Nordwand course that one of the CPU cars goes into a tight right-hander with too much speed, which allows another car to catch up, and barge each other in a fight for the load."

Ronaldinho, Crouch, and Gattuso Named Cover Stars for FIFA Street 3

Trio Will Appear As Stylized Action Heroes Performing Over-the-Top Trick Moves

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., – December 19, 2007 Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that international soccer superstars Ronaldinho, Peter Crouch, and Gennaro Gattuso will be featured world wide on the front packs ofFIFA Street 3, the newest iteration of the EA SPORTS BIGTM street soccer arcade series.

FIFA Street 3 brings these players, and others like them, to life as stylized action heroes in a hyper-real world that merges the game’s biggest stars with environments that pulsate to the music in exotic locations around the world. Ronaldinho, Crouch and Gattuso represent three of the different types of specialist players created in game, where gamers can choose to play with Tricksters, Playmakers, Finishers and Enforcers for different options on the ball and a different gameplay experience. Gamers get the chance to combine these different types of specialist players and associated skills to create the ultimate street soccer team.

FIFA Street 3 is about turning soccer icons into eye-popping characters through the game’s stylized art direction for an over-the-top arcade soccer experience,” said producer Joe Nickolls. “Ronaldinho, Crouch and Gattuso represent three of the different types of players available in our game and we were able to exaggerate their qualities to really create larger-than-life characters.”  

Ronaldinho, the cover athlete on the original FIFA Street, is a global megastar and the Brazilian International and FC Barcelona midfielder’s list of accomplishments includes a FIFA World Cup winner’s medal, the 2004 and 2005 FIFA World Player of the Year, as well as the 2005 European Footballer of the Year award.

Joining Ronaldinho will be Italian World Cup-winning footballer Gennaro Gattuso. The creative midfielder, who plays for A.C. Milan, with whom he won the UEFA Champions League title in the 2002-03 and 2006-07 seasons, continues the tradition of world-class athletes donning the FIFA franchise covers. It is Gattuso’s first appearance on an EA SPORTS™ or EA SPORTS BIG cover.

Completing the trio of world class players will be Liverpool and England striker Peter Crouch. Liverpool’s top goal scorer in the 2006-07 season, Crouch has also been a consistent goal scorer for the England national team. He will have his 6’7’’ height amplified to compliment his ball-striking and finishing skills to create a new soccer experience. 

Take your soccer heroes to the streets and experience the revolution in street soccer. FIFA Street 3 will be available for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Nintendo DS™. FIFA Street 3 is scheduled to ship to stores under the EA SPORTS BIG brand on February 15th, 2008 in Europe and February 18th in North America. It is rated “E” for Everyone and 3+ by PEGI.

Eurogamer has posted their impressions of Ferrari Challenge.
"Other stuff. There's 16-player online racing, 16 tracks, a weird online top trumps game you play with cards gathered from unlocking cars and even Sixaxis features. It wasn't working when we saw it, but Mr PR Man reckons you can wobble the controller in the in-car view and the driver takes his hand off the wheel and waves. It supports rumble with DualShock 3 and all the major PS3-compatible wheels. Downloadable tracks are planned, with potentials including Monaco and the Nürburgring. It says "A Mark Cale Production" when you start it up. Like, cool."

CVG has posted an interview with Suzy Wallace, as they talk about Kart Attack.

CVG: "In terms of handling and control, are you going for more of an arcade or simulation angle?"
Suzy Wallace: "As Kart Attack's aimed at the casual gamer, it's crucial that the driving model for the karts is both fun and easy to pick up.

We want it to be so that anyone can pick up a controller and be able to put up a decent challenge, but so that the art of sliding round an entire corner may take a bit of practice to perfect."

Quite a few snubs from the Pro Bowl team announcement yesterday huh? Colston, Fred Taylor, Mario Williams come to mind first. Good to see they'll be honoring Sean Taylor.

Parcells might take over the Falcons organization, that could be interesting.

Amazon shipped me my 4 BluRay DVD's yesterday, I got them w/ the BOGO free thing...

What's up with you?
