Talking about the Madden Live Challenge tournament.
It seriously was a bit of a letdown...
The sports are everywhere, so let's discuss the games...

Gamersyde has posted quite a few more Project Gotham Racing 4 clips:
According to Major Nelson, the SEGA Rally demo is available on the Marketplace.
"Experience the unique mix of fun, bumper-to-bumper racing and next gen technology in this single player demo."
10:22 AM - September 17, 2007. Posted by Steve_OS.Nintendo World Report has posted their impressions of Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis.
"Rockstar clearly tried to make the default controls simple and easy to learn. Not only are they handled exclusively with Wii Remote, your character also moves around automatically, akin to Wii Sports. Adding to the simplicity is the fact that you don’t even need to time your shots. As long as you swing the remote while the ball is coming at you, your character automatically performs the shot afterwards, if the ball comes in range. The problem is that sometimes seconds go by from the moment you swing the remote to the moment the ball is hit. You feel strangely detached from the game when seeing that your physical movements, which are supposed to be a simulation of actually hitting the ball, don’t immediately translate into corresponding movements from your character on-screen. Sometimes, the game doesn’t even register that you performed the swing at all."
IGN has the scoop.
"All this would make for a nifty sequel, but Sony is going one step further to make this a must-have for any golf fan. Hot Shots Golf Portable 2 is set to feature internet-based multiplayer. Up to 16 players from throughout Japan can compete in tournaments. The game will have chat features of some form, although we're not sure at the moment just how robust they will be."
TeamXbox has posted some FIFA Soccer 08 screenshots.
"The spotlight will shine on FC Barcelona’s world-class midfielder Ronaldinho who will be the center-piece of FIFA 08 global packaging and marketing campaigns. Selected FIFA World Player 2004 and 2005, and a finalist last season, Ronaldinho will take his place on FIFA 08 covers alongside star players from other select teams in countries around the world."
10:21 AM - September 17, 2007. Posted by Steve_OS.AdvancedMN has posted their hands on impressions of Tony Hawk's Proving Ground.
"One of the major features Proving Ground has to offer over the previous installments in the series is the ability to choose your character’s style. There are three styles to choose from: Pro – skaters, who do everything for their next pay check; Hardcore skaters, who do it for the rush and excitement; and an Innovator, who constructs his/her own performance. These three classes bond well with one another as it gives you a lot of options to customize your own character besides the traditional create-a-character outline. Working through the demo, it looks as if Nail the Trick is better suited for the professional skaters, whereas the speed boost is best for getting some lengthy air for hardcore skaters."
Kotaku has the scoop.
"Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced a partnership with Camelot Software Planning to develop We Love Golf!™ for the Wii™ home video game system. Best known for developing Hot Shots Golf and the Mario Golf series, Camelot has a proven track record of creating entertaining, successful sports video games. This latest title transforms the Wii Remote™ into a virtual set of golf clubs, creating the most immersive golfing experience available off the greens. Capcom plans to release We Love Golf! in North America in 2008."

How bout dem Cowboys! 2-0 to start the season with the Bears up next. It was a close game until the second half, when Treen Green forgot he needed to throw to players with the Dolphin uniforms on. Can't believe our #1 pick is getting a little worse, w/ the Browns beating the Bengals. Jeez, I sure hope that was a 1 game wonder... Sorry Boom and EG!
Not a lot of things over the weekend for me, had a cookout and played skate for the most part. Playing skate online is rediculously fun, especially the X-Games ramp!
What's up with you?

Shawn Drotar over at 5W-G has posted an article entitled, The Popular Foil.
"It’s a difficult thing to pass judgment on; sports like NASCAR and mixed-martial arts are predicated on subtly feeding the human psyche’s darker desires for catastrophe, and they’re not alone - but blaming the seller or the buyer oversimplifies the argument."
Console Monster has the scoop.
"Konami today announed that they will be launching PES 2008 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on the 26th September, that's two days before Fifa 08 which is due for release on the 28th September."
Gamersyde has posted the following:
Worthplaying has posted some screenshots of SEGA Rally Revo.
"SEGA Rally Revo will set a new benchmark in its genre with a high-tempo driving experience that will challenge the racing skills both on and off-road, with revolutionary dynamically deformable terrain, proprietary next-generation graphics, bone-jarringly realistic physics, and competitive bumper-to-bumper racing."

"Groundbreaking new features include addictive drift/ powersliding races and “Driver DNA” that tracks gamers’ personal driving traits. These profiles, along with the profiles of select celebrities will be available for download across all online gaming systems."
IGN has posted the following:
- WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2008 Videos (PS3)
- WWE SmackDown Countdown 2007: Batista (PS3)
"For the better part of 10 years, Batista spent his days training and competing as a bodybuilder, and his nights "bouncing in clubs, floating from here to there." (He's still amazed that one club he worked at is less than two blocks from Washington D.C.'s MCI Center, where he defended his World Heavyweight Championship against JBL at SummerSlam in 2005.)"
- Indianapolis 500 Legends Videos (DS)
- NBA 2K8 Video (PS3)
- PGR 4: Career Mode (360)
"Beginning in September and running through January, the racing season offers a slew of events across the world. Unlike the past, where you were able to pick the events you wanted to race first, you are now at the mercy of the schedule."
- Friday Night: Hell in a Cell - Batista versus the Undertaker (PS3)
"That's why we're introducing Friday Fights and the SmackDown Q&A. Every Friday we'll have either a full match -- entrances, loading screens, etc. -- or a SVR question and answer session with THQ."
