We have just posted some more NCAA March Madness 08 screenshots.
"Feel the fervor for your college team -- and the bragging rights that come from victory with NCAAģ March Madnessģ 08. Think strategically and execute flawlessly through Dynamic Post Control, a new feature where you take complete control over running your offense through the post, and defending your opponent in the paint. For the first time, you have complete control over dozens of new offensive and defensive post moves, from up-and-unders, to hook spins, pump fakes, and every combo in between.
Experience the intensity and atmosphere that occurs in authentic college basketball arenas on game night as the students chant their school fight song. Utilize a hot streak to build momentum when your players feed off the energy or buckle under the pressure with the Team Intensity Control. ESPN college basketball broadcasters Dick Vitale and Brad Nessler provide their trademark commentary, and now ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews makes her videogame debut, providing insight throughout the course of each game, as well as real-time injury updates."
We have just posted our FIFA Soccer 08 review. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
"Itís not often that a developer that holds the upper hand in licensing plays the underdog role in a battle for console supremacy. Itís even rarer that EA Sports finds themselves on the short end of any competition. In the world of soccer (or football for the more sophisticated of you) gaming, however, while the FIFA series from EA moves more than their share of merchandise, itís widely considered the inferior product on the market.
Last season, with the release of FIFA 07, I felt like the competition really started to get interesting. The gameplay in the FIFA series was starting to become a far greater strength than simply the rights the real players and correct kits. Now while the world waits till sometime next year for an effort from the competition, EA has fired another shot on net with the release of FIFA 08. With the significantly improved gameplay, FIFA 08 will now try to go for a deeper and fuller experience. But will it be a return to style over substance?"
08:55 AM - November 6, 2007. Posted by Steve_OS.IGN has posted the following:
- NCAA March Madness 08 Hands On Preview (360)
"Aside from the new low-post abilities (though even those have been seen in other games prior) there really isn't a whole lot that's new and unique to March Madness 08. The fluidity of the game was still lacking a bit, but we're hoping that will be remedied by the time the game ships. The speed of the game should also be ratcheted up a notch before December 18 hits, as it stands things just don't move as quickly as a real collegiate game. Again, our build wasn't complete so we'll have to wait the remaining month to see if the issues that we have with March Madness get ironed out. If they do, EA Sports could have another championship, baby! Hard to believe I almost made it through an entire college basketball preview without a Dicky V reference, isn't it?"

- WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2008 - SmackDown Countdown 2007: Rick Rude (PS3)
"What is there to say about Rick Rude that the Ravishing One hasn't already said about himself? Born in Minnesota and schooled with the likes of Mr. Perfect and Nikita Koloff, Rude went onto wrestling stardom as he performed in NWA, Georgia Championship Wrestling, WCW and the WWE -- where he made a name at the conceited heel who loved himself as much as he loved winning."

The official FIBA Basketball Manager 2008 website has posted a patch for their game.
"Make your mark in the world of basketball and prove to everyone that you have got what it takes to lift your team to the top of the table. Bring in the best players and sponsors to attract the best audiences and plan your attack by checking out the opposition with a detailed breakdown of team and player statistics; plan player strategy and court formation with the aid of sophisticated layout and court graphics."

My wife's car is in the shop, so I'm having to drop her off and pick her up from work, etc. It really is a pain not having that 3rd car anymore. My Passport is running on it's last legs too, as it is starting to slip out of gear when I press the accelerator quickly. Anyone know what that could be?
I have a meeting w/ Nat's teacher today to find out how she's doing in class. I'm looking forward to that.

PSX Extreme has the scoop.
"This is the first evidence we've seen of Prologue coming stateside, as to this point, it has only been confirmed for Japan and Europe. Perhaps the biggest demo in the history of demos will hit Japan in both Blu-Ray disc and PSN downloadable form on December 13."
Gamersyde has posted some screenshots of We Love Golf.
"The seaside resort course from We Love Golf for the Nintendo Wii is drawn before our eyes in all its colors with these new images from developer Camelot."
ToTheGame has posted some screenshots of FlatOut: Head On.
"FlatOut: Head On is ready to drop the hammer on the PSP extreme racing genre, bringing high speed destruction and leaving more broken bones and wrecked cars in its wake, than a Richard Hammond Top Gear stunt."
1up has posted the following:
- Super Swing Golf Season 2 Preview (Wii)
"Golf Darts requires precision as you compete against your friends or NPCs to hit the ball into specific colored sections of a bullseye. Longest Drive gives you three turns to hit the ball as far as you can; the twist is that there are warp portals placed around the course that you can chain together for long distances, so you need to strategically think of where to aim."
- GT5 Prologue Revs Up at Tokyo Motor Show (PS3)
"This year, Polyphony Digital set up their own booth at the East Hall, where visitors were crowding to check out the stage event introducing the PS3 racing title. Although they had set up 14 playable kiosks with driver seat and wheel controller, the waiting line to play the game was more than an hour."
