We have just posted our NFL Head Coach review. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
"There was a period of time from about the age of 10 to 16 where I was sure that I was going to be an NFL football player when I grew up. I could throw. I could catch. I could hit. And I could take a hit. Somewhere around my sophomore year of high school, I realized that the NFL dream was simply that – a dream. I played a few more years before a shot in the back during an attempt to walk-on at my university caused me to hang up the cleats for good."

  • NFL Street 3 Announced (PSP, PS2)
    "NFL Street 3 plans to add aerial moves to the mix allowing players to jump in midair to perform a variety of tasks. This capability will give you the opportunity to not only gain style points, but also acquire items and modifiers that will help you in-game. The new title looks to feature the gamebreaker control and will include new power moves on both sides of the ball."


Test Drive Unlimited Screenshots (360)

Boomtown has posted some screenshots of Test Drive Unlimited.
"This is a heavily restyled model of the classic Dodge Viper. The Viper SRT-10 features sharp, angled bodywork and an engine that has been enlarged to 8.3 liters which increases output to 504 hp with 525 ft-lbf of torque. This model is a convertible, so drop the top and feel the wind in your hair while blazing through Oahu in this gorgeous car."

Eurogamer has the scoop.
"The game wasn't included in the line-up of titles that make up Microsoft's current "Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays" promotion, which sees a game released every Wednesday until August 9th. That led most of us to believe we wouldn't see it for a while afterward."

This model is a convertible, so drop the top and feel the wind in your hair while blazing through Oahu in this gorgeous car. Or, take the coupe version which has the exact same power and speed. In Test Drive Unlimited, you can do both."

Madden On Its Last Legs?

Kotaku has posted an article entitled, Madden On Its Last Legs?
"Never-ending sports franchise Madden hits stores on August 22 to sate America's insatiable thirst for all things football. This time around EA, king of multi-SKUs, is releasing a Hall of Fame edition for both the Playstation 2 and the Xbox 360."


Mario Hoops Summons Cactuar, Mages, Moogles (DS)

Kotaku has the scoop.
"Mario Hoops 3-on-3—also known as Mario Basketball 3on3 in the east—is becoming increasingly more bizarre. Sure, Mario playing any sport or performing virtually any activity at this point is de rigeur, but the unusual stylus based control scheme, coupled with Final Fantasy mainstays like mages, moogles, and more, make for a strange mushroomy brew."


Need for Speed Carbon Trailer & Images (PS3, 360)

Playsyde and Xboxyde have both posted trailers and images from Need for Speed Carbon.
"EA are racing around the world, showing their new games to the public this summer. They released these images and a pretty long gameplay trailer from Need for Speed: Carbon, and at least the sound is great."


Question of the Day

So, do you have a copy of NCAA Football 07 yet? If so, where did you get it?

Need for Speed Carbon Preview (360)

Yahoo! Video Games have posted their preview of Need for Speed Carbon.
"In terms of gameplay, Need for Speed Carbon stays true to the open world framework of its predecessors but manages to trick it out considerably. The core experience has you traveling through the massive city that is the main stage for the game's action and challenging other crews for control of their territory. As you defeat them you'll take their 'hood and your rep will grow. Obviously taking on racing crews will present a sizeable challenge that is more than one man can handle."


Planet GameCube Previews (DS)

Planet GameCube has posted the following previews:
  • Diddy Kong Racing DS
    "Diddy Kong Racing DS is Rare's first project for Nintendo's latest handheld, and hopefully not the last. Microsoft, full owner of Rare LTD, has allowed the developer to make titles for the DS (as they did with the GBA), having yet to create their own portable gaming hardware that could compete with Nintendo's. Instead of developing a new game out of an old franchise, or creating a new IP, Rare has opted to update and reinvent their N64 classic Diddy Kong Racing with features optimized for the DS."
  • Mario Hoops 3-on-3
    "Mario Hoops has some interesting control mechanics. While character movement is handled with the D-pad, almost everything else is accomplished with various movements on the touch screen. Dribbling speed can be increased by tapping the screen: the faster the tapping, the faster the dribbling. Faster dribbling is required for certain special moves and activation of certain power-ups. Sliding the stylus towards another player will pass the ball, and an upward stroke towards the net will shoot it."


Question of the Day

So, who's going to win the World Cup?

NCAA Football 07 Hands On Impressions and Movie Clips (360)

Game Informer Online has posted their hands on impressions of NCAA Football 07, which includes some movie clips.
"While NCAA does look better than last year’s Madden for the Xbox 360, we noticed a number of shortcomings with NCAA Football 07. When panning the stadium, or during close ups of the players there’s noticeable frame loss. Only when looking from the standard back view does everything run well. Animations are decent, but are often repeated for both teams. All the stadiums we played in were represented phenomenally well, and while EA is touting this new Smart Fan system, they seemed to be cheering all the time. Obviously they would be louder when big plays were made, but not once did the crowd go silent.."
