"Because the game is unlicensed, it can't feature markings of real teams, NFL stadiums or images of NFL players. The star of this title is New York Nightmare linebacker Quentin Sands, a fictional player voiced by former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor."

I had a very relaxing day for Christmas yesterday. After waking up and opening the presents, we had some lunch. Then I stayed home, while the family went to visit some friends. I played and beat Condemned, lol. I can't believe I went through the entire game in one sitting. I really wasn't feeling the game that much from the start, but it did get better. I still feel that King Kong was a better game, but beating Condemned gave me another feeling of accomplishment, lol. You see, there aren't very many games anymore that keep me interested for very long. So far that is 2 Xbox 360 games, I have beaten. I think CoD2 and Gun will be the next 2.

Nat got a Furby for Christmas, has anyone ever played with one of these things? We've taught it to do a few things, but that's about it. I guess we need to give it some more time. Nat loves it though. She got all sorts of Barbie stuff, but she loves her Furby.

I know it's late, but HOW BOUT DEM' COWBOYS! With a little luck next week, they can still make the playoffs! The Pistons continue to roll as they blew out the Spurs. The Spurs just aren't the same team without Ginoboli *sp.

3D Avenue has posted their review of Mario Kart DS, giving it a 5 out of 5.
"Mario Kart DS is a must have game for the Nintendo DS and is possibly even good enough to make you go and buy a DS unit for it. Nintendo have really managed to put together an extremely fun game and with the online options, the Nintendo DS really does house the best Mario Kart game ever."

Xboxyde has posted some screenshots of Love Football.
"Namco released a big batch of images of their soccer simulator Love Football. The images show some more of their revolutionary feature: 3rd person soccer. And that feature can, if they succeed, really sell some games - both in Japan and Europe, as they are trying to put alot of teams based all over the world in it."

It's Christmas Eve already! I did finish my Xmas shopping yesterday and last night. I didn't even get home until almost midnight, it was a crazy day. I'm just glad it's over. I'm sure while wrapping presents today, I'll realize I forgot someone and have to go get a few more things, it always happens.

I can't wait for the Cowboys game, I'm so happy it's a 1:00 game. I'm going down south to see the family later this evening and open a few presents. It's always fun to watch all the kids faces while they rip them open.

The Pistons continue to roll this season with another win against the Warriors. The big test is on Xmas day against the Spurs, another game I can't wait to watch!

Operation Sports and Xbox.com continue to work together to provide you with more sports gaming content. Our very own Shawn Drotar has posted the following articles:
  • Holiday Picks and Hidden Gems
    "Sure, Xbox 360™ is the hottest thing around, but that doesn't mean your original Xbox® has stopped working—in fact, 2005 brought some of the best titles that the Xbox has ever seen, and I'd bet you have a gamer on your wish list … so it's a good thing you stopped by."
  • 360 Degrees of Holiday Happiness
    "Unless you've been living under a rock this fall, you already know that Xbox 360™ is the must-have holiday gift this year. Amazing graphics and sound, wireless controllers, and next-generation game play all wrapped up a sleek package you'll be proud to show off ... well, I could go on, but the rest of this site has Xbox 360 covered."

Game Revolution has posted College Hoops 2K6 reviews for the following consoles:
  • Playstation 2 (B-)
    "The prime selling-point for College Hoops 2K6 is its focus on coaching. In the new College mode, you get to coach your team from the sideline, making substitutions and calling out plays and presses. It's meant to mimic real coaching, but there is no "argue the call" button, or "throw your chair" button, or even a "throttle your shooting guard" button. Bobby Knight will hate this game."
  • Xbox (B-)
    "Though the Xbox is bit brighter and features shorter loading times, the two versions look and play identically. Both versions also have decent online play, although an elaborate "feedback" menu after every game is cumbersome and often abused."

Have you finished your Xmas shopping yet? I sure HAVEN'T! Nat and the crew will be going up north today, so I have all afternoon and evening to get all of my shopping done. I'm not really looking forward to the mob of people in the malls, but I'll manage, it's what I do every year, LOL... I'm used to it.

There is basically NOBODY here at work today, so I'm going to be able to get a few things done that are impossible when everyone is here. The techie guys know what I'm talkin' about.

Golden St. comes to Motown tonight, it should be a pretty good game. I'm sure the Pistons will come out with some attitude, as their next game is on Christmas Day against the Spurs. I can't wait for that one, hopefully the Pistons don't look passed the Warriors tonight and stay focused.

We have just posted our Madden NFL 06 review. Find out what Shawn Drotar has to say about it.
"The 800-pound gorilla of sports gaming has settled in on the new Xbox 360. Madden NFL 06 has been built from the ground up for the next generation of consoles, and it provides a remarkable visual and auditory experience.
EA Sports, like a talented architect who would talk you through the site of a fabulous home being built while you're walking through the basement and frame, knows that they'll eventually build something special, and so there's plenty of reason to be excited for the future. But for now - it's still just a basement."

We have just posted our College Hoops 2K6 review. Find out what John Griffin has to say about it.
"The old basketball saying goes, “I don’t care how it looks, as long as we win”.
OK, so maybe it’s not an old adage, but it is the perfect phrase for College Hoops 2k6. College Hoops has borrowed the same new innovations that its pro counterpart (NBA 2K6) has and incorporated them almost flawlessly in this college version. Despite the mediocre graphics and horrible cut scene transitions, this game delivers the goods when it comes to both gameplay and replicating the college game."
