Well why would they? Most people would pick Matt Ryan(the best player ever to play the game) over 2 guys who underachieved last year...:D. I have never really been a fan of the NCAA games and i like them even less for the PS3. I'd much rather play PS2 for football games

Actually i do have a PS3, and the only reason i would buy it is because Matt Ryan is on the cover. I have last years game and i just don't like the football games for PS3. I like other sports games like Fifa and NHL but i'm definitely sticking with the PS2 for my football games

I've never been a fan of NG Madden (and NCAA) but I got a 360 and its much better.

Now PS3 is on 60 fps like 360 so it should be better.

I do agree though, I'm getting Madden and NCAA for ps2 as well. I don't think Im gonna get it for regular xbox though since that died off.

I'm not winning like 70-0. If you're playing realistically without cheesing, you shouldn't be either, unless you play way too much.

BTW, how are you playing with Pryor? Did you go formation by formation putting in the backup QB?

.Sean.
06-21-2008, 01:47 PM
yea .. took a couple timeouts and a delay of game but I put him in through packages

I won 62-14 .. so not really 70-0

If you used him, I'm guessing you scrambled a lot. Since I know that won't work on Heisman, I played a pocket passing game, with power running, and didn't rocket catch (it will be harder on Heisman), and got closer results.

.Sean.
06-21-2008, 04:22 PM
I used him basically for playaction rollouts because I <3 crossing patterns I didn't scramble much at all except for 2 pt conversions. I used wells for the most part to get used to the running.

I've learned over the years not to get too excited about these games until after I play them a little bit. I know it is only my opinion, but to me Madden and NCAA Football haven't really changed all that much, with the exception of adding a feature here and there. With no real competition for these two football games, they know good and well that if they add one little feature that will psych some people, then the gameplay and what not can remain the same. I have always believed that the best Madden games were when you had the NFL 2K versions out as competition. It really forced Madden to be at the top of their game to keep people from buying the 2K versions instead.

I hope EA Sports proves me wrong on this one, and that NCAA 09 is an upgrade. But I am not getting my hopes up too much.

poodski
07-15-2008, 11:07 AM
Yeah my hopes arent too high.

Its just been little changes since 03. 03 I thought was the best. I played probably 200 or so games on that one.

Havent even broke 100 since.

Well, I believe competition is always a good thing and NCAA Football and Madden don't have any competition. They know people will continue to buy them even though they do very little to improve the game. I have always believed that Madden hasn't made that good of a game in about 5 or 6 years. There last "good game" was when they had the NFL 2K version against them. It forced them to do well. I have always believed that all you need to do with Madden is download new rosters each year.

poodski
07-16-2008, 09:25 AM
I must say that honestly this is my favorite NCAA since 03 thus far. I dont know if its the online dynasty that I am excited for or what but it seems like a much better game than last years.

The game play seems to be much smoother, and I like the new player sequences. The fact that you can dive into the endzone like a real player is pretty cool. I also like that you can go and celebrate with the mascot after scoring a touchdown. I ll list my pros and cons.

Pros:
-Game play is smooth
-Online Dynasty!!
-Downloadable Rosters (havent seen where you can but I know you can and thats going to be awesome once some geek goes through and names all 120 teams)
-More picture backgrounds, they really put more players from previous seasons in the back ground.
-QB Quiz, I really like this part, you get to look at still frames and figure out what defense they ran. really cool.
-Dance with the mascot after a score (cheesy but pretty cool)
-They brought back the mascot game
-HORSE is a fun game.
-They made recruiting ALOT less time consuming which is nice. You can still do it very indepth but its not as bad this time around.
-The stadiums look beautiful
-The different songs for different things is very cool as well, gives a real college atmosphere.

Cons
-Online play was laggy maybe it was my connection, but I never have problems with Halo. It actually kicked me out of a game and gave me a DNF which is frustrating.
-Campus legend is too easy to get a 5 star, and too easy to become the starter, especially at HB. I went to ND as the 5th HB and was the starter by game 1. Also they threw to me ALOT.
-No Charlie Cardinal WTF?? He was there in earlier versions
-FCS EAST and no other FCS games. I dont get it. They had it for the PS2 versions why not for the newer versions?
-Corso still says the same thing over and over again

All in all I think its a very very good game, and I would certianly recomend it.

07-16-2008, 06:05 PM
Vonnie Holiday is a freaking beast on Punt/Kick returns! That's LSU RB #8 if you don't know. Punt returns are just silly. I'm really enjoying the game, thus far. Recruiting is fun, doesn't feel like a chore. The main beef I have with the game is the lack of responsiveness of the right toggle. It takes 2-3 times to get a kickoff going. "Big Hits" aren't happening as often as I command. It's a small nitpick, because the game is so smooth and enjoyable otherwise...but it's mildly annoying.

I get such a kick out of celebrating with the mascot that I'm constantly having to do it. It's so much fun!

07-25-2008, 03:01 PM
Wow, this game is unrealistic. I'm trying to make a 1* team into a 6* team on Heisman. I chose NMSU, because Holbrook and Chris Williams are ****ing nasty. So anyway, I breeze through my first 8 games, my only slight challenge being Nebraska. I then beat Boise State in OT, beat Hawaii on a last second FG with the game tied, and beat Fresno State by 9. Breeze through the next 2 games, Williams wins the Heisman, I get coach of the year, etc.

Well apparently, the game thinks NMSU can actually make the National Championship, because I'm playing CLEMSON in the National Championship right now. USC lost to Ohio State, Ohio State lost to Michigan, West Virginia lost to USF in their last game, and now I'm in. Apparently the game actually thinks a 12-0 NMSU team that barely was able to win their only games against big teams would make the National Championship game over a USC team that lost to Ohio State, but beat everyone else (including a tough Arizona State team by 35).

Oh well, I'll take it.

And also, the part that I'm saying is unrealistic is that the BCS would ever favor 12-0 WAC NMSU with no blow out wins against good teams over 11-1 Pac-10 USC with blow out wins against good teams.

HOLY ****. That was the most intense national championship game ever.

OK, going into the 4th quarter, I'm up 35-21. I've gotten incredibly lucky at that point, as the computer has failed to capitalize on my mistakes, and has made plenty of their own.

Highlights at that point
User pick-6 on a HB slip screen (http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/65928)
Holbrook and Williams with a beautiful 54 yard completion for a TD, I hot routed everyone away from that side of the field and then just led Williams with a pass so he'd have plenty of space (http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/65945)

Then, in the 4th quarter, the ****ing comeback AI kicks in, and the computer becomes unstoppable. They take advantage of my punting strategy (NMSU doesn't have a punter, so I kick low line drives and try to get them by the returner, I'm ****ed if they catch it), they score, I punt again, they score, I get sacked, fumble, they return that for a TD. 21 unanswered points, and it's 42-35 them. At that point, I am ****ing pissed at the stupid comeback AI, but I still have enough time to drive (about 1:30). I didn't want to leave them any time, so I started a slow, methodical drive, ton of short passes.

Then suddenly, I realized I let way too much time off the clock, and needed a big play. And I got it, a HUGE reception to Neal Zepphuar (I don't even know who that really is, since I didn't download real names). 10 yard reception, I purposely ran into the safety to get tackles at the goal line with time left so they wouldn't have time to score, and then used a timeout.

Video: http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/65991

That left me 3 seconds, 1 time out, so 2 chances to QB sneak. However, I only needed one chance to QB sneak.

Video: http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/65980

So, after I stopped them on the kickoff, we went into OT. I won the coin toss, went on defense. 1st down, stopped them. Second down, stopped them. 3rd down, Harper drops back to pass. Tries to fire it to the right, HE'S PICKED OFF BY . HAS THE WHOLE FIELD AHEAD OF HIM. At that point, I actually tried to get myself tackled so I could hit a dramatic game winning FG, which in retrospect was stupid because my kicker sucks, but it doesn't matter because they can't tackle me. TD! NMSU WINS THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP IN OT.

Video: http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/65961

Records Set this season
Receptions in a season - 147 - Chris Williams
Receiving yards in a season - 2161 - Chris Williams
Receiving TD's in a season - 29 - Chris Williams
Passing yards in a season - 4496 - Chase Holbrook
Passing TD's in a season - 53 - Chase Holbrook
Of course, I broke all of the school records with those too
Also, interceptions in a season (school record) - 11 - Chris Woods


Next year might get ugly though without Holbrook or Williams. Also, apparently winning a national title only got my school prestige up to 2*. But that game was just ****ing amazing, and I beat EA's ridiculous comeback AI :dance2:.

Ok, now that I;m getting NCAA '09 for PS3, I wanted to do somehting with it. How bout this: a dream season.

What I mean about that is that I could make 6 (or 5) conferences of 8 (48 teams). these would be the best 48 in the country. I could then play out a season with those conferences and teams. No one else. You'd play 7 games in your conference, have a conference tournament, then a national tournament

These games could all be played in the exhibitiopn mode since the dynasty mode wouldn't allow you to do this.

Since there would be a lot of games, I would need help for NCAA 09 players to complete the season. We could divide the games each week to play

Does everyone get what I'm saying? Please comment if there's confusion because I'm sure there will be

Anyone have interest in this?
