This post is sponsored by EA Sports NCAA Football 2011.
Well, hopefully we've all had some fun with this last week of football-related sponsored posts. Think of it as a brief appetizer to whet your football appetite before everything turns crazy go nuts on this blog in August, brought to you by the great folks over at EA Sports.
EA Sports, of course, is asking us all to help get out the word about the latest version of the awesome NCAA Football series, which is released at all fine video game boutiques today. (Or you can click on any of the EA Sports logos you see here.)
I'll let them tell you all about it, and then we can all use the comment section to talk about the greatest things you've done in past NCAA Football games (like bringing Indiana State to the BCS title in five years of dynasty mode in NCAA 2005. Yeah. That's what's up.):
When you go to a particular school or grow up around college football, you are more than just a fan. It’s who you are. We thought we could leverage this pride in your roots and show that "where you come from" is more than just a statement about geography. By positioning NCAA Football 11 as a game that understands this pride and is authentic to these traditions, the takeaway should be that anything that is in college football is in NCAA Football 11.
And this doesn’t just include game play (though that’s a huge part of it). It’s rivals and mascots; it’s legends and stories. It’s those things that are at the very fabric of the game itself. Of course the game is great this year as well. With authentic entrances, mascots and specific offenses for each team, the term "where I come from" takes on a much larger meaning. While playing NCAA Football 11 is ultimately a great sports sim, it should also give you a sense of the pride and emotion one has for being a fan of a team they will never not be a part of.
Go get it for your PS2, PS3 or XBox 360 right this instant.
