Are you prepared for Wrath of the Lich King? WoW Insider has you covered!

NCAA being recalled

A while back, we reported that NCAA was "busted up." We thought that a patch was going to be released, but EA has decided to replace those faulty discs with new ones. This is one of the more recent recalls that can't be blamed on Sony. Ironic that it only afflicts a Sony handheld...

If you have a copy of the game and would like a replacement, send your UMD (without the game box) to:

EA Customer Warranty
209 Redwood Shores Parkway
Redwood City, CA 94065

Make sure you include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number. Your new disc should reach you within 10 days.

Get your NCAA 2007 roster updates

get your ncaa 2007 roster updates
If you're one of those people who must have the most up-to-date sports rosters available but are too lazy to go through all the trouble doing it yourself, then today is your day. Well actually, it's only your day if you're one of said people who also own NCAA 2007 on the PSP. Wait, scratch that. It's only your day if you're one of said people, own NCAA 2007 and aren't an OU fan. Heh heh.

At, they've done all the work for you, and all you have to do is "download the file, unzip it, and put it in the proper folder of your PSP (PSP --> SAVEDATA)."

While NCAA 2007 has had its fair share of problems, it's pretty cool to see gamers taking things into their own hands and improving the game as much as they can. Currently, these guys have updated more than 90 teams, and new teams are updated by the day. Watch out for those Air Force Falcons. (Whoop, whoop!!!)

NCAA Football 07 patch is on the way

A few days ago, we reported that many PSP owners had a game-ruining bug in their copy of EA's NCAA Football 2007. The aformentioned bug awarded yardage based on when the player gets tackled, without taking into account any momentum. This causes the short run nearly impossible, and changes how you play the sport completely. IGN thought the bug was so bad, that they actually re-reviewed the game, dropping it from an 8.3 to a 6.9. Well, it looks like EA's getting the message. They're planning on releasing a patch, something Madden PSP owners weren't fortunate enough to get on their buggy copies.

While it's commendable that EA is working on a fix, a more reliable solution would be to not ship games that have game-wrecking bugs in them.

NCAA Football 07 is busted up? [Update 2]

Various reports from the IGN Boards [Insider membership required] suggest that NCAA Football 07 isn't all that it's cracked up to be on the PSP. Although the game is released today, there's only one review out there from IGN: a very respectable 8.3. IGN didn't mention any glitches, so are the claims on the internet valid? Apparently, some teams in the game don't have updated rosters, one of the main reasons you buy a new version of a sports game. Also, the running game seems to be broken as well, as captured by DigitalEndorphins' video. [Right-click and download this link.]

Until this situation gets cleared up, you may want to wait before dropping your money on this game. But if you still go ahead, you can be pleased in knowing that at the very least, the game is $10 cheaper than the PS2/Xbox version and $20 cheaper than the 360 version.

[Update 1: EA has responded to the situation: "During running plays the ball will be spotted at point of first contact where the tackle is initiated. The ball will not be spotted where the player is ultimately taken down." Hmm... that doesn't sound like how it should work... Also, Gamespot's review has also spotted the glitch: "a three-yard gain on the ground sometimes is spotted as no gain at all."]

[Update 2: IGN has updated their review: it's now a 6.9.]
