Eurogamer Update (Multi)

Eurogamer has posted the following:
  • Next-Gen FIFA Debuts on 360
    "EA Canada has rewritten the gameplay engine from the ground up - something that took "100,000 man-hours" according to Ricour - and consists of a new animation engine, physics engine and AI system."
  • Mario Strikers Dated
    "The two new games were Mario Strikers Charged - a Wii-controlled evolution of the Mario Smash Football/Super Mario Strikers title on GameCube - and Battalion Wars II (or BWii - clever!). Both are playable at the show, but the latter wasn't demoed during the conference."
  • FIFA 07 Interview
    Eurogamer: "And presumably you see a lot of deflected shots and that sort of thing now."
    Hugues Ricour: "Yep, it adds a lot of variety to the game, with rebounds dependent on the spin of the ball. Each situation is unique and because each player thinks, it really becomes quite unpredictable and that brings a lot of fun to the game. It's very fluid, very natural, and you really have to build your actions and react to each situation."

Question of the Day

Would you be interested in a Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) for sports video games?

I've been waiting for something like this to happen for a long time. Just imagine 11 on 11 football, where none of the players are driven by the AI, 5 on 5 basketball, the list goes on.

QOTD: I think that would be awesome as long as you play with guys you know or guys from OS. I couldn't imagine getting 22 guys from the Vets league and playing a game of football. That would be an awesome experience.

PS. Cowboys goin down Steve. I sent ya a FR.

QOTD - that would be a dream come true - and i think we are heading on to that direction... 5 on 5 hoops would be fantastic. if you call a play, your friends would actually have to set a screen or cut to the basket.

I have an even better idea, how about you hook up with 4 of your friends, hit the local courts, and do it in real time!!

Just busting chops, nothing more.
