EA Sports Madden NFL 07 Curse?

Just ask cover boy Shaun Alexander if there is a curse.
"The Seahawks' insulation from the recent hex of Super Bowl runners-up has a crack. League MVP Shaun Alexander has a broken left foot and will be lost to the Seahawks for at least a couple of weeks."

Sega Confirms No Online Play For Virtua Tennis (PS3)

GamesIndustry has the scoop.
"Sega Europe has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 version of its popular sports title Virtua Tennis 3 does not have any online features.

The news follows developer Neversoft's recent clarification that the PS3 version of upcoming extreme sports game Tony Hawk's Project 8 for Activision will not feature online play."

Playsyde and Xboxyde Update (PS3, 360)

Playsyde and Xboxyde have posted the following:
  • TGS06: Another Formula One Gameplay Movie Clip (PS3)
    "I've still have a few gameplay videos to encode from the TGS before heading to X06. Formula One is the first one, with an especially nice looking Monaco track under the rain."
  • TGS06: Trailer of Virtua Tennis 3 (PS3)
    "Sega released this trailer for Virtua Tennis 3, showing more than a minute of gameplay sequences. It looks, but specially sounds, really nice. It's nice to finally here the sound effects."
  • TGS06: Trailer of Virtua Tennis 3 (360)
    "The only thing one could complain about is that the grass could have looked better, specially in the matchbreak sequences."

TGS 2006: Everything Gran Turismo (PS3)

PSX Extreme has posted an article entitled, Everything Gran Turismo.
"To repeat- Two versions of Gran Turismo 4 HD: First, we have the Classic version that sports a few visual enhancements (and 1080p HD), but it includes no cars or tracks. These must be obtained via downloads for a nominal fee; cost is still officially TBA, but estimates for cars range between $.50 and $1.50 and tracks between $1.25 and $4.00. Classic is designed almost exclusively for online multiplayer. Premium is a single-player offline experience that previews the snazzy GT 5 graphics engine, and should also feature 30 new cars and 2 new tracks. You can download an additional 30 cars and 2 more tracks via download, but at least you'll have a little package to start with free of charge."

Eurogamer Update (Multi)

Eurogamer has posted the following:
  • Ridge Racer 7 First Impressions (PS3)
    "Not that it was apparent from the demo, but Ridge Racer 7 will also give players the ability to customise their ride. Bringing the series in line with practically every other driving game around, you'll be able to tweak the car's visual appearance including paint jobs, rims, body kits and so on. Meanwhile, performance upgrades will also give you the chance to give you the edge in improving everything from the nitrous to the spoilers, with some 375,000 permutations in all. This sounds lower than many games, but still offers plenty of scope to get your car looking just so. And if you want to show off your meticulously created beast, you'll also be able to share it online."
  • More on Gran Turismo HD (PS3)
    "GT HD will also see the much-desired introduction of car damage, Yamauchi said, although not immediately. Given the online game element, Yamauchi says he prefers to start small and then build the game up as the player-base matures, and so that will see damage-modelling introduced in 2007, while the first half of 2007 will also see more advanced opposition AI routines made available. Both updates will be downloadable, although there's no word on whether you'll have to pay for them."
  • LMA Manager 2007 Update (PC, PS2, 360)
    "As promised, Codemasters has released a free stats update for LMA Manager 2007, allowing you to take advantage of data accurate to the end of the August transfer window."

Question of the Day

Are you taking the day off to play NBA 2K7 and NBA Live 07?

Nope. Fortunately for me, I've had NBA 2K7 for almost a month. As for Live 07, I'll pick it up on the way home.

No, EB won't be getting it until between 12-1, and I get out of school at 12:15, so it wouldn't make much sense. I also need to finish my photo assignment.
# 3 dieselboy @ 09/26/06 11:04 AM
QOTD - Probably not. I will pick up 2k7, but I don't know if I will have time to play it.

Don't even have my 360 at school with me...so I wont pick it up/play it until Columbus day, if at all.

QOTD - Nope, I might pick it up this weekend but not sure yet. I will get it sooner or later tho

Nope, my order won't be in until Thursday, but it looks like it will be a good weekend.
