The Line Drive 10/2

Posted October 2nd, 2011 at 10:15 am

The Line Drive is a weekly collection of news, links, and updates that didn’t necessarily warrant their own postings.

•EA Mobile released an update for Madden 12 on Android – as mentioned recently the game this year has been getting terrible response. With the update now it won’t even load.
•NBA 2K12 through Amazon can be ordered all the way through Monday afternoon and get the deal along with it delivered on Tuesday (360PS3).
•Kotaku talks about 2K Sports decision to begin offering DLC.
•Download the manuals for NBA 2K12 in PDF form.
•Add me to a circle on Google Plus and I’ll do so in return. Have begun side-blogging on there (leading into discussions) and plan to continue using the service to do so in the future. Once added to my gamers circle you’ll be able to read all the game-related stuff!

    New Girl is hilarious. My girlfriend wanted to watch it one night and I kept saying “no…never…nope” but I finally gave in and it turns out to be an awesome show! Good story, excellent characters with the perfect lines, just a good show.

  • Good move by 2K releasing a PDF manual. If publishers are going to stop printing them for everyone, players who are new to a game and might be completely lost should still have some way of attaining a guide in print.

    NOTHING even remotely made me want to go watch Real Steel.  It looked like the cheesiest movie in the world when I saw the previews, but now you have me interested.

    MAYBE I’ll check it out
