FIFA 08: Impressions and Be a Pro video
I've been able to spend a little time with FIFA 08 in order to collect some impressions along with recording an entire game from the new Be A Pro mode.
For an in-depth look at FIFA 08 I'd highly recommend you check out the article posted by Shawn at 5w-g by clicking here.
A couple quick notes regarding online play. All the games I played have been completely lag-free with a constant frame rate so that was good to see. Interestingly there is no indicator shown above the player that your...
EA Sports World website reemerges
EASportsWorld.com is apparently now operating with full functionality for all titles including Tiger Woods 08, Madden 08, and NCAA Football 08.
I have been unable to see if everything is working properly since the site was announced to have returned earlier this morning. Feel free to leave any comments about whether or not everything is up and running and functioning as intended.
Hopefully this represents the beginning of the end to the problems that have plagued the site since it laun...

EA has just sent out the following statement regarding EASportsWorld.com in order to update how things are progressing with the site. The last update had stated things would be completely up and running this week however that has now been changed to a target of sometime this month.

Photo Face still unavailable for Tiger Woods 08
Updating previous articles on 8/30 and 8/28, the EA Sports World site is still not functioning thus preventing consumers from utilizing the Photo Face feature in Tiger Woods 08.
There is now a new message that states the max number of connections has been exceeded. Occasionally I have been able to log in, however the process of creating a photo face has never completed. It is amusing seeing commercials advertising the feature and Tiger Woods promoting it even though it hasn't worked sinc...
Update on the status of EA Sports World
As I addressed on Tuesday with this article, the EA Sports World site has not been functioning ever since the launch of Tiger Woods 08. This has meant that consumers who purchased the game have not been able to utilize advertised and highly promoted features such as Game Face.
I received word early on Wednesday that EA was aware of the problems (how could they not be) and that they were working to get them fixed. Despite that there was no indication of how long it could possibly take. La...
Problems with EA Sports World persist
One of the most significant additions to the future of sports gaming has been through the new EA Sports World site.

Some of the issues faced thus far have been login problems, users unable to match their EA names to their EASportsWorld account, the site being down/sl...

Vote for the highlight clip contest winner
There were a ton of submissions for the NCAA Football 08 highlight clip contest and narrowing it down to only five was extremely tough to do. I went back and forth on several of them. In some ways I don't feel satisfied with this top five because there were some really cool clips that I had to leave out. But I said I would trim it to five final candidates to be voted upon, and that is what I have done.
Ultimately I ended up taking a handful that had some sort of variation to them. There ...
