A big feedback-based update remains on the horizon. Also important is that the ability to adjust sliders in Diamond Dynasty's Moments Mode appears to have been removed (something not listed in the patch notes) while nothing yet has been done to help improve upon fram...

All these years later and there remains no imminent return of a college football game from EA Sports or any other publisher/developer. The Ed O'Bannon case ended in favor of active and retired athletes but with nothing resolved on the front of being able to co...
