  • Highlight Clip Contest
    Posted October 14th, 2008 at 7:25 am 92 Comments »
    Over the next week I will be accepting entries for a highlight clip contest featuring NBA Live 09 and NBA 2K9. Create them within the games with consideration given towards the actual play shown as well as the overall style of the video. You can enter as many clips as you like for either or both games. The clips must remain active on the websites throughout the duration of the contest. Through the respective community sites, EA Sports World and 2K Community, upload your highlight and then...
  • Madden 09 Custom Team Online Competition
    Posted August 3rd, 2008 at 5:43 pm 101 Comments »
    So when I got to figuring out what type of event I'd like to run for Madden 09 there were several possibilities. With how enjoyable the NCAA online dynasty has been this would be something to look forward to. The first thought was an online league given the addition to the game this year, but ultimately those are almost guaranteed to fail and more frustrating than fun. I definitely wouldn't have the time to commit to running one. But then I fell back on something I did last year ...
  • Paint Booth Contest
    Posted June 15th, 2008 at 7:59 pm 7 Comments »
    Through 6/22 I will be accepting entries for a Nascar 09 Paint Booth contest. The great thing about this is you don't even necessarily need the game to create designs. To take part you'll have to be a registered user of EA Sports World and from there go to the Nascar page and follow the instructions on how to create a skin for a car. You can choose from the Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, or Craftsman Truck Series. The goal is to create a car that represents and/or advertises pastapad...

    This evening brings the first PP NBA Live 08 OTP night (360) and thanks to the voting we have the matchups for the two scheduled games. The time to be there is 5pt/8et with the first game starting up promptly (even if not completely full). Head to the user created room pastapadre and the password will be OTP. From there I will create the game and send invites. I believe I'll have to invite from my friends list so once in the room and situated send me a friend request if you aren't already...

  • First NBA Live 08 OTP nights
    Posted January 22nd, 2008 at 4:51 am 41 Comments »
    The voting has been going now for a few days and it has come in strongly towards Friday and Saturday. So this week lets shoot for opening up a lobby room on both nights and trying to get a couple good games of Online Team Play in on the 360. 360 permitting (status is questionable right now) I'll be able to hop on both evenings at 5pt/8et and play through at least one if not two games. I'd likely record at least one to post up on the site soon after completion. Spots won't be held they'll ...
  • NBA Live 08 OTP Night
    Posted January 19th, 2008 at 11:21 am 21 Comments »
    With the recent release of Online Team Play for NBA Live 08 on the 360 it seemed natural to coordinate a night where everyone can hop on and find some quality OTP action. I'm going to be posting up my impressions of the mode by Monday but after having completed a couple games I can say it's an extremely fun and a unique experience. There may be some prizes given away randomly however this is not so much a competition as it is a get together just for some fun games. Hopefully we'll be able...
  • NFL Tour Tournament Results

    Thanks to everyone who took part in the tournament. It went relatively smoothly and turned out to be a lot of fun. It was nice having a large group in just enjoying the games. The lack of time commitment for each one was a real benefit to coordinating and completing the tournament successfully. Here is the final bracket. After starting with 15 teams it came down to the championship game which saw pigskin18 (Cowboys) taking on elmira express (Seahawks). By a score of 29-20 it was elmira...
