    Getting the game today ...

    ... sometime after 4.

    That, my friends is why you never buy from the big corporate dealers. Buy local. Keep the good guys in business!

    I would but there aren't any mom and pop stores here, not to mention if EA catches people online early they can shut the store down. See you guys monday at MIDNIGHT!! Hey Basis, lets get a game going.

    Very few towns have independent stores that sell games. It sucks =[. I hate EBGames.

    Good to know. I'll be sure to stay offline. I'll even sign in as one of my non-XBL accounts. Gotta protect the cool people.

    I'm holding it right now.

    Not happy about the big pic on the back. You guys will know what I mean soon enough.

    We have a place in Tallahassee called Games 4 Less, they always release games before the Tuesday they come out IF they get them early. I remember NCAA 08, they released it a week before the actually game came out. I am hoping to get a phone call any day now telling me to come pick it up. But I don't mind waiting until Tuesday to pick up my copy if that's when they get it.
     
  10. Grats AG. I am jealous. I am going to paypal you $100 I just need my copy overnight :)

    You can answer a question for me if possible. The Demo has me worried about this game for the first time in years. Graphics and colors. To me this is a deal breaker.

    In the Demo the color was way too bright, washed out if you will and the graphics were not crisp. I thought it was me and I went to 09. Nope, its the Demo.

    For the love of god tell me how this retail version looks as opposed to the demo.

    $100 on the table ;)

    From the impressions over on OS, the graphics are good. Much better than the demo.

    Few requests, AG:

    1. Can you change the camera angle at all?

    2. How do the Bulldogs look in-game?
     
  12. From what I am reading, no.
     
  13. Ok, its official. I am now excited. Odogg on OS who HATED the demo as much as me is loving this game. I will now step off the ledge.

    I'm liking it so far. My dogs look sweet, field is sweet, presentation is pretty nice.

    One thing - If any of you guys used shoddy images for logos, when they get blown up during certain parts of the game (like the team select menus and such), you'll notice. Maybe I'll sneak in a few pics after a while.

    I got my copy earlier today, finally got to sit down and play.

    I played 1 1/2 games. The first was Ohio State vs. Georgia Tech. I ended up winning 27-24 on a last second field goal. The game should have been more OSU, but I threw 4 picks LOL.

    On a positive side, both teams had < 300 total offense.

    Second game I played 1 half of Army (Go Black Knights!) vs. Michigan (Boo!).

    At halftime it was 24-0 Michigan. The spread option was killing me.

    ODogg (Shaun) lives near me. He picked up the game today. If he likes it, it is good because he HATED the demo.:) ODogg is vocal as well.

    Good point. I mean, it's not like anyone would play as Army for the next year or so...
