With one long month until football season, I have to say I am grateful for the new video game Rocket League. It is so much fun and such a huge time suck that will make August fly by. For those not familiar, it's a car racing / soccer hybrid. It's currently available as a free PS Plus download for PS4.
Any other Rocket League players here?
(This is my first MGoBoard thread post, so apologies if I've done something wrong. I tried a search for recent video game threads, but apparently MGoSearch is down.)
I'm huge fan of the Fallout series by Bethesda studios and i'm super excited to see that the teaser trailer for Fallout 4 just dropped. definitely will be pre-ordering for the PS4.
Looks like a live demo will be shown at E3 on June 14th
This has probably been discussed on the board before, but its the offseason and I'm bored. And curious.
So I'm going to buy either a XBOX One, or a PS4 today. I'm leaning towards Sony, mostly due to my immense hatred of Microsoft. But maybe you can change my mind.
I'm your standard gamer. I play a lot of sports games. I like some shooters. I'm probably going to buy Watch Dogs with whatever system I do buy.
So what do you own, why do you own it, and why should I buy it?
Well, it's happened. There's no more college football until August. Sure, there's the NFL playoffs, draft, etc. but there's only a few games at a time now. There's basketball and hockey both collegiate and pro, but besides watching my teams I don't get into the national broadcasts like I do for football.
The question is: what are you spending your time on moving forward? Fixing up that old muscle car? Going to BBB & Home Depot for nice little Saturdays? Exercising per your new years resolution? New season of the Bachelor? What do you do with your newfound free time?
While this is not necessarily a total death blow (user customized conferences could hypothetically "fix" it), I'd have to imagine this makes another EA college football game even less likely, considering the already poor financial state of the franchise and the momentum against it.
Seems to have broken about an hour ago.
In a 2-1 vote, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a lower court that EA had used the images in its video games of several ex-NCAA athletes without their permission in its NCAA football and basketball series. The decision comes two weeks after EA lost the rights to put the NCAA logo and name on its games beyond this year.Circuit Judge Jay Bybee, writing for the majority of the court, said EA's game "literally recreates [Arizona State University quarterback Samuel] Keller in the very setting in which he has achieved renown."Circuit Judge Sidney Thomas dissented, however, arguing that the games' creative elements "predominate over the commercial use of the athletes' likenesses" and that "Keller's impressive physical likeness can be morphed by the gamer into an overweight and slow virtual athlete, with anemic passing ability".The decision could open up additional legal action against the video game publisher from other former college athletes who have been unhappy with their likenesses being used in the games without compensation.
