I have already nailed a 63 and a 64 yd field goal with him online ... its nice to know ive socred when i reach the opponets 47 yd line ... as always ALL HAIL ZOLTAN
spoiler alert: i linked this
Field goals are really easy in NCAA 2010
No, Zoltan is just a god in general. You don't get to be Space Emperor of space without being omnipotent.
i tried to kick a 70 yarder with him and when it came up just short i considered burning the game because zoltan is like chuck norris, he can never do something wrong and i thought how dare create a game where it is possible for him to miss? blasephmy
Anyone who says Zoltan is a god only in the realm of NCAA 2010 is sure to be smited.
How you guys like the game overall?
cause ive had to try field goals ... its actually harder to score unlike last yr when i felt i should score a td every time because so far it seems like no tackles ever block when defensive ends rush ... brandon graham (sic?) is made into even more of a beast because of this
Offensive Line actually run blocks, which is nice, re-opening up the inside run that was actually effective in 08 and failed miserably in 09.
Also, the OL isn't a steel wall pass blocking, either, which is an improvement and needed fixing from last year.
Press Coverage actually works, perhaps too effectively, but seeing as it did nothing in 09, it's a marked improvement.
I played the XBox360 version and HOLY CRAP IT LOCKS UP SO MUCH. Didn't get through the first quarter of the first game before it locked up, and barely made it into the Eastern game on a Michigan dynasty before it locked up. It needs a patch badly.
Oh yeah, and if QBs throw while getting creamed (JIMMAH!) they put up crazy ducks that might make it to the OL. If you're under pressure, especially if you're getting hit, throwing it is dangerous, unlike 09 when throwing it while getting hit might float it a little, but it still wasn't going to be too far off the mark.
I just punted the ball 85 yards with Mesko.. Hell yeah.
You need to remove the 'NCAA 10' from your title to accurately represent the Space Emperor.
Is it just me or do you not get stats when you do the option in 2010?
I buried a 70-yarder, returned a kickoff and a punt for TDs, sacked a QB, had a pick-6, announced plays, threw an 80-yd TD pass, and broke off a huge run all with the Space Emperor. Michigan has such an unfair advantage in this game.
Are you insinuating that Mesko couldn't do all of those things?
Is Mesko our highest rated player?
I know Brandon Graham is rated higher. And I forget if Minor and Warren are over 90 too. But Zoltan is the highest rated punter in the game (90 overall). The next highest are at 88.
destroy any of you using the Force(ier) in this game. What's up with Denard only getting an 88 in speed, when Tate is an 85? I have to say, it's fun running the option and knowing if Tate gets nicked up you can just throw in Denard and not miss a beat. They are both rated considerably higher than Sheridan (no surprise) and I think they really made our defense pretty good as well. Even our freshman backups are good, and it seems like the two freshman OLB's are speedsters. The only thing that is wierd to me is the playbooks. It seems like each one has fewer options than in past games. Michigan only has Shotgun, Ace, and I-form. I guess it's enough to dominate the world... All Hail Zoltan - Space Emperor, galactic peacemaker & destroyer of pig-skins!
experiencing game glitches with their NCAA 10? Mesko keeps levitating after every punt in mine....
Thats not a glitch.
Is anyone having trouble getting roster names loaded? I followed online instructions and downloaded them without a problem. But they won't show up, even if I physically load them after I've already DLed them.
Anyone have an idea?
That's weird. Try it again to make sure you didn't do it wrong.
Rosters with names are not released yet. The one you downloaded was probably the update released by EA sports. Because college athletes are amatuers, EA can't release the rosters with names. Someone has to go through and update all of the names manually, and then we can all download the rosters from them. But that will take at least a few days
Another reason for me not to buy the game. Our kick ass punter hitting 64 yard FGs. That's unrealistic BS just kills it for me.
NCAA 10 JAM! BOOOOOM SHOCKALALKAKAKA!!!
DO NOT dis the Mesko.
Is Mesko actually aware of the Space Emperor thing? He has to know!
Yes, he is. He's actually a huge douchebag in real life. He picked up one of my friends using the line 'I'm going to be the highest drafted punter next year'... needless to say, she's a huge jersey chaser and that worked... but still. That line? Really?
I am not questioning the validity of your story, merely presenting one of my own. I ran into Zoltan at a party and he was down to earth and talking to everyone and having a good time. A couple people were yelling "Space!!!" at him and he was laughing about it with a grin on his face. I talked to him for a while and he wasn't a douche. Talking to him was only Second to meeting Jake Long and Adam Kraus at backroom and talking to them for like an hour.
As for the pickup line, I guarantee you that almost every football player says something along the line of "I play football here." I know a guy who made the team as a walkon RB during RRod's first open tryouts and he, a 8th stringer, walks around parties saying "Yeahh I play football." Can you say that you wouldn't do the same?
Zoltan is awesome in the game. Another fun one is Brandom Graham. He's ridiculously quick.
So do you guys give this game a thumbs up or a thumbs down?
Honestly, the gameplay refinements have shocked me and made this game a clear cut above NCAA 09.
Stuff like new QB dropback animations, players slipping in the rain, over the shoulder catches ... it all adds up to create a fluid on-field product.
I haven't gotten into dynasty yet (waiting for rosters like everyone else), but if they made recruiting harder ... I'll never put this game down.
You shouldn't have to wait. I want my fix as much as the next guy(I had to fight not buy it). I just won't pay EA until they give a crap.
