Was that a tumbleweed that just rolled by?

And until there\'s a PC port, I\'ll stick with Madden.

Shiite BNB, there\'s tumbleweeds in the regular forum, what you talkin\' about. It\'s like 20 people watching the paint dry in the General Board.

Hey what do ya\'ll think, should I delete this Everything Else forum?

Then there will be no way to post anything not Saints related on the entire board.

Maybe I\'ll do that... hmmm.... that would be kinda fun. Back to the old days of deleting posts and banning everyone.... just kidding.

Speaking of bannings, has anyone seen the elusive GumboBC?

I assumed he got banned for something that I didn\'t read.

EDIT: And no need to kill this area of the boards, I like to come here on occasion to clear my thoughts and for those times where I need a little \"alone time\".



the shots keep coming

No he disappeared. I thought someone else banned him too, but apparently not. It\'s been over a week. Rumor had it, some members were sending him hate mail via private message... but that\'s just a rumor.

You\'ll go blind doing that... or grow hair on your palms.

I sure hope the hate mail thing about BC is untrue. I enjoy having him around.

Halo, Thanks for the info on 2K4. I may just buy both Madden and ESPN this year. For only twenty bucks....

Heck, I\'m dropping twenty in order to give ole DarkandIndigo a tutorial in Azzwhoopenomics 101. :P

Football video games

before i start on the games themselves, i have to say that the xbox versions of the games are better then the ps2 versions.. the graphics are better and the controls are much much more smooth and if you think that i am being biased, then i have to say that i have both an xbox and ps2 and they are just better on xbox. plus all EA sports games will be able to be played on xbox live...


while i love madden, im looking for espn football to be better this year than madden, but i will probably still buy madden and just rent espn to check it out... but if your looking for the best football game then i suggest ncaa football 2005, i love the ncaa series, the games play more like real football games, then madden or espn. as most of you guys know on madden, u have guys like troy hambrick breaking runs of 60 yards on your defense and its dumb, u hit them wit 4 or 5 guys an they break all the tackles. that is just aggrivating. On NCAA football players play like their ratings, plus 2005 was voted best sports game at the E3 convention just a month ago, over madden espn and all the other sports games.


here are some links to check out each of these games and their contents....

Thanks for the info, pak.

I agree that NCAA is awesome. I usually buy both the college and pro versions. The college version has more long term playabilty to me because I\'m ready for new rosters for the pro version when the NFL season begins.

The links you gave me just make me more conflicted. Both versions look improved. I\'ll probably buy Madden out of sheer loyalty and pick up ESPN cause it\'s cheap (I\'m a sucker for cheap in so many aspects of my life... I digress).

Thanks again.
