My boys are gamers. I never thought it would happen, but it did. Of course I’m pretty cautious about WHAT they play. Buddy loves Star Wars type games while Doodle loves to play sports. I prefer playing sports with the boys as well.
One of the games we have fun playing is the NCAA Football 12. If the boys go to the neighbors or we go to our friends, we love taking games with us cuz we know everyone’s going to want to play! And I have to admit, I get a little competitive. You think my boys are bad when they go head to head. Yah, throw me in the mix and it’s no holds barred! Not only do we like playing football out in the yard, we like playing it on the gaming station!
We got to hang out with my good friends this weekend and of course we brought the NCAA Football 12 with us. We wanted to get some playing time in because July 10th the new version NCAA Football 13 comes out and we want to be able to compare them.My boys love hanging out and playing with Hunter. They look up to him and any chance they have to play with him, they jump on it! Hunter on the other hand is so great with the boys. He just lets them hang out with him and follow him around.
So, now we wait another week!! NCAA Football 13 comes out with some new features. Of course we’ll have to compare the games! lol What I found out (that I can share with you) is there’s a Heisman Challenge where you can with the trophy for your school. There are 10 Heisman trophy winners to choose from!!
With the new passing game, when you play the QB position the ball trajectory is more authentic (how sweet is that?) There’s also an enhanced receiver control to make better plays on the ball as well as a new read and react defensive coverage.
One of the updates I’m excited about is the reaction time! The game slows down at key times increasing the on-field awareness and opens up more opportunities as you sense things before they happen!! AAAAAHHHH so cool!!
They also have what’s called Dynamic Dynasty where recruiting goes deeper and your recruiting grades can change each week based on your Dynasty modes. Gameday Saturday comes to live with Rece Davis in live studio updates and enhanced commentary!
My boys are pretty excited about this next piece! NCAA Football 13 has the You’re Covered program. Gamers can upload their photo online and print a custom game cover featuring their face on the body of an NCAA Football 13 player. Of course, I’ll have to call my brother to find out which Virginia Tech players the boys should choose! Here’s what it’ll look like:
I love it!! How much would your kid or husband or guy you know love that as a gift? I know, there’s so much to be excited for. I’ll be shopping at Walmart (my home away from home) as soon as it comes out next week! Make sure you stay tuned because I’ll be sharing my thoughts on THAT new game as well as having an awesome giveaway!!
