We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Just saying that's the point of the article. You're right it isn't just call of duty, but since they have gone to a yearly release it just stands out with them more than other franchises. It also just kind of bled throughout the FPS genre because of the popularity of the series, which is disheartening as a gamer and FPS fan.
I've got something to say! It's better to burn out than fade away!
I miss the days when UT and Quake were influencing the FPS world. Fast paced, high precision aiming.
I actually think Kill streaks are a great feature of Call of Duty. It gives you something to always strive for in the game. FPS all depends on your preferences.. I enjoy Battlefield because it evokes a sense of a team way more than Call of Duty. But I also like Call of Duty because I can play by myself and still have a great time.
Like it or not, Call of Duty is/was the defining gaming series in this console generation and I don't think the answer is even disputable.
They weren't disputing that. Was just saying it's not the FPS style they want defining the FPS genre. Same as me. I wish UT series hadn't died off. UT2k4 was the best MP experience I've ever had.
It sells so well, because it's fast paced, extremely small learning curve, low difficulty. Anyone can come in and be good fairly easily. It doesn't take much skill, therefore a lot of people can have fun with it.

I think it has more to do with the rate at which they're pumping these games out. They realize it's a cash cow and will continue to cram the same crap down our throats. Ala college football games. EA knows they don't have a competitor so they throw a bunch of crap together every year and it sells just due to the fact there is no other football game out there.
I haven't bought the last two that came out. It's just crap now. Not to mention they basically scrapped the entire campaign mode.
COD franchise is getting tired and played out.
To those who bought GOW, did any of you get a PS All-Stars DLC code that you aren't using?
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
After hours and hours or extensive game time, I've decided that the worst thing about the NCAA franchise at the moment, and I know there are a lot of issues, is lead blocking. I'm playing as GA Tech in tBB OD and I was running a toss out of the Maryland I on the 2 yard line. That means my RB had 2 blockers in front. Noticing where the defense was shifted, I reversed the play the opposite way where it would be 2 blockers on 1 CB. Both guys whiffed on the block and my RB got stuffed for a loss. I still scored on the drive, but that's pathetic. It's almost as bad as leaving guys in spy to watch out for QB runs where the QB breaks the LoS but the spy doesn't move. Frustrating.
The only other franchise I can think of that has exceeded expectations year in and year out with relatively no competition is the NBA2k franchise. Those games just keep getting better and better. Which is why I've always wondered why they don't throw their hat in the college basketball ring.
College basketball games have been dead for quite some time. If anyone has the platform to revive the game it could be 2kSports. It's almost like..."well, what are you waiting for?".
I wanted to add: I'm very aware of the "no sprint" rule in the backfield. I play an RB in RtG mode every year just to stay sharp in running mechanics but it doesn't feel like it's changed at all.
What DLC came with it? ( i didnt buy GoW but I do have all stars as well)

It was for two DLC characters.
I believe next Tuesdays DLC (Zues and Isaac Clarke).
As far as I knew, Curgan62 and I were the only ones ITT with the game.
I don't believe I have your PSN, mine is "vexerr".
Yes that is who it was. I couldn't think of the characters.

Just was on one of those sheets that came inside my case.
Some actual Payday 2 gameplay. This game could be a lot of fun in co-op.

We still need to play this game. Who all got it when it was on PS+? Is it still on PS+?
I have it downloaded. We should give it a go tonight.
Love a good bank robbery. I still want someone to make an open world game centered around bank robberies and heists (which GTA V might be). I want some Heat level shootouts.
I may not be able to tonight, but tomorrow I should be able to.
Also, after out conversation last night, it's funny that I would come across this article today:
I actually didn't realize that AMD was in that bad of shape financially.
Tropical Skyrim. Kind of a cool mod even though it doesn't interest me.

I am re-downloading it now, can give it a go whenever tonight.
AMD has been on hard times for a while now. Pretty much ever since the Core 2 Duo series came out for Intel. They had a huge hit in sales. Even when they acquired ATi. They're profit margin dwindled. They need to seriously innovate their CPUs and GPUs to make a push like Intel and Nvidia did with the i5/i7 and 600 series. They will rebound. Momentum switches in cycles between all the companies. There was a period where AMD CPUs were vastly better than Intel with CPUs. That was a while ago, but it was there. Additionally with ATi having decently better GPUs than Nvidia. That was before AMD acquired them though.
I got it but couldn't really get into it because of the clunky controls. I may give it another chance if I get bored. I have to say I am a little disappointed in GOW Ascension. The graphics are great but I slightly prefer the game play from GOW 3. The biggest disappointment comes from the story though. So far there basically is no story. I am hoping it picks up towards the last half of the game because the story has always been one of the biggest reasons I have loved the series. DMC is my favorite hack n slash action game this year. I think more people should give it a chance. The combat IMO has GOW Ascension beat and unless the Ascension story has an amazing ending DMC story is also much better.
