EA Sports “It’s in the game”…

and that’s how we know it’s game time around here.  My Husband being the football fan that he is looks forward to 2 things: Madden and NCAA football releases.  I’m telling you if I hear the Notre Dame fight song I know it’s gonna be a long night of either me sitting there watching him play football video games or picking up the controller and getting my USC Trojans on the field to face him. Though I’m not as good as he is, it’s always good to play together as a Family.  It’s the funniest thing to watch everyone gun for daddy.  It’s almost like playing kill the man with the ball virtual style….

this is our “fun bunker”

After moving into our new (to us) place, the kids and I spend a lot of time indoors.  Not only because it’s hot and sticky outside, but because it’s too expensive to go anywhere with so many people. 
What do we do for fun?  Well, other than drive each other crazy, we have designated play days.  Sundays are Family Disney movie nights, Fridays are video game nights, Saturdays are a free for all 😉  with it being summer and ALL the kids being on vacation, we play video games, board games, read, cook & bake together, and anything else we can thing of during the week.

With the release of EA Sports NCAA 13 coming next week (July 10, 2012 to be exact!), the kids have been not only excited, but playing NCAA 12 as much as they can in efforts to be the best in NCAA 13.  Will it work?  Will all their “hard work” pay play off?  We will see, in the mean time I have been secretly practicing as well, because obviously Mommy doesn’t become the best by just watching 😉  Where do I get my video games?  Walmart of course, being a Mommy of many little people, I have to consolidate as much shopping as I can per trip.  LOVE the fact that I can get EVERYTHING I need, from newly released video games, to the snacks we will chow down while fighting playing 😉

What do you and your Family like most about NCAA 12?  Are you looking forward to anything special in NCAA 13?  Do you know what to look for or what you need to know so you can impress the Man or little men in your life with your football knowledge?

An All-New Passing Game—A revolutionary passing system brings added authenticity to the Quarterback position from ball trajectory to play action pass to the option. Enhanced receiver control puts you in position to make a play on the ball and new read and react defensive coverage delivers greater realism on the gridiron.

Reaction Time—Great players see and feel the game differently. With Reaction Time, the game slows down during key moments, increasing your on-field awareness and opening up more opportunities as you sense things before they happen.

Dynamic Dynasty—Recruiting goes deeper than ever with the addition of dynamic recruiting pitches. For the first time ever, your recruiting grades can change each week based on your performance in Dynasty mode. In addition, Game day Saturdays come to life with live studio updates and enhanced commentary by Rece Davis.
