Forum-related questions re: NCAA 2005


Will Bryant

How many people here are buying the 2005 version and play EA's NCAA football regularly? How many people getting the PS2 version intend to play online? How many people with the XB version intend to play online?

Is there enough of an audience here to warrant a forum dedicated to football gaming? This could include Madden, ESPN titles, even fantasy sports, etc.

Is there interest in some sort of BP league structure? If so, is there anyone just dying to organize and administer it in its inaugural season?

Should an optional userfield be added to include XBL gamer tags, and whatever the PS2 equivalent is to user profiles?

What's the fascination with multiple periods at the end of sentences..........?

Are pufferfish the coolest, or what?
I will be an avid player of the EA football games and would participate in a league. I use the PS2.

If enough people here play the tags would be cool.

I am, seriously, fascinated by ellipses and have been ridiculed for this in the past. . .

I have a P2 which I haven't actually played in about 6 months. I like to play, but my wife is preggo with our first, and due the end of August, so I've been spending all my time preparing for that. I know I won't have any more time once the kid arrives, but if there is a league here, I'm sure I could be persuaded to play. :biggrin:

On another note, the elipses don't bother me........at least not until people start using them in their entire post........while leaving the rest of the post in paragraph form.......I belive DiHard does this often.........but I make the exception for him because what he has to say is always insightful and intelligent..........and, of course, I could be wrong about that........I am not entirely sure it's DiHard that does this.........but I think so...........ok, now I'm only annoying myself.........

I love the NCAA game, and will be playing it on XBox and XBL. I don't know whether I would have enough time to run a league, but I might be interested in playing in one.

Regarding the usage of ellipses, I simply believe in utilizing proper punctuation. I try to incorporate them into quotes that I truncate. I'll also use them to demonstrate pauses/stutters in sentences. To use them for no legitimately useful purpose is annoying.

I don't have much of an opinion regarding pufferfish, I certainly don't believe that they are the "coolest." I do like the one that's in Finding Nemo though. I crack up when his anxiety sends him floating off screen. That guy's a nut.

I love it when I intentionally don't use a word for the sake of wide band comprehension, but then everyone who responds uses it and I look like the ******* dunderhead...

'Puffer' was tossed out as an overture to a playmate, but I have to agree that Finding Nemo was another great animated feature from Pixar. As someone who used to (growing up) spend a large chunk of my Summers vacationing and lobstering up in Maine, they nailed seagulls perfectly in that movie.

I'm definitely interested in the XBL area. I don't think I have the time to coordinate anything, but I'd definitely be interested in joining a league, and also in having a way to easily find gamertags.

...........ok, now I'm only annoying myself.........
Think again, FKA. hehe j/k :wink:

Unfortunately for me, I have no console gaming system, but long for an XBox. Perhaps some day... <- sorry, the ellipsis comes too natually for me

As far as the new forum idea, I have a feeling once the season starts, we'll want a seperate place to discuss fantasy leagues and combining that with PS/XB gaming is a great idea. I'm all for a new fantasy/console gaming forum. That is, as long as I am in on the new NCAA fantasy league :p
