NCAA Football 09 Patch Mess

As I said a few minutes ago, PS3 users are still waiting for the “roster” patch (or patch #1) to be released.  I really do not understand what the hold up is, but when I started up Madden 09 I was presented with a 24MB download for v1.10.  If EA can have a patch ready for Madden day one, I really do not understand WTF is taking so long with NCAA Football.

I could care less about the patch except for a couple of things.  First, I have not started a dynasty because of the promised gameplay fixes in the “gameplay” patch (or patch #2).  Second, I see little chance of getting to the second patch without the first one being released.  As each day passes, the chances for a quick resolution slowly slip away.

Oh well.  At least this year I can have a crap for a running game, and piss poor robo-QBs in my NCAA and NFL football games.  Consistency matters with this type of stuff.

And no, I have not been drinking.  Just one ticked of gamer.

  1. Dude, I’m so with you on these posts. I’ve traditionally bought Madden on day one, year after year. But this year I decided to boycott it since I just couldn’t get into it last year. It’s like the game had no soul anymore or something (I refuse to believe it had anything to do with me turning 30 last year).

    I thought I’d try out NCAA this year…guess what: a month later I’ve already traded it away. I ran through a whole dynasty and same result: just wasn’t all that fun.

    I’m convinced EA has gotten away from what made the game so great in the first place and is just concerned about their ability to print money once a year in the fall.
