Where I Come From: EA Sports NCAA Football 2011 Available Now

This post is sponsored by EA Sports NCAA Football 2011.

The last little bit of this whole sponsorship deal is a little bit of corporate language announcing their new game:

When you go to a particular school or grow up around college football, you are more than just a fan. It's who you are. We thought we could leverage this pride in your roots and show that "where you come from" is more than just a statement about geography. By positioning NCAA Football 11 as a game that understands this pride and is authentic to these traditions, the takeaway should be that anything that is in college football is in NCAA Football 11.
And this doesn't just include game play (though that's a huge part of it). It's rivals and mascots; it's legends and stories. It's those things that are at the very fabric of the game itself. Of course the game is great this year as well. With authentic entrances, mascots and specific offenses for each team, the term "where I come from" takes on a much larger meaning. While playing NCAA Football 11 is ultimately a great sports sim, it should also give you a sense of the pride and emotion one has for being a fan of a team they will never not be a part of.    

We had to correct some typos in that, by the way. There's not much you can do with someone trying to sell you a game based on how it's "positioned" however.

All and all, I'm less happy with this whole exercise than I thought I'd be. I got a couple of good posts out of it, but it seemed more geared for listicles and the like. I know scrilla is the new watchword, and this brings it in, but I think I'll pass next time around. Anyway, we now return you to our regularly scheduled blogging.
