As many of you may know, EA Sports recently launched NCAA Football ’13 with quite a few enhancements to the previous version, but what seems to be all the rave right now is the You’re Covered program being offered by Walmart. In conjunction with the release of NCAA Football ’13, Walmart is offering a fun way to personalize the covers of the game! Using the NCAA You’re Covered app on Facebook, gamers can upload their photo online and print a custom game cover at Walmart featuring their face on the body of an NCAA Football ’13 player!
We were able to create a cover and I think it is perfect! I took a photo of Jayden on the 4th and it made the perfect photo for our NCAA 13 cover. Look at his game face… looking all rough and stuff. 🙂
I will admit that I was a little frustrated with the app… I didn’t know that I could change the skin tone until after I had chosen a team, uploaded a photo, and clicked through to the next step. So I sat there trying to pick a team with the darkest arms, lol! I even complained about it and then had to apologize after realizing I could change the skin tone. I felt so dense.
Also when printing at home, the photo wasn’t sized to the true size of a game cover, so it was a few centimeters off when sliding it into the case. Aside from a few minor glitches, the feature was pretty neat. I can’t wait to show Jayden. He’ll have no clue how to play the game, but he’ll still be super excited!
Below are the new features in NCAA Football ’13. I have a fun giveaway surrounding the game and will do that in a separate post. Stay tuned!
New features in NCAA Football ’13
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, Gameday Saturdays come to life with live studio updates and enhanced commentary by Rece Davis.
Heisman Challenge: Win it for your school as you play as one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners under center, in the backfield, or split wide, see if you can utilize his legendary skills for your favorite college team in a quest to match his award-winning historical performances and win the Heisman Trophy once again. Choose from the following former Heisman players: Robert Griffin III, Doug Flutie, Herschel Walker, Marcus Allen, Charlie Ward, Barry Sanders, Desmond Howard, Eddie George, Carson Palmer, Andre Ware.
