I'm not going to pretend that I know what these guys are talking about when it comes to football. To be so disingenuous causes me great physical pain. But in what EA self-describes as "a football fan's dream," and to shoehorn this into terms that I can understand, NCAA Football 10 Teambuilder
is to NCAA Football 10
what Spore Creature Creator
is to Spore
. The Teambuilder
-- available now -- allows you to unlock twelve slots for teams you create, so they'll be ready to rip on NCAA Football 10
's July 14, 2009, launch date. Plus, if you pre-order the full game, you unlock an addition thirteen slots, for a total of twenty-five created teams you can save directly onto your hard drive.
I'll let these pictures do the talkin'. Those lacking in team spirit, and/or those bereft of any propensity to paint football logos onto their foreheads and chests with body paints, are strictly forbidden from clicking the 'more' button.
