Donate games for a good cause

Share This Article

Looking for something to do with all of those old games you have piling up around your room? Want to help make a difference in the lives of people stricken with dibilitating diseases? Now you can do both.

Donate Games is a non-profit organization that collects used video games and resells them to raise money to help fund research to fight “orphan diseases,” rare devastating and sometimes fatal ailments that afflict only a small percentage of people. The organization was created by Jim Carol and his wife, Cynthia, after their son was diagnosed with Philadelphia Chromosome, a rare form of leukemia.

‘NCAA 10′ in the house

Share This Article

It’s taken four years of begging and pleading, but I have finally gotten an advance copy of “NCAA Football” from EA Sports. My copy of “NCAA 10,”  which hits store shelves next week, arrived this afternoon via the fine folks at UPS.

I plan on playing the bejesus out of the game this weekend and will post my initial thoughts here. If you have any questions about “NCAA 10,” leave them below and I’ll try my best to answer them. And don’t forget to check back early next week for my review.

Before you head out to theaters to see the new “Harry Potter” film next week, click here to check out my review of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” from EA. As licensed games go, it’s pretty good though I really disliked the Quidditch parts. What’s your take? Feel free to leave your comments below.
