This is NOT app related. I’ve been surprised by how insular the USA is. I read a lot of blogs, most from the USA and not a one even mentions the World Cup. Slovenia and USA will be starting momentarily but I fully expect normal American blogs to be on about baseball and what the mayor of Sarnia had for breakfast.
Americans, wake up. Your team in the only real international sport you play, will be fighting Group C’s current leader. DaringFireball, if you even mention a bloody childish baseball call, you have lost an RSS subscription. I’ll stop there rather than drag TMA into my foul mood.
Okay, back to our regular broadcast. You know, like World Cup apps ‘n stuff.
Last night’s Portugal/Côte d’Ivoire match may have disappointed patriot sports fans of both coastal countries, but it sparked my curiosity. Particularly quiet, the game’s 0:0 draw didn’t rend my eardrums in two. I wonder if its fans were using iVuzela instead of the real thing? If they were, God bless ‘em!
If you really wanted to get in on a little football action before/during/after/in celebration of the big tourney but were thwarted by the 6.99$ price tag, starting this eve right now, you can rejoice. EA have lowered the price of FIFA World Cup™ (TMA Review) to 99 cents and FIFA 10 to 4.99$ (a reduction of ~1/3). So if you’re a fan of the game and are looking for ways to get into the World Cup spirit, now would be a splendid time to pick up these EA titles.
EA really is and always has been one of the best game developers out there. I’ve waxed poetic before about their overwhelming success across virtually every platform available and they show no signs of slowing down yet. Their latest title that came across my iDevice is FIFA World Cup. I had seen this title at the top of the charts at launch and instantly added it to my “must have” list. Read on to see if EA finally dropped the ball, or if they were able to get another Gooooooooooooaaaaaaaaalll!!.
