Toys “R” Us Blue Chip NCAA 14 Offer
Josh | On 28, Jun 2013
Toys “R” Us WAS going to be offering a free Prima NCAA 14 game guide with purchase of NCAA 14 on Xbox 360 or PS3 when it launched on July 9th, a $24.99 value. The deal has just improved…
Replacing the aforementioned Prima offer, July 9th through the 13th, Toys “R” Us will be offering a $25 Toys “R” Us gift card with purchase of NCAA 14 (Reg. $59.99). In-store only.
Instead of being beholden to one item, the gift card can be applied to any other Toys “R” Us product. I’ll be using the gift card either on Madden 25 or Splinter Cell: Blacklist releasing in August if it doesn’t burn a hole in my pocket sooner.
In my opinion, this is a much stronger offer and one of the best promotions for a major release this year.
NCAA 14 will be the first entry into the franchise that will incorporate EA’s Infinity Engine 2 that allows real-time physics to be incorporated into player movement and collisions instead of pre-deteremined calculations. The result will be an experience similar to Madden 13′ that dramatically improves the immersion of the in-game experience with every play.
Couple this addition with over 350 new offensive/defensive formations and NCAA 14 has an opportunity to be a very fresh entry into the series.
The recruiting system has also been completely overhauled, featuring a much more streamlined and innovative approach to team management. The Dynasty Mode in NCAA 14 has all the traits of a fully refined R.P.G. but with a user interface built for all types of sports fans.
The system allows for enough depth for players who love to micro manage their favorite schools or rules can be set to auto-calculate recruiting actions and other team management functions. Aspects of a school’s overall popularity, educational prowess and conference prestige all become factors in providing bonus recruiting points for you to strategically distribute.
My favorite feature with NCAA 14 is the incorporation of skill trees for the head coach and staff that players can customize by achieving goals in the games and season. Your points can be invested into bolstering recruiting efforts or into game management itself. Coordinator buffs can also be set that allow for better player/group skills.

As a college football junkie, NCAA 14 always marks a special time for me as it signals Football is just around the corner. The return of tailgating, my Saturday afternoon therapy and The Big House (yes, I’m a Michigan fan and a little biased due to Denard Robison on the cover) are within grasp!
