Blitz: The League Franchise Mode

Recommended Posts

Saw the new preview video for Blitz at ign.com, and it shows some stuff for franchise creation. You pick your team's logo, primary, secondary, and tertiary colors, and then you have at it. From the looks of it, you choose a style for each part of the uni. The number of available styles is, well, plentiful.

Helmet styles: 80

Jersey styles: 72

Number fonts: 45

Pants styles: 18

Sock styles: 46

Yielding a grand total of 214,617,600 possible uniform combinations.

Great googley-moogley.

For sake of comparison, here's the number of available options from the best current uni creator, NCAA Football:

Helmet styles: 9

Jersey styles: 6

Number fonts: 5

Pants styles: 4

Sock styles: 4

Possible uniform combinations: 4,320.

Not to take this off-topic but I wasn't sure if this had been posted or not.

It has been confirmed, Ron Mexico will be in the game:

Here is the article from IGN:

"Ron Mexico in Blitz?

Midway doesn't have the rights to Vick, but Mexico still makes a great QB.

by Jon Robinson

June 23, 2005 - Midway's Blitz: The League, from day one, has been taking stabs at the NFL. Calling them the No Fun League. Signing Lawrence Taylor as spokesman, a player who then goes out and calls players of today a bunch of "pussies" (Read: Lawrence Taylor: Getting Blitzed).

The latest comes in a screenshot sent to IGN Sports directly from Midway. It shows a quarterback dropping back to pass, and that quarterback just happens to be named Mexico (Read: Ron Mexico if you don't know the story).

What's next, players using the Whizzinator?

Look for Ron Mexico and Blitz: The League to hit stores this October. And remember, if you're going to buy anything with the name Ron Mexico on it, make sure the item is double bagged. "

I wouldn't buy a game as unrealistic and corny as the new blitz just for the sake of uniform customization. Maybe I'm just picky about playing realistic football, but blitz is not on my games-to-grab list. I'll merely sit and hope that the time will come when Madden will get this amount of customization in their series, as I slowly save up $700 for an xbox360 :(.

Well said in some ways--I'm settling with Madden 2004 for now--but if they ever get it together and do like FIFA--which has a lot of uni templates--even better.

But for now I'll "suffer"--plus I'm not paying ridiculous prices for the consoles--more companies should get in on PC.

Maximum football where are you?

This is basically a "Playmakers" video game. One of their writers helped developed the content and what not. You better believe this game is going to be anti-NFL!

With LT as their coverboy and spokesperson (and the model and voice of the "main character" who is a linebacker from New York), no NFL license (read: censorship), and endless customization possibilities, this game should be unlike any other football video game before it.

Doesn't mean I'll buy it, but I'll definitely rent it and check it out.

I'm wondering the exact same thing. That title needs to come out already. In the meantime, anyone got a copy of CFL '99 they can loan me?

As for Blitz not being realistic, well, I think that's kinda the point. It seems to me that in this league's alternate universe, the "realism" is focused on balls-out fun. They've created a football world where 1st-and-30, 8-on-8, no-refs football is the accepted standard. And, this is just me and my personal video game preference, but I'd rather spend my day flinging a ball downfield Tecmo-style than grinding through front-office minutiae, having to read elaborate statistics and renegotating contracts under a new cap structure. I want my football video game to be primarily about having fun playing football. Call me old-fashioned. :)

i dont know about NCAA being the best team-creator game, when you get right down to it, their options aren't really anything great and really dont allow for uniqueness. i always love creating teams, but im getting bored of their crappy logos they offer which dont change every year, and lack of variety in general. they really need to make it more extensive.

Just went to their website and found out it's rated mature for:

-Blood

-Suggestive themes

-Use of drugs

-Violence

-Strong language

Grand Theft Auto meets football.

If you watched "Playmakers," this is pretty much the videogame version of it. Should be fun though...I can't wait to coke up my star player during halftime!
