    As part of Court Justice: The Inside Story of My Battle Against the NCAA by Ed O'Bannon and Michael McCann, O'Bannon fires back at what he calls a ridiculous claim: that he is to blame for the end of college sports video games and namely the NCAA Football franchise.

    "But the video game comment was the one that I got the most. To be honest, it kind of caught me off guard since it was so wrong and so ridiculous. Yes, itís true that Electronic Arts stopped publishing college sports games after we led my lawsuit, but letís think about the facts for a moment. ...

    "If the NCAA had let EA pay us, all of you gamers out there would have your college sports games. So donít blame me. Blame the NCAA for refusing to change its rules in the face of basic common sense, not to mention consumer demand."


    It is worth nothing that under terms of the settlement, EA did not admit any wrongdoing. However, O'Bannon claims in this excerpt that EA "knew that it had used playersí images and likenesses without their permission."

    The first MLB Mondays Powered by GameStop video of the year for MLB The Show 18 shows off several new additions coming to the game including Batting Stance Creator, Rain Delay & Fog, Team & Player Specific Celebrations, and improved pitching animations.

    Users will be able to edit batting stances for players should they change their stance during the course of the season. Among the editable aspects: Batting Stance, Hand Offset (X, Y, Z), Hand Rotation, Hand Wiggle Rotation, Back Elbow Offset, and Forward Foot Offset (Z, X) aka Front Foot Placement.

    Players will not react accordingly to the impact of their home run, meaning a game-winning homer will lead to a bigger celebration than a home run early in the game. Team and individual specific celebrations and traditions such as the Cubs' dancing pitchers, Aaron Judge's celebration, and the Judge's Chambers in New York will also be added to the game.

    Pitching animations have also been improved to show a more fluid throwing animation with more realistic arm slots and releases. Game atmosphere will also be more diverse with the addition of fog, improved rain, and rain delays.

    Also, NCAA Football fans might recognize the name of the developer narrating the video, Steve Merka, as he was a designer for the former EA Tiburon title and now works at Sony San Diego on MLB The Show.
