If you owned a PS2 in 2004, you witnessed greatness. This game is in the all time greats for sports video games. Blasting Headstrong by Trapt while you are ramping off of sand dunes, or racing your way through the storyline to unlock new racetracks and bikes with sponsored matching gear. Not very many video games you can say shaped your childhood and remain in existence at your core. But MX Unleashed had a magic to it that not many games have been able to do over history. It might be a niche market for the sporting world and might not lead to many sales, but gamers need this. We need the endless amounts of brain voiding to a great soundtrack.

With the highly anticipated relaunch of College Football this coming summer, it has been long overdue. Football fans across the country are ready to fire up College Gameday on Saturday mornings, get the grill fired up with hamburgers and hot dogs, and turn the Xbox back on to play some NCAA Football.
