I used to play online in some of those leagues back in '01-'02ish, even ran my own league at one point. I kinda miss it.

Anyways, this new one, without an NFL license, I don't see it going anywhere but down in price (a la All-Pro 2k8). I'm guessing it'll be 15-20 new in no time, if we're patient.

Yeah Huffy, I remember you vaguely. I was just joining OTFL and some PT leagues back when you stopped playing. OTFL is dead btw :(... after merging with puretecmo (never thought that would happen eh...)

Lots of hacks have been discovered since then... it's pretty crazy.

Was that (your cag name) your tecmo name too? It doesn't seem too familiar, but a ton of new people were coming in when I went out (I was one of the last ones still on dialup back then, and was having connection problems all the time, so I dropped out). Sad to hear OTFL went down, the league I actually ran was OTFL BCS, we hacked some college rom and put all the better college teams that year (tried to also cater to some schools that weren't as good, but some players had connection to, like me with Syracuse, and that was before the sucked...this bad at least). I probably still have that rom somewhere.

This is a must buy in my opinion. I actually just paid it off at my local gamestop. You're supposed to get a free T-shirt when you pick it up.

There's a Wii version coming out in 2009 as well. (not VC, full game) I'm going to end up owning both.

Yeah, but you still wouldn't be able to play it with the licensed rosters. Tecmo Bowl is available on Wii's Virtual Console, and all of the rosters are whitewashed since the NFL/NFLPA licensing for the game expired a long time ago (and they couldn't get a new license even if they wanted to, due to EA's current exclusivity deal).

Kingsoby1 is totally right, the best way to play the old game nowadays is online (I never even knew about that, thanks for the heads-up!).

Is Kickoff going to have online play? The thing is I don't have wireless internet and I have not seen the DS wireless adapter usb thing for sale in years. I used to be in a league and play tecmo bowl using a nes emulator too, but it would be so much easier if it was on a console than playing in a league with scheduled games, emulation, and crappy pc controls.

According to what I have read, it has both local and online multiplayer (either random strangers or friend code). Not sure what form the multiplayer takes though; I would guess that they are more like one off exhibition matches than league play.

There's no way there's going to be league play. In a DS game? Forget it. Most Wii sports games don't even have league play.

You can supposedly play old school or stylus controls. I think I'll go old school since I was playing the original right when it came out on NES but stylus control for passing could be cool just tapping the receiver to throw to maybe.


I'm pretty sure I read that when passing with the stylus you actually drag the stylus across the screen from QB to intended WR.

I went to gamestop to try to buy this but they said it doesn't come out til the 18th. And that's what the Gamestop website says too. What a sneaky sneaky last second delay. You with your delays Tecmo. I remember Ninja Gaiden on Xbox.

Who said anything about it having league play? You should reread what I wrote, I was talking about playing in leagues online, I was not saying this would have league play, I ain't that stupid.

gamefly had it coming the 13th now pushed back to the 14th...

man im sick of wasting cash.. I upgraded for 1 more game out at a time plan to get this shipped first day. Now it seems if gamestop is right i wasted 1.75 (1 week upgrade)


tempted to just go out and buy it for 30 and throw it up on Goozex for a quick 800 pts
WOOOO I STINK
