Hells to the Yeah: The Rebeldes Are Down With New EA Sports FIFA STREET Game

We ran this review unsolicited by EA SPORTS, but once they read this and found out we had little Rebelde gamers, they sent us a copy. ¡GRACIAS! But we are still buying a few copies as well.

The Rebeldes are gamers. Not shoot em up, war gamers, but FIFA Soccer gamers. We love FIFA 2009 and FIFA 2010, were kind of bummed that FIFA 2011 changed a bit, but were happy when FIFA 2012 came back, much improved.

So, we are a bit excited to know that EA Sports, the makers of the FIFA video games, will be releasing a new game called FIFA STREET for PS3 and XBox on March 13. To all those who think we just like to crap on brands, we actually love brands with edge and with authenticity. We love brands that roll with our vibe and make us feel like the soccer punks that we are. After checking out the demos and the trailers and then finding out the MESSI is on the cover of the FIFA STREET, we are so down. (By the way, we are an independent site and we love soccer and we love video games. Once in a while, when our two favorite non-Internet pastimes join forces, we like to blog about it. And the good thing about EA SPORTS? Well, let's just say we enjoying writing about things other than CafePress these days.)

So, here are the reasons why we are excited to buy our copy of FIFA STREET on March 13;

MESSI IS ON THE COVER

MOST REBELDES ARE MESSI FANS

(EXCEPT FOR OUR TECH GUY, WHO IS A MERENGUE

AND OUR PERUVIAN SPOKEN WORD POET FROM MINNESOTA) 

 

THE GAME HAS SWAGGER AND IT HAS SOME BAD-ASSNESS

 

 

WE WILL GET TO TALK SMACK WITH ALL THE REBELDES 

AND WE WILL HAVE VIDEO TO PROVE IT!

This is what we love about it. You can submit your video to the game and TRASH TALK, BRAG, SHOW YOURSELF OFF. This is what EA SPORTS is saying and if they deliver, this is exactly the kind of social gaming we are looking for:

“Street football is all about the one-on-one battle, when you pull off a trick to roast your opponent,” said producer Sid Misra. “The Street Network brings that real-world swagger into the game by enabling players to capture video of those moments and share them with everyone in their street network to see, and providing friends with a way to compare each other throughout the game.”

The Street Network will enrich the World Tour story mode, where gamers create a team of friends and compete in a connected world against other FIFA Street gamers’ teams. Players will be able to follow each other’s status as they build their squads, unlock new tricks, and progress through the story of their journey to street football glory. Players will be able to share and compare progress with friends directly in the Street Network and it will also broadcast in-game videos like “Goals of the Week”, and alert friends to each other’s accomplishments throughout the game.
