NCAA ’12: A Full Quarter of Actual (Well, Virtual) Football

It’s the most exciting rivalry in football.

It’s a game you’ve been dying to see for quite a while.

It’s two teams that have been itching to get back at one another for years.

It’s a full quarter of footage from a video game, and frankly you have nothing better to do then to watch virtual Utah beat up on virtual Colorado. DING, DING, DING!

To those of you that watched the entire first quarter, CONGRATULATIONS! You have proved that you’re either a video game nerd (raises hand) or really desperate for football (raises hand) OR both (raises both hands and begins sobbing).

The NCAA’12 demo will be released on June 28th, while the game hits shelves on July 12th.


  • Interesting video -- it's too bad the playcall screen seems to mimic NCAA Football 11, which IMO was a major ...

  • NCAA ’12 Team Rankings: Don’t Act Like You Don’t Care

    Moving on to very important matters.

    NCAA ’12 hits shelves in just a little only a month now, giant, awkward group hug, and we’re nearing live virtual football. And while we have to wait for the June 28th demo to hit to get our first actual taste of 2012, we’ve got fresh ammo in the form of team rankings.

    For those curious, Akron comes in at 120 getting straight Ds across the board with a cool C- on special teams. While all 120 teams’ rankings can be seen here, here are the top 25 teams/ranking in NCAA ’12.

  • NCAA ’12: Celebrate Your Dynasty By Removing Your Least Favorite Team(s)

    I think we can all agree that NCAA ’12 needs to come out immediately (NOTE: I will say this between now and July 12 repeatedly)

    EA released another video on Monday, this time showcasing some of the new features of the dynasty mode in the game. And guess what? Just like the major conferences and teams looking for a nice financial up kick, you, too can shakeup college football just by hitting the “A” button.

    Think the Pac-12 should be left out of the BCS? Go for it. Want to actually #BootDePaul from the Big East? (Good choice) You have that option. Want to create your dream conference just because you can? Pop a cold one (or 7) and become your very own college football god.

    I can only assume that “Create a Street Agent” will make its 2013 debut. Well played, EA. Now, if you could bump that release date up 6 weeks or so, we’d greatly appreciate it.
