OT: First screen shot of NCAA 12 is out!

I know there is a lot of guys who love NCAA as much as I do I wanted to pass this on for you all. If I knew how to embed the picture I would.

The best thing I see is the dreads obviously but the lighting, shadows, and grass look really improved.

If anyone is still in the mood to play NCAA 11 Dyn on 360 get at me @ Philbert05

Unless there is a Dilithium rating, consider me unimpressed.

...although I will say that the screenshot does look pretty sweet.

But as always the key is gameplay development and a deeper dynasty mode IMO. Although I don't really play online so thats probably why I always like to see improvements in Dynasty mode.

<br>Thanks for posting this, I can now officially start the countdown

Looks really good, but its not that hard to doctor photos so we'll see if the game actually looks so clean. And also its all about gameplay, the looks are just bonus.

Finally some dreads, but the franchise needs some more innovation. Madden blows, but if the NCAA franchise can do something like the online dynasty again, or make it way better, I'd be pumped.

 

EDIT: Also, hallelujiah on the grass that doesn't just look like a green plane anymore. That was just terrible. For how much they improved the players and the motion, they need to update the graphics of the field, stadium and fans as well.

Looks nice, but all the promotional images this early look nice.

I hope this is the year I finally enter the 21st century and get a 360 and NCAA back. Haven't played NCAA since 05? for the Xbox LOL

The question is how many of you will play as Michigan but use a different teams playbook (e.g. Oregon)? I know I probably will, just based on having Denard alone.

The game has looked really good in still shots for the last couple of years. What they haven't gotten around to fixing yet is the animation. What good is really nice lighting if your player runs like a half-donkey / half-robot abomination?

Just look at the four guys being considered for the cover of NCAA 12.  I hope to God that Nick Fairley isn't chosen because that man is a sociopath.  I guess Mark Ingram should be on the cover, even though Toby Gerhart or Suh should have won the Heisman.
