NCAA Football 12 Shot 1

In this week’s releases, we really don’t have much in the way of hyped up game releases. Instead, the biggest releases take their inspiration from outside gaming. NCAA Football 12 will be a nice precursor to the looming Madden release while Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 proves that the childhood fantasy has grown up. I actually haven’t seen a single Harry Potter movie myself until Deathly Hallows, Part 1, so no cringing images of Quidditch here; this movie game doesn’t sound that bad compared to another football game from EA.
