    Where will you be on Tuesday, July 12th for the official launch on NCAA 12 ? I'm contemplating on taking a personal day (being as I have 5 weeks vacation this year) and diving right into an offline dynasty with my team. I'm interested to learn what others members are doing and if anyone would be interested in playing a few games to feel it out.

    I'll be home that day and willing to play. Gonna spend probably the whole day playing the game and getting a feel for it.

    I recently moved into a sales engineer role for British Telecom (BT) about 4 months ago. Prior to this I had done 4 years as a network engineer. Part of the reason for the great vacation package is being that the company is UK-based and the EUMA region takes better care of its workforce.

    I am going to be in Myrtle Beach that week. Not sure how I am going to get the game while I'm down there or wait until I get back. The family will be a little pissed if I spend too much time on the game.

    Last year I drove to Walmart to get it @ midnight, played a couple of play now games before going to bed and then went to work in the morning. I'll either do the same this year or I'll just wait to pick it @ lunch on Tuesday and play when I get home.

    I have about 5 weeks of vacation/comp time saved up, but sadly I'm too busy @ work to use it.

    My wife is getting 26 weeks of paid maternity come February because she has been with the company 5 years. On the first child she got only 8 weeks. Figure that one out. As for my whereabouts on July 12 I will probably be at work. I am taking a week vacation the week prior, so I doubt I can get the day off, let alone a half day.

    I would love to get the game the night before, but I put in my preorder in at a local store here and unless they will sell it to me the day prior, I won't be getting it till 11am on the 12th.

    I'll be getting it at midnight and playing for a few hrs, unless I have an exam the following day. Fingers crossed!

    I'll be picking it up at midnight as well. Play a few games, maybe start a RTG and then wait for the rosters to come out!

    I do the same thing for every other game. However, I think this game deserves the extra effort for making the midnight release.

    I am really pumped for the game this year.

    Just setup a new 55" Panasonic PDP in the main room with 250 GB 360 slim. I now have 2 consoles to alleviate any contention with my old PDP, which has been moved to my office.

    Yes, Randiesel is really gassed for this years title release.

    I too made a hell of a set up for the release. Not a 55" but 32" is sufficient.

    yeah all you guys suck, I like my 24" of fury. I am waiting for my damn TV to take a shit before I go out and buy a nice fancy Smart TV. It will probably be in febuary or march.

    Here is what I am looking at and hopefully the prices go down about 5-800 bucks by then.
