yea EB Games said it would arrive in the afternoon as well. I've got class at 11 and was hoping to pick it up before, play a little then go to class.

I guess I'll have to wait until after I get out at 3.

Blockbuster usually doesn't stock new games for a couple days...depending on how much of my homework for friday I get done tomorrow afternoon during my office hour, I may stop on the way home to see if they have it.

I'm not gonna buy the PS2 version since I'll probably end up upgrading to a 360 for Christmas

Just read the review at ign.com and they truly feel its the most realistic hockey game ever. Of course like every video game, its not perfect, but it sounds like its gonna be pretty darn close and it might actually be a challenge winning.
Wow, great write up. And playing online sounds like fun. My handle is PlayMaker77, but I'm still trying to figure out the XBox Live part of the system. I'll send you a PM, when I finally get up & running.

I went to the Pru downtown today to pick it up, because Gamespot said it came out today, but apparently not until tomorrow. Not bad though, 31 dollars (tax) for a new game, and I loved '07.

The guy at the store was talking about it, and seemed to say that teams will play different styles, and he said that certain teams would play the trap, etc. Sounds pretty realistic for a video game...


Let's see if I can win another Cup with the Bruins, while going something ridiculous like 65-17...

Is this going to be better than 07 on ps2?

Everyone seems really stoked, but is that excitment just for ps3 and 360? or ps2 included?

thanks

Sounds like PS2 went along for the ride this year and got a whole new set of tricks.

Good news for us poor college folk.

I know that won't be a problem with this game as I hear the AI is revolutionary.

I'm more excited than a Freshman watching his first Field Hockey game.
I'm betting you haven't played 2K8... I picked it up yesterday (I'm impatient, couldn't wait a day for 08, but I'll get it soon), and it's much much different than 2K7. It's more realistic, the teams have better AI, and it's a lot harder. I only had time to play 2 games (one on All-Star, one on Pro), and lost both (1-0, 4-1)... Which is a far cry from winning 8-2 on Hall-of-Fame difficulty like in the previous versions.

The controls are a lot different too, and I still haven't quite gotten used to it, but I'm getting there. Unfortunately I'm stuck at work all day, so I'll have to wait until 6 to play again.

I'll have to balance time between this and The Darkness (shweet game)... of course both will be collecting dust once Halo 3 comes out.

I've had my Halo 3 pre-order for over a year.

Yeah, Halo 3 is going to be great... Unfortunately it's going to be a $110 game for me, because I let my Live subscription run out, so I'll have to pay $50 on top of the $60 game price to renew it for another year.

Picked up 2k7 last night. But because I went to the Sox game I couldn't play it. Can't play much tonight either as I have to work. But I will be stopping of to get NHL08.

I also picked up Rainbow 6 Vegas.....all for the 360

I went to two Gamestops, a Best Buy, and a Target.

All stores said their copies were coming in around noon time.

Bummer.
