EA Sports NHL '12 Discussion!! (Cover talk included)

EA SPORTS NHL '12

The newest game arriving in September has a lot more to offer than NHL11 which had a much better "engine" than previous years.

This year you can hit the goalie, knock the net off it's mourning, break the glass with a hit or a shot, knock players into the bench, etc. As you can tell, I like the physical aspect of the game.

Here's a video explaining the game


Note at the end of the video he says if you follow them on Facebook or Twitter there is a big announcement coming up. What could that be?

Here is the link to the EA Sports NHL Facebook
http://www.facebook.com/easportsnhl

This is a short article regarding the new Winter Classic play
http://kotaku.com/5803725/the-winter...-ea-sports-nhl

I can only imagine what the Bruins are going to look like with a higher salary cap and the addition by subtraction of certain players. I can only hope they don't wait til near the end of the season to update players stats like when Thomas had similar stats to backup goalies.

Nice. The only thing I ask though is that they give an option to turn off the "scrum after a whistle"

It was cool for a game or two... but It got old fast just having the screen sit there when all I want to do is have the puck drop.

"And listen to this! The crowd wants a call! AAAH HAHAHAHAHAHA. GET UP!"

just take my money EA Sports.

Seriously... may as well have an account set up where every Septmember they take out 80$ because I have bought every NHL game from 1999 and on.



I love the idea of goalie fights and in the video they used Thomas VS Price...lol

Crashing the net I can see causing issues online and people abusing it for sure.. hopefully it's done right... being it's the first game with this feature, it probably won't and people online will abuse adnausum lol

This last season was the first year I didn't buy an NHL game. Looks like I'll have to get NHL 12, though.

Some things I'd like them to fix.

Presentation-Make it like a TV broadcast. I don't understand what's so hard about that. Just do it.

Skating-You've got to make the skating more realistic. As of now it's just meh and players don't feel different from one another.

Arenas-The arenas are blown away by those in the 2k series (RIP).

Those are the major ones. Especially player movement, though. The players move SO much better in FIFA. Make a movement system like that. As it stands now, players are pretty much all the same speed. It never looks like they hustle and you can't skate while you stick handle.

Can anyone edit an offsides call in NHL 11 with Edwards and Brick calling an offsides in an actual game?

"And.. uh.. Not exactly sure why there's a whistle here-"
"It's an offsides."
"Ah. Offsides.

I hope the PBP guy finally answers the question of whether he'd rather play the game up the middle or to the outside.

Hahaha I always thought that. At first I would wait for the answer. But then I realized the answer was up the middle. Unless you're the Bruins.

I think the announcement will be new play-by-play or color commentators

if it's new play by play guys... I'll bet $50 that it's mother ****in' Joe Benanati and Craig lolphlin.

That would confirm me turning off commentary for every game. ever.

EDIT - Joe Benanati and Doc Emrick? Doc Emrick and Olzyck? Doesn't matter who.. out of those guys we all lose.

Didn't pick up at NHL 11 this year, first time since the 06 game I didn't, was more of a financial thing. But I'm definitely making certain I have 12!

I wish they'd make the after whistle stuff more realistic. Like if your crash the goalie and he covers the AI clears people out. As it is now they stand their and skate to the face-off while 3 of your guys hover over the goalie. Also, you can shoot the puck after the whistle and an AI player will chase you around and cross check you til you get a PP, easy way to cheat against AI.

my 3rd time saying this

Quote:
GM Mode:
Like someone said the announcers make them better. Because I'll play a team and my powerplay will be #1 and the announcers will say the other teams powerplay is dangerous when they are like #15.

Better AI on your team maybe its just me but it always seems like whatever team Im playing is better at intercepting passes, poke checking and overall defense then my players.

Stop having tripping being the penalty called 90% of the time.

Make hitting the fighting button more than 2 times, it seems like I press it 2 times then cant anymore and whoever Im trying to fight just starts pushing me until the game resumes.

Better arena music/sounds I added my own teams music when they score, but EA should have each teams individual song play. I dont know if thats asking too much.

Again maybe its just me but I have always wanted more from GM modes in games. Like in NFL 2K5 they used to have after games suzy kolber would interview the star player. They could have something like that in this game with someone from Versus as that person.

Yet again in NFL 2K they had like little ESPN shows after u played ur game talkin bout other games, showing a highlight or 2 of games. Talkin about trades and signings. Im not saying have ESPN do it, but EA can sign a deal with Versus and NHL Network so their people can be in the game. They would also in the off season review the drafts, who retired, who signed where, ETC.....

They did all that in 2004/2005 shouldnt be hard to do that now, I dont think it would be asking alot. Or even when you draft a player have an animation of the announcement. The guys drafting him, he comes up takes a jersey.

The ability to change players positions, I drafted a center who is a tough guy and I play him more on defense. They should let you edit his position but not alter his attributes.

Like the first page says, edit player cards more. Not just say how long he has played but where he has played and injuries.

Be able to use teams from other countries more. Like maybe GM mode for a team in Europe. Where you sign players away from NHL teams if you have the capabilities too.

thats all I can think of now, i know it was alot.
