More than a bit bitter with the early access.

Bought it two days ago, still not in. Two of my friends get it today, get their code at 5pm.

Setup on Helmet of Goresh or something stupid like that, with some friends of mine. Sith side. If it filters out, I'll probably jump in with some of the HF people eventually. I'll have time to level both with Winter Break coming up.

Doing a Sith Inquis Assassin I think. Hopefully it's a decent dps set.

When this thing goes live we should all get on the same server (assuming it doesn't suck).

Just hit level 20 as a Jedi Consular/Sage on the Corellian Run server. Really fun game. The early access period, which bleeds into the lunch, started on 12/13. Tried a half-hearted attempt from the start to see if we could get people to roll their characters on the same server, but it rarely works unfortunately. Not many games let you shift characters from one server to another until the game is quite mature, when the developers are seeking server balance. So the server where you start on day one usually ends up being fixed. Ah well.

I know its a fairly old game at this point, but I am seriously addicted to Batman: Arkham City. I'd pretty much call it the game of the year at this point (though to be fair I have yet to play Skyrim).

So...I hadn't bothered playing the actual season mode on NHL 12 till tonight. How f-ing stupid is it that if you call a line change when the opponent has the puck, that they will score on about 90% of their shots? I've played two games and every single goal, literally, that the computer has scored, has come on one of my line changes, and they get one almost every time I forget and call one while they have possession.

No way that EA played that and thought "Yeah, this is realistic, let's send it this way." What the ****?

Not only the line changes but simulating about 3 games in a row always gives you some sort of injury to a player on your NHL or AHL team even when your medical staff is built up the whole way. The game has very many flaws that EA needs to fix. I think the whole trade deadline and draft day trading also needs to be retooled. Hell the whole trading needs to be fixed

Well that tends to happen a lot in real life too.
Just don't change lines when they have the puck ha. Dump and change is what i usually do.

Hit 37 late last night. Stuck at the second job so no playing tonight till late.

Biggest complaint is I think the AH is terrible hard to use.

It's certainly not easy mode were you never die

Every time I simulate a few games in my dynasty mode in NHL 12, someone gets injured for 3++ weeks. Does anyone else have this issue? Its getting old

Coming up for air. Still really enjoying Old Republic. Didn't have gaming access during the Christmas break while putting in family time, but played hard during the New Year's weekend. Solid game, not very buggy. Haven't seen queues more than once in ten times logging in lately, on a heavy population server.

I've never liked the way that hockey video games simulate injuries, myself, and usually disable injuries too as a result. They always seem to be way too frequent, and catastrophic. An injury slider might be a nice innovation.
