I got Prototype, been playing it all day. Damn, that game is awesome!

Also, Metro Last Light is looking pretty sick!

The story for MGS4 finally passed into pretentious nonsense, particularly the ending. I love the whole MGS thing but it just became annoying in the end. It's all too Japanesey.

Yeah. It was a bit out there to begin with, but in the end it all became just ridiculously absurd. Playing Metal Gear Solid when it first came out remains one of my favorite video game experiences though, so I'll keep buying them for nostalgia.

So, I never play goalie in EASHL..

Tonight was my first 5 games

So far I am 2-3 with a .872 sv pct and a 2.92 GAA


Not bad for a 74 overall goalie

My Xbox doesn't like nhl12. It's now burned rings into 2 different copies of it. It's never done that to any other game...

Do you move the system with the game's inside? If the system is on or just recently turned off before they're moved (complete lift and move, or even a bump/slide) and the laser will burn the halo ring into the disk. Give te laser about a minute or two to cool down after the system is off to move it (or take the game out)

If you're not moving it, then IDK...I'd be placing a call to Microsoft ASAP.

Yeah I'm aware of this issue. I actually learned it the hard way, when I moved it while playing oblivion some years ago, and it burned a ring into it. But I knew why that happened so Im not including that instance... I was just an idiot for trying to move it. But with both my NHL games, I haven't even touched the console, the game with just stop mid play and say "the disc is unreadable" and then I'll take it out and sure enough, there's a halo on the underside. But I've had this particular console for over 4 years now, and besides the time with oblivion, which was entirely my fault, my Xbox has been fine and has never done anything of the sort with any other game except NHL. It's very strange.

Anyone get NCAA 13 yet? I usually get it when it comes out but I have no time for video games for the next two weeks or so. I'm itching to get that and NHL13 when it comes out. Both look sickening.

Speaking of MGS4, it's getting a trophy patch in August.

I wish MGS1 could get a facelift like OoT 3DS. Same old sounds, music, and gameplay but it just looks a lot nicer.

Awesome. I only played through MGS4 once or so, so I wouldn't mind doing it again for some trophies.

One of the guys on my EASHL team loves making spreadsheets.

He has been making them for our team for the past few weeks.. He finally put out a video of him analyzing the stats

First gameplay video..

Not a fan of the backskating which will be abused

Forward and Defenseman speed difference is ridiculous..

Like the chop feature

Wtf. It's already hard enough to play defense and goalie, and now you add all of this?

That was my first reaction.. If you are going to speed up the forwards, make it so defensemen get a multiplier on stick lifts and poke checks

The new speed boost crap that skaters get is also going to suck for defensemen

I saw a few goalie saves that featured them "snapping" into place instead of naturally moving there. That was the thing I wanted fixed the most.

The Kipprusoff attempted save (on the Hall goal) at 1:52 looked absolutely awful.

Couple more NHL tidbits from a Q&A on a blog with Sean Ramjagsingh:

Quote:
- You can do directed poke checks in this game. What this means is if you hit left or right as you hit your poke check, your player will do a two handed chop at the puck. At one point in the game, I swung my stick with both hands and knocked the puck to the left side of the ice.

- Fourth line grinders are strong on the puck. I know this because Mason Raymond would routinely bounce off of them when I tried to body check them. Conversely, superstars feel more like superstars. When I was in need of help, I would wait patiently for Claude Giroux to get on the ice because he could do more things at higher speeds than my other players.

- Darcy Hordichuk and Ben Eager scored on me, so obviously there are still some bugs that need to be worked out

- The cut scenes were relevant to the players on the ice. Meaning after I shot the puck into the crowd, it wouldnít cut to show my player drinking water on the bench, it would show my guy going to the bench right where I had left him. The cut scenes take player basically in real time, vs canned animations. This might seem like a small thing, but it is small thing I enjoy.

- Fun Fact: Players complain to EA producers about their player ratings all the time. Patrick Kane and Zack Kassian are just some of the players who feel they arenít fast enough in the NHL games.

- Fun Fact #2: Claude Giroux actually complained he was TOO fast in the game. You humble *******.

- Fun Fact #3: EA has a scout do the player ratings for them. So while many people (myself included) hate the fact many players in the game seem to be stuck around an 80 OV rating, it isnít EA choosing this so much as a scout coming to them with his input. Which means all that hate mail we send has to be re-directed to this guy. I still want them to go back to NHL í95 mode where some players were rated 62 OV!

choose a faster team and just stay in position. I always found that most guys try to pass the puck in the slot so just don't run around your zone. I've kept my opponents to a 1.4 GAA and score 4 goals on average in NHL 12 so I'll figure it out in 13.
