Might cancel my pre-order. Did not come away from this demo with happy thoughts.

Looks like they've actually fixed things for once, Fowler is #4 instead of #24 as well.

Still lags like **** on my PS3. Seriously considering getting a 360 for a few games including NHL so I can actually play it for a change

As expected, Cogliano is one of the best players on the game. He's like Luis Mendoza.

The 3rds look great!
The helmets fixed.
Hillers pads look good.

They still have yellow though for the Ducks on the menus instead of gold.

And for some stupid reason Selanne has 85 speed/accel, and then Sbisa has 86 speed/accel.

Nice! The Mighty Ducks home jersey was the worst in NHL12, it was basically pink.

Nice to see the updated jerseys. The roster is super outdated right now. Weird seeing Hagman, Pelley and Blake still.

Not really, I think the problem with the EA games is that they add a new physics what have you that gets old by the end of the first week and you're left with the same modes from last year.

NHL moments are interesting but I assume they are going to charge for new ones.

I left out last year's game, so I pre-ordered this NHL 13. Can't wait and hope it get it tomorrow

Fowler's rating with 77 indeed does seem a bit low, I'd gave him 80. Hillers rating is okay for me. 82 is a normal starting goalie rating this year, if he were any higher he'd be an elite goalie in the game - which he isn't in real life.

If you play online, they added GM Connected mode, which is where you can play with 30 different people in one league, it looks really cool in the first day Ive used it. Be A Pro, nothing was really done too though.

Funny how much more I was looking forward to hockey season after buying NHL13

I'm actually surprised my local games shop stocked it, happy with that.

Any good sliders out there yet?

Some of the team ratings are terrible mind you

Anaheim: OFF: 3.5 DEF: 4 GOA: 4.5
Calgary - OFF: 4 DEF: 4.5 GOA: 4.5
Columbus: - OFF:3.5 DEF: 4 GOA: 4
Edmonton - OFF: 4 DEF: 4.5 GOA: 3.5
Montreal - OFF: 4 DEF 4.5 GOA: 4.5
Leafs - OFF: 4 DEF 4.5 GOA: 3.5

Edmonton 4.5 defence

Worse then the Leafs

Love this game. It was awkward at first, but now the skating system feels great. Also love be a GM mode because:

1. The new potential system. In NHL 11 and 12, I would edit all players and career AHL'ers would end up NHL'ers in a few years even if they had no potential. Now, I can get guys like Corey Elkins and John Mitchell to stay 65-67 overall.

2. The CPU are making more proposals and are making more trades with eachother.

3. The players demand more realistic salaries. In NHL 11 and 12 you could afford Tuomo Ruutu and Chris Kunitz on your third line if you wanted to. Now guys like Daniel Winnik will even demand $1.5 mil.

---

Don't like:

- Goaltenders are too good. If I simulate a season, there's barely a goaltender who's below 92 svs%.

- Same thing with skaters. To little scoring. The first season I simulated Crosby won the scoring race with 88 points. Been doing some changes in settings and gotten a few players over 90 points, but bottom teams seem to be unable to get any player to reach 60 points. Giroux only got 36 points in a season I simulated.

- The graphics are bad, especially when it comes to physical play.

Overall, what you gotta like the most is the smarter AI. I play be a GM with a friend, and we play one position each and let the computer do the rest. In NHL 12 the computer wouldn't do anything, in 13 the computer basically scores as much as we do and defensemen can actually jump into the attack when they see an opening.

So much easier to play defence with the new AI, love them actually putting sticks in the lane etc

EDIT: Hiller just let in a soft goal from a tight angle through the five hole, most realistic NHL game yet!

There's one thing that EA dropped the ball with completely.. I'm playing the Ducks in GM Connected and after 8 games Hiller has an s% of .78 and GAA 3.6. In another league I've got DiPietro who's around 90%

Although I distinctly remember Hiller getting hit in the head by a puck in the first game, maybe that started it all?
