Is anyone else as disappointed in the hitting this year as I am? I've put a little time in the demo, and it's not nearly as good as last year or even when they first introduced it.

Players are bouncing, or rolling on the ice. I have rarely seen a player roll on the ice after getting hit by virtue of momentum and not of their own volition. The fact that it's ice makes it so any momentum you had when hit would cause a slide, not a roll.

Beyond that, there's players bouncing on the ice after they land like bouncy-balls. When you hit a player, sometimes their torso stays still and their feet go backwards. News flash, if you hit someone in their center of gravity in their torso, their torso stops and their legs keep going, in other words, it appears as if their torsos go backwards, not their legs. that's physics. The hits appear to be way of keel too. You can skate at someone full speed and barely hit them, then hit them a second time from a standing position and they go flying.

In NHL 12, if you hit a guy, but just hit his should or something he'd kind of spin and try and retain balance. In the demo it seems that there's no physics at all. This is the first demo I've actually gotten since 2001, so I'm hoping that they just took out some of the physics coding to make the download smaller. But the hits are extremely awkward and stiff.

This is a NHL 13 thread, in a fantasy sub-section, in a hockey forum...pretty sure we're safe from 'white knighting' as I highly doubt anyone thinks women are reading any of what they're saying. We are perhaps in danger of people actually thinking ratings of some 'legend' players don't matter or affect the game in any way.

It would also increase the value of players like Huberdeau, Yakupov, etc.
I would say there is a really good chance this will happen, also there will be a salary cap in some tournaments so you can't walk into everyone with your top line of Ovi-Sid-Lemieux and your second line Stamkos-Gretzky-Malkin, with some high end D men backing you up to, as well as Price in net.

I don't know if EA added any new teams or leagues to '13, but if they don't have the rights for the KHL, then start adding some of the other leagues like the Ligue Magnus, Erste Bank Liga, the 2nd tier leagues for all of the leagues in the game.

I'd like to see the ECHL and Allsvenskan added, but it's not happening this year. ECHL so your low-end prospects can gain experience and Allsvenskan because it's really annoying losing those Swedish prospects every year because their team got demoted from Elitserien.

The KHL will never happen because they don't want to be considered second fiddle to the NHL.

GM Connected is online only. Offline is Be a GM.

You can use custom rosters in BAGM, but not in GM Connected.

Oh, I heard it was just GM connected now, but it had an offline mode, similar to Madden.

They're 2 different things. GM Connected is just an online version of Be A GM, and you're stuck with the default rosters for connected.

Oh I just love EA. Instead of just a Legends team they are making two. But wait what are they called then because surely you can't have two teams named the same? Not to fear EA has decided that it wants to hear more of your whining, ladies and gentlemen and boys, I present to you Team Wickenheiser and Team Ruggiero!

What's the point of having two Legends teams if there are less than 10 'legends'?

They'll probably do what they did last year and include guys like Stamkos, Crosby, Malkin etc on the Legends team.

I'm not hurt at all. I guess I'm not allowed to love EA? I like what their doing personally and not just adding in the women and letting them be forgot about. It's cool they named both teams after them. I'm rather enjoying NHL 13 now.

I'm alright with them adding Women to the game, but they shouldn't be on the legends team. Were talking about NHL legends, not Hockey Legends in general. I probably won't be playing with the Legend teams, but it is just annoying having them on it. just my 2 cents.

Wickenheiser is a Canadian hockey legend. She's too good to play regularly with other Women, so she plays hockey with Men and gets paid to do so. I have no problem with her being in the game, I'll probably even have her on my Hut team if I get the opportunity.

As my buddy always says; Atta boy, Hayley!

I looked it up, but quick question guys. I am going to pre-order the game tomorrow. I have a business so I am really busy. I might get to play on weekends.

If I buy that season pass, i can digitally download this game on Saturday (3 days early) and will still have to pick up the physical game right? I have some money to burn so I don't care if I am paying an extra $20+ for it.

Am I right?

On regular release day, you can either unlock the early release version through PSN, or you can use your disc based game. Also, the PSN early release will be available at 6pm (not sure if Central or Eastern time) on Sept 7th (Friday)

I have 360. So if I purchase this Online Season pass for a year, I can go to my Marketplace and somehow download it early?

Sorry I was talking about that EA Season Ticket

I googled it as well. Looks like I will download it early then go pick up the hard copy I pre-order to continue playing.

Great!

Judging by the demo, I'm pretty sure I saw only the GM Connected mode, no Be a GM Mode separately. That seems to be the way EA is going this year. Combining the modes, while leaving the people who want to simply play some Season Mode games and that's it, out of the equation.

EA has already said there will be an Offline Be a GM mode in this, the other game modes tab probably isn't in the demo.
