Been playing Simpsons Tapped Out. Kind of fun, kind of annoying.

I am a hardcore retro-gaming nerd.

I own an x-box 360 wireless controller with the little transmitter thingy that lets windows use it. I got it because I wanted a wireless controller to play games with and the 360s controller design is just about the best thing ever. The only problem is the D-Pad kind of sucks for 2-d games because of how mushy it is and how much crosstalk it generates (for example, pressing left and actually getting up or down).

So I found a mod on the internet that looked pretty easy to do and I just spent a couple of hours taking apart and reassembling my controller over and over until I found the best feel for it. I think it was worth it. What I ended up doing was sanding around the well that the d-pad sits in to give it more room to move, and added a little washer to the inside mechanism to take some of the slip away and give it better accuracy.

It has significantly improved its ability to play 2-d games. There is still some crosstalk, but not much more than you would get with a great d-pad like the SNES one.

No, he will.

EA got a new license for the AHL roster so he can now be added.

Speaking of NHL 13, wanna play one online VS in 5 minutes or so?

I'd play EASHL but I can't leave my team, sorry. But we should play against each others' teams some day. It'll be fun. You'll need a human goalie though, as we have one.

Pulled Dumba in one of my free pre-order packs today. Can't sell him since it's a free pack, but there's no way I'll be using him either.

Son of a *****! I see that Koivu is injured for the next 2 to 3 months in the EA NHL 13 simulation. Looks like we'll never see a SOTW Koivu for HUT now.

On the bright side, they do have a SOTW Parise this week and he's listed as a Wild rather than a Devil.

ABOUT TIME!!! Roster update for the AHL just came out. Brodin, Phillips, Coyle in the game now and many prospects have received a big stat boost. A couple examples include Granlund going from a 67 to a 75, and Larsson going from a 58 to a 67 (I think, it's at least 63).

So, what are Granlund, Bulmer, Brodin, Coyle, Larsson and Phillips overalls and potential?

I'd be happy to tell you as I'm just about to start a brand new Be a GM mode with this new update. If I recall right, before the update their overalls and potential ratings were:

Granlund: 67 Overall 4 1/2 Stars
Bulmer: Can't remember
Brodin: N/A
Coyle: 58 Overall 4 Stars
Larsson: 58 Overall 2 1/2 Stars
Phillips: 62 Overall 3 1/2 Stars

With the update they are now:

Granlund: 75 Overall 4 1/2 Stars
Bulmer: 65 3 Stars
Brodin: 71 Overall 4 Stars
Coyle: 69 Overall 4 1/2 Stars
Larsson: 67 Overall 3 1/2 Stars
Phillips: 65 Overall 4 Stars

Surprised they gave Coyle 4 1/2 Stars rather than just 4. Zucker only has 3 Stars and he's putting up much better numbers, although he's the only Wild prospect with Green stars rather than gold.

That's amazing.

I guess EA took a look at HF's Team Prospects Ranking.

Thanks for the quick heads up.

Also, I unlocked Legend 1 player card on EASHL earlier tonight. Woo!

Well I never made it there on 12.


I think I have 223 GP overall, with around 140-150 with my club and rest are sparring matches.

Really can't remember my point totals, but I think I'm still under PPG by 30-40 points or so. I play mostly as a D-man, so that explains the assists/goals-ratio.

I've taken up playing FWD recently though, and I must say, it is pleasant, especially with my D experience so I can actually be useful on both sides of the puck. I'm still primarily a D though.

We should play an EASHL game versus each others' clubs sometimes. You know, a challenge match.

Well, I have lost interest with video game for some reason.

Maybe it's because my job is killing me.
