My guess is that people are upset that the usual one timer goal is not a goal every time. You gotta be more creative than that.

Only thing I don't like about Vita is that you need a memory card no question ask to play.

I only really play against people online so maybe it's different. I don't feel like everyone is sent flying after a hit. I do get the goalie interference issue though, much different from the previous NHL. I don't think it's that bad. It has much room for improvement but I just believe the talk of it as one of the worst is a bit overblown.

I have no problem with that play. If you let a pass go through the crease you deserve to be down a goal.

From a club perspective...my issues are the brick wall goalies, hitting physics (horse collar tackles) and the fact that you can set picks by just running into people who don't have the puck.

In the conversation of NHL 08-13, I think it's the worst game in that stretch by far.

I had Mike Smith for a while and he did really well, much better than Brodeur and Hedberg did in their final few years. He's not young, but he's younger.

I don't really get that. I'd get way too bored.

Only ways I play are online GM Connected (so ultimately I guess that's essentially the same as 'playing against people online') and I play against a friend or two offline. Same issues in both forms with the ridiculous hitting and all of that. I'll give them credit that at least the ridiculousness is consistent.

I don't actually make them that good, I just try to put some good prospects in the game for a few years since most prospects suck in this game. Most of the time I'm not even the team that drafts them.

I only do the quick matches against random opponents. The hitting doesn't bother me but to be honest I'm usually hammered when I'm playing so that could be the reason

Yeah, that could make a big difference. When I used to play NHL 10 (or 11) with friends while drunk, I used to feel like I was superman with how quick and unbeatable I felt I was.... Turns out on multiple occasions the person I was playing against passed out in the middle of the game, which really explained how dominant I played...

xbox 360 or ps3 - your choice. Game can be had used now for around $39. $59 new.

PS3 console can be had for $250 right now on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Exclusi...1&keywords=ps3

Xbox360 runs about the same - $265 for equivalent bundle http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-250GB...words=xbox+360

online gaming requires subscription for the xbox; ps3 uses a free PSN network.

The debate will be endless on which system is "Better" but having used both, and being a movie guy and HD geek, the PS3 with built-in blu-ray player and free network for online gaming imo is the better option.

Streaming and downloaded content is the future though, so either system will do if you want to pay for movies and games that way.

I think most people that play NHL13 on the Devils forum are PS3 folks. I'd guess it's about a 70/30 split in favor of Sony over Microsoft right now.

If anyone is looking for a good game, the new "Tomb Raider" is brilliant. One of my top 10 or possibly even top 5 games I've ever played.



Fantastic controls, brilliant graphics (especially on PC), perfect animation where you really feel like everything in the game impacts Lara, great story with some truly empowering moments in a great character arc. Can't recommend the game highly enough.
