I've already decided that there is no chance I purchase a new/unused copy of NHL 13 from EA.....I'll probably rent it (thinking about getting on GameFly anyway) and decide if its worth buying a used copy a few weeks after launch.
Hopefully that momentum thing fixes the figure skaters, and hopefully that Be a GM league plays like I envisioned HUT to be, but wasn't.
Hooked up the box tonight. Played some versus. Am 2-1 so far tonight. Its hard adjusting to the speed. For the last 8 months I've been playing Be a GM with the game on the highest speed. It's hard changing speeds to something that slow.
Anyways, Scored two goals in the first five minutes. Then he slapshot heroed in the middle of 4 guys 5 feet from the goalie, even though I poke checked it off the other guy right to him and he was being checked at the time. 2-1 lead in the late third, passed a puck to a fleeting winger down the sideboards, hits a stick lying in the way, they get on a 2-1 and score, just barely crossing the goalline. They tied it up with 7.7 seconds left. Won the draw to Doughty, played off the pass on the opponent, then I rushed the zone, Slapshot low on Thomas, got the rebound and scored with .2 seconds left. Huzzah!
Shots ended up being 34-6. Don't know how my games are always this close when I get so many opportunities.
Decided to do a Be a GM with the Flyers since they have so many more assets to trade. Gonna do a combo of trading for young prospects while still trying to field a competitive on ice team. Pronger, Timonen, Jagr, and Briere have to go though, they're getting old and their value is only going to decrease from here on out.
