I did have the Howe 5 gamer I guess ... very useful

At least you pulled an Yzerman ... I think a Sedin is the best card I pulled all year.

Everyone got a legend in their first pack with 5 career games as a trial type thing.

Am I the only one who see's the double standard in whining that two modern female players are garnering similar ratings to players who could skate circles around them yet have no problem with them putting a Gordie Howe from 60 years prior into the game and pretending he wouldn't get destroyed in the modern NHL?

I'm all for them including females but curious why those mad about it aren't questioning how they will rate their hitting skills seeing as how they played in a league which never allowed it.

You're not the only one. See my post three before yours.

It is a shame, considering they are nothing more than another 'created player' with a custom face texture. Animation of some 16 year old kid in jr league is the same as that of Gretzky. I mean come on!

I can understand talking about mechanics of the game (which really are new this year!), it is a SHAME to see 5+ pages of talking about a CGI model with a modeled pony tail or something. Or who was picked to have face textures. It took the Devs probably a couple of weeks (if that!) to create these players, and years to bring the game to what it is.

If you really want to see someone in the game, just go and create a player and name him whatever you want. Skate around and enjoy the SAME damn thing as every other player model with slightly different stats.

Idk if this has been mentioned or not but for the GM connected leagues or gm mode in general are the real players going to get stat updates or is it just going to be different every draft. Basically will mackinnon jones shinaruk and all of them be hyped in nhl 13 like they are in real life. Or will it be like every other nhl game?

Once again, anyone who wastes serious energy being concerned/complaining about the ratings of female players in Legend mode needs to take a step back and evaluate their priorities.

someone stated in a previous thread that each individual has to give consent for their likeness to be in the game post retirement.

So the reasons for no Orr could be anything from it costing too much, to he simply doesn't want to be involved.

I asked EA on twitter if Yzerman and Howe are in this year's game and they replied they are not. So disappointed.

Hey guys, guess what? Go create a character, give him the name of a legend, and you have your very own legend!

That's what EA does, although they probably pay some intern to make the legends... i'm guessing it takes about a day for all legends.

You realize in last year's game, they had unique faces, and in Howe's case, he didn't have a helmet...You can't create that.

Yeah, and this year they don't have unique faces, and they all have helmets. You can create that!

It's why the whole thing this year is really underwhelming and disappointing. They've even removed players from the previous addition.

Wow, now I'm pissed.

Howe's jockstrap > Wickenheiser + Ruggiero's careers combined.

I have no idea if there are any out there and since im a rookie user on this site I cannot start a thread about it myself. Is there anyone out their who can point me in the right direction maybe?

Just played the Demo last night, wanted to give my 2 cents...

Overall I give it a B+

I think the new skating is great and perfectly realistic. True Broadcast is awesome!! I love the speed boosts and momentum swings, but I'm having a lot of trouble scoring. 2 on 1's I feel are very hard to execute a pass and one-time it. Power Plays I'm having trouble setting up using the vision control feature. (Is there a trick to this, by the way?) Faceoffs are nearly impossible for me right now, what is the secret to winning one!!

Really looking forward to the GM connected, but I still don't understand how the scheduling will work. Do you just play whatever GM is online at that time? Do you have to always make your scheduled games?

I'll probably create a few players for the legend team. The only annoying thing was that as the team had a roster limit you couldn't remove the current NHL players into the free agent list as you'd have two Sidney Crosby's etc which would just ruin the game so is there another way of removing them if they've kept current players in there?

breaking news Nathan MacKinnon plays for the Halifax Mooseheads!

So yes he'll be in the game and availble to be drafted in 2013

The real question is what kind of potential ratings will he have
