Would EB Games take in NHL 12 for trade in value towards NHL 13?

I got 22.10$ (17$ + 30%) of credit when I traded in NHL12 for NHL13. But that was 3 weeks ago

The Future shop deal seems better as I can trade NHL 12 and Halo Anniversary Edition for Collector's Edition NHL 13.

If you're on PS3, cancel your preorder and order online on the PSN Network. You'll have it available for download on September 10th at midnight. Woot woot!

Gionta is really close but I'm pretty sure it's not his actual face.

All faces look 100% better though. So even guys who don't look 100% lifelike, they look a lot closer because they added so many faces with lots of detail.

I didn't look at everyone though.

Speaking as someone who hated NHL 12 and didn't expect this game to be anything special:

NHL 13 is superb and by far the best hockey videogame of all time. And I haven't played HUT or GM Connected. On gameplay, Be a GM, etc. offline alone, it's easily worth the 60 bucks. I've never had more fun playing a sports (maybe any) game before in my life.

Well done EA.

By the way put zero stock in prospect ratings. Teenage players are measured on a different meter than adult players.

For example, MacKinnon in my Be a GM was a 60 overall with all of his stats above 70. Within two years he had jumped to a 79.

I agree. at first blush it looks like nhl 12 11 10... but the models are improved and the gameplay is fantastic. played two games, won 3-2 and 4-2, and scored seven different goals.

great players play like great players. each type has value though, as grinders can muck it up and cycle to keep pressure on while fast guys FLY, perhaps a bit too much.

i can't tell you how fun it is to catch the d flatfooted and burn them.

Could it be his poise ? I know that in NHL12, when a player got to 75 in poise, his overall jumped by 2 or 3. Maybe it's the same way in NHL13 but with different values and a higher "jump".

That's because the new OVR calculation is exponential rather than linear.

It's why if you drop ONE key attribute from 99 to 36, you can see your OVR drop 34 points.

Tell me if I am wrong,

Green: 100% will make his potential
Red: Very good chance of reaching his potential
Yellow: Might reach his potential
White: Already reached his potential

Poise no longer adds a static bonus once certain levels are reached (no attribute does this year).

Red is that he's pretty unlikely to reach that potential.

Good to hear. It was completely dumb to have a static bonus once certain levels of poise were reached. If it's based on age, then that's much better. And seeing how much Murray seems to improve within one season, it seems like there will be much more prospects that will be NHL ready within one season or two - where many took 3-4 years in NHL12.

Poise only adds a bit to your Overall this year, but it doesn't have as big of an effect as last year. Faceoffs/Speed/Acceleration also now all add to a player's overall. Last year Faceoffs didn't do anything and speed/acceleration had to be over 90 to really add any points.

I haven't fooled around with around with BAGM, is the potential rating what he's going to be or how well he progresses? Would it make a difference what rating he starts out with? Is 4.5 star potential capped at a certain number?

If you're talking real young guys, there's no harm in keeping them in the CHL. I drafted one kid 6th overall, ~60 rating, kept him in the C, and he jumped to 84 after one year.

My only two complaints on Be a Pro is that my bar goes down so quick and I give up the Puck to easy.I have to wonder if both are because my overall right now is 68

I think they finally fixed the framerate issue. It feels smoother to me this morning.

This game is a huge improvement over NHL 12. Actually feels like hockey.

MacKinnon, Shinkaruk, Monahan was the top 3 in mine. They seem to have got the top prospects dead on but only from 2013 and only the North American ones. Barkov and Ristolainen both went third round and in 2014 Ekblad was a 7th rounder...
