I am in a terrible scoring drought when playing as the Devils in nhl 12. It's making me sad.

I started playing again after not playing any NHL for the entirety of the playoffs. So far...

Online Team Play:
1g1a in 1gp as RW
3a in 1gp as RD
24 sv, 6 GA, 1 loss as G (defense consisted of a computer LD and a RD who thought he should forecheck and finish his hits below the opponent's goal line when were on the PK.. needless to say, a lof of 2 and 3 on 1s)

Online Versus:
2-0 as Ottawa (vs St. Louis & Tampa) Love having Karlsson on the blue line

I used to love HUT earlier in the year but I don't really have any desire to play it for some reason.

Yeah, I spent a good amount of time looking into that one. Some of the more popular solutions offered seemed like they could help him turn it around, but it would take a sizable time commitment to really change his strategy and better prep him to separate himself from the others. Definitely was at the expense of one key aspect he has focused on. Can't recall if it was worrying less about supplying the front lines in order to really make the land workable again, or if it was the opposite. Something along those lines though.

i kind of want to play civ too. i had an old copy of 3 lying around, but when i installed it it said i was missing something to make it compatible. i think i may just get a newer one.
I greatly enjoyed Civ 4 and really enjoy Civ 5 now, so you can't go wrong with either. Can probably get either of them rather cheap as well. I've played a healthy amount of Civ 5, so I've started messing around with different scenarios/conditions to keep it fresh. There are a lot of great mods out there that provide new techs/game play and other features to keep it interesting. High recommend it.

I get kind of hot and cold when I play with them online. I used to think it was really weird how I would get a rather sizable portion of my goals from my 3rd and 4th lines. Then the NHL playoffs happened and I began to think I may have been a wizard this whole time.

I never really got into the Civ games, because the turn based stuff annoys me. I much preferred Rise of Nations, which was a RTS treatment of essentially the same thing.

I enjoy both personally. Greatly enjoy the Total War series (Rome: Total War was my favorite of the ones I have played so far). Although that is kind of a combo of RTS and turn-based. I've preferred Civ more though because of the greater focus on the city building. Although the real time battles in the Total War series are so damn fun.

Yep, I loved Rome: Total War too. That's the allure of RTS: it's great being able to beat numerically superior opponents through good tactics, instead of chance and numbers built into the game like turn based combat tends to be.

GM connected mode for NHL 13 supports 750 players.

30 gm's and you can have up to 24 human players on each team.

Yes, sounds insane but awesome.

The Mass Effect 3 extended cut drops tomorrow for free across all 3 platforms.

To access the DLC you have to download it and then load up a save from BEFORE the attack on the Cerberus base and then play to the end.

Bioware confirmed they did not change the ending but they did add closure to how the universe is effected after the reaper attack. We'll get to see what happened to squad mates and see how certain races made out based on what we did in ME3, Krogan,Qurian etc etc.

I guess that's better than no change. I'll have to check it out.

I was just going to say that. You guys always get eliminated before I show up. I can probably be on at some point this evening. But I wouldn't count on the likelihood of it being before 10 PM est

Because AC (and Mt. Airy) took all of my money from me the last time I went to each. I don't want to give your money back to a craps table for at least a couple of weeks. If you want I'll go Mt. Airy with you, but another day.

And I already spent your $70. I told you yesterday. Spent it on hookers and blow... and I managed to do so before noon.
