OT: First Look at NHL 09....

Wow its a good read game sounds like it's going to be amazing. So many new features, I love how you can create a player and you have to develop him.

I loved NHL 08, it was just missing a lot of extras, like fantasy drafts when starting a Dynasty. I love doing those.

Intriguing. Are they releasing a real game for PC this year?

Doubt it. They actually canceled Madden 09 for the PC, so I seriously doubt you get a full original NHL game. In fact, I doubt they do one at all. If they do, it will be a direct port, no doubt.

I wish companies would actually show game footage you would see while you are playing in their trailers instead of pre-generated footage or in this case to some point footage shown during replays

Well... a direct port would be better than the bass-ackwards dinosaurs they've been releasing.

You mean the greatest copy paste action sold for 50$ in human history?

True, it actually seems like more work to screw with the game that much doesn't it?

Face it, for EA Sports the PC is not the priority. It's a simple fact of their business, sadly. I'd just give up and buy a console!

They usually have different covers for different areas...

I believe Mark Streit was on one of the covers last year...

I would assume if Price is on the cover its in the Quebec area...?

The different covers are just for European countries...
Henrik Zetterberg (Sweden), Teemu Selšnne (Finland), Jaromir Jagr (Czech Republic), Mark Streit (Switzerland)

Who cares? The ghost of Chris Chelios Past could be on the cover, and I'd still buy the game.

One handed deking is perfect for my style of play.
Thank god they have a stick lifting function, pissed me off to no end I couldn't stop one-timers. This should give me more of a chance against one-timer ******. I hope they fixed the puck through the crease thing too. Hopefully the goalies actually interact with it, poke it out of the way and the defenders in the slot actually intercept it and not act like a bunch of Souray's.

One thing I like them to fix is the tape to tape pass from every player in the game...

I though about the exact same thing when seeing the video.

and the ability for any player at any time to pull dekes off and top corner lasers.

It's been like that forever though. It's to appeal to the masses and not the "sim crazy hockey fans". I understand the decision.

I bought an Xbox 360 precisely for NHL, so I don't mind. Turns out to be a useful console anyway
