Mine died a week ago Friday, but should be back in the next two days. Not a bad turnaround, as it got in the mail (UPS) on Monday.

My freaking 360 got the ring of death for the second time, soooo frustrating!! Just as Madden comes out and the NHL 10 demo is set to be put out. I just received the box in the mail from Puraltor, if I send out tomorrow and they get in on Thursday does anyone know how long it would be before I get it back? They said up to 3 weeks but that seems awfully long and the last time I sent it in two years ago it was only a week and a half.

Anyone have this happened recently and can provide an answer?

Send it in right away. Getting the game on release date + no demo > having the demo fir short while then getting RROD again. Don't listen to all the quick fixes. Send it out right away.

Same question here. If I live in Edmonton, how long would it take?

New blog: Hardcore mode

http://www.easports.com/blogs/nhl/in...youre-hardcore

Just noticed along the boards, the glass bangers apparently move the glass... so the top of the glass waves around a bit in the corners. Seems like the boardplay in general can influence the movement of the glass as well. It's at 6:10 in the video.

Last time I returned my 360 took me over a month to get it back.

Took so long I ended up buying a PS3. Best thing I did, PS3 > 360.

I know but you kept saying. "The demo is not coming out in the next few days guys. EA already said a couple weeks before release...probably means at the EARLIEST the 25th....but most likely the first week in Sept."

That would be too late and to close to the actual date if the Demo came out in September.

Game keeps getting better and better. Sweet blog.

However, I am disappointed that there isn't a "Hardcore" online option.

I hope, and assume, EASHL is Hardcore mode..

I don't think EASHL will have a Hardcore mode. Likely you would have to start a new league online and play your games in position lock.

Another cool thing that someone was complaining about in the other thread:

Quote:
Another thing you’re going to notice right away is that players accelerate much slower in certain situation as momentum plays a bigger part in the skating. Good luck trying to start and stop as an effective offensive weapon. Not only is this less effective but the reason players don’t do this in real life is because it burns a great amount of energy (the drills I hated most growing up were the starts and stops to end practice!), so you can expect your players to fatigue much faster if you try this. Fatigue in general plays a much bigger factor in Hardcore Mode as your players definitely fatigue at a faster rate and recover slower so you are forced to use your 3rd and 4th lines effectively. Keep that in mind when building your team in Be A GM.
Change in pace, acceleration has been turned down, less gameplay assists. Seems like they're releasing this as a bit of an alternative to NHL2k, and the people who prefer the slower paced action.

EASHL = EA Sports Hockey League. Online gameplay mode where you can make a virtual team and recruit other live players to play for you. Highlight is playing online in a 6vs6 match. It's also similar to Be A Pro, where you can create a player and his stats are persistent across games and you develop your skills as you play in games.

Hardcore mode is a new gameplay style. In previous titles, people would manually go through all of the sliders and change about 50 settings to get things the way they wanted to. In some cases, people wanted the game to feel more authentic, so they turn down skating speed, puck control, and a slew of other settings. A bit of a chore in some cases. Hardcore mode is sort of like a preset that pulls out most of the arcade elements that make it appeal to a broader audience. Game is slower paced, fatigue plays a bigger role, all 'assists' like a lockon for your body checks, and a lockon for your passing is removed entirely.

I did the same thing, got the 360 back 2 weeks after buying the ps3, it was gone a total of 5 weeks. since getting the ps3, the xbox collected dust, I didn't trust it, and ended up selling it.

Probably "Normal Mode" like regular Online Mode. That would be alright for me I guess.

EASHL should be Hardcore, or at least have two different levels (maybe I read that actually?).

Also, a neat little thing posted at the end of the blog:

Quote:
Try out the different game styles in the demo and when the full game launches, here’s my challenge to you that we’ve been trying here in the office with very little success (we’re about 2 for 400): Beat the Centennial Montreal Canadians with Team Japan on Superstar using the Hardcore Game Style.

Enjoy the videos from Litty, and Matty has a demo blog that will be posted tomorrow.
When is the last time we've had back to back blogs about the game? Seems like they're unloading this info rather quickly, and only fuels the speculation that it's going to be released this week. Just something to think about...

The PS2 was definitely a bigger piece of crap than the PS3 is.

As for hardcore mode, awesome. But it means nothing to me if it's not available in the EASHL...

I'm sure it will be. Plus it'll make the actual franchise that much more fun. I love what Littman has done with the game since taking over from captain d-bag Dave Warfield.
