NHL10 Just blew my mind.

So I just downloaded the latest roster update a little late because I finished a season on 'Be a Pro' mode (By the way if anyone knows how to update the roster or turn off the ridiculous CPU trades while in 'Be a Pro' please let me know) and when I started on the Phantoms Mike Rathje was in the line-up on the first D pairing with Jones. Needless to say I'm baffled. Is there any reason for this? or does someone over at EA sports just have a weird sense of humor?

Yeah but in every other one of my games he either wasn't there at all or he was on LTIR (or just scratched)

That might have been done because the Flyers had 23 players on the roster. Before the season he's technically not on LTIR, they had to go through the procedure every year (thankfully no more after this season). The Flyers don't even list him on the roster anymore, but he probably gets inserted for that reason.

Ah, I guess that makes sense. Now it's making me angry because Aubin is the Goalie for the phantoms... Backlund and Riopel are completely absent.

I really want NHL 10, but I don't have an XBox or PS3. Is it worth it to buy the console just for that one game?

As irritating as the game can be at times, I bought the console just for NHL 08 a couple years back.

That's always how it starts...one game catches your eye so you buy the console and the others follow.

For instance, I bought a 360 about 3 years ago because Tom Clancy was finally releasing a new, true blooded Rainbow Six game. I bought it simply for that reason, then ended up getting really into the Call of Duty series and NHL games because I had friends who played them.

In other words - yes, the system is worth getting, even if it's only for one game in the beginning, because you will ALWAYS find other games to play later on.

I did it for NHL 08. I bought the PS2 version and was about as mad as I could get after hearing all the things it was supposed to be able to do, then finding out that was only on the 306 and PS3. Totally worth the investment at the time.

Is it worth getting? I loved NHL07 until I got good at it. The AI is just too easy to beat. How's the AI in 10?

NHL 10 looks pretty good in hi-def.

And you can also play Halo 3 multiplayer, CoD4 and all the others, and pretty much all good games except a few PS3 exclusives.

The AI in this game is NOT easy to beat if you play on superstar. At least not until you are really good at it. Between 08-10 they made the game harder each year, this year is the hardest so far. I can still win games on superstar, but not every single one. More like half.

this, a bunch of us play EASHL 6v6, more fun then playing against any computer, you play position locked as yourself.

I'm a big fan of managing a team in Manager Mode. And my gamer buddies can't stand hockey, so I have skint chances to play with other people.

That sounds promising. I got tired of beating teams in NHL07 15-0.

07 was silly. I haven't played it since scoring a hat trick with my 4th line center in 26 seconds.

NHL 10 is very good. The BaP is generally well done, though they seem to send you down to the minors after 5 games regardless of your performance. Unless you really really suck, you'll be back by game 40, though.

NHL 10 is great, I'm playing the "Be a Pro" mode now and it's fantastic. A wee bit off topic but here's my situation.
No internet at home (long story i'm in the country and I refuse to pay for dial up) so no roster updates, anyone know if it's possible to update without taking the xbox 360 online?
can you just DL the roster updates?

It is that good. But get both if you can, FIFA 10 is also very good.

Is NHL 10 for the Wii also? I always wondered how a hockey game would play on the Wii. If not, I do have a PS3 which seriously needs a new game to play on it
