NHL 11 Trailer Sports New Physics

I had a chance to play NHL 11 this year at E3. I did up a preview of the game where I explored some of the tweaks and additions to this year's package. From that preview, I noted how the new physics system dynamically changes the game. Exactly: "It's a completely different game, no matter what anyone says. The physics feel different, the way the game plays is different, and the minor tweaks pile up to a much larger, changed NHL experience. And the way things break down, so far, the gameplay possibilities seem limitless." Over a month has passed since then. I'll openly admit standing by my initial impressions. The game plays differently than it ever has. The transitions from 08 to 09 to 10 all carried upgrades to gameplay, additional mechanics and nuances. 11 has all those things, sure, but the package is arranged with an entirely new feel. And now there's a trailer exhibiting exactly that. Catch a few minutes after the break of developer commentary and gameplay footage centered around broken sticks, the new hitting system and face-offs. What all of that has to do with a monkey playing hockey? I have no idea... Read More

EA Announces NHL Slapshot For the Wii

EA Sports announced NHL Slapshot today, a Wii-only hockey game featuring the Great One, aka Wayne Gretzky, on the cover and in the game as a player. The game will arrive on September 7 in North America, the same day that NHL 11 is scheduled to hit store shelves for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it's being developed by EA Canada, the team behind NHL 10, , and FIFA 10. NHL Slapshot will be EA's first NHL game made for the Wii, and will come a hockey stick peripheral that is 21-inches long and which EA says will revolutionize video game hockey. Will the peripheral be a waste? And what differentiates Slapshot from NHL 11? Hit the break to find out. Read More

Take-Two Announces NHL 2K11 Wii Exclusivity

Take-Two Announces NHL 2K11 Wii Exclusivity

We heard rumors that NHL 2K11 had been cancelled, but the series will live on this season on the Wii. Recently, many developers have been moving away from platform exclusivity, but Take-Two is heading in the opposite direction. During a conference call with their investors, Take-Two revealed that the game will appear exclusively on the Wii. They also stated that it will not be released prior to the next hockey season to allow for more development time for the 2K12 installment, but is that the only reason? Read on to hear Take-Two's reasoning. Read More

Madden 09 and NBA 09 on Chopping Block for EA Sports' Online Cuts

A commonly-heard complaint about EA Sports titles such as Madden is that it is just the same game, repackaged year after year with a few stat tweaks and the like. And yet, the complaint continues, fans eat it up year after year, thus making the company plenty of money. However, one must wonder if perhaps these same fans who have padded EA's pockets year after year have begun to catch on, thus prompting the company to take action by shutting down the servers for a number of its "09" titles.

E3 2009: NHL 10 Hands-On

NHL 09 set the bar so high for EA Vancouver that it made life for the next in the series that much more difficult to go through in the eyes of fans. And, quite frankly, it made life even more impossible for the NHL 2K team as well. NHL 10 arrives hot on the heels of easily the most critically successful hockey title in the history of video games. It's a bold statement, for sure, but NHL 09 won Sports Game of the Year awards all across the board from almost every publication (even Kombo). So NHL 10 has an even bigger train of hype and expectation in front of it than 09 picked off of 08. Since 07, with the introduction of the Skill Stick, the NHL series has dynamically changed the game of video hockey... and that's for the better. The experience has become more natural, more immersive and even more user friendly. I can't even conceive of going back to the button press method of shooting after I've spent three years with the stick. And after 09, I don't think I'll be able to enjoy a team sports title again unless it comes with its own massive league and community like the EASHL. So, like I said, this is one hell of an act to follow. But then up skates NHL 10... Read More

Halo 3 Snatches Top Spot From CoD: World at War

Thank you Mythic Map Pack. With your efforts, Halo 3 managed to surpass Call of Duty: World at War for the week of March 2nd in terms of LIVE activity. Major Nelson released his typical top 10 lists of 360 activity, which you'll catch after the break. Street Fighter IV is in the pack, but I was surprised exactly how low it placed.
