Game Review

NHL 10 bedazzled us last year with its unmatched realism and genuinely fun gameplay, proving that EA Sports had finally accomplished the unthinkable, topping 2K Sports in a field that it had once dominated. Now, with NHL 2K11 out of the way on the Wii (and lacking), the company is set for full dominance with its latest hockey romp, NHL 11. Does it shoot and score? You bet it does, although some...

NHL 11 Review

NHL 11 is even better than last year's game, and that's saying something. It isn't perfect, but it's damn near. The NHL series from EA Sports has improved year-over-year for the past few years, tweaking gameplay, adding features, and slowly becoming every hockey fan's dream game. It's been as close to the real game as players can get for the past few years, with bone-crushing hits, fights for the puck against the boards, the ability to place shots, and a huge variety of teams and players, but NHL 11 is the best of the series because it improves upon almost everything good, dumps most of the bad, and adds several new gameplay modes and features that make a huge difference and cause some true "holy crap, did that just happen" moments.

PSA: Xbox LIVE Gold Free This Weekend

Microsoft is offering a free Xbox LIVE Gold weekend for those players who don't yet have the service. So Silver members, this is your chance to see what Halo: Reach's multiplayer is all about, or get in some MW2, or even play some NHL 11. The possibilities are limitless.  Microsoft doesn't do these free weekends too often. In fact, the free weekend is most likely happening because of Halo: Reach's release. Kind of a way to suck in players who have yet to think the monthly price is worthwhile.  Read More


Podcast: Kombo Videogame News Team 5 - Shooters Shooting Things

We are late. This episode was supposed to be up last week, but due to some technical difficulties the editing took some time. However, good news, we didn't have to edit out some of Michael Rougeau's blabbing about his opinions on Halo: Reach. That comes in this episodes third segment which focuses on the events that Rougeau and Jeff Grubb attended for Halo and Black Ops, respectively.  In what we've played in the last seven days a Canadian talks about NHL 11, Jeff has more Dragon Quest IX, and Michael has played about 2 hours of Metroid: Other M.  Then in the news we have last weeks big stories. Get in on the action below. Be sure to subscribe and rate us on iTunes. Download this episode (right click and save)      Read More


Kombo's Weekly Round-Up

The Halo: Reach review is here, and what more is there to say about this week in gaming news. It's the big story of the week - yes, even eclipsing the release of NHL 11, and according to Mike, who was lucky enough to review the game, it's a classic.  Be sure to check it out, and of course, be sure to catch up on all the news of the week. It was a doozy, from Nintendo's Wii follow-up console to Arkham City details to a really special design analysis of God of War II.  Check it out below in our weekly round-up (yes, I know, it's a day late. I was at a football game yesterday, and I apologize profusely!) Read More

Sports Sunday: The Good and Bad in NHL 11\'s Be a Pro Mode

  Be A Pro mode is one of my favorite modes not just in sports games, but in games in general. It really is the result of it being a combination of sports game and RPG. You create a professional player and guide him through his career. But as you progress through the years you gain skill points and can distribute them wherever you see fit on your player. As a result, you slowly “level up” and by embodying a pro and not being able to control anyone else on the ice you really start to feel that you are the person skating around. That you are a pro. Which is also similar to an RPG, which has you embody a hero. You guide them, mold them, and lead them to victory.  So, hearing about NHL 11’s Be A Pro mode is sadly, a disappointment. I am a huge fan of the series but the majority of my time was spent digging through Be A Pro, scratching my way up from the AHL to the NHL, and as an addict, I want more for the mode.  Read More
