Great news. I know some people who are waiting on this before they grab a next-gen console.
I bought a ps4 day one and was bummed out to know that there was no PS4 version... Than again the NHL team at EA is very small and would rather they release a finished product than a rush piece of garbage
No PC wow, okay EA if you don't want my money
Have their sports games ever sold well on PC?
Fifa 14 sold 270,000 http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... so I'm sure if they focused on the market they would do well
The series hasn't been on PC in 5 years. Seems like there's not enough people who think like you do to warrant it. p.s. according to your link the PC version of FIFA was outsold by the Vita version... the VITA version... the VITA version!
Nobody buys a hockey game for pc.
But they buy soccer games on PC
All games are bought on PC. I buy FIFA on my PC. I love NHL and prefer it to FIFA and didn't get last years as it was only available on last gen. PC always blew away PS3 and 360 so yeah with sports games where you can obviously tell the difference, yeah it makes sense to go PC. The issue is EA limits its major games other than The Sims to Origin on PC and that kills sales. If they released there games on STEAM they would sell 10X more copies. It what killed titanfall sales on PC.
Cant wait. next gen and new commentary! I am hoping this will be as epic as it sounds
im hyped! a true hd nhl game was long overdue ! :D
Can't stand "doc". He's very annoying
Cant be anymore annoying than the same overplayed commentary of the past 10 years
Doc emmerick is awesome
Regis "Pierre" McGuire makes me want to turn the volume allll the way down. Hopefully he's not in this game.
Doc is one of the best, he can be overly "poetic" though. Randy Hahn and Drew Remenda are my favorite announcers (Shark home ice broadcasters). It could be because the Sharks are my favorite team, but i find them to be without bias. Colorado broadcasters are pretty cool too. I think EA needs to fork up some cash (lord knows they make a killing off of HUT), and get team-specific home-ice announcers for each team. Example, I pick Sharks, you pick Penguins in versus. You have Bob Erry and Paul Stagerwalt (most annoying announcers in the NHL) and i have Drew Remenda and Randy Hahn. We'd both have different commentary tracks. IMO that would be so awesome. Though, getting rid of the old track is a step in the right direction.
The last time EA said they where going to put in emersive features in a game it was the latest Madden game and that was fucking terrible!
Finally, NHL comes to next-gen!
Finally I have been waiting too long for some small details. Hopefully at e3 they show some next gen footage.
Very excited for this release but I did have to chuckle at the view of the Red Wings jersey rippling slightly as if in the wind....inside an arena.
On epic proportions! Haha yeah that is pretty funny.
ive talked to one of the playtesters and he said everybody was in awe at the way the jerseys moved. he said it was kinda the same feeling that he got when he saw the car door close in the division trailer
Don't get me wrong, the jersey movement is incredibly cool looking its just funny that you see the jersey ripple like its in the wind when in fact hockey is played inside closed arenas that have no wind with the lone exception being the NHL Winter Classic game which this was most certainly not part of. Its all good though as the game looks great so far.
To be fair, there is "wind" when you're skating fast.
Back in the 70s their was NHL players who did not where a helmet and they had long hair, so you would see their hair flying in the wind from skating fast! To the developers making NHL 15 . I do not care about the cutscenes and facial expressions . Just keep up what you have been doing last three years which has great game play control mechanics! Love the skill stick and i am happy you are improving on that even more.
Yes and soon we will get FIFA 15 to next gen :) This two titles are the best sport games in the world!!
It'll be interesting to see if they can add dynamic cuts/bruising to the players aftera high stick or fight or something... like, cuts that take days/weeks to heal or guys going off and coming back the next period stitched up, etc.. kinda excited to see what a next gen hockey game could bring to the table...
Realistic instances of drawn blood for a double-minor? ;)
I hope they work on Stick clipping
I wonder how Pierre McGuire feels about not being included in the game.
Too many men on the ice, Jeff.
Hopefully they fix the biggest issue and that being Ice Tilt for club and HuT. So annoying when you dominate the entire game with 35+ shots on on net and their goalie is playing like 2012 playoff Quick. Then mine leaves in a floaty backhander from the top of the circle and it being his 12th shot.
haha yeah that was terrible. It should be like real hockey, momentum swings determined by the teams play.
That happens in real life. I don't know about frequency in the game, because I don't play online. But, in real life, the goalie who hasn't seen many shots sometimes finds himself rusty/not in the game, and lets in a soft one.
Wow. As a lifelong Devils fan it has been my dream to have Doc doing the commentary for EA NHL. That alone is enough to warrant a purchase from me.
I can't wait to hear him say "Lundqvist Waffle-boards it into the corner". Man, I will be in heaven.
Well because of EA's competent level with the NHL series, I can't wait to see these devs out shine the Madden and the NBA Live devs...
about damn time!!! drop the puck baby!!!
New commentary, better player models and likeness, revamped presentation...sign me up. I've been asking for those thing for at least 5 years now.
to Crazay ; judging from your boob picture, I can see why cutscenes are important to you in NHL video game! I am all about the gameplay mechanics! But player models and presentation does make the game more immersive . So no complaints here! By the way nice boob picture! , they look real!!!!
