NHL 08 Review "Making hockey matter again!" Score 95 (1UP)

It looks like EA has put 2k on thin ice this year.

It's been rough going for the sport of hockey in the last few years, and even longer since the videogame version has blown us away. We're talking since NHL '94. But for its part, the outstanding NHL 08" is doing everything it can to make hockey -- real-life or otherwise -- relevant again.

You'll immediately feel why this is an instant contender for sports game of the year after just a few seconds of play.

2k8 5 x better
EA nhl 08 its being hyped up
big time

toughNAME6125d ago

for NHL games, EA's version is consistantly better

not to say its different for other sports games

but 2K's hockey games usually are..garbage

Covenant6125d ago

Improved Madden...

Improved Tiger...

Now this...

Looks like EA isn't trying to "phone it in" this year.

2K8 is almost always better than NBA Live...we'll see what happens.

tomfoolery6125d ago

dumbed down version.
Or else Maiddens Raiders might throw another fit and try to spark
a million-Sony man march on EA.
Please EA.......make them equal so Sonyonly kids can sleep at night.

Yes, that's Kara in season 4 of The Boys

Been watching season 4 of The Boys and find Firecracker's face familiar? As a gamer, where you know her from might surprise you.

I did have one of those "where do I know her from...?" feelings.
It's funny how a different hair style changes a person. I saw some pictures of her with short or blond hair and it made me remember Kara, but making her a redhead AND with long hair, just bugged my brain.
Here's hoping her character survives until the end of the show (even though her character is a horrible person).

No doubt homelander will get pissed and show her his appreciation.

Episode 3 i was expecting a bitch slap death but it never happened he was zoned out then.

Would it not buy the boys still comedy she fight's back with that lame finger snap power he is like bitch really then just takes her out with one hit LOL

The only image from the show in my mind is the multiplying dudes eating each others butts in the sauna

Valorie Curry is her name... not sure why that's not even in the short summary. Why is this gaming news though?

ZeekQuattro1h ago

I couldn't for the life of me remember what I remembered her from and then I saw The Tick in her acting credits. That's why she looked so familiar. I loved that short lived Amazon show.

Underrated? J&D was one of the most popular IPs at the time, quite literally the face of the ps2 beside God of War

Would love to see a open world Jak 4 on the PS5, would be amazing, but I know ND said they'd never do it.

purple10123h ago(Edited 22h ago)

apparently there is a movie being made. I just cant get my head around what Sony is doing recently,

In regards to cancelling twisted metal game, when they push ahead with series 2 of the tv show, surely she show is meant to promote the game, where the real profits can be made.

Now we hear of a Jan and daxter film, (an old ps2 game) but NO new game to go with it,

mind boggles:

Sony Pictures, PlayStation Productions Releases & In Production:

• TV Shows:

-HBO: The Last Of Us Season 1
-Peacock: Twisted Metal Season 1
-HBO: The Last Of Us Season 2 & 3
-Netflix: Horizon
-Peacock: Twisted Metal Season 2
-Amazon Prime: God Of War
-Disney+: Films/TV Shows

I wasn't aware that ND said they'd never do it...

I know they said it would difficult for them to go back to it after doing super high fidelity, gritty, realistic stuff like Last of Us but I didn't think they'd ruled it out completely.

Outside_ofthe_Box4h ago

They didn't say never, but was basically what they said. They actually tried making a new Jak, but what they were making was straying far from it's roots so they canned it. They're just in a different mindset when it comes to developing games compared to when they made Jak.

Jak and dexter is known franchise Sly Cooper was more hidden one tbh.

darthv722h ago

...and he was trying to stay hidden because he was a thievius racoon.

Demetrius16m ago(Edited 15m ago)

Seeing jak&d left in the past like that really makes me appreciate nintendo even more for atleast keeping mario, zelda, metroid, and others around while making em still feel fresh, Playstation should have another gem besides astroboy and ratchet&clank


Space Marine 2 creative director reveals new details about the multiplayer modes and crossplay

From GameWatcher: "Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is looking like one of the most exciting action games coming out this year. Ahead of its September 9 launch, 13 years after the first installment came out, Focus Entertainment and Saber Interactive have unveiled all the multiplayer options that are part of the surprisingly meaty package, and we’ve had a chance to sit down and chat with creative director Oliver Hollis-Leick about it all.

After the original third-person shooter with hack-n-slash elements from Relic Entertainment, Saber is bringing to the project some extensive experience with renowned IPs such as World War Z and Evil Dead. On top of that, Hollis-Leick, whose resume is also filled with major Saber projects, is a famous figure in the cutting-edge realm of motion capture. This adds to his overall vision a special touch we briefly discussed too."
