    New features for NHL 09:


    The Tie Domi effect: going to the penalty box and getting in a fist fight with the guy sitting behind the box.

    The Mike Milbury effect: climbing the glass and beating a fan with their own shoe. In career mode you get to eventually be a crappy coach and after that, work for NBC.

    I hope interference is called more frequently, the gear is updated, and the scoring is cut back, cause 10-5 isn't too realistic. At least they show the players coming out of the locker room though.

    I definitely would like to see more of a pre-game thing. Hell, maybe include a full national anthem and all that stuff... with the player introduction.

    Yes, it'll get old after seeing it 4-5 times (depending on how different they make them), but it still adds to the game.

    But the most basic thing they need is to keep track of how many goals, assists, points a player has when they SCORE. They had this back in NHL 97 I believe... and maybe in another version... then they took it out.

    For example, if Anze scores. Have the little window come up that says:

    Goal: Anze Kopitar (23rd goal of the season)
    Assist: Lubomir Visnovsky (30th of the season)
    Assist: Jack Johnson (15th of the season)

    Something like that. Just that little thing... which they keep leaving out.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    i agree in addition, im hoping for in the near future tey will enhance "career mode" making you the player start off from the OHL,WHL, or QMJHL get ranked accordingly and get drafted by an nhl team then start from minors call me crazy but with hockey games i like to go very deep and detailed into the game

    Update that will make some of you very happy.

    First lets start off with the new skill stick enhancements, aside from the dekes we got to play around with last year, they have added in some new moves, ranging from one handed dekes straight up to legendary moves. Now picture yourself on a break a way, trying to figure out what move to pull off. So you think should I go with the Datsyukian deke, or should I try and pull off what Foresbeg did in the 94" Olympics.
    Now do not be getting to testy with these one on one dekes and legendary moves... Believe me Not everyone can pull them off, you will lose the puck, not to mention you will also lose the puck if it hits their skate or stick...They are now fully interactive!!!!

    So what do you do now, Lets say your opponent has now set up in your zone, after busting in with a sic legendary move. How will you ever defend against it. Oh I know, With your new 360 degree control over your poke check you will be able to take out more of the passing lanes then ever before. But lest say that defencive style is not your cup of tea. You would rather be the dude in front of the net battling away with there top players. You now have a few more options in your arsenal of defencive moves, You could either tie them up, hook them, lift there stick, or get dirty and start pushing them around with some big cross checks till they hit the ground...mmmmm sounds so nice!

    So after they get the shot off and your goalie has made a new desperation save added just this year... now what do you do?
    My guess is you will use your newly created break-out play designed by you to school your opponents. so now you have broken out of your end you are coming down the boards like you have done for years.. till.....

    BOOM... Well getting all fancy doing your dekes you have left yourself vulnerable to the new endorphin punishing body checks, littered with 3-400 animations, But do not expect a hip check so much these hits can range from minor bumps to call an ambulance hits. It's ok though your player will have full awareness now, so he will at least put his arm out to break his fall. So now that you know that your players can be vulnerable, so can there's, so get them back at your first chance.

    So now they are back in your zone, you win the draw, pass it back to your defender.
    You skate out behind your net wait for your team to set up in position... but wait they are rushing you from both ends... so you hesitate, so you slide to the side and go to dump it out of your zone... shoot you put it over the glass. coach it a little mad now your down a man.
    You go to take the next face off, they win, here's your opportunity, you can lift his stick and get a break a way.. oh no you missed and high sticked him.. now the coach is steamed, you now are on a 5 on 3 but got a major for smoking the other guy in the face.

    So for the next 5 minutes you have killed off both penalties, thanks to you stick lifts taking away the one timers, and your blocks taking away the passing lanes. It's nice to see even the CPU on your team, doing all the same stuff you are eh!
    In the end you have won the game thanks to your newly added aggressive defence, and intelligence training made by experts specifically for AI for your team and players.


    Now for some core improvements

    - Game play quality

    - online innovation

    - Globalization

    - skill stick

    - legendary moves

    - create break outs

    - fore checking strategies

    - create a play online

    - aggressive defence

    - new player collision

    - intelligence training

    - Separate line changes for forwards and d-men
    -retro jerseys in the game (Seals, North Stars, etc)





    Globalization

    By this I mean, the great team at EA have added some new things to the European side of the game.

    - Russian elite league

    - German elite league

    - Czech elite league

    - Swedish tournament structure.

    Nice don't you think!!


    Oh what the heck I'll give you some more innovations

    - Interactive tutorial

    - on the fly feedback

    - NHL 94 controls

    - improved fighting

    - improved entrances

    - hockey card

    - 3 stars shown on the ice

    - new replays and announcers calling you out on good/bad plays


    Now lets get into the game modes, I will give you all the key info on these features, but will leave quite a bit in the dark for you to discover on your own.

    Lets start off with one of the biggest additions this year!


    BE A PRO MODE

    In this mode you will take yourself into one of the deepest be a pro mode/ superstar modes ever created!

    You will of course be played by you, once drafted/ placed on your team. You will not be in the NHL just yet. You will start off with your teams affiliate in the AHL on the 3rd line. The entire time you will be in a 3rd player camera mode. This mode will teach you how to be in position at all times, as you will be graded well you play, along with some handy arrows telling you where to be.
    As you play and get better you big league club will take notice, but if you do not play well they will not. Now lets say you are playing right wing, you were not in position, and it created a turn over... I hope you enjoy watching the game from the bench till you can convince your coach you won't do it again. This will all happen in the bench camera mode. Now lets say you are playing phenomenal in the AHL, and the big club decides to call you up, but you do not perform in the big league's at all, they will send you back down. But what if you were huge and performed at your full potential and exceeded all expectations. You have now moved up to the 2nd line, Now the trade deadline has come around, but the Blackhawks are interested in you. Oh ya they will trade you if the trade is right.
    Well going through your career you will be graded on everything you do, so be in position at all times, you will be given feedback from your coach after all shifts, when you are not playing you will get to watch the game from the bench.
    If you are starting your Be a pro as a goalie you will be set as the starter in the AHL. with all the same goals and expectations as a forward or a defenseman.
    The goal of this mode of course is to get into the Hall of fame.


    Oh here are more innovations

    - Names for all players are in and said. including rookies.

    - Uploads to easportsworld.com

    - custom soundtracks

    - Take screen shots and add them to your hockey card

    - Penalties

    These are new...There may be more to.
    Delay of Game: If you play the puck over the glass: 2 minutes
    High Sticking: If you high stick your opponent and hurt him: 4 minutes
    High Sticking: If you high stick your opponent and really hurt him: 5 minutes major



    Now lets talk a wee bit about these Custom soundtracks!
    With this new feature you will be able to add a song for all defining moments.
    weather it be your teams opening song, or your own personal players song for when you score a goal.
    Or when your team scores, in between periods, etc.
    Did I mention this is for both home and away... Man that's a lot of songs
    ...............Sweet!!!!


    As for the uploads to easportsworld for those of you who play Tiger woods, madden, or fifa, this is not new to you. But for everyone else it is. This is a place for you to upload your screenshots, videos of amazing plays you have done in the game, create a profile now before the game even comes out so you can start uploading right away.

    Next

    Online Mode:
    This year's online mode tops every other sports game out on the market! We now have the possibility to play 6 VS 6, and all the players can be controlled by someone. The producers put all their efforts into bringing this game to a new generation of online gaming experience! Last year's was great, but it’ s nothing compared to NHL 09.

    Online Team Play:
    So I just mentioned the new ability to play 6 VS 6, but I’m happy to say that it doesn’t stop there! Our leagues will now offer full statistics on players, whether they are yours or your opponents!


    That's right now you can play 6 on 6, with 12 different consoles. Mmm this is a much needed feature, gives everyone a chance to play where they love to play.

    Leagues included this year

    National Hockey League
    American Hockey League
    International Teams.
    Russian Elite
    German Elite
    Swedish Tournament
    Finnish Tournament
    Czech Elite


    OK one more innovation before I close this blog

    - If a player scores a goal, you'll see a message appear under him: 1st goal of the season. A lot of gamers wanted this feature and we are thrilled to announce that it will be included in this new version.
