Tim Hortons signs at Staples???
I'm sure that was just EA showing they have them as a sponsor.
Woo hoo. Timmies is coming to LA! Not that it'll matter for me
The skating looks completely different, the puckhandling is still full of ****.
Just picked up FIFA 12 and let me say, my fears are now confirmed, NHL 12 is indeed a sub par game. Well, its fun, and has many redeeming qualities, but after playing FIFA I realized the makers of FIFA actually know the ins and outs of football, its such a deep game. The makers of NHL 12 on the other hand, well its just so easy to see that their understanding of the sport is limited. The presentation is also a **** show, and the GM mode is about as deep as a blow up kiddy pool. Until they add a whole new level of presentation before, during, and after games, greatly improve the scouting system (aka copy fifa), add increased depth and control in the GM mode, and update the goalies and STILL wonky physics I will not be purchasing another NHL. Such a good base game, but the details are all missing, and continue to be ignored year after year while they seem to make arbitrary updates like a whole new hitting system or skating system. Just frustrating...
Here is the pre-order bonuses from retailers:
GameStop/EB Games: Players will receive 1 Gold Hockey Ultimate Team (HUT) pack per week for 16 weeks (September – December 2012).
Best Buy/Future Shop: Players will receive in-game Reebok 20K package. The package includes in-game gloves, stick, skates and a boost to enhance a Be a Pro and EASHL player.
Amazon.com/Amazon.ca: Players will receive in-game BAUER gloves, stick, skates and boost to enhance a Be a Pro and EASHL player.
Origin: Receive in-game Goalie boost to enhance a Be a Pro and EASHL goalie.
Guess its Best Buy for me. I'd probably rather have the Bauer stuff, but I don't want to hassle with worrying about Amazon delivering it on release day (Mel knows this all too well).
Different prizes for different retailers, that's interesting.
why oh why does the goalie play the puck 1000x worse than Quick?
