NHL 09 demo will be out later today for playstation 3 and xbox isnt gonna be out til september. pisses me off!!!
Yeah I've heard that 2K9 leaves much to be desired judging from the demo. How they could take a good game and ruin it is beyond me. As I said, fighting is important to me, but not the end all, be all.

Looks like it'll be NHL 09 for me this year.

yea ive played the 2k8 and 2k9 demos now and it looks like 2k took a huge step backwards with the gameplay. if i went by the demos i prob would of given the edge to NHL 2k8 over NHL 08.

looks like they put more into the intros than the actual gameplay. oh well, at least ill save the 7-8 bucks for not renting NHL 2k9 this year.

btw, if any1 is interested in doing the EASHL, let me know im in a team and we are looking to fill up the roster. were not actually first ballot (def the odds on favorite to win it) but i think we will be right up there.

Demo dropped for XBOX this morning.

This game is awesome, u can play 1 period with either the Pens or the Red Wings in regular play now mode or u can do Be A Pro as either Zetterberg or Crosby. ive done it twice as Crosby and ive gotten A+ for position play and A+ for Team Play both times, but an F for Stats i still havent scored which is why i play defense when i play usually.

FYI X-Terminator, the fighting in NHL 09 is HORRIBLE!!! the fight doesnt last for more than 5-6 punches total (3 punches max usually does it but u can knock some1 out in 1)

i havent tried 2k9 fighting yet but they said they have a whole new fighting engine, so im not sure

any1 else picked it up yet?

gotta say it is probably gonna sweep all sport game of the year awards, and jus may make a run at game of the year.

Be A Pro mode is an unbelievable addition to a hockey game, something ive been waiting for since madden came out with the superstar mode. im a defenseman for the Capitals (im really impatient and it would of taken me forever to make it to the NHL with the Pens with them having 8 D-man on their NHL roster so i went with a team i didnt mind and that was weak at the point)

the EA Sports Hockey is what i spend most of my time online doing. you put a team together with a bunch of your friends online and then you play other teams online, with your Be A Pro player, and compete for the EASHL cup (dont know what the prize is gonna be but every rumor ive heard it sounds great). My team is ranked 7th in division 1 (the top division), so basically we are the 7th best team in the world

I downloaded the demo for NHL 09 this week and I cant stop playing it... I think this game may replace my addiction to Madden.. which 09 just sucks

yea, if u think the demo was addicting your gonna develop the same problem i got when u get the actual game. there are so many different things u can do in NHL 09. Be A Pro offline/online (my offline i play goalie jus for practice in case im needed to play goalie online), dynasty, the EASHL.

i cant get enough of this dam game
