Hopefully I'm getting NHL 11 one week before it comes out like I did NCAA. That would be awesome... :w00t:


i start a part-time, 2nd job at a game store next week, so if i somehow by a slim freaking miracle get an advanced copy, i'll let everyone know.

You don't get drunk with your friends two nights before and spend 130 bucks on a life-sized replica football helmet of a college you don't pay attention to, leaving your pockets empty until a week later when you get your paycheck, which is already a week after all of your other friends got the game and played it and told you how awesome it was?

That was all hypothetical. Promise.

(Who the hell cares about Boise State football, for christ's sake?)


Well in that case, I will definitely NOT be pre-ordering.

Who doesn't love a drunken adventure? :lol:

The only preorder incentive I've heard so far us that Gamestop will give you Bauer boost items (stick gloves and skates) if you preorder.

Same for PS3 except in PS3 colors.

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

This seems like a pretty neat idea. I'm thinking it might get old after a little while...but I'm definitely looking forward to trying this mode out. Especially if the 'rare' cards are some of the all-time greats. That'd be pretty sick

Demo is set for release on the 17th, but nothing was leaked yet on what is going to be on the demo. I'm assuming a battle for the cup between the Hawks and Flyers and maybe a Be A Pro where you start in the Juniors.

if it's anything like Madden, you'll have to buy cards with real money to get one of the best teams so it may not be any fun unless you want to shell out more money for an extra mode

Also here's what's in the demo:

Can't wait for the demo. Should be sick.

And, if you're right...forget it. I don't buy add-ons or pour more money into a game than the $60 price tag (which is already steep if you ask me, and my $0 college income)

Don't worry, its not real money. You get EA Pucks for doing stuff in the game and the packs that have better players in them cost more pucks. Pucks are also how you bid on players that are up for auction by other teams.

That sounds better. I re-read what I posted (I misread it the first time because I'm just..awesome like that), and saw that there's that in-game currency. You'll probably be able to pay real $$$ for more cards (just like you could buy better gear for your Be A Pro player), but you'd have to be stupid to do that imo

you can get a lot of cards for free or fake money but to get one of the best Ultimate Teams, like with Madden and FIFA, you're going to have to pay real money unfortunately

NHL 11 demo out today for Xbox and around 5 or 6 today for PS3!!

Who'd you guys get to play on your ultimate team if you've played yet. I got Malkin, Cam Fowler, Gormley, Rask and immortal Hnat Domichelli amongst others. It's really cool I got to play the Windsor Spitfires in my first game and then the Flyers in the second.

And I'm pretty sure I saw Jim Rome in the tutorial video as a head coach :pray:

how is it? I checked PS3 Online this morning but it wasn't available yet so I'll check around 5 or 6 like you mentioned. Is it significantly better than nhl 10?

the hits are a lot better and look awesome. The skating feels more realistic I guess but overall it's a lot like the last one. But this ultimate team is probably the best thing in a sports demo in awhile. I checked and it gives you random jerseys to use (I had the Guelph Storm and 06-07 Red Wings) and players. I had Backstrom and Okposo and Tavares the second time

Edit: the deflections are also ramped up this year about 1000% which is good

I have to work until 5:00 too, but I have PS3 so I guess it wouldn't have mattered anyway. This game has yet to let me down and I'm definitely not expecting it to this year.

Just played the Oilers wet dream: Hall and Seguin on the same line (with Dan Clearly on RW). Kadri on second line. Awesome
