Was reading up on NHL 2K6 over at Team XBOX and was wondering if the folks here at CG were going to be getting a review copy any time soon to give us the real preview that I desire.

THe teams sure won't look the same as they did last year.  The "offseason" changes have been ginormous.  Unfortunately my Leafs look to be going nowhere but down. frown

One thing Team XBOX did have was some video (however it was real choppy for me) that showed a line of Lemieux, Crosby, Recchi, Gonchar and Tarnstrom....

And come one... what does every Leaf have in common... Every Autumn they Fall!....it is just natures way...

We may get a review copy after the game is out, but I only know of 1 of us that have an Xbox capable of using preview code and I don't think 2K has sent any preview code his way for any game.

There is a "new" video up at Gametrailers that focuses on the role of the Enforcer.  I use the term new loosely, as in I haven't seen it before, but I don't think it's really new.

Do we know a release date for sure yet?

Everytime I see Lockdown's avatar I immediately picture the main character from the PC game - Planescape Torment.  If you look quickly it looks just like him.

However, I now realize it's some hot girl and would like to know who is it!

Kate Beckinsale from "Underworld."

As for the game, I'm still not curious in a sports game unless it's got "Blitz" in the title, though I'm really, really, curious about the Midway game from the writers of "Playmakers." But I'm not a sports gamer.

I don't think Blitz: The League is written by the "Playmakers" people anymore.  They dropped the Playmakers title from it as soon as EA got the ESPN license...I'm not sure the writer is working on it anymore honestly.

IIRC, they are going to be using a similar script, but changing the team and player names since they can't use the "Playmakers" name and license.  It does look well done from what we saw at the pre-E3 Midway party.

My friend, let me introduce you to a larger 'picture' of my definition of beauty :




And a fun fact about her.... She will soon turn 33 years of age.  Amazing.

Devil - Yes she does.   :shock:

KSD - I was aware it was being made... I was not aware it was in post production.  I am mildly excited about this.    biggrin

I agree LD - picture of beauty!

The 3rd from the left and last picture are my favorites.  Now I have to see Underword.  I'm going to pick it up on DVD.

Whenever a thread can be semi-derailed into a conversation about Kate Beckinsale, I somehow feel like I have accomplished something positive for all mankind on that day.

Happy I could be of service my friends.

Now, back to my original thought about 10 posts up...

(and we can do without the smartass comments, Boston Boobhead)

Did anyone see the hits that the Enforcer can lay down in that video?

Thoughts on this?

Also, in those videos, something looks slightly different about the camera angle.  I like it alot.  Then again, perhaps it's exactly the same as last years, and I am just not seeing it.

thread effectively re-railed

My thoughts on NHL anything: Hockey needs to stay in Canada and Europe. But I must applaud you fans of of the game, and your sticktooitiveness.

Didn't see the clip but I did laugh out loud at "Boston Boobhead"  biggrin

I don't think there was any enforcer thing in past games though.
