You can add me too JayDee.  Gamertag:  Starshifter


I'm reading that right?  Is it really you?

Oh... and I want in on the team too, please.

I'm assuming your gamertag is Lockdown? It's telling me that the invite failed. I looked into it and I think you can only be invited once you set up your Be A Pro character and can play online. Let me know once you do so and I'll try again.

The Devils' jerseys?  Ew.

The Flames have the best jerseys in the NHL.

Like I said, I had to pick something otherwise it wouldn't let me create the team. I figured if I picked the Leafs that I would be lynched. We can hold a vote to see what people want.

I have set up our team.

Team Name: GT Dragons

GT = GamingTrend
Dragons = Knightshade Dragon is the founder, so this is in honour of him

We will be using the Devils' (happy Devil?? slywink) jerseys since I can't seem to find out how to make our own. I think we can change it at any time so if people don't like it we can change.

I have invited:

I was not able to invite:

When I tried to invite the two above players it said it could find the gamertags but the invites "failed". I tried multiple times. Are you two already part of a team?

Walkingfumble, Kratz, it says your gamertags don't exist???

I'm not sure I'll know what I'm doing, but I can give it a shot. Apparently I can't play online with my Be A Pro player until I join a team, and my loyalty lies with GT.

Thanks for the review.

Comparing the NHL 09 demo to the NHL 2K9 demo gave me the impression that the gameplay in NHL 09 is superior (IMO). It just feels more like hockey. However, I fully agree with you regarding the atmosphere 2K9 puts into their games. NHL 09 still has the annoying crowd issues, such as the crowd still cheering you on even after you get scored on in overtime. They just don't seem to react in a believable way to the action happening on the ice. Other touches you mentioned like the net coming off its pegs and the ref putting it back are nice touches I would like to see the EA series adopt.

For me gameplay is king, so I'm sticking with NHL 09, but I'm hoping that each franchise can learn from the other to make their own brand of hockey the best it can be. Competition is only good for us fans!

I was in the same situation a year ago. I added up the cost of stuff I would need to upgrade, looked at the 360, and said to hell with it and jumped to the Console world. I haven't looked back except for the occasional WoW session or the upcoming Starcraft 2.

JayDee (or anyone else), can you tell if Drew Doughty, Thomas Hickey, or Colton Teubert (all D) are in the game at all?  Preferably they'd be on the Kings or affiliate roster, but even if they are on some international league, that'd cause me to get the game sooner rather than later.

Does the game have OHL, WHL, or CHL teams?


I'm at work now, but I can can check tonight when I get home. And as far as I can tell, unless they are hidden, there are no OHL/WHL/CHL teams. Only AHL, NHL, and Euro leagues.

EDIT: Although, don't get your hopes up. Luke Schenn (Leafs #1 pick this year) isn't on the AHL roster for the Marlies.

Thanks for sharing. I think the problem is that hockey doesn't really lend itself well to Wii motion controls. It's not like swinging a golf club or bat, or throwing a football.

See you all on the ice.

Thank you for the great write up! You mentioned that the gameplay has slowed a little from last year's version. If you played 2K7 or 2K8, how does it compare to the 2K 360 offerings in that regard? Does this slower pace provide more of a simulation feel and less arcade (the demo was a TAD twitchy in spots for me but that improved a lot when I played on All-Star level)?

Devil and others should remember that I've been in the 2K camp but the robust feature set (namely Be A Pro and the online leagues) have me THIS close to switching this year.

The only experience I have with the 2K versions are the demos so I don't have much experience to compare (I've bought every EA NHL game since 1993, so I'm a bit of a fanboy I guess). From what I've played of the 2k demo, the gameplay of NHL 09 is FAR superior. But I may think this because I'm not used to 2K's style of hockey.

Either way, Be A Pro mode is more than enough reason to switch this year.
1980  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NHL '09 Talk on: September 10, 2008, 04:26:49 AM
Well, I just finished a two hour session with the game so I wanted to provide impressions for those who were not lucky enough to get a copy yet. I'm pretty horrible at expressing myself in writing, but I'll try my best.

The manual is paper thin and describes almost nothing other than basic controls and a general description of what each mode does. This is definitely a game that you will have to learn as you go.

I fired the game up and it immediately takes you to the character creation screen where you can pick your name, jersey number, which hand you shoot, etc. You also have to choose the type of player you want to be such as playmaker, goalscorer, enforcer, etc. This will effect the skills you start off with and the goals you need to achieve in each season (a playmaker needs more assists, a goalscorer needs more goals, etc). This is your in-game "character" (think of NHL 09 as a sports RPG, because essentially that's what it is). After you create the basics of your character you can choose to edit him in much greater detail through the main menu. I created a character with my name and birthdate, modelled after Doug Gilmour (my all-time favourite player). I'm #93 and I was able to tuck the jersey in on one side to look just like him. While the number of options to create the look of your player is limited (only 5 or 6 hairstyles, very basic facial features, etc), you can choose each piece of equipment you want to wear. This includes the flexibility and curve on your stick. These aren't just cosmetic, as a bigger curve will hinder your backhand and slapshot accuracy, but make you a deadly sniper with the wrist shot. There are a number of helmets and gloves to choose from. There is also a long list of names to choose from so that the announcer will say your name instead of your jersey number. My last name is Albert, and the closest option is Alberts, so I picked that. Overall I spent about 10-15 minutes creating my character. There are enough options to make it personal enough, but not too many that it feels like a chore.

Next, I started a new Be A Pro career. There are two options, you can either take your created character and start your career with him, or jump into the shoes of any NHL-er and finish of his career. I chose to use my freshly created character. It doesn't seem to matter what birthdate you put in, as your character starts of listed as Age 19. I picked my starting franchise (Toronto) and was promptly put on the roster for their farm team (AHL's Toronto Marlies). This is where the game really starts to get interesting.

You start off as an amateur, and have to build your skills to become a Rookie, Pro, Veteran, All-Star, and eventually Legend (I think those are the tiers, I'm doing this by memory). You get your own personal hockey card for each level, and a list of accomplishments you need to complete before you can move up. Management sends down a list of goals they want you to achieve in the upcoming season. As a playmaker they would like me to get at least 59 assists, 10 goals and 160 shots. Initially I'm placed on the roster as the third line center. My coach informs me that he will re-evaluate my progress and role on the team after about 5 games. I need to prove myself quickly!

I jumped right into my first game. The opening cutscene starts off with you in the tunnel to the players bench. You can hear the roar of the crowd above you, and as you make your way up the tunnel to ice level the excitement of your first professional game builds. The camera follows right behind you as you step onto the ice and do your warm up laps, as the crowd cheers.

If you've played the demo then the gameplay in the full version is unchanged. One feature that was not in the demo is line changes. When you get tired your indicator flashes and you have to press B when it's safe to make a line change. Your perspective then changes to your view from the bench and you get to watch your teammates play in front of you. Your stamina bar regenerates, and when you are rested you can press B at an appropriate time to call for a line change and jump right back on the ice. While I love the fact that you have to take your shifts like everyone else, there are a couple of things that I think could have been done better. First off, your only camera view is your first-person view from the bench which means you can't really tell what's going on in the offensive zone. It would have been nice to be able to cycle camera views while on the bench. I realize this would ruin the immersion but I can see the novelty of watching portion of the games from the bench wearing off after awhile. Also, line changes are tricky. Pressing B seems to make everyone drop what they're doing and get off the ice immediately. If the puck is in your end I would expect the players on the ice to wait until the puck is cleared over the blueline before making the change. This is not the case, the forwards will immediately head to the bench and leave your defence high and dry. Lastly, since you can call for a line change whenever you want, you will play more often than the other players on your team. This looks like it's going to lead to some inflated Ice Time stats for your character, but I can live with this. The alternative would be to play only 20-30% of your games which would certainly be boring.

After each shift your you get feedback as to your performance so far in the game. The three categories are Positioning, Team Work, and Stats. Positioning is self-explanatory, the more you're out of position, the worse your score. Team Work seems to refer to things like Faceoff winning %, turnovers, offsides, etc. Stats is affected by goals, assists, +/-, shots, etc. From time to time there will be written comments as well, but it seems like they are just selected from 10 pre-made sentences, depending on your performance. If you lose too many faceoffs you will get the message that "you need to improve at faceoffs", etc.

Of course, gameplay is king, and NHL 09 shines brilliantly in this regard. The pace of the game is a little slower than NHL 08, which I find makes the action more realistic. The puck also seems more alive as well, as it doesn't "attach" itself to a player's stick whenever someone gets close. It ricochets off of skates, bounces over sticks, and bounces around in the corner. The skating animation seems to have been improved from last year, which is hard to believe. While creating your player you can take him out for a "test drive" to see how he performs based on the look you gave him and the equipment you're using. I spent a good 5-10 minutes skating around marveling at the skating animations. You have to see it to believe it. The hitting is more realistic in that using the right analog stick no longer sends you hurtling towards your nearest opponent as if a magnet was attached to your shoulder. You really need to line up your hits carefully. Goalie animations have also been improved a little bit.

I'm playing on All-Star mode and I'm enjoying the difficulty. The team is 2-2; we won 3-1 and 2-1, and lost 2-1 and 4-0 (using 5 minute periods). I have 2 goals and 1 assist, with a 0 +/-.

After the game, you get a recap of your performance. You get XP throughout the season that you can spend on different attributes. This is where the game's RPG aspects come out. My player currently can't hit the net to save his life and my deking skills are weak. My teammates in the AHL are horrible, constantly turning the puck over and missing their passes. I'm looking forward to seeing my player's skill improve as I progress.

One neat feature is that you can edit a replay to make your own personal highlight, including your own voice-over using the headset. These highlights can be uploaded to EA's server for others to see. You can also take a screenshot from the replay and crop it to be used on your hockey card. My hockey card features a nice action shot me me doing a cross-over turn at full speed.

I'm sure I'm missing dozens of features I wanted to tell you all about but it's late and I need to get some sleep. If you have any questions, just post them here and I'll answer them the best I can.

After four Be A Pro games, I am getting the impression that this may not be the best hockey game I've ever played, but the best sports video game I've ever played. I'm having so much fun, and with all of the different options and modes I don't see myself getting tired for a long time. I eventually want to create my big stay-at-home bruising D-man, or a butterfly-style goalie. Multiplayer with you guys is going to be an absolute blast.

I can't wait for all of you to get it so you can share your thoughts on the game.

See you all on the ice.

Sorry leo, the 3rd jerseys need to be unlocked via a code that is supposedly posted on the easports/nhl09 website. Of course, since the game is not "officially" out yet (Thursday is the official release date) the code is nowhere to be found on that site. Google has been no help either.

Played two Be A Pro games so far. Amazing, amazing, amazing stuff. I'll post a more detailed review after I play a couple more games.

Got it! There was a lineup at the counter 6 people deep and the shelves behind the counter were lined with dozens and dozens of copies of the game. Not hard to tell what sport is king in this country. slywink

Unfortunately I got home and the wife informed me that we will be eating dinner with the in-laws tonight. Should be back around 9 which gives me 2-3 hours of solid gameplay time before I go to bed.

leo, I'll see if I can take a picture of the jersey and post it for you later this evening.

I walked over to the EB Games close to my work during lunch today and they don't have it yet. I'll call the EB Games I went to last night on the way home to see if they've received.

It's not due out until the 11th here in Vancouver, Canada! Amazing considering it's produced just a few miles from where I live. I wish I could hit up one of my buddies at EA for a freebie or a $20 staff rate, but they're under so much pressure from relatives for this game that I don't even bother trying anymore. Guess I'll have to sit tight until Thursday. I can kind of relate to what Gellar is saying, the current state of our hometown Canucks is so much up in the air I can't even imagine who'll be on the team day 1 in this game.

It's not supposed to be out until the 11th but my EB contact said they are actually shipping today and stores will start putting them out as they receive them. So that could be today, or tomorrow, or even Thursday. He said they were scheduled to receive a shipment today, but it wasn't certain.

I'm desperately trying to wait to buy this until the season starts (because the Kings will be playing a lot of rookies who aren't in the game yet), but I'm super tempted just to get it this week.  SELF.CONTROL.


Whether you get it this week or next month, you'll still be paying the same amount of money. The difference is that you will get to play the game for all of September, and then when the rookies are included, it'll seem like a whole new game to you again and you will want to play it even more when the season starts. I don't see how you can lose.

I was messing with Be A Pro again yesterday, and decided to give the Penguins a try to play as Crosby.

I absolutely hosed the goalie on a sick, sick move.  Took the puck from the right corner behind the net towards the front of the goal.  Just as I got to the middle of the goal, I decide to shoot towards top glove side (which is behind Crosby's back).  Crosby does a quarter turn so his back is facing the goal, and roofs a backhander into the top corner.  NASTY!

I had a moment like this playing as Zetterberg. I was in the corner and passed the puck back to the point. I headed to the slot area and when my d-man fired the puck I happened to be in position so Zetterberg did a between the legs deflection. The puck shot straight up and hit the goalie in the shoulder while he was down in the butterfly and squirted out sideways. I picked up the loose puck, spun around, pulled it back for just a fraction of a second, enough to let Fleury sprawl in front of me, and roofed it, knocking the water bottle off the net.

I find I'm way more impressed when I score "realistic" goals such as deflections, or stuffing in rebounds off a scramble.

I'd definately be in for some more Weezer.  There's a few more from the Red Album that'd be great or plenty to use from the older discs.

I think we have enough Weezer.  The songs are too simplistic and not fun to play.  6 songs is enough. 

I agree.  I'm sure there a hit at parties, but they don't get any of my single-player time.  Too damn boring.

Finally got to play the 360 demo. One period is not enough time to get a full sense of the game, but beggars can't be choosers. First off, I'm forced to play as Detroit since Pittsburgh is the away team and they have inexplicably left out the option so that I can make the away team attack attack up and not down in the demo. I hate playing with the attacking zone at at the bottom.

There are some framerate issues during the cutscenes in between plays and during replays, but these are mostly minor.

The Be A Pro mode looks intriguing. I was sometimes confused as the camera switched directions on me unexpectedly, but overall it was a lot of fun.  The demo is set so there are no line changes so I'm curious as to how this is handled in the full version. I really hope I can watch the game from the bench when it's not my shift as skipping ahead to play only during your shift would ruin the immersion.

Aside from slowing the speed of the game down and adding a lift the stick button, the game play is practically unchanged from last year, which is probably a good thing. I haven't been able to figure out how to do a one-handed deke yet, but I'm sure the manual that comes with the full version will tell me if I don't figure it out in the next week.

Good fun, can't wait for the full game.

Wait RB 2 is coming out this month? I thought it was October 16th?

For the PS3 and Wii.  Sept 15th(I may be off a day or so) for the 360

I'm seeing Sept. 14th, which is cool because it's a Sunday so I can stay home and rock out all day.

One other thing I wanted to comment on, and that's the "Be A Player" mode.

In theory it seems really cool, but after using it, I think it may take a lot to get used to.

When being locked into one player, I was doing a lot of watching and while watching where the puck was, my player was drifting way out of position. It's a bit counter intuitive.

When actually playing real, live hockey and you're watching the play, you know exactly where you are, and should be, on the ice. When it's up on the screen, you need to watch both the play and the player you are controlling. Not as easy.

I know, old friend, Shifty used to play this way, but I'm wondering if anyone else has and how long the transition was to get comfortable?

Any thoughts?

All that being said, it's going to be fun to get a team going with you guys!

I would love to get involved in a GT team this year. I've been playing NHL video games since it was NHLPA '93 and I think I'm ready to make more of an online presence.
