Isn't this supposed to be out today?  Still not available on the PSN store.

Digital release - it's out on the Thursday PSN store update.  If you want the disc version, retail locations should be getting it (like 98% of releases) on Wednesday.  And if you don't know the difference between the two, the only difference is the blu-ray disk has a sort of "making of" video that's supposed to be quite extensive.

Right-o, thanks!

I really don't understand why people insist that the Flames play "dirty" hockey.  Calgary is well known for thier blue-collar, hard hitting, gritty style of play.  They don't have finesse players.  So how that equates to "dirty" hockey, I don't know.  Like Pr0ner mentioned, when was the last time the league sanctioned any Flame player for intent to injure.  That would be like me crapping on Detroit for being a bunch of nancy-boys.  But that just wouldn't be fair.  Detroit plays a much different style of hockey.  Detriot will beat you with speed and finesse, not grinding it out on the boards. 
As I said, or tried to, maybe not as clearly as I would have liked, the stuff during the play does not bother me.  All the crap after the whistle is what makes Calgary a dirty team in my eyes.

You obviously don't watch a wied variety of games then, as most teams in the league do this sort of stuff after the whistle.
Actually I watch almost any game that is on.  I live by Detroit so I see all the Wings games and everything on the CBC so I would say thats a fair amount of hockey.  All teams have players that do it.  Calgary is one of the only teams I can think of that do it to a man.  Other teams have 1 or 2 "aggitators".

Anyway, I don't want to spend this thread hating on other folks teams.  I don't like Calgary.  So what.  Lets move on and talk about the playoffs.  Sorry I lead the thread this way originally just meant to poke at pr0ner for fun.

And I'm sorry I got carried away. smile

I'm still a miserable Sharks fan frown

Hi, everyone! Just wanted to provide an update about the PlayStation Store. The store for both the PS3 and PC will be unavailable starting early morning Monday, April 14 through early morning of Tuesday, April 15. You will not be able to access either store during this maintenance window.

As you know, we are preparing to release the revamped interface of the PlayStation Store for the PS3, which will be available on Tuesday. Regular weekly updates of the store will resume on Thursday, April 17, along with the release of GT5 Prologue.

Thanks for all the positive feedback about the upcoming store design!

Marleau isn't San Jose's best player, though. If I were a San Jose fan, I'd be more concerned why Joe Thornton has (once again) disappeared.

Marleau wears the C, not Thornton.

Yeah I don't get this, Marleau has always been so quiet...why can't we have a leader like Nolan was when he was in SJ....damn you Calgary!!!

I can't find a thread for the original Resistance Impressions, so I will just post here.  I finished the game this weekend and I am glad I listened to you guys and stuck out the bland early levels for the game to get going.  For a launch title, this was a very impressive game.  I really enjoyed the story and Hale was a bad ass without going over-the-top.  I thought there could have been more variety in weapons, but I see that if you replay it now it unlocks more weaps for you to use, which is a neat bonus.

I dabbled a bit in MP this weekend and man was it bad.  I guess I am used to COD4 and all other online shooters just seems so bleh.  Hopefully Resistance 2 will have something more interesting in this dept.

Overall a sweet game, I am really looking forward to the second one now.

Yeah it looks like our playoff exit will happen one round early this year.  I wish that 20 game win streak would have started a little later in the season so we could have won in the playoffs instead.

I wouldn't be writing the Sharks off yet. Notice how I stated in my earlier comment that "it might just turnout to be a fateful loss". There's reasons I used the term "might" and there's factors we shouldn't loose sight of in this series. One of them being that the Flames are coached by someone that's, if it's at all possible, capable of singlehandedly loosing a series for their own team. The Sharks have Nabokov between the pipes who's quite capable of putting on his own impersonation of a brick wall; already has 1 shutout. The Sharks have a helluva lot of talent that's going to be hard to contend with if, and it's a big IF, they click on all cylinders.

Where the Sharks could most be in trouble is that IMO they don't have a leader like Iggy. Marleau has good talent, but I've never been overly impressed with him as a captain. Thornton has heaps of talent and is an outstanding playmaker, but I don't think he's there yet in the leadership department. And when you don't have a captain to lead you usually rely on a veteran who would be - UGHH Roenick!

Man I hope your'e right but playoff hockey in San Jose has become an annual choke-fest.

Oh even the refs work for the Flames it seems.

Oh yeah?  How so?  Because Sarich didn't get a penalty for a totally clean body check?

And you did see the penalty called on the Flames at the start of the game, right?  That's working for the Flames?

No I was talking about the non-offsides call actually.

Err?  I must have missed that.

Yeah it's not a big deal really, I'm just pissy because every time I start watching the Sharks they fall apart.  I can't even go to games because it's auto-lose.

I gotta say though, those Canadian fans know how to do it with wearing the correct color in the playoffs.  The whole crowd is red.

Also the VS announcers are sucking the d**** of the Flames....WTF just broadcast the game fools.
