Hockey fans. They also make great console "party games".

Many fans also use this to drive their Fantasy league selections. Too bad EA screwed the pooch on last year's cup prediction (and I couldn't have been happier with the result).

Anyway, just because you don't like sports games doesn't mean they are a bad genre. I'm actually quite impressed with how well EA iterates and adds to these games each year. Roster changes, rule changes, hell, this year one of the teams was moved, requiring a total redesign of the sweaters and arenas that aren't in NHL11. They do an admirable job to catch the unique vibe oand design of the individual rinks, much like the racing games do with tracks. They also improve game mechanics and the graphics engine itself each year. Never regretted the copies of NHL I've bought.

IMO, the biggest fault of NHL12? Not having Tim Thomas on the cover. Sacrilege.

I think you're right, Beamer. As I recall, this venture was handles unther the "EA Partners" program, which, if memory serves, was for just such arrangements.

I think you're missing their point.

They are saying your opinion of Dues Ex gameplay lacks credibility because you haven't even played the game.

Umm....3M x $60 = $180M in sales.

That's hardly a failure by any definition of the word.

And don't even get me started on Origin. It downloads an installer rather than the game files, which is needlessly time consuming and requires additional hard-disk space (not that it's expensive). But it only downloads the base game, so you need to install patches separately. And EA games still require the EA Download Manager, as they haven't integrated the functionality. I mean, it's like we back to 1998 all over again! There's a reason Steam dominates digital distribution and a large part of that is elimination of tedious installers and manual patches.

Boy, it's SO unbelievable how people could have something against shitty Digital River Storefront #328 Origin! Rolleyes

Though I have to say that being required to Alt-Tab out of the game to join a new MP game through your browser+plugin has to absolutely take the trophy for smoothness.

That Ass Creed link isn't right, Blue. Points back here.

Whoops, sorry. It's fixed now.

I'm not sure what "Ass Creed" is, but I wouldn't touch that game under a full moon.

Is third person cover really that much more immersion-breaking than cut-scenes?
Than picking a line of dialogue from a choice of several?
From weird lockpicking/hacking mini-games?


You guys must have a much more delicate sense of immersion than I do. Do you feel less immersed in books when you have to flip pages? And are these games really that immersive, period? Do you really feel like you're Adam Jensen and looking out his eyes, seeing what he sees, thinking what he thinks, smelling what he smells?

Sorry...after reading this all I could think of was some guy in a chair with a book screaming, "WTF?!?!! *ANOTHER* Page?!?!?! I hate these things!"
