    News from Gamescom in Germany has the NHL 13 demo being released next Tuesday (August 21). That's 3 weeks before release, following last year's schedule.


    Can't wait!

    Fifa went from a must buy to a non buy for me. since it didnt add any online league stuff. PES 13 for me this year for offline play.

    to each their own, but offline to this soccer newb PES plays a much better game on the pitch.

    played the demo a handful of times the other night and i dig it... my usual go-to goals in previous editions were all thwarted by the REALLY active goalies... the pucks get deflected or tipped in the passing lanes, which is good... it makes it harder to make those super long stretch passes, but sooo rewarding when you do you connect. the fast guys feel fast and the slow guys feel slow, which means you can cycle the puck and get some offense going, instead of just doing the end-to-end rushes.

    i tried playing with the true broadcast camera, but even after switching my controls to 'always up', i couldn't pass worth shit or get anything going. i'll stick with my classic camera angle for now, but will maybe play an offline season with the TB camera to see if it gets better.

    what have you guys thought of the demo?

    Just got it downloaded. Looking to jump in tonight and will have some feedback. Interesting what Fiddy14 says about FIFA. I was thinking the same thing. Plus it's unrealistic to think I can do ncaa, madden, nhl and fifa leagues!
