Re: NHL 12 Video - Loose Puck on Slapshots

Pros -
Hopefully this means less figure skating from forwards, although I doubt this feature translates into normal puck possession.

No longer will a 99 Slap Shot power player just wind up and hold there in the slot, immune to stick lifts, and rifle one top shelf.


Cons -
Will make it harder for a defenseman to get a shot off than it already is, meaning forwards will be even less likely to send the puck to the point (if that's even possible considering it's already nonexistent).

I foresee lag issues, a player without a picture perfect connection online not being able to take a slap shot because the puck slides away before the server recognizes the user pushed up on the stick.


Overall I think it's a good thing but it seems like a half-assed fix for collision detection and will probably have some unintended consequences. If collision detection in this game worked and the puck/sticks didn't clip through skates/sticks/legs/arms//boards/the ice/goalie pads/pretty much everything that could be hit, it would make for a much more loose and unpredictable game and figure skating forwards would be wiped out completely. Real collision detection.....sigh.....a man can dream cant he?

This.

No question we'd have a hugely different playing game if this was the case.

My excitement level for the coming game would go up ten fold if this was...."The big announcement". Yep Cup4blues...I've kinda dreamed of this very thing too. Hopefully, we don't have to wait till the next gen to see this.

That's a nice addition to the game.

And as for the collisions, my friend told me he had heard, that in NHL 13, they would have the full collisions, meaning none of those things that cup4blues mentioned, would not happen. But I don't know where my friend heard this, or did he invent all this. I guess time will tell.

He's probably referring to the developers stating in the past that NHL is in the middle of a 3 year cycle with the new physics engine. Next year, I'm sure will be the pinnacle of it. But **** next year. This one isn't even out yet.

Regarding the video, skating looks improved and I like the puck being loose. Looked great to me.

Looked pretty fluid. The skating does look nice and I think it's a welcomed addition along as it's not creating issues with the gameplay

That would be cool to have that but I think that all the additional calculations that would add to the game would be too much for current gen hardware. I really expect a lot out of this game when the next gen consoles come out. They could do it on the PC now if they wanted but EA Sports gave up on us PC games long ago. When you look at how awesome BF3 is looking on the PC with DX11 and Frostbite 2's full physics engine it makes you wonder was a NHL game would look like on a top end PC. Remembering the days when NHL 97 and 98 on the PC looked light years ahead of the same years console versions..... Oh well one can dream.
