NHL 10 News Post

EA has just posted another NHL 10 blog. This one talks about boardplay.

Quote:
"Let me start by saying that boardplay is something that I’ve wanted to see in our game for a long time but the timing just wasn’t right. I remember when we sat down in pre-production for NHL 09, boardplay was on the list of features that we wanted to implement but by the end of prepro, there were just too many other fundamental pieces of hockey that we had to implement first….like a way to defend!"

Thank you. More footage would've been nice, but hey, at least we're getting a nice stream of info...

Does this mean that it's now possible to have two players tackle one player at the same time? Or is this some other animations he is talking about?

Good to see this info coming out. I think that people may "overuse" it. Still, really looking forward to it.

Yeah. And I love the news from Chase and others how the puck physics have improved.
Both of those should mean the game is going to be more organic.

Man, I can barely wait to try this badboy out.

RealmK, I know our CS team really didn't get off the ground all the much, but we should try to form another team with those guys or others. I'm dying to get back into EASHL play.

Of course, all the goals scored because I jumped in the play from the blueline are not my fault. The goalie should know I'm going to do that.

The fact that they have removed all two player animations is very exciting for me. This could do wonders for the weight and physics of NHL.

I wish EA's football games would remove all the two player animations.
