Looks like WAAAAY too many hipchecks.. I can see everyone on EASHL now rolling around like a bowling ball

Wish they would of just shown 30 seconds of continuous gameplay. Looks cool though.

Excellent point. They're simply pointing out a single aspect that they want to show off.
I doubt this will be the case in the real game.

It's not like they are going to show 20 seconds of cycling on a powerplay for a trailer. of course it has big checks.

Thanks for posting this NBA.

Oh man...the face-offs look so much better. Quite a bit better than the puck simply sliding to one player or the other, as in '10'.

Even the linesman moving outta the way looks way better. Great to see some videos starting to come in.

Definite improvements over NHL 10. Looks good.

This is just a personal opinion and nothing more, but I don't understand why checking is the first 'real-time physics based' aspect that is being introduced into the NHL series. Yes, the splattering hits and ***-over-teakettle hip checks look cool, but really, how often do you see hits like this in real life? Once every other game?

For the life of me, I can't figure out why they haven't chosen to work on a physics-based approach to the bread-and-butter of real hockey, that being the skating. From what I can tell based on these early vids, it still looks like the same goofy skating system. No momentum, no weight, unrealistic agility, etc.

Not to jump on this game so early, I know these fluff trailers are hardly indicative of the final product. I'm just beginning to get concerned that this game might be starting to plateau a bit from a realism standpoint.

Exactly my beef, fix the skating FIRST then everything else should fall into place.

I hope I'm wrong in saying this, but why do I feel like they're going to plug a few holes in this game only to open up a few others... As has been noted here above, I hope the hip-checks are not played up so much in the release. But something tells me a patch on that will be forthcoming...

Nice, can't wait to see more

Same here. I think its more going to be along the lines of a "rock,paper,scissors" where stick tie up may beat a regular draw back to the point, etc etc.

I don't think we will have full control of our stick, like we are used to in the 2K series...

We have no choice but to be pumped for this. It is our only choice.

I hope the next videos have some CHL teams in it.

Me too...my life is a mad dash for the grave.

Your weeks go faster than your weekends???

You sure about that?

Remember this is year 1 of a 3 year plan to get the game on FULL Physics I think Skating will be a big thing for NHL12

The face-offs look great. Can't wait to see more gameplay footage.
