Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

A thread for the Penny Arcade [strike]Red Wangs[/strike] Hotsteppers and Hotsteppers League, the official team and league of the Penny Arcade forums in NHL 10.


Important Unlock Boost Notice
Some of the unlockable equipment and boosts require you to complete a game with every team in a certain league. However, they must be unlocked in a specific order. If you do the leagues in the order below it will be ok, but if you unlock something for a league lower on the list you will not be able to go back and unlock any of the ones above it. So for example if you do the Finnish league unlock first you cannot unlock any of the things for the other leagues except the Swedish.

Czech
AHL
NHL
German
Swiss
Finnish
Swedish

This problem will be fixed in the title update, and when it is fixed all of the unlocks that have been completed will be awarded immediately once a single game using any team has been completed.
per Wikipedia
NHL 10 will be the 19th video game in the NHL series released by EA Sports.

New features

The only information available so far comes from EA Sports' promotional material, which states:

"NHL 10 will introduce over 200 game refinements and will bring the real emotions from fans and a real hockey atmosphere into the game.

First person fighting will be introduced in the game to make the player feel like he's really in an NHL fight. An all-new board physics engine will let the players battle for pucks on the boards letting the player shield, kick the puck, pin opponents to the glass, all while the fans bang on the glass just like in real life. Player fatigue will have players bobble passes and avoid collisions under threat of constant physical pressure. Momentum will enter the game like never before. Players will be able to start scrums after the whistle to draw penalties and to bring the fans even more into the game for that extra push of momentum needed to win. New scoring techniques will be entering the game such as scoring from your knees and hitting the puck from mid air. Players will also be able to pass the puck off the boards.

New fan textures will make the fans look more realistic. Playoff towels will also be in the game."

Producer David Littman also confirmed in his Producer Blog that the PS3 version will now include Customisable Music

    EASHL: Penny Arcade Hotsteppers
    (And OTP)

    Hotstepping: This is where we all are a team. We are the Hotsteppers. Games played here are played in the EASHL (EA Sports Hockey League). Each player plays as their own Be A Pro character and plays a certain position (C, LW, RW, LD, RD, G). If you do not have a full team on the ice, the other spots are controlled by the computer. You can play with a minimum two players. The main thing in this mode is that you must play your position. While you won't get yelled at by us, be courteous and try to play your best. Do not be a puck hog and you will be rewarded. Something you need to know about this mode is that you can't go three games without an opponent trying to use glitch goals. (This was true a few months after NHL 09 came out, so try to play a ton of EASHL in NHL 10 right when it comes out...before all glitch goals are found) You do get the occasional streak of fun games, but they are few and far between. Go ahead and sign up for the team if you are interested. Just hit the "Edit this page" text on the bottom right of the page and let us know on the forums that you signed up.

    Penny Arcade Hotsteppers Team Page


    Roster/Sign ups
    Xbox 360 : Click here
    PS3 :Click here


    Online Team Play (OTP): If you find yourself playing Hotsteppers and people are glitching/not playing real hockey, jump on OTP (Online Team Play) and player lock. I have found OTP to be more enjoyable than EASHL due to the fact that everyone else that plays OTP seems to not try to cheat. You can play just two people in the lobby or you can play six-on-six. Player lock is not required (for unranked games), but highly suggested. Be sure to inform any Hotsteppers if you are jumping on to play OTP. Unranked OTP is basically EASHL, but you don't play as your personal Be A Pro. You play as NHL players (or whichever team you pick). A fun way to play is to play two-on-two and have one player on each team lock as the goalie while the second player on each team plays as the rest of the team (aka not position locked).


    Tips on becoming a better player
    Spoiler:

    NHL 10 Photos: Please feel free to create a photo album on a picture website and throw up any EASHL or League photos. I put mine on Flickr (I believe $20/year for unlimited uploading). Just send me a PM with the link and I will toss it up here.

    He told me he will play tomorrow (well, play against you when he isn't playing UFC Undisputed 2009).

    edit: I am playing a game or two of OTP if anyone wants in.

    I think I am the only person who would replace Tim Thomas with Manny Fernandez while playing as goalie. Fernandez got me to the second round of the Hotstepper Season 2 playoffs. How could I not want to play as him?

    ok mclay finally gave you Simon Gagne for Parise. but really your trade offers are the worst.

    Giroux for Rupp? seriously dude? I wouldn't even let Rupp warm the bench on my team. I'll give you Giroux if you can find someway to get the real Rupp off the Devils.

    how about Riley Cote for John Madden, Spezza, and Heatley?

    I have a mancrush on Giroux. He is rated a 76 and Rupp is a 75. I'm not sure how that is a bad offer. LOL.

    PS I still want Giroux.

    I think it has nothing to do with the ratings when you're talking about a young upstart prospect vs. a career bottom line scrub.

    Their ratings may be close to the same, but the appeal of that trade is incredibly low.

    I would go for the deal were he even a decent or amusing goon. Can you resurrect Probert for me? I'll only take him if you also trade me the cocaine to make him useful.

    I really dislike Rupp, he is slow and has no skills other than fighting and I'd argue he isn't really good at that either.

    make me a deal that isn't lopsided in your favor only and Giroux is yours. Last time I looked though you didn't have anybody on your squad that I'm interested in that wouldn't make the trade too favored on my end though. Rolston for Giroux is fair right? :P

    It seems like we have lost a few people from this thread from previous seasons. Are there any of you that still visit the thread but don't post? I would love for everyone to post in here so we can have enough people for a game of 3-on-3 or 4-on-4 OTP every once in awhile.

    I will be on a bit later tonight to play a few OTP games as goalie yet again. Just informing whoever now so you can debate whether you want to play or not.

    Sorry about that Wiiild. I got sick again over the weekend and ended up being FAR too tired FAR earlier than I expected. I'm watching the finale of 24 right now on my PVR. About half way through. Wow. This whole season went downhill when Juma died after being in the Whitehouse for like, 20 minutes.

    Anyone up for my EAISAWESOME games in like 40 minutes? Or possibly some Online UFC?

    So, I just got this game, and I'm having some serious trouble scoring goals.

    Specifically, what is the counter to my opponent putting 2-3 players in front of the net? They just camp there, and any shot that I hit tends to bounce right off.

    Also, any general tips?

    We lost in the shootout in OTP just now. We had 39 shots in regulation/OT. They had 9. It was 0-0 into OT. Arg.

    Crystal, are you playing Be A Pro or regularly (as the whole team)?
