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!
NHL 10 - Want to join the league? PM Redfield by Thursday.
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.
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.
NHL 10 will be the 19th video game in the NHL series released by EA Sports.
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
