NHL 15 Gameplay Videos Impressions

nhl15-nyr-lak-cele1-wm

EA Sports and EA Vancouver finally, at long last, have shown the masses what their next-gen hockey experience will be like with two gameplay videos for NHL 15. They’ve left little to the imagination, as the videos display the game’s new presentation, authentic arenas, crowds, graphics, commentary, collision physics, equipment layers, puck physics and more.

Being a huge proponent of both hockey and video games — and having watched the videos several times over — I decided to analyze all the changes that will be coming in NHL 15. If you haven’t seen the videos, I’ve embedded them at the bottom of this post.

WWE.com — Hulk Hogan opens up about Randy Savage, The Mega Powers and why WrestleMania V means so much to him

“In the late 1980s, Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage formed one of the most powerful partnerships in sports-entertainment history. With the lovely Miss Elizabeth by their side, The Powers battled WWE’s baddies over the course of an entire year. But when the jealous Savage became overly protective of Elizabeth, it drove a wedge between the two competitors that resulted in The Mega Powers “exploding” in an emotional main event at WrestleMania V.

Twenty-five years have passed since that legendary battle. And to honor the occasion, WWE.com spoke with “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan, who let his guard down to reveal behind-the-scenes details about The Mega Powers, how the two biggest stars of the wrestling’s boom period reconciled decades later and why he still misses his old friend.”

Co-Op Node PlayStation 4 Special

This past Friday, I hosted a seven-hour long livestream focused on the brand-new PlayStation 4 as a special edition of GamerNode’s Co-Op Node, which I regularly host every Tuesday night from 7-10 PM EST. During this stream, I played some Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Resogun, and FIFA 14 in addition to showing off the console’s interface and software.

Following the stream, I made sure to archive this first of what will surely be several PlayStation 4-centered episodes of Co-Op Node. You can find it, split into two parts, through the links below.

Enjoy!

Part 1 (Hours 1-5)

Part 2 (Hours 5-7)

Finally, NHL 14 Makes Fighting in the Series Feel Real

This week I was able to get my hands on the NHL 14 demo, which didn’t offer a ton of content but gave a brief glimpse at some of the new features coming to this year’s installment of the long-running franchise. Of these features, one surprised me and fixed what I found to be one of the most boring and unauthentic parts of the entire game: Fighting.
