NHL14 details being released

shortly after being named America's worst company two years in a row...

Honestly, I think the only reason they're considered a bad company is because they charge money for everything

Their NHL development team hardly improves anything from year to year either. They seemed to be much more productive under a different producer:

Here's their NHL 2003 behind-the-scenes feature:

NHL 2004 was deemed the pinnacle of the last generation of hockey video games. It took several years for the new dev team to reintroduce many of these features into their current generation editions:

More injuries!

Longer load times!

No roster is ever correct!

I really do hope they fix this physics engineering skating thing... I've seen Zdeno Chara catch up to me from my own blue line when he was flat footed against Mason Raymond.. Mason fricken Raymond.. The fastest guy in the league and Chara catches up..

I hate that computers can push you and knock you flat on your butt in front of the net when you're battling for position, but when you give them a slight push, that's called interference. I hate that whenever a defender is in front of the net and I'm trying to get the puck behind the net, I get automatically glued to the defender and I can't get out until after a couple seconds.. I hate that computer AI can just push me slightly when I blow past them for a breakaway and I get knocked down on the ice as if I was hit head on instead of getting slightly off balance and continue skating.

There's just too many things flawed with the computer AI that it's just tough to play. I have no problem with it except for the things mentioned above but they need to fix a lot of things..

And I really hope EA takes note of NBA 2k13's Be a Pro.. NBA 2K13's Be a Pro is amazing and NHL's Be a Pro is just a joke because honestly you can't really control how your player is viewed by your peers except for producing stats on the ice.

I think it's about time they replace parts of the development team. The product has worsened each year. Load times, bugs, glitches. I'm not entirely thrilled about this year's release. There needs to be some accountability. This team has had its run. NHL 06 was labeled as a fresh start after the problems they faced with NHL 2005. It's about time they rethink their philosophy.

Any front runners for the cover?

I think there could be a good chance its Crosby.

13 was the worst NHL game in recent memory, my club team basically dissolved after 4 years of playing together almost nightly due to the fact that we all hate this game.

Didnt buy NHL 13 for the first time since 05 (well skipped 06 however)

If this two year gap isnt enough to get me to buy, well... I'm not surprised. I'm fine without you EA.

I hope they put Ballard on the cover. Let's hope it's not another money grab, i'll be a bit hesitant to purchase it as the new Xbox is releasing in November. So likely they will prb just release nhl 13 with the 14 title

That sounds pretty realistic to me. Mason Raymond would have tripped twice on the way down the Ice, so EA is taking that into account.
