Looks Like Real Hockey: NHL13

July 24, 2012

Thanks to EvAv for the heads-up.

This is mostly for rED and Grymm, but the gameplay featured looks good enough to please anyone who likes hockey, or even just sports in general.  I am seriously considering how I might somehow wrangle a console and some NBA games for the basketball team here.  I haven’t tried NBA Live 13 or NBK2K13 but sports games are getting sophisticated enough, especially with dropping canned animations, that the simulation should actually have potential for training.  Hmmm…

Getting back to hockey, allow me to take this opportunity and put a shout out for the movie Miracle, starring Kurt Russel.  If you haven’t seen it yet, treat yourself.  It is a great show based on the true story of the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics USA Hockey Team, the team that beat the Russians.  Interesting that those born after the ’80s have no understanding of how the Cold War felt.  Reading about it can never convey the dread or paranoia, and just winning a hockey game felt like a huge victory for a freer way of life.  Anyway, here is a list of hockey movies for those who want to watch more than just one.  The trailer for Miracle is embedded after the jump.
