Looks weird. Realistic textures and models but with such f**ed up proportions...it just looks strange. It's kind of like looking at one of those "real *insert character here*" pictures, you know with homer and mario.

Err, it's kinda creepy :/

They should have added cartoon effects.....And yeah Megido I know what you mean, and those 'real homer', 'real mario' etc pics are freaky in the same way.

The name NHL Jam would suit this title just fine.

If they get the feel the same as NHL09 I know I'm sold, this could be wicked (or **** if they mess it up!)

But if you can use 09 controls thats a good start!!

You mean NHL Hitz which used to be a pretty fun game to play with friends and I believed that it did also have the big head code in it..

    GriftGFX Overwatch is more responsible for cementing its fate as an industry-wide trend. No doubt. (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And it's a dang good game too. (8 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX All I said was that DB deserves more credit for arriving at this trend early. DirtyBomb is the first game I can think of that is anything like DirtyBomb. (9 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't think they play like Monday Night Combat either. (12 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I agree that OW or Dirtybomb or wahtever certainly don't play like a moba though. (14 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Yeah it's ofc a lot different, which is why it's spawned it's own little genre. (20 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: It plays like WC3 witha single hero unit ;) (21 minutes ago)
