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..

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth problem with such platforms is they will only work with software where they can extract motion data, and having no standards there, they have build support for each individual game. (39 minutes ago)

  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What I want to know is, what if the game glitches? (59 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's a strange thing. I reckon being tossed around physically like that would help with certain sims, though. If not, yeah, you're projectile vomiting all over the gaff. LOL that would be hilarious. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @MrWhite: I mean, part of the problem I've experienced is when you move without moving. I can feel my head go "Whoa! What's going on here?! I didn't send the signal to move!" (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Locomotion. Wouldn't that help making your mind believe what its seeing a bit more for motion sickness? (1 Hour ago)

    rayy @alimokrane: Sometimes I think you care more about the viewpoint than if the game is fun lol. (1 Hour ago)
