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..

    Moonwalker @Sdarts: In a way you can show the difference. I made a few pics today of Forza 7 demo, Recore and Gears 4 and you can definitely see what you're missing out on wirh SDR. (5 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @rayy: Yes, Larian Studios is great. And D:OS2 had a year of Early Access with constant updates based on the community's feedback. Also, something I forgot to mention, there's already many mods for it (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: Yes, HDR is really awesome. But like with VR, it can't be shown in images or videos, you need to check it in person. Try all the games you can, it might give them a "second wind" for you. (3 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker directly compare it to SDR, holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I just checked Ghost Recon beta and Hitman, ooooh my. :) (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (17 Hours ago)
