I agree with the slider ideas... The game looks customizable as ever!

Please VERIFY if there is a true BROADCAST camera - i.e., one like the replay angles - but you can PLAY with it!

Thanks,

Suspense is killing me!

P.S. Heatly to the Sens... man they look good!

OTTAWA vs. EDMONTON!!

Well, these are the sliders I'm using to great effect up 'till now (with obvious changes for 2K6):

Control Settings

Controller: Advanced
Goalie Control: Semi-Manual
Pass Aim Assist: 1
Shot Aim: Manual
Auto Puck in air grab: On
Puck Protect: Manual
One-timer Passing: On

One thing I did notice though was that the default skating speed seems a bit slower in 2K6 than in 2K5. If it's too slow at SPEED ONE, bump it up to 2. Also, if you can make sure that FIGHTING is set to FIGHTERS ONLY, that would be great!

And if it's not too much to ask, can you turn off the MOMENTUM METER thing?

Looking forward to another great Video, Steve!

P.S.:

If you're still having problems with the inputs lagging because of the recording equipment, just let the CPU play against itself.

Steve,

Was the pinning slider maxed before? If not, could you max it out for the next vid? I'm interested to see how much additional board play/pinning it adds to the game.

Thanks!

Thanks Steve - please keep the movies coming - I've been waiting months for this. Its everything I wanted to see in a Top Shelf Tuesday but never got too...

A few things I'd like to see please:

- after an interesting goal please use the user controlled replay to show off what that is like, especially zoomed in so we can get a feel for the puck physics

- I thought the game looked very good with these sliders, although for my tastes the passing and player movement seemed a bit sluggish. Would like to see the speed bumped up a bit in those departments.

- Perhaps you can try and get some icon / pro control passing going, and/or call some coaching strategies like Crash Net etc.

- MOST IMPORTANTLY I'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR IMPRESSIONS ON THE GAME, including whether you think its the best in the 2k series yet (certainly looks that way), what you think of the graphics and fun-factor, and just how much better you like it than NHL 2006 (seems obvious in the videos there is no contest between the two games). Thanks!

When you've got some free time give Venom's sliders a go.

Seeing as how the game does not have any type of "annalog" passing, meaning that passes don't go slower or faster depending on which player you're controlling or how long you press the pass button, then a compromise has to be reached. Not all passes in the NHL are 100 Mph like it is with the default pass settings. Also, for the player "sluggishness" you have to factor in that there were ALOT of special teams play (PP and PK) in the last video and that will bring a line's stamina down more quickly.

What I've always tried to recreate with my sliders was that players should be very tired by the end of the period (hence why the recovery is so low). The trick is not to jam on the SPEED BURST all the time and only use it when you're trying to get around a player or on a breakaway, or of course, when you're trying to beat the CPU player to a loose puck.

NHL Hockey is a fast sport, but generally, this is how it goes:

- Shots are faster than passes
- Passes are faster than Skating

Something that many people don't realise is that you will get from one end of the rink to the other alot faster by passing/dumping the puck than by carrying it with one lone player, and if you do the latter, then it should take you a good 10-12 real time seconds to get from one end to the other.

Though I agree that the game seems slower this year than in 2K5, which is why I suggested that if he found it a bit slow at 1 click, he could try with 2 clicks SPEED which I believe would be the limit to get real NHL speeds recreated in the videogame as anything above 3 clicks makes the game too arcadey.
