If you're a male in your 30s or 40s, NHL94 was the greatest thing in the history of the world growing up. It had such an impact on my generation it was given a major role in a movie just as impactful....
Now, Sean Leahy at Puck Daddy informs as that when NHL 14 hits shelves on Sept. 10, the game will include a modernized version of the cult classic NHL 94, with current rosters and updated graphics.
Here's a look...
Don't know about you guys, but I'm officially out of my mind pumped. And with that, I give you your "open thread"for the day.
If you're not a gamer, then talk to me about your vacation plans this summer or who you think the Rangers can get back in a trade for Michael Del Zotto.
Get at it.
Why do you have to be a male to enjoy NHL 94? I've been a female hockey fan lbefore '94 & was proud of my NY Rangers being Stanley Cup Champions! #GirlHockeyFansRule!
Why did you have to be a male to enjoy NHL 94? I've been a female hockey fanatic for years before '94 & was just as proud of our NY Rangers being Stanley Cup champs!
I remember this game was awesome....but was it 94 or 93? where the Blackhawks were freakin awesome....along with Detroit.
NHL '94 was what pushed me over the edge to spend my hard-earned money on a Sega system. I was 29... my then-girlfriend (now my wife) thought I was nuts.
Guess who I just sent this link to?
(I still have them all, by the way - system, game, and wife)
Amazing, I cant wait! I wonder if you can still do the cheap goal where you dip behind goalie in the corner and cut across the front of the net. Worked every time, but it was always frowned upon lol.
94 was an awesome year. i was 9 years old and had just started playing hockey. My team won the championship. I played D and wore #23. I played as tough as a 9 year old could. My season ends, the rangers march to the cup and the greatest hockey ever made never left my sega. I was officially hockey obsessed for the rest of my life!!
A new option on defense may have just entered the picture for the Rangers: http://www.nyrangersblog.com/2013-articles/july/metta-world-peace-wants-to-be-a-ranger.html
No online component for the classic mode, offline multiplayer only. Going to take some convincing to get my wife to okay a bunch of grown men in the living room passing around a controller, screaming yelling and fighting. I also think I'm beyond my drinking Mountain Dew and eating Doritos days, upgrade to beer and wings I suppose.
I am 29 and NHL 94 was my first PC sports video game. I facking loved it. That followed Dark Forces! Fackin loved that game too.
Bergeron extended for 8 years at 6.5 million. Think that is a steal... might be, or very close to, the best center in the league.
Posing a question here today... just want to see people's opinions. Who are your favorite and least favorite current Ranger... go
So, what is up with this Sharknado thing and why didn't anyone give me a heads-up about it? I mean Ian Ziering and Tara Reid fighting off a tornado full of sharks? When is this being replayed?
I have a feeling that either Boyle or Pyatt are gonna get moved next week, personally I much rather see pyatt gone. I think the biggest difference between the two is that Boyle can win face offs, both of them didn't exactly light it up or anything but I suppose Pyatt did do a lot of the scoring in the first 10 games, I don't think that's enough to keep him around and with Rask getting 7mil a year we need all the cap space we can get. On a side note I really don't want to see MDZ go, there is way too much upside to just let him go so young
Been reading the blog for a long time now but never got around to posting for some reason but now here I am. Just wanna start off saying 94' was the best year of my life, obviously because the Rangers won it all and NHL '94 was perhaps the greatest sports game ever made. (My life peaked when I was 5 years 6 months and 1 day old) you guys think the Rick Nash vs Marc-Andre Fleury move will be an automatic goal every time like it used to be? Of course I mean skating up the right wing and cutting across the front of the goalie to put it in, God that goal was Nashty.
@KevinDeLury Well, they nearly went to the Cup with Stu Bickel on defense. What the hell, World Peace is worth a shot!
@Ranger Dave holy crap dark forces was the shiznits
@FREE LINDBERG Favorite would have to be Hank, but Mac and Stepan are close runners up. Least favorite would be Asham. He just doesn't look like a ranger to me.
Next question: Favorite & least favorite All-Time Rangers.
@FREE LINDBERG Favorite:anyone who isnt Del Zotto.
My favorite is Mcdonagh (Kreider is a year away from taking over though) least favorite Boyle. Can't stand that he is 6'7" and is the biggest pansy on the team
Favorite=Cally then Richards.... Before everyone jumps on me.....what he did in that 6.6 game last year was one of the cluchest moments since Matteau, will be a cool memory for a while
Favorite is lundqvist
Least favorite is definitely asham, if he'd at least fight like he was supposed to then it would be hamrlik
@FREE LINDBERG Favorite: Cally. Least: Asham.
@KevinDeLury *cough* torrent *cough*
@KevinDeLury Sorry, we were all too busy with the Kovalquake!
@KevinDeLury "Sharknado" will re-air on SyFy on August 22 at 7 p.m.
@hankthetank30 Agree on Del Zotto. He has been a disaster on defense but I'm definitely curious to see what he can do Vigneault. The reason I think Boyle might go over Pyatt is because of the log jam at center. We'll see.
@hankthetank30 Thanks for joining the discussion!
@hankthetank30 It would be like old school Bruins hockey at MSG with MWP going up into the stands and fighting fans.
@FREE LINDBERG My favorite was Adam Graves (duh), my least favorite was John Ogrodnick. I simply hated that guy!
I would be disappointed if they traded DZ before we see what he can do under AV. As far as boyle I think he played his best at the wing last year. He wins face offs and kills penatlies. I dont really see anything that Pyatt does well. Would love if they could somehow trade him.
