Video: A tongue-in-cheek look at NHL 13’s physics

Oct 5, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT


When you make big changes to video games, it’s common for there to be bugs and glitches.

EA Sports’ NHL 13 tweaked the title’s physics, resulting in some occasional odd moments. The company recently released a tongue-in-cheek video reacting to “the Hercules check,” which you can see below.

Note: there is some mild language, so this could qualify as NSFW.

Quick poll: do you think the decision not to reference “The Nutty Professor” was a missed opportunity or an example of tasteful restraint?

Either way, kudos to EA Sports for not taking themselves too seriously.

    This video game may be the only NHL ’13 we get. BA-ZING!!

    Pretty funny. I hope they parody their goaltending next, as it gets worse every year despite the claims (that I always fall for) that it will be improved. Until then, I’m off to win another game 21-20: like real NHL games.

      maybe you should stop playing actual 20 minute periods.

        7 minutes. Superstar. All shooting accuracy at zero.

    Kind of funny that one of the new features was “NHL live moments, new moments from the current season will be added for you to play!”. Well I guess they can update with a bs CBA Negociations game with bettman…

    After the debacle that is NHL 13 and the Debacle that is Madden 13 I am done with EAsports games. I think it’s time to go back to 2k for Hockey and football.

      Sadly, 2k is out of the hockey game completely. It used to be better than EA.
