So, now that I have my PS3 connected to my gorgeous monitor, I though I'd try out a game...NHL 08 - What else. In a hockey town such as Ottawa, lot of people at work have been talking about it.
So, Patrick (our new contributor) and I played it last weekend. The game was a disappointment for the most part. Both of us were really excited that we'd start a Dynasty Mode with the Ottawa Senators, and finish it by wining the Stanley Cup... and that's where the dream ended.
We fired up the game. The first pop-up said that Auto-Save mode was enabled by default, and that it would automatically save our progress. Alright, awesome. So, we created a Dynasty Mode 'Profile', played the first few games, then decided to take a break. Since Auto-save was on, we'd be able to pick up where we had left off. Nope! When we loaded up the profile again, nothing was saved, and we were back again, at the beginning of the season with a record of 0-0-0. What??
So, we though we'd give that another try. We decided to simulate the games up to about December. BIG MISTAKE.
