One of the first video games I ever bought was Nhl 94 for the family computer way back in the day. I was just starting hockey myself and thought the graphics looked amazing.
Just like the real thing! Over the years I’ve lost all interest in playing EA’s NHL series. My favorite hockey games growing up were Blades of Steel, Wayne Gretzky’s Hockey and NHL Hitz. Those games were fun. I wanted to score goals and punch people out. I was a simple kid.
Well, that arcade hockey void looks like it’s being filled thanks to a new game called, Old Time Hockey.
Just look at that trailer. My memberberries are in full force. It looks like a great way to kill a Sunday afternoon and it’s got couch co-op to boot!
Its got everything I want in a hockey game. 70s afros, big moustaches, no helmets, dirty hits, bench-clearing brawls, goalie fights, stick fights, ref abuse and locker room language. FUCK YEAH!
V7 Entertainment officially announced the development of Old Time Hockey today and it’s set for release in early 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
