I also got a little bit of time in for NHL 2004. It is very interesting going back to older sports titles I remember well from my childhood. Also seeing the rosters and ratings from then are a lot of fun with nostalgia. My Colorado Avalanche was stacked this year and seeing that I remember how optimistic that year was for a cup run, but bad goaltending was there undoing after Patrick Roy retired the year before. Fun time to see how the game played and boy was it arcady-like. Big hits and really the only way to score was one timers. Oh how the shot stick has really changed the way to play the game. I am getting excited for NHL 15 and first next gen hockey game. Only a few more months to wait for that.

Weekend in Gaming
A great 3 day weekend that saw me out of the house a lot playing golf and of course the obligatory fire work show. However I did get some more time into Watch Dogs and would say I am three quarters of the way through campaign and will soon just be doing trophy clean up. Hopefully somehow I get tailed 5 times before then but I am not very optimistic for that one as I haven't been tailed once. Really Ubisoft, a 100% luck based trophy that has to be done by other players is the dumbest thing ever! The story itself is interesting and the hacking idea is fun, however now I am finding the game to get boring as it is rinse and repeat with every mission. Go to compound, find a way to use cameras to eliminate as many bad guys as possible, run in and shot the rest, and hack. That's it every single time.
