Ted,
 
How's NHL 08 holding up for you? Do you still play it?

I haven't played it, but not because it isn't good. It is more convenient for me to play on the PC so I play 07 there. And I have spent most of this last week flying in FSEconomy with my gaming hours.

08 is a good game, just as good as 07 with the sliders reset to 07. I even did a little slider adjusting *gasp!* last week and was pleased with the way the game looked while playing, but as usual I neutered the CPU so I went back to 07 default sliders for 08. After getting the hang of the shot stick and adjusting to few nuances in 08 I like it a lot. If you dont' get it I'll wait for the $10 price tag on the PC version next summer. Of course by then I'll probably have a 360 as well and if so I'll just get that version.

So, yes NHL 08 is holding up. I'm just not using the PS2 right now, unfortunately.

I'll most likely pick it up if there's a $10 price drop on the PS2 version. Hopefully it'll happen soon.

You'll never be ready for me WinkLOL.
 
I'm also thinking of picking up MVP NCAA 07. I played a few games of 06 last night and enjoyed it a lot. If the frame rate is any better in 07, I'll be very happy with it. I'd like to get NHL 08 (on sale), NBA Live 08 (on sale) and MVP NCAA 07.

Yes, I enjoy the occasional game of MVP 06 as well.  Is 07 released?

MVP 07 came out last February and Kevin reviewed it Gameshark.

I like both 08 and 2K8 on PS2;the shot stick on the EA game is a nice addition,but I still think 2K plays the better game.Progressive scan on the 2K game give it a definite edge in graphics.

MVP 07 plays a nice game of baseball,and I didn't experience frame rate issues.
The graphics are absolute butt though,and the rosters are now 3 years out of date.

Thanks for the info koebner. The rosters in MVP 07 don't bother me because I don't know any of the players anyway. Glad to hear the framerate/studdering issues seem to be resolved in 07 too.
 
Isn't Toys R' Us going to have a "Buy 2 get 1 free" soon?
