God... they need to change the commentary... its been the same for years now.
They really had to write "Advance to Gameplay" instead of "Play"? The menus in these games..
It's cause you're already playing.
Playing in menus.
V&J, the ultimate sports game commentators.
My thoughts exactly.
"Can we make the weather real bad?"
When the announcer said something about aliens playing hockey, all I could think of was the Mighty Ducks cartoon where the ducks were actual ALIEN DUCKS PLAYING HOCKEY.
Playing a hockey game horizontally? Sacrilege!
@SushiNao: I don't think you can taint Pennywise anymore than being Pennywise.
What's new in NHL13? Is there a "go on strike... again" option?
Didn't they just have a strike and cancel the season back in like 08-09?
50 minutes of a hockey game?
The comments make it seem like it may be worth it, but damn.

Quiet you. Soccer is more entertaining than all your basketballs and hockeys and "foot" ball.
@Aegon: Pretty sure they mean for the physics engine.
Nah, I know they haven't done much of note lately. Still, they were one of my favourite bands when I was younger, and Bro Hymn is one of their best & most powerful
Wow. This was really painful to watch. Lost count how many scoring opportunities Vinny wasted.
I love that the first fight pitted Jari Kurri against some random dude. Jari Kurri will fuck you up!
Hey, should we co-opt this as Giant Bomb's official Canadian forum, in a two birds with one stone situation?
Okay Jeff and Vinny, I love you guys. I love this damn site so much, but you NEED to hire a "sports guy" come on please.
This is a weird fighting game. It was 40 minutes of guys skating around on ice before any actual fighting happened.
Wow almost a 1 hour quick look on hockey. I love you guys.
Alex is the sports guy
Alex is hardly ever featured in videos (for good reasons) and I still wouldn't consider him "the sports guy." I appreciate these quick looks because they're funny, but it would be nice to have someone who is a legitimate sports fan and could bring some legitimate insight to the gameplay mechanics, realism, etc. I just think it would be a nice contrast instead of two dudes who honestly have no idea what is going on.
Still really enjoy these.
Flyers versus the rangers. Ah haha you guys crack me up
Nice QL guys. Jeff and Vinny top notch professional sports experts lol love it!
These are my favorite quick looks.
"It's like an IGN review over here" #SHOTSFIRED
I love that whenever Jeff and Vinny pick up a sports game, it's like they've never played a video game in their lives.
I love that they have to put the new features in the intro video. "Hey you guys, it's not just a roster update!"
The puck in this game has a weird shadowy aura. Demon puck.
"Is this guy drunk?"
"No, that is just a French Canadian."
In my experience, it probably is both.
It seems they didn't realize you have to use the right stick to aim where to pass to.
He plays hockey games like anyone who doesn't know anything about hockey. Once a guy gets the puck, never pass it, just skate right at the net and try a slap shot from an inch away.
This game is missing one thing and one thing only: Don Cherry!
jeff is out of control
Man...this QL isn't bad or anything, but after the last couple of AMAZING Jeff+Vinny sports QL's, its hard not to feel a little underwhelmed when something totally insane doesn't happen.
I'm not sure what you were expecting.
Looking forward to your FIFA 13 Quick Look
Every year I look forward to EA's new lineup of sports releases purely for the quicklooks.
You guys are nuts! The Jeff and Vinny combo of blindly entering sports games is one of my favorite GB things!
@Mister_V: my thoughts EXACTLY. Vinny + Jeff + sports make me glad to be a subscriber.
Giant Bomb Sports Desk is almost beating Giant Bomb Flight Club for my favorite feature on the site now.
i hope they do nba 2k13
I really don't want to be "that guy" but my hockey nerdom is too over powering.
-Hartford Whalers became the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997
-The Kings just won the Stanley Cup... so yeah Jeff they're pretty good these days (You were in LA when they did, how do you not remember that?)
-The game isn't over rating the NHL teams with stars it's that the game has multiple leagues (like FIFA) and that the NHL is the premier league in the game so by comparison all the NHL teams are that good.
As someone who has bought just about every EA hockey game since 94' and went at midnight to pick up 13', this quick look was glorious.
I am Canadian and don't care about hockey. I did however like getting in fights in some Genesis hockey game I had.
Is it a bit nipply in here or did I just watch a hockey Quick Look?
Only two Winter Classics to pick from? No Heritage Classic? Boooooo.
I am also Canadian and I think hockey is stupid. Of course, I think most team sports are stupid in general. I do enjoy poutine and smoked salmon though. I have ended sentences with a sincere and non-ironic 'eh'. I think those francophones out east are fucking bastards but could not provide any clear rationale for that bias if asked. :D
quebecois with your ockey and your hice. D:
I don't even watch hockey and I was increasingly agitated when Vinny wouldn't shoot the puck.
Everybody is saying it, but Jeff/Vinny quick looks are always great.
