NHL 2000 interviews

NHL-Online has posted a couple of interviews with the team working on EA's NHL 2000. There aren't many "hardball" questions, but it does give you a good idea of the changes made in the latest version. I'm keyed that they are working on getting rid of the "invincible goalie" AI (try scoring in NHL 99 on a slapshot or a breakaway, it's almost impossible). ESPN's Bill Clement will be providing color commentary. Another cool feature is that you can import a picture of your (or anyone else's) face and slap it on a player. Want to be the starting center for the Red Wings? You can!

NHL 96 is easily the most frustrating game I've ever played. It took me months to figure out how to win. Finally I did, and took my beloved Red Wings to the Stanley Cup (a year before they really made it). If NHL 2000 delivers on EA's promises, I'll be buying it. It is scheduled to be released in mid-September.

System requirements: P200 (P300 recommended), 32M RAM, 1M 2D card with DirectX 6.1 (Glide or D3D 3D card recommended), 70 MB disk space (200 recommended), 4x CD-ROM (16x recommended), DirectSound sound card (EAX supported--yeah baby!), and 33.6K modem for Internet play (56K recommended). What?!? You mean to tell me that I have a computer that can actually handle the latest EA NHL release? Will wonders never cease!
