    Whats the girls name - with the voice, I want to know how she looks, just out of curiosity?

    *If I am going to be brainwashed from a person - then I wanna know how that person look....

    Thanks - fun read.

    "Her husband, Mike Hammer, founder of enforcer-themed hockey-style brand Violent Gentlemen..." - hehe nice brand...

    "There’s a fruit pun she’s especially proud of that she can’t wait for others to hear in the game.." I wonder how that one goes?

    So she's already familiar for the beapro crowd..

    I got use to hearing her voice - she hold me company when no one else was there to play on my team - searching for games..

    Always fun to get a 'face on a voice'. 👍

    This explains a lot:
    “It took me about 15 minutes to get in the groove,” Bathe adds. "Because it's not just reporting, it's voice acting. So you have the producer saying, ‘Okay, now pretend you're in an arena and raise your voice a little bit.’ So, I think I'm yelling my line. He then says, ‘All right, now do that and turn it up 5 to 10 notches.’ I'm like, ‘Okay, so I'm gonna be screaming.’ It feels like I'm literally yelling, and then you hear it in the game and you're like, ‘That sounds totally normal behind crowd noise!”

    So it's the producer's fault she sounds so annoying.

    Haha - I imagine it to be pretty difficult to get this kinda things right.

    But I dont find her 'thaaat' anoying - pretty smooth voice - almost - hot... 😬🤙

    LOL. She's certainly easy on the eyes - and she does have hockey cred. I actually like the stuff I have seen of her with the Kings, and the in game stuff is not so bad - it's the CHEL lobby recordings I find a bit superfluous.

    'If you look good - you feel good, then you play good, riiight?'

    That one I remember from her.

    Hehe yeah she was a pleasure for the eye - a pure bonus! 😜👌
  • All they have to do is give the option to turn her off. She is there if needed but many prefer it just stay off in the menus.

    Personally I'd turn her off. I pray to God she's not in franchise mode. That would drive me batty.

    Hehe yeah - thats the thing with these kinda things - where you have a voice that keeps coming back regularly and repeat itself because it's just a selected few lines to choose from.

    It's a 'war' the voice can't win - in the long run it gets tiresome.

    But for the short amount of time I got to know her in the test - I never got to that stage where I couldn't stand her.. 😚


    # I got my ps5 today - im all set for two games to realese! 😁🤙

    The option to turn her off would make sense as it is for turning off the commentary which many do (myself included) when they play for the first time with each addition.

    In EASHL it’s annoying when you have a teammate with it on and then you have to mute them.

  • one thing I always learned about EA Sports games and closed tech tests, take that with a grain of salt throw it out the window, cause everything you are doing won't even be put into store released version, they have game already finished, closed tech thing is like way too draw you in see it and feel it, they have Ultier motive already, so question yourself what are you even testing is my question, just you watch AI will be magnificent once it's released.

    he always changes it at the last moment.

    I think there is some validity here, the same was accused last year and I think it did play differently when the game came out. That's not necessarily a bad thing though.

    I don't remember them changing anything last year from tech demo through now.

    I believe it was NHL 19 where people absolutely raved about the beta and then they made changes and angered everyone. So for NHL 20 and 21 they pretty much didn't do any real changes gameplay from the betas.

    So it was.

    21 is by far the most 'consistent gameplay' I ever experience - on good and bad.

    I think it was one gameplay patch 2 months in - after that it was more about stuff that didn't affect the gameplay.

    But to keep in mind - I think 22 was the focus - pretty early on.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all if 22 will get more attention then 21 ever did.

    It's the beginning of a new generation and the building has just started.

    19 was beautiful at start when we all were virgin's - but that was before we figured out how to 'exploit it'.
  • Gonna be fun to see the difference going from playing the beta test on ps4 to playing the official realese on ps5.

    I was actually kinda impress by the look on the ice in the ps4 version - something tells me that the next version will be even better.. 🙄😃

    ~ 13-15 October is going to be good times!
  • A technical next gen question...

    If I set-up my ps5 - is my PS account connected to my new console then?

    So games I bought digital on my ps4 - is still something I can download in library on my 'next gen' super fantastic machine?

    I guess it's that way - but I thought I ask, just to be sure..

    Yes the digital purchases are tied to your account.
  • Hey Sega, if i remember right when i got mine, i had to have my ps4 running next to the ps5. They send u some codes via email to insert. It all prompts you on how to do everything. After all was said and done everything i had on the 4 was on the 5. You just go into your library and download whatever game you want.

    Congrats on your ps5. Im on the same.
    Friend request if you want. nyi95.
    We can versus each other, or just shoot the bull.

    Aah good to know - I manage to sell my old one for a couple of bucks but I havent ship it away yet. So I will have to look at this when the time is right!

    Hehe yeah thank you - I order it August 18th and got it 8-9 sep - not so bad, I was scared to miss out the realese of 22, but now I dont have to worry. Feels really great to take this step - and welcome a new generation! 🤤😛🤙

    I will 'holla back' at you - a soon as im up on my ps5 and 22 is out - then we go - I will have to stretch some of my nights, to be more in sync with your time-zone.

    Peace 😊✌️
  • I hope for a list of changes/improvements from the test to the official realese.

    Am I hoping for too much here?
