I'm already struggling to choose what team I'll play first !!

I think I'll go for the francophone cousins in QC ;)

I really, really, really wish we can create our own teams at some point, I have a few funny ideas already :D

Looks very intriguing! I'll be interested to read the reviews upon release in order to see whether it is genuinely fun or just a gimmick. I really hope it turns out well!

Same here; I'm hoping for a nice '90s-style hockey game, with a healthy balance of smash-'em-up and hockey.

Combine that with the unique '70s theme, and the fact that they'll be the only active hockey game on PC... they'll have something :thup:

I've watched a couple guys streaming the game in career/story mode today, and I'm very hyped by the game : NHL-esque controls, nice stroy mode idea, fair price (11,99 US $ on Steam apparently).

Add to it the possibility to have Steam workshop team modification/add-on and I'll be more than satisfied.

Hot off the press, it's live on Steam! And like Ukko said, very nice price, too... only $11.99 :thup:

EDIT: Word of warning, though: the game currently requires a controller.

Looks like it's just about the hockey matches. I always thought it included some off ice elements as well. That's the impression I got from the webpage. Ah well, maybe I'll buy it, maybe not.

Unfortunately, I ended up refunding :(

It's not a terrible game, but it's definitely not what I was hoping it would be, and still needs some work. The story mode, for example, seems to be about ticking off objectives rather than simply playing hockey. I was hoping for a more traditional season mode, even if it's a limited number of seasons like they used to be.

I'll check back later and see how they're getting along, but for now, there's a huge iRacing dirt update coming today that needs my wallet ;)
