New overtime rules headline pre-release patch for NHL 16
When EA Sports first stated that the new 3-on-3 rules for overtime would not be included for launch of NHL 16, many fans were understandably disappointed. The rules were not suddenly sprung on the company out of nowhere - they should have been planning ahead for that scenario to take place - and the company didn't even seem to think it was all that important by saying only that it was something they "would look at" for a post-release update.
Thankfully those who pick up NHL 16 next week, ...

NHL 16 EASHL beta impressions
The NHL 16 EA Sports Hockey League beta has now been open for a week - and it remains so through tomorrow - providing an unprecedented (for the sports gaming genre) glimpse at the game which isn't due out until mid-September.
EASHL was a mode that I found very compelling when it launched in NHL 09, and played heavily that year and a few that followed. However beyond then interest waned as it went largely unchanged and took on a microtransaction slant in the upgrading of player ratings.
