EA Sports dropped dual videos on us today featuring more puck play from NHL 07. Each teaser focuses on a team, either the St. Louis Blues or the Florida Panthers, and you can clearly make out #12 Olli Jokinen in the Florida video. Whether or not you'll be able to bury the business end of your hockey stick in an opponent's neck remains to be seen, but watch the videos (by clicking on the movies tab above) and decide for yourself if anything qualifies as High sticking.
When a new EA Sports title launches, it's usually one of the biggest games to hit that month, if not the entire year. So it's a little strange to us that all there is to show of NHL 07 are three screens and a brief trailer showcasing Moscow-born Alexander Ovechkin murderatin' fools on the ice. Regardless, we've got them ready for your prying eyes. Hit up the images tab for screens and then skate over to the movies icon for all the Ovechkin you can take.

Encapsulating all of the bluster and fanfare of the pigskin parade that is NCAA football, EA has released new screens of NCAA Football 07. This year's enhancements focus around the new momentum system, which challenges teams to maintain their pushes with big plays, defensive stops and special teams. Turning the tide of a game is what it's all about, and players must use every tactic in their arsenal to keep their winning inertia
It may have chewed us up, spat us out and slapped us around the chops several times over, but still has a very special place in our hearts, so we're suitably chuffed that a new, special edition Gaiden is on its way to Xbox.
Called Ninja Gaiden Black, the game will feature new difficulty levels, a new mission mode and content taken from the Hurricane expansion packs. In addition, there will be some new cut-scenes and colossal amounts of bonus stuff, most notably a version of the original
Tecmo producer Tomonobu Itagaki has confirmed that hibernating Xbox title Dead or Alive Code Cronus will be shifted on to Xbox 360, where its development will continue.
Speaking to Japanese magazine Famitsu, Itagaki apologised for the delay of the game and went on to explain how he simply couldn't return to its Xbox development once he'd seen the power of Xbox 360.
