  1. I love Mutant League Hockey. I picked it up about 3 years ago, again because of Chris Alaimo's mention of it in his NHL '94 video. Its hilarious. And I think its a fun one to play with the person who you know isn't the biggest sports fan but you still want to play a sports-like game. In some ways, I'm amazed at what EA / Sega got away with, with that game. Its awesome and its not an easy one / cheap one to find out there if you're looking to find a cart somewhere. Sure there is always emulation but I think its a great game.
  2. I played SNES a lot more than Sega Genesis. Really only in the last 4 years have I been spending more time playing Sega Genesis and most of it (ducking out of the way of something being thrown at me) it isn't for sports games as much as it is for its large collection of high quality shooters. Now I have NHL '94 on the SNES, Genesis and Sega CD. The Sega CD one is great, but its a pain in the a%% to set up. I don't use emulation, all original physical media. So for me, my first exposure to NHL '94 was on the Super Nintendo and to be honest, I like that controller so much better than the Genesis one, especially the standard 3-button one. Triple Deke is a pretty good move; especially for the SNES version.
  3. Well I hope you guys give some credit to Chris Alaimo at Classic Gaming Quarterly. For the NHL'94 feature, even Sal Barry, the author of the article admitted that he was inspired by Chris' work even though he didn't give him any credit in the article itself which I thought was strange and a bit sketchy. Chris gave your site love a long time ago in his history of NHL '94. As a long time Hockey News subscriber I had fun reading it and gave my copy to Chris because I felt he deserved the credit to see what his work had inspired. But it was great to learn about this place through his work and I'm glad to make myself a member.
  4. Current rosters would probably make the most sense. But you don't have to go to that trouble. It was just a mild suggestion. Either way, what you've done is very cool and I've passed it on to some other guys who I know are big college hockey fans.
  5. I wouldn't say I've been lurking but I've known about this place ever since I first heard about it when I watched Chris Alaimo's history of NHL '94 about 4 years ago on YouTube on his Classic Gaming Quarterly channel. I've seen the love you've received in subsequent years from The Hockey News and documentaries, etc. I've been a follower on Twitter probably for a little over a year now. My profile pretty much says everything you need to know. But to quickly summarize is I'm originally from the NW suburbs of the Twin Cities and I currently live in South Central Wisconsin. I am an avid NHL fan and have been blogging about my favorite team and hockey in general for 16+ years. I remember when I first picked up NHL '94 back when I was in High School. It was during that crappy time shortly after the North Stars had left for Dallas. Just seeing Dallas in that game wasn't pleasant. Then seeing Dallas win the Stanley Cup a few years later was rather bittersweet to say the least. Whether its right or wrong, I still hate that team immensely. So when I used to play I used to be Hartford or the Nordiques a lot with the hope those teams would come to Minnesota; plus I love their jerseys and logos. Pat Verbeek and Geoff Sanderson are machines! Then the Wild came along and I was a fan of them even before the announced what their name would be. Its been mostly a roller coaster ride of mediocrity but it could be worse. Beyond that, life is treating me well and since I'm the only kid in my house, unless you count my wife...just living the dream.
  6. This is pretty awesome! Any chance there could be a "Classic WCHA" edition where it features the following teams? Minnesota Golden Gophers St. Cloud State Huskies Bemidji State Beavers Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs Minnesota State Mavericks Wisconsin Badgers Alaska Anchorage Seawolves Colorado College Tigers Denver Pioneers Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks North Dakota Fighting Sioux Michigan Tech Huskies If someone makes this...you will have "Bring back the old WCHA" fans uploading this ROM in droves.
