    • @segathon it's not too late to join us. There is still good in you. I can feel it.

    I want to do good but the evil is always present.  I was playing 94 the week on the King, things were great.  I was brushing my teeth, going to work and playing 94.  But just when things were looking up I hear a guy in an alley say "Wanna get some 95???"  Next thing I knew I woke up 3 days later covered in NHL 95 games in a dumpster wearing different cloths that were not mine.  

    All jokes aside.  Great work you guys on the King Weekend.  It was a blast to watch online.  It's on my bucket list to attend some day.

  2. So what do you think of this wrinkle to game play?

    I always thought being on the power play isn't that much of an advantage in the 16 bit version of game.  

    So to give the power play more oomph what do you think about "no manual goalie" for team on penalty kill rule?

    I like it a lot, but my biggest worry is can it be enforced during the heat of the game.  What would be the penalty if someone switched to goalie during PK? 

     

     


  3. Good stuff, funny how none of us have really read the manual closely.   

    Gonna have to crack open 95 manual again.  I remember in 95 they talk about that directional passing too.  Passing really took a step back in 95 and you can't really pass it anywhere but straight ahead, a wicket angle to corner of rink that's useless  or to a player. 

    I was just amazed that the manual goes past 50 pages, albeit smaller pages.  They really filled those up.


  4. I am right with you Clockwise. I roam these old forums like that pesky robot Wall-e , reminiscing of the great forum posts of the past in the roaring 'aughts' of this new millennium when NHL94.com was the hub of my Internets.  

    Facebook is overrun with my aunts that post "you rock!" on everyone one of my witty posts and Discord frightens and confuses me.

    Hey everyone!  I had posted something on the NHL FB page but didn't know if everyone is on that so I'll add it here as well.  I had noticed that through all of the amazing team analysis there wasn't really any graphic representation of the teams "tiers".  I designed a visual aid to go along with the number crunching.  I know that we all will not agree 100% on which teams belong where, especially in the middle tiers, but I thought it would be fun to share.  I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think!

    ***P.S.*** These tiers are for the Genesis.  I haven't gotten to the SNES rankings.

  6. SEGATHON - GENS (with NHL 95 *ducks as trash is thrown my direction*)

    1. Name, age, occupation, location?

    Nick AKA the Commish, I sell mats,  Twin Cities, MN.  

    2. What hobbies or other interests do you have?

    Taking care of my kiddos, Curling, hunting, and poultry….Have a Pigeon FB site I put up one day when I was bored and now have like 5,000 followers.

    3. When did you get introduced to the game NHL'94?  How did it happen?

     Grade school Bday sleepover, played it all night and felt like the players were melting on the screen from sleep deprivation.  May of been the OG NHL Sega version.

    4. When did you get introduced to nhl94.com and the online community? Were you playing between these two dates?  (That is, between first becoming aware of game, and first becoming aware of nhl94.com.)

    Internet search on Altavista, not Google,  Maybe I askedjeeves?  When I started using the Internet for more than just logging into my Hotmail account and found this glorious site. 

    5. What are a couple things that you love about the game?

    Breaking out the game with old friends puts people into a kid like mindset, you don’t talk about paying mortgages, you talk about how the computer is screwing you on penalties.  A simpler time 

    6. Are you a gamer in general? What other games do you play?

    Having 3 kids put a damper on may gaming.  Still love retro sports games like Tecmo, NBA JAM, Ps2 Madden.  Will get my arse kicked on Fortnite mobile when I’m on the can.

    7. Do you follow hockey in real life? Any other sports?

    The North Stars left town when I was a kid so College Hockey was extra big to me,  Many schools in MN area.  Did a Fantasy College Hockey league where we manually kept stats for a while.    Love watching all sports. 

    8. If you have been to a live tourney, what was it like meeting the real people behind the screen names? Any big surprises?

    NHL 94 tourney is still on my bucket list but have been to a bunch of Segathons and Tecmo events. Always great to meet people in person.  Jerr said it best above, Big Personalities, humble guys. 

    9. What is behind your screen name? (Origin story, if there is one.)

    Segathon is our yearly NHL 95 Tourney.  We always held little tourneys but with the advent of Digital Cameras and the easily posted primitive internet webpages  in the early 2000s I askedjeaves and found "theunholygrail.com" which was the exact same thing as our segathons,  A NHL 95 tourney with friends.  Started documenting it and the rest is history.  Probably the only time one a year I can get a bunch of my closest friends in the same room for a night.  Another great thing is people find the site from all over and say they do the exact same thing.

    10. Favorite NHL94 player in game (and why)?

    Theo Fleury the little big man.  He was small and I was small in grade school, plus the chroma red Flames looks so good in 16 bit.

  7. Its a great watch. I was grinning ear to ear the whole time

    I love how universal  NHL 95 (or any version) tourneys are to people.  Edge and Christian had the same story many of us had growing up.  Little Tourneys done inhouse with a lot of pride on the line.  I think that's why the Swingers scene resonates as well.
