According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Violence

Parents should feel comfortable using this as a tool for indoctrinating their children into a lifelong love of hockey. While there is violence, it's of the mild tripping, checking, and occasional punching variety. The seamier side of sports, with the drinking and the drugs and the gambling, have been completely left out.

Hockey fans should be satisfied with the level of realism and the inclusion of seemingly every current pro player. Just be forewarned—f you're not familiar with the series, there's a pretty severe learning curve.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should be fine. There aren't any audio cues or instructions. The only thing you'll miss out on is the colour commentary, which actually manages to last quite a few games before getting stale and repetitive.

What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died?

Nothing relevant to this conversation, that's for sure! Because we're here to talk about (sorry, write and read about, respectively) GC_Danny, who's updating this profile for the first time in thirteen years!

So let's take a gander back at that time and see what's happened! In addition to writing hundreds of video game reviews, Dan produced a book that can be legally purchased by almost anyone! He also wrote two short films, two episodes of television, and two movies! Although, sadly, and through much fault of his own, the movies have yet to be released.

In addition to general game reviewing, he's also dabbled in more long-form work, writing some of the longest and most comprehensive game reviews of all time. Then there's his non-GameCritics blogging, where he's famous as the world's foremost expert on the TV show Criminal Minds, as well as the co-host of a weekly podcast - he's even working on a new videogame/critical experiment, which you can find out more about here!

If all that wasn't enough, just a few months ago he rebranded himself as 'The Hidden Object Guru', hoping to stake another claim of ultimate expertise, this time over a genre of casual games! Will he be successful? Only time will tell, but you're free to join the thrilling ride at his YouTube channel!
