NHL stat sim bucks tradition

Sega's Eastside Hockey Manager series skips '06; 2007 edition available exclusively through digital distribution September 22.


NHL Eastside Hockey Manager 2007

As the owner of the Charlestown Chiefs from the 1977 Paul Newman classic Slap Shot would say, "P*** on old time hockey!" In some ways, Sega is doing just that for its PC and Mac stat-based strategy sim NHL: Eastside Hockey Manager 2007. First, the publisher is abandoning numeric logic by following up last year's NHL: Eastside Hockey Manager 2005 with a 2007 installment. Second, the company is bypassing retail entirely with the game. Sega has announced that Eastside Hockey Manager 2007 will be available for download for $34.99 on September 22 directly from the Eastside Hockey Manager Web site.
