EA Sports Spoofs Itself With NHL 13 'Hercules Check' Video

Dealing with bugs in a game can be difficult for developers. Fans get easily outraged when a product doesn't meet their standards, and they can be very impatient when waiting for a fix (rightfully so, to an extent; they did shell out $60). EA Sports showed that it has a sense of humour when reacting to a glitch in NHL 13 known as the "Hercules check". Rather than silently patching the problem, they published a video drawing attention to the hilarity of the bug. Even if you're not a hockey fan, this is a clip worth watching. Bravo, EA Sports marketing team. You brought a smile to my face during a time of depression for professional hockey fans. Check it out after the jump.
