EA Sports Explains Epic NHL 13 Hercules Check Glitch with Comedy

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 5, 2012

Well, that explains everything. 

Thanks to EA Sports you will not know the exact reason there is a glitch in the latest hockey video game, but you will hardly care about it. 

The best way to cure a little blunder is with a whole lot of comedy, and that's what the makers of NHL 13 did with this video, answering for the Hercules Check. 

Recently, we brought you a report on a video that showed a hilarious glitch in the newest hockey game from EA Sports, and it had us rolling with the possibilities. 

Well, it seems the sounds of laughter reached the upper echelons of the company and it decided to do something about it—sort of. 

Per Yahoo! Sports, we have this video of NHL 13 producer Sean Ramjagsingh hoping to answer your burning question of how this could have happened. 

As he delivers a deadpan answer to all the fans, a hockey dummy is lofted in the air as a motion-capture specialist records every last bit of it. 

When Ramjagsingh is done giving his spiel, he notices the unrealistic capture taking place behind him. The only thing he can do is pretty much what EA Sports did, deliver an F-bomb and pretty much say, "Enjoy the game."

As the lockout continues, this is the best hockey entertainment we can hope for. Thanks to the Hercules check, we will certainly take it.
