    After a week of speculation as circumstantial evidence continued to mount EA Sports has now finally confirmed that there will be no EA Sports Hockey League or GM Connected modes in the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of NHL 15. It's another in a long line of major mishaps in recent years by EA - not just about losing the critical features but the way they alienated consumers in the process and damaged a brand.  (more…)...

    With the EA Access details for Madden NFL 15 finally being clarified yesterday a panel featuring myself (@Pastapadre), Rich Grisham (@RichGrisham), T.J. Lauerman (@ThatSportsGamer), and Pete Dodd (@atPeteDodd) got together for a discussion on the news. Madden will be limited to six hours in its early play period...something that was hidden until three days before it starts. EA however had no problem pushing consumers to subscribe for the three weeks beforehand. Is the six hour limitation...

  • EASHL and GM Connected Left Out of NHL 15 Achievements on Xbox One and PS4

    EA Sports still refuses to address the growing unrest regarding the presence of EA Sports Hockey League and GM Connected in NHL 15. It's likely they plan at some point this week to attempt to bury the bad news, that the modes are not included in the game, with other feature information that they hope will deflect some of the attention away from the revelation. That's not going to work though. The mode is too popular, the fans too passionate, that EASHL is all that matters right now. Even ...

    CoachGlass is returning for Madden NFL 15 but this year it won't be exclusive to the Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 version will also be able to tap into the feature which provides statistics, tendencies, and play-calling suggestions on tablets and phones during games. In the first implementation of CoachGlass, users had the ability to call plays from the device but were limited to only having defensive playcall suggestions. We’ve now evened the playing field and made offensive suggestions...
  • Madden NFL 15 Early Play Period in EA Access Limited to Six Hours

    When EA Access was announced the service appeared to offer significant value but there were some questionable terms laid out as well. The "Play First" period, which offers the ability to play games "up to five days" prior to release, could be limited to as few as two hours and have portions of the game blocked. The time restriction seemed more likely to apply to story-driven games than the sports games which are is pretty much the sole force behind EA Access in its early days - and Season Ti...

  • Gameplay Videos Out of Gamescom

    A number of off-screen videos have emerged from Gamescom for NBA 2K15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, and PES 2015. It's bizarre that companies allow such unflattering footage like these videos present to become what for many is the first impression of how the games look and play, when they could put out a high quality polished video under their own control that highlights improvements. However it hasn't seemed to do any harm in the past considering this is the nature in which NBA 2K's first gameplay has ...
  • Back of Box Appears to Confirm No EASHL in Xbox One and PS4 NHL 15

    There has been a mounting pile of circumstantial evidence that EA Sports Hockey League, and possible GM Connected as well, will not be included in the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of NHL 15. What may be the most damning now is the actual back of the box, found on the Costco website, that lists it as being only two players online. EASHL is confirmed to return for the 360 and PS3 and the back of the box for that version does display the 12 player maximum. The hope would now turn ...
