  • More Questions About NHL 16 Answered, Yet Topic of Player Editing Being Avoided
    Posted May 21st, 2015 at 1:45 pm 11 Comments »
    To go along with the early release of feature information for NHL 16, EA Sports has been answering some questions related to the game through the "Ask NHL" page on the official website. Some responded to include the addition of every team's mascot, hats being thrown on the ice when a player records a Hat Trick, and there being no Online Shootouts mode. Of course they're cherry-picking those they want to answer and avoiding ones they'd rather not. In that latter category is whether or not ...
  • Your Thoughts on the Feature Set for NHL 16
    Posted May 20th, 2015 at 5:15 pm 7 Comments »
    The NHL season has only just reached the Conference Finals but EA Sports has provided an early glimpse ahead to fall's NHL 16. There's far more substance here, providing a full features list, than would be typical four months out from release and with E3 just under four weeks away. The experience ofĀ last year, when the company lost much of their consumer base by releasing a half-finished game and attempting to hide that fact until the very last minute, has necessitated this strategy of b...
  • Complete List of Features for NHL 16
    Posted May 19th, 2015 at 8:30 am 9 Comments »
    Last year was rough for the NHL series as EA Sports not only lost significant sales due to an abnormally thin feature set (despite extra development time) but they severely damaged trust with the community by handling things deceptively. It was a given that most of the features that went missing in NHL 15 would return for NHL 16...with the exception of GM Connected. The question was how much would they be able to do above that to make the upcoming game enticing to those now skeptical of a...
  • The Golf Club Not Having Much Effect on Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Purchase Plans
    Posted May 14th, 2015 at 10:15 am 4 Comments »
    Golf is one of the few sports now to feature actual competition with the arrival of the "sim" game The Golf Club last August and its recent push due to a retail release and accompanying feature update. It's appeal is fairly limited however, targeting the golfing purists, while the upcoming Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is clearly trying to draw in casuals as well. A poll was posted last week to gauge how the presence of The Golf Club could be affecting the approach for some towards Rory McIlroy P...
  • Latest FIFA 15 Patch Involves Ultimate Team
    Posted May 11th, 2015 at 6:45 pm 2 Comments »
    Another patch released for FIFA 15 today on all systems and for the most part it only affects Ultimate Team mode. Support continues on the game, which was notably just added to EA Access, because of Ultimate Team. The rest of the game isn't being hampered by it (at this point) because complete focus would have turned to FIFA 16 long before now otherwise. The launch of "Team of the Season" had been delayed due to the desire to address more coin exploits with this patch. Some dramatic chang...
  • FIFA 15 Now Available in EA Access Vault
    Posted May 8th, 2015 at 9:00 am 14 Comments »
    FIFA 15's addition to the EA Access ā€œVaultā€ today brings the total number of titles offered by the service to 11. Like NHL 15 last month FIFA 15 has been introduced before its "season" has even come to a conclusion. In the case of FIFA we'll just refer to theĀ Premier League in that sense which still has a few weeks to go - though its champion is a foregone conclusion. The Vault now contains all of 2014's EA Sports games: FIFA 15, NHL 15, Madden NFL 15, NBA Live 15, and EA Sports UFC....
