  • 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 of 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...

    Posted April 9th, 2015 at 11:15 am 13 Comments ╗
    NHL 15 is now available in the EA Access "Vault" bringing the total number of titles now to 10. It's surprising only in its timing, as the most reasonable expectation was for it to go in once the season concluded. NHL joins Madden NFL 15, NBA Live 15, and EA Sports UFC as games added to Access in the last four months. FIFA 15 then it would reason could be coming as early as next month. The value of Access just keeps on rising. The EA Access service is currently exclusive to Xbox One as...
  • Features for Franchise Hockey Manager 2 Coming This Spring
    Posted February 25th, 2015 at 8:00 am No Comments ╗
    In 2013 OOTP Developments, creators of the Out of the Park Baseball franchise, debuted Franchise Hockey Manager. The game was met with mixed reviews that trended negative as a large number of users cited frequent crashes and other elements deemed disappointing or troublesome. Later this year the company will release Beyond the Sidelines Football in an attempt to break into the untapped market in that sport for PC management sims. With response to the first Franchise Hockey Manager in min...
  • Fourth Patch Released for NHL 15
    Posted January 20th, 2015 at 12:15 pm 5 Comments ╗
    Normally a fourth patch for a game would signify impressive post-release support. That hasn't really been the case for NHL 15, as EA Sports has only done the bare minimum when considering the state they released the game in and the promises they made prior to then. It could be argued though they haven't even done that much given how poor and infrequent the roster updates have been. Features that have been added in post-release updates include Playoff Mode, Be a Pro Coach Feedback, Three S...
