If you were someone who bought into The Golf Club at the outset with the promise that more was coming, yesterday's update has to make you very happy. Not only did HB Studios deliver a new theme, Boreal, but they also added new backgrounds for the course creator in the existing themes and new commentary.

Many companies would call it a wrap at that point, but The Golf Club delivers so much more in its new content update. The new cameras and the ability to cycle them on the fly in real-time is a great new tool to help you think through your shots. And when you need to change clubs, you can now scroll through them the other way from putter to driver as well. It's a small addition, but it's welcome nonetheless.

The new courses and tournaments, as well as the new separation in the game between official and user created content only helps the overall experience in finding and enjoying great courses.

I haven't gotten a chance to play the game on a PC yet, but the Mouse and Keyboard tweaks have to be much welcome by people playing The Golf Club on that platform as well.

If you have had any doubts about this game and are a golfing fan, it is with a high recommendation that you pick The Golf Club up. HB Studios is promising even more updates to come in both content and features, so there is zero doubt that the game you get now will only be better in a few months time. You can't say that about many games on the market today.

We added a few new screenshots of the new Boreal theme which you can see here.

The planned October content update for NHL 15 has arrived for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users. It includes the addition of OTP and the all new NHL entry draft. Unfortunately for OTP users, you can't play with friends, OTP is used for ranked matches.

According to quite a few users, the third jerseys don't appear to be in the game, but they are listed in the update.

UPDATE: According to djblue, if you download the latest roster update, you will see the third jerseys.

You can view the entire list of fixes and additions below. Let us know what you are seeing.

Quote:
Online Team Play

Play online with up to ten players, locked to a single position using real-world rosters. These matches will be 5v5 ranked with AI controlled goalies.

Be a GM - Rookie Draft

For the first time in the NHL franchise, you will be put on the clock and feel the pressure like a real NHL GM. As they do at the NHL Entry Draft, you have three minutes to make a draft pick.

If the pressure is too much, you can also call timeouts to extend the amount of time you have to make a draft pick or potentially negotiate a trade. You can make trades at any time during the draft. The CPU will also propose trades to each other and the user throughout the course of the draft.

If you are having issues connecting to the NBA 2K15 servers to play MyCAREER, MyTEAM or any other online mode, Gento has discovered a workaround to get online.

Unfortunately, it requires a friend to invite you to a MyTEAM matchup, so if you don't have any friends online, you're stuck. This is confirmed to work on the PlayStation 4, but feel free to try it out on the PC and/or Xbox One and let us know if it worked for you. If you find any other workarounds, please post them here.

This will be a temporary workaround, until 2K fixes the issue.

Last night I had the pleasure (ahem, misfortune) of playing the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. Not only did I lose the series in seven games, I lost the series in the last two games by succumbing to what just might be one of the most cerebral deconstructions of a video game sports team I've ever been the user controller of by computer A.I.

Not only did the Spurs expose every defensive weakness my Oklahoma City Thunder were giving (and with me playing, there were plenty), but their defensive pressure to take Durant and Westbrook out of the game towards the end of the series was nothing short of a methodical beat down.

And it was glorious.

While teams aren't playing exactly like their real-to-life counterparts yet, I'm pretty certain we're closer now than ever before. Last night's effort by San Antonio against me is proof of that on some level. What teams are you finding are simply hard to beat?

When I play Pro Clubs in FIFA 15, I’m reminded of how frustrating, short-sighted and unacceptable the omission of EA Sports Hockey League is in NHL 15. While the narrative of NHL 15’s launch became about what modes weren’t in, I think the more understated point was a loss of a way to play. It was an affront to how users have started to build teams and community around sports brands. Online franchise modes and team play helps players invest in long-term commitments to a game, and they participate in these ecosystems even despite some microtransactions, server outages and player exploits. The ability to share an experience — triumph or defeat — becomes something powerful when each team member is investing in learning a position and contributing in their own way.

The PES 2015 demo dropped a couple of weeks ago, and our guys have spent a bit of time playing it.

With release a few weeks away still, here's a couple of sets of thoughts on the demo and what you can look forward to when PES 2015 releases on November 11th.

Owen Good at Polygon penned a great article this weekend talking about the future of the NBA Live series. Sean O'Brien, the executive producer of NBA Live 15, has several very interesting quotes within the article which speak directly to the future of the franchise.

The most interesting quote comes in the first parts of the article where O'Brien answers Owen's question on whether there will be an NBA Live 16 or not, "Guaranteed. We've already started development on 16. We're staffing up. We're actually increasing investment on what 16 — and 17 — look like."

This is especially good news since EA is in its final year of its agreement with the NBA. If indeed Live sticks around, time will likely lead it into a pretty good direction in the future. Much of the article was spent downplaying NBA Live 15's potential though.

Some quotes from O'Brien:

"Part of me wishes people could hear the conversations I'm in. I wish I could snap my fingers and it would be two years from now."

"We're a work in progress."

"It's a long term strategy. Building a high-definition game is not easy. I think the game we're creating is dfferent, and I think as we mature as a product, you'll see that difference come out more and more."

What do you think of O'Briens quotes and the linked Polygon article?

Poll Results from this morning of users still having server related issues in NBA 2K15.

With the release of NBA 2K15, the team at 2K Sports and Visual Concepts promised a much improved experience when connecting online. After NBA 2K14 suffered with connectivity issues throughout most of the game's life cycle, we were told that 2K's top engineers had spent the entire NBA 2K15 development cycle working on network infrastructure. What has been delivered, at least so far, is nothing short of a disaster.

Attempts to connect to the 2K servers and to other users have been met with nothing but frustration through the first two weeks of the game's release. While the experience has been fraught with frustration, it has slowly began to improve over the last week.

However, major issues still persist.

The NBA 2K15 servers are apparently online and working, according to the official page, but many PlayStation 4 (some Xbox One) users in the OS community and Twitter, including myself, have been having issues connecting to them, some have had this same issue since Monday.

On the PlayStation 4, you can hit the "Triangle" button to manage your files, by hovering over the MyCAREER tab. While that does resolve the issue for some users, it doesn't work for everyone. If you can't connect to the servers, you have no access to MyTEAM.

While this is a major concern for those that are affected, there are others that have lost VC and 2K Support hasn't exactly been helpful. Maybe the upcoming patch will fix these issues, maybe not. The only real details that have been revealed deal with users getting booted out of The Park.

Here are just a few comments on Twitter, please post what you are seeing.
