My familiar team of five had been waiting since August for this day, when Online Team Play would finally be patched into the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of NHL 15.

Yet last night, none of my longtime EASHL teammates came home with a new copy of NHL 15, after learning that we could not join the same lobby or send each other match invitations in this "next-gen" version of Online Team Play.

Wasn't that the whole point of Online Team Play, to begin with -- you and your boys challenging cliques from around the world? I thought so, but apparently, EA Canada thought otherwise.

Editors note: In lieu of a traditional impressions piece on the offseason, I decided to record my own thoughts as I went through the process instead so give readers an idea of what its like to play the mode from first-hand experiences.


Western Conference finals. OKC vs. San Antonio. Being a video game, this surely meant my ticket to the NBA Finals as the Thunder was punched right?

Not so fast my friend.

For those of you that were not able to connect to the NBA 2K15 servers, for the past week or so (including me), go ahead and restart your PlayStation 4, Xbox One and/or PC and fire up the game.

It should fix the issue, it definitely worked for me and according to Ronnie2K's mentions on Twitter, it looks like it worked for many more.

Good luck, let us know if it works for you.

OOTP 15 Picks Royals to Win a Tense World Series

Out of the Park Developments today announced its annual World Series Special: Out of the Park Baseball 15 for PC/Mac is 50% off ($19.99) and iOOTP Baseball 2014 for iOS is 80% off (99 cents). In addition, iOOTP’s 10-season bundles are $1.99 (regularly $4.99) and iOOTP’s all-in-one historical season pack is $14.99 (regularly $19.99).

OOTP 15 is also 50% off everywhere else the game is offered for sale, including Steam.

“After Opening Day, the start of the World Series is our favorite time of the year,” said OOTP creator Markus Heinsohn. “We expect this World Series will be an exciting one, so what better way to celebrate than by putting OOTP and iOOTP on sale?”

OOTP 15’s World Series Pick: Royals

This World Series pits a pair of closely-matched teams, as OOTP 15 showed when the series between the Giants and Royals was simmed five times. A post on the company’s new blog digs into the compiled stats and shows this could be too close to call, but with three wins in five sims, OOTP Developments predicts the Royals will be this year’s champion.

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.
