While it would be ideal to have an online franchise/booker option with multiple friends, one of the coolest additions to WWE 2K15 could be the use of friends’ created characters in the MyCareer mode. The “invasion” concept only supports five characters per career, but this is something that I think will really add some personality and randomness to the story-based offering. Reality is already bent by having your own created character in the world, so why not add some additional wackiness with your friends in the mix?

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.
