Sean Ramjagsingh, producer of NHL 15, is stopping by OS this evening for an open chat with NHL fans. In the comments below, you can ask Sean anything and he will answer as many questions as possible on the heels of his interview he did with us today.
If you havenít done so yet, weíve covered many of the basics of todayís news in our interview, that there will be no EASHL, GM Connected, OTP, or Life the Life in NHL 15. So donít be that guy who asks the question which weíve already answered! However, anything is fair game, and Sean plans to stick around for awhile and answer your questions under the EASportsNHL username.
Keep in mind that we will be patrolling the thread, cleaning up duplicate or ill-tempered posts ó keep the questions clean, constructive, and to the point. Please remember that we are enforcing a Zero Tolerance policy towards anything that isn't constructive to this discussion. Think before you reply. We want this to be a constructive and positive experience for all participants!
So with that, ask away!
Itís official: EASHL, GM Connected, OTP, and Live the Life will not be in NHL 15.
The modes which will be in the game, will include play now, Be A Pro, Be a GM, Online Vs, Hockey Ultimate Team, and NHL Moments Live. The plan, as of right now, is to deliver Online Team Play via a patch after launch.
We sat down with Producer Sean Ramjagsingh to discuss why those modes were not included and to talk about the modes which are in the game. The discussion also turns to how to the team deals with community reactions and plans for the future of the franchise, which admittedly are quite exciting. See for yourself after the jump!

The TNT Inside the NBA studio crew could be featured in NBA 2K15, as noted by SLAMonline and YompaGaming.
Hints have led many to believe it was coming, Shaq kissing LD2K during a livestream and the more obvious 2K Uncensored today, hosted by Ernie Johnson, Jr.
Whatever the case might be, we do know Ernie is involved with NBA 2K15 somehow and possibly Shaq. Whether that leads to the entire crew to be announced has yet to be determined.
Could we see the whole crew? Halftime and post-game shows? Gone Fishing? What would you like to see?
Hopefully we hear more soon.
Much like the real game of golf, creating itís digital counterpart can be difficult and frustrating, but extremely rewarding when you hit the sweet spot. Trying to emulate the tension of needing to knock a wedge close to the pin from 125 yards out in a video game is not easy, but thatís exactly what developer HB Studios is trying to do.
In a year in which video game golf fans thought they were going to be denied country club membership, a small Nova Scotian developer has jumped in to fill the void. Now the question is, have they drilled a 40-foot putt, or left just short of the cup?

It appears Xbox One users won't have CoachGlass exclusively anymore, EA Sports announced today that PlayStation 4 users will get the feature this year as well.
For those who may not be familiar with the feature, CoachGlass is a second-screen experience that is compatible with most smartphones and tablets. As EA says, "The experience is catered for the player who really wants that added layer of information about an opponent."
Here are some of the highlights, check out the video here.
- Whole New Look - The goal with the new system was to feed data that enhances the Madden game experience without distracting from the on-field action. To do this, we created a system that incorporates colorized charts to make information easily digestible.
- All About Tendencies-Another goal was to bring some balance to a CoachGlass System that was primarily a defensive tool in year one. We learned that most CoachGlass users already have a basic idea of football strategy, and want that next layer of information that keeps them one step ahead of their opponent.
- Taking the Next Step- In the first implementation of CoachGlass, users had the ability to call plays from the device but were limited to only having defensive playcall suggestions. Weíve now evened the playing field and made offensive suggestions available as well. Another small win was including the QB in the list of offensive players currently on the field.

In a recent video on Twitch, an overview of the Xbox One NHL 15 achievement list seems to indicate that neither EASHL or GM Connected are in the game. This, of course, joins the plethora of evidence indicating that EASHL and GM Connected have not made the jump onto the new generation of consoles this year. We are still expecting official news on the fate of both soon.
If you are interested in seeing the achievement list itself, check it out starting at 1 minute, 8 seconds in.
Friend of OS and Madden video creator extraordinaire Jake Berger, checks in again today with a video on how defenders fail to fully utilize the two-gap method to react to the ball in Madden NFL 15. Because defensive linemen still don't seem to be able to be responsible for more than a single gap, odd man fronts seem to be at a disadvantage against the run. We look at the footage available to us (granted, not the ideal examples) and break it all down. Check out the video and offer your thoughts on how you have successfully run a three man front in Madden to compensate for a handicapped DL.
Be sure to subscribe to Jake on YouTube. And don't forget to follow him on Twitter.
Official Video Description: Welcome to the SECOND EPISODE of my Madden 101 series. Today, we take a look at 2 gap defenders; how they are programmed in Madden, and how they operate in real life.

Adam Bhatti, PES 2015 European Brand Manager, has posted some player faces from the PC version of the game. Follow his Twitter feed for quite a few more.
Adam mentioned the PC version is a hybrid. It will have the same modes and gameplay as the PS4 and Xbox One versions with better visuals than the PS3 and 360 versions. The focus was on accessibility and quality.
The official EA Access twitter account today confirmed that the platform will only support six hours of Madden NFL 15 gameplay. Considering EA Sports Season Ticket offers Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 users access to the game for three full days, this news comes as a disappointment for Xbox One fans.
Without a Madden NFL 15 demo, EA Access and EA Sports Season Ticket is the only way consumers can play the game early. Unfortunately, EA Access is exclusive to the Xbox One, which means PlayStation 4 gamers are left out in the cold on any early access period.
While EA Access certainly has its benefits with The Vault, the sports gamer looked at the deal as a no-brainer, since it offered early access to games. However, with time limits set to just six hours of gameplay, that could deter many of them.
While EA Sports has confirmed demos for both NHL 15 and FIFA 15, we would like to hear from the community concerning the six hour gameplay limit for Madden NFL 15 on EA Access.
GoodGameBro has posted a couple of more Madden NFL 15 videos. The first one is a matchup between the New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers. It's a CPU vs. CPU match showing off the broadcast angle.
The second clip shows off the defensive camera angle with the Carolina Panthers battling it out with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Golf Club is launching on the Xbox One this week, and if you are a PC player you may have actually been playing the game for weeks as a beta-tester if you are at all excited about it. If you are a PS4 user, your time is coming later this month.
With a price tag of $34.99 as a complete digital title, are you at all excited about The Golf Club and what it is bringing to consoles? Does the course editor interest you? Cross platform-sharing features?
