Would probably be more pumped for this if my Sharks made it to the playoffs :(
I hear you, being a Flyer's fan and watching the Flyer's handle the Penguin's over and over again but NOT make the Playoff's just steams me. I'm hoping the Pens slide out of the 8th spot. (I hate on a rivalry level only!)
As a fellow Flyer's, I completely agree! Sucks not making the playoffs, but kicking the crap out of the pens everytime they meet eases the pain a bit😃 Like they way they're fighting in the end here... EA access has been tremendous value
I totally disagree. Go Pens! Philly can suck it! Oh, and in case you like the Eagles, go Cowboys!!!
Rangers fan here but we have a common enemy in the Penguins. So, I guess that makes us friends. As far as NHL 15 coming to the vault, I'm excited. I didn't buy it cause of the downgrades from last season plus I haven't bought a sports game in a few years. Subscribed to EA Access for the same reason though. I was hoping NHL would eventually make it to Access.
@ Psylentkiller LGR!!!!
Sharks were extremely disappointing after such a great start they just imploded.
They always seem to implode late, which sucks because Marleau and Thornton are beasts. Sharks churn out goalies though, unlike my Flyer's who haven't had a good goaltender since..... ...Bobrov.....Bouche....uuumm m.......Hextall.
Could be worse. They could have been the Leafs.
game is trash!!!! They really sh*t the bed on this one, by far the purchase I regret the most this gen. They had it for like 30$ on PS4 and I felt robbed!!!! Geeez NHL13 on the 360 blows this away!
It's definal a step back for people who bought it outright. But considering I already have EA access, I'm not gonna complain about getting it at no extra charge.
oh yeah of course! for free I'd be all over it too. But from a guy thats been playing NHL games forever, this game is a big middle finger to the fan base.
Listen to you guys.... I am in Leaf-nation land.... You know nothing of this suffering thing! 😰
I am a Jets fan so for once this might be a great playoffs. Just hope the Kings get knocked out tonight.
Good luck to them..... Better since ya traded that guy....
"This year's the year" Since 1967.
That is followed by, theres always next year........ At least they they play golf in Florida early.....
Yeah Kanecer to our locker room is gone and we got a blockbuster deal out of it. Hopefully your Leafs get out of those monster contracts as well.
My Canucks have definitely had a bounce back season. Looking forward to getting NHL for free too.
Cool i hate when people say EA access it not worth it. Be downloading this have a try at it.
Who says it isn't worth it? It is the best subscription service I have ever payed for and I am sure I will be a lifetime customer :)
Phenomenal game. Dumped like 100 hours into it
Did we play the same game? Phenomenal is hardly the word I would choose to describe it. Looked pretty, but the commentary team got old really fast, and the career mode was awful. Too many steps backwards in my opinion.
Your just a hater.
Exactly!!!! I expected so much from this game, especially after they skipped a year on next gen consoles. But it was terrible!!!!! Online team play is so so so bad! The hitting sucks you can just plow anyone over with no penalties at all! Last gen 12 and 13 put this game to shame.
@Dudebro90 No, I just expect more from yearly sports titles. NHL 2014 showed a lot of improvement, while keeping important features intact. 2015 took everything that worked from previous versions and dumped them in the penalty box. Be A Pro was the most requested feature for several years, and they finally added it a couple of years back, but it was flawed. Introducing the ability to simulate your time on the bench made it feel more realistic. Ice time is earned. The better player you are, the better line you're going to be on, and the more time on the ice you'll get. Having an authentic 20 minute period while being able to sim through the time you're not active made the game more realistic, and made you feel rewarded for earning a spot on the 1st line, and earning a spot on the PP or PK. To take that away destroys any sense of authenticity, and they knew it. Several times throughout the year they talked about possibly patching in a better Be A Pro system, but eventually all the talk was just that.
i'm impressed how fast these yearly sports games are coming to the vault , well done EA !
Damn, I haven't owned a hockey game since the Sega Genesis. Will put this game to good use.
The faces on the players in this game are horrendous for this advanced technology. However the gameplay is so fun. Especially when playing with a friend
I'm downloading this right now. Thanks EA.
Sweet, as for guys complain about your teams , be glad. Am stuck between a Ranger and Devils
Ea access is amazing period one of the best deals in gaming right now
NBA LIVE MADDEN NHL UFC Umm ya Thnx MS and EA!
BALLS!!!! I was hoping I could get until after playoffs so I could trade it in. Now I'll likely get a whole $2 credit instead of $15 or $20.
EA access doesn't appear to have much affect on trade in values... I still got a pretty penny for battlefield 4 when I turned it in..
really? tha could be great news
Really! Best buy will give you $17 for NHL right now, on Xb1 or PS4. EA access is only available on one of those platforms, but they have the same trade in value. That tells me EA access has no effect on the resale values. The same goes for Madden. It's been in Access for a month but best buy will give you $14 for it, on either platform. So you can safely trade it in within your acceptable range. If I were you, I'd get EA access and stop trading your games in. Instead sell them yourself at resale price. GameStop is selling NHL 15 used for $55. If you sold your copy of NHL today, you could use the money to pay for a year of Access, you'd still have access to NHL 15, and you'd have a bunch of other games to play as well. And it all would have cost you a net of $35. It's a remarkable savings. I do this with all EA games I want at launch. Buy the disk at launch, then trade the game in when it hits the vault. EA access is basically paying for itself.
Madden 15 Madden 25 NBa Live UFC Plants VS Zombies Need For Speed Battlefield 4 NHL Peggle 2 30 bucks a year(2.50 a month) or 5 dollars a month. I sold my physical copy of Battlefield 4 at Bestbuy for 28 buck to pay for EA Access for a year. Got 20 for Madden 15 after they added it to the vault. This is the greatest value in the history of gaming. I am glad that Microsoft didn't decide for me how I should spend my own money. They are trying to cripple the used game industry and probably feel any money is better than no money at all.
Don't forget Madden 25' and Fifa 14'. :) I think Titanfall will be added soon as well.
I doubt it, maybe if Titanfall 2 is announced for spring of 2016.
I think they mentioned somewhere during the launch of EA Access that Titanfall wouldn't be a part of it.
