NHL 15 are set for a release on the 12th of September (for PS4, PS3, 360 and Xbox One).
I'm of course rather disappointed over the fact that EA won´t release NHL 15 to PC. But besides that, i´m rather excited about NHL 15. Mainly because i haven't played a NHL game for several years now. But also because NHL 15 seems to offer the best ice hockey video game experience to date.
So which format of NHL 15 will i pick up? It leans towards the PS4 version in my case. And yes, i will play as Chicago Blackhawks ;)
About NHL 15:
EA SPORTS NHL® 15 is the first title in a new generation of hockey videogames that boldly changes everything you know about the award winning franchise. Experience the hard hitting chaos and unpredictability of the sport as real-world physics are extended to all 12 players on the ice, as well as the puck itself.
Look, move, play and think like a real hockey player with all new authentic player modelling and an evolved arsenal of tools, including the Superstar Skill Stick and Vision AI that allow for an unprecedented level of control and elevated player intelligence.
Take in the emotion of every play as you immerse yourself in authentic arenas across the National Hockey League, in front of a full house of fans created with 9,000 dynamic and individual crowd models, the most ever in a sports videogame.
Finally, witness the most realistic broadcast package to date, as NHL 15 overhauls the look of the game with the new NBC SPORTS Game Day Presentation featuring the commentary team of Mike 'Doc' Emrick and Eddie Olczyk, alongside TSN analyst Ray Ferraro. From the ice, to the fans, to the presentation, NHL 15 brings to life the sights, sounds and feel of the fastest team sport on the planet like no other game before.
Microsoft is finally rolling out an update for the Xbox One, which will put it into the spotlight that it has needed for quite some time. It’s no secret that Microsoft is trailing far behind Sony when it comes to sales of the Next-Gen consoles, but it shouldn’t have taken this long to have these features on the new console.
Media Player app:
You’ll be able to finally play Media Files from an attached USB device. With this new media player app – DLNA support for your home media servers will be coming soon. Xbox One will support more formats than Xbox 360, including support for dozens of new file formats like Mpeg 2 TS, animated gifs and MKV, which will be added by the end of this year.
You can be the leader of your party, with the new party leader setting. As the party leader, you can change whether the party requires invitations or not, and you can remove others from the party anytime you wish. The update also lets you see what activities everyone in your party is doing and who is playing in the same game with you. It also allows you to being able to quickly perform common actions like muting, joining, or sending game invites. Your matches will be set up, and ended must faster now!
You can now post status messages from the Activity Feed and comments, or share items from both your Activity Feed and Game Clips. Along with the new comment and share features, a personalized Activity Feed has been added to your profile and messages have been updated to a new layout supporting a full conversation view. Additionally, we are adding the ability to record game clips directly from the Now Playing bar.
“Xbox On” capabilities in New regions:
Australia, Canada (French), Italy, Spain, and Mexico will have the ability to use the “Xbox On” Kinect voice command to power on their consoles when they’re in connected standby (Instant On) mode.
OneGuide comes to new countries:
Brazil, Mexico, Austria, and Ireland will have the ability to configure live TV listings and it will be available to all customers in these four countries. Also coming to these markets is the ability to use OneGuide and the Universal Remote Control in SmartGlass.
Boot to TV:
Now Xbox One owners will be able to set their console to boot directly to television when coming out of connected standby.
Bandwidth Usage Display:
Bandwidth Usage will show users how much bandwidth their Xbox One is consuming over a period of time, a useful tool for those who want to track against bandwidth caps set by ISPs in certain markets. It also helps so you won’t experience lag during crucial moments when you’re leveling up.
A new option to save Avatar Gamerpics to users’ OneDrive. This doesn’t really look all that appealing, but at least you have the option to care about its inclusion into the app.
Users will be able to choose multiple GameDVR clips to delete at once in the Upload app. This will free up crucial storage space for those die hard moments when you get three headshots in a row.
Microsoft has already stated that it plans to continue this trend of updating the Xbox One, and separating the OS of its consoles from its other devices. The good thing is, if they unify the devices for ease of access without over doing it, we’ll see a spike in sales, and productivity for gamers, and PC enthusiasts.
What do you think of Microsoft’s new updates on the Xbox One? Let us know!

Hiro and Bayma are now a part of the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box family.
More and more famous characters are entering the world of Disney Infinity 2.0. And this time it´s Hiro and Bayma (from the upcoming movie " Big Hero 6") that joins the Disney Infinity crew. That makes one wonder who Disney will add in the future?
Could one hope for a playable version of Robin Williams? (Peter Pan).
Today, Disney Interactive announced that Hiro and Baymax from the upcoming action-packed movie Big Hero 6 will be entering the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box. Fans will be able to use Hiro’s mind-power and Baymax’s super strength, along with hundreds of items, locations, props, vehicles and more from across the Disney and Marvel universes to create all-new adventures born from the imagination of players.
Hiro: From the heart of San Fransokyo into 2.0 Toy Box comes the brilliant robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who created Big Hero 6. The inventor of mind-controlled microbots uses his brain as his most powerful weapon.
Baymax: There is no robot better suited for the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box than the plus-sized inflatable Baymax. While this robot might have a huggable side, he definitely packs a hard armor shell. His Kung Fu fighting moves can ward off even the fiercest of enemies. His rocket fist, super strength and thrusters are unmatched.
There will also be a Big Hero 6 Chem Capsule Power Disc, which allows players to create a cloud of frost that freezes enemies right in their tracks.
Disney Infinity 2.0 will be fully localised in Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish. Scheduled for release in Nordic retail stores on September 19th 2014. Disney Infinity 2.0 has a PEGI 7 rating. Additional Disney and Marvel characters will be announced in the coming months.
About Disney Infinity
Disney Infinity is an interactive gaming platform where players have unprecedented freedom and endless opportunity to create stories and play experiences starring the beloved characters from across the worlds of Disney. Building on the success of last year’s initial launch, Disney Interactive announced that Disney Infinity’s next chapter, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, will hit stores this fall. In the all new game, players use real-world interactive figures to activate original storylines (Play Sets) in the virtual game worlds of popular Marvel franchises and create new adventures with other Disney Infinity characters in the Toy Box mode.
There´s a lot of talk about sexism and bad portrayal of women in video games. Well, i ain´t going to pretend like it´s a lie. Because it´s not. Sadly enough it´s true. But it seems like the industry are slowly changing to something better.
Like in the case with Sucker Punch inFAMOUS DLC "First Light" for example. Because in First Light you play as a strong women with super powers (Abigail "Fetch" Walker). So it´s not the normal "come and rescue me" kind of thing.
Well, let´s just say that Abigail (the women in question) are more the capable to handle things on her own.It remains to be seen whether or not First Light are a great gameplay experience or not though. The PSN version of First Light has been out since the 26th of August. But still, not that many reviews has been made so far.
So i think i wait a while before i give it a go.
About inFAMOUS: First Light:
Think of Grimoire as a multiplayer version of Heretic (mixed with some League of Legends). But with 2014 graphics and a lot of wizards.
And we have been given the great pleasure to play Grimoire. So we hope to record some gameplay videos asap =) And oh! If you like our videos (or the Grimoire down below), then don´t forget to signup for the Grimoire Alpha!
I should also point out that there will be a Kickstarter campaign for Grimoire in the near future.
We aim to combine the best of FPS with the unique classes and abilities found in MOBA games into fun and engaging wizard combat that rewards precise aim as well as strategic skills and teamwork. Although Grimoire has a total of seven planned game modes we have decided to focus primarily on our three favorites for the games initial release: Conquest, Co-Op Survival, and Arena.
The Director’s Cut cut version will be released on the 18th of September (For PC, MAC and Linux, the price will start at $14,99).
The Harebrained schemes crew are now live on site at PAX. And that of course means a lot of Shadowrun related activities for the press (and visitors alike). For starter Harebrained released a trailer for Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director’s Cut, they also announced a elease date as well (which would be September 18th).
So i think it´s safe to say that my Autumn has been saved at least. Because i haven't had the time (nor the pleasure) to play Dragonfall yet. And the Director´s cut version will offer a ton of improvements and new features.
That´s also why you should keep your eyes open for Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director’s Cut. So, don´t miss out!
