I seriously never thought I would say that, but EA has awoken the casual gamer in me again. Recently I decided to move my Xbox One out of my living room and into another location in my house, the Den (as it is labeled in my Sonos system). The den is where my computer is located as well as a 42″ TV. Obviously, the 55″ in the living room plus surround sound gives a greater overall experience, but I realized I didn’t necessarily want all of that. All i really need is my leather recliner (also in the den) and a nice HD TV. 10-15 years ago I was much more into gaming. I had all of the consoles, and was an avid PC gamer. (I’ll blame Unreal Tournament for that.) and since then my console playing has dwindled. I have an Xbox 360 in the closet which hasn’t been turned on for 4+ years, and my PS3 which I used to play fairly often hasn’t even been taken out of the box I moved it in when I bought my new house in 2013. I’ve had the Xbox One since launch, but I’ve rarely played it. I have a handful of games, and they are great, but I know spending $60 each is not worth it for me. I just don’t play it enough anymore. This is where EA comes in. EA Access… what can i say? For those of you who aren’t aware of what it is, EA Access is a monthly service which allows you to play games from their “vault”.  The vault has recently been updated with all of the ’15 sports games, and has a few others as well. This service for under $30 a year allows me to download a bunch of games I wouldn’t have purchased for $60 each, because as i said before I just don’t play them enough. Not only that, but if I decide I want to buy any other EA games, I as an Access member, will get a 10% discount. I have to admit, I didn’t realize how much I missed playing some of these games. NHL 15 for example has been a blast. I haven’t played a hockey game in easily 5+ years. On a side note, I laughed when I saw an NHL 94 control scheme available in the options. I thought to myself, “wow i loved that game”.  I didn’t use that scheme though by the way. EA is definitely not the most liked company out there, any gamer knows that. But recently they seem to have changed their image slightly. Their stocks are going up, and people seem generally pleased with this new EA Access offering (which I should point out is exclusive to the Xbox One right now). I know I am very happy with what EA is doing, so as the title states, thanks EA.  I intend on using my console for the occasional gaming session much more frequently...

Fight Me!

I came across this site yesterday and thought it was kinda fun. It’s simple and completely random but strangely addicting. lol Visit here, type your name, and fight me. It will auto generate a character or you can change it. http://stevofc.mybrute.com/ After the first fight you can set up a password to save your “brute.”

So, I finally got Warhawk

By on Feb 18, 2008 | 0 comments

I was bored the past few days and decided I wanted to buy a few games on PSN. I got Tekken 5 DR Online. Great game for just under $30. And I also downloaded Warhawk for $40. I have to say I love Warhawk, but I totally suck at it. It seems like every time I respawn (and I do that a lot because of how bad I am) I get killed almost instantly. Sometimes 32 players, or even 24, seem to be way too many people in a map at once depending on the configuration. Like I said before, I literally respawn and get the **** blown out of me instantly. I enjoy playing the game for the most part but it seems to be really frustrating that sometimes no matter what I do I get raped from all angles. I thought I would get better but my ratio seems to be getting even worse. I get a decent amount of points but I can’t seem to kill many people at all. Something about the control configuration seems too weird to me. I guess I’m just too used to playing UT3. Anyways, off to play some more. If you have the game add me (StevoFC) to your list. I’d be an easy opponent to pad your stats a...
