Just bought Titanfall Deluxe for $12.50 on Games with Gold, if anyone is interested. Have to work but hopefully tomorrow I can start playing it.

Thread seems dead, but I recently got an Xbox One, my gamertag is vm1138. Right now I just bought Titanfall for $12.50 on Deals with Gold. Thinking about getting EA Access. Also have Unity if anyone ever wants to play.
I agree with Frank about party games, though. Whenever family or friends gather we play Wii, not PlayStation or Xbox. The games aren't as fun to sit down and play by yourself, but for groups its a pretty great system.

Yeah, the outdoor games are still fun and all, but they're not really special.  I don't need to set aside time to watch the Winter Classic anymore because there's five other games I can catch if I miss it.


Go back to having one outdoor event a year.  It's just too much of a good thing.  I could settle for two (so the Canadian teams can have their own, since Americans seem to have no interest in watching Canadian teams) a year.


EDIT: Or, here's a crazy idea! Go all the way.  Rather than have five outdoor games a year, give every team one outdoor game a year.  I think it's best to go one way or the other.  Either make it a league-wide event or make it a once-a-season-per-team event.  That'd create a lot of games but you eliminate the problem of small-market teams not getting one and the awkward national matchups that hurt the quality of the brand.

Well, for the sake of symmetry, their first NHL opponent (that still exists) was Ottawa.  That's a ratings killer, but if it's a Stadium series game ratings won't matter.  It'll be an average game in terms of viewership anyway.


Their first NHL opponent was the Montreal Wanderers, but my bet is on Ottawa or Montreal (their second still-existing NHL opponent).


EDITED: Corrected tense usage.

I'm wondering at what point the Hawks are sick of being in every WC SS


Everyone ******* about Chicago but we're going to be in four ourselves.  09, 14, 16, and a 2017 outdoor game against Columbus, most likely.


Chicago isn't the only team going to the well repeatedly.  Let's not forget Pittsburgh, too.  In order for them to be successful they need big market teams.  And in order to be "fair" they need to have other teams play in them, too.  So its going to continue to be the Rangers, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh, LA playing random opponents in order to keep milking the outdoor game series.
