In Topic: NHL 15

I just discovered, on the Xbox One version of NHL 15, if you unlock the achievement titled "Home Ice Advantage" by winning 25+ home games in one season of be a GM mode (You can select a top team like the Kings and sim the entire season and have this unlock easily) the achievement art is a back row view of Joe Louis Arena ice, with the Wings championship banners, Scoreboard, the giant hanging purple octopi, and full view of the ice.

 

What you can now do is make achievement art as your dashboard background, so you can select this pic and have Joe Louis Arena with Red Wings goodness as your backdrop. When you go to Apps and Achievements, click on NHL 15 and find this unlocked achievement and hit A on it. What follows is a menu to "Set as background" to make this picture your permanent dashboard art.

Nice GDT - But I think you (accidentally) granted Jonathon Bernier's biggest wish...

Wow, how the heck did I do that?

 

After further investigation, Bernier and Bishop are files next to each other in my player pic folder, I must have accidentally clicked on Bernier instead and the blue on white played tricks on my eyes and I posted it without even realizing it. 

 

Good catch :lol:

It's primarily voice communication. I remember back in the Dreamcast days playing Phantasy Star Online with a keyboard in my lap and typing to players because there was no in-game voice support.

 

I can understand the big change, being a bit intimidated to speak online with other people who you don't know, but you adapt and learn how fun it can be. You don't even really need to talk to play online, you can just have the experience and never plug a mic into your controller. 

 

As far as security concerns go, you are at higher risk every time you get on your computer opposed to connecting to a video game console online. They are very, very secure as long as you password lock your account and it isn't something blatantly obvious. There are a lot of misconceptions, especially during the recent holiday "attacks" which were nothing more than a bunch of nerds signing in a few million accounts all at once crashing the servers, no accounts were taken and no one lost profiles, it just interrupted the quality of the overall service. 

 

Back on topic, i'm playing Battlefield 4 and Titanfall a lot lately, both online on the One.

Great console, its good for playing with friends since Xbox and Ps4 don't make multiplayer games AT ALL anymore

Do you mean offline multiplayer? Like splitscreen? If so that makes sense, otherwise there are less single player games than there are online multiplayer games on PS4 and Xbox One by a long shot.
