EpicBattleCry - Evaluating EA's Access Program

We kick off your work week with a discussion about EA's recently announced Access program courtesy of a question from Brutal Brainwork (@BrutalBrainwork). Does the service offer enough to entice Xbox One users to dish out the dough or could it be improved before players part with their cash? We discuss on this Monday edition of EpicBattleCry!

Sony has said that they passed on EA Access because it's not good value. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/07/30/sony-ea-acces...

I would not support EA or Microsoft for a long while but I agree with DK. Subscriptions to everything are taking the fun out of it. A one-stop shop is preferred through PSN or XBL but even still I'm not going all digital for bluray movies or bluray games due to infrastructure and ownership. Buffering can still be a problem and bandwidth caps may come into reality in the US. Also, I assume somewhere in the online terms of service that we will never own anything that is not physical through a brick and mortar.

Great discussion. Longer is not a bad thing

Paid $40 for a 1 year subscription to PS Plus. That's $3.33 a month. That's a better value than EA Access, not only for the price but the benefits. Besides, EA's games don't cater to my interests. So no thank you EA.

My life as a Sim (part 3)

So many things have happened since our last talk. I don't even know where to start. Well, maybe i should start with the good news...

Me and Maaike are expecting a baby. Remco Jr. is going to have a little brother or sister. I think it will motivate him to do better a little bit. He hasn't been doing too well at school. We try to stimulate him as much as possible. Help him with his homework, teach him about music.. you know. It's not that he's failing but he's no Einstein that's for…
