    To all the xbox/PC gamers out there check out EA Access if you haven't already.

    it is a subscription service for gamers available.

    cost: AU$6.99/month or 39.99/year

    What you get:

    download and play any game in the EA Access Vault (while you have a subscription)
    10% discount on EA titles (digital download only)
    early access to new titles released by EA

    if you cancel your subscription you can no longer play the games, but can pick up where you left off when you activate it again.

    PC gamers can get an Origin Access subscription for the same price.

    PS4 gamers get nothing as Sony weren't interested in offering this service and turned EA down.

    the EA Access vault (xbox one) currently has 51 titles in the vault

    the Origin Access vault (PC) has 38 titles in the vault

    https://www.ea.com/ea-access

    there are some decent games to choose from:

    I got a year trial when i got my xbox one in about 2015 and it was great then... but only had 13 games in the vault. I'll be getting it again for sure.

    Once i've finished with Assassin Creed Origins anyway
     
  3. Yeah I keep looking at it, and I keep telling them to go **** themselves on it. They've got a lot of nerve to charge the amount they do for barely cooked games, only to charge stupid prices to get the DLCs, while offering a subscription service that requires you always be online.
     
    I'm hoping they learned their lesson with BF1 personally. COD and BF are the only ones still charging for DLCs I believe and they're getting slaughtered by Overwatch and a game that's still in Beta. The subscription is tempting though, I play very few games more than once. Could be handy for Battlefront 2 though after we all got sucked in last time......

    you could always just go the 1 month subscription for 6.99 ... if you don't like it cancel, if you think you'd want to extend it the pay for the year as it is cheaper than month to month.

    I'll probably fork out the yearly $40 as there are quite a few games in there i want to play.

  5. How does it work with DLC? Take BF1 for example. Premium costs heaps, and I will only play for like a year.
     
  6. What games are in the EA vault?

    I've fell for this trap before with an Xbox Live membership. They promised I could download and play any game in their vault so I signed up. Once I did, I went into the vault and it was nothing but rubbish. Old games that no one plays anymore.

    from what i can gather DLC is not included with your subscription fee, but you do get a 10% discount when you buy the DLC

  9. Have already checked the Origin store. BF1 not covered by the subscription. They can go EAD. PUBG is where it's at anyway. If Spwn would leave some **** loot for other people....

    "**** I need a scope or something. Anyone got a red dot?"
    "Yeah man, I've got one."
    ".......what else have you got Spwn"
    "Ahhhhh a holo a 2x a 4x and an 8x. Oh wait I've got 2 of the 4x. You want one?"
    "........."

  10. Yeah, so that's just not a good deal for mine. I get why someone who plays heaps of games would love it, but right now, I play two games, one is made by EA. A 10% discount on the EA store or Xbox store is basically fisting yourself with the left hand instead of your right. Discounts aren't discounts if the prices are inflated to cover the discount.
     
  11. "I'm set for late game I don't need to loot"
    "Alright, head for blue"
    "Lets just stop here so I can steal all the shit you have and give you the scraps I don't want"
    "I'm taking the red house"
    *spwn takes red house too*

  13. There's something to be said for what another mate of mine does. If he calls a house and you go in it, or follow him in, you will get shot. Won't kill you, but you'll cop one in the foot.

  14. Sorry to say it. But this is now a thing. @broncospwn@broncospwn - This is your warning, bitch.

    I don't shoot to hurt. I spray to kill.

  15. A few good games. But that list is mostly average, full of games no one really plays anymore.

    Who the fucks plays golf games?
     
  16. I used to play TW all the time. Great game to sit in front of after a few cones with a couple of mates. No rushing, you can get up and go for more cones between hits too.

    Funnily enough, me too. Always loved golf games. Weed might be a pre-req.

    If we weren't busting out TF2 on our PC's, we were usually into TW PGA 2010, and then 11 (Dem graphics upgrades).
