    <p>Since NHL 09 (the last NHL game ever made for PC)…..I've been holding a grudge against EA for paywalling NHL behind console ecosystem. We are going on 12 full years of no PC version. And look at this… they get a chance to release it for cloud on PC, and they still keep it paywalled to console. </p><p>Thanks for nuthin Ea</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#621861">In reply to skyczy08:</a></em></blockquote><p>I hate EA for the same reason. Still wish they made it for PC simply for the mods, they were amazing.</p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#621916">In reply to staganyi:</a></em></blockquote><p>Agreed. With the resurgence in PC gaming, here's hoping another developer wants to make a mod-able hockey game for PC, with modern graphics and mods. No NHL Licensing needed. Just a hockey game… A guy can dream?</p><p><br></p><p>There are a bunch of Hockey games on the ios and Android App stores. Lots of creativity too. Seeing these developers with this creative enthusiasm is giving me hope for the future.</p><p><br></p>

    <p>GTA V on cloud is amazing. I wonder if you need a magnifying glass to play it on a smartphone screen</p>

    <p>It's about time, been waiting for Xbox to land The Show…a prime example of why exclusives has hurt gaming Xbox fans only had RBI baseball which was okay but The Show is on same level as madden and 2k hoops. </p>
