    Football Thread 2018/19

    PSG look so much more balanced when they don't have to squeeze Neymar and/or Cavani into the line up. Class above.
  2. Not convinced the disc format was what held back GTA from appearing on the platform. The install base and perceived demographic of the player base probably had more to do with it. I was peeved we still got DVD sized boxes for the games - the dinky Japanese boxes were far more in keeping with the aesthetic.

    I got him in 2 weeks ago. Sorry everyone.

    Jesse Lingard's article on Players' Tribune is well worth a read: https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/jesse-lingard-i-promise-you-never-read-a-story-like-this-mate That Roma photo.

    Should have gone Sane instead of De Bruyne and picked the wrong moment to get on the Digne bandwagon, but otherwise a good week. 79 + whatever Alli returns.

    I've decided to risk my wildcard after getting stuck with no FTs and a couple of injuries. Pretty much settled on a team now but torn between Sane and De Bruyne for my City attacking slot. Sane is in form, but will be under threat from Mendy's imminent return. De Bruyne looked sharp coming on against Wolves and is City's most important player on his day, but it's difficult to know how gently he'll be eased back into the regular starting XI.

    Do people still use DVDs?

    I still have them, but I limit my collection to my all-time favourite films that I know I'll want to return to. In recent weeks I've watched The Hustler, Die Hard and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I doubt I'd have been able to revisit any of those on Netflix. For about a year when I was living on my own I had an unlimited subscription to Cinema Paradiso and would be watching 4 films a week, working my way through all the classics (I miss those days!). There's no way I'd have been able to enjoy so many great films through Netflix or other streaming services alone.

    The Man Utd Thread

    I've said it before but I preferred watching us under LVG. We could actually keep possession, were difficult to score against, had the semblance of an identity tactically, developed young players (who seem to be regressing under Mourinho) and were very competitive in top 4 games. He was also a much more sympathetic and professional manager than Mourinho. Obviously that last season of his was a let down with the CL group stage exit and missing out on the top 4 on goal difference, but we still won the FA Cup (first major trophy post Fergie). There's no way we're getting that close to the top 4 this season, will be lucky to get beyond R16 of the CL, and there's no chance we're winning the FA Cup. All the while we have a manager who is openly undermining the confidence of players and taking the team backwards.

    87 with Mitrovic still to play. Can barely believe it. Only issue is I can't see Sterling staying a differentiator for me for long!

    Game Boy & GB Advance Appreciation Thread

    It's decent, technically impressive for managing to squeeze an RTS onto the GBA. Takes some liberties with the history - you fight monsters as well as armies! Word of warning: I didn't get especially far into it as I found it difficult figuring out what to do without an English translation. Looking around, there seems to be an English patch out there now though if you can play ROMs.

    Same. That's twice now I've benched an injury doubt player fearing an 85th minute substitute cameo only for them to not only start but bloody score. Lesson well and truly learned!
  13. The closer sports games get to simulating the real thing, the worse they get. This is why ISS98 plays better than modern FIFA/Pro Evo, and Mario Tennis (N64) is the best tennis game.
  14. My top 10 would look something like: 1. Deus Ex 2. Super Mario World 3. Far Cry 2 4. Grand Theft Auto III 5. Metroid Prime 6. Ico 7. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening 8. F-Zero X 9. Jet Set Radio 10. Metal Gear Solid 2 On personal impact, not necessarily how they hold up today.

    Nintendo Direct - 13th September (11 PM BST, 12 AM CEST)

    It's also worth saying that we've not had an F-Zero game that supports online play, which for me makes it a very different proposition. Just imagine the carnage of 30 player races - it's easy to imagine a hugely passionate online community springing up around the game that enabled it through word of mouth to reach a much bigger audience than X or GX.
