    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    I didn't know the extreme levels in Trials HD and Evolution were meant to be near impossible for most people so committed to finishing a few. Now I'm more aware i give up as soon as i reach a steep incline, a gap and a high platform. I'm no closer to making it however many dozens of attempts i have. I watch videos of people executing ninja levels of skill and balance on extreme tracks like I'd watch Lionel Messi play football. I remember a F Zero GX story mode mission on hardest where you had to dodge walls at the highest speed and feeling like i'm at my limit of effort and memorization and reaction. I got annoyed at the game for the perfection it was expecting.

    The Man Utd Thread

    lol De Gea after every save gives a look of a badass. No shouting at defenders for allowing the opportunity for them to have a shot, but just a deadly stare and spit on to the pitch.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Every time United score Solksjaer, Carrick and Phelan all jump up with their arms in the air and along with the other assistants all hug each other in celebration. It's awesome to see and I'm not going to get bored of the tv cameras showing it. They all appear equally engaged in the tactical approach, and of equal status.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Yeah me too. It's necessary to me to prioritize certain players and establish some kind of strong 11 rather than it seeming like names picked out of a hat every week. Lukaku was always better as a sub anyway, with his direct running power against tired legs, for West Brom definitely. It's a long time since then but he's not improved much. At his still young age and with transfers inflating over the last few years it might be a similar fee if he were to be sold.

    PES 2019

    I made two friends! Watford I've found are a really good online team. Tried Deeney up front who is strong and makes runs but missed chance after chance. So Gray goes up front and is ace. Did a run on the outside, defender near into the box. Pulled back then again so it was a double back pull of the ball in L shape then quickly poked the ball past the keeper. Saving formations in edit is a way to get around the pitiful 3 slots allowed. Success and Deulofeu on the wings are devastating. Pereyra technically superb, Cleverley very solid. Foster decent keeper and does the side volley kick out. Any keeper that just does the high up and down kick out is a big negative. Just end up not getting it past the box. Palace are a team that i want to be good with. Think Hodgson is doing better attacking wise. Player attributes are similar to Watford but it seems to be how the wide forwards makes runs, I'm getting in behind relentlessly with Watford but not other teams. Like Everton are really strong, Richarlison is so good, but Walcott is pretty stiff and Lookman on the left not as good as Success. I had a surprising run with spurs, another team i always used to lose with. Son and Moura transform them and Alli as centre mid is brilliant. So Eriksen left attacking, Lamela right attacking. There are forwards who make runs and can power past defenders, like Lukaku, but they're all or nothing. Their turning and niftness isn't good enough. Kane doesn't have the pace to outrun defenders but his shot power makes up for it. Online there's such a variety of teams being picked. It used to be 7 games out of 10 was against Bayern. The strong teams aren't so dominating. I used to play with Stoke against Bayern and have to put my all in to win. I'd say Juventus are the pick of ones looking to win every game like a machine. Then PSG. If I'm playing with a 500 rated team against them i do expect to lose. Eventually Ronaldo will be too quick, shot power too much. Then i can't score enough. Or they score a header. Barcelona are hard to get right. They're like a team for experts. You can play and never create a chance. Messi is invisible. Suarez is like Lukaku. There's a hole left of defence and you're not even playing Alba so what gives. I had a few games of free flowing brilliance..and then nothing. Getting 6 wins in a row shouldn't be too difficult. Trying to do these raking vertical through balls where the forward doesn't get in behind, he protects the ball all the way and carries on running diagonally but doesn't need to turn. So just shoot forward in direction. West Ham are similar to Watford. Wilshire is an upgrade. Hard to know on forward line up. Real Madrid are like Barcelona. I had a period on pro evo 2016 where as Madrid the play was devastating, Bale would receive all the horizontal lay offs into space and rocket the ball into the top corner. Can't do that at far distances anymore. Used to play with centre attacking mid though. Benzema is pretty good, but you want to score Bale thunder bastards don't you? Really use the power. Vardy at Leicester is still great. England are very good too. A few options. Sterling for City is great at getting in behind and then Lingard, Rashford. With Kane up front, Vardy too. Alli resumes in the middle.

    To be Juventus' 2nd highest paid player like Ramsey you only have to be on £140,000 a week? This seems odd because I've been watching Sunderland Till I Die...Rodwell was on £70,000 a week from 2014...then in the Championship doing nothing earning £70k a week while Dybala was being one of the best young footballers in the world winning multiple titles for the most successful team in Italy. According to an article in August 2018 which confirmed the annual wages, Dybala is on 5.5m euros a year....£95,000 a week. nooo surely not. Highest wage bill in Italy though ! Ronaldo on £522,000 a week... i mean i knew what was it QPR had a higher wage bill than Athletico Madrid but.

    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    What happened to Jordon Ibe? What is happening to Jordon Ibe? What is Jordon Ibe? 23 years old is not even young when Sterling is 24 (also exact same birthday). Not noticed him play but really MOTD highlights of Bournemouth matches are all i have to go on. At the time his composure, physicality, powerful shot and confidence while not an upgrade on Sterling (obviously) it did seem he had real quality. Watching English talent burst through and disappear into insignificance is so disappointing.

    By Christmas in 2015 i thought; Leicester can win the league but won't because Man City are like an unstoppable machine*. I don't remember that season as more than between those two teams, but looking back Chelsea and Arsenal were in it still by March. *Silva's metronomic influence is just enduring, any game not yet won the pressure is increased gradually, as incisive balls are threaded through to slip in players in behind the defence and eventually Aguero waiting for the cut back is too sharp. Kind of the same tonight. Now the other newer Silva has the same consistency through a match. Both have similar fixtures left. Both play Chelsea at home, Man United away, Everton away. Liverpool you'd have to say have the harder fixtures overall, they play Spurs at home while City play Arsenal at home. Bayern as opposed to Schalke. Liverpool have to play Leicester at home and an improved Southampton away in early April when they'll still be fighting. This run is brutal: Bayern at home. 5 days later: Man United away. 3 days later: Watford at home. 3 days later: Everton away. 7 days later: Burnley at home. 4 days later: Bayern away. Man City also play Everton away around the same time. Is it silly to say Liverpool winning the league might hinge on winning that game. That derby is always tight with few goals, a few exceptions aside. It begins tight, stays that way, goals look like they will never happen. Already if Liverpool do win the league there's numerous 'moments', the freak last minute derby goal and the equally as unprobable Sturridge wonder strike vs Chelsea, that's the 4 points right there...

    Rare

    Rare. I always forget Perfect Dark Zero exists. Had been out 3 years by the time i got a 360 and not once did i ever have the inclination to buy it all the times i saw it in shops for £2.50. I didn't play any of their 360 games, what's wrong with me? There's some interesting documentaries about Rare on YouTube if anyone has not yet caught them.

    PES 2019

    Yeah so i play this a lot. *is smitten* My issues with super keepers isn't there anymore. If you're running ahead you just angle your run and shoot low ahead. Still can't score from corners really ever, or high crosses. But..yeah. I've learnt to not say anything again. Until the next game is released. The play can be orgasmic. Chipping over a defence for a first volley or nonchalant touch down and slide pass keeper. I did that online and the other player did that thing where you watch the replay then let the countdown to kick off go all the way. It was literally a Scholes like outside of boot chip on edge of box to Vardy. Think of that one in Champions League to Van Nistelrooy. Scored some fabulous goals. A corner crossed to Pogba who leap chested it near post then backhealed the ball to far post and in from a near impossible angle. It doesn't sound possible. The backhealing to the penalty spot for a runner is the best. I'm getting into casually rolling the ball horizontally as a through ball that's a soft gentle tap just out of reach of opposition. You move up the pitch but slow the game right down. I want to play someone on here, as though it's on my videogame bucketlist. (i don't have one) I want to play someone so exceptional i lose again and again until i eventually win. PS4 ID: aehii

    Why are Nintendo fans so annoying?

    Why are Nintendo fans so annoying?

    I don't even know how you are interpreting my points. They're all pretty obvious and reasonable. I think I often make the mistake of assuming people who are invested in videogames and grew up being obsessed by them as I did want to be surprised every now and again.

    Why “all console” fanboys are the worst

    I hate spending ages building a rollercoaster on RCT, dodging all the shops and footpaths, planting the entrance and exit and devising a mazing path out of there, which all feels like an achievement in itself. Then watching as the first cart has a go at it, ahh it just about makes that loop, all around in one piece. ill just wait for the ratings to come in. 3.4 excitement, 11.7 nausea wtf?

    I'd rather they were no consoles and all games were available via download.

    Why are Nintendo fans so annoying?

    I sense sarcasm here. I don't know why this is so hard to accept. You could just say; yeah I agree however these games are also neat. Switch and the cardboard robot suits represent excelling in r&d and hardware, as i put in my post. Personally, they don't appeal to me, i care about pure game design. Arms and Splatoon do not represent anything new tonally. Metroid, F-Zero, Majora's Mask do. They are vivid examples of Nintendo not holding on to their Disneye-esque wholesome image like it entirely defines them. I do not believe they would have been allowed to happen under Satoru Iwata as Hiroshi Yamauchi let the talent get on with whatever they wanted. The need for a game to sell so much and appeal to everyone compromises exploration, and people will say the cost of development changes things dramatically in terms of justifying a game only appealing to 250,000 players, but Nintendo could get a better balance. They make new consoles yet don't ever produce enough new games for them, again and again. Arms is a fighting game and Splatoon a shooting game, in Nintendo makeup. I'd argue Pikmin and Luigi's Mansion are more inspired and show what Nintendo can do.

    Why are Nintendo fans so annoying?

    Yeah, no. Heh i'm a fan of Nintendo, in theory. It's that they are held up as the bastions of creativity when they are as corporate and greedy as they come and allow the pursuit of growth and profit to override the creative tendencies to broaden their tonal range in terms of pure game design, and not in terms of r&d and innovative hardware which they excel at. Fans become defensive as though you're attacking the concept of gameplay for all ages and colourful graphics - Nintendo can signify that and still push into more interesting realms, as they did with Pikmin and Luigi's Mansion. But the Nintendo that pursued Metroid, F-Zero, Majora's Mask wouldn't now. Nintendo fans are the type to genuinely think current Mario Kart is the pinnacle of the genre, how sad is that? Nintendo really commodify and contain 'creativity' in a polished shiny box. They simultaneously close the door on what might be possible whilst suggesting they've reaching as far as they can, nullifying the player into a passive acceptance.

    Arsenal fans are pretty annoying though. All this The Arsenal, the superiority complex, the unpleasant vitriol directed at Spurs which is never reciprocated. Tbh i want Liverpool to not only win the league, but go unbeaten too. Arsenal fans will latch on to those years of Doing Things The Right Way and The Invincibles for several centuries if they could.
