    Gaming grudges

    I absolutely hate EA. I'm not certain that's a grudge in the sense your meaning but it's definitely one to me. This recent stuff with 'surprise mechanic' not loot boxes is icing on the cake. What better than to try and hide gambling in children. Games should be about fun but literally the whole reason for EA to exist is to work out a method to sell more loot boxes/ packs. The game is entirely secondary.
  2. I agree skull,. The more accessible it is the more likely people will get involved so went rtype is it's everywhere.
  3. Shadow of war/Shadow of Mordor for me. There are loads of skills which make the game great as you mow waves of orc fodder down but it takes so many skill points that you're 10 hours in before you have the good stuff and it's 2-3 hours before you can even counter.
  4. I have to say that I like a box. On older games it's quite often down to art style on the boxes as graphics weren't considered a draw enough. I wouldn't spend hundreds just for the box though. I try to keep all purchases under 15 quid because if I decide I don't want to keep it I'm not going to lose a fortune on it.
  5. I just put desert strike on the snes on instead of tidying it up like I was planning to. It's still really good and holds up well. Tbh I prefer the 16 bit era games to the 32 bit ones like Soviet and nuclear strike.
  6. I had to resort to emulation on the 3ds as it's handy to be able to play this on the couch. Anyway it felt pretty basic to me. I understand things being simpler can sometimes good but I felt this was a bit limited. For example if I compare this to Aladdin on the same system Aladdin in my opinion is a far better game. But I'd say the underlying mechanics are pretty similar.
  7. You sure there is a go fast button on sonic 1? I don't remember it until at least 2 or 3.
  8. I may have to resort to emulation as I've watched 2 copies of this on the mega drive go for over 15 quid on eBay. But more than I was looking to pay just to have a quick play of it.
  9. What is this available on in its original version? I.e. do I need a mega drive or a maatersystem? I had toyed with picking up a MD. Is that my best option?
  10. Tbh I just gave up with the objectives. I played one game with the Dutch league players and trying to force assists to league one players and it was everything I hate about FIFA, players not moving, no runs, missed everything. Gave up as I'm not going to play and already frustrating in a manner that I hate. A tots player only save me about 40k anyway.
  11. Yeah online seasons is fine. Only the futswap Dutch needs rivals
  12. It's a funny game this. I was promoted up to div 3 and of the dozen or so games I've played I have won more than I lost so it's probably about my lever however it takes far longer to find games and some then have atrocious lag as the match making is getting laxer. I can see why people just relegate themselves to 5/6 as at least you can play a game that feels somewhat responsive. Also I bought birthday bale as his stats looked great but I just couldn't get him working. Bit of a shame for 1.3 mil.
  13. I have flashback Ibra in the team on 8 chem and he is a beast but not sure 2 ibras upfront would be ideal. Ibra is 5 star 4 star as well. I'm in no rush so I'll have a think.
  14. Loan is expired I think it I would have done.
  15. How is mprime van basten? I have the players in my club to complete him untradeable and I threw sol Campbell into his icon section a while ago as sol Campbell was the worst player I had used all FIFA. I'm not sure I should do it as I don't want another sol Campbell player I don't want to use.
  16. I'm not the best player in the world so that will contribute but I had a game where he didn't score in 10 shots on goal. All I could do was have chuckle.
  17. Genuine question. Anyone here who used CR7 think he is a total letdown? I've bought and sold him twice as everyone raves about him but although he gets into great positions he misses loads for me. Griezmann on the other hand is clinical as anything. He averages more than a goal a game. Just rng? Griezmann even wins more headers from goal kicks than ronaldo. Tbh I could put Henry in the same bracket. Fantastic positioning but just not as clinical as I would expect within 18 yards. I'd say it was me if griezmann didn't bury everything.
  18. I played this on the mega drive collection on the PS3 last night. Tbh I recon I enjoyed playing this way more than most of the newer games I have played recently. I burned through credits but it was simple, engaging and was done in about an hour. I'd take a lot more of this over newer games.
  19. I feel a lot of the film's in here aren't the worst films people have ever seen. At least they have decent production values and most hade some attempt at delivering a visual experience. Mine would be going overboard with Adam Sandler. It's not funny, they can't act and it has no idea what it's doing. It's like a 12 year olds film with the budget of the 12 year olds birthday party and I have plenty of time for Adam Sandler.
  20. Aye, you get more used to it you can move away. I tried to stick with my team, not always being much use though.
  21. I played my first 5 or 6 games of this and it's pretty unforgiving as a beginner as if you don't know how to get weapons you get mowed down immediately if you drop into a high tier loot area. Which you inevitably do as you have no idea where you are going and just follow the rest. Also as a solo player on public no one plays as a team or its kids that go afk or sit outside the circle. It's got a steep curve this game.
  22. It's not so much an adapter as a cable splitter I believe. Dell sold a lot of these so likely other box shifters did as well. It'll split into dual DVI /VGA based on what cable is attached.
  23. I'll try installing tonight. Suspect I'll be pretty terrible
