    The Game Thread!

    Must admit I'm looking forward to trying the Storm Javelin on Anthem. Decided to start with the Ranger one for whilst I get used to the game but as you level up you can unlock the others.

    Well if you liked ME Andromeda's combat you'll like Anthem's as it's very similar The only real difference is you have 4 powers instead of 3 but the 4th one(which is called an Ultimate) is more like a DAI style focus ability in that you have to wait a while for it to charge up before you can use it but it's moer like a huge damage dealer when you use it. Best saved for when you go up against bosses or are in a tight spot as in save your ass move but it works well.

    Anyone here tried Bioware's new game Anthem yet? MMO's aren't usually my thing but I have to admit I bought it and having quiet a lot of fun with it. It's possible to play the game solo if you wish as well as I've done a lot of mission's solo on it. Must admit flying round and blowing things up on it has been pretty good fun so far. I'm only level 5 atm but I'm really enjoying it. I will say that the graphics are pretty good in this game

    The Stuff Thread

    Must admit this new forum looks cool.Going to take a while to get used to it though.
  6. Thought I'd start up a thread for people to put their questions in for Steve about the upcoming game F1 2014 and possible details he can give on F1 2015 if there is anything he can divulge. just make the questions polite and to the point to make it easier for him to come up with answers. I'll start by asking about the Career mode what are these refinements that have been mentioned and how has the career mode been upgraded May be an idea to make this thread a sticky @Hatta when you next log on. Also if you have any of the answers to our questions feel free to come and answer too :)

    Has anybody else noticed?

    That as you progress up through the tiers the races become longer in career mode? When I was doing Endurance group 2 races at x3 length they were at 24 minutes I'm just about to do a group 1 race and it's listed as 30 minutes. I'm not complaining as I'm thoroughly enjoying the game. It's just something I've noticed that the races appear to be getting slightly longer now I'm playing in the higher tiers.
  8. well now the game is out most of us have our careers well and truly underway and some may have already finished career mode. I know this has been done on the old forums but I thought it might be a nice idea to have a thread where we can share our Grid Autosport career stories with others whether it be online career or offline. So who's our first contributor :)
  9. Simple question which discipline will you start with in season 1 on Grid Autosport
  10. I though t I would set up a thread for screenshots and or vids for Grid Autosport so that they are all in one place so people can look at the game and everything is in one place Feel free to add pictuers and vids of your own you find through youtube and other sources. Here's a touring vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfK7Vx3pMtA I know this vid is already up here on another thread but seeing as it's the only good Endurance one I can find right now I thought I'd put It up in here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIVTzkOfDmk Here's a vid of street racing I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUVfEAVdV64 In some of these vids there is the Hockenheim opener whether you choose to skip that part of the vid or not is up to you. Here is some Open wheel action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAmsWtkH77U Can't seem to find any Tuner discipline right now but if anybody does feel free to add it.

    FIFA/PES thread

    Well  as we have one for the football manager games I thought I'd open up a thread for the more active football games FIFA and PES and the careers and such we have going on them so feel free to discuss anything FIFA/PES related here Just please no arguments as to which is better than the other :p you can even share vids of your best goals if you like

    Blockbusters

    seeing as we have a guess the corner game on this forum I thought I'd start my own and see how it progresses. I'm sure most if not all of you Have heard of the quiz show Blockbusters that was once hosted by the late Bob Holness and was recently revived by Challenge and presented by Simon Mayo. On a forum I was on in the past this game worked quite well so I thought I'd try it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKhnVvHWJ3A Basically what I did was just ask a question in the form that they did it on they did it on the TV show Here's an Example What H is the surname of the driver who won the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix? The answer in this case as you all know was Hamilton |Here's a nice easy one to get us all started What M was the winner of the 1992 F1 world championship?

    Post your Desktop!

    So did I tbh though atm mine's just a basic Windows 7 one. I did have an Mass Effect Andromeda one but after I had problems with my PC last year I lost it. I could redownload it again I suppose but I just haven't botherd but considering most of my time I'm looking a the games I'm playing rather than Windows itself it's not that important. Basically it was just a pic of the Tempest's bridge really the ship you command in the game

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah atm I'm justrattling off achievements and goals on the Fifa  Journey mode on the X box. Managed to get a couple of decent goals recorded so far using the game DVR Capture thing. Hopefully I can get some more before I finish the 3 seasons

    A chance to take Yeovil to Champion's League glory too irresistible I take it? :p Either way yeah Fifa 19 is a lot of fun. Those new kick off/party  modes will make for good entertainment at Christmas and stuff I think. They may not have changed career mode too much but the graphics do look slightly better in Fifa 19 at least to me. Also the fact it is harder to score in Fifa 19 too makes it a little better too thanks to the new mechanics but then I felt it was a little too easy on 18 to get lots of goals. Got a couple of games on the cheap as well recently. One called Enslaved Odyssey to the west which is half platformer half beat'em up and the other one Bullet Witch which is kind of half shooter half magic kind of hybrid game. Apparently Bullet Witch got rather mixed reviews when it first came out but it looked quite good fun to me so I decided to give it a chance. Seeing as it only cost £10 I thought I can spare that if I don't like it it's only £10 wasted and if I do end up enjoying it I got myself a bargain. Haven't played either of them yet but I am looking forward to giving them both a try. Enslaved was a little more expensive as that was £15 but still 2 games I'm hoping will turn out to be quite good bargains.

    Must admit the puzzles are pretty impressive and  very challenging even when set to easy in Shadow.

    Must admit I'm impressed by Shadow of the Tomb Raider's graphics the encounter with the Jaguars in the jungle for example was really impressively done.

    I've always struggled at Monaco on these CM games to the point where I'm kind of used to it now but yeah 2017 and 2018 I find are definitely harder. But I think at least for me it's partly down to the wider cars. I just find I struggle more because wider cars on a narrow track don' t tend to go well or at least they don't for me.

    What was your last purchase

    I already had but I only moved early because what I was after was low in stock already when I looked
  21. sjsharp2010

    What was your last purchase

    I bought Battlefield Hardline for  £5 Seeing as these Battlefield/COD type games are pretty short I think it's a pretty good deal considering that I only play the SP whenever I play them. But generally there's not a lot atm that has my attention now that I've go the games I wan for this year. Working my way through the Tomb Raiders again atm. About half way through Rise atm and then moving onto Shadow. Looking forward to my first run of Shadow though as it looks a good game

    I'm the opposite I've never liked Coffee but I do drink plenty of tea at least 5/6 cups a day.

    I will admit though something I forgot to mention earlier. If it hadn't been for the Journey I'd probably have skipped Fifa 18 though as it wasn't a significant jump up on 17 but I will say that the Journey whether you like it or not I think it made pretty good use of Fifa's mechanics and offers something a bit different to those looking for a good like mini RPG. Not sure what they'll do with Fifa 20 but it was good fun playing as Alex Hunter imo. I can see  myself playing around with the mode a few times building him up to play in different positions having a go at higher difficulties if I feel I'm doing too well  or something. Maybe not as much as I do my other RPG's but I still find it good fun.

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I agree despite not getting any DLC for single player MEA is still a great game it's why I still play it. At the end of the day I always just consider DLC's a bonus anyway. I think receiving some good DLC could have saved it especially as doing good DLC is normally one of Bioware's specialties that was kind of why especially with the plot holes in the story with the Quarian ark and the Benefactor I felt sure initially that DLC was coming as the game felt kind of only felt half done without it. At least they have concluded it in a book even if it wasn't really what we wanted. Haven't had a chance to read either of the Andromeda books yet but hopefully I will eventually. I mainly bought Fifa 19 for 3 reasons really 1. the Uefa licensing. 2. Tottenham's new stadium which is great fun to play in and 3. The Journey's conclusion as I quite enjoy that little story mode and the various challenges you have to pass  as you progress through it. Although I will say that you will likely have to limit your time to just either Danny or Alex to pass some of them given some will take extra games playing as them to pass them as in not just Champions league games but domestic matches as well. That's one thing I learned following the  recommended story path on my first run. The recommended path just has you playing the champions league matches. Playing as Kim was good fun though  helping her win the women's World Cup. So I think I'd always play as her given she only plays about 7/8 games across the season so her bits are quite short compared with the boys. When I do another run I was thinking I'll probably import Danny and Alex into a career mode as I was thinking of having them play up front for me as my main strike force in a career especially as they worked out quite well together in Fifa 17 in the Championship section of the story. I don't touch online either but I still enjoy the SP options and although I've not really played them yet that much the new kick off modes look like they could be a laugh. Especially the no rules mode and survival mode where every time someone scores a player is removed.

    Nice I've bought Fifa's 17, 18 and 19 for my Xbox as Christmas presents. Mostly because I wanted a hard copy and I wanted t otake advantage of the Xbox's Game DVR system. I enjo using it on the Fifa's I got when I bought my XB1. Thought it might make for a fine feature for when I play through the Journey mode as well. It's mostly because there's not really much I want to get my hands on game wise atm as I've got al the games I want for this year. I have played the Journey all the way through on the PC but it'll be nice to play through it on the XB1 as well.
