    The Game Thread!

    The only things I' m mainly waiting for now are Fifa 19 and the new Assassin's Creed Odyssey. I do have the new Tomb Raider in my Steam  library although I've not got around to playing it yet but I'm looking forward to doing so when I get a chance.

    Just been having some fun in Fifa 19's demo game looks really solid so far.

    Just thought I'd mention for anyone interested that Fifa 19's demo is out today in case anyone wants to try the new Fifa out. I've currently got it downloading on my PC. I believe the PS4 version of the demo is out as well Xbox will be available a bit later. Will be interesting to try out some of these new Kick off modes though

    Looks like there's a section where we get to play as Alex's Granddad Jim in the Journey Season 3 as well. FIFA 19 is looking really tasty

    yeah I still need to work through some of my old ones I think after the new Tomb Raider Fifa 19 and AC Odyssey come out that'll be it for me for a while to give myself a chance to work through it.

    Monaco has always been a nasty one at least to me so I' m kind of used to that :p Must admit I'm looking forward to playing but promised myself I'd finish 16 and 17 first so sticking with that plan for now. Must admit though the fact the AI are a little more racy is good in that it might encourage some closer racing between me and them my only concern is will they be too aggressive for me but I do have room to turn it down if necessary so I'm not too worried. Either way I'll start by using my 2017 level setting as a starting point and work from there or at least that's my plan atm. Must admit I like how the game has used the F1 theme tune at the start and end of every race though. Not too sure about the new logo and graphics F1 use now but the theme tune is good. Not quite as good as the chain the tune BBC used  but it'll do.

    yeah Alonso's AI is really powerful based on the vids I've seen you should see some of Aarava's vids on the game as some of them have been hilarious

    no but then I've not played it yet. I've got it but have decided to hold off on playing until CM get some patches out for it. Because their patches ruined my first career on 2017 so I'm just continuing careers on 2016/17 until I'm finished those then come back and try 18 then. Or at least that's my plan.

    Indeed and Trump blames video games for the mess. No Trump video games aren't the problem your laws are the problem as President it is your job I believe to solve it. Idiot.

    yeah having saves at the right moment certainly helps the one on Friday certainly did as I had to kind o shut my PC down the more aggressive way because of my TV because I wouldn't have been able to see what I was doing thankfully because of my new screen I should b fine now. But yeah having to spend the better part of £1000 in a matter of days is not good. The graphics cards were at least planned the TV was not. I will say though this screen is impressive and F1 2016 looks beautiful on it. Makes me wonder how nice some of my other games will look once I get in and play them.  Although the new GTX 1070's may be helping improve this as well. Either way I'm glad for it.

    Yeah I don't play the F1 games as much as I used to. I almost didn't bother with 18. Having to restart my career after doing 3 seasons on 2017 till CM screwed my save files with their patching was a bummer and because of that I've struggled to kind of get the motivation to start again until recently plus I've als obeen busy with other games as well. I like the new improvements to 18 and I've been watching some of Aarava's vids of it amnd I have to say it looks impressive but I'm  going to wait a bit finish up careers I have on the go on 16 and 17 and maybe start on 18 once I'm done there. I've lost save files due to file corruption a few times especially on FIFA but never to patching.

    Yeah I got F1 2018 I was originally going to wait but I bought it earlier so I didn't have to go through the headache of buying the Brawn and Williams as DLC later as I liked the idea of playing with those cars. I haven't played it yet as I don't want my career to go crash and burn as CM's patching forced me to abandon my first career on 2017. The game still works I just had to delete my save files and uninstall and reinstall it because CM's patches made the controls go all weird. Plus I've got careers on the go on 2016 and 2017 so I decided to finish those first before starting on 2018 plus the extra time will  help give them time to get some patches out. I must admit the new rule changes and the press interviews I think are going to really make things interesting. Ultimately in the end that's what sold it to me. Had it not been for that I might not have bothered and in fact like you I nearly decided not to. I know I can't afford VR but I've got my new graphics cards and screen working now so just need to get things up and running.

    I htink on the main forum someone modded it in. Don't know how though. Just got my new screen as my TV died on Friday so need to set that up and fit my new GTX1070 graphics cards in my PC now. Then I can get things back up and running on there.

    Just discovered that we can switch between the 3 characters as we play through the story as well so if we only want to play a Alex then we can or only as Kim them we can things like that so we can freely switch between the 3 characters at will in Fifa 19's journey. We're not limited to which character we can be  as each story will be different. It certainly sounds interesting. I can certainly see myself playing as all 3 characters. As that period you get to play as Danny is fun in Season 2 and the match as Kim is fun to play as well. Must say I'm looking forward to seeing how this all plays out and how this trilogy concludes.

    The PC Thread

    After checking the required specs for games coming out that interest me and discovering that my graphics cards barely meet the minimum requirements I decided it's time for an upgrade and ordered a couple of GTX 1070's. Going to hurt my bank balance but because my computer is SLI I kind of have to. Must admit when I next change PC's I'll likely just go back to a single card PC

    The PC Thread

    Yeah I think I need to upgrade my graphics cards given I'm still using 770's but I'm not paying that kind of money as I can't afford it.

    Just watched the trailer for Season 3 and final part of Fifa's journey story and it sounds like we are going to play as a mix of 3 of the characters across the season Alex and Kim and of course our old friend Danny Williams again. Alex is going for the Champions League with Real Madrid and Kim is aiming to be part of the Women's World Cup team and win that. Not sure on the story for Danny though as it didn't show much of that. I' m glad Kim's coming back though as I really liked her character in Season 2 almost got a hat trick with her last time I played her womens match. I got 2 goals and had a couple of goes at a 3rd but unfortunately missed them. Managed to win that match anyway as I got the winner with Alex Morgan.  Would have loved to nail the hat trick but C'est la vie. But I do often at least get 1 with Kim though.

    Must admit I'm really enjoying Aarava's 2018 career mode vids that Monaco GP race he just did was insane.

    Just been watching Arrava have an amazing scrap with his team mate K mag on F1 2018 wonder if it'll be like that with me and Stroll as I plan to start at Williams when I do get the game. I do remember on F1 2012 having some cracking battles with Schumacher neither of us wanting to give the other an inch racing for Mercedes.

    Just watched Aarava's first career mode vid on F1 2018. Game's looking really good. I'm still going to wait until I finish my career modes on my other games first before getting it myself because I don't want my career's taken out by Codie's patching system. I know the game comes out next week but I've decided to wait until a few patches come out for it first this time at least .Especially as I already have career modes on the go for both 2016 and 2017 on the go atm. Once I've finished those then I'll pick up 2018. Must admit I'm looking forward to seeing how the media and the new rule changes affect my careers on the game.

    Must admit the more I see of Shadow of the Tomb Raider the more I'm liking it. Enjoyed 2013 and Rise so looking forward to seeing how this final part plays out.

    yeah wish it would rain here tbh it's so hot where I live right now

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I considered skipping F1 2018 this year but now I'll probably just get it later around Christmas time as there are a few features that intrigue me but I don't want my career mode save to get caught up in a patching up mess like my 2017 career was. Because my first 2017 career save somehow got caught up in I tall and made the game behave very weird it works fine now though but I had to ditch that career and completely reinstall the game to correct the problem. So to save myself the trouble I'll likely wait till Christmas and get it then. I'll make do with 2017 till then.

    yeah sometimes I play better on some games when I'm not feeling great too. Not sure why that is but maybe it's because I concentrate more in those circumstances.

    Well he looked offside to me so not sure either way glad I chose not to bother with the 3rd place game given we're losing again.
