    Disappointed at F1 2020's release date

    I don't kno wabout thast as I don't think the earlier games had too many I thought F1 2010-2012 were al pretty clean I think but then all of those were released September time around the same time as Fifa. So I think more time definitely helps lead towards a better product but you have to be patient and wait for it. They started moving towards releasing the games earlier in the season around I believe 2015 when they finally moved to the newer consoles and since then it's been effectively one problem after another. TBH the closest at least for me they've came to making a solid game is really F1 2017 although 18 isn't too bad as I think the interviews and rule changes were nice additions as are the driver changes they've given us this year. For me the reason why the driver system is a bit skewed I think is because of the games contract system because there are so many potential windows you can move in. The ideas are there but they've just been poorly executed because I believe they've not really had the time to tweak them and get them right.

    Disappointed at F1 2020's release date

    Agreed the more they push to try to get the games out earlier the worse they end up being so I'd asy let them take the time they need to get it right. I mean look at Fifa this year they tried a similar tactic this year with Fifa 20 by cramming loads of new features in without any sort of proper testing and that has been hurt this year as well because of it and EA have a lot more resources to throw at these games than CM. Rushing games out to meet fan demands is never a good thing and I think that's one of the things that need to be learnt from this year. Take your time and get it right then you will be rewarded properly.

    Is Monaco still unplayable?

    Yeah the only times I've won at Monaco it's mainly when I've been lucky enough to put it on pole and not had to overtake anyone. I'm OK if I'm out on my own but everytime I need to overtake it's pretty much been a no go. If it wasn't so much of a cash cow for F1 it would easily be dropped as there are far better street tracks tbh F1 has 2 of them on it's calendar already in Baku and Singapore. I reall yenjoy Baku in particular as that long start finish straight reminds me a little of those long straights from the old Hockenheim. I am a little better at Suzuka than Monaco though as it's only really that first sector that holds me back as I really struggle through that Esses section. The rest of the track's OK it's just a bit narrow and therefore not easy to nail an overtake if you need it. But like I said I just get the best result I can and move on.

    Is Monaco still unplayable?

    Yeah I think the majority of my race wins at Monaco have come in F1 2012 and in the majority of those cases it was a more a lights to flag win with me taking advantage of the fact no one can overtake me due to the narrow track as I started the majority of them on pole I think so I didn't really do any overtaking in those races.

    Is Monaco still unplayable?

    I don't think Singapore and Baku are a problem as they're quite wide tracks similar to what I've seen Indycar race on and if IndyCar can handle it so can F1 it's more I think that Monaco is built in such a way in that it's just too narrow for todays cars based on how todays cars perform. I agree with you in terms in that it's been well recreated but I don't think Monaco is really suited to racing any more and if it didn't bring in as much money as it does I suspect It would've been dropped off the calendar by now in favour of a better track.

    Is Monaco still unplayable?

    Yeah I've always had 2 tracks I struggle at more than any other no matter the game they are Monaco and Suzuka. Generally I just get the best result I can and move onto the next race and don't think too much about it. I have won on both tracks but I don't win often enough to consider them strong tracks as I think I've only ever won at Monaco maybe about 6 times at most and that's in all the races I've done there in all the CM games anyway For me I think it's mainly due to them both be3ing quiet narrow twisty tracks I tend to do better on tracks that are wider with long straights such as the Tilkedromes I think people call them.

    The Game Thread!

    I've not started career yet on Fifa 20 but I know there's been a lot of complaints around that it doesn't bother me too much as I kind of like the idea of a more mixed up league. I have played a few games in Volta and in proper matches for practice and I have to admit I really do like how the game plays this year. Difficulty wise I think it's spot on for me so I'm hoping they don't change that too much like they did with 18. I plan to play the Volta story first though before starting career but just too busy with other things atm to even do that. I have had a look at the CC though they did a really good job with that. Still need to use them to create my manager and my Volta player for the story mode but I have a better idea of what I want to do for when I'm ready to start.

    Yea hit is I suppose as it looked like a PS2 PES which was why I thought initially it was one of the early PES's I didn't think it could be one of the handheld ones. I own a couple of Fifa's for the PSP but I don't really play them often. Mostly because I prefer to play on the big systems these days.

    The Game Thread!

    Well looking forward to having Fifa 20 unlock so I can get in and play some Volta matches to practice till I'm ready to get really stuck in. I think Origin was having a fit as it said it unlocked tonight and tricked me but now it's saying the correct date as in the 26th weird as I initially tried to boot it up thinking it was available. It was OK though as I'm in the middle of a Journey playthrough and I want to finish that before I start properly on 20. I plan to do a run of the Volta story before I begin on career though. I think it was only supposed to say tonight if I'd ordered the more expensive one but I ordered the standard one so not sure why it did that. I don't do any of the online stuff which is why I don't buy the more expensive versions.

    Must admit I like the new set piece system in Fifa 20 It's going to take time to get used to but I think it will be easier to score with this one than the old system. I think the only tricky part will be getting the power levels right. But after a bit of practice it shouldn't be too hard.

    The Game Thread!

    TBH it doesn't really matter what I think as I can't afford it and my current system isn't capable of using it. So I have to make do without it at least for now.

    The Game Thread!

    I'm not sure either it seems pretty obvious that it's one of the early PES's but beyond that I don't know.

    The Game Thread!

    yeah it's definitely one of the early ones but when it's hard to say. I've got Pes 6 but that has a different commentary as that game has Peter Brackley (Football Italia) and Trevor Brooking providing the commentary so it's definitely after that as that's Jon Champion's voice providing commentary and he came on later as I think his last one was either Pes 14 or 15 as that's when they switched to the team they have now in Peter Drury. The last Pes I got was 16 though and I know that one has Peter Drury. I don't tend to buy the PES's because I prefer to play with proper licensed teams and competitions. I know you can get patches to fix that but I find they can be a pain in the ass to get working so don't usually bother. Besides I don' t find there is that much of a difference between Fifa and PES that it' s really noticeable so these days I just get my football fix from Fifa. Given that Fifa has the Champions League License and stuff now I think overall it's a better package. Yes they've lost the Juventus licensing but given I rarely do careers in Italy I doubt it'll be a huge problem for me plus it wouldn't surprise me if someone didn't create a mod that puts Juve back in anyway. especially given Juve and their stadium were in Fifa 19 as I remember you play a match there with Kim during her story on the Journey as I believe she plays a friendly match against Italy there on her way to the World Cup. Plus I think the addition of all the Bundesliga stadiums plus Volta will help offset that anyway

    It's PES I recognized that from the commentators one of the PS2 ones I suspect based on the graphics

    I have read up on what it does it just seems like another gimmick to me something I'd like but atm can't afford so not worth looking at for me right now as I read up on it when I heard Shadow of the Tomb Raider was using it.. Besides Control looks pretty impressive even without it as I've not been using it and the game works fine and runs quite smooth on my system in fact without it.

    The Game Thread!

    It's only the latest cards that have the ray tracing atm but at the end of the day it's just another gimmick. If a game works fine and looks fine then it doesn't matter really what card you play it on tbh. Whilst I'd like to have more advanced cards and all that my system is handling things fine for now. When the next consoles come out I may look again at an upgrade but for now my system is doing what I need of it.

    Petition on Steam RE: Anthoine Hubert

    Possibly but I doubt they'll do much beyond what I've said tbh.

    Petition on Steam RE: Anthoine Hubert

    They most likely will as Bianchi's family allowed Bianchi to stay in the game after his death.CM most likely will be consulting his family at least anyway before they do anything

    Petition on Steam RE: Anthoine Hubert

    Given they didn't really do anything with Bianchi when he died I doubt they'll do anything with Hubert except maybe ask permission from the family before including him in the game if they plan to. Because I think that's all they did with Bianchi.

    The Game Thread!

    Had another game a bit earlier and it was closer so my initial impressions may have been a bit off and it may have been one of those one off matches where I just managed to dominate. I think Volta is going to be a bit of fun and it will be interesting to play through the story mode wen it comes out. Not sure it'll be as fun to play as the Journey was but given we have free reign to effectively create our own protag for it rather than stick with Hunter it might still be interesting. I've got an idea of the kind of look (as the game has a CC for these modes now) I want to go with for my first run of the Volta story but I'll have to wait for the full game before I can decide

    The Game Thread!

    Had a go at Fifa 20' s demo and Volta last night before going to bed quite interesting. I know I can' t pull off all the tricks and flicks but it's not as difficult as I thought it was going to be. the 11v11 game feels a lot like Fifa 18 though so we may be in for a few goalfest matches again but I don't know for sure as I only played the 1 11v11 match but that's how it felt like to me. I plan on playing some more today to get a better feel for it but that's my first impressions.

    Haven't tried it yet but for those interested Fifa 20's demo is now out.

    Perhaps we should like our threads to make sure they don't accidentally close then 😛 Keep them active as well that should help.,
