    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.

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

    The Stuff Thread

    I was wondering tha tmyself when I noticed it because as far as I know nothing suspicious has happened there andthe last 2 or 3 posts were just you and me discussing the new Control game.

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah it looks good and has got very high review scores pretty much everywhere I've looked haven' t got round to playing it myself yet but I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to using the telekinetic abilities on it and it looks like they've done a good job based on what I've seen too. But yeah it looks like a bit of a mind bender of a story a lot like the Quantum Break game was which they did.

    The PC Thread V2

    Yeah that's why I only have the one SSD as I think I'd end up spending more time uninstalling and installing games rather than playing them. I tend to only have my more demanding games on the SSD my older games get to sit on the HDD for when I play them

    The Game Thread!

    I don't think there's enough changes to warrant buying the new FIFA at launch given it's another £50 though I am tempted (so may end up caving like I did with F1 2019 though it was mostly the driver transfer system that convinced me there) as whilst Volta looks fun I don't think I'll be enjoying it that much given I'm not really a tricks and flicks person but the new career mode changes sound interesting but like with things like the F1 games and the press in the F1 game it might get repetitive after a while. I do like the new character creator system they've added though as I can see that helping to add some roleplaying options to help mix things up. I've certainly got a few ideas in which I might do so time will tell though. In other news recently bought the Control game not played it yet but it looks cool and interesting with the telekinetic powers and stuff you can wield.

    Patch Notes for 1.09 – Discussion Thread

    Probably for the same reason why we always have had these yearly franchises like Fifa as well. MONEY So long as people keep buying them they will keep making them

    Well you know EA they don't like spending more money than they have too. 😛

    Apparently they've added a new party mode game for Fifa 20 called mystery ball it looks kind of interesting and fun. Here's a vid explaining it

    You can in Championships mode just not in career. I've kind of put my career on hold atm as I don't like the wet AI. It was OK at launch al be it a bit slow but now they've made it too fast which has screwed everything up imo.

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    I thought it was fine at launch although the AI were at times a little too slow but given it's far easier to make mistakes in the wet by pushing too hard because the AI are too fast now they need to bring the speed back down again. I think it only needed a minor adjustment to speed them up but it felt like they did a major one which has ended up I think screwing the whole game up

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    Yeah I play at 35% at most tracks I only tend to drop it right down at Monaco as I can handle the AI jus t fine in the dry at that level but since the wet pace has been changed I'm not only struggling with the AI but the practice programs as well and like the AI I can usually do fine and pass them in the dry. Kind of make career a bit pointless if you can't pass them or you don't feel like you can pass them because the objectives are just too high regardless of whether it's in the wet or dry.

    Do you listen to music when you play DiRT?

    No I don't listen t oany music when I'm gaming as I prefer to hear the sounds of the game I'm playing.

    The Game Thread!

    Do you play RPG's? I've not played either of the Destiny games but given it's an MMO and most MMO's work best if you approach them in an RPG fashion it might be best to approach the game in a similar fashion.

    The Game Thread!

    Must admit it looks like they've done a good job with the CC for Fifa 20 using it for Volta and for career will be good fun. Still not sure I'll buy it at launch as I'm not sure the changes are worth £50 but my stance on the game is softening a little bit. I'm still not sure I'll play it as much as 17, 18 and 19 though as I think I'll prefer the Journey over this Volta mode. The only good thing about the Volta mode is the fact our protag is completely customisable whereas Alex was not (at least not beyond his hair and clothes). It's more that for me I prefer the professional game than street football as I can't do the tricks and flicks very well. I do like the idea that at least they've done another story mode in the Volta thing though. I'm just not sure how good it will be in the end though given I don't follow street football. I think they did well with the Journey trilogy though as I really enjoy playing as Alex Danny and Kim so there is hope.

    Patch Notes for 1.09 – Discussion Thread

    Yeah they need to fix the AI in rain as I think it's also screwed up the practice programs as well. It's one of he reasons why I came away from the game as they adjusted it too much and it was frustrating me. Whilst yeah they were a tad slow at launch but now they're far too quick. But I'd rather them be too slow than like this given that it's far easier to make a mistake in the wet going too quick than in the dry. Which in my opinion just makes the game unnecessarily too hard. I do like the game and I feel they've done a good job with it but changing the AI as much as they have in the wet was a mistake.

    The Game Thread!

    Must admit the changes FIFA are making to career mode do sound interesting but I'm not sure it's worth paying full price for though. Whilst I can see myself getting it now to explore the changes I can only see it happening when it comes down in price. It probably won't be a launch purchase anyway.

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    Yes I think so but it could have been with 1.05 as that's when the AI were changed.
  22. sjsharp2010

    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    Yeah Austria's another of my stronger tracks not quite my favourite but it is one of the tracks I tend to go well at. Probably because I've raced it on so many different games that I know it so well.
  23. sjsharp2010

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    I don't think it's jus the AI that are screwed I think it's possible that the Practice programs are as well as I seem to be struggling to meet them in the wet and usually I find them easier
  24. sjsharp2010

    AI in the wet - all circuits

    Yeah I'm thinking if I end up with a wet session I'll just drop the AI down 5 points to give myself a bit more of a chance of fighting them.
  25. sjsharp2010

    Anyone else despise Monaco?

    Yeah they're definitely my weakest too my strongest are Canada Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. Though back on the older games I was quite handy around Valencia as well. I quite enjoyed driving that track on F1 2010-12 the AI just couldn't get near me.
