    Official Football Thread

    Looking forward to tonight going t be interesting whilst I hope we win even if we lose our team can be proud of what they've achieved. I'm going to watch it on YouTube. It'll be a great way though to start life in our new stadium as European Champions but even if we don't achieve it we can be proud given this is the first time we've made the final of the competition.

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah Autosport is probably my favourite Grid. I'm no tsuch a bi gfan of 2 because the cars are as drifty as hell that it's difficult to control them properly and the career mode is a bit short but Autosport with all the various track layouts and various disciplines and competitions is always fun to play. Open Wheel, Touring and Endurance I always have fun with those disciplines. I quite enjoy the Time Attacks but not so much the drifting events in Tuner and the street ones aren't really my favourite. I still enjoy racing them but I do find the tracks a bit tight in trying to get moves done. I did enjoy the original Grid but I also found it tricky in places. I may get a disc copy but it depends on whether the Ultimate edition is available on disc as that'll likely be he one I'll want to get otherwise I may just get it straight from Steam. Still I've got the Forza games I bought myself keeping me occupied for now racing wise so I'm in no rush.

    The Game Thread!

    Carefui CM people might start comparing you with EA with you releasing games this fast. 😛 But seriously first we get the new Dirt Rally game then F1 2019 and now a new Grid. It's all looking rather tasty. Whilst I've not go tDirt Rally 2 and am in 2 minds over F1 2019 atm I'm definitely tempted by the new Grid. I recently started a new playthrough on Autosport but yeah that was before I heard this announcement.

    Welcome to the new GRID

    I would imagine so yes but you will need to upgrade to Win 10 soon anyway as Windows 7 support is ending after this year. I didn't want to switch to Win 10 either but because of this I decided I had to. There are some programs you can download and use that will help manage and deal with all the update and security stuff that Windows 10 goes through if you're worried about that. Because for me that was my biggest turn off. But in terms of handling games most games that do work on Windows 10 run pretty smooth because Win 10 has features that allow it to dedicate extra resources to the games to make them run smoother. For example recently I did my first run of Mass Effect Andromeda on Windows 10 and a lot of the bugs and issues I was experiencing with Windows 7 were gone. I didn't change the hardware just the upgrade from 7 to 10 was enough

    PETITION: OFFICIAL TV GRAPHICS FOR F1 2019

    Yeah whilst the graphics look OK on TV I didn't think they'd look too good on the game and based on what I'm seeing I feel that my opinion of that is spot on. Graphics wise else where is pretty good and if I was thinking of getting the game which I'm not atm that would definitely be a big plus point. I may pick it up later in a Steam sale or something later but I don't think I play the F1 games enough to warrant paying full price anymore and I still haven't finished career modes on any of the last 3 games and I want to at the very least finish one of those before I entertain any ideas of getting 2019. I must admit though that while the graphics in general are good the TV style HUD is working against it for me. I like the idea and the F2 bit as well but with everything I'm trying to do atm it's not something I'm going to get at launch at least anyway

    I still do sometimes yeah. Though tbh these days I don't tend to listen to too much music.

    What was your last purchase

    Sounds a little like my computer sometimes I think it talks a lot of ******** too. 😛
  9. sjsharp2010

    What was your last purchase

    Yeah won't likely be much more than a couple more years before I have to buy a new system as I don't think the motherboard I have can handle any more than what it's got on it and I've been thinking of taking a slight change of direction as to what's in my computer to make it a bit more practical. I'll stick with what I have for now but next time I need an upgrade that's when I'll make the change. Th eRAM and HDD/SSD stuff I'll likely keep the same as that's suiting me well it's more the CPU and GPU I'll likely be changing as I'll likely just go for a more powerful single GPU instead of a slightly cheaper SLI type system which my current one is. It'll be moer expensive but seeing as I'll only be buying 1 so it might save me some money that way whereas when buy for my current system I have to purchase 2. Also going back to an Intel CPU will be better as well given I'm not sure the AMD one I have is that efficient by todays standards. Don't get me wrong my current system has served me well but it has had it's issues

    Official Football Thread

    Yeah I missed it as well as I can't afford those channels anymore I only saw the resul ton the BBC website and watched the highlights on youtube. My first thoughts were like Del boy "We've only gawn and done it." But I was really happy for them it's been a hard couple of seasons given we've not had a home as such and everything so to pull this off was incredible

    I don't know what Spurs are feeding their players right now but whatever it is I could use it. That was something I was not expecting Our firs tever Champions League Final. We've won the smaller prizes before like the Cup winners cup and Uefa cup in the past but never Europe's top prize and we're just 1 game away from pulling it off. I think regardless of what happens though I think whoever wins it'll be a great night for English football given Liverpool are the opponents so even if we did lose to Liverpool it would still be good for our football. Will be great to grace our new stadium with it's first trophy being the Champions League but I'm not getting my hopes up. But it would be somewhat of a fairytale ending to this season. Let Liverpool and Man City slog it out for the Premier League while we snatch the Champions League out from under their noses

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I didn't watch this year bu tthat's mostly due to being busy with other things. I haven't got a lo tof games on the go but I have got several in my backlog I want to get through but hopefully given it doesn't look like ther is a lot of games that hav emy attention I can get through some of them. The only big thing on my radar is the PC release of the Halo MCC as I'm looking forward to playing it on mouse and keyboard. I must admit though although I want to finish careers I have on the go on the otherF1 games 2019 is looking pretty awesome I'm really impressed by the graphics. It's really tempting me anyway. I still probably won't get it at launch but now I'm thinking I'm not ruling getting it at some point because it does look really impressive. I' ,not too sure about the use of the TV HUD graphics as that could be a touch distracting but the rest looks really nice

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I do it plays a lot like the old Blade Interactive games in terms of the controls. The only thing I haven't mastered yet is the pace of the table and all that but I think that will come with practice and more time with the game, and getting a kinder draw than Judd Trump in my opening round. 😛

    The Game Thread!

    Just had myfirst go at Snooker 19 tricky little game but it's fun so far. Had my first career mode match after having a practice game and ended up with Judd Trump as my first opponent. Nothing quite like being thrown in the deep end eh? Thankfully I did manage to win 1 frame but lost the match 2-1 Got off to a good start on my Forza careers though last night. Won a few races and a championship as well so I'm off to a good start there at least

    Unfortunately all you can do is hope you bounce back. I'm sure you will with enough work.

    Yeah every club have their dark moment swe've certainly had a few in my time supporting Spurs I'm just glad that in more recent times we've done pretty well. Qualifying for the Champions League consistently getting to the quarter finals a couple of times reaching the semi's this year has been pretty impressive. Espe4cially given we were given what you might call a group of death to deal with in Inter, Barcelona and PSV I didn't think we'd make it out the group much less carve a path to our first ever semi final in the competition. I'll take it but I wasn't expecting it.

    The Game Thread!

    Well it seems to be running far better on Windows 10 than it eve rdid on 7 and I haven't changed my hardware so do you have another explanation?
  18. sjsharp2010

    The Game Thread!

    Well I think it might depend on the game as I'm finding DX12 is workin better with ME Andromeda for example than DX11 ever did given I got lots of screen flickering and gamepla yslowdown in bus yareas like the Nexus or Aya. Whereas now since I've upgraded to Windows 10 it's running pretty smooth. I still get a little bit of a screen freeze when I first boot the game up but once it's got up and running after a few seconds it's usually fine.

    No I don't have a PS4 but that doesn't mean that there isn't games for it that might have caught my eye Horizon Zero Dawn for example certainly did and I would have been tempted had it not been an exclusive. Unfortunately by the time that came along I'd already chosen the XB1 for this gen. Had I been asked now however I might have been tempted by the PS4 given Halo is about to be released to PC and everything. But in these circumstances you make the choice based on what info you have at the time.

    The Game Thread!

    No it's not really a game that interests me the only big thing I'm looking forward to atm is the Halo Master Chief Collection on PC as I'd love to play it with a mouse and keyboard. Just waiting on the release dates for that. Either way these games along with Shadow of the Tomb Raider's DLC's should keep me occupied for a while given I've not played the DLC's for Shadow yet. I've played the main game just not the DLC's yet.

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I picked it up as an early birthday treat to myself not played it yet but I must admit it looks good considering the type4s of tournaments you can play and the career mode given it's al been officially licensed. It looks like it plays a bit like the old WSC real type games whicfh I really enjoyed back when they were around. Looking forward to playing it and Forza7 which I recently got as well. I planned to get Forza 7 for my birthday but got it a bit early as it was on a sale in that I could pick it and Horizon 3 up together for £40 so thought that was a bargain. Again not played the Forza's either yet but looking forward to it. I plan to really soon though but I want to finish another game I've got on the go first before I do. As I'm busy test driving Mass Effect Andromeda on Windows 10 atm must admit though that this has been my smoothest run of MEA so far as I've not run into any graphical glitches at all yet at least not to the severity I have on Windows 7.

    I still visit in fact jus tbought a couple of games myself a Forza bundle on the Microsoft Store as I got Forza Motorsport 7 and Horizon 3 for about £40 and I treated myself to a new Snooker game Snooker 19 on Steam which looks quiet good fun.

    Yeah it's the fact that we managed to do It without our main frontman that really surprised me as I was expecting us to lose especially considering Guardiola's experience given he's won this competition several times in his career even beating Sir Alex on a few of those occasions. Not that I'm complaining would make for a great story if we pulled It off having the Champion's League be our first trophy in our new home. Not that I expect it to happen but we are only 3 games away from pulling it off. I don't like VAR either but right now I'll take it if it helps achieve more results like that. 😛

    Must admit that was a turn up for the books wasn't expecting us to overcome Man City in the Champions League especially without Kane. First time we 've ever made the semi' s so that's a first as well. We've made the quarters a couple of times but usually our story has ended there.

    Yeah it's the same with me as I do enjoy 2017 despite those problems but it can be annoying I'm just glad for the flashback option in those circumstances but I must admit I do prefer trying to limit my usage of the flashbacks so I'm not over cheating but it can be difficult when facing problems like that
