US School Shootings

Sympathies with the families and the children in this horrible incident. Adam Lanza being questioned by Police. Sad times especially at this time of year.

FM2013 Pre Release Media

Recently have been really enjoying TF2 and MVM but like every year I try to stay tuned to Football Related games and in particular Football Manager.

For me the Classic mode in 2013 is a big pull, I like the idea of FM but over the last few years it feels like I'm playing spreadsheets since the pace of the game is so slow. From what I have read about classic mode the pace is changed so that you should be able to get through a season in five hours so tempting...

Downloading the FM2013 demo as I write. I still think the last big thing left is multi-player but after SI got their fingers burnt with FML I think the wounds need to heal before they revisit this.

I still can't understand why they can't do perpetual games that run at a predetermined speeds, 1 season a week / month / bi-monthly. You join a game with no reputation, you can join any club (not managed by another) but if you have no rep you'll get sacked should you not perform.

So lets say you join a game in season 6 and decide you fancy being manager of Liverpool you draw with Everton and the fans would be screaming for your head. However if you have a reputation the same thing happens and they would cut you some slack.

I concede there are lots of issues to overcome but it could be made to work and by charging micro-payments to play (like Valve do with TF2) and the future of the game is very rosy indeed!

New Star Soccer

Dam years ago I wrote out a spec for a game and sent it to EA, they turned it down. Today I thought I would try New Star Soccer, wow amazing just the game I have always wanted to play.

Yet to try the Pc version but I'm loving it on Android!

FIFA12 and Awful Passing

Just getting immensely frustrating with the game now I always buy it and it always results in the same thing. I get to a level where the game turns into nothing resembling football and the scores do not resemble football. The level preceding it I win 10-0 also does not resemble football.

I have no idea what is going on with passing Inesita cannot seem to pass the ball 10 yards. I'm done with it FIFA12 is awful for me as a football game.

No Games

I'm literally just playing Bejewelled  Blitz now, about to get a new laptop though which my might cope with TF2. I'm not really buying it for that though. Still play FM now and then but at the rate I'm playing a season takes around four months.

Still rolling the dice on the odd new site as well now and again, the big thing for me personally recently is giving up smoking and have started a site on this theme called Ecigs Reviews which as you might guess is the method I used to give up.

Fight Night Champions Mini Guide

Well I have just about finished with Fight Night Champions now but I did get full value out of it if truth be told.

It did get a little repetitive towards the end basically just get a big tall fighter with massive reach focus on well-developed jab and straight and bob is your uncle.

I also went for a counter puncher style with a Mike Tyson style body, was a bit lunatic that one!

Fight Night Champions

Recently been playing the latest incarnation of one of my favourite franchises that is Fight Night. I normally opt for an outside fighter that is very tall and develop distance punches like a jab and straight seems to work out ok.

I was a little dubious about the controls but found that you could use a retro style, so two buttons control an arm. The two right buttons control the right arm, one for hook and straight then you push left trigger for high or low. It is pretty intuitive after a while.

I think a lot go in for the button mash but that does not work you have to wait till your opponent makes a move and quickly select the right punch.

It is not amazing I found training to be a real chore but overall it is a fun game.

Assasins Creed & FM2011

I got revelations it is very good but I think I might have OD'd on Assassins Creed after playing 2 and Brotherhood back to back.

Still having the odd dabble with FM2011 and still no where even close to buying 2012. Been busy with websites recently and experienced an odd glitch. One of my sites is Furniture Bradford which features furniture suppliers in the Bradford area.

So this little micro site earns around 25p a month literally nothing, yesterday £35, today £30, it is a nice glitch but I suspect something might just have just gone wrong!

Other than that Happy New Year!
