Don't know if there was a previous topic like this, but really not going to bother trying to find it anyway.

Saw this re: Tom Clancy: The Division. Previous (game play) footage has already been impressive. These screenshots are pretty damn good!

Not going to link them in here as the page will just be way too wide

Cool, will have a look in a bit Kiwi.

Have you seen the featured game on the xbox home page called Max:  The Curse of Brotherhood?  Basically looks like a next gen version of that Limbo game.   Its 11.99 as well, so arcade priced.   Had a look at the vid of it earlier, the graphics look awesome in a nice cartoony way, worth a look, im actually tempted to get it.

Ah - I've not seen it but the kid mentioned he 'knows about it'.

Agreed - 'arcade' price ... good to see it.

Anyone with an iPhone should give this game a try that i stumbled upon today, its called Football Kicks: Title Race.   Its quality so far, free to play on iOS and very addictive can buy players, train players, upgrade stadium, and the best bit in old school spectrum gaming style is that you take part in matches in similar fashion to the game 'Striker' from back in the day.   Honestly give it a try im loving it and neglecting Football Manager as a result, and the xbox at the moment lol.   You can of course buy premium content or whatever you want to call it but i seem to be getting by just fine without touching any of that.

It sounds like the game on Spectrum, Footballer Of The Year. Anyone remember that? You would get between 1 and 3 chances to score ever match you played. You had to buy chance cards and also random things would happen that gave or took away credits to buy the cards. If you were doing well you could get transferred. Got to be mid to late 1980s that one!

yeah in matches all you do is take chances by swiping your finger where you want to shoot, very satisfying :)  Ive won 4/4 so far and top the league.   You take free kicks and pens as well, not noticed anything else so far.   You cant do anything to stop the opposition scoring but hey you dont wanna be too involved.

The presentation looks fantastic as well i have to say.   At the start you name your team and design your teams strips and badge.  Does seem like theres been a fair bit of effort put into the development of this game.   Just hope it keeps me interested and doesnt just hit a dead end after a full season or anything like that.

Just smashed Seattle 6-2, they really had no answer to my prolific finishing.   4 goals from my star striker Proschwitz

Had to make a couple crosses in that game as well, by swiping finger again, so its not just about the shooting

That's pretty good Eric. Addictive stuff.

Can see how they make their money though :o :o. Lots of real $$$ for the 'virtual coins' and 'gold bars'. I'm playing on the iPad as the phone was just too small - got the kid playing on there :D.

Like the interaction with the transfer market too. Nifty stuff.

Top of the table after 8 games averaging 4.5 goals/game. But, got to give them a rest now, they're all knackered.

Yeah its good fun eh.  I got stuck last night cos my players as one of my players had got injured.   Im trying to find ways of playing it so that I dont have to pay real money for anything.   Ie when you have to wait for training to take effect and so on, ill just wait, not fussed about using my supply of gold bars/coins to speed things along.

Oh but on the injury, I didnt think i had any reserves so was on transfer market trying to bid for young, fairly average players with my 45k coins, kept getting outbid tho, didnt see that the auctions were on a timer as such.   The 'World Transfer' tab seemed like a live auction (ie buying from other players) could be mistaken tho.  Anyway after sitting idle trying to buy a reserve defender for 15 mins, I realised that i actually did have some reserves (and you will have too)  so you can just sub them in for the low condition players.  Just about to get back on it lol.

Had to watch i didnt accidetnally pay the 9.99 for a premium stadium like the Emirates lol.   That would be a disaster.

Just spent a few minutes alternating between the 2 devices. Some of those training exercises on the iPhone is so small!

Also didn't realise that there was a bench, at first. The kid mentioned it first & then I realised that you could send them to the 'transfer list' as such. They show up in the 'reserves' section, so it's nice to see what they are worth as well as their rating.

Agreed on the bit around it being a live auction with real people. Cool idea actually. Seeing some players around the 220k mark for a 45-50 rated player.

I accidentally used up heaps of coins upgrading some areas of the stadium. Got to wait another 4-odd hours for that to complete :).

Not using the gold bars - need to save up to buy the nutritionist to speed up their recovery.

Im alright with the training stuff, if i get 2-4 stars spirit i figure thats enough.   I do find the penalties quite hard.   Also when it comes to matches the crossing can be tricky but im getting the hang of it.

Dropped to 3rd in the league after losing to a title rival.   Even for the 1st time used the attacking boost at half time when i was 2 down but to no avail.   had couple of chances but the Trabzon keeper was playing like a TOTY card, diving across the goal to save my goalbound shots.   Dam.  Never mind sitting in 3rd position now so still in promotion spots.
