Football Manager 2015: One More Turn

There is an expression in gaming that we typically call “one more turn.” It applies to a select few games, typically ones that are much slower paced, that have a tantalising “next turn” button, or a “continue” after making whatever decisions you wanted. Civilisation is one such series; a game that sees you conquering, or failing to conquer, the world as your chosen race. The other game series that often sees that label applied to it is Football Manager, previously Championship Manager, exclusive, for the most part, to PC space.

Football Manager places you in the boots of, you guessed it, a Football Manager at any club across world football. Do you choose a European superpower? Or perhaps your local club, with no budget, reduced playing staff and crippling debts? It’s a difficult choice, and one that will define your seasons as you progress. Do you dominate from the top? Or work your way up slowly and savour every single victory, every single pound that fills up the coffers that you have worked so hard to achieve?

FIFA 15: The Perfect Cure for Football Blues

Some things in life are certain; we’re born, we die and every single year, without fail, we get a FIFA game (some years we even get two!) Over the years the competition has always been between football game series; FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. During the early 2000s Pro Evolution Soccer was the king; beautiful gameplay, reminiscent of the real life beautiful sport, but with no licensed names or stadiums, both of which are excellent in FIFA.

FIFA has come back strong though; from FIFA 2009 onwards the series has started to get closer to the real thing. More weighty players and good understanding of momentum were key, coupled with fully licensed teams and players meant that the series popularity has skyrocketed.

This year’s entry, FIFA 15, has, however, gone backwards in quality. An over reliance on speed has meant that all other attributes have fallen by the wayside; players like Diego Costa, a strong, powerful centre forward, isn’t as effective as the real thing, while smaller, more skillful players like Andres Iniesta also lose their impact – but players who are fast are king.


The Ideal Time for Online Gaming

Online gaming is a bit of a phenomenon for many teenagers and adults around the world and there are certain times in the UK when it seems as though everyone is playing games online.

Weeknights around 8’clock and are certainly busy in terms of gaming, and it’s a time of day when people have finished work, finished their dinner, and they’re ready to clock in for a gaming session. Weekends are busy and Saturday nights are certainly a good time if you want to connect with lot of different plays in online multigame.

The problem is that occasionally it can be too busy and you may not get into the match lobby you want, but if you stick around long enough space should free up. With the next gen consoles it may take a bit of time to kick in before the traffic start, but once people move away from the Xbox 360s and Playstation 4’s then we will really see how well the new servers hold up.
