  1. So I picked up a switch last week, but only got FM so far. Hadn't had much time to play it until now though, but looking for other stuff to get to suit my moods. I'm going to get Hyrule Warriors, and probably Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart & BotW at some point. I should probably get Shovel Knight too. Half tempted to get Skyrim also (even though I have it on PC), is the port any good? Also interested in Mario + Rabbids, but worried it'll be far too easy as someone who's used to playing XCOM: Long War 1 & 2. Anyone played Soccer Brawl or Golf Story? Either of these any good? Moonlighter looks great, but no idea when that's coming to the switch. Any other games I should be checking out?

    A thread where we discuss films

    I love the concept for this, but the adult humour just doesn't work. If it was more Roger Rabbit I'd be all in.
  3. I've been very tempted to buy a switch lately, what are good games I should be looking at? Also what's the verdict on FM?

    Netflix thread.

    Altered Carbon was very good. A bit too predictable in places, but overall a really cool and compelling show. I'm worried they might try to make a second season though, because they really shouldn't.

    The Playstation 4 Thread

    Just putting it out there: the Monster Hunter World beta demo launches on PS Plus this Saturday to test server load. Personally can't wait.
  6. A bit late to this discussion but I really Like AoS. It's quite up and down quality-wise throughout, but when it's good it's really good, and last season was largely great. Also watched Punisher. Thought it was excellent, but did think the ending petered out a little.

    The FIFA 18 Thread

    I literally just splurged on him today. Had to sell Thiago, Muller & IF Wagner to raise enough coins but so far he's worth it. Absolute beast.

    The FIFA 18 Thread

    I just struggle to handle the BS sometimes. Just played Legendary AI on SB and it's 0-0 until I score a really good goal in the 89th, then the AI immediately scores a worldy from kick off and eventually finds the winner late in ET from a corner where my player 'cleared it' straight to the scorer at the far post.

    Then please, give me tips. I seem to struggle to break the AI's defense down at WC & above (they always manage to get half the team behind the ball and block every shot) and they always manage at least one goal. Don't think I see the AI ever play the offside trap.

    I had to get rid of Ribery because he was useless at LF/LW. Just spent entire games getting muscled off the ball. Robben on the opposite side does better, but still struggles to get in on goal more than I'd like.

    The TV Show Thread

    I'd say it's best to watch them in order. Arrow came first, but I'd say Flash (and Supergirl) stand on their own pretty well so can be watched before if you absolutely wanted to. Legends relies a lot more on previous knowledge of both Arrow & Flash though. They have a few crossover episodes sprinkled throughout all shows though, and some vague (and not so vague) references that might confuse you otherwise.

    Yeah I'm still really struggling against the AI on Legendary. Just find them so hard to break down, and they always get at least one goal because I still struggle to get defending to be responsive in the final third and the AI plays it at such a fast pace. Often losing games by one goal, more often in the dying minutes or in ET when my players are gassed.

    Yeah I abandoned my EPL side pretty quick. Managed to build a decent Bundesliga side, doesn't help me be less terrible at Fifa though. Going to add Thomas Müller at ST next I think, once I've earned a few more coins.

    So, Harvey Weinstein

    That's the whole point of twitter.

    Any tips against the AI? I'm really struggling. I have low defensive pressure which helps a little but i'm still really suffering against the speed the AI seems to dink the ball about in the final third. I'm on manual player switching but it switches to the wrong player 1/3 times which doesn't help, and most of my shots get saved, i'm really struggling to find any goals (the AI wall keeps me at range). Also having real trouble getting my forwards to make decent defense splitting runs. AI Difficulty doesn't seem to change much for me between Pro & Legendary. Also finding a lot of my passing going stray, doesn't seem to happen for the AI...
