I'm taking the opportunity to actually play other games other than FM *Shock Horror!* because I know when FM14 drops, everything else is irrelevant.

I thought I'd give the challenges a shot for one last FM13 attempt, but only got two games into the first one before getting bored. Always happens when the next version is announced, so using the time to play other things or just generally do something that doesn't involve staring at a glorified spreadsheet. All change next week though.

I found an old Godfather 2 game disk so going to spend the week trying to run 100% of the cartels :D

No decent pc games (imo) for ages then we get 4 in a couple of weeks:

FM14

Batman Origins

BF4

COD

The old credit card is in for a bashing!!

I uninstalled FM13 a month ago.

I've resorted to speaking to my wife in the evening. She'll be sick of that pretty soon, so she'll be delighted when I go back to "that bloody game" in a week or so.

In FM12 I'm still trying with great difficulty to win the ECL with Afan Lido. I'm in the euro cup group stages this season, and have held Valencia (H) 1-1 and Sparta Prague (A) 2-0(win!) despite not even intending to get a point from either game cos we're literally rubbish..!

On the other hand I've been dabbling in FM 13, if only to remind myself of some of the features I expect to see cleaned up in 14 :D I couldn't have an enjoyable game with 13, I tried the other day but it got ridiculous.

As I type this, only around 6 days and 10.5 hours to go until the BETA hopefully will be able to be downloaded. As long as I play atleast 1 more season of fm13 so I can win the champions league with liverpool.

I'll still keep fm13 game on my computer until the full fm14 gets released end of the month. but a day or 2 before the beta is released I want to speed up my computer by doing a defrag and other stuff with it.

Usually I'll just abandon whatever save I'm on for the new version but this year I'm really enjoying my current save so I'll finish the season and leave it in a nice place should I ever return

I have something you kids can do until the beta releases.

Go over to CVG and vote on the Golden Joystick awards, once you have voted you will be able to chose between Civilization V or Mafia II and be given a code to activate the game on Steam FOR FREE!

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/

That should give you something to do for a week.

The site is getting hit pretty bad and it could be a bit slow so you will have to be a bit patient, I also heard they have stopped new accounts for the time being but are working on it, just keep checking back, I am sure they will have it sorted very soon.

I've loaded up my journeyman career which I hadn't touched in months, added a new manager and retired him in order to go back to my favourite club of that career and of all fm13, Empoli. Despite having been away for 5 years pretty much all the players were signed by me so there's no adjustment period. I'm attempting to bring as many of my heroes of this career with me as I can and just have some fun

I left the Leeds side I've been managing and doing very well with for 8 years to take the Real Madrid job as a sort-of last hurrah, a final bit of glory before "retirement".

Pretty much this, revisiting some favourite games that may not get much love over the next 3 months or so.

Been playing my fictional league in OOTP. Might have a shot at the playoffs this year if my star pitcher can just keep himself off the DL this year. It's in the 1874 right now (started it as early as the game let me), so pitchers still pitched the full 9 and every game, so losing him would murder my chances.

It's this lull I hate - I was playing a career game on FM2013 but now it's only a week away, I've kind of lost interest in that game. The start of a new season makes me want the new FM so I'm just playing the waiting game now. GTA V is filling some of the void nicely however.
