Re: The Gaming Thread.

Just haven't really been touching my consoles lately. Will join in with these epic battles soon though.

Okay Lyndon. I want to play you. If only Berdych was in the game too, would be epic.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

Me too, but the illegal copy They cut off the LAN function on it, didn't they?

Either way PC, PS3 or Xbox. I am the champ.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

I haven't played in a while cause I can't stand how fixed the game feels. Somehow I dominate games while their keeper makes super saves or my shot hits the cross bar and they get a rebounded goal in the 90th minute.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

Online Leng, or against the computer?

Bogans aren't made for real football games anyway.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

Fifa 12 is good, but I'm annoyed by how easy it is to score a finesse shot from outside the box.

They didn't fix that from 11. My friend uses it all the time from just outside the cornor of the box. So ridiculously unrealistic and the keep doesn't even react at all.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

iC I leon on xbox for anyone who wants to take me on when i get ts4 back.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

My problems with the game so far (put about 2 hours in):
- Can only choose a playstyle of about 5 players (Federer, Nadal, Roddick and a few others)
- You can't even choose to make your own player have a one or two handed backhand
- Melbourne sign on the back of the court is absolutely blurred and looks horrible
- No Australian Open at night
- No US Open during the day
- In a lot of matches the AI will ONLY serve down the middle, they'll only change to serve out wide if I move closer to the middle of the court just before they serve.
- Career mode is an absolutely joke. You can win tournaments including Grand Slams barely losing points.
- Net play is too dominant. You can literally hit a return against any player (I've even tried vs Roddick) charge to the net and hit a drop volley and win the point nearly all the time.
- The AI will constantly come to net no matter who they are, and we're talking about playing that never coming to the net going there literally all the time.
- Commentary is horrible. Same lines over and over again and I've only played the game for a few hours.
- Players don't have the strengths they should have, for example Tsonga's serve is more useless than Murray's.
- Player selection screen is a mess. Why didn't they go with a simple menu like TS or VT?

But I will say some positives:
- The ESPN Classics mode is a nice addition. Sometimes you'll have to finish matches off (eg. Murray vs Nadal US Open 2008 SF where you begin 2 sets to 1 up and 1-2 down in the 4th as Murray) or rewrite history (eg. Tsonga vs Djokovic Australian Open 2008 Final where you begin in the 4th set TB and you have to win the match as Tsonga).
- Nice selection of clothing and racquets for your custom player.
- Some players have nice character models.

Re: The Gaming Thread.

Well personally I am glad I rented it, it's good enough for a few days entertainment and since I'm off the next few days it's not like there's anything better to do. It is a bad tennis game but it's a little fun in a way.
