    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    This has been a dull as fuck 2nd half. Only moments of excitement are watching the scores roll round and seeing if Man Utd are still drawing each time.

    Now he’s off at half time for what I can only assume was some massive hissy fit about Salah getting his goal because I’ve got no idea why else you’d take him off.

    Shaqiri’s gonna end up being the best bargain since Milner. I like that he seems like a bit of a prick who will wind up opposition players, we’ve needed that. What I didn’t expect and am really impressed by is his attitude. He looks really up for it whenever he gets a chance and there are no signs of sulkiness or Prima Donna shit either.

    Maybe even really take the piss and let Fabinho have a fucking game!

    We had to defeat Shane Long to stand a chance, and he’s taken a knock.

    A goal from a corner! It’s like getting the rare item drop you were after in a JRPG after weeks of grinding when the odds suggested it should only take an hour.

    After 3 mins, Salah still looks off the boil, Shaqiri looks well up for it though.
  8. Okay, some comments about what people are saying/asking from me, a few hours into the ‘post game’ (?) - it’s not really, it’s just the rest of the game after the first credits. Music - doesn’t bother me. I quite like the retro effects. It’s not particularly memorable but I haven’t found it jarring either. Challenge - Yeah, it probably is fairly easy but there are hard bits later on and I don’t understand why you’d want a game like this to me hard. It’s turn based so you’re not really having skill tested, just choices in battle maybe. I’m glad that there is little need to grind for hours and you can just get on with the game. Quest design/sub quests etc. - I just got an achievement for competing 10 nearly 60 hours in. I haven’t bothered with most. Some of the late/post game stuff can feel a bit sweepy uppy and require you to hop about a bit but you can use fast travel. There are valid complaints you could have with this game, but they'd seem really petty in the context of something so well made and dripping with polish throughout its entire 80 hours. Would get a 10 from me. If you think that mean perfect and all that shit then sure, it’s a 9, but my tens are just for the few games every year or two that I really enjoy. This is one.

    Paying to Play 'Early'

    I’m no fan of EA but most of their early stuff is through the sub service where you pay £15 a month or something. I tried it when Madden came out on PC (which I didn’t know was happening). I find their games generally shallow and soulless and their FUT and other practices hold no appeal for me, but, for those that like enough of their games, I’d say it’s a reasonably decent offer. Madden FIFA, Battlefield etc, all for £15 a month with loads of others too. If you actually work it out, it’s pretty poor, but if you play enough it could still be a nice option. Other than that, it’s rental really, I effectively rented Madden for a month for £15. I could have bought it for £35. I don’t know what I think of that really. I would not do it for anything else. Almost everything is released unfinished these days so what’s the point? I’d be more inclined to wait until I knew the bullshit had been fixed.

    I imagine Salah just had similar feelings to this guy and threw the bottle in relief.

    FIFA 19

    Cheers, sounds the same as the demo then. I don't think they do it on PC. Last year's didn't have it, I didn't realise that it did on console last year. I read the Eurogamer review which I agreed with based on the demo, not sure how the main game might be different but it sounds like a lot of my 'issues' are still there and are essentially just due to taste really. It's all very flashy and well done but spectacular moments lose their sheen when they happen five times a game. To be fair, the way I play they don't usually, but I do always feel like I'm meant to be going for the flash in FIFA. I'll definitely try it out at some point though, I always do and usually enjoy it on some level.

    FIFA 19

    Does the full game have HDR? (demo didn't on PC). Tempted to try it for a month and see if I can get into it. Would be curious to know what the differences are from the demo.

    BOBBY! Last year we’d have lost that. That’s the difference. No better for the blood pressure, but better results.

    That’s appalling. That’s like bullshit video game ‘catch up bug’ madness.

    Henderson’s been frustrating in this. I’ve eased up on him as I appreciate he does a job at times but I feel Keita might have pushed us over the edge a little more.
