  1. I've recently got a 360, my gamertag is mjkane - Playing Gears of War 2 mostly, looking to pick up a few more games to add to my collection, however.

    FIFA 10

    I will pretend that I didn't see that... :winkold: I'm gonna put the game down for a while I think, let it collect a bit of dust before going back to it. I've a few others to get on with for now anyway (Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2). I had to get that out of my system, though. I know that there are plenty of people over at the EA forums who've experienced similar things, but was still curious to see if any VT'ers had encountered things like that - and on more than one occasion.

    FIFA 10

    And on Amazon for the same price right now, for PS3 at least. I'm having a lot of trouble with FIFA 10, to the point that I'm actually contemplating getting rid of it. Now, don't get me wrong, there are a lot of things about the game that I absolutely adore, and yet for each one of those there seems to be a factor that is pushing me away. It's not too often that I curse whilst playing a video game, but I've been calling the referees 'words removed' quite often due to so many inconsistencies with decisions given against me and for the CPU, which ultimately seem to cost me games. The worst incident came earlier this evening, as I was playing Villa v. Sampdoria. Despite dominating the game, it was tied at 1-1 on 50 minutes. One of their defenders hoofed a ball clear and all of the way into my half. Although I had a striker right on my controlled defender, Davies, I thought to myself, "not a problem, I've got three other defenders here anyway!"... That was until I saw Friedel running way out of his area (25-30 yards!), and on to a collision course with Davies. Just before Davies could get the ball, they ran straight into each other. Strangely, only Davies hit the ground, and I was suddenly in control of Friedel. He was immediately dispossessed by the striker. Goal. The worst thing about it is that it wasn't the first time I've experienced something like that. :x Following that, 40 minutes of dominance counted for nothing. So many questionable decisions given in favour of the CPU, freekicks, advantages, you name it! Sampdoria's 'keeper must've been the son of God, because Jesus certainly bloody saves! He saved everything thrown at him. That was, when I could get past the defence, who seemed to hulk up a little after Sampdoria took the lead... Come the end of play, Sampdoria had totalled 4 shots on target. I had totalled 29 (I play 10 minute halves). This has been happening more often to me, and it's making what is normally a pleasant gaming experience a very horrible one. I've no problem with losing a game when I am outplayed, outclassed or when I simply deserve to lose. I've had plenty of those down the years. But I can't stand losing like this. It's almost like PES 2008 all over again... Surely I'm not the only one experiencing this on these forums?

    Yep, just got it myself! It's on the PS3 as of today, I've read that the 360 patch is to be released tomorrow but I've no idea how true that is.

    Someone else with sense I see Pretty miffed about one of the trophies for the game - To obtain it, you need to win a cup with a one star team in Manager Mode; Just my luck that, two games prior to the cup final my Bournemouth side jumped up to one and a half stars! I switched the players around to field as weak a squad as possible but the rating wouldn't budge :x Still, I'm on for the treble having defeated Fulham to lift the League Cup. I've got past Villa and Everton in the FA Cup and I'm now set to face Chelsea in the next round, whilst holding a glorious 20 point lead at the top of League 2 - I'm yet to encounter any of the bugs that have been mentioned, but knowing my luck they're probably right around the corner...

    Well I laughed :winkold: Really starting to enjoy manager mode. I've just got to the transfer window as Bournemouth, hoping to make a signing or two to bolster my ridiculously weak defence. Player interest seems to be coming in at roughly 30%-40%, so I've a lot of progress to make despite being top of League 2 by 14 points after 25 or so games. Highlight of the season came in the League Cup quarter final at Old Trafford. Having gone down 1-0 to a goal from Paul Scholes, Tindall (my midfields weak link) banged in an equaliser, with my pro netting a sweet shot to seal the victory, 2-1... In the 90th minute. That felt amazing!

    I've not seen one, but I think it'd be a good idea!

    Nifty feature, however I've only used a frontal shot of my face, I've not applied the side shots. I'll get around to that another time, but it's better than what I expected. Managed to get my pro up to 78 today, he's starting to become a bit menacing in front of goal. Unfortunately, he's still to bag a 30 yarder but it's not that far away.

    Big time. Started Manager Mode a few hours back, but as I'm a bit of a trophy hunter I've decided to start from right near the bottom of the pile - I'm playing as Bournemouth. Nobody will sign (and I'm talking about players currently at teams rated at half a star, less than Bournemouth!), so I'm having to spend money on upgrading team fitness (currently at 6/10) for stability. Something which is finally starting to pay off, as after 7 games I was having to field a horribly exhausted side. High point so far has been a pre-season victory over Dortmund (2-0), knocking the barcodes out of the League Cup (3-1) and topping League 2 with 28 points after 10 games. I'm ridiculously addicted to this game.

    FIFA 10

    Loving it so far, although I'm having a few problems with an invite from lapal_fan, I'm suspecting I'm missing something blatantly obvious despite trying everything I see. First goal went to Carew, against the filth. I've been playing a lot of Virtual Pro, my player has scored his "fifth goal of the season" six or seven times now, according to Martin Tyler. I did let a laugh out when I heard Tyler and Gray speaking of how small heath are a yo-yo club Very lifelike, Heskey scoring one goal all season and then being utterly useless, wasting chance after chance!

    FIFA 10

    Yep, it's on the PlayStation Store right now, has been since Thursday. Really liking it, the one aspect which I was eager to get my hands on was the 360 degree dribbling which has not disappointed. Although it's a few builds old, it feels really good to control, and I'm having a lot of fun tormenting teams with Iniesta and Messí.
