    Thats where I sit abit. Fantastic they've created something like this to see how far they can push the boundaries of games. Just not sure it would actually be enjoyable in any way.

    Just been released on Steam in early access and is another one of those photorealistic shooters like Unrecord. 
     
    Not really interested but I hope one day a major developer utilises such aesthetics and makes a proper military-type sim out of it. We'll probably see more of these bordering on asset flips and whilst it's encouraging to see the potential, I think many will struggle to deliver a worthwhile concept over the visuals.

    I do wonder if cutting players like Grealish and Maddison has had an effect on team morale. They're both big, positive personalities and maybe that vacuum creates uncertainty in the minds of players and affects confidence. I'd have kept one of them around. But then, Iceland are almost a bit of a bogey team for England, so who knows...

    My point is they will need to claw back the deficit on revenue of unit sales lost from players choosing the pass instead of paying full whack. So instead of getting $70 for a sale, they may get $1 for an install. That's probably another three extra bundles they'll factor in just to mitigate the difference there. Then will also need to reassure the shareholders that the product will make even more money than the previous outings especially with a racially new business model so I'd expect even more content padding thrown in for good measure. 
     
    Not only that, they have paid off Bobby about $300,000,000 and they somehow need to start chipping away at the $70bn they blew on the merger. So sure, they could probably even afford to pay people $70 to play the game and still make billions but that isn't going to claw back the money lost at retail. Even though Microsoft print money for fun, the recent brutal layoffs, sweeping cut-backs and dismal growth numbers of their gaming division still demonstrate its ran as a typical business so it will be very interesting to see how this change will impact each aspect. Losing potentially $1bn at retail right off the bat is not a good start.

    A pretty shambolic way to go into the Euros especially with so many bad individual performances as well as a team collective. It's only a friendly but to lose a game like that with a big tournament a week away is not encouraging. I think we are really going to miss Maguire and Phil Foden also has to step it up like he does for club. For all his critics, Pickford is also a key player. Dropping Grealish is such a massive call especially when he maintained Henderson for so many years so that could come back to haunt Southgate.

    Crazy how 19 voted in favour of it.  I think Wolves should've changed their approach and instead requested it be suspended and overhauled rather than it being outright removed. It's a wake-up call though but I hope this unanimous vote doesn't mean they can carry on like previous.

    So, after all the bullshit, I was given my free access to the new PVE mode the other day. It's brutal but it's fantastic, no more having to deal with cheaters. The faction bots are lethal and I've only managed to extract successfully once out of five raids. KD of 1 though 🤪
     
    Tarkov plays as smooth as butter and I'll be back on it a lot until Grey Zone gets optimised.

    Confirmed for Game Pass day one. This may seem a good deal initially for the consumer but the loss of retail sales could see more aggressive monetisation in play down the line. Also people likely aren't going to keep rolling monthly subscriptions just to play this long term.  It may get an early spike at the crippling detriment of other games on the pass but it will never be as viable as it would be just plain selling the game. They could sell 5m copies through their store at $70 a pop making a tidy $350m gross on digital alone or they could have 8m people playing via the pass and if they game gets a cut of $2 per install then it'll net just $16m. The volume of users will also detract from other games and cut-potential so they will throw their other products available on the pass under the bus for a period. 
     
    Definitely one last throw of the dice of desperation for Microsoft and a borderline nuclear option for the pass. Either way, it's not going to make the revenues needed to claw back their disastrous takeover and the pass isn't going to get anywhere near the quantity of players needed to justify its existence from a business and conceptual standpoint. It's a lose lose situation for MS and their partners alike but it could be a short term win for a minority who just want to play the game for a few weeks or experience the campaign.

    A few things stand out.
    Football back when it was good😉 David Platt against Belgium in the 118th minute in 1990.
    Dennis Taylor beating Steve Davis in the 85 world snooker final, staying up to see the conclusion on the last black.
     
    More recently it has to be bike racing ,Rossi's 100th win at Assen
     
    But the one that will always stand out is being in the stand at Siberia at Phillip island, I never thought I'd get to Australia so to be there back in 2016 two months after my grandad had passed away and actually seeing a British winner too in Cal Crutchlow what a great memory.
