    Another year, another game.

    Personally, for the last few years I've skipped every other title so this year after last playing 2016, I'll find myself buying 2018 which is down for release on November 10.

    Plenty of info available for this online at the moment, hell, even the touch games looks pretty good but I'd never find the time to play it.

    Oh and to add to this, if you pre-purchase FM 2018 before October 9th and you have 2017 in your library, you get 25% off 2018.

    Saw that offer on Steam, sadly I'm like yourself - have bought every other year.

    However, the amount of time spent flicking through Netflix, youtube & other ****e online, I've come to the conclusion it's perfectly Ok to be engrossed in FM, still! :D

    Really looking forward to it & have very fond memories of the winter nights playing FM until all hours, also the odd year you'd get it as a surprise for christmas!

    Roll on November!

    Its available on FMScout for £37.99 with Beta access, the pound is still pretty weak against the Euro so its about €42, so I'll probably pull the trigger on that and buy it in the coming days.

    :pac:

    Is there a beta version available for free?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,200 ✭✭✭hots


    Hardly touched this year's comparatively but I'll still have to get it I think... Need to rekindle the love again!

    There usually is but you have to pre-order the main game and you can carry your save over. Its usually available 2weeks before the game drops.

    There's two videos out now explaining new features. The first is on Dynamics and the second is on the revamped Scouting system. I haven't watched them through because I can't stand the guy who is explaining it on the video!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,804 ✭✭✭A Brad Maddox Guy


    Yeah he's a bit shouty and condescending I thought. I like the look of dynamics, I always wanted to have player relationships be more intricate and while I think you could already lose the dressing room (a full squad of low morale players is very tough to turn around and win consistently with) it should be good to have it laid out properly.

    Scouting I won't be sure about til I play. It looks like playing as a lower league club will be even tougher and I dread to think how badly it'll impact games with Irish teams.

    Bought this today, mostly to see what the touch is like.

    Glad they have bundled them this year

    Anyone else have problems with games against teams not in premier league where all players and backgrounds are black no colour shirts or anything


  • Registered Users Posts: 781 ✭✭✭davyboy1975

    Lads

    when you lot are starting a new save, how many countries do you select and how many as playable leagues? I'm finding there's a lot of players and wonderkids not showing up for me when I search.

    I normally choose

    England
    Scotland
    France
    Italy
    Germany
    Holland
    Spain
    Portugal
    Brazil
    Argentina
    USA

    All as playable leagues - gives me a database of about 55,000 players and a computer running performance of 2 and a half stars


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 7,941 Mod ✭✭✭✭Yakult


    I always pick large database as well, if I remember correctly. Might help!

    Picked this up for €2.54 last night, was looking something else on allkeyshop and it was on the front page, only lasted a few minutes so was very lucky, gonna leave it awhile though till they release a proper patch and not just hotfixes.
