Quickly set up your score for “Forza 7″ collectors

by myadmin

forza-motorsport-7-1-pd-720x720

Forza Motorsport 7 has a new metric for gating access to new cars and races — your “Collector Score.”

Raising your collector level normally takes quite some time, but with our Forza 7 collector’s score guide, you should be able to hit tier five (unlocking almost everything) in no time.

Take Advantage of Showcases
Forza 7 is broken up into a few broad sections. Much of the game pushes toward competing in the Forza Cup — a grand championship for the best drivers around. To reach the cup, you’ll have to compete and win in several lower racing divisions, each of which includes a bunch of race series — sets of 3-6 races that you’ll need to clear — and a few one-off “showcases.”

Check the special dealer often
If you’re in a spending mood, make the Special Dealer your first shopping trip of the day. Accessible through the “Cars” screen on the main menu, the shop offer a small selection of cars that aren’t available anywhere else, and the selection rotates every few days. Not only that, but those cars are often sold at a discount, and come with a bonus boost to your collector rating. We earned 800 points for picking up a 1995 Nissan Nismo GT-R, well over the 710 points you’d get for buying it elsewhere. To put that in perspective, it takes 8,000 points to reach collector tier 5, a major tipping point. With the bonus, this one purchase pushed a good chunk of the way to that goal. Plus, the car was all kitted out and easily among the top of its class.

Sell Whatever You Can
When you sell a car, your collector rating takes a very small hit, but buying and selling one ride yields a net positive bump to your collector’s score. The score dips more and more if you sell many cars in rapid succession, but if you plan well, you can buy and sell strategically to maximize your score early. We strategically sold off cars whenever convenient so we could buy new, snazzier ones whenever possible.

During our time with the game, we’d often buy a car for a race series and sell it just after. This spaces out your sales, and feels like a nice credit bonus when you’ve finished a set of races. You have a bit more capital to either invest in another car for the next series of races, or go pick something you’d like to add to your permanent collection — like an old personal favorite. Either way, the process keeps your collector moving up as you play.

Do the math
The “car collection” menu shows information on almost every available vehicle at once, including its price and its net effect on your collector’s score. If you look closely, you may notice that some of these will offer the same point values for different prices. The difference isn’t huge — the folks behind Forza thought this through pretty well — and, in general, the magnitude of the collector points bonus you get is chiefly determined by the price of the car.

The best deals don’t come from any store, but from the massive discounts you can earn when your driver level goes up. When you gain enough experience, you’ll get a small credit bonus for dinging and you’ll be able to select one of three rewards — another lump sum of credits, a discounted car, or apparel for your in-game avatar. Always choose the discounted car. The discounts here can be dramatic (up to 400,000 credits), and they allow you to get vehicles that would, otherwise, be super-expensive for a relative pittance.

DON’T buy loot boxes
Forza 7 is, quite obviously, built around that all-too-pernicious gaming conceit — the loot box. The game encourages you to spend hundreds of thousands of credits on fancy loot boxes for the chance to earn some of the rarer vehicles — like the Bugatti Veyron. Unfortunately, the whole thing seems like a pretty bad deal for players. It’s hard to say for sure exactly what your odds are, but we opened ten high-end boxes, and none of them gave us enough stuff to justify the cost.

Turn 10 has said that it will be adding the option to spend real money on loot boxes in short order, and this appears to be a way to push you to spend your real cash instead of the digital equivalent. If you really want to dip into that, we’d strongly recommend buying mod crates only and using them to boost your race winnings, rather than gunning for the elusive cars you may or may not ever see. It is possible that something will shift once the online marketplace, auction house, and other features are flipped on, and we’d be happy to see them defy our expectations. For now, though, there are better ways to get great cars.

David Villa presents his own FIFA 18 team

With the start of the 3rd season of the VFO hovering on the horizon, a new team comes to the fore to compete against the best combined of FIFA 18 Spain. This is DV7 e-SOCCER, the professional team of the project led by David Villa.

The new team will defend the interests of the DV7 SOCCER, the David Villa football school that brings together a whole network of clubs, in its youth divisions. A place to develop football skills while promoting human values ​​on and off the pitch such as team play or companionship.

DV7 e-SOCCER, with SkiZo-84 and Davicin1021 as captains, arrives to try to enter and compete in the future FIFA 18 VFO season that will start on October 23 with the celebration of the first day of the league. Beginning this coming Thursday, October 12, the registration date for clubs will conclude on Monday, the 16th with the closing of the transfer market. A 3rd season that will come to an end on Monday, January 29, 2018.

Two schools and still making goals

David Villa has always been a restless business player. Prior to the presentation of his eSports team, the Asturian, idol of Valencia CF, has opened football schools with his name around the world, several of them in Spain and more specifically one in Valencia.

These occupations, however, do not prevent him from focusing on his main obligation. And, David Villa continues in top form and doing what he does best: score goals. The Spanish forward finished the regular phase of Major League Soccer (MLS) signing two more goals in the 2-2 draw between New York City and Columbus Crew. In this way, the Spaniard closes the course with 22 points, establishing himself as the second top scorer in the US league and qualifying for the playoff for the title.

About NBA 2K18’s Microtransactions

by myadmin

nba-2-1021872

NBA 2K18’s microtransactions have been a point of concern for Take-Two’s latest NBA installment, and the issue hasn’t gone unnoticed by the company’s CEO.

Amid the earnings reports for the publisher that were recently released, Take-Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnick spoke during an earning call on Nov. 7 and commented on the microtransactions that many players have taken issue with. Critics and players alike have commented that they can barely navigate through the game without running into one microtransaction or another, but Zelnick said that the purchase apparently aren’t stopping players from taking part in 2K18 with the number of active players and the game’s sales both rising.

But that doesn’t mean that Zelnick and Take-Two haven’t heard players concerns, and the CEO said that they’re taking comments into consideration.

“We take consumer feedback very, very seriously indeed,” Zelnick during the earnings call. “There has been some pushback about monetization in the industry. The good news is the title was reviewed extraordinary well. People love it. The other news is that entertainment is a want-to-have business, not a must-have business.”

Part of the frustration that comes from the purchases stems from the in-game currency that’s a bit tougher to come by in 2K18. The system has been present in previous games prior to 2K18, but the latest game is a bit stingy with the currency compared to previous titles, a change that makes it feel like getting tangled up with microtransactions is almost necessary to accomplish your goals. While numerous reviews – including our own – commented on the swamp of microtransactions that you have to wade through to play the game, Zelnick said that players are still choosing to be active in the game before restating that they value the feedback.

“People vote ultimately with the usage. And the usage on this title is up 30 percent in terms of average daily users,” Zelnick said. “The title itself, unit sales are up 20 percent year-over-year. So people are clearly voting that they love NBA 2K18 and the reviews reflect that as well. That said, we are concerned about any perception, any negative feedback .. and we’re taking it really seriously.”

Big FIFA 18 patch nerfs passing

by myadmin

FIFA 18 has a new patch – and it’s a hefty one.

Title Update 3 which brings FIFA 18 up to version 1.04 nerfs ground passes and ground through balls.

Most FIFA 18 players agree the passing in FIFA 18 is particularly effective. I’ve found the game favours fast one-touch passing with even mediocre players able to drill accurate passes into the feet of teammates from seemingly impossible angles. (More on this in my FIFA 18 review.)

Now though this kind of pinball-style passing should be less effective with a patch that makes ground passes less accurate depending on their angle relative to the passer.

In short your pass may struggle to hit its target if it’s directed between 90 and 270 degrees where zero degrees is the direction the player is facing. The biggest impact will be felt when the pass angle is between 140 and 220 degrees. Early impressions from players indicate the patch has had the desired effect and it’s now best to try to aim passes in the general direction the passer is facing which is a bit more like real life.
1312
Here’s the patch note on gameplay:

Made ground passes and ground through passes less effective when blindly passing the ball between 90 and 270 degrees where 0 degrees is the direction the player is facing.
The most significant impact will be seen when the pass angle is between 140 and 220 degrees.
The impact scales when the pass angle is between 90 (least impact) and 139 degrees and between 221 and 270 (least impact) degrees.
The passes impacted by this change will see: reduced ball speed reduced accuracy.

There’s more to the patch. EA’s had another look at goalkeepers again to make them more robust:

The goalkeeper sometimes parrying the ball into his own goal.
The goalkeeper diving too early on downward header and volley shots.

And here’s an interesting note: the volume of the audio in the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration has been tweaked. Now why would EA do that?

IFA 18’s Title Update 3 weighs in at 1.735GB on PlayStation 4 and 2.3GB on Xbox One. The patch notes in full are over at EA’s forum.

NFL18,holiday outlook drags on Electronic Arts

by myadmin

Electronic Arts which has a large Maitland studio saw its stock drop Wednesday after it announced financial results of its recent quarter which ended Sept. 30.

Multiple financial news websites quoted analysts who said the stock impact was because EA lowered its expectations for holiday game sales.

The gaming company reported revenue for online games or digital rose to $689 million in the quarter up by $123 million.

But sales of packaged games declined not surprisingly by $62 million to $270 million.

Total revenue for the quarter was $959 million up by $61 million.

But the company (NASDAQ: EA) still reported a net loss of $22 million for the quarter and a loss per share of 7 cents. Those losses were small than the same quarter last year.

The stock on Wednesday dropped by over $5 or 4.29 percent to $114.47.

CEO Andrew Wilson said the second-quarter results were powered by the company’s sports titles mobile games and expanding e-sports competitions. He promised more “event-driven live services including competitive gaming.”

CFO Blake Jorgensen said the company has seen “a notable shift to digital in our sports titles,”

The company said digital net sales for the past 12 months were $3.24 billion up 26 percent year-over-year and now represent 63 percent of total net sales for the same period.

More than 50 percent of Madden NFL 18 players engaged in the game’s “Longshot” story mode through Q2 and Madden Ultimate Team players are up 25 percent year-over-year. Madden NFL is created in the Maitland studio.

NBA Live 18, the Rockets won the opening night fell

by myadmin

image

EA Sports used its latest hoops game to predict a Cavaliers victory and a bit of a surprise in California.

If video games can do hot takes, NBA LIVE 18 has one for the opening night of the 2017-18 NBA season. According to the game’s official sim, the Golden State Warriors are about to start the new campaign 0-1, while the Boston Celtics are set to show right away just how far they’re going to push the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The sims are complete for both halves of tonight’s NBA doubleheader, and the prediction is for two hard-fought games. In the opener, NBA LIVE 18 thinks the Cavs and Celtics will battle each other hard to settle things, with the Cavs eventually pulling away thanks to 40 points not from LeBron or D-Wade, but from Kevin Love.

Key Cavs stats:

Kevin Love:  40 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists — Love’s 40 were a game-high
LeBron James: 24 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists — No big deal, just an opening night triple double for the King
Dwayne Wade: 21 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds — Flash found a way to fit in right away on the Cavs
Derrick Rose: 9 points, 13 assists, 5 steals, 3 rebounds – D.Rose also fit in and helped the Cavs offense hum

Key Celtics stats:

Gordon Hayward: 11 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists — Probably not what the Celtics were hoping for from Hayward in his debut with the team
Al Horford: 29 points, 16 rebounds, 3 blocks — Kind of the forgotten man in terms of publicity with two All-Stars coming in, Horford was the main man in keeping the game tight

We still have questions, though. Namely, what about Kyrie Irving? You figure he’d be extra motivated to take it to Cleveland in their first encounter since he left to be the biggest star on his own team.

In the nightcap, NBA LIVE 18 also expects another All-Star to fit right in on his new squad:

Are two superstars better than four? At least for one night, that’s what NBA LIVE 18 expects, with the Rockets going into Golden State’s house and ruining the start of the champs’ title defense thanks to triple-doubles from both James Harden and Chris Paul.
Rockets key stats:

James Harden: 34 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, 3 steals — Not a bad way to start another MVP-caliber campaign
Chris Paul: 23 points, 14 assists, 10 steals — Also not a bad way to start partnering with Harden
Clint Capela & Eric Gordon: combined for a total 39 points (17 and 22, respectively)

Warriors key stats:

Steph Curry: 30 points, 3 assists, 3 steals
Kevin Durant: 24 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists
Draymond Green: 11 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists
Klay Thompson: 9 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 3 assists — Kind of an off night for one-half of the Splash Brothers

Fifa 18,On the pitch tweaks and player-likeness

by myadmin

The one thing that really stands out in this year’s edition is player-likeness. Sterling’s running style is perfectly replicated as is Cristiano Ronaldo’s and a whole host of other stars across the top teams.

The attention to detail is stunning whether it’s the same when dropping down the leagues or playing with teams outside of the top 30 in Europe is debatable but the effort to really make it feel like you are in control of Neymar at PSG is second to none.

The other immediately noticeable difference to this year’s edition which looks incredibly similar to last year’s before a ball is kicked is tackling. The one-motion standing tackle has been disbanded and players will lunge in varied ways to try and get something on the ball.

It looks fantastic and can be incredibly effective when trying to win the ball back – just don’t try it if Kylian Mbappe has knocked the ball around Mats Hummels in the Bayern penalty area as a mistimed lunge will inevitably end in a penalty.
1413
Pace plays a much more important factor than it did last year not so much that it ruins the game but this time Mo Salah will easily outrun the likes of Per Mertesacker just as he would do in ‘real life’. If your defence lacks speed then you’d better think twice before committing as the likes of Salah and Sadio Mane can really hurt you with their raw pace.

Defending feels more complex than before – it takes time to adjust especially when playing with a new team to how you should combat speed and strength meaning wins feel more rewarding and experts can’t just pick up a controller and carry on as they could with last year’s edition.

The animations that have been included thankfully don’t need to play out in their entirety so players can adapt if physically possible halfway through a ‘move’ to leave players a lot less frustrated.

Strength plays a real part and you can use the likes of Sergio Ramos to shrug forwards like Jamie Vardy off the ball – but beware – you can’t do the same to someone like Romelu Lukaku.

The thing that makes Fifa really stand above Pro Evolution Soccer this year is EA’s ability to recreate the atmosphere in stadiums. The Bernabeu absolutely rocks when you are playing as Real Madrid – as does Selhurst Park when you score with Crystal Palace.

Where Fifa falls down to PES is crossing hitting square from the flanks usually ends up in a looping ball that looks pretty similar all the time. Do the same in PES and the ball gets beautifully whipped in through varied angles and heights.

Playing the AI can result in the same old frustrations and it’s way of keeping the ball usually to perform a 180 remains infuriating.

Off the pitch the offline modes have taken a big step forward. Manager career mode now has transfer negotiation cut scenes and Alex Hunter returns in a very engaging next chapter of The Journey.

Aesthetically Fifa 18 looks very similar to its predecessor but little on the pitch tweaks make it far more enjoyable to play – it’s not taken huge strides but there’s definitely enough to see one through until next season.

Matthews Bryant’s effect on steel man and lion

by myadmin

Martavis Bryant’s demand for more playing time has fallen on deaf ears.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the unhappy Steelers wideout was informed by team brass that he will be inactive for Sunday night’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Asked why he wouldn’t play, Bryant told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler: “Social media.”

Bryant returned to the team Wednesday, only to find himself demoted to the scout team following his recent rash of me-first behavior.
usatsi_10321600-copy ct-martavis-bryant-20171025
Bryant threw the Steelers for a loop this week by complaining about his playing time on Instagram before telling ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Tuesday: “If they don’t try to include me more and continue to do the same thing, then I want out, period. I just want to be happy. … I would like for it to be here, but if not then oh well. Just got to move on.”

Bryant has played fewer snaps this season than rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster, catching just 18 passes on the year for 234 yards and a touchdown. In Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown-centric passing attack, that still makes Bryant the team’s second-leading wideout, but his production is nowhere near expectations.

It remains to be seen if Pittsburgh will attempt to trade Bryant, even after coach Mike Tomlin promised that wasn’t in the cards.

The Steelers are likely waiting to see how Bryant responds to this latest setback before putting him back on the field. For his sake, keeping quiet this time around would do both sides a world of good.

7 NFL players who can move on the transaction deadline

by myadmin

The NFL trade deadline is fast approaching and with most of the league still in playoff contention and a piece or two away from making a legit run we could see plenty of action on Nov. 1. Here are seven big-name players that could be on the move as well as some potential suitors…

usatsi_10321600-copy

1. Martavis Bryant WR Steelers
After denying he wanted out of Pittsburgh earlier this week Bryant confirmed he was upset with his role with the team with a questionable Instagram comment saying he was better than rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster who has taken snaps away from Bryant in recent weeks. The disgruntled receiver is a free agent after this season so this may be the Steelers’ best opportunity to get something more significant than a compensatory pick for a talented young player.
Potential suitors: Panthers Browns Lions

2. Jeremy Hill RB Bengals
Hill is the odd man out in the Bengals backfield. Playing behind Joe Mixon and Gio Bernard Hill has been given just 33 carries through six games. He’s racked up just 105 yards but the lack of production makes sense with the Bengals not giving him a chance to get in a rhythm. Hill is only 25 and would come with a small price tag.
Potential suitors: Raiders Buccaneers Lions

3. Duane Brown LT Texans
Brown’s holdout doesn’t seem to be nearing an end anytime soon (UPDATE: Of course after writing this Brown ended his holdout and returned to the team) and the Texans have done just fine without him after inserting Deshaun Watson into the lineup. A breakup would serve both sides well. And there are plenty of teams in the market for good left tackles.
Potential suitors: Seahawks Giants Lions

4. Larry Fitzgerald WR Cardinals
Cardinals fans are probably torn on this one. One one hand there’s no way they want to see one of the franchise’s most beloved players play in another uniform. But Fitz deserves a shot at a ring and that’s not happening in Arizona. Do the right thing and trade him to a contender.
Potential suitors: Patriots Saints Bills

5. Jimmy Garoppolo QB Patriots
Tom Brady shows no signs of slowing down and this roster is too flawed at the moment for the Patriots to even consider slapping the franchise tag on a player who will sit on the bench in 2018. New England has to trade Garoppolo eventually right?
Potential suitors: Jaguars Browns Cardinals

6. Aaron Lynch DE 49ers
There are plenty of teams that could use more pass rush (including the defending champs) so while Lynch may be expendable in San Francisco there are a lot of playoff contenders who would be interested in landing him. Lynch has been relegated to a backup role behind two talented first-round picks and his deal expires after 2017 so it shouldn’t take a whole lot to get him.
Potential suitors: Patriots Raiders Redskins

7. Vontae Davis CB Colts
With Andrew Luck suffering a setback last week it’s looking like the Colts’ season is over before it even started. Davis’ contracts expires in the offseason and it’s unlikely the Colts will want to resign him. The question is whether the package Indy would get in return would be more valuable than the compensatory pick it would get by letting him walk in free agency.

Potential suitors: Cowboys Raiders Packers

Houston Rockets,NBA 2K18 ratings

by myadmin

It’s that time of year again. Everyone’s favorite basketball video game has dropped its “2K18” version. That’s right, we’re here to talk about NBA 2K18. And more specifically, we’re going to take a look at the player ratings for the Houston Rockets.

Now that they’ve added Chris Paul (and a slew of defenders), the Rockets will be a team of choice for many gamers. They’ve got two of the greatest playmakers and point guards in the NBA, numerous shooters surrounding them, quality big men and countless defenders. That combination makes for a deadly team in both real life and on the sticks.

image

With that being said, let’s analyze the player ratings for Houston in this year’s version of the game, looking for players that are potentially overrated or underrated.

Player ratings:

James Harden – 95
Chris Paul – 91
Eric Gordon – 80
Clint Capela – 79
Trevor Ariza – 78
Ryan Anderson – 78
Nene – 77
Luc Mbah a Moute – 76
P.J. Tucker – 76
Tarik Black – 73
Troy Williams – 71
Zhou Qi – 69
Chinanu Onuaku – 69
Isaiah Taylor – 68
Demetrius Jackson – 68
Tim Quarterman – 67

Right off the bat you may notice that Bobby Brown is missing from the roster. He should join the roster in the game’s first update and be rated around a 70.

For the most part, the Rockets are a top-heavy team, with two star players rated 91 or above, followed by a slew of players rated anywhere from 76-80. It’s nice to see players such as Mbah a Moute, Nene and P.J. Tucker get a rating boost from last year’s game as (mostly) defensive role players are often overlooked in NBA 2K.

With that being said, there are some ratings that can be improved/changed to more accurately reflect the player’s value.

It’s hard to argue that any player on the Rockets is overrated in 2K. The closest player would be Ryan Anderson, who actually received a slight rating boost up to a 78.

Anderson’s elite shooting and floor-spacing is crucial for the Rockets’ offense, but when he isn’t hitting his shots (like during the 2017 NBA Playoffs) he can be an extreme liability. His defense is very poor and his rebounding has significantly decreased in recent seasons, essentially making him a one-trick pony.

It’s interesting that his rating improved in 2K18, but it would be fair to knock him down to a 76 or 77.
Underrated players

Two players come to mind when discussing the players that 2K underrated this year. First is Eric Gordon. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year checks in at 80, which is a solid rating before you realize it is the same rating that rookies Lonzo Ball and Markelle Fultz have.

Now, Fultz and Ball are two of the most hyped rookies in recent memory, but they shouldn’t be the same rating as Gordon, who has established himself as an elite shooter and secondary playmaker.

Gordon should really be up around 82, and if he can stay healthy and repeat his early season success from last year he may very well hit that rating in the near future.

The second player is Clint Capela. The rim-running, shot-blocking Swiss big man checks in at a 79, but he is another Houston player that should be in the low 80s. Capela struggles in certain matchups (see the first round series against the Oklahoma City Thunder), but excels in others. He dominated in the second round of the playoffs last season, and with Chris Paul in town Capela should take another jump.

Capela is poised for a breakout season, and if that does indeed happen his rating will surely jump into the low 80s alongside Gordon.
