What Goons Think:

The final update to this OP:

DangerZoneDelux posted:

Lol some of you dudes have like 4 pages of posting saying how bad this game is. Fifa must be like an abusive boyfriend you can't leave.
This man speaks the truth. See you all in FIFA 15!

After 5 months, the glitches come into play:

Tzen posted:

Speaking of glitches, had some gently caress up happen during a match the other night. Of course both our kits were bright green, the field was gone, and everything was covered in a blue glow:


Overall it was a poo poo match but somehow I pulled off a win.

After 3 months, what do fellow Goons think of the game?

Soulex posted:

wife just broke my game because I was yelling at the xbox because the game is the game. So, thats that...

gently caress off Fifa 14. Suck my goddamn dick you broken piece of poo poo. I hope that your developers get goddamn herpes in the goddamn rear end in a top hat you festering stinkyhole. gently caress this poo poo. Listen to Pissflaps, gently caress this goddamn game.

edit: I know Ill et poo poo for this post but gently caress it. this game is bullshit.

Dude, you're a loving moron.

There's nothing wrong with the game, EA has been working on this engine for like 8 years straight, it's a work of art by now, it's gotten deeper and deeper over the years, the amount of control you have over the players is insane and it's all based off of real football, those of us who actually know how to play, deeply enjoy it because we can easily win, and do it by playing beautiful football... I've been demolishing opponents while dribbling all over the place because I've gotten so comfortable in the game by now, I rarely allow goals in, and I'm just an AVERAGE fifa player.. you must be complete poo poo, you're much better off not playing the game.

EDIT: Also, I think the main and most hilarious issue here is that this guy is SUCH a goon that he's been throwing tantrums and screaming and doing god knows what because of a videogame, to the point where his wife/friends had to intervene and BREAK the game for him? wow, dude sounds like a real gem...
Release Day Update:
The reviews are in, FIFA 14 is the best game ever. See what this Something Awful Forums poster had to say:

vaginal culture posted:

Embrace it, its the future. Big Benteke and Lukaku playing together as god intends. You can customize any squad and don't have to accept the binary reality anymore.

Is there a reason why Juninho isn't in FIFA's retarded list of top 20 free kick takers in the game? I mean the guy only scored an eye watering 75 direct free kicks. Arango #1 free kick taker is a bit dubious to me as well.

It was addressed in the 13 thread, but the ratings have pretty much been abysmal all around this time. This is just one specific example, but Fredy Montero had a 78 IF released two weeks ago, and has scored 5 goals in three games for Sporting thus far (In a league with much tougher competition than the MLS). He is a 74 in this edition. The list of poo poo ratings goes on and on. As for Juninho's case, players get shittier and slower as they age in FIFA's world regardless of actual real world performance. A few players escape this, but it is very few.

Don't IF ratings kinda not matter at all, since they're boosted off a players current good form and not their normal ability?

Yea, the point was he was a gold last year, played his rear end off this past season, played his rear end off so far this season, got and in form two weeks ago and then was downgraded in FIFA 14. There are poo poo ratings across the board. That one just stands out because I watch the Portuguese League and to see EA upgrade him weeks ago then poo poo on him is really stupid.

It is bullshit though because he goes on loan to a better team/league and continues to play his rear end off and score goals. He hasn't downgraded at all in skill and has, if anything, improved. Overall, a lot of these ratings are frustrating and I hope FUTHead and other sites are wrong or that EA updates it before everything goes live.

Nooooooooooo it is not.

The AI in general seems a lot tougher, I had serious problems scoring/winning games even on professional, when I can score like 10 goals on pro in 13.

e: They also actually make attacking moves and shoot at the goal from range etc.

through balls have always been overpowered because the game relies so much on pace, could you speculate on what base rating Altidore is likely to get?

Alveolar fibrosis don't give a damn.

Anyone else getting crazy graphical glitches on PC when it cuts to replay or pretty much anytime there are players being rendered outside of in-game play? Game itself plays nicely with a 360 controller plugged in on PC. Bit miffed that it isn't getting the graphical overhaul that the PS4 and Xbone version is

And agreed, using your 9 to hold up play and then thread in through balls = goals GOALS GOALLSSSSSSSS to your CAM or wings.

No glitches here, and yeah, PC didn't get "next gen" (current gen) features and engine until 2010 or so, so enjoy the last year or two of good fifa for a while if things go the same way.


e: So some things I've noticed:


1) Playing against the AI is a lot more fun now that it actually takes shots and does interesting stuff instead of basically just stonewalling and passing it around midfield forever


2) I'm gonna guess it's part of the new ball physics improvements, but running with the ball at full sprint is a little more out of control and sometimes you'll play the ball ahead a little too much and lose it really easily, especially if you move right from first touch-> full sprint. I like this, because it's gonna make running around like a madman with a super pacy team at least a little less amazing.



Anyway, so far it feels really good and I can't wait for the actual game to come out.

Lower ratings all around make sense as in 13 players were unrealistically good, about every single player could hit the target 9/10 times with shots from outside the box constantly making the goalkeepers work, toning down long shots and finishing would help make the game more realistic.

Why don't you buy 14 then trade up to a PS4 and 14 again, see what you think, then Parm with us? The father of Parmos should make a return imo



If it sweetens the pot, the controller on the PS4 is essentially the same, so you won't have to learn all new buttons
