It's the soccer paranoia again, they've realized how popular FIFA is and want in on that. Also if you spend any time on /r/afl you would see there is genuine demand for a game. From the AFLs point of view they could even dev it at a small loss and write it off as promotional material.

The only thing I have to say is good on them for at least going to a local dev, the games industry has taken it hard enough already without the AFL farming a game on the local game out to a dev house in Toronto.

Also I think an AFL version of Football Manager could be a good game. Because what talkback, twitter and bigfooty desperately need is people deconstructing coaching staff based on their successful experience in FM2016.

It's pretty sad that the most enjoyable AFL game was released back in 97. The two most recent ones are both playable but AFL Live is incredibly flawed and Live 2 is flawed but in different ways.

AFL live goes one of two ways:

1) You kick a ton of goals extremely easily
2) Tackle - Ball up - Tackle - Ball up x 10000

I found getting to the ball just behind your opponent was the best idea, eventually the chain of repeated tackles and spills leaves you with the last guy standing and you can run away

I remember hex editing AFL Live 2004 to update the players in future seasons. Think I kept it up for a few seasons until I got bored of winning by 100+ pts every match with 5 minute quarters.

Let's get a little crazy. Let's have some fun.

I got AFL '98 when it came out, and then about ten years later I fired it up again and went into it cold when I'd forgotten the "knack" and basically got clowned by Alastair Clarkson playing for Melbourne.

Love the stilted Bruce commentary.

I think it goes to show how important the NPC AI has to be to make this game work.

Also a directional disposal method using the right analogue stick on a controller is really needed. Pull back and release for direction and power, trigger/shoulder for kick and handpass.

Let me start off with a basket of chips. Then move on to the pollo asado taco.

Yeah I can't remember which one it was but all I remember from one of the games was as soon as it was ball up, Clarkson would destroy me at every ball up either by injuring my players or drawing a free kick whilst I did nothing.

I don't like the Roughy news because he is fun to watch but on the other hand gently caress Hawthorn.

E: It's also good for the Saints cause he will miss our game in round 4 and the Hawks normally start the year slowly so hopefully we can continue to reduce our losing margin against them. There's still no chance we pull off win.

Yeah imagining a Roughead who spent his entire career 100% healthy or as near as is a frightening prospect.
