    Source: EA SPORTS FIFA via Facebook
    FIFA 17 was a groundbreaking edition in EA Sports’ long list of football video games for a number of reasons. The developers decided to include women’s international teams on the game for the second year in a row – showing signs of progress in both the stature of the female sport but also in the gaming industry.

    Secondly, The Journey was well received on the whole. FIFA opted to incorporate a new feature similar to that on EA Sports’ NBA 2K games. The Journey allowed you to control Alex Hunter, a young star working his way through the ranks at your favourite club - but it isn’t as easy as that. With a number of loan moves, training sessions and limited appearances to impress the coaches, you have to strategise and take advantage of opportunities just as you do in real life.

    So where do EA Sports go from here? FIFA 17 is widely regarded as one of the best football games in the industry. Pro Evolution Soccer has struggled to rival FIFA in recent years but the FIFA series needs something new in order to remain at the forefront. Here are a few ways for them to stay ahead of the field...
     
    Continue to improve graphics
    Every year, FIFA’s graphics get better and better but there is still room for improvement and EA Sports will strive to offer gamers a near-perfect gaming experience if possible. Some of the players look nothing like what they do in real life and incorporating regular updates on appearance rather than just statistics could be the way forward.

    In terms of the crowd and how they interact with the game, a few additional gestures and movements would go down well with those fans who enjoy well-rounded gameplay. Gameplay itself was much better in FIFA 17 but a smoother experience is always appreciated whenever possible, especially online.
     
    Introduce more stadiums from Europe’s top leagues
    The introduction of all 20 Premier League grounds was a pleasant surprise but there are still some high-profile arenas from around Europe that do not feature. If possible, bringing in all grounds from Spain, Germany and Italy will appeal to those who enjoy playing with clubs outside of England and after all, that’s where most of the best sides are based - not to mention dedicated gamers.

    As of April 10th, Leicester City, 33/1 to win the Champions League in Paddy Power online betting odds, are the only English side remaining in Europe’s elite club competition. EA should begin to focus on enhancing European football’s top divisions...


     
    Take more time on player ratings
    At the end of the day, player ratings are vital to FIFA – especially when playing online and against friends. There’s nothing we like more than beating our nearest and dearest and EA Sports must update player ratings on a weekly basis or whenever there has been a match involving that team.

    Anomalies are always going to occur but far too many unrealistic details were added in FIFA 17 and football gaming fans would much rather EA focus on improving that particular aspect of the game than something not quite as important. After all, giving an average player a five-star skill level probably isn’t fair – let’s hope for greater accuracy in FIFA 18. ...

    Knowing how to find a cheap and powerful gaming PC can make all the difference for a lot of dedicated game players. Many people want to be able to enjoy games on gaming PC devices specifically. While people can find lots of different devices that are going to be compatible with many different games, coming up with devices that are much more specialized can still make a big difference for a lot of people. Of course, a gaming PC is typically going to be too expensive for people who are playing games on a budget. There are ways of finding a relatively inexpensive gaming PC. People will need to get creative with their shopping and purchasing in the process.



    Getting a Gaming PC at a Discount

    Lots of people are going to be able to get gaming PC devices at a discount these days. It is getting easier and easier for this to work as gaming devices become much more mainstream. Not everyone wants a used or modified device, and it is still possible to save money on a new device. Getting discounts and voucher codes on sites like AO and Argos can make all the difference for the people who want the newest and best gaming PC devices on the market, but who want to be able to find the best possible bargains.

    Putting Together a Gaming PC

    It is possible for people to modify other devices to get them to functionally act as gaming PC devices. People are going to need to make sure that they get the right parts and that they have the right idea of what they want, of course. However, once they have a plan in place, modifying existing devices can actually be less expensive than buying new ones.

    People will also be able to get all of the features that they want in these devices, and that can make the entire process easier. Modifying devices also makes it easier for people to be able to update them when the time is right, giving people the opportunity to keep up with the times easily. Some people are going to like the engineering challenge associated with this as well as the cost-saving aspect, and they would choose this option anyway.

    Getting Used Gaming PC Devices

    Some people are just going to be better off getting devices that have had at least one previous owner. In many cases, these devices are actually going to be high-quality still, so people are not going to have to worry about making too many sacrifices in the process. Some people will actually rent out their gaming PC devices on a rotating basis online in an age where lots of people are learning about new ways to save money and lots of people want to make some quick cash. Both parties can benefit when it comes to used gaming PC devices. People who want to own or rent these sorts of devices will be able to easily do so if they look for the right listings. ...

    Ive been mad into Computers and the internet for at 20 years if not longer, at one stage I would play for 8 hours a day on computers and nowadays Online gambling is everywhere. Casinos online aren't for everyone but sites like http://casinoglobal.info/bonuses/free-spins-bonuses/ list all the sites where you can get free spins and bonuses to play all sorts of casino type games. Some of the games you will find for free include the likes of:

    The first game is one most of you should easily have heard of, Blackjack is a card game that contains elements of skill, chance and entertainment in a perfect blend. The game is played against the dealer at a live or online casino, although multiplayer blackjack is becoming very popular in the industry today. It can safely be said that blackjack is one of the most liked card and table games in the casino business, thanks to low odds and the excitement involved.

    Next up on the list of casino/gambling games is Poker, Online poker sites canlet you play cheaper games because they have very little overhead costs. Adding a poker game to their games does not cost them anything and they are able to offer you low stake or even free games, free is always good remember . Beginners will start with the free online poker and that's always the best way because you get to learn the game before moving on to low stake games, and finally move on to the big stakes when they know all the rules and if your very good theres a chance of making some good coin, but remember always be sensible. Online poker websites are also able to offer tournaments at a much lower cost than conventional casinos so the prizes can be very impressive. Winners of online poker tournaments sometimes gain entry to real-life brick and mortar poker tournaments and we have all seen the late night tv shows with world champion poker players.

    Finally tonight im going to chat a little about Roulette which is one of the gambling industry’s most popular and recognisable games and the roulette wheel is representative of everything that makes gambling so exciting especially if you have ever played that roulette game in a drinks party and get the alcohol shot that no one wants to dare drink.. The game is extremely simple which makes a difference to most games, having players place their bets on a roulette table to predict which slot the ball will fall into once the roulette wheel stops spinning. Roulette is wildly popular at online as well as land-based casinos across the world.

    So if that's go you buzzing with interest then why not try out a free spins casino no deposit required and introduce yourself into the world of online casinos whilst always remembering not to fall into an addiction ...

    Apple are after the success of the Apple iPod, The Apple iPhone, the Apple iPad, the Apple Watch and the Apple Mac the wealthiest company in the world with a turnover that most countries cant match, but sadly we all pay a massive premium for the products.

    The Apple iPod these days isn't the seller it was but in the old days it was the best music playing device you could get anywhere in the world, the days of the Apple iPod Classic, the Apple Ipod Touch and the Apple iPod Shuffle may not be as successful as they was a good 6 years or so ago but the part in history they hold is so important too all of us who like to hear music on the move.

    The Apple iPhone is now on its number 7 release and its easily the best selling phone of all time and continues to astound everyone with new innovations on each different release and despite the very high price the name apple seems to keep it at the very top of the mobile gaming scene despite all the android and windows phones that have been released by the likes of Microsoft and Samsung, Sony and that's just to name but a few.

    The Apple iPad much like the Apple Iphone is the king of the tablets, the build quality and high definition streaming make the apple iPad the king of tablets and that's despite a massive amount of tablets released under the android and windows operating systems. The closest tablet to the ipad are the Samsung galaxy tablets.
    The ipad gives you the best experience of tablet usage you can get but again at a cost which is double or treble the cost of any other tablets on the market.

    For me the Apple Watch is more of a gimmick than anything else much like the fitbit watches or the Samsung galaxy gear watches, all these watches remind me of the calculator watches of yesteryear, like all watches they are limited by the size and the usage just isn't easy, you cant easily browse the internet or phone people or do half as much as you can with a phone, call me pessimistic but sorry I don't agree with them :P

    The Apple Mac is a very premium Laptop with the Apple OS installed, for people with money its probably the best laptop to buy, yes its got build quality on its side but surely its not worth an extra thousand pounds over a an Android or Windows Based Laptop, for me I will never pay that much for a laptop no matter how good they think it is.

    Apple do make quality devices but pricing is at a premium, most of us want to play at a fairer rate.

    Getting back to Apple, will they reduce their prices, we all know that their profit margins make them one of the worlds biggest and most powerful companies, maybe the only way to make them lower prices is to stop buying, but will the world do it ?, it doesn't seem so does it ? ...

    2. Retro Consoles/Translation News,
    3. Raspberry Pi

    Ive been sat at home this Xmas, getting drunk as you do, eating way too much and watching a load of crap films on TV, but whilst going through Facebook one day I noticed what must have been a sponsored link to a site called Pixelarcades, having never seen it before and im trying to get back into the good old days of newsposting I had a good looksy.

    Now I am really glad I did, the guys at Pixelarcades are from what I can see replacing the guts of the games consoles with I presume a raspberry pi board and some type of flash drive or hard drive and bundling it with roms and emulators.

    Theres probably more to it than I know but if you want a PSX, Snes, N64, Dreamcast etc maxed out with games this is an awesome way to go about it, if you live in the UK you can even get your console converted and at the moment they are even buying consoles to be retro fitted.

    They also sell pinball tables and arcade systems if you have the cash to buy them, some look like one off versions too. Cant fault them at all for the balls to do this, check them out here -> http://pixelarcades.co.uk/ and give me your comments. ...

    Im the first to admit I let the site and network down, but slowly but surely im going to rebuild this as the network for homebrew and emulation and hacking, theres a long road to go, nothing happens over night so first off I needed to sort the sites out and condense them to a clear and manageable state, then the forums have also been reduced and again ads removed etc.

    Soon I will begin newsposting and getting myself back into my hobby of over 15 years, doing this site work has started to give me the buzz I lost a long while back and the more I do the more I will enjoy it, without going overboard.

    I look forward to bringing you a much better DCEmu than you've seen for a while

    thanks to anyone still visiting ...
