Forget the usual FIA vs. PES face-off, don't mind the failed return of Kick Off, Pixel Cup Soccer 17 has reached Early Access on Steam and it's a promising gateway to local multiplayer fun. Uruguayan developer Batovi Games Studio intends to improve their game after a first release on iOS last June so that PC players can also enjoy some retro arcade soccer/football. Online multiplayer, better AI and the addition of referees (and red and yellow cards) are among the things they have planned, but even in its curent state, their title is a lot of fun. Many competitions are already available (the Olympics, the World Cup, the Euro Championship, etc.), along with the possibility to play male or female teams (even against one another), a good selection of stadiums, 3 different weather conditions to choose from, and even the game's speed (slow/normal/fast/super fast). As the game should be released by the end of this year, the developers have plenty of time left to polish what needs to be polished, so like we said, it is promising to say the least.
@SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (30 minutes ago)
Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (44 minutes ago)
Personally I would've reserved the "V" to BF V(ietnam) (53 minutes ago)
Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (55 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (1 Hour ago)
Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (1 Hour ago)
I bet a lot of BF fans are creaming over the fortifications as if it's a new feature when in fact it was in BF:PR nearly 13 years ago lol! (1 Hour ago)
