The latest in my series of spoken-commentary vids is here – this time it’s FIFA16 getting the on-mic treatment:
A longer 22-minute clip here. I go more in-depth than I have before on my musings re. FIFA and about football gaming in general.
The bullet points for those unable to watch and listen for any reason:
- I like my team’s kit to be as different in colour from the other team’s as possible. Nothing worse than accidentally starting a match where you’ve got two teams in too-similar kits.
- I’ve played about 6 matches in a FIFA16 Career Mode since PES2014 stopped last week. This match on display here is the 7th (or so).
- I enjoy a nice cup of tea.
- The match features several goals, each one interesting in different ways.
- Let’s Play-style vids (of which this is undeniably one) frequently irritate me when the speaker is distracted by on-screen action and then forgets to pick up the thread of whatever he was previously talking about. I promise to try not to do that…
- …but I do do it at least once. Perhaps you’ll notice when.
- I possibly mispronounce Marcus Tudgay’s surname in an amusing way.
- FIFA16, like PES2016, is a no-fouls football game. I deplore the way things seem to be going.
- At least FIFA16 doesn’t have those preposterous, no-consequences, long-range slide-tackles that so disfigure the gameplay on the PES side of the fence.
- I invent an amusing new thing, with which I am Well Pleased, that I call ‘I like FIFA, but…’ Which explains today’s post title.
On Friday, I’ll have a regular post about my recent roaming along the football game hallways. E.g. I scored a great goal in PES2011 that I’ll post and rave about specifically. The normal business of the blog, in other words.
But I’ll try to do one of these special spoken-word things once a week for the next month or two – time and technicalities permitting.
For anybody who missed it, in the previous post’s comments thread I invited commenters to nominate football games that I will play with live spoken commentary, as above.
I’ve already collected the nominations, which currently stand at:
Football Manager (original Kevin Toms version)
2010 FIFA World Cup
FIFA98: Road to the World Cup
This Is Football
At least one of the above list will prove difficult to get and/or difficult to record, and might not come to pass, so I collected plenty of nominations to fill the gaps.
Nominations are now closed and the list above is the final one.
