News Comments > Franchise Hockey Manager 4 Released

This game can finally give Eastside Hockey Manager a run for it's money, it's just missing multiplayer. It's a shame SI went through all the effort to update EHM and then just abandoned it.

In other words, Autodesk doesn't like how much traction Blender3d is getting with Unity.

I don't think the Bluehole guys are going to take this any further. They called out Epic for not operating in good faith and the feud is probably just going to die there.

Now cue all the other PUBG clones... I figure 6 months in is about right.

Maybe these guys will reinvest their money in Shroud of the Avatar now.

BWAHAHAHA! Hey, can't you buy land and homes now in SotA? Maaaan - buy now, sell it for a lot, lot... LESS later.

Lord British, Chris Roberts... Oh, how the mighty have fallen! It's been decades since they really finished a game production. To put it with Dylan: The Times They Are A'Changing.

I'm guessing you have not seen this...

The tone definitely does make me skeptical... If I was refunded $45k I think I would have refrained from the cheap shots even if I felt that way.

Has anyone actually been downloading the updates lately? I can't be bothered to do the updates, even on my fiber connection.
???
It must be a huge hastle to force your index finger to push the download button not to mention you might have to leave your pc on for a couple of hours.

This is basically an Early Access game, people who are interested in it's development and seeing the changes are playing the updates.

The difference here is that the downloads are massive and I've have not seen anything that resembles a game yet. Hence my comment that I'll start playing when it is out of the tech demo phase.

And even on my fast connection, running a torrent client to download 40gb+ data is not something I want to do only to discover that the game is not quite a game yet.

Not gonna lie, AC:Origins looks pretty damn sweet.
This is the time period/location I've been hoping they would do for a while now. The mechanics may be tired, but damn it looks gorgeous.

I returned PUBG after 2 hours since it felt too random for me. In Quake Champions I know that I suck when I get fragged

I never understood people making this comment... I get you might not like the game, but randomness is not a problem. I would say, over 90% of the time I can get fully loaded up on gear I'm happy with.

What I have noticed is that people tend to focus too much of getting gear rather than strategically positioning themselves when the map shrinks. They have to sprint to get in the boundary and get picked off in the process.

I was floored that this was the game they chose to follow up Chivalry with. "So lets update our huge hit.. take out the ground breaking sword fighting mechanic... add magic or something... profit!"

Yeah, I'll pass this one up even if it's for free.

I thought Google Fiber was going to save rural America? Politicians got to them also I guess.

The state of broadband in the USA is pathetic.
I'm in rural Georgia and have ATT fiber. Cable companies won't even attempt to compete in communities that are hooked up with gigabit fiber out here.

I've experienced no lag, almost no bugs (but I'm sure they exist), and decent frame rates. I do drop the details all the way down to get a maximum advantage, but the game still looks decent.

This game is huge fun, especially if you can get a squad together on one of the FP servers. I'm sure people have their share of issues, but the game has been mostly flawless for me.

Finally got a voucher for a blistering $8 discount on PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS at GMG. I figure I'll have to wait 4 years to get this discount on a Steam sale.

Might actually jump into this now... I picked it up when it first released, but it was too sparse with content to really get into. As is usual with FDEV, give them a year or so and it will fill out.

He cares because the game was supposed to be offline with an online component.

I get that people invested in the Kickstarter might have a gripe, but no one after the beta has grounds to complain... which has to be over 90% of the player base now.
