Hello, and welcome to part two of my contribution to Our Year in Games 2016. I’m continuing my tale of my year in games by talking about another selection of games that weren’t necessarily released in 2016. I have played new games this year, honest! But a lot of older games have played some part in shaping my year in games. Here’s four of them.
When I reviewed Football Manager 2015 way back last November, I came away without being drawn in like usual. That was largely down to the poor match engine, but the tinkering around the edges hadn’t capture the imagination. But recently I’ve been delving back in…
This past week was a big one for fans of Football Manager, a documentary on the game was released in select cinemas across the UK, a release date was confirmed (November 7th for those who didn’t read the title of the post) and a massive amount of new features and improvements have been revealed. Good times indeed.
Earlier today I was talking with a colleague at work about the upcoming start of the domestic football season. Yes, the World Cup was brilliant and yes, the Champions League qualifying rounds have been going for a few weeks, but the start of the domestic season is something else. It also got me to start thinking…”when will the new Football Manager be announced? It is normally at this time of the year isn’t it?” And lo, when I go home and checked my emails, word was with me that the game had indeed been announced today.
