  1. Alright then folks, given that Golf Club 2019 is on the horizon (I'm not sure who fancies picking it up?) and I'm about to start a new job, I'll make this my last round of golf on EG I think. Anyway, with that being said... RGA Tour VIII - Round 1 is LIVE!
  2. I think I'm gonna pick this up but I get the impression it might get delayed if it's supposed to be out this year. I wonder why they haven't announced a release date.
  3. Shhheeettt no worries, only just saw this message. I've defaulted it to an @Petey win, will look to kick off the next round next weekend.
  4. I just re-installed it on PC - 1080/60 bitches. Couldn't get on with it fully the first time round though, another Persona 4 @Mitchell.
  5. Mugen is fine. What platform or tool are you using?
  6. Thanks to all those that took part but now the Tour is over. Congrats to the winners: @Petey v @Theholyhogg The tabs have been updated, please play through the MUK Masters this week!
  7. Totally valid this. I'm calling for Rashford and Vardy to replace these two. Sterling just does a whole lot of running which amounts to running and loses the ball too much under pressure. Alli has just been a ghost, we've been carrying him and his workrate last night was really poor. I know Kyle Walker gifted a chance last night but I think he's been a decent performer up until that point and got us out of jail with his pace a couple of times. He was fatigued towards the end and that led to some mistakes.
  8. This deserves more love. Amazing scenes, but let's just beat teams in 90 minutes from now on eh?
  9. Amazing counter attack but FFS.
  10. Got to admit, I properly laughed out loud at this. I hope Japan don't throw it away.
  11. I've had a lot of experience with a lot of different emulators and setups... I find that what you gain from convenience in RetroArch, you lose in everything else. It's clunky, unintuitive, requires far more manual set up than other tools and major updates are far too infrequent. My current set up uses Launchbox as a front end, manually linked to the latest version of each emulator (PPSSPP, PCSX2, Cemu etc). It takes advantage of the neat integration of assets, roms and emulation tools as well as the scraping capabilities. When you drag new ROMs to a folder, it takes three clicks to detect them and another three to import than (assuming they are named correctly) to grab metadata. I'm not aware of anything better? I've meant to grab a recording of my setup for a while, when I do, I'll post it here.
  12. Final round is live folks, best of luck!
  13. I like the one on the left. I favour black and yellow kits normally too and Puma branding. Shame from a distance it will look like Newcastle United...
  14. Had one, no games, got rid of it. I'm more about emulation stuff these days and I'm quite selective about what I play now too.
  15. I normally get the urge to play it again every couple of years, I stick with it for a few weeks and get really invested. Then I remember that I am absolutely terrible at it and no amount of guidance has helped me improve. Also, these days, I just have a lot less time
  16. I'm pretty sure he's trolling, or he doesn't watch the Premier League very much.
  17. A few decent players? U mad bro. Half of their first XI could walk into any team in the world. You can't say that about England. Aside from France, they have, on paper, the best team in the tournament. Certainly from a potential perspective.
  18. Southgate knows the score: "If I go and headbutt Roberto in the last five minutes, then you'll know that maybe we're taking a different approach to getting through!" http://www.skysports.com/football/news/12016/11419138/gareth-southgate-says-england-playing-for-win-against-belgium
  19. Imagine this scenario tomorrow... England and Belgium are stuck in a stalemate. The clock has just hit 80 minutes. Neither team particularly wants to win. But they can't be seen playing for a negative result either. During a brief water break, Southgate calls Kane over... Southgate: "Sweep the leg." Kane: "..?" Southgate: "You have a problem with that?" Kane: "No gaffer!?" Southgate: "No Mercy!" Then, any one of the following situations plays itself out: - Any player, who isn't already on a yellow in the competition, tries to scythe a Belgium player down after the 85th minute - Stones "accidentally" wrestles an attacker to the ground during a corner (ala Panama) - Maguire "accidentally" handles the ball in the box during an inswinging set piece - Walker "accidentally" swings his arm in an attacker's face again - Pickford, seemingly timewasting in the dying seconds, keeps the ball at his feet and "accidentally" proceeds to turn around and kick it in his own net - Or, Pickford decides to "accidentally" keep the ball in his hands for longer than 6-seconds, gifting Belgium an indirect free-kick inside the box - Kane gets back on corner duty It reminds me of that South Park episode where the kids don't want to play baseball over summer so they attempt to throw games, within the rules, to gift their opponent a win. I know you have to play the big boys at some point and you have to beat the best to win but the winner's side of the draw has at least 4 teams that could realistically win it, compared to only Spain on the runner-up side of the bracket. Barring any surprises, of course. I think it would do England a world of good to put a decent run together ready for one of the really big hitters in the semis.
  20. Boy, we eating chicken dinner tonight... Bagged myself first place, gets half decent from 12:15. Hip firing the shotgun and the lack of recoil on sniper rifles is way over powered. The game is a mad dash to find those weapons quickest and then get a decent position.
  21. I'm not getting carried away with anything but this tournament, with teams having inconsistent form and the introduction of VAR, anything could happen. However, if England don't win it, it will be the World Cup equivalent of Arsenal's 2015-16 Premier League campaign when Leicester won the title. Never a better opportunity. Though using the same adage, Denmark are going to win it.
  22. Aye I was going to revive this thread on that... I haven't managed to get the Switch one working just yet but I've been testing the PS3 and Wii U emulators - both are excellent. LaunchBox is great too, such a fantastic program that I'm moving away from RetroArch as what you gain in convenience, you lose in feature set.
  23. Spreadsheet updated folks, Round 3 is GO!
