Rocket League

been playing Rocket League (Playstation 4), for about a week now and am thoroughly enjoying it (also available for PC/Xbone/Switch)

at the core, it's basically a game about RC cars, with rocket-boosters playing football/soccer

you usually play 3v3 matches and the playing-field is aptly sized to accommodate for all players, while leaving plenty of room for strategy and planning

it has a relatively simple control-scheme (gas, break/reverse, power-slide, rocket-boost, jump) <-- these are your basic functions; but with the rocket-boost, you are able to perform various tricks, if you get good enough

having watched a game on-line (I watched esports for the first time ever), I noticed that 'the professionals', barely ever even touch the ground

I personally prefer not to play (on-line) multiplayer, due to various reasons; but this actually works quite alright on-line and it's easy enough to ignore whatever the kids might be yelling into their microphones... mute-button is a wondrous thing

the PS4 version is able to play against the PC version and vice-versa; same goes for the Xbone version - but the Xbone cannot play against the PS4 (nor Switch? afaik), due to... 'apparent reasons'(?) (MS, SONY, Nintendo all having their own 'on-line' thingie?) - but supposedly they are working on finding a solution

the game itself has been created in Unreal Engine 3 (I believe) and runs perfectly smooth, whilst having pleasant visuals and fast-paced gameplay

there are (of course) a variety of tricks to learn, especially how to make best use of the rocket-booster (and subsequently learning to fly), double-jump with forward-spin +boost, etc.

I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoy arcade-football/soccer and/or RC-like cars

I paid about 25€ for a brand new copy, which granted that the game is three years old wasn't necessarily the cheapest game in the bin; but it has given me plenty of fun thus far and I highly suspect that it will keep entertaining me for much longer

the matches themselves are five minutes (add a few minutes due to replay, etc) and thus I am able to jump in, play a match until the end and then just log out and continue with my daily chores, or whatever

a perfect blend of arcade-style racing and football, coupled with excellent controls and physics and you've got yourself a nice little gem, that technically isn't groundbreaking in any sense of the word, but what it does, it does good

Pillars of Eternity II is (of course) coming to a console near you.

ain't no such thing as "PC-exclusive" in today's market, not when it comes to big-budget; too many moneys to be had:

---QUOTATION---

Getting the most out of your PlayStation 3 in 2018
https://www.destructoid.com/getting-the-most-out-of-your-playstation-3-in-2018-486183.phtml
---END QUOTATION---



it's worth mentioning that the Playstation 3 is indeed a fine console; personally I (currently) have two hooked up; one to my CRT and one to my HDTV

they are quite sufficient for streaming both Netflix and HBO if you ask me, also you can use it to stream movies/music from your PC and there's plenty of interesting titles for it

besides, the reason I have two PS3's is because I actually found 2 (one slim and one 'phat' model) of them in a (literal) trash-pile; the same one, mind you... just with a few months apart; the slim one working 100%, whilst the phat one had its HDMI-port broken (hence hooked up to CRT)

I gave the slim to my brother, since I already owned one (two, since I found the phat one), but that'll give you an idea of what people in my region think the PS3 is worth
