Rocket League is Awesome, if you have PS+ you HAD no excuse, NONE

Postby JaoSming on Sun Jul 19, 2015 5:23 pm

Seriously, its "free" this month, and its pretty much GOTY. Rocket cars playing soccer. Easy to grasp, easy to pick up and play, tough to master, and amazing to watch pros.

Angry Joe probably has the most concise detailed explanation of it

Now go buy, and Steam friends, give me an excuse to get the PC version.

I knew you'd be all over this game. I love the concept, and the price tag, but despite playing the tutorials, I'm just hopelessly bad at it.

Yeah I saw you and Oznogrd playing it the other day. Looks interesting, I might give it a shot. I prefer playing regular soccer

And PC PS4 crossplay... Well, that's the way to do it (*cough* *cough* 2K). Wonder how they solved cheating... Dedicated server with no client trust?

My biggest problem with this game is that I just finished Arkham Knight. So every time I'm just to the side of where I want to be, I find myself holding the left trigger and pushing sideways on the left stick.

Just got this. It was surprisingly fun. I like the car customization and the season mode picking your team and teammates... Those parts remind me of blitz the league

It's ridiculous how fun this game is, even if I kind of suck at it (still).

I managed to put together a highlight video of my first hat-trick though.

Them bots. Seriously though, I lost a match to bots 5:4. Four of the goals I got was from my own bots.

I feel like the teammates are smarter when I played 4 on 4. They sucked in 3 on 3

I played for an hour and a half tonight, and mashed together the highlights. No idea still if I am considered "good" or not, but still having a ton of fun. I only play 1v1 or 3v3 online.

I like to think I'm good. I scored 3 goals online in my last game. But then there are times when I'm playing season vs the computer and I completely whiff or miss a shot I should have made and realize that I am terrible lol

I find the CPU teammate sabotages me a lot. Whenever I have position and a clear plan in my mind of what I'm going to do, the teammate always knocks the ball away from me. The other day, when I was playing in OT, I was tracking back with the ball and the CPU knocked it from my possession and into its own goal. That shit drives me nuts.

So today I managed to do something that resembles a highlight for the first time.

That actually happens a ton to me online with real players, but not offline with the CPU.

Splitscreen is a lot of fun, but I'm still the worst - struggling to win on Pro. Both games I've played online have resulted in disconnections, but in general, I don't have much time with the ball.

Online games have had really good connections. Today I got my first laggy game which was unplayable. But I quit and got right back into a lag-free game

noice, but disappointed that wasn't a highlight of one of your goals from our 1v1 games

I felt like I needed to change from my crown hat after playing against you.

I seriously need to quit. Its fun but its not, I feel like I could have more fun playing other games....but I'm good enough to have fun and be competitive online.....but terribly inconsistent and will give up completely stupid goals which frustrates the shit outta me.
