    Hachim Mastour is a great CAM. Kelechi Iheanacho can be a real solid pick for ST. Leon Bailey has great pace and good crossing ability.

    Probably a good time to get out; gaming has gone nowhere since then.

    Fallout 4 is everything I hoped it would be  Fap .  70 hours in and I can see it being bigger than Skyrim.  Which I ended up putting 180 hours into and didn't actually finish.

    Stupid question time.

    I'm about to get myself an X-box to play a bit of PES 2016 whilst I recover from my Achilles surgery.

    A bundle with fall-out 4 is nicely priced. I don't normally play games like that though so I'm wondering
    a) Once I've bought the game do I have to pay any extra money to play it?
    b) Does it work Ok as a single player game or do I need to go online to play against others. I'm not really an online gamer and don't really have massive time to dedicate to it, so just wondering if its OK to just sit in my room and play badly by myself

    I am not really an online gamer either, although starting to get into it with the xboxone.

    No, you will not have to pay anymore money.  

    The game was a half gig update on release (probably a bit more now) but that is actually small to average for updates.

    No, it is literally not online at all.  You will be playing from the disc ala old school.  There will be some DLC's coming, but that is pretty much always optional.

    If you get into Fallout 4 then be prepared for it to become a mild addiction.  I saw this deal this morning and it is deadset the best I have seen; it also means you get a Shooter as well (Battlefield) if you can't get into Fallout:

    https://www.jbhifi.com.au/features/games/Bundles/xbox-one-hot-offer-1/

    Unfortunately it's online only so willl have to wait for delivery I think, but:

    1 TB console;
    Fallout 4;
    Battlefield; 
    The Witcher 3; 
    Fallout 3 download.

    $499 + $12 freight.

    That is a very sweet deal.

    Does look like a good deal, but unfortunately they don't offer express delivery, and I want it ASAP as its a bit of an impulse purchase for my recovery time.

    After the next few weeks its not going to get a lot of playtime, so extra games aren't really that beneficial for me.

    Lol  It will if you get fully into Fallout mate.  

    And just so you know, Fallout 4 is a stand alone game from the others.  Although the mechanics and settings are very similar, you are not missing anything by not playing the previous ones.  You won't get a lot of instruction though so I would suggest the Wiki Fallout Portal-it is a comprehensive guide.  Or ask on here  Very Happy

    Nothing to do with desire/how good the game is.

    Once I'm recovered and back to work, I've only got about 2 hours a day of free time to myself where game playing is an option (maybe a bit more if the kids go to bed early and/or I don't mind mising out on my own sleep) . That time also includes any TV I want to watch, fantasy football planning, and the trivial detail of actually interacting with my wife.

    Weekends I'm generally doing stuff with the kids, so locking myslef in a room all day to play computer games is heavily frowned upon

    Some of the time that used to be taken up by actually playing sport is about to free itself up at least.

    and lastly, if O do find mself with enough time to spend a few hours a week on the X-box - its going to be with FIFA/PES first, before Fallout.

    Well if you get into Fifa and are any good HMU and we'll play a few games.

    I have to say I have devoted far too much time into Fallout already. I am on my second play through (I am on like the last main story mission on the first.) I just love messing with builds.

    Can't believe no one has jumped on the fact that the cow "plays badly with himself".

    That's udderly ridiculous.

    Someone needs to stand up and show him how it's done.

    So when you told me you had Placement coming up I assumed Hospital Placement.  You meant placing your arse on the couch with a catheter and a drip and not moving for a fortnight?

    Between Fallout and actual placement I have probably slept a total of 7 hours the last 3 weeks.

    On a side note Just Cause 3 will be out in December.

    Don't you do the whole house husband thing sometimes?  Like a couple of months off solid?

    How is the calf going anyway?  And more importantly, how is the xbox  Very Happy ?

    EDIT: can't believe I made a cow joke without realising  Lol

    The achilles being the attachment into the calcaneus for the calf muscle.
