THQ had some "decent" (regarding the era) sports games for Gameboy and Gameboy Colour, some Madden and some FIFA. And some NBA Jam for Sega Genesis. NBA Jam is at least relevant, even today.THQ making a football game, There's something I never thought i'd see. But yeah I think there already is a few football management games on mobile too, Mostly because they cost next to nothing to make and you don't have to worry about performance or making 3D assests.
It's a shame we don't see more non licensed football games on console. When you think about how many was made during the PS1/2 era when devs weren't bothered about the lack of licenses then either, It's surprising there's not at least a couple more currently then the big 2.
I think there's more tennis games out then there are football games am i right?
Honestly I've played Football Manager for so many years and as good as the game is, the matches in 3D look like shit to me, the fluidity of animation looks like stuff from 90s FIFA or ISS and it really puts me off. That's why I always play with the 2D camera, but honestly, I can get behind even text-based football managers, it's casual fun, you don't have to set it up and wait a really long time to play like PES, FIFA or FM.It's all well and good until it gets to the goal animation at the end of the trailer, and then I just have to laugh. I can't go back to a Championship Manager style match engine, I just can't.
Yes and it will be such a game. In England what the manager is, is for other leagues the coach and with a sports CEO or something.[...] where you were more in charge of the club as much as the team.
Seems like it'll have the Bundesliga license (first and second divisions), both men and women.
Either way, it's really frickin' rich that the DFL grants league licenses to an upstart game and won't let Konami have even a fake German league.
Huh, that's news to me. I never knew there was such a thing.It's a different license. There are "simulation" licenses (that don't have any image rights access and so they're used for manager games), and there are the "full" ones games like PES and FIFA use.
PES 5 had a fake German league, and then the DFL successfully sued KONAMI, so they're not doing it anymore.Huh, that's news to me. I never knew there was such a thing.
How exactly does that prevent Konami from doing like they do with the Premier League, for example?
Yes, the same developer who originally produced the game named Anstoss, until developers of the game were acquired by EA to make Total Club Manager games. Then they lastly did FIFA Manager 14.Doing a bit of digging it seems Gerald Kohler, the co-founder of this studio, was one of the main producers of the FIFA Manager games.
More football games are always welcome, not expecting something incredible but it might be fun for a bit as a change from the usual games we play each year.
Thanks for the reminder.Game is getting released in a few minutes. Reviews are around the 70% mark. It could be a nice distraction from FM. I don't know if a custom licensed database will be soon available. Only the first 2 divisions of Bundesliga are officially licensed.
