    Rocket League

    A few of us have picked this up and I have to say, it's great fun.

    If you've been thinking of getting it, I can certainly recommend it, if you've got no idea what rocket league is about, have some videos.

    Re: Rocket League

    It seems fun, but I'm not sure if it stays fun for the €20 pricetag.

    Is there enough to keep it interesting?

    Re: Rocket League

    I couldn't tell you to be fair, as I only got it myself a couple of days ago. I think it'll be good for longer than I initially thought however, the mixture of short games (5 minutes play time) and no unlocks beyond cosmetics mean that it's easy to dip in and out of. The game is 100 times more enjoyable with friends. I mean, it's fun if I'm playing by myself, but if I team up with some guys on mumble then I'm suddenly having a whale of a time irrespective of if I win or lose. It looked like a bit of a novelty that I just really wanted to try when I first saw it, after taking the plunge I reckon I'll be playing it much more than I initially thought.

    [insert positive comment about game here]

    Comments about Rocket League after an hour playing:
    It has good graphics, and runs smoothly at 60+ fps for me with maxed settings.
    The gameplay is fun, and as Seric says, the only customisations are cosmetic with no micro-transactions to be seen.
    The matchmaking is fast, and there are around 25 thousand people playing at a time.
    You will probably want a gamepad.

    Re: Rocket League

    Been playing a bit of this each day since I got it, mostly with Seric and Launch. It's in my regular game rotation now

    There's a nice skill curve to it and a fair few aspects you can always improve on:
    -Basic controls;
    -Advanced controls;
    -Hitting balls mid-air from standing/slow moving jumps jumps (and directing them);
    -Interceptions/tackles;
    -Playing off the wall (super tricky for me - turns my head inside itself)
    -Flying. Yes. FLYING.

    There's even like a little bit of meta-game with the kick-off - you have mirrored spawns and often the team that has the last contact on the ball sends it forward towards their opponents goal due to a ricochet effect. Do you send all your players to try and win it outright or leave 1 back to defend any fluke/stray balls that come into your half?

    @Logan (or anyone for that matter) give us a poke if you fancy a game bud

    100% skill

    Also, if anyone wants to feel really bad about their lack of skill give this guy a watch: http://www.twitch.tv/camgears - it feels like every single goal he scores is akin to the gifs from the OP.

    It is so very much worth a tenner, in my eyes. One evening with y'all pays that back.

    It seems superfluous that I say this every time, but imagine the developer of Rocket League reading this very thread and thinking now: "Hey, there are people on other OS's too that want to play my game. I can make money by releasing my pretty game to more platforms. Lets to Linux first!".
    Now that would be #win !!
