Progress with my PGATOUR2K21 career Mode continues at a steady pace, I’m now just over midway through the golfing season, and continue to perform quite admirably.
The Players championship trophy just one of many i have picked up, although I have since upped the difficulty, by using the in-game sliders I have upped the AI skill level, and in creased my swing difficulty from Pro-Am to professional, giving a much more reduced compensation gauge for the swing, meaning the backswing and down swing on the right stick now need to be pretty damn accurate and straight for every shot, other wise the flight path of the ball will deviate depending on how your swing is performed.
This took a little getting used to, as a nice 7 under par first round at the Legends Championship saw me in 5th place going into the second round, but then a 3 over saw me drop, and finish 46th in the placings, missing out on valuable FEDEX cup points.
However, the lead still looks quite healthy in the rankings, and with another 8 or so tournaments left to play, I should be nailed on to finish top 25 and qualify for the end of season FEDEX cup.
Below are a few highlights from my last few tournaments:
In other news, I read that FIFA21, due for an October release still uses EA’s proprietary FrostBite Engine, but that the makers of the Frosty toolsuite now work for EA DICE, so have given up all development responsibility for the tools, friends of the programmer have taken over responsibility but development and future releases will be much more minimal and slow, in order to keep the tool ‘ticking over’.
FIFER who produces the PC mods for FIFA games, has enlisted the services of a talented programmer and aims to make his own FIFA21 editing and modding tool suite, so will be eagerly watching that space, realistically though, the tools wont be available for a good few months after release so looks like it may be back to the standard PS4 then PS5 for FIFA21 until the PC mods are ready anyway.
My other free time has been spent catching up with some TV and a couple of well recommended shows are ‘The Fall’ on Netflix, starring Gillian Anderson as a bolshy detective enlisted to track down a serial killer who strangles women then poses them, its a very gritty, graphic series, and very well acted, well worth a go.
Also on Netflix, Cobra Kai, the Karate Kid saga continues, the series, currently with 2 seasons takes over many years later as Johnny Lawrence and Daniel Larusso are all grown up, (played by the original actors) and their paths once again cross, reigniting a lifelong rivalry.
Great nostalgia, seeing the original cast, with flashbacks to the iconic film which was a huge part of my childhood, just good old fashioned fun.
Hope everyone is keeping safe and getting back to some form of normality, whatever that may be, next week i will try to post some content of a different game, will see what’s in the pile, any suggestions leave them in the comments.
