I'm feeling the excitement for the start of a new Premier League season. So, here are some video game screenshots from PES 2021 to go along with it.
PES 2021 is probably the best looking football video game I've ever played. And when I say that, I mean both in terms of graphics and player animations.
And the ball. You have got to see how the ball moves in this game. I played FIFA 22 for a bit by the way, just to see what I'm missing. The ball physics in FIFA 22 just doesn't compare to what you get in PES 2021. The ball physics in PES 2021 makes the ball one of the stars of the show. It makes it move and bounce in a scarily realistic manner. The ball physics is definitely one of the best features in PES 2021.
These screenshots by the way were taken during my 2023-2024 Master League season. I play Manchester United and have new players in the team (in case you wonder why I have Manolas and Marquinhos on my team). I'll explain more about the lineup changes I've made in a future game log.
Manchester United's stadium is rendered beautifully in the game
Pregame cinematic – A game against Arsenal, which is one of the licensed teams in the game. I mention “licensed teams” because...
Couple more shots of the Mazda FC RX-7 in Forza Horizon. This time the screenshots were taken as the sun went down in the game. It's amazing how far we've come in racing video games. We used to only have static weather during game play. Now we have dynamic weather and even the passage of time in a racing game. Coming from the 8-bit racing games I used to play when I was a kid, today's games are pretty awesome!
For someone who spent most of his time playing Fallout 4, switching to Skyrim was a breath of fresh air. You go from desolate wastelands, to striking scenery like these.
This first screenshot was taken right after you exit Helgen, which is where the game tutorial takes place. At this point, you've already seen a dragon, engaged in melee, range or magic combat (depending on your preference), and you're basically just itching to get out into the world to see what kind of story you can write.
I previously decided to move my Game Screenshots series to my micro journal. That didn't really work out for me as I have since let my micro.blog subscription expire. So, the series is back on this site. And since I've been playing some Guild Wars 2 lately, I'm starting it off with a new post about Guild Wars 2.
This is my Human Guardian. He is the character I use the most in the game. In this screenshot, he is wearing the Luminous Heavy Armor set. You can only get this armor set on your sixth year anniversary of owning the game. I've been playing Guild Wars 2 on and off since 2012. Me and my wife were actually beta testers for the game. This is still the only MMORPG that I will go back to time and time again.
Purchased Elite Dangerous a week ago while it was on sale for the Xbox One. I first learned about this game from one of Brandon's posts. It is a wonderful, open-ended space exploration/flight simulation game. The game is rendered beautifully on an Xbox One. Here are a few screenshots of the game, plus a link to the album I created for it.
Arcas is just about to unleash a shot at goal. The defender tries to close in with a sliding tackle, but he's too late.
Arcas is one of the players you get when playing Master League with the original lineup. He's the most expensive player in the lineup. So, you might be tempted to ship him off to try and save money in your salary budget. I think that would be a mistake. If you hang on to him, he will bloom into your team's very own superstar. Later on, he'll have the chance to become a “Legend” at your team.
F-15E Strike Eagle flying over the desert region of Roca Roja.
There are three variants of the F-15 in Ace Combat 7: there’s the F-15C Eagle, the F-15J and there’s this one. The F-15E Strike Eagle is the most expensive one out of the three. And it is the only one that can be equipped with air-to-ground munitions. The other two are mainly air superiority fighters, while this one is a multirole fighter.
