    Chris reacted to GM Games in [GM Games] ESPN story references General Manager (GM) Games   
    This week GM Games was contacted by Dave Wilson, Senior Editor of ESPN. Our conversation talked about the history of sports sims, the differences between AAA sporting titles, his family and the current simulation replays of events lost. It was an honor to be considered for reference.
    For the organization, being at this since 2011, it is a milestone to receive the acknowledgement of the effort for sim sports lovers. It is with pleasure to share the article from ESPN for our users and hope more people find their way in to simulation sport gaming.
    Dave references and chronicles many of the sports simulation developers we have been including on our website for years. You will find these games under our categories either by sport or platform in our navigation menu.
    Unfortunately, it is an odd time for sports considering the loss of march madness, delay of major league baseball, and the postponed NBA and NHL playoff schedule. Let’s hope that we get the real thing back as soon as possible.
    For those indoors and are learning about these games, you will find a list of free games here to try. Please join the GM Games discord server and tell us about your favorite games or career stories.
    Signed, Chris, Director of GMGames.org

    Football Manager has been my go to since the mid 90's when it was Championship Manager.  I've played every version that Steam has put up and every year I have a million stories to tell - and even better, it exploded my knowledge within the sport itself - so much so that I will see a young player get bought by the big clubs and I get excited for him - because I scouted him and made him a star at Derby County the year before in-game.  I would love to know of other sports sims that deliver like that - because I'd be in!

    Chris got a reaction from StevieY in Review of Game Plan Hockey Manager – Where simplicity is the key (rainsilent)   
    With limited resources to put into development simplicity is key and it is what makes GPHM shine.
    Before I start the review of Game Plan Hockey Manager I have to note a few things. First, the game has only two people working on it and they work on it in the spare time that they have in their busy lives. Second, this game has a $1.99 monthly subscription fee. It has a one month free trial though for anyone that wants a taste before they jump in. Finally, I have been playing this game since June of 2015. I enjoy the game. There is going to be some degree of bias as a result. I am going to try to remove as much as possible for the review.
    Game interface
    The game interface itself has a rather basic look and isn’t that flashy. It sticks to being rather basic, outside of the ever present faded, large team logo in the background on the left, while having a few nice touches here or there depending upon where you are in the menus. On the team page there is a team jersey in the top right with the logo and team name on the front. If you are on a player page there is a team jersey with the player’s last name and number on the back. It is a nice small touch to an otherwise simple visual interface.

    Chris reacted to PointGuard in The Tournament That Wasn't   
    Although the NCAA Tournament has been cancelled in 2020, fear not!  For in DDSCB2020 there is not CoronaVIrus, and DDSCB2020's Tournament Maker allows the BIg Dance to come alive.
    Since only a few conference tournaments concluded before the cancellation was announced, the results of any conference tournaments that were played have been disregarded.  Teams have been selected and seedings made based upon conference standings, overall records, polls and RPI...and my own whims.
    Real World Mod Option #4 was used to create the association upon which Tournament Maker was based for this DDSCB2020 NCAA Tournament.  So each team has real-life coaches.  But players for teams are fictional, of course, rather than this season's actual real-life players...so results may vary from what you expect.
    Now time to get started so brackets can be constructed and tournament games played.

    The preseason is over and we're ready for our inaugural season in the Canadian Premier League. The odds have us in 3rd for winning the title this season while the 4 other expansion teams fall in the 9th to 12th range. How will we do in our first two games vs Force FC on the road and then our home-opener against Pacific FC.

    Chris reacted to chowderhead9 in BBCF 2015 and Beyond   
    I first picked up a copy of BBCF many years ago.  I really enjoyed the game and played it as often as family, work, and grad school demands permitted.  Fast forward to this past Holiday season and I found myself with some vacation time, good bowl games to watch, and an urge to start up BBCF again.  As a long-time member of the OOTP boards, I have been posting my ongoing "career" of leading the San Jose State Spartans . While I enjoy the OOTP game and its community, I didn't think it was appropriate for me to continue to post in a forum for what is sure to be at some-point an amazing FOF / OOTP collaboration. So with that said, I hope this community finds some enjoyment in following along with my San Jose State Spartans.

    San Diego State 31 --- San Jose State 3 Wow, total domination by San Diego State (7-5). The Aztecs jumped out to a quick lead and never were threatened in this one. In getting the 31 to 3 win over San Jose State (5-5), the Aztecs held the Spartans to just 214 net yards on the day and a dismal 9 first downs. QB Tony Lima was a pathetic 9 for 41 on passing, and RB Juan Moreno could only eek out 52 rushing yards on 20 carries. What a disappointing effort by the Spartans! #onestepforwardtwostepsback

    Chris reacted to GM Games in [GM Games] 2020 NBA Roster Update for Dynasty Manager 16 (DM16)   
    It is finally here. We have talked endlessly about getting an NBA roster update on #dynasty-manager chat. And now, amazingly, a major roster update for Dynasty Manager 16. Don’t ask us if there will a new version of the game, we have no clue. We do know that InczeTigate is busy working on another sports project (ssshhh… Patrick Mahomes, Touchdown!)
    This is a reminder that GM Games is THE official host of Dynasty Manager 16 (logos & roster files) DM16 As per the game owner.

See the above tabs for DM16 information or game features.
    Let’s take a moment to thank this beautiful bastid VierchasLitofcas. 
    He is asking that if you love his roster updates, then please send a couple bucks to keep the updates coming. It took many many hours for his update to be put together and tested.  [ https://paypal.me/VierchasLitofcas?locale.x=da_DK ] … You can reach him on our official discord server channel for Dynasty Manager 16.
    Instructions:
    You can download the CSV and make changes if you wish. If you want to import this roster and logos directly to your game, type the following URL website link EXACTLY as it is displayed here (Case sensitive you must the exact URL! It is http with an “s”!)

    In an "abundance of caution" collegiate basketball was cancelled due to the GuinnessVirus thus ending this dynasty.
