Rules and Maltese don't go together. :P

At best, it's funny, as in cases like this.
Normally, it's annoying, as in total lack of regard for traffic rules.
At worst, it's worrying, as in people getting away with murder (literally and metaphorically).

Exactly. Take Ireland, for example. When I was there a couple of months ago, I noticed so many similarities with us Maltese in this regard. It's the only place I've ever visited where hazard lights seem to mean, like in Malta, "be right back", for example. They don't seem too fussed about rules either, and that made me feel at home. Yet, somehow, I can't imagine them letting it get so out of hand as in the most serious of cases.

It does have a charm, but sometimes it gets too much here.

Well, since I think I'm one of the people least likely to be accused of thinking in stereotypes, I think I can take a one-time shot:

Just platinum'd LiS-BtS...

Was skeptical at first if this prequel was even necessary and/or would be good... Coming from partly another team just added to that - but it is a good game... A few weird untied ends and inconsistencies, but overall, good!

And I just found out that FCBM chose different from me

In the end?

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I thought the first two episodes were good, at times better than the first game. The third episode was disappointing and rushed though.

Yup in the end...

Yeah kinda - though I don’t think any part quite matched the original... I don’t really know why they always do it episodic anyway - esp. given the way they market it...
I think they fail to catch Rachel's "winning manner" and the double life that she lives is ignored completely... There’s A LOT of wasted potential there - if you decide to do a prequel I thought that's what would come off more...

The very last scene skips 2 whole years. That's too much. We had so much of things like Rachel x Frank in the first game that it felt like the prequel just didn't give enough. I thought the characterisation (Rachel's and Chloe's) was done very well, though.

I also love how I nailed The Tempest completely even though I completely ignored the script. :lol: But trust me to do that... I actually looked up videos on YT on the other outcomes for that, I was quite curious.

I think I said this before but the final choice was a bit underwhelming. I don't imagine it changes the ending all that much.

Did you play the bonus episode?

Not yet...

You’re right, I didn’t even realize it was two years... Actually, given the way it was panned out I would’ve thought YOUR choice would change a lot... Like the different endings in part 1...

Well, I like the series, that’s for sure...
They've been working on part two since 2016 - I guess we might hear something around E3...

Yes, I think they already confirmed we'll be getting it this year. I think it's whole new characters etc. (as it should be) so hopefully it lives up to the name.

Has anyone played a recent PES game? Wondering if PES 18 is worth it at €14.39 (I sold FIFA)
