    I couldn't see a thread for one of the most fun games I've played in ages! Is anyone else here playing it?

    Rocket League is essentially TopGear's car soccer, but in a cross platform game (yeah, PS4 players can play online with PC guys). Checkout the video below, it's wicked fun!

    Been eyeing this off for the past day or 2, looks pretty neat but thinking it might get a bit repetitive :Paranoid:

    Yeah game looks good but as others said it looks like it can be repetitive and at $20 seems a bit much for what it is?

    Picked it up and it's pretty meh, not sure what all the hype is about. I can't help to feel there is a strong element of luck in this game rather than skill. Good 5 minute time killer but after 3-4 games I'm already bored. Needed to be around the $10 mark to be a winner for me.

    Not really, majority of the time it's pure luck as to where the ball goes especially in 4v4. It's only rarely you see someone break free and i guess dribble the ball into the goal or use some sort of technique (double jump etc) to hit it in. Hell most of my goals are from just sitting back waiting for a shot then going in. It's like taking candy from a baby most of the time.

    Yeah 4v4 is a bit hectic, but 2v2 or 3v3 is pretty manageable and seems to reflect actual skill.

    Just yesterday i've noticed that when i enter a game, my keyboard doesn't work in it, well enter etc works, but WASD, shift/tab do not. Not sure why as it's all set to default in the control options, anyone have any ideas? Kinda can't play atm because of this.

    I got it free through PS+ on the PS4, and it's been a blast.

    Well... The title on this thread does not do this game justice at all. Bought this game yesterday, started playing at 7:00pm for 5 minutes and then went to bed at 2:00am.

    This game is a shit load of fun! There's some seriously good players out there too which highlights how much older and crappier I am at these games these days.

    Yep. Awesome game.

    4v4 is carnage and skill plays a very limited role in these matches.
    2v2 and 3v3 is where the games start getting interesting.

    I'm onto my second hand counting the number of games where overtime has gone on longer than the actual game itself.
    *BANG* Awesome shot!
    *BOOST, JUMP, FLIP* Even more epic save!
    *FLIP* Epic playmaking, great setup!
    Then an even better interception!
    Rinse, repeat!
