I brought it up in the Random Thought thread, and now it has its own thread to call home! If you own a Playstation 4, subscribe to PS+, and are reading this in July, congratulations you may already be a winner and own this game! Also available on this "Steam" thing on PC for $20. Rocket League is a futuristic competitive car acrobatics soccer game with hats. I mean, that's what it is. Don't look at me funny. It has been lauded from all sections of the internet, and in addition to being a surprise breakout hit, people are speculating that it could be the next real innovator to hit the competitive gaming scene. Over the past week it has seen nearly 100k concurrent views on Twitch, and has garnered audiences larger than those watching DOTA, Hearthstone, and Counter-Strike, sometimes combined. Talk about cars wearing sombreros doing barrel rolls and bicycle kicks here.
Formula 1: What is it, and why does it matter to me? according to Wikipedia, formula 1 is " the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA)." But what does mean? Wikipedia will be no help, so I turned to my old friend Webster: so there you have it. As to why it matters, it probably doesn't. It does matter to me though, inasmuch as I quite enjoy it, so I figured i'd make a thread to see if any other forum goers were interested. I started watching for the first time this year, and have ended up getting really into it ( enough to buy tickets to see the American Grand Prix in Austin). That's notable, as it is really the only sport that I can say that about. Now I understand what people like about sports though! Anyway, I started at the first race of this season, the Australian Grand Prix in March, which I enjoyed, but I wasn't sold on the sport until the 2nd race in Malaysia, and the 3rd, the Bahrain Grand Prix, was an incredible race as well. So I wanted to talk about motorsports, mostly just F1 though because I don't follow any others. How do I watch it, you ask? Well if you are in the united states, not easily. If you wake up at 5 am pacific time to watch the races live in europe, you can stream it from some of those rather illicit sports streaming sites. I use squirrelstreams usually. Alternatively, you can acquire coverage of it after the fact if you know where to look. Or you can pay for NBC sports, but that is only for watching it live as well and requires a hefty cable package. Here's a picture of a car and a jet and Daniel Ricciardo, the smilingest man in F1: Here's a picture of my cat:
