Tour de France 2015 Gameplay Trailer

Last week we had a "teaser trailer" which had some nice cinematics but told us nothing new about the upcoming games. Well Cyanide/Focus have now given us something genuinely interesting with a Gameplay Trailer for the TDF console games! Watch it on Youtube here.

Nice looking graphics and a re-designed HUD. Tons of official and licensed teams and riders, but still without a few here and there (Sky, Etixx, BMC and Trek missing). But it's got all the stages of the 2015 Tour.... plus the Criterium International and Criterium Dauphine! Gotta say i'm excited by ProTeam mode as well as the Descent Challenge mode.

All told it looks very good with some nice advances and additions compared to previous versions. Even if they are still obsessed with the thought of Pinot in Yellow and him sprinting on the Champs-Élysées.

Giro Week Three

The culminating week of the seasons first Grand Tour. The opening two weeks have been packed with action and talking points and even if Alberto now holds a sizable gap to Aru if we've learnt anything so far it's that this Giro is just ready to flip things on their head at any moment!

Keep abreast of it all in the 2015 Giro d'Italia - Week Three (24th - 31st May) thread. Every day members of the site provide some top quality stage previews and then everyone can discuss the events as they happen and long into the following evening.

ManGame Madness

The Transfer Period finished on Thursday evening and the dust has just about settled. The PT managers are busy planning their riders seasons whilst the PCT and CT managers will get started on those tasks in the coming days. WildCards have been given out and the pre-season Bay Cycling Classic series is setting up and becoming a real cornerstone of the season.

Story Game Summary

EPIC is currently running through Continental Championships. Taylor Phinney (BMC) won the American TT.  Chris Froome (Sky) won the European TT. Po-Ding Kim (CSS) win the Afrusian TT. The Road Race events should be coming this week.

CX:ND Season 2 is picking speed back up. Next up is the first NES event to showcase the "best of the rest" riders in Perth. There are still some excellent talents on show and it should be a great race before the circus moves onto the Americas.

Thread of the Week

The Giro thread would be the obvious pick, and by now you should know i don't do the obvious pick if i can help it. I also refuse to pick the Eurovision thread. I am still going to go with a Cycling forum thread though. The Giro is far from the only race hapening at the moment so my Thread of the Week is the Other Races 2015 thread!

PCM.daily DB team back in business for PCM2015
As you all may have noticed, the PCM.daily DB team hasn't been able to create a 2015 DB for PCM2014. The main reason for this was the fact that we didn't have enough team members available to cover the amount of work that needed to be done.

I haven't been able to do anything myself for a while too, because I've been busy with school. At the moment I've got a little spare time, before I have another few nusy weeks at school. In 7 weeks my summer holiday starts, so I'll have plenty of spare time to work on PCM.daily projects.

In the next few weeks I will gather with the current members of the DB team, so we can decide a few things:
1. Whether we will create a 2015DB for PCM2014
2. If we need additional members for the Expansion Pack for PCM2015
3. What will be the features in the 2015 EP added or left out compared to the 2014 EP

We will keep you posted on any updates right here!

PCM 2015 Trailer

Speaking of PCM 2015, Focus have released a short teaser trailer for the next edition of the game.

Giro Week 2

Boy is the Giro delivering some great racing! Entering week two we've shifted over to a new thread for discussions here. Daily previews go alongside tons of in-race and post-race chat as we make sense of the action and share opinions. Good thing the race keeps throwing talking points at us every day!

ManGame Madness

The opening week of transfers has been rather nuts and seriously all over the place. The Wage record was broken and re-broken as teams took advantage of a possibly one-time opportunity to bag some of the single biggest names in the game. Another season of many teams changing divisions means it's still hard to get a read on how things have shaken out and we probably won't until Transfers finish on Thursday.

Thread of the Week

The Giro Week 1 thread would seem like an obvious choice, too obvious. This week i'm giving Thread of the Week to the surprisingly popular 2015 Tour of California thread. Cavendish vs Contador and the continued explosion of Alaphillipe has made for some great story-lines and the race isn't quite done yet.

Forza Giro!

The years first Grand Tour kicked off yesterday and the site has been hotly anticipating this event for weeks. You can play it in game using Eyolfur's stages whilst you watch it on TV. You can discuss the opening week in the Week One thread. You can follow the ever popular Velogames league (though it's too late to join now). SotD is giving us an all new Giro-Game that looks like a good bit of fun. And just incase all of that slips you by the Giro will be in our site banner until the end of the race. Don't say PCM.Daily doesn't do real cycling!

Man-Game Madness

If you are not a Man-Game manager the next couple of weeks are gonna be flooded with Man-Game action. The Transfer season kicks off today and all 80 managers are involved. Prepare for litteraly thousands of related comments and hundreds of related threads in the Man-Game section. Madness never quite described the Man-Game as accurately as right now.

Story Games Summary

EPIC finished Season 2 Part 1! The Volta Limburg, won by Kittel for Belkin, caps the Part 1 racing. Break 1 is a chance for teams to pick up one or two new EPIC riders and to upgrade their riders stats. We've also got the Conteintenal Championships to look forwards to there as well. Nice to the pace pick up a bit after the last couple of weeks.

CX: A New Dawn began it's second season proper with two races completed. The quality of the reports and responses are just incredible. The third race is due today and it's a game well worth following even if you arn't taking part.

Thread of the Week

You would think it would be a battle of the Giro related threads! Things like the Previews/Hype thread, or the Week One thread or the Giro-Game thread. But no you'd be wrong, mostly because i already mentioned them. I'm very much split this week between two Database related threads, so why not award two Thread of the Weeks? Calculated Stats Based On Final Results and Udoi DB All Time share the award this week. The first is a really interesting Stats idea by TankNL that has taken some big steps forwards recently. The second is an All Time DB by Udoi that looks really interesting.

More New PCM/TDF 15 Screens

As reported on Wednesday, Cyanide gave us 4 more screenshots of the upcoming 2015 versions of their games. We got two views of the Champs-Élysées and two views of climbing. Also visible were about 11 more fully licensed team kits from various WT and PCT teams. You can read the full thing below and click Read More on that article to look at the pictures.

2015 Giro Stages For PCM14

The years first Grand Tour is bearing down on us and now you can play the route in PCM14! Eyolfur has made all 21 stages of the 2015 race for PCM14 and released them over on the official Cyanide forums. Or if you don't fancy the trip there you could just click this download link. The stages are fantastic quality and Eyolfur really has done a top quality job!

April Graphics

If you're adding some new stages, why not add some new graphics at the same time? Just like most months we have a nice variety of members releasing various jerseys all through the past month of April. You can check out the top selection of them and then vote for your favorites by going to the April Graphic Contest. Even if you don't want to vote it's a great way to easily find some great jerseys.

Man-Game and Story Games

The Man-Game off-season ramped up a level this week. A ton of new information has been released about race's, HC/C2HC bands, XP gains, taxes and more. All this signals that Renewals is getting ever closer and that the madness of transfers is pressurizing nicely. That said two teams were already cut this week for failing to meet certain expectations, which was a shame. But the MG world must quickly move onwards!

The ICL found a bit of pace with some more events this week like Suisse and Rheinland-Pfalz. EPIC ground through the Dwars Door Vlaanderen. Hopefully these two games won't be slowed too heavily by increased MG activity.

CX: A New Dawn is on the edge of starting Season 2. Sign-ups closed this week with a great selection of new riders and members taking part. Even if you didn't sign-up i have to recommend following along because the quality of everything in the game is amazing, like this season preview!

Thread of the Week

Once again it is clearly going to come from the Cycling sub-forum. We are well into the depths of the season with multiple races every day at all levels from NCup to World Tour to Track records. The Other Races 2015 thread is the best place to keep up with all the non-WT action and is updated multiple times a day with PCS embeds. The News in "Month" threads are great to keep up with wider events like Alex Dowsett's succesful Hour Record attempt. But my Thread of the Week goes to Tour de Romandie 2015 where the pre-Giro build-up race packed in the action and discussion.

More PCM/TDF15 Images
Pro Cycling Manager 2015

Expect more and more information to become available through May from Cyanide. The games wil be released in June and they continue to build up the buzz. 4 new images of the games today showing us more hints at content.

We get our first view of the Champs-Élysées with, what i assume to be Contador, attacking the the Yellow Jersey. And a dramatic view of the Eiffel Tower showing off more teams. The other two images are climbing shots with big pelotons, looking as good as ever. You can now start to see a lot more jerseys as well like Lotto, Garmin, MTN, LottoNL, Astana, Movistar, Lampre, Katuha, Tinkoff, Trek, Ag2r and hints of more.

If are you interested you can find the full post on either their Facebook or Twitter accounts. Or click Read More to view the images. Or they will soon be available in our Screenshots section, which will be updated as more become available.

No PCM.Daily 2015 DB for PCM14

As you might have picked up or guessed there will not be a Daily 2015 DB for PCM14. The DB team has been very quiet on the subject for a while and this is official confirmation there will not be a new DB incoming for PCM14. That doesn't mean there aren't 2015 DB's around, check out the Downloads section for some very good ones. This is not the end of the PCM.Daily DB and we hope to be back with one for PCM15 much later in the year.

All New PCM/TDF15 Screens

Yep Cyanide gave us a first public look at PCM/TDF15 when they released two screenshots yesterday. You can read about it in yesterdays article which also contains the images via the Read More link. In short, it looks very nice yet again.

Story Games Summary

Both EPIC and the ICL have slowed a bit in the past week(s). EPIC did conclude Catalunya with Valverde winning for Movistar ahead of Koenig for BMC and Uran for Sky. Both games are struggling slightly with a lack of reporters but they are still grinding onwards nonetheless.

The big Story Game of the week has been CX: A New Dawn. Off-seasons in any game seem to bring the most action and CX didn't dissapoint as many new riders and teams popped up this week. We've also hade the Season 1 awards nominations go live, and the Season 2 calendar has been confirmed. There is still time join Ian Butlers game and you can do so by going to the thread.

Thread of the Week

The Man-Game DB release sparked plenty of discussion in that section. The Other Sports forum continues to be a point of interest for American Sports fans. But this week there was only ever going to be one winner of TotW. The Hilly Classics 2015 has been by far the dominant thread during Ardennes week, no competition at all to the commentary on AGR, FW and LBL.
