Just when I thought I would change the day I post my articles to space them out a bit more from Dan’s IWP articles, I clash with his article earlier today again! I think i will change to either Fridays or Saturdays to give IWP more prime space before I kick in.
At the moment I am still going crazy on the Master League and with essentially players with poor skills relatively, so the game is very challenging and not as rewarding as it will be when I sign better players and train up talented youngsters. Once I get to a stage where I am playing with decent players, I will take time out to spend some time playing the latest FIFA game to once again devote some time to comparing these two giants of footballing games.
I know I courted controversy the last time I compared PES and FIFA, and it is a difficult and emotional subject to broach, but I intend to try to be as tactful as well as honest as I can. I am aware of the fact that this is a PES site, and my allegiances truly do lie with PES, but I believe that in my capacity on this site, I should be challenging Konami to produce bigger and better. Anyway, the actual comparison won’t be for at least another six to eight weeks, since it’s only fair to play FIFA for a fair while to be able to guage it’s good and bad points, as I am currently doing so with PES.
In the meantime, I am pleased to announce that we have been given three copies of PES2010 on the PS2 by Konami, which I will be giving away in a competition. I was thinking about running another “Beat the Blogger” type competition, but have decided to run this one a little differently.
If you fancy a copy of it on the PS2, all you have to do is to tell me in no more than 200 words why PES is the game for you.
It’s that simple. The best three entries will bag a copy of the PS2 game. Email me at my usual address below. The competition end date is the 14th of December 2009. The sooner I get three winners the sooner the games go out, so get sending your entries.
This talk of competitions leads me nicely to my next topic of regular online competitions. We are going to be teaming up with www.pesrankings.com with lots of exciting prizes. We are looking to establish a permanent presence on pesrankings.com, so this should be an exciting time for everyone involved with our site. We will be looking to create a trial competition on the PS3 very soon to see how we fair. Hopefully we can get pretty efficient with running them, and have regular competitions for everyone to join in on.
That’s all I have for you guys this week, so I look forward to getting some entries in soon for the PS2 copies we have available.
Thanks for reading
