Well what can I say other than the response to Operation PES Feel Good Factor in my last article was phenomenal! I was truly overwhelmed with the range of heart-warming stories charting how the game created truly mesmerising memories in PES for many of you.
I could spend months picking out elements from the many stories submitted in comments, but it wouldn’t be fair to the people I was unable to pick out. Many of the stories had me laughing, crying and downright sombre on occasion. PES has always managed to pick at so many emotions in so many of us. Anyway, I decided to use a scientifically approved model to find just one story to comment on, and that will be for…. James Goblin!
For all those disappointed to have not been picked, I can only apologise.
Anyway, James Goblin – I hear what you’re saying, and I have to say back in the day I had my favourites from the default bunch of players too. Castolo was my perennial up and coming striker who would embarrass the stars that I would buy, by putting in performances that meant I just couldn’t leave him out. At one stage in one lifetime, the great Batistuta couldn’t oust Castolo from the first team, and eventually sulked until I sold him. Such was the strict regime of not pampering to overpaid primadonnas that I employed.
Right, with nostalgia clearly not weighing heavily on people’s minds, I thought I’d change tack and ask whether we felt that Konami’s post-sale service (primarily focussing on DLC delivery) was up to scratch.
Now I for one have always applauded how Konami have never ventured into paid DLC territory. It’s refreshing to see, and means they focus on trying to give us a complete package over the course of the game’s general 12 month cycle.
However, as Paul has highlighted, there does seem to be some discrepancies with DLC delivery of squad updates post transfer windows in particular. I’ve always used PC patches which incorporate squad updates, so haven’t really applied them per se. Since I haven’t ventured online this year, the updates are meaningless to me.
But that’s just me – I’m sure the majority of you do depend on timely squad updates. Are they handled in an efficient enough manner? Are the updates delivered in a timely fashion? Please have your say on Konami’s after-sales service and let’s see if we can get some salient points to deliver to Konami.
Thanks for reading.
