Foot-to-ball: Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 Demo

By Kieron Gillen on September 15th, 2010.

The men gathered in the enormous stadium to stare at the tiny pig.

Fans of demos of football games are in for a treat today. The rapture is happening, and it seems that the whole 10 commandments things was just some stuff Moses made up for a bet and the real thing that gets you eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven is playing foot-to-ball demos. Until you ascend into the sky, you can pass the time playing the new demo for Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, which allows to play AI or local multiplayer, with four teams, arranged into two pairs. Barcelona vs Bayern Munich and Copa Libertadores vs Chivas Guadalajara. At least, I think that’s what they mean. They say “Chivas Guadalajara and Internacional” and that confuses me. Why can’t all games be about orcs? Non-foot-to-ball players may think download and playing would be a good way to get into Heaven, but – no – it’s too late for us now. Still, as we wait to die, we can sit and watch some footage…

Boot Disk: Pro Evolution Soccer 2011

By Jim Rossignol on July 14th, 2010.


With the international foot-to-ball championship settled with the final battle of the Hollands versus the Spains, it came to be that foot-to-ball is now finally complete, and we can move on to other sport. Konami have chosen to commemorate the end of this particular sport with a new videogame, which is called Pro Evolution Soccer 2011. In it you can participate in all the things that made that lost art so popular with all the people who have now moved on to badmington and skiing. You can see the commemorative mechanics below, in a splendid trailer. So long, foot-to-ball, you made us proud.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 will be lobbed onto the unruly pitch of games in Q4 2010.

Role Puzzling Game: Puzzle Chronicles Demo

By John Walker on February 19th, 2010.

I love romantic scenes.

Remember when puzzle games were nice, sedate affairs? A gentle afternoon in the company of some disappearing gems, or carefully placed tiles? How it’s all changed since Puzzle Quest, eh? Now puzzle games are about COMBAT! As is the case with Konami’s imaginatively named Puzzle Chronicles. It’s by Infinite Interactive, they who brought us Puzzle Quest and Galactrix, which is immediately obvious when you start playing the demo: lots of effort has gone into it. It’s what makes their games stand out from the vast numbers of lazy copycats. However, I’m not completely convinced this one is going to engage quite as much.

Metal Gear Solid 5 On PC. Woo?

By Alec Meer on June 5th, 2009.

HELLO MY NAME IS DAVE ROBO-CHIN

There isn’t much love for most of the MGS series in Castle Shotgun, but of course it has its fans and they’re totally entitled to that, regardless of the fact that we’ll eventually round them up and drown them all in the river. The news that the upcoming new’un, MGS: Rising – which apparently stars some half-robot ladyboy or something – is departing its traditional Sony-only shores for the PC (360 too) is a little surprising, though. I don’t believe we’ve had a Metal Gear since a port of number 2 yonks ago, so it’s odd for it to suddenly come back now.

Foot-to-Ball: The Demonstration Continues

By Jim Rossignol on October 2nd, 2008.


The apparently ongoing attempts to educate mystified RPS editors in the ways of foot-to-ball continue today with the release of the “Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 Demonstration”. It seems that this particular sporting demonstration is one of the most sophisticated we’re likely to see this year, with improved artificial intelligence routines, splendid animation, and “tweaked” physics. All this to make the new and exciting outdoor activity of foot-to-ball seem even more appealling when played on a computer screen instead of a well-manicured sport-lawn. Foot-to-ball fans are able to play as the Manchester Uniteds, the Liverpools, the Real Madrids, and the Barcelonas, or the Italian or French national foot-to-ball representatives. The necessary files can be procured as a 1gb bundle from here. Fascinating stuff, you’ll agree.
