Pro Evolution Soccer 2013′s 2012 Demo #2

By Alec Meer on September 24th, 2012.

don't ask me to explain

When I was still capable of leaving the house without needing to have a nice sit down on the first bench I saw, I couldn’t make it to any sort of social gathering without bearing unwilling witness to some manner of tedious debate about how and why Pro Evolution Soccer was much better than FIFA. There were gesticulations, there were phrases like ‘ball control’ and there were near-orgasmic facial expressions. It was Quake III vs Unreal Tournament, but for bores. As far as I can tell – by which I mean by maintaining a safe distance from anyone who might ever mention it, but somehow wandering into stray comments nonetheless – FIFA now has the foot-to-ball fan’s favour once again, with Konami’s former king now on something of a back foot. I could well be wrong that, though. Listen, I’m just trying to fill space before inserting a link to the demo. Have I made it far enough yet?

Goal’d Pieces: PES 2013 Demo Allows Us To Play Ball

By Jim Rossignol on July 25th, 2012.

ROCKET GOALIE.
When I read PES, I always think Pez, but they’re really not the same. One is a simulation of wholesome, manly sport, while the other is a slightly bizarre synthesis of licenced intellectual property, plastic, and synthetic confectionery. One of these is always on my desk. The other is not. For your own purposes, why not illustrate this vital difference for yourself by trying out the demo of PES 2013, which is next year’s football game released now, for some reason. You can download it here, if you like. For additional data on this fresh football sample, I’ve posted an informative trailer, just below. The demo reportedly contains the Brazilian teams of Santos FC, SC Internacional, Fluminense and Flamengo, and the national squads for England, Germany, Italy and Portugal.
