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


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.

Diving! Dribbling! Passing! Goaling! Legging! Balling? No, no balling. That would be wrong.
