Why Playing FIFA Causes So Much Aggression

“I’ve been playing FIFA competitively since 09 but it's only as of about January this year I learned to control my aggression towards it,” says David Bytheway. Bytheway, a competitive FIFA player from Wolverhampton, reached last year’s FIFA Interactive World Cup final in Rio De Janeiro, but fell at the last hurdle to Denmark’s August Rosenmeier. The game finished 3-1 with Bytheway squandering a first…

Foot-To-Nation: Fifa 12’s Expedition Mode

The Euro 2012 addition to Fifa 12 shall be DLC rather than a disc-based continental kickabout as has previously been the case. This we already knew. What I didn't expect was for the DLC to contain a new mode which combines world conquering with foot-to-ball, namely the Expedition Mode. Travel the continent, crushing nations and stealing their best and brightest feet, along with the legs…

All Together Now: EA’s “Online Universes”

Eurogamer bring the news that Keith Ramsdale, EA's Northern European boss, has declared that the company wants all of its brands to become "online universes". That doesn't mean everything will be massively multiplayer, but rather that each player will never have an excuse to stop playing EA games. Play Battlefield, for example, on a console in the evening, a PC in the midnight hours, a…

Fifa Ho Hum: Euro 2012 Game Is DLC

I'm a lapsed football fan, so I'm writing this not knowing a) where Euro 2012 is being held, b) if any of the British teams have made it to the finals, and c) if goalies are paying much attention to the ten-step rule. I have heard of Lionel Messi, though. But even as a missing link in the Mexican wave of foot-o-ball trivia, I knew…

Crysis 2, Witcher 2, FIFA 12 In Yer Browser

This is probably old news to you, but it's new news to me and my ancient Egyptian ancestors told me during my hypnotherapy that the entire universe is just a figment of my imagination, therefore I can post it if I please and if you moan it's only because I'm imagining someone moaning. Cloud gaming tech Gaikai has been offering streaming demos of various games…

How Is Fifa 12 Like An RPG?

In an interview over at The Guardian, EA Sports' Andrew Wilson has been talking about foot-to-ball game Fifa 12, which according to sales figures all of you own several hundred copies of. There's an interesting curveball of a comment from the interviewer though when he compares Fifa to an RPG leading vice-president Wilson to respond thusly: "I think it's pretty perceptive to look at it…

Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Oct 7

Again! Again! It's our theoretically regular comparison of Steam's top ten best-selling games over the last week with the same at UK retail. Will Rage have stormed its way to the top despite the outrage and buck-passing surrounding its technically-troubled PC launch? Or will foot-to-ball have conclusively proven that an Englishman's national sport is more important to him than pretending to be a time-lost survivor…

Byte vs Brick: Week Ending Oct 1

And again! A not entirely industry-representative yet unquestionably fascinating/depressing look at what comprised the top ten PC game sales for Steam compared to UK retail over the last week. Will The Sims' dominance of retail continue unabated? (Obviously). Will there be any surprise returns to the Steam top ten? (Yeah, actually). Read on to find out the answers to both these questions and more, as…

Wait, damn, that was too soon.

FIFA 12: Foot-To-Ball Is Real

In years gone by our top scientists, professional experts, and visionary cosmologists believed that games could only be used to model and simulate men getting shot. At a stretch the technology could be applied to zombies getting shot, or even man-like robots, but the basic laws of nature suggested that ultimately it was the fate of computer game systems to help us see men being…
