Not even forty-eight hours on from completing Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 as my fiftieth Platinum I complete…
…Sly Cooper and The Thievius Raccoonus on the PlayStation Vita. Such a good game, held back from greatness by pointless and awfully-designed mini-games and unskippable cutscenes. May go through Sly 2 and 3 if I can put up with them (God they’re average and awful).
FUCKING GET IN!
If we do win the league then give this man a medal too.
No matter who you support it’s hard to look past these three really, isn’t it? Suarez for Player Of the Year and Sterling for Young Player Of the Year (a nomination Sturridge shouldn’t be up for, he’s 24 for God’s sake!).
Today I got my 50th Platinum Trophy since I became a PlayStation gamer nearly thirty months ago. Was also the 11th Platinum this calender year. What game did I do this feat with…?
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. And good God it’s shit. Easily the worst football video game I have ever played in my life. It’s not just the shocking AI, the cheating nature of the game, the terrible in-game graphics (early N64 is not even kidding), dreary commentary repeating the same six lines, tedious music or awful arcade-like experience of the beautiful game. What my main beef with it is that PES used to be the highlight of football on a computer, the Barcelona of titles. In just a few short years it’s become an absolute joke with no punchline (or Manchester United). I don’t like buying FIFA to play football on my PlayStation’s but this Konami is why I do. To quote Alan Hansen, “shocking.”
