PES 2013 Scores Champions League Themed Metallic Cover

Prestigious

Pre-orders of PES 2013 in North America will come with a UEFA Champions League metallic cover, publisher Konami has revealed. We suppose it’s a bit strange for Europe’s premier club competition to be featured on the front of a US release, but we suspect that anyone buying PES in North America will be familiar with the competition.

Hooray?

Who cares about the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A when you’ve got 20 officially licensed Brazilian teams?

Cultural excursion

Pro Evolution Soccer is locked in a fierce battle with FIFA. Despite dominating the PS2 era, Konami’s once-world beating soccer sim has struggled against the new-found enthusiasm of EA’s franchise.

Awful racket

Look, we like Asian music. Kara’s Step was one of our favourite jams of 2011, and not just because we particularly enjoyed the video. But this new Zone of the Enders HD Collection trailer is a bit too saccharine for our tastes. We've embedded the footage below, so feel free to traumatise your eardrums if you dare. Oh, and before you...

Metal Gear Solid 4 Finally Gets Trophy Support

Absolutely unbelievable

For as long as Trophies have existed, fans have pleaded for an updated version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. The slick stealth title launched months before the rewards system was patched into PS3, and subsequently never supported the digital trinkets. We’d actually given up hope on the game ever getting...

Our fondest memory of the mode was desperately trying to figure out how to...
