why the hall is FIFA 09 so bloody hard to play sometimes??

Why is it that EVERY single cross i send in, the defender always heads it clear?

Why is it that it's so easy for the AI to take the ball off me? Is there a button i can press to protect the ball?

And lastly and most importantly... How the hell can you do a hard, low shot? I mean everytime i shoot from outside the box, the shot always goes high. always. Even when i'm in the box with nothing but the keeper in my way, i can't do a low shot. Yet the computer does them all the time. what the hell?

take a deep breath.

R1 or RB are your friends, use them when you are open to shoot, so hold them as you are doing a shot.

also, power managment, very important, you don't need a strong shot, as you are preparing to shoot, use the left analog stick to direct your shot, a well placed shot will always be more effective than a strong shot, so ya, R1 or RB, and also a weaker shot, plus move the analog stick to where you want the shot, down, up, left, right, let know how it goes!

Im not a fan of either and I supose its a matter of taste, but I havent met one person here that likes Fifa over PES. All of em say the same thing. PES has ten times better playability and most of them still play PES "winning eleven" over any other soccer game.

Hows NBA 2K10 coming?

I find it funny now that 2K10 is the same length as 2010.

You see, as a die hard Winning Eleven fan, I couldn't agree with you more. But Konami let us all down. For three years now, they have been using a 5 year old engine which is shit. The gameplay is horrible, the graphics are XBOX (first one) standard, and they are still struggling to license all the big clubs.

And their online play is simply shit.

I was a huge WE fan, until the "next gen" era began. FIFA 08's gameplay became very similar to PES (or WE, by then they had started using PES for all their regions, not just Europe and USA anymore). And their online play was second to none. We (PES fans) all assumed that Konami is gonna release a new engine for the next year, but it didn't happen.

As it stands, you simply can't compare them anymore.

FIFA has won the "wars" when they moved from an arcade style of game play to a simulation style of game play. I played PES and it reminded me of FIFA 04. Extremely arcadey, lacking substance and incredibly simple.

As for fancy's question, Rasam is right, the RB, LB buttons are your friend. Also, if you simply throw the ball into the middle, it'll never work as the defence is extremely good at getting to the ball. Look for guys making runs. Also, what I do is, if I have the ball at the far sides, you can usually pass it to a midfielder who's cutting towards the 16 yrd. box and you're left open for a good shot with your midfielder or you should have an option to pass to a trailing CM.

I hate the iPhone and I hate people who use their iPhone's for other crap instead of, you know, using it as a phone.

Seriously, why would someone use the phone as a book? an mri application? That's ridiculous.

i felt the same way until i was given an ipod touch as a gift (so, granted, i didn't have to pay for it). it's a pretty cool device - thousands of tunes, movies, games, stuff i can do whenever i end up waiting for anything and i don't happen to have a book. i ride the subway a fair bit too, to and from work, between meetings, etc. so it works for me. i use it as a scheduler as well. problem is, with that and my phone i'm carrying around 2 devices, which is cumbersome. i kind of see it as a cool device that happens to have a phone, and i use way more than i thought i would despite it being hipster and annoying. might as well package the phone in there too.

speaking of the mri thing, a buddy of mine just flew back home from london after his dad had died of a heart attack in toronto. he got right on the plane, flew home, landed, made it to the hospital and discovered that his dad had survived - his heart was re-started after several minutes and he fully recovered. needless to say, it was a pretty incredible situation for the family. the doc gave xray and mri shots to my buddy and he was showing them to friends and family on his iphone trying to explain what had happened. you could clearly see the before and after of the arterial blockage. it was pretty cool. now that's more about the story than the iphone, but this kind of thing can be useful in certain situations or professions. the principle is kind of 'make it what you need it to be', which is kinda cool.

but generally, i always need to do something or i sit there and fidget. the itouch is a good way to keep entertained and informed when i'm on the move or stuck waiting, and i just wish i didn't have to carry around my phone as well. maybe that makes me a hipster too. i doubt it, but i suppose it's possible.
