    Hey fellas, love the idea for the podcast! Must say though, the video game comparison was a little rough. Didn’t seem like there was much time spent with either game before the review. My thoughts–

    1. Majority of issues presented about PES can all be fixed. Names by players, the mouse-based substitution system, even the licenses are all easily changed. All things that can be found out by spending a little more time with the game. The review was mostly Morgan making hyperbolic statements and venting. Didn’t learn anything from it.

    2. FIFA review was better. More variety of positive and negatives. Like/agree with the crossing issue. Do feel there are a lot of things that are huge additions to the demo that aren’t mentioned, though. True shot and player momentum are two of the massively marketed new features from EA. Deserve a shout.

    3. Generally, I love the idea. I just feel like I’m listening to two very casual fans make some off the cuff judgements. Would prefer to feel like there was some solid time/research going in to the final product.

    Keep up the good work!

    Couldn’t disagree with the review for PES any more. PES2014 is awesome, and one of the best football games ever made for a while. Sounds like Morgan just sucks at it. Sorry.

      Hi Princefad1,

      May I ask why you think it’s one of the best football games ever made? Is really like some context as it has been a while since I’ve played PES. Perhaps you could shoot me an email and fill me in on why you think it’s so good. We’d appreciate it a lot!
