This summer’s glorious holiday season continues with another instalment.
Today, 30 seconds of me playing iSnooker (against myself) on the PC, and then a full match from my ultra-long-running Master League campaign on PES5, also of course on the PC.
NB: my recording software rendered PES5 just as God intended, in 4:3 aspect ratio. I have it stretched to 16:9 when playing ‘live’ and would have preferred it to record in that same format. It certainly has before.
I play PES5 for at least a couple of matches nearly every week – but still fall foul of the way the old game penalises the easy way we all squeeze buttons instead of actually defending.
And yes, I can hear that annoying crowd noise effect at the start. I only heard it when watching this recording back, though. I never play with the sound turned up on old football games. Podcasts and audiobooks are my background noise.
I’m not playing anything right now, really. I would love to have the energy to explore the PC version of PES2019 some more, or to pursue myClub some more, or to do likewise with FIFA19, but I haven’t got it (the energy).
So I am hopping from thing to thing, never alighting anywhere for very long. And enjoying myself doing so.
I believe this time next week the eSoccer PES 2020 Kickball demo will be either here, or imminent. At that point, normal service on this blog might be resumed. I usually only play the demos for a couple of sessions before abandoning them forever, but we’ll see.
