As planned, the demo of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa was released on Xbox Live and PSN today. Spain and Italy are the two playable teams and the demo will let you play a complete 4 minute match. Also expect about as much confetti as in a Captain Tsubasa episode and a festive song conveying all the joy and brotherhood that go with such an international event. Very colorful, with even better graphics than Fifa 10, this new game in the franchise looks promising enough to be worth a look if you want to get fully involved in the world cup phenomenon. The 60 fps video was captured in professional mode.
On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (5 minutes ago)
Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (19 minutes ago)
@Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (21 minutes ago)
But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (41 minutes ago)
PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (44 minutes ago)
That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (48 minutes ago)
I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (50 minutes ago)
