I’ve been waiting for Konami to release a video showing PES 14 to be a game I could actually play; something simple about simply putting a ball in a net. Today is not that day. In the third tutorial video, Konami details Pro Evo 14’s Heart system, which impacts your digital players’ emotions and stuff.

It’ll track their morale based on things like previous goals, whether it’s a home or away game, crowd chanting or the size of the cheerleaders’ knockers. Probably not that last one.

“The Heart system sees many different aspects of a football match create an emotional impact on the players, which in turn affects their abilities for the better or for the worse.”

“For example, if a player is playing well, stringing together lots of good passes or getting lots of good tackles in, the crowd will get behind him and this increased confidence will clearly be reflected in his game. At home games, the team will be able to feed off the support of the crowd, whilst the opponents may feel intimidated by this atmosphere.”

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
