Maybe they are bringing back the dogheads for the next-gen versions, cant wait!

Remember this is the same nokami that said for the pes5 to have a 'massive' improvement to the ML, the result was a bigger development sheet. In other words dont get your hopes up.

Well if they bring PES6 out as it was on the XB360, it would be very bad news, but if its a fully developed game, then massive kudos, but I still cant varify a console at 425 sheets and then the game when I dont even have an HDTV to make the use of it....

MGS is Konami's biggest franchise and Kojima has been hinting a X360 release for months now. I wouldnt be surprised if its MGS4 for Microsoft's console.

So which of these consitutes a massive announcement?!

Brooktown High Senior Year
Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles
Coded Arms Contagion
Dance Dance Revolution UNIVERSE™
Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party™
Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom
Dewy’s Adventure (working title)
GoPets™
Hellboy
Honeycomb Beat
Konami Classic Series: Arcade Hits™
Lost In Blue 2™
Lunar Knights™
Kororinpa: Marble Mania
Time Ace
Wing Island
Winning Eleven Pro Evolution Soccer 2007™

The majority are psp/ds games, and the 360/ps3/wii games mentioned are hardly gonna get the majority of gamers excited, are they? Im glad that you consider it a "massive" announcement with a few games on there you want, but how are you gonna defend the critism that its not massive for the majority of gamers.

And why the need to use a throw-away fanboy comment? Maybe if you had been reading the majority of my posts regarding nokami and pes you would realise that im regularly criticising them for their "hype" (see ML pes5 example) and the "development" of the pes games over the past 3 years. It only highlights the "talking out of your arse" element in your post when trying to defend nokami because you happen to like a few games on the list.

Maybe if you werent a PES fanboy, you'd agree that it IS a massive announcement.
Maybe if you read my sig you would have seen what a stupid comment that is, instead of what could be seen as leaping to defend nokami because you like a couple of their games. And isnt that what constitutes fanboyism?


Getting back to the thread, hopefully adonis is correct and there will actually be some big news later, however, like i posted earlier i wouldnt get my hopes up.

They just announced 17 games and you dont consider that a massive announcement? If thats not massive, what is? Is 17 not enough for you? Do you need atleast 20 or 30 to call it a "massive announcement"? Or were you just expecting something about a single game like PES or Metal Gear Solid? Cuz if you were, then yes you're a fanboy. Simply because those are the only games you're interested in whereas I thought it was massive regardless of the fact that it didnt have any of the major franchises, which makes me unbiased and less of a fanboy than you.

And dont give me that "I hate Nokami" bullshit cuz the fact that you're still here posting on a Pro Evo message board proves you still like or atleast want to like PES games. Now just because you didnt like their latest PES games doesnt mean you hate them (Konami). For example, if it was your birthday and you mum bought you a gift you didnt like, would you hate your mum? Of course not. It just means you're disappointed with you're mum. 12 months later when its your birthday again, you would have forgotten about the whole thing and would be looking forward to your next gift. Why? Because regardless of what she gets you, you still love her and appreciate the fact that she gave you something. People like you treat Konami and the PES series in the same way. You can say what you want now but the moment they announce a new PES game, everyone will be kissing Konami's ass without even any info on the game. That my friend is fanboyism.
People like me (and I'm sure there are many others on this board too) have given up on the series. I cant remember the last time I posted in a PES related thread except if its an editing thread where I'll only be praising someones work. And I dont even post 1/4 as much as I used to on the forum altogether (although I still have the second highest post count on here after PLF, as you can see in this link. Just goes to show how much I used to post here. :lol: http://www.evo-web.co.uk/forums/memberlist.php?&order=desc&sort=posts&pp=30)

So yeah, you're still a fanboy. Thank you and good night.

PS.

Happy Birthday mate ;)

BTW, The "Announcement" seems to have made news outside the PES community:

Monday megaton: Konami announces they made an announcement

On Friday, Konami stated on their website that there would be a major announcement on Monday. With a strong and hearty exclamation mark to punctuate their release, they said, "From new franchises to returning favorites, you won't want to miss the earth-shaking news. You heard it here first!"

We waited for the embargoed information to show up over the weekend, as tipsters sent emails that there was some huge announcement coming Monday. What could it be? The rumored Metal Gear Solid 4 on Xbox 360? A new next-gen Silent Hill or Contra?

The big announcement was ... that they made all their big announcements on Friday! No joke, check out the release: "Last week Konami announced new games in its Castlevania and DDR series ... It's going to be an incredible 2007, so stay tuned to these pages for the latest from Konami!" So, we get a teaser that there is going to be a big announcement, then the announcement is telling us that the big announcements were on Friday? What? Everybody get aboard the hype train to the past. Serious kudos go out to Konami PR, that is some high-level mind fornication going on!

Rune, what a load of nonsense you talk. 1st its a massive list because you like a few of the games announced, and now its a massive list because it has 17 games! Does the cahnge in position have anything to do with the fact that you cant defend my critism that non of the games constitute "massive" for tha majority of gamers. Instead you now try to defend it by sighting the number of games on it. So what, in what way does the number 17 mean its massive ( maybe konami could add the games in the classics collection to make the number higher), then it would be a even better list, what a load of nonsense. I already said that massive for me, and the majority of gamers imo, means major games / franchises being mentioned, news about them.

And dont give me that "I hate Nokami" bullshit cuz the fact that you're still here posting on a Pro Evo message board proves you still like or atleast want to like PES games.
Maybe if you read my post more carefully, or even read it properly you would see that i never stated a "i hate nokami" message, i criticise them for their bullshit and lack of developement in pes. Which you yourself agree with with your sig. And amusing to see you use the fact i post here as reason for me being a fanboy, what does that make you then :lol:

Did you even read my signature?
Is the concept of irony too complicated for you?! Im not calling you a fanboy because you feel the same way about pes as i do, yet your still calling me a fanboy for it, LMAO!

The description under your name is pretty accurate, maybe if you took the time to see what im writing instead of trying your best to call me, and then prove that im a fanboy you would realise how ridiculous your being.

When did I say its a massive announcement because of me liking some of the games? I'm saying its a massive announcement because they just comfirmed 17 games at once which is bound to please the people who want those games. Just because YOU might not want them, it doesnt mean its not "massive". Take the Dance Dance Revolution series for example. Thats HUGE is Japan and has a big community. How do you think they felt when they read the news? Probably as excited as most people here would be if they had announced Winning Eleven 11.
So the news could still be considered as massive and your opinion doesnt change that.



Maybe if you read my post more carefully, or even read it properly you would see that i never stated a "i hate nokami" message, i criticise them for their bullshit and lack of developement in pes. Which you yourself agree with with your sig. And amusing to see you use the fact i post here as reason for me being a fanboy, what does that make you then :lol:
Hate was just a strong word. It still doesnt change the fact that you dont like what Konami have been doing with the series. Stop trying to argue back with a technicality cuz its exactly the kind of thing that drags on discussions like these forever.

I'm calling you a fanboy for a n00bish comment like "Oh yeah, Massive announcement, tnx nokami :lol:" cuz how you feel about the announcement doesnt reflect how everyone else feels. And the obvious reason for your sarcastic comment was cuz it didnt have anything to do with some of the games that you like so you decided to put Konami down with comments like the one above. The thing about continuing to post on a Pro Evo forum was the point out that you DO still like the PES series even though your signature might say something else. Like I said above, I rarely come here now and I only post in the Football and Other Games.
To sum it up, I dont think you realise what you're doing here. If someone else was doing the exact same thing in another discussion where he had the opposite opinion to yours, you'd probably think he's a fanboy too. Cuz thats what fanboys do, they pounce on every opportunity to criticise or make fun of their rivals or whatever they dislike. Isnt this exactly what ThomasGOAL does whenever he sees a flaw in anything that Microsoft are backing?
But atleast ThomasGOAL admits he's a fanboy.

Rune, STFU and quit acting like an arrogant prick that always has to be right over opinions. I'm not sure if you comprehend this or not, but this whole argument between you and tik started because of you; can you grasp that you're the ass in this situation? Tik made a comment, a comment he was free to make as it was his opinion and you proceeded to call him a fanboy completely out of context...............

@ Rune; Where to start? Whats the point when you use the same arguments as me to call me a fanboy and say how you arent, or are a lesser one :lol:

Do you actually read what im writing, or do you just choose to ignore it? here'a another example:
Hate was just a strong word. It still doesnt change the fact that you dont like what Konami have been doing with the series. Stop trying to argue back with a technicality cuz its exactly the kind of thing that drags on discussions like these forever.
When have i argued that back? I posted that i critise konami regularly....., hold you cant be serious can you? Your just winding me up with this nonsense surely? You go in circles, your on a wind up, arent you? There's no way someone can seriously argue like this and keep a straight face, there is no logic to your arguments, first you say that i love konami (the "i hate nokami" one that i will still buy there games no matter what), then you argue that i dont like what nokami is doing with the series, but that im arguing that i do? Eh?! Im the one critisising them. And then you argue that im a fanboy for posting here, but that you arent because you do aswell. LMAO

The funny thing is that i feel about pes the same as you, from what i can gather, and most of the time i spend in the other games and football section of this forum aswell. But just because i dont agree with someone else's opinion doesnt make me, or the other person a fanboy. i reserve the right to be sarcastic and ridicule konami, as the majority of the posters in here have done. Are you gonna call them fanboys aswell?

If someone else was doing the exact same thing in another discussion where he had the opposite opinion to yours, you'd probably think he's a fanboy too.
Come on thats just stupid, opposite opinion = fanboy. So by your logic a fanboy defending konami against a non-fanboy means the non fanboy is a fanboy and the fanboy is a non-fanboy? lol

To clarify, a fanboy for me is someone that will accept anything from a company/producer no matter how poor the release is. Im sure you agree with that.

Then again, from what ive read so far you could turn it about to argue that people that dont buy the games are fanboys, because thats the logic you are showing atm.

Anyway might aswell stop this pointless discussion.
