This Thursday, Feb 5th, CheapyD is scheduled to appear on Cold Pizza, a TV show which airs live from 7AM to 9AM EST on ESPN2. There is a rebroadcast immediately afterwards from 9AM-11AM EST.

I'm not really sure what is going to happen specifically, other than I am supposed to be previewing Winning Eleven 7 for the PS2.

Be on the look out for a very tall guy with a shaved head that looks something like this:

So, in anticipation of being on the show, I picked up a used copy of Winning Eleven 6 yesterday, because I know the WE series is supposed to be challenging, and I didn't want to embarass myself on national TV.
I played for a few hours last night and I have yet to score a goal. This is not like EA's Fifa games where you can expect to be doing spin-o-ramas and scoring bicycle kick goals after playing for 10 minutes.

...looks like I have a lot more homework to do.

Anyone have any tips?

p.s. Does anyone have the means to record this onto their computer? It would be nice if I could post the clip on CAG.

Luckily there is, but the game is still very challenging.

its really not that hard of a game, i agree you dont score 6-7 times a game but i can usually squeak 1 or 2 past the keeper, on normal difficulty, what were you playing on?

Try to play a staggered 2 forwards at the top. And make the last pass to that guy when in the box. Don't just rip shots. It is useless. The ball will rebound if you pass for a close shot, and then your other forwards will knock it in.

The other thing - watch fatigue and hot streaks. It makes a big difference. If a guy is on a cold streak, he will miss point blank. :-)

The game is hard to score, but very rewarding between the boxes.

Take Care,
Matthew

i will say that i am really good at the game so if you want tips i could help you...just email me at bmac1632@hotmail.com

the best way to get used to the game style is to start on easy...the comp will give you more time on the ball so you can get used the game...lol dont ever compare fifa to this game...fifa is pure arcade while WE is a complete strategic game...Fifa is like checkers while WE is like chess...anyway if you want help then email me...it is hard to explain this game on a forum because my tips are very lengthy and wordy...so if you want help just email otherwise good luck because WE is a very hard game even for soccer players...in the US we dont know the finer points of the game that well which you need to know to be successful

Well, I'll ReplayTV it, which I can then transfer to my computer, and then maybe I can do something with it from there. I'll try and see what I can do, but I've only had the ReplayTV since christmas and have yet to try this transfer thing out. So don't count on me, but I'll see what I can do... Also, I have a dvd burner so if I can't figure how to edit the video, maybe I'll just burn ya the dvd and let you or someone else try the editing. But on the same token, I don't have my dvd burner installed yet and so don't count on me for that either. But dammit, I'll try..... :)

also when you preview it i think it would be a good idea to discuss the differences between FIFA and WE...i know many are uninformed about WE

Cool.

Just make sure to act intelligent - don't let the tv people make you look like a stupid gamer geak or something. Make sure you are confident and whatever you do don't look into the cameras directly - either look at who you are talking with or to the side or something. Also don't be long winded in your answers/explanations cause they will have to cut you off to either ask you another question or commercial, and that never makes you look good. Try to answer their questions direcetly and don't go off on a tangent unless it is to promote your site.

Anyway. good luck Cheapy.

maybe Cheapy will become the new preview guy. Once I saw some people on there talking about the new games and they really just let the people talk about what they want and then interject at the end.

If you played past fifa games, you may want to change the layout of the controls. In WE6 to shoot you have to press square and you do a cross over by using the circle button, when in fifa is reversed. Shoot in fifa is circle and cross over is square. Go to the tutorial menu, I didn't know how to play but when I got to the tutorial everything was good and now I'm really good at this game. And finally, practice, practice, practice. You may want to start at 1 star first so that you get the hang of it and know how to score from different possitions, then you can go up 2 starts or more, but first you gotta know how to score.

Im curious as why thier picking you to review WE.

On another note, i have this video of some MSN broadband reporter reviewing NFL street... he keeps using slang terms and comes off as the whitest guy on the planet... i reccomend a view for a chuckle.

when does we 7 come out?

also with WE you can not be as direct as you were with FIFA...a good rule of thumb in WE is when you have the ball and going to attack the defense never use the sprint button (r1) use the modified sprint (r2)...it is faster than normal dribbling but slower than sprint dribbling...it allows you to move at a good speed but at the same time have the ability to keep the ball close just in case you need to manuver around a defender...also when you are playing defense always use r1 to get ahead of the attacker and into good defense position to make the tackle
