FIFA 14 Announced: Features Emotional Goal Scoring

EA Sports announces FIFA 14, saying the new version of the sports simulation will enable players "to experience the emotion of scoring great goals" when it is released for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this autumn. This emotion will be amped up through a new "pure shot" mode: "Finishing has been transformed with Pure Shot so players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net. Well-hit balls feel more exhilarating and rewarding. New shot types include pure strikes, as well as off-balance and rushed shots. Plus, Real Ball Physics now determines the trajectories of balls, enabling players to kick the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or turbulent shots, just like real players." Here's a new trailer showing ball control and physics, here's another trailer showing the new pure shot stuff, and here are some screenshots.

Except that you're pulling shit out of your ass. I don't know how Fifa's controls are at this point, but NHL's controls are fluid and intuitive.

I don't know about Fifa, I'll get the next world cup one instead. But I hated the NHL 13 controls on the PS3. Too unresponsive and just didn't feel fun. Each to their own.

If you were talking about NHL 07 I'd agree. Maybe it's just from playing the series year in and year out since the initial reboot on the current gen of systems that I'm so used to it at this point that it just works for me. Granted being a hardcore hockey fan doesn't hurt either.

PS: Pure Shot mode not available when our servers are down.


I've never liked all these wacky new modes on my sports games; it's basically why I stopped playing the baseball games. Rather than just play a fun game of baseball, now I have to position my fielding glove, and then with the analog controller mimick the motion of throwing to first base, and mimick the motion of swinging the bat, and mimick the pitcher's windup and and and and.

Ugh. I just want to play a game of baseball. I don't want to accurately simulate the life of a major league player. :\

Fifa 13 on the consoles not named Wii was actually fairly revolutionary, at least according to the videos and gifs out there.

It definitely had a new, innovative physics engine that led to some of the most ridiculous, hysterical glitches I've seen in ages.

See some here.

The glitches, in many videos, come from a hyperactive physics engine, but to me show how detailed that physics engine is. Even the hit detection when those two dudes kiss... I mean, uh...

Of course, it's still probably dull so I haven't played it, but youtubing "fifa 13 glitch" leads to good times.

NHL this past cycle was the same. New physics and skating engine. The skating revamp actually did wonders for the game. The physics engine still needs some work as there's plenty of comical youtubes out there showing how wonky it can be.

EA is putting effort into their sports titles the last few years, as much as the haters won't ever admit it.

Can't help but read this sexually.

Evey year they say the same shit and it's the same shitty game. Long past due to end these monopolistic practices and allow for some real competition.

A lot of this sounds like the BS they've done with Madden, NBA Live, and the NHL series over the years, making it a pain in the ass to do something in "clutch moments"

"We hired a new guy who actually had kicked a ball. He brought his Physics for Dummies book."
"Yeah, and we decided not to do this again."
"Sorry."
"Yeah, I'm sorry too."
