This year’s Playstation Experience came and went (mostly) and stuff happened on it. I can say that pretty much like with every other Sony-held “conference” this year, it wasn’t bad but it certainly wasn’t great either. There is already a bunch of announced big games coming on PS4 that won’t be released at least until 2018 so expecting any big announcement from this was already discarded. That being said, we did get some announcements and a whole lot of information on games we already knew were coming. Here’s my summary / opinion on the most interesting stuff we saw there.
This week is the Paris Games Week. Sony has attended to it and even held a conference in which they showed a bunch of games. We got to see a bunch of new footage of games they’ve shown countless times before like some flashy action for God of War or a truly white knuckling event in Detroit… but they’ve also showed games we haven’t seen before and this is what this article will be about.
I won’t be talking about all of them in detail as there were a ton of indie/VR titles among those but just about the seven that left a bigger (positive) impact for me.
Fortunately for us, we’re still not quite where the movie business is nowadays where any big major release has to be based off something else. Be a comic, book or video game adaptation, sequels, prequels and spinoffs or, of course, remakes. I’m not saying that not being an original concept automatically labels a movie as trash but in the long run this constant recycling of ideas will hurt the medium. At the very least, have a couple big original films every so often so in 20 years there will be something to remake.
In any case, this isn’t a movie blog and this article in particular is about developing remakes so demonizing remakes would be pretty hypocritical on my part. Also, even if the video game scene still pumps out their Horizon: Zero Dawns and their Overwatches, most AAA video games nowadays are also based off something else (mostly in the form of sequels).
If you know any Radiohead you’ll probably know where this is going.
Last year I wrote separate articles with my impressions on some of the games Sony showed but I figured that concentrating them into one this time around wouldn’t be so bad. Specially considering that there wasn’t that much new to explain. In any case, there were games and I have my own opinions on them so let’s begin.
That’s a nice way to summarize it, isn’t it? You read this post’s title and then look at the picture, that’s pretty much it.
It wouldn’t be fair though. There’s the work of hundreds of people behind the making of this game so a simple joke like that wouldn’t do it justice. Also, there’s also the reasons WHY I disliked so much what EA showed about this new game and I’d like to share it with the world.
This isn’t a review and it was never meant to be. The target audience for this game won’t be really interested in the thoughts someone like me could have regarding this title. Even if I do enjoy football as a sport and therefore I also have fun while playing sport video games about it, I’m certainly not as devoted as the majority of people who buys these games yearly.
And that’s another thing I should mention I guess. Even if I enjoy football games, I don’t buy one every year. I usually wait 2 to 3 seasons to pass by before I get my hands on the next one as neither the roster of players nor the features of the games change that much from one year to the next. I don’t judge the people who do buy them though. If those are your favourite games out there… I understand you. It’s just that there’s too many games out there for me to devote myself into a single series and I just find perfectly comfortable playing FIFA 15 (which actually came in 2014) in 2016.
So Halloween’s here, and I’ve decided to do a top list and what better way to celebrate it than with one of the scariest monsters in a gaming franchise ever! Silent Hill is a classic gaming series featuring one of the most grotesque and disturbing creatures and monsters that I’ve seen. Being one of the best horror games series out there I also dedicate this list to those amazing games that literally made me have nightmares when I was little. I was so scared to play but at the same time I beat them so then I was so proud! Anyway, here is my top scariest monsters in Silent Hill.
I’m a big DC fanboy and I really enjoyed the first Injustice game. NetherRealm did a very good job with it so when I knew about Injustice 2 coming out I literally scream from excitement. So far a few characters have been announced and shown in footage and this upcoming sequel looks impressive. This is going to be my speculation/prediction roster list as I know we all fans are super eager to see the full roster reveal. Which of our favorite DC characters makes it or not. This list consist of some of my favorite DC heroes and villains regardless of in-game storyline.
So, gamescom happened and several games were revealed at the event and, among them, probably the biggest surprise was Metal Gear Survive. And I deliberately chose the word biggest over something like greatest because, even if the game managed to be talked about pretty much everywhere, it certainly wasn’t received positively.
Which is, again, a surprising feat. I’m of the opinion that, no matter how much backlash one games gets, there will be someone out there who actually likes it. However, those who like this new Metal Gear game must be hiding in a cave or something because I haven’t heard yet a positive opinion on that gamescom trailer. I think that’s already enough reason for me to give my two cents on this reveal so here it is.
I’ve always been a WWE fan and have played their games ever since Smackdown vs Raw in 2005. I’ve always found the games so entertaining, I can play them for hours, playing as my favorite Superstars and Divas, creating belts, arenas, custom wrestlers, just being able to feel like a WWE superstar myself and kick some butt is what WWE games are all about. I’m very thrilled and excited about this upcoming game so I want to share what i think about it. Here we go.
