Collector’s Corner – Vita’s a b*tch

For someone out there who may not get the pun, just know that vita also means life in italian… Okay, last time I made a “Collector’s Corner” it was about games that could become collectible in the future, this time around it’s nothing like that at all.
Why’s that? Because I couldn’t really recommend anyone getting into vita collecting although, at the same time, if you’re ever going to do it, the sooner the better. I know this first hand because, silly me, I actually collect for the system. The thing is, collecting for this system isn’t what I’d call “easy”, I’d rather call it frustrating or, at the very least, annoying.
This article is actually about that. The little annoyances you’ll find if you ever try to collect for this handheld.

Rant – Metal Gear Survive? No

I didn’t mean to make rants a recurring section in the blog but Metal Gear Survive is out and I want to talk about it. I’ll be short anyway.
Simply put, if you ever have the hope that a review for this title will ever appear on the blog, know that it won’t. This isn’t even a big gaming blog which gets issued review copies for us to test, we spend our hard-earned money on the games we talk about and be sure we won’t be spending a dime on this travesty of a game.
This article isn’t a review or my opinion on the game itself (as I obviously haven’t played it) but more of the explanation and the reasons why that review will never happen.

2017’s PSX Roundup

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.

New games from Paris

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.

Remakes!

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).

My thoughts on Sony’s E3 (2017)

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.

My thoughts on Need for Speed: Payback

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.

PES 2017: Like coming home

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.

Top 10 Scariest Silent Hill Monsters

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.

Injustice 2: My Character Roster Wishlist

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.
