It's official, I have a PS4 - in case you didn't know already. Thanks to FNB, I can play as much Resogun as my eyes can handle. And I'm certainly not alone - Sony is reporting enormous sales figures.
You guys know I am easily afraid in games. I love playing horror games, but I don't always have the stomach (or bladder) for it. I think I'm better than Darryn, though, who still hasn't made it past the menu screen for ZombiU. Daylight is coming at the end of this month, and it is sure to make you cry for your mommy.
Transistor, the latest and greatest game from Bastion developer Supergiant Games, has a release date. It's coming to PS4 and PC, and it looks like it will be especially cool on the new console.
The Witcher games are visually stunning. In fact, in my household they're the markers for when it's time for a gaming PC upgrade. I was upset that Witcher 3 was delayed, but at least it gives me another year to save up for top of the range components. But CD Projekt RED is also using tech to optimize the load.
Let me cut right to the chase, King Oddball really has no reason to be on PS4. It’s priced at R86 or R101 , depending if you buy it with cross play for Vita.
I was pretty happy with Killzone: Shadow Fall, as that was my debut PlayStation 4 game. It had a decent story, and some superb multiplayer with a netcode stable enough to actually allow me to get some kills in for once. I pretty much stuck to the scout class in that game. But the Insurgent DLC is looking pretty enticing now.
Every month, that PlayStation Plus subscription affords gamers a handful of fantastic games at no cost beyond the subscription. It’s given us great games like Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Uncharted: Golden Abyss and more, for an annual subscription that’s less than the cost of a brand new game. These could be the next games coming to the service.
You know the expression that the shoes make the man? Well, accessories certainly can be important. inFamous Second Son even let people get custom vests in game, but it's actually the beanie that made Darryn the happiest. But Delsin didn't always have that hat - concept art shows something very different.
Last week, I showed you the leaked images purported to be the new Assassin's Creed game. Now, Ubisoft is confirming that the new game will be called Assassin's Creed: Unity, and we are invited to eat cake.
Funny. Just the other day I expressed a wee bit of dissatisfaction at Sony for releasing firmware updates to its PlayStation 4 that do pretty much nothing. The 1.62 update for the system weighs in at 336 and “enhances stability.” I moaned that the Xbox One was the target of major updates already, but we Ps4 owners are still waiting for new features. Somebody seems to have listened.
I don’t think we can say much more about inFamous: Second Son right now. In fact, I’m all Delsin’ed out, as I wait for the review copy to arrive. So sit back, strap on a beanie and in-vest yourself in the pre-order, because a crapload of pictures speak a million words.
I love when NPD numbers come out. Mostly because they follow common sense and lead to some inane analysis like "the release of new consoles means that more people are buying hardware" and other such obvious statements. At least we can see which console is "winning" and you may be surprised by the top-selling games of last month.
Fans of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus lost their minds back in 2009 when The Last Guardian from Fumito Ueda’s Team Ico within Sony’s Japan Studio. What was shown back then was pretty mind-blowing. Since then, the game’s – or lack of it – has become a bit of an industry joke. 5 years on, and we’re no closer to seeing the game. Sony want you to believe that it’s still coming.
You may all be aware that Microsoft has an Indie self-publishing platform on the horizon, called ID@Box. That platform has a number of developers concerned, because Microsoft's terms and conditions regarding publishing games using that platform have a parity clause; a request that ID@Xbox developers launch the Xbox One version of their games at the same time as other platforms. Sony has responded with their own
parody parity clause.
