It opened with a lecture still trying to capitalize on how PS responds to the players. Though then they talked about how games clicked into the zeitgeist … the zeitgeist? Really?
The Last Guardian
About time, this thing was only announced about eight years ago. No, I’m not exaggerating. This was supposed to be a PS3 game.
Brought to you by the people who brought you Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, this is about a boy and his … very shaggy griffin? I don’t know, what would you call that one?
It’s coming out in 2016. We’ll see.
Horizon: Zero Dawn
Bow and arrow versus imperial walkers. Interesting. With destructible scenery, including rocks. Whatever this is, I like it. It requires strategy and tactics, not just mindlessly plugging away. It’s an interesting new IP. It looks like a nice variation on the usual “Evil robots rule us all.”
A Square Enix project that debuts for Playstation. Hmm… methinks that someone wants to make up for the latest Tomb Raider being Xbox exclusive. But the game isn’t exclusive, a lot of the content is. Hmm. The trailer has awesome graphics, has an interesting feel to it. But then, it’s a Hitman game, it’s a series that goes a very, very long way on pure style.
Street Fighter V
Really? Can’t we stop now? I think I gave up when it become Super Street Fighter II Alpha Turbo or … something like that.
No Man’s Sky
No, I don’t know what the premise is really, but they’re showing off. And having fun.
Creating artwork with the console. Huh. Cute.
Though I gotta say, this one is a little strange.
This makes the opening Zeitgeist comment make a little more sense. They really are shooting for artsy.
…. You know what? I got nothing.
Destiny: The Taken King.
Oh look, the failed MMO has been doubled down on.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate
Another one of these? Please. Just stop now. I wonder, do you think that they’ve actually managed to fix the broken combat system? The religion bashing, alien conspiracies that make the History channel look reasonable, mixed with an incoherent, stupid plot, and now we’re going to Sherlock Holmes times? Really?
Given the way this series has gone, I’d expect it to say that Sherlock Holmes is real. They wouldn’t be the only one.
Final Fantasy 7. The Remake.
Oooh, shiny, awesome graphics for the trailer. I think I can see pores in the skin on close-ups.
But … really?
Call of Duty: Black Ops III
Call of Duty is no longer with Xbox.
Game over, man, game over.
Other than that … these plots are stupid and piss me off. When it comes to Battlefield versus Call of Duty, I call a plague on both their houses.
Star Wars: Battlefront
Not an exclusive, but dang, this looks awesome.
And, most importantly, it has the music.
This was Playstation’s trump card, the exclusive franchise that only runs on their console, and let’s face it, it looks nice.
What originally started out as an easily dismissed Tomb Raider knock off (though I swear that the first one felt a lot like a beta), Nathan Drake was a different sort of person, who should have been played by Nathan Fillion.
There is, however, a slight problem, when the premiere of the trailer had to be restarted only a handful of seconds in. That’s not exactly encouraging. And it was obviously live-feed of a game in session, not a recording.
All in all, looks like fun.
