Wow, just wow.
So many beautiful games that are in development. To be honest, it sucks to watch them showcase new games and then read later that they’re in development and doesn’t have a release date yet. That means it’s going to take them 2-3 more years to complete it which sucks! I mean don’t get me wrong, I know that it takes time to design a game but all that hype and excitement has to wait for a few more years *sob*
Let’s talk about some titles that got me excited!
God of War – Release: In Development
Developers: Santa Monica Studios
Let’s talk about God of War. I have not touched any of the previous titles yet I got a bit curious about the game and I am thinking about trying it out when it’s out. The intro was a bit harsh with the whole forcing my kid to haunt bit. He seems like a tough father but I feel like inside, he has a kind heart. I saw a bit of that when he was trying to comfort his son when he killed the deer. His son looked so sad. He stopped himself from comforting him and I think it was because he wanted his son to be strong (which is weird but then again it’s a video game, how should I know). I am excited to see more of this title when it’s close to its launch.
Days Gone – Release: In Development
Developers: Bend Studio
Seemed cool. It has that The Last of Us kind of feeling to it. It’s a bit mysterious so I would like to know more about the character and about his past. Who is the chick? His lover I assume. The zombies in this game are intense. The way they’re swarming reminds me of the Left 4 Dead franchise. Pretty neat!
Horizon: Zero Dawn – Release: February 28, 2017
Developers: Guerrilla Games
I must say it’s nice to see a female lead character in a game. I’m so used to be playing games there I play as a male. I have nothing against it but it’s cool to see a badass chick beating butts! Whoop! And when she was taming that animal (I assume it was a bull or something close to it?) I felt like it was like the movie Avatar where they connect their hair to the pet tail/hair to tame it (please tell me I wasn’t the only one thinking that).
Resident Evil 7 – Release: January 24, 2017 VR exclusive
…okay Capcom you blew me away. Sony was showing some VR stuff and I thought it was something else. It was a bit bloody and I was like eww no I am not playing this in VR. Then it started getting a bit mysterious and interesting. An empty house led to hallucinations (or was it real?) to weird clues from a video tape. It was very confusing at first. A lot of jump cuts from people to animals to creepy locations. Then the roman 7 popped up then a fade in with the rest of the words spelling Resident Evil 7. I was like WHAT. Why I was surprised was because Resident Evil nowadays doesn’t seem as scary as it used to be back in the days. Today it feels more like action rather than horror. This gave me a complete different image of the Resident Evil franchise and I Love IT! This is what I am talking about Capcom. The Demo is available to play right now on PSN!
PS VR – Release: October, 13, 2016 (USA) – $399 USD
I am not sure when this is going to get released in Europe. I assume the same month at least or even same day (let’s hope) the price is a bit too much in my opinion. To pay for a PS4 then also pay $399 USD dollars doesn’t sound good to me. I have to try it first to give a complete honest review though. If it really feels like the HTC Vive then perhaps it’s worth it. For now I hope that they don’t make the price sky high in Europe.
Detroit Become Human – Release: In Development
Developers: Quantic Dream
First of all. Wow. The intro really made me fall into the story so bad. I wanted the little girl to survive no matter what. When she fell I was like no! But when they re-winded the story and started telling about the choices and clues in the game can affect the story line I was like YES! I love games like that. It pressures the player to make a choice and based on their choice another action might happen which makes it so tense and interesting. I was thinking of Heavy Rain when I was watching this preview and then I realized that it’s the same developers lol (fail) Thumbs up for Quantic Dream!
Death Stranding – Release: In Development
Developers: Kojima Production
Okay let’s just all take a moment and talk about Hideo Kojima entrance walk. It was freaking awesome, he rocked that stage. I bet everyone was expecting something Silent Hill:ish due to the cancel of PT. I was watching with my mouth open wide. I was not expecting him to make a new game with a character design of Norman Reedus like in PT. Everyone was very excited there. I am very, very VERY excited about this title. I want to know more. This is Hideo Kojima’s first title since leaving Konami and I am sure he will deliver a nice product and many more after this one.
The Last Guardian – Release: October, 25, 2016
Developers: SIE Japan Studio & genDESIGN
The preview of this made me all emotional. That’s when I know a game is worth playing, Whenever I feel emotionally attached to the characters or the story, that’s when I know that I am going to have a great game experience playing that particular title. Japanese talking too! So good. I will definitely give this a go.
Crash Bandicoot – Release: 2017 TBA
Developers: Naughty Dog
Okay so, I am not gonna lie, my inner childhood is calling on me but seriously, why a remake? Why can’t they just make a new game? It’s been so many years Naughty Dog! Regardless, I am excited to play the three titles that they’re remaking so I am not gonna nag all the way.
Crash, Crash 2 and Crash Warped will be available for the PS4 in 2017 (TBA)
I hope you all enjoyed the show! I wish I could’ve been there myself like the pervious years. I was there when they first announced Final Fantasy 15 and when they mentioned Kingdom Hearts III (I almost cried, seriously) Speaking of Kingdom Hearts, I was expecting something this year but nada from Square Enix which was odd in my opinion.
Let me know what game you’re looking forward to play! 🙂
(Ps. to see more photos –> click on the title)
Among these only The Last Guardian interest me to be honest.
I’m a big fan of Team Ico’s work and Shadow of the Colossus is one of my favorite game of all time. I don’t know if you got to play it but you definetly should if you haven’t already. Especially as a Zelda fan.
And Breath of the Wild seems to borrow so much from Shadow of the Colossus. It would be cool if you stream it one day actually.
I guaranty 100% you will love it.
Unfortunately for me I don’t own a PS4 so I probably won’t play The Last Guardian…
And it’s coming out a day before my birthday… 🙁 Oh well I will play Titanfall. . .
I used to be a big Resident Evil fan but since RE5 (that I really enjoyed) I haven’t been excited for any Resident Evil game. The thing is that Resident Evil and Horror games in general don’t scare me anymore. Resident Evil has had this problem since Code Veronica.
I’m not scared anymore and I strongly believe that it’s because of the direction of the game. They are not horror/survival games anymore since RE4 but action games with unlimited armo.
So while they are good games they are poor survival games imo.
