Sony put the focus on the games this year, which was a refreshing take from previous outings. Have a look at some of the highlights and let us know what you thought!
Last Guardian is Re-Announced
Well, one half of you can breathe a sigh of relief now that The Last Guardian seems to be back on track. The other half of you will know if you can breathe again come tomorrow’s PC Gamer conference (although Nerdy, Inc. must medically advice you not to hold your breath for Half Life 3).
We’re promised a 2016 release, which we’ll believe when we see.
Horizon: Zero Dawn by Geurilla Games
From the company that brought you “Killzone”, comes something that initially sounded like the ending to Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. What was revealed is a
Street Fighter V
Street Fighter V was released, and it…looks like a Street Fighter game. Which is a good thing, I think. Check it out:
No Man’s Sky:
I’m still skeptical if No Man’s Sky can maintain a sense of wonder and exploration beyond a handful of hours, but I have to give the developers credit for taking on a project with the scope and magnitude that it does. Check out the newly released gameplay tidbit and let us know what you think:
Media Molecule Has a New Game
Dreams is what you would get get if Salvador Dali was still around to make video games. If that’s a good thing or a bad thing is up to you. Either way, Dreams follows Media Molecule’s trend of letting you do most of the work to play your game:
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Well, this just proves if you nag enough, some executive will listen. I’d be lying if I didn’t say this teaser does have me excited, but I’m curious about how they are going to handle combat going forward. Will they rely on newer conventions or resort to turn based systems?
Either way, soon we’ll find out if always getting what you want pays off:
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Gets Some Gameplay
Sony ended with an underwhelming clip of Uncharted 4 that showed us some of what the series is already known for. I confess I found it a rather disappointing end, relying on something was sure to get attention as opposed to something that would make waves, but the team at Naughty Dog always does a bang-up job and I’m looking forward to the next installment in Nathan Drake’s adventures.
That’s a wrap for Sony! What did you think? What was most surprising or disappointing? We want to know!
