  1. Sony’s press conference featured a strong showing of gameplay and trailers. With expected titles like Horizon: Zero Dawn and The Last Guardian to unexpected surprises like Spider-Man and the return of Resident Evil. Sony followed with the announcement of PlayStation VR dropping this October with 50 titles being available by the end of the year. There were no news of PS4.5 or any technological leap for the PlayStation, but Sony gave fans exactly what they wanted. Other shows may have had the glitz and the glamour, but clearly the best was saved for last. Starting things off in dramatic fashion, a live orchestra and choir performed as the curtain rose to reveal the first game of the night: a new God of War. Kratos is back with his extreme brutality, but gone is his extreme bloodlust and rage (for now) He is shown teaching a young boy, possibly his son, how to survive in the frozen wastelands they call home. With impressive skill and a versatile axe at his disposal God of War is looking fantastic and quite Norse. Days Gone kept things rolling as the audience assumed it might be The Last of Us 2, but was treated with an open-world zombie apocalypse. The demo ended the night, but both the trailer and live gameplay was enough to let you know that the people in this world are completely in over their heads. Dodging death every five minutes and continuous running looks to be the core of this zombie thriller. Not much was shown about The Last Guardian, but we finally got the one thing we've been waiting for: a release date. October 25, 2016 is the day we'll finally get our hands on Team Ico's long in-development title. Horizon: Zero Dawn showed up with a chunk of new content to be shown off. The demo featured mounting, capturing and taming of the mechanical creatures. It also sprinkled some hints of the overall plot. Detroit: Become Human, Quantic Dream's next adventure game, looks intriguing as you take control of an android negotiator. There are many paths you can take and not all of them are pleasant. Solve conflicts diplomatically or resort to force if you have to in an adventure where the only choice that matters is the one you can live with. Sony announced that players would finally be able to have a powerful VR machine in their home for $399 this October. It was followed by a laundry list of titles in development. Waypoint, Arkham VR, Star Wars: Battlefront X Wing Mission, and Final Fantasy VR experience were the highlights. It you've haven't been introduced to VR this is a good starting point with over 50 games being released from launch to the end of the year. Call of Duty came to impress this year with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Remastered. Infinite warfare not only showed us impressive visuals, but new exciting gameplay that has been miss from the Call of Duty universe for quite some time as well. It definitely got the trigger fingers happy again. The biggest surprise of the night was when they introduced Kojima and he presented his next great project, Death Standing. Silent Hill may have been canceled, but he kept Norman Reedus to star in his next idea. Norman is seen fully naked in a strange, sci-fi world that only Kojima could think of. Aside from the brain melting teaser, nothing else is known about the new title Death Standing. People have been buzzing about a possible Resident Evil reboot, but instead we were gifted with Resident Evil 7. It is filled with creepy atmospheres, stark visuals, and tense music. The trailer isn’t for the faint of heart, so there is no telling what players will have to face when this title releases. Crash Bandicoot is back! Remastered in all his glory, players will get to relive his first three adventures, as well as see him beside their favorite Skylanders. One of the best looking fan service games is Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4. Working with Marvel, this title brings classic Spider-Man style to the next-gen era. If the game plays as great as it looks we can finally stop talking about how great Spider-Man 2 was on the PS2. Sony delivered one fantastic surprise after the other as their conference was filled with trailers and demos of their impressive upcoming games. There was no need for talk or speech. It was a fun ride with many games to look forward to in the coming year. View full article

  3. A Summary of Sony's TGS 2015 Announcements

    We know that not everyone who loves games has enough time to seek out and watch nearly two hours of video game announcements made from the other side of the planet, so we went and did it for you! The Sony event included a wide variety of announcements ranging from developers taking the stage to briefly talk about their upcoming games to new accessories and system price drops. Keep very much in mind that many of these announcements are oriented around the Japanese market and may or may not be coming to North America. The release dates are all for Japan unless otherwise stated. However, the chances for some of these titles making their way the North American stores is pretty high, so with that in mind, let's get on with the run down. Sony kicked things off by announcing a new array of PS Vitas that offer a variety of different colors. These systems will be available in Japan September 17. New colors will also be available for the PlayStation 4 in the form of nine colored plates for the detachable portion of the PS4 case. These new colors also come with a price drop for the console to 34,980 yen, which is roughly $290. Perhaps we will also be seeing a holiday price drop in the near future? Later in the conference, Sony announced that a limited run of gold, silver, steel black, and crystal controllers would become available in retailers shortly. One can only hope that these color options can find their way across the ocean. Following that, the first details on Bloodborne's expansion dlc dropped, including a new trailer. Titled The Old Hunters, the DLC pits the protagonist of the core game against the legendary hunters of the past who have become insane and twisted by the powers of the blood. The DLC will hit the digital market worldwide on November 24, followed by a physical release packaged with Bloodborne on releasing December 3 in North America. The highly praised Gravity Rush (known as Gravity Daze in Japan), previously only available on PS Vita, will be receiving an HD remake for PS4. This remake will be making its way to North America on February 9 in North America under the title Gravity Rush Remastered. A sequel was also announced that will release in Japan sometime next year. No word on whether that will be coming to the NA region. It could depend on how well the remaster sells. Ubisoft took the stage next to talk about their upcoming titles. The first title they talked about, For Honor, throws knights (the Legions), vikings (Warborn), and samurai (Chosen) into all out war against each other. At the conference, Ubisoft revealed a gameplay montage for the Chosen faction’s Oni warrior, who can perform brutal katana attacks, call in archer volleys, and use a variety of clever tactical weapons to win the day. For Honor is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No release date was been announced. Ubisoft also unveiled the trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate's first DLC pack which centers around Jack the Ripper. shown for the first time. It appears to involve tracking down the deranged killer who may or may not hold some affiliation to the Assassins. Following Ubisoft, Sega announced a remake of the game that kickstarted the Yakuza franchise. The remake of the PS2 classic drastically overhauls the graphics, improves overall playablity, and adds new missions that expand the story. The Yakuza remaster will be available on January 21. Sega followed this up with an almost casual mention that Yakuza 6 will release in fall 2016 exclusively for PS4. No word on whether either of those will come to North America any time soon, though given that Yakuza has developed a bit of a cult following, chances are fairly good that we will eventually see both. Additionally, a few seconds of The King of Fighters XIV was shown. The fighting genre staple releases this coming January for Japanese audiences. Bandai Namco took the stage to talk about two of its most lucrative Japanese franchises: One Piece and Gundam VS. New titles are on their way, pretty standard. However, the larger bombshells dropped afterward. Phantasy Star Online 2 is coming to PS4. Given that Phantasy Star Online just released for North American audiences, chances are pretty good that we might see the same treatment in the near future. More amazing is a PS4 exclusive named Nioh debuted gameplay footage. Nioh was originally announced over a decade ago and was long thought to have been cancelled. The title appears to be a cool mix of Dark Souls and The Witcher 3 in which players hunt a wide variety of demons in a mystical, feudal Japan. Nioh releases in Japan sometime next year. RPG juggernaut Square Enix took over to flex its JRPG muscles. World of Final Fantasy trailer looks absolutely adorable and the game itself seems to be Final Fantasy meets Pokemon with some chibi character models thrown in for good measure. The title will release in Japan sometime during 2016 for PS4 and Vita. Square Enix and tri-Ace project Star Ocean V: Integrity and Faithlessness will hit Japan on February 25, 2016. No word on a US release yet, but if one is happening it should be a month or two after that date. The trailer has some really inviting and promising scenes that get my hopes up. Square Enix announced a new entry in the long dormant Saga series titled Saga: Scarlet Grace. Not many details are available on the game, but it is cool to see Square Enix delve into its lesser used IPs. Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue is a large HD package of games that includes Dream Drop Distance HD, Kingdom Hearts X Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-. I have no idea what these names mean any more, but, hey, more Kingdom Hearts (even HD re-releases) isn't ever bad news. For the 20th anniversary of the Resident Evil series (known as Biohazard in Japan), Capcom is releasing a competitive third-person shooter titled Biohazard Umbrella Corps to bring the franchise into a new decade. It appears to be players fighting one another with guns and brutal weaponry while in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. The downloadable title will be available worldwide for PS4 and PC next year. Spike Chunsoft, the devs behind Daganronpa, are teaming up with RPG legends tri-Ace for a new title called Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky for PS4 and Vita that will launch on December 17. Square Enix took the stage again to show off Dragon Quest: Builders on January 28, 2016 looks like an adorable combination of Minecraft's blocky world and the traditional RPG nature of Dragon Quest. The game appears to involve restoring a monster-riddled land to safety by helping to construct towns. Project Morpheus is now somewhat more mundanely named PlayStation VR. That about covers the majority of the big and small announcements of the press event. You can watch the full thing for yourself here.
  4. Yesterday, Microsoft, free of discussing hardware and the non-gaming aspects of its system, focused squarely on the games. If you weren't able to watch the event yourself, don't have the time, or just plain don't feel like watching it, we've got you covered. In this overview we briefly describe and link various parts of the press conference for your convenience. Price and Release Window for Xbox One The two big questions on everybody's mind was how much was this thing going to cost and when to give Microsoft their money. Both questions were answered. Kinect Sports Rivals Before the conference even began in earnest, Microsoft announced Kinect Sports Rivals on the Spike TV pre-news conference coverage. The title will be developed by Rare for the Xbox One and will release sometime this holiday season. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Microsoft opened the press conference not with a word, but with a brand new look at Metal Gear Solid V which showed off new features, locations, weather conditions, and characters. Game Plan for the Xbox 360 After the Metal Gear bombshell, Microsoft went on to explain the future of the Xbox 360, promising hundreds of games and focusing on three of the big ones: former PC exclusive World of Tanks, Max, the Curse of Brotherhood, and Dark Souls II. Eleven Exclusive Titles After getting most of the nitty gritty out of the way, the creators of the Xbox One went on to detail a number of the exclusives that will be available for the system in the near future, some at launch. No More MS Points Microsoft has decided to ditch the Microsoft Points system in favor of using real currency, probably because they realized having an alternate currency was just serving to confuse people out of buying their products online. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt Though previously announced, CD Projekt confirmed that the game would be an open world, utilize optional voice commands, and that SmartGlass could be used to manage inventory and character progression. Battlefield 4 A live demo was shown of the game, beginning on a sinking aircraft carrier and moving into a boat assault on a larger vessel. Microsoft confirmed that the first map DLC will be available on Xbox One before it is released anywhere else. Live Streaming and Gameplay Recording Details Microsoft clarified some aspects of how it will allow gamers to live stream their gameplay via Twitch and how gamers will be able to save, edit and record their non-streamed gameplay. Below Below appears to be a promising indie title about exploring the underground areas of a mysterious island and it comes from the same people that created the game and music of Sword and Sworcery. Keep your eye on this one. Minecraft Minecraft made its appearance to confirm that it would indeed be on the Xbox One, that the level size would increase, and that multiplayer capabilities would be greatly expanded upon. Black Tusk's Secret Project To be honest, we weren't shown more than a brief glimpse of the game before the conference moved on. All we know about it is that it is a next-gen title. View full article
