Insomniac gives us our first look at its upcoming Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive and well …. is saying something is so “Insomniac” a term? Unlike Insomniac’s last game, Fuse, this game seem to have more of their style and charm. I honestly don’t know what to call this game. It is like an odd blend of open-world, zombie-shooter with elements of Ratchet and Clank. Strangely enough the game reminds me of Epic’s on seemingly vansihed game Fortnite. The mission statement for them seems to be, “make this game as crazy as possible”, which fits Insomniac’s style. So I’ll be keeping up with this one just to see how crazy they can get.
So after the trailer leaked, Activision saw fit to officially announce Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. This is the first Call of Duty game made completely by Slegdehammer Game and its almost unrecognizable. The game looks like a mix between Call of Duty and all the tech from Elysium. I have not play the Call of Duty series in years because I kind of grew tired of it, but this is too interesting to overlook.
Despite my feeling on the Annualization of games, Activision seems to try to change up the Call of Duty formula enough every year so it seems completely new. Also, with the release of TitanFall, they are facing some stiff competition so the change feels necessary. Also Kevin Spacey, whoo hooo!
Every time I see Freedom Wars I get a little bit more excited. While I have been deep into all the indie and downloadable games that you can find on the PS Vita, I haven’t been this excited for the big games since Gravity Rush. The perception is that Vita does not have any games, but anyone who owns the system knows that is far from the truth and are more than satisfied. I think Sony’s problem is that they do not talk about the Vita as much as they should, but that’s a conversation for another day. Only problem is, Freedom Wars is Japan only. Crossing my fingers for a western release.
I have a soft spot in my heart for the Digimon series. I dare say I even like it better than the more popular Pokemon series. The Digimon World games were always one the best parts of the franchise. Digimon World Re Digitize Decode is an expanded 3DS version of the PSP game that came out a year ago. It plays similar to the first Digimon World game that came out on the PS One more than a decade ago. So far the game is Japan only and it really makes sad, as I would love to play a new Digimon World game.
While most of content in this Japanese Pokemon X and Y trailer isn’t fairly new, there are some things in here we may have not seen yet. Like the customizing your character, horde battles, a closer look at sky battles and the PSS (Player Search System). They also show off the Xerneas-Yveltal Blue 3DS, one of two Japan only special edition 3DS’ coming out. The other being the Premium Gold edition.
Pokemon X and Y arrives October 12th worldwide.
Scorpions, Sword fights, Guns, Half-Naked 300 God King rip-off guy and Eye Laser, Bleeding Giant. Nuff said.
Killer is Dead comes out for Xbox 360 and PS3 this summer.
I am just going to say that at one point in this gameplay video Deadpool pulls a bouncy house out of thin air for no other reason than jumping on it.
The gameplay for the new Deadpool game looks like you basic hack and slash fun, but it is Deadpool 4th wall breaking comedy that really makes the game stand out. Between Deadpool’s inner monologue with multiple personalities and mocking classic video game tropes that we have come to accept, this game might just be worth it just to hear Deadpool speak. Also, “Laws of physics be damned”.
Deadpool arrives tomorrow, June 25, for PS3 and Xbox.
Update: Launch Trailer
