I haven’t posted anything in a while because in all honesty nothing interesting has been going on in my life(social and gaming). I have playing Smite recently, might post an impression on that in a week or two. But besides April is ending pretty soon which means E3 is 1 month closer(when is it, mid June?) so I figured I’d make a short list of games I’d like to see during E3. Now obviously I want to see new IPs but since I can’t predict them this list is mostly stuff we know of or exist in some shape or form, also if anyone is reading this and remembers the games I wanted to see at E3 2013 knows the two obvious games that’ll be on this list so I’ll just get those out-of-the-way now.
God dammit Bethesda, I know you’re making the freaking game, let us see it already! Also a few other notes, NO XBOX EXCLUSIVE DLC! & no cross gen, only current gen systems please. I’m hoping the gameplay improves on Fallout New Vegas instead of going on Fallout 3(which was the one developed by Bethesda). Few other things I want to see on Fallout 4 is a better third person camera, I like to see my character, after all, what’s the point of having a customized character if I can’t even see him/her, hell, I can’t even see their feet. Which is another thing I hope Fallout 4 has, letting me see my character’s body when I look down. There are some mods that already do this on PC but it would be nice to have that in there day one. Also no dumbing down, please. Skyrim was really shallow because it was dumb downed to appeal to casuals. It’s so bad in fact that personally I find the vanilla gameplay absolutely unplayable, it’s extremely boring.
Super Smash Bros 4
Obvious is obvious. This is the game that will make me purchase a Wii U. I want this game to be playable at E3, which will most likely happened for at least the 3DS version since that version comes out in the Summer(fingers crossed that it’s no later than mid July). Also for the love of god give me my Mewtwo! And like I’ve mention in my previous post I still wan’t to see Ridley just to have someone who’s the complete opposite of Little Mac(Huge and is only good in the air). Now with the two obvious ones out the way lets start with games I haven’t mentioned before. Continue reading
So many of you might not know but Ubisoft had this little competition (http://uplay.ubi.com/en-US/events/next-gen/gifts) where they were giving away free copies of Assassin’s Creed 4 for both XB1 and PS4, season pass for AC4, or Just Dance 4 for PS4 and XB1. I dropped the Assassin’s Creed series after the third one, I was a huge supporter of both the present day story and the historical story. but after the ending of the 3rd which I won’t spoil for anyone out of respect I had to drop the series. The game that was the supposed ending of the trilogy was just so, so bad and felt like(and most likely was) written at the very last second to continue milking the series. Hell, Revelations the game that was leading up to AC3 had more closure. Now I know that AC4 is apparently the best one in the series but I refuse to buy it, sometimes you just got to say no. But then I hear about this Next-Gen prize thing Ubi was doing.
Now last Saturday was the last day to win a game/or season pass, it was also my first time hearing of this competition from lurking in Neogaf(I was perma banned so I can’t post anymore 😦 ) and the last batch of codes were being given out at 8pm, which was about 20 minutes away so I figured, eh why not give it a shot, I’m kind of feeling that next gen drought anyway. Then boom, I won a copy of AC4 for the PS4! I’ve been waiting for my code for almost a week, I started to doubt I won too but I can see my username on the winner list so that cleared up. Unfortunately since I didn’t get the code yet I highly doubt I’ll be playing it anytime soon even once it arrives since school starts Monday. But, if it gets here tomorrow or Monday I’ll try my best to just blow through it before Monday.
First off let me start by saying I’ve never played the other 3 Sly Cooper games, its not that they looked boring, I just never got around to buying it. Though after playing the demo for the 4th installment in the franchise I think its time to fix that. As I’m sure you know by know Sly Cooper is a platformer with a light touch of stealth. The demo starts off with a introduction of our cast, and what they’ve been up to since Sly 3. Sly’s segment was all about stealth, if you get detected you must restart from the last checkpoint, this part of the demo was my favorite(though it was all great). Bently, the brains of the team was about destroying obstacles with his bombs that he carries in his wheel chair. He also has a neat mini game when he begins to hack a computer, it plays pretty much like a top down shooter, nothing special about it besides it being pretty fun. Lastly, there was Murray who is the bronze of the group. He is all about beating the poop out of the enemies. Unlike Sly and Bently, Murray cannot pick pocket, instead he can lift enemies and objects. The demo ends with Carmelita, Sly’s love interest discovering Sly is up to his old tricks(She is also a playable character but unfortunately not in the demo), and chases off Sly. The gang then begins their getaway to the past using their van Back to the Future style.
After the demo Sly 4 and its HD collection is certainly on my radar, plus the game is only $40 and supports cross buy. You read that right, this game is also coming to the Vita. Sly Cooper 4 will release on Feburarey 5, 2013 in the US and March 29, 2013 in Europe.
