June 14th might feel like it’s really far away, but hey, it’s worth the wait. Why? Because The Last of Us has been serving up great footage that makes you want to wait for this release, and the red band trailer makes it even more awesome!
Check out the trailer below. Doesn’t this game just look amazing? Yes, yes, yes! I must get this!
Even though the PSN can get on my nerves sometimes, I’m still a die hard Sony fan. The only time I ever lost my trust in Sony was when the PSN was done for weeks in 2011; I almost lost my mind! But following that embarrassing incident, Sony has kept my interest and I still play PS3 on a daily basis. So with the news of the PS4, I’m proud to be an avid supporter of PlayStation.
Unless you are totally unaware of the happenings in gaming culture, then you have no excuse not to be aware of this week’s Playstation 2013 meeting; official confirmation of the Ps4 and the future of gaming.
Yes, yes, yes! The next step in the Playstation series will be the Ps4. In the tradition of Playstation, there is no need for a new name. Might as well continue the series of Ps1, Ps2, Ps3, and now a Ps4. And as the fourth generation system in the Playstation franchise, it seems that this will be the best one to-date.
Of course the Ps3 is quite spectacular and the free online play is a huge perk, but the Ps4 has a lot of new features that will take gaming and interaction to new heights.
I could go on and on about all the new features, but that is boring! Especially when you can watch it for yourself. But here is a few of the new perks, as well as the confirmed titles that will be on Ps4.
P.S. this console is slated to be released in the Holiday season of 2013. No
So many good games coming to the PS4. The makers of Halo, Bungie, have even teamed up with the folks behind Call of Duty to make an epic adventure called Destiny. The game I’m most excited for is Watchdogs. Looks so good!
GOW: Ascension is the forthcoming game in the God of War franchise, and it brings Kratos back in action with insane combos, incredibly (might I add disgusting) enemies, and all the ingredients of action, mythology, and advanced weaponry that make Kratos one of the best characters to ever hit PS3.
In the new 30 minute gameplay, we get the chance to see the new title in action. The game starts off with this ugly chick with legs, one arm, and a minion of flies that can bring things to life. From the gist of the conversation, I’m assuming she might have dated Kratos or something, but he sure does plan on kicking her ass for what she puts him through.
Now of course, unless you want to be surprised when you first play the game, then I recommend you don’t watch this video (spoilers guaranteed.)But if you can’t wait and you’re curious what you will be getting your hands on, then grab some popcorn, push play, and enjoy Kratos kicking major ass!
Every year developers and designers are attempting to push the limits, defy the rules of tradition, and impress gamers with the ultimate gaming experience. As a gamer, I take pride in having a good story and overall gameplay, but I also love when a game delivers “life-like” graphics. It’s nice to turn on my big HDTV and get lost in a game that has stunning graphics, which is why I was quite impressed with Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain. The powerful engine behind Heavy Rain let us gamers put our hands on a game that not only offered interesting gameplay, but also held a sense of reality that was impressive beyond words.
If you’re looking to be impressed beyond words and utterly speechless by extraordinary technology, then you’ll want to watch Square Enix’s latest Realtime Tech demo. Square Enix is developer behind the Final Fantasy series and the new Tomb Raider coming out in 2013, so they’ve got a good reputation in the industry.
They’ve got a lot of work on their plate right now with Tomb Raider: Crossroads, but they still had time to show us gamers the future of gaming.
Their realtime tech demo, Agni’s Philosophy, shows us the stunning capability of their new software, Luminous Studio engine. The real-tech demo shows off the new engine and it’s impressive realistic appearance. Hands down, one of the coolest real-tech demos I’ve seen in quite some time.
Now, it hasn’t been mentioned whether or not this realtime tech demo can actually run on Microsoft or Sony’s system, but it’s still an impressive video that gives me hope for the future of graphics in the gaming industry. It’s nice to have gorgeous cutscenes, but it would be amazing if every aspect of gameplay looked as stunning as Agni’s Philosophy realtime tech demo.
P.S. you’d have to be a fool to watch this video in anything else but HD (unless your computer isn’t that awesome). Go for gold, watch it in HD. I watched it several times in 1080p.
