  6. After their stellar showing at E3 last year, there was no reason to believe today that Sony could have met or exceeded the excitement that The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Shenmue 3 generated. What else could make as strong of an impact? No one knew, but in the end, Sony pulled off a show to remember. In fact, with the exception of those three surprises last year, Sony's E3 2016 press conference could be considered their best-executed press conference ever. The beginning was a little strange and ominous with an orchestra that brought to life a rather dark and sinister theme (and what was up with the lady making the coughing noises?), but it was an effective way of starting the show with a bit of foreshadowing. Then, the theater went dark. Cut to the first bit of game footage shown, which begins with a young boy playing with hand-carved figures and using his imagination as children do. However, the boy's clothing seems to suggest a more primitive civilization, perhaps something ancient. His playing is cut short by the harsh call of a man from a nearby wooden shack, presumably his father. The man calls out from the dark within the shack, directing the boy to take his mother's knife and hunt... for he is hungry. While saying this, the man steps into the light, revealing a familiar, hardened, pale warrior who bears a red stripe across his face and his chest, and a fully grown beard as well. and echo throughout the auditorium as it becomes apparent that the game everyone is watching is none other than the newest entry of God of War. Despite not having any attachment to the series (I've never played a GoW title in my life), I have to admit that this was one of the best and most effective introductions, not only to a new game, but to any video game conference overall. The slow buildup and reveal of Kratos was extremely well executed, and for the first time, the audience actually saw a quality in the character that was virtually non-existent in the last few GoW games: humanity. It is never explicitly said in the gameplay shown that Kratos is the father of the boy, although it is heavily implied; even if he isn't, it wouldn't matter. Having a child, or even just being the boy's guardian reveals a different side to him and makes him a more interesting character than he ever was when he was only driven by anger, revenge, and bloodlust in the first four games. Sony Santa Monica appears to be taking longstanding criticism of the character to heart this time around -- namely, that he doesn't have any depth beyond revenge. Beyond that, it's apparent that Santa Monica Studio is taking God of War in a brand new direction overall, and one that has a much heavier narrative, not just with the overall plot, but likely with the characters and their personal growth as well. Where will it lead? We'll have to wait to find out, but it's a fascinating turn of events given how different it is compared to the previous games. After the trailer rolled, and a brief introduction from Shawn Layden, we were treated to a slew of other game trailers, one after another. The Last Guardian finally got a release date. A brand new IP called Days Gone (and yet once more set in a post-apocalyptic era) was announced. Horizon: Zero Dawn was once again given another gameplay demo that showed off how impressive and complex the in-game world is. The trailer for Detroit: Become Human showed more of the game's premise and a strong reliance on the player choosing how the narrative unfolds. Resident Evil VII (Resident EVII) was revealed and looked nothing like the increasingly action-focused previous installments in the series, but showed a return to the horror elements that the series was founded on. A series of VR game segments were shown, but didn't weigh the show down. Crash Bandicoot was announced to be getting a PS4 remaster. Hideo Kojima was brought out on stage and revealed the trailer for his upcoming game with Sony, Death Stranding, and also revealed that Norman Reedus would be starring in it as well. And last but not least, Insomniac was revealed to be making a new Spider-Man game that looked fantastic. You might not necessarily find all of these games to be interesting, but there's no mistaking that they're big games that people in general are interested in and are excited for, and all of their reveals were paced extremely well throughout the conference. Did you notice anything else different about this year's conference versus previous years? Sony cut out the self-promotion, marketing talk, kept the talking from executives to a minimum, and they virtually kept all third-party developers off the stage as well. Instead, they let the games do most of the talking, and it was the smartest thing they've done in years. Sony's conference wasn't just good because they happened to show a few new cool games. It was good because they respected the audience's time by making the best of the conference and showing them what everyone wanted to see: release dates from past announced games, brand new IP, exciting new games from existing IP, and even a bit of extra production values to top it off (an accompanying orchestra, Kojima's appearance etc.). Basically, they gave us reasons to continue being excited for the PlayStation 4's future, and if the reception from fans, critics, and journalists alike on social media and various gaming websites is any indication, Sony has succeeded far and above what everyone thought was possible.
  7. As many know, Shovel Knight released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita last Tuesday, and it's coming to the Xbox One before too long. Despite now appearing on all three current generation consoles, many insist the game would feel right at home on the NES. While it would be theoretically impossible to scale down Shovel Knight perfectly to the 8-bit era, Yacht Club Games has done something kind of neat for fans who liked to pay attention to instruction manuals or the credits of games like and . Suffice to say, if you check here, you can learn the names of almost every major and minor enemy in Shovel Knight. There are spoilers toward the end though, so be careful if you haven't beaten the game at least once! ...And speaking of Shovel Knight's PlayStation release, have you found Kratos yet? There are places you can go for a detailed guide, but if I may drop just the slightest hint: talk to some of the NPCs you run into while taking shortcuts, and thoroughly investigate the Hall of Champions. Good enough? Stay tuned for more Shovel Knight news, like word on Plague of Shadows, as it comes. Does something like knowing the names of enemies make a platformer that much more special for you? Be sure to share your favorite enemy with us below!
  8. In case you hadn't heard of this before, the upcoming God of War: Ascension included one Trophy titled "Bros Before Hos" which would pop up upon demolishing a specific female character. Since the game comes out tomorrow, the biggest backlash against the Trophy was from reviewers of the game who received early copies. As many voiced their displeasure over the name of the Trophy, Sony Santa Monica has decided to change it rather than spurring further controversy. Here is their official statement which was given to Joystiq: "We have created and will soon push out a patch for God of War: Ascension that alters the title of one of the game Trophies. The text was offensive to some members of our community and impacted their enjoyment of the game. We are endlessly committed to ensuring that our community can fully enjoy the experiences the team has created. As such, we've addressed the feedback and amended the Trophy in question." Therefore, when the game is available on store shelves, players who take it home shall see an update upon starting the game. It is fairly typical procedure to have day one patches, just not so regularly to avert controversy. In case you were wondering, the new Trophy title is "Bros Before Foes". Considering they had clever wordplay up their sleeve, it may have been better to simply choose this version from the get go. Do you think the Trophy name change was necessary or is it meaningless considering the tone of the series?

    God of War: Ascension Bundle Comes with Red PS3

    Sony is hoping for massive success when God of War: Ascension launches. The SCEA-developed title has so far gotten priority attention with beta access on PSN as well as a social game earlier on. Now there is another big push by Sony to get people invested in the game (as well as the PS3 world). A new console bundle with the game is set to launch alongside Ascension to further promote the series. This set is called the God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle and it fairly nice as far as PS3 bundles are concerned. The box comes with a special "Garnet Red" PS3 Super Slim which has a 500 GB hard drive. Of course, Ascension is included, but so is a copy of God of War Saga. That game itself is a bundle of all five previous games in the series, including those PS3 ports of the PSP games. There will also be a 30-day PS Plus trial membership thrown in. All of that put together makes this bundle $350 in stores. It might not be the most economic way to get a new PS3, but people who have never tried God of War and are certain they will adore the entire series may find this a neat package. The bundle will be out on March 12 alongside Ascension.
  11. Sony has been working hard to make sure that their PS Plus subscription actually offers PlayStation fans something of value. They're not content to just offer access to Instant Game Collection titles though. For example, betas are sometimes provided to their paying customers and today the PS Blog has shared what the next beta access will be. The game is of course God of War: Ascension. This is the fourth main game in the series, although there have been spin offs in between. It also happens to be the first game in the series to include multiplayer. As you might expect, that is where the beta comes in handy. Everyone subscribed to PS Plus will gain access to the multiplayer beta on January 8th. However, some gamers have just gotten in today. This is due to the Rise of the Warrior Experience which had been going on. Players who were a part of the Sparta team have access to the beta right now. The losing team, Trojans, will be able to get in on December 16th. Are you interested in God of War: Ascension?
  12. New franchises routinely fall victim to the desire to create longevity by introducing multiplayer modes, but well executed innovation can be an excellent addition to fan favorites. God of War: Ascension will be the first game in the God of War franchise to introduce a multiplayer option. Warriors in this mode must pledge their allegiance to an iconic Greek god, each of which will grant the player special moves and bonuses. The Playstation Blog confirmed that Plus members can expect access to the multiplayer beta this winter; however, non-subscribers will also have an opportunity to earn their spot in the fight for favor amongst the gods. The official God of War website will house an interactive social experiment for those hungering for the first taste of Ascension. The Rise of the Warrior is a story designed with the hallmarks of a graphic novel which chronicles your warrior's journey. Fans will choose to join the ranks of the Spartans or Trojans and complete social tasks in an effort to gain early beta access and 30-day trial of Playstation Plus. Participants can also earn other rewards like early unlocks and exclusive gear for the God of War: Ascension multiple player mode. Will you be taking part in The Rise of the Warrior?
  13. Vita owners can rejoice as Sony unveiled some very welcome news today for their newest handheld endeavor. The God of War Collectionand the Ico & Shadow of Collosus HD Collectionare now playable on the Vita via Remote Play. Remote Play, a vastly underused feature for the original PSP, allows gamers to connect wirelessly to their home console with Sony's portable gaming device. Playstation 3 owners will need to download a free, minor patch on their home consoles before accessing these classic games on the Vita, The Remote Play feature will also allow users to access videos, music and photos. However, some of the best news from the entire announcement is that these game patches will allow players to map the L2 and R2 buttons on the Playstation 3 controllers to the rear touch panel of the Vita. It may initially seem negligible, but that option really makes the number of Remote Play titles limitless.
  14. Playstation All Stars Battle Royale's release date is coming up fast. As we approach closer and closer to the release date, more details about the game's story and characters are being revealed. While I'm eagerly anticipating the game's release, I've started to wonder something- just what is this game going to be rated? We've gotten characters from games ranging from E for Everyone all the way up to M for Mature. If it was just the character's themselves then this wouldn't be a problem, but as we all know Playstation All-Stars will have a story mode to worry about. How will some of the more mature characters handle the transition to a more family friendly setting? Out of the twelve characters announced so far, four of them are from M rated games. Sweet Tooth, Kratos, the Big Daddy and Colonel Radec. I'm sure we'll see a few more M-rated characters before the game's release this October, but we'll focus on these ones for now. Colonel Radec probably won't be that big of a deal going into All-Stars seeing as he's just a war nut who will stop at nothing to win. Sweet Tooth Things get more complicated when you get to Sweet Tooth. One of the main characters in the Twisted Metal series, Sweet Tooth was an ice cream truck driver who snapped and murdered most of his family while dressed as a clown. It then became his mission to find his surviving children and kill them too. While dropping him into a T-rated game should work, they'll have to seriously nerf his story if they expect to keep their rating at a T or lower. Kratos Then we have Kratos, killer of Gods, layer of women. Each sequel he starred in was pretty much just an exercise to see how brutally he can kill someone given the newest leaps in technology available to the team that created him. As we've seen from the gameplay trailers, Kratos has been tamed down considerably. At no point will he be pulling off Nathan Drake's head. In fact his story will probably just be about him finding whoever forced him into these fights so he can rip them in half off screen. The Big Daddy Finally we have the Big Daddy. A character who's soul mission in life is to stop people from murdering the children they protect. As far as I know, they don't really do much else other than that. Will the Big Daddy be fighting off Heihachi and Parappa from trying to kill a child? Doubtful, but I'm interested to see how they'll possibly involve that in the story. There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale will not get an M-rating. There's no way it could become Sony's answer to Smash Brothers if it did! But just how will these characters work in a T rated setting? And what if Superbot decides to goes for an E-rating? Only time will tell, but until then I'll be looking forward to even more character reveals. ---------------------------- How do you think Superbot will handle these rather violent characters in a game geared more towards a family friendly crowd? Do you think they'll be pulling punches when it comes to the stories of some of the more insane characters? Why not tell us what you think in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.

    Sony Announces PlayStation Collections

    Last week there were rumors about a new God of War compilation being listed in a retailer's database. On the official PlayStation Blog it was just announced that, yes, there is a new GoW collection coming out. However, what no one knew is that it wasn't the only one they were planning. Sony fans already knew that a Ratchet & Clank Collection was official, but now we are finally able to see God of War Saga Collection as well as inFAMOUS Collection confirmed for release. These sets will all be out on August 28th in store and on the PS Store. They will all cost $30 which, as you will see, is actually quite a deal for some of these packs. The Ratchet & Clank Collection features Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal in 1080p. So, it's basically the latest HD collection out there. The inFAMOUS Collection includes inFAMOUS, inFAMOUS 2, and inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood alongside some additional missions and costumes. The biggest pack of them all though is the God of War Saga Collection. This one deserves a list to show off all the included content: God of War God of War II God of War III God of War: Origins Collection (which includes God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta) Exclusive Bonus Content Voucher For 1 Trial Month of PlayStation Plus Remastered for HD, DUALSHOCK Control, Full PlayStation Network Trophy Support and 3D (3D supported only in God of War III and God of War: Origins Collection) Do you want to pick up any of these new collections?

    Yet Another God of War Collection Coming?

    if the rumors Siliconera has posted are real, then it looks like gamers who have still yet to play a God of War game will be really lucky. A retailer has reported that there's a new GoW collection in the works for PS3. Apparently the set is also pegged for an August release. If it does come out then, it'll be months ahead of 2013's God of War: Ascension, but that's probably part of the strategy. There's currently no word as to what games could be in the God of War Saga Collection. If it is legitimate though then that'll be the third collection the series has received. First there was the God of War Collection in 2009 which brought together God of War and God of War II and brought the games up to 720p resolution. After that there was God of War: Origins Collection. This set brought the PSP games God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghosts of Sparda to the PS3 and in HD as well. Between these sets we've seen every GoW game in a collection minus the 3rd. So perhaps this collection will be the three main games in one? Most likely this may be the US branding of the God of War Omega Collection which was shown earlier this year which featured both collections and 3. What games should be included in the God of War Saga Collection?
