Hey everyone, Baba Booey here with yet another review of one awesome game. So let me start off a tad bit different than usual. Let’s take a trip to the past, mid 1980’s. I know for some of you that may be reading this, you weren’t even a thought at that time, but for the rest of us, we can remember a time when platforming games where king. That’s all we played; the NES did platform games so well; Mega Man, Contra, and Castlevania to name a few. As the years went on, they became watered down and mundane without innovation, without soul or substance, and then the platform genre started to die as games became more advanced and we soon forgot about the genre that dominated the game scene…Until now!!
Now I know what you are saying, “But Baba we have some great platformers already, what about Little Big Planet?” Well yes I can understand that, but understand games like Little Big Planet have large development budgets, the PSN Minis don’t count, and I have yet to play a decent PSN platformer title, but please take into account that this is my opinion. So enough of the blah blah, why don’t we get into why this game is so great.
I KNEW it couldn’t last for long! After week after week after week packed with retail and digital content we HAD to run into a week of lower profile releases at retail as publishers are (mistakenly) waiting for the 2nd week of november to unleash every single product they have left hoping to make you part with your holiday gaming money.
What are the retail and PSN highlights of the week? Find out after the break!
This will be the last week of the Only on PSN releases AND the last week for you to try and make the cut for the “Spend $60 on the PSN Store and receive $10 in credit in november” promo. I’m only $17 short so I’ll be sure to make it to $60 once the PSN store updates on tuesday.
Apparently, early copies of Battlefield 3 have made it to selected consumers. A quick search on Youtube will result in a few unboxing videos of DICE’s upcoming shooter scheduled for shipping on October 25th.
The unboxing videos are not the star of the show, As a black leaflet packaged with the retail game reveals, what seems to be, Danger Close Games (Medal of Honor Developer) next project.
It would only make sense, as Medal of Honor developer Danger Close Games was hiring developers for an upcoming unannounced AAA FPS back in January and it fits perfectly with EA’s plans to release their major sequel shooters on a yearly basis. The black leaflet shows the entails of Medal of Honor and the well known (Tier 1 like) logo with a website address that will direct you to the current Medal of Honor website.
Via Siliconera, The Playstation Vita is set to gain some new apps that will be bundled with certain games. Tales of Innocence R will be the first of these app giving games.
Tales of Innocence R comes with two apps. …
Hyperkin’s Remotext is designed to be everything to everyone: gaming controller, media remote, and full QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately, certain design flaws hinder Remotext’s performance in the first two areas. And as the controller is really only successful as a keyboard, it’s difficult to recommend this product to anyone who wants more than a mini keyboard.
Q-Games has released a promising launch trailer for their PSN exclusive, old school shooter PixelJunk Sidescroller. The developer confirmed via Twitter, Wednesday October 25th, as the release date for the EU PS store.
