[Beyond PlayStation] Typoman

Beyond PlayStationTypoman

Typoman is a 2D atmospheric puzzle/platformer exclusive to the Nintendo Wii U platform. The game reminds me quite a bit of Limbo since it’s set in a dark and surreal world. Mix that with a little bit of Scrabble, and you get Typoman! Oh, and instead of a boy like in Limbo for Typoman you have a stick man whose body is made of letters.

Rodea the Sky Soldier Header Image

Rodea the Sky Soldier is an exclusive title for Nintendo platforms. The game is about a robot called Rodea who wakes up after sleeping for centuries. Unfortunately, he has absolutely no memory of his past! He pairs up with a clever young mechanic called Ion who fixed him up, and together they travel the floating isles clearing out the evil robots along the way. Rodea is not totally soulless since he does have a heart, so he is a plucky little guy with feelings!

Naughty Dog Says PS3/Vita Can Do What Wii U Does

Now I do agree that the PS3 & Vita could do what the Wii U does. Question is will developers make it happen? My guess is probably not or very few games will do it. Because they need to rely on consumers to own a PS3 & Vita vs the Wii U where they just need to buy the Wii U console/controller. For that reason alone I don’t see very many Wii U type games using the PS3/Vita combo.

Below is part of a interview that NowGamer did with Justin Richmond the Game Director at Naughty Dog.

Obviously you won’t develop for Wii U, but I want to get your thoughts on the hardware. Does the console spark your imagination in any way?

Justin Richmond: To be honest with you, the idea of it is very, very cool. But there’s nothing that the Wii U has that the Vita and PS3 doesn’t. You know, it’s an interesting piece of technology, and I’m interested to see how people use it.

I’m not completely sold yet. That the screen isn’t multi-touch, that’s a little weird. It seems there are some very strange holes in it, but to be fair, last time I was sceptical of the original Wii, and look at how that did. I’m sure that he games they make for Wii U will be amazing.

What are your thoughts on this?
