The Japanese PS3 site has a nice video demonstration of Eye of Judgement with Assistant Producer (or is he?), Yusuke Watanabe, chatting about various aspects of the Yu Gi Oh alike card game.
According to IGN, who translated what Watanabe-san had to say in the video interview, Eye of Judgement is only possible on the PS3:
“Eye of Judgment is a title that will deliver a brand new experience to the user. It’s a difficult concept, and we believe that it is something that can only be achieved on the PlayStation 3.”
The game works by using technology that scans 2D bar codes, known as Cyber Codes, which the camera picks up & then displays the monster & it’s attributes/actions that’s associated with the Cyber Code.
There will be a versus mode set over a 3×3 grid but there may also be the option to battle players from anywhere in the world over the PLAYSTATION online network.
As you may have probably guessed you don’t need to touch the PS3 controller to play Eye of Judgement as the cards do all the work. Just make sure to wipe your hands after munching on some Pork Scratchings before you touch the cards.
It’s a nice little reminder for people who can’t wait to see more of this unique game at TGS ’06. My interest is high for this game.
Back in early August From Software announced that it had ceased productions on its PS3 titles, specifically calling time on the development of two titles announced at TGS 2005- Dark RPG and Black Blade.
That’s why I was taken a bit aback when From Software not only announced they were working on a PS3, but that it was also going to be a “near-launch” title. The title in question- Enchanted Arms- is a port of an xbox360 game recently released in the States and plays as a fairly traditional RPG with a Strategic Battle System. The game received fairly average reviews, but its porting suggest ties in with a growing sense of frustration from Japanese developers that xbox360 titles developed specifically for the region are failing to shift suitable numbers. The hope is clearly that a re-release on PS3 will provide a much needed boost to sales. The shot above is taken from the xbox360 version of the game. At this time it is unknown as to whether the PS3 will feature any graphical or gameplay changes.
You can find a whole batch of new Eye of Judgment images here along with some screens of Warhawk & Genji 2.
Below is a video of the E3 presentation of Eye of Judgement:
That’s one powerful duck.
I’m very intrigued by this game. It looks like it could offer something vastly different from the usual mix of FPS, racers & beat em ups on offer at launch.
When the game was previewed at E3 there was no lag present between you placing the card, doing the actions & what occurred on screen as a result, which is going to be vital when you place more cards on the grid.
I just hope there are enough variations between the cards & what they contain both offensively & defensively.
More info should be revealed at TGS when Eye of Judgement is playable. I’m keeping my fingers crossed they pull this off & it actually is fun to play.
I just wish it actually was Yu Gi Oh though! Now that would be awsome!
The Magic Box has a few images of forthcoming PS3 uber fun golf game, Everybody’s Golf 5. Well it’s called Everybody’s Golf 5 in Europe or Hotshot Golf 5 in North America or Minna no Golf 5 in Japan…
If you haven’t played any of the previous games in the series & you want a different type of golf game than what Tiger Woods offers, maybe a little more fun & wacky, then Everybody’s Golf could be the game for you.
Very little is known about the PS3 version but it will be playable at TGS ’06 and I’m sure it will be just as much fun as the previous games in the series.
Eye of Judgement is one of the those games I have a love-hate relationship with. I love the graphics, the monsters, the technology behind using the EyeToy and cards to do this. I hate – well, hate is a strong word, maybe “dislike” would be better – card battle games. I’m just not a big fan of card battle games, though I did play Magic the Gathering for a bit.
But I have to say that the game screenshots look pretty cool. And now we have some more to gaze at, courtesy of PlayFrance. Follow the link for more.
