Square recently released a CLOUD DVD in Japan and on it are some new trailers for FFXIII and FFXIII Versus. I don’t have the DVD (anybody?) or any idea of what the DVD is about but I’m assuming this is one of the trailers on the DVD:
Pretty sweet. Can’t wait for this game. I still haven’t finished FFXII yet. I really should put more time into it now that I’m done with Oblivion.
Here’s the FFXIII Versus trailer just for ehandlr:
Maybe it’s better that the PS3 gets a delayed version of a game for once:
The company is spending more time on it after the 360 version failed to ignite critical fuses when it was released in September. According to a spokesperson for the publisher, they’re polishing up technical areas and putting together a more enticing demo than Live customers were treated to.
I have to admit that Fatal Inertia doesn’t look like my kind of game. I’m a fan of racing games in general, but I don’t like the particular sub-genre wherein the vehicle doesn’t actually touch the road. You lose a sense of actually controlling the vehicle.
But if this version is that much better than the 360 version, then I’ll at least give it a rental.
IGN are far more impressed with Folklore though:
Let’s just end our commentary by saying that a great deal of the magnificence in Folklore comes from the little details: the serenity within a field of bristling flowers and cascading petals, or the charm of a stairway that rings with laughter when your character’s foot falls upon it – these are just a few of the many moments that may bring an awed smile to your face.
Unfortunately, though the game is very enjoyable to play, the menu load time, framerate, and level repetition issues can detract from the gameplay experience. But we strongly recommend that you don’t let these concerns stop you from playing Folklore. This is one of the best titles to hit the PlayStation 3, and its eccentricity and charm are undeniable. Unless you’re just a straight adrenaline junkie, don’t miss your opportunity to witness the poetry and magic of this ethereal hit.
Hmm I played the demo and wasn’t blown away by it. I still haven’t done Oblivion or FFXII yet so I don’t know if I need another RPG. Then there’s the 6 or 7 must have games due out for the PS3 over the next 3 months. I don’t think I will have the time fit Folklore in.
Here’s a video about Day 1 Studio’s new shooter, Fracture. It’ll be published by LucasArts, and has as its calling card the ability to alter terrain. So far, it looks like a rental to me – I haven’t seen anything that’s said “buy me!”.
flOw has to be the most unique and simple game on the PS3, it’s a game I always show to people when they come over for the first time. Everyone I’ve shown it to really likes it. The expansion will add a new creature, a new enemy, and new food. Sounds good to me. The new creature looks like like a small circle surrounded by hooked barbs, and pressing any button will close the barbs and thus protecting your creature from your enemies, then releasing the button will send you into a spin which you can use to attack. The new enemy is similar to a puffer fish, when you get close it puffs up with spikes all over its body. Another addition is to the multiplayer, you can play as two different creatures. Overall this expansion will add about 15% more flOw for you to enjoy. No release date at this time.
Below is the trailer for flower made by Thatgamecompany, same people who made flOw. I have no clue what the gameplay would be like in flower, your guess is as good as mine. But it looks very interesting.
