E3 2012 Impressions

Most Anticipated Game

Beyond: Two Souls: Out of every video game across every device (console/phone/PC) that we’ve seen during the past six years, the one that really captured my daughter’s imagination (who is now 13) the most was Heavy Rain. She normally doesn’t play video games, almost every other game shown wouldn’t grab her attention, but she has literally played through Heavy Rain. Even her friends (who also don’t play games) are tempted to buy a PS3 for this one title. I’m dying to get this new game for her and see her experience it.

Last of Us

Can someone explain how this is different from Uncharted? Uncharted is great, but I have to say, I was hoping for something a little more distinct.

E3 2012: Sony Conference May Have Skipped the Vita But E3 Didn’t

Sony’s conference left a lot to be desired in the way of the Vita at E3. With only a couple of announcements, it left us Vita owners and future owners feeling a little empty inside. Well fear not friends. Showcased on the E3 floor and announced by many other publishers, several Vita games have been shown off and I will give you the run down right here and now.

Before listing the games, revealed also at E3 were a few Apps for the Vita.

Crackle
Hulu Plus
Wake Up Club
Youtube

Above and beyond the apps and games shown, PSOne games have been confirmed to be added this summer!

Be warned, this is a long list after the jump of all the Vita games on display, announced or playable at E3.

E3 2012: God of War Ascension Gameplay

Oh how I have loved the God of War games. In my opinion, they are among the coolest of titles on PlayStation. Some might say that the series may be overstaying its welcome, but I say as long as the story’s good, and they keep the gameplay as fluid as it has always been, bring it!

At E3 this year, Sony showed off some very intense gameplay from the next title in the GOd of War series, Ascension, which still has the series’ signature fast-paced, bloody action and an assortment of mythological creatures (with this one showing off some new ones, including what is likely going to be a future boss fight sticking its tentacles where they don’t belong). Anyone else looking forward to this one?

E3 2012: PlayStation All-Stars Coming to Vita; Drake and Big Daddy Confirmed

Alright, let’s get the obvious out of the way. What does this game remind you of? What other game had themed levels based on the characters, or the worlds from which they came, within the game? You guessed it. Super Smash Brothers. Except this game has Kratos, a Helghan soldier, Sweet Tooth, and the hardest of hardcore, Parappa the Rapper.

The game was originally announced back in April, and had some gameplay footage then to go along with it. At E3, however, it was revealed that Drake and Big Daddy would also be characters, and that the title will also make its way onto the Vita, with cross platform play to boot. With the inclusion of third party characters, and given that Big Daddy is even a multiplatform character, who else can we expect in the roster?

Even though it seems like a rip off of SSB, it could still be a lot of fun, at least for quick spurts of fun. As a kid, I enjoyed going over to my neighbor’s house and having tournaments on the N64. Some PlayStation fans have never played those games, so this could be fresh to them.
