All About Pikminmaniac
Here's my tentative list of nominees for my best games of the generation, but being only one man means that I've missed out on some potential candidates over the years. That's where you come in. I'd appreciate it if you'd recommend me some games in the comments below for me to play and potentially add to this list.
-Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky
-Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012
-Super Mario Galaxy 2
-Batman Arkham City
-The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword
Seeing as how there are no more major releases that I can think of coming for last gen consoles, I suppose I'll start working on my top games of the generation nominees very soon.
Well, I just got done watching Sony's big PS4 event andI must say I'm extremely impressed. I've been saying that Sony had to make a console that's easy to develop for and it looks like that may be the number one drive for the system. Gone are the days it seems where Sony gets the inferior multiplat. It looks like third parties are strongly supporting the platform.
I'm also extremely impressed with the surprising new features. I'm very excited about the instantaniousness (not a real word) that they claim the PS4 is capable of. One of the major negatives for PS3 was having to wait through mutliple loading screens before you get to your game. The fact that you can start playing a game before it's even finished downloading sounds quite impressive.
Then there's the ability to seamlessly record pictures and video of your gaming experiences and share them with your friends. This feature alone could be hours and hours of extra fun for each game released on the system. Having that feature in Just Cause 2 pushed me to create more crazy scenarios than I would have if I could not save the experience to relive it later or share it with a friend.
Finally there's the all important games and the one studio I really care about in Sony's arsenal of developers made an appearance with my favourite Sony IP of all time. That's right, Sucker-Punch revealed their next inFAMOUS game entitled: inFAMOUS Second Son. This game is set in a George Orwell-esque distopian future in which society is so heavily policed that most of their freedom is gone. It looks like you'll be in control of a group of superpowered humans who'll either rebel against the system or cause further panic for the civilians that are already oppressed and perhaps force them to rely more heavily in their freedom sucking police. I'm extremely excited about this game.
So to sum up
-Sony had a problem with the PS3 because it was hard for developers to work with: Sony revealed that the PS4 is designed to be very easy to develop for
-Sony had a problem with PS3 because of the high frequency of loading and installing that one had to go trough to reach their gaming experience: Sony revealed that PS4 is designed so that you can instantly access any content you wish
-New video recording features are also included
-New inFAMOUS game shown albeit in cutscene form only
The only thing that's missing is the price tag. If it is a reasonable price, I believe that Sony has next gen in a bag. I'm very impressed with what I saw.
