So E3 is officially over, no more conferences, announcements or big huge mega coverage (for the most part). So now that the beast is sleeping again let’s take a trip back to this week and see what I personally enjoyed/didn’t enjoy and things I’m looking forward to or curious about.
The god of war series has been one of, if not the defecto leader in action games since the first one was unleashed on to Playstation 2s back in 2005. Five years and in total four games later God of War III has hit the Playstation 3. Three years since the last console iteration, does God of War III live up to the hype? In the words of Kratos, the main character “Raaaaagggghhhhh”. Which translates to yes, by the gods yes it does.
I’m not gonna try to argue against this, God of War is one of my favorite series, ever, and some might take that as “This review will be exaggerated”, I assure you what I say is pretty much fact. (You’re still welcome to agree or disagree in the comments section). So if you’re new to the God of War series, it is a series based in Greek mythology and is supposed to explain why Greek mythology is no longer around. The series is known for its extreme violence, story, gameplay and graphics/sound.
With that explanation, God of War III takes place right where God of War II left off.
*Spoiler Note* I will white out names of certain weapons and or enemies to reduce spoilers, if you wish to see them, highlight over the space*
The Pixeljunk series, for me and many Playstation 3 players, has a special place in our hearts. Each game in the series has a different gameplay style, ranging from tower defense in Pixeljunk Monsters, to platforming in PixelJunk Eden. What each game in the series has in common however, is a polish and art style that makes it hard to not love each game. Now the developer, Q-Games, is tackling the dual analog shooter, with, well Pixeljunk Shooter!
For over twenty years the Final Fantasy series has been a force to be reckoned with in the RPG genre. Now the thirteenth entry in the main series (Really the twelfth since XI was an MMO) has been released for the Playstation 3 & Xbox 360. How does the first HD Final Fantasy hold up? More Importantly, is it worth playing?
While Final Fantasy XIII isn’t the best in the series, it’s certainly not something that should be passed up by RPG fans. There have been quite a few criticism thrown out at the game but they have been largely exaggerations of a few design problems (which range from annoying to, well more annoying).
Fat Princess is the first game developed by Epic Games China owned Titan Studios. With its quirky premise and colorful/cutesy presentation does Fat Princess have what it takes to become a PSN downloadable classic? or will it fall into the pits to be forgotten?
