Paris Games Week?

posted in: Game News, News | 0

Another tradeshow was brought to our collective attention as Sony held a two hour press conference to open Paris Games Week. It was a well produced press conference but there weren’t any unexpected surprises. (Of course a Gran Turismo was coming, you’re a fool if you thought otherwise.)

Even without the bombastic reveals, it was nice to see release windows narrowed and more footage of announced titles.

Media

My interest for Guerrilla Games’ Horizon: Zero Dawn grows with every piece of media I see. I don’t have a firm grasp on what exactly Monster Hunter is but this looks like a westernized Monster Hunter to me. I suggest you watch the walkthrough above, it’s neat to say the least. Then you can watch these two other videos if you wish.

Gran Turismo 6 announced for PS3

posted in: Game News | 0

Just when I thought Sony was done announcing major releases for the PlayStation 3, here comes a sequel to one of their tentpole titles. Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3 was confirmed for the a holiday 2013 release.

Now that’s not the end of it. Polyphony Digital have already mentioned they have the PlayStation 4 version of the game “in mind“. And with that tacit confirmation, I will be skipping the PlayStation 3 version.

Even if the PlayStation 4 version is nothing more than a cleaned up version of the PlayStation 3 release, I’d be more than okay with it.

But enough about the game’s platforms and release dates, what of the game itself?

It looks fine but all they showed was the racing itself which was fine in Gran Turismo 5 as well. It was everything else surrounding Gran Turismo 5 that was lacking. They claimed an improved interface but that’s one of those “I’ll believe it when I see it” situations.
