Bonus Round – Year In Review Part 1 of 4

posted in: Game News 0

GameTrailers added the first of their four part series titled “Year In Review”. In it, Michael Pachter, N’Gai Croal and GameTrailers’ Editor-in-Chief, Shane Satterfield, share their insight about the console race so far. They started off with Sony and their year. Some good insight and high hopes for a Sony Spring 2008 rebound, but to even suggest that the PS3 will have Wii like sales in 2008 is just absurd.

I just watch it for N’Gai’s insight and the potential “absurd” predictions/suggestions which Pachter may drop. Not a lot of news for me, but it was a solid recap of what Sony did and what they need to do to succeed.

Dispelling earlier rumors, Capcom issued a press release (Thanks Hexus.gaming) today which revealed that a demo of Capcom’s hack and slash devilry will be hitting the XBOX Live! Marketplace and the PSN Store sometime early 2008.

Between, Devil May Cry 4, Ninja Gaiden 2 (XBOX 360) and the potential release of God of War 3 (PS3), 2008 is shaping up to be an excellent year for fans of the genre. FPS purists be damned, 2008 is the year of the third person action adventure.

You have your defenders whom I respect and thanks to the likes them, I have given you a chance and picked you up along with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for $89.99 from BestBuy. I wanted to see for myself if you lived up to the hype and the potential you instilled a few years back. Despite my gut feeling after the disappointing E3 2007 demonstration, I still held a glimmer of hope for you. Well, the game was released and I took the time to finish it and to be honest my impression of you has not changed; I still see potential in you despite your numerous flaws.
