    Persona 5

    Confirmed by Atlus, yeaahhhhhhhhhhh The bad news is, that's a PS3 release date in Japan, so I think it's reasonable to expect the US/EU release in Summer '15...which is soooooooo far away nuuuuhhhhhh. Ofc most of us will be well settled in to the next gen by then, but that's really no different to the PS2 release of P4 well in to the life of the PS3. Hopefully they will manage to get P6 out on PS4 before the next gen though? Heh. Other news is that is not the only Persona game on it's way. There's also Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth on 3DS which is a dungeon crawler featuring chars from P3 and P4, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold which is a sequel (and therefore a second sequel to P4) Persona 4 Arena and IF THAT WASNT ENOUGH, there is also Persona 4: Dancing All Night which is, yes, a dance/rhythm game for Vita. Awesommee~
  2. Thought there was a thread on this, couldn't find it though. Looks interesting, space exploration is for me at least, still a pretty exciting prospect in a game. The concern of 'what you actually do', and why you actually do it, is something most gamers are going to have to be convinced of before the game comes out though, I think. There's an interesting interview with the dev's at E3 here which is worth a read, one of the most interesting points I picked out was this Curious. They also use games like Minecraft and Terraria as examples of games where players just get on with playing, and the concerns of why, and the backstory to where they are, isn't important. I remain unconvinced, but am quite eager to have a go myself all the same.

    Shenmue

    He shall appear from a far eastern land across the sea, A young man who has yet to know his potential, This potential is a power that could either destroy him or realize his will, His courage shall determine his fate, The path he must traverse, fraught with adversity, I await whilst praying, For this destiny predetermined since ancient times, A pitch black night unfolds with the morning star as its only light, And thus the saga...begins... I don't mean to alarm anyone, but....Sega have re-trademarked the Shenmue name. Now of course this could just be a formality. It probably is, actually. However, it could also mean that a potential HD remake, or better yet, the announcement of Shenmue III, could be imminent. In this thread let's talk about why Shenmue is not merely the best video game of all time, but humanity's greatest work. With that in mind, I will utter those immortal words - "Who the hell do you think you're talking to? You fu'in' with me? Kiss off, twit!"
  4. Upcoming 'intuitive open world' game from Kojima Productions. Possible release date of Q4 2018, but nothing confirmed yet. It's also unclear what the gameplay will be like - is it some sort of action RPG, survival horror, or mishmash? I'm sure for a lot of people it won't really matter, and it's probably just easiest to call it a 'Kojima' game. There's quite a history behind the development already - this colab between Kojima, Norman Reedus and Guilermo Del Toro stems from the fallout between Kojima and Konami, and that pretty incredible tech demo called P.T., aka Silent Hills. For anyone curious, the unusual name is a reference to the phenomenon of whales beaching themselves. Given the content of the footage below, it's probably safe to assume that the game deals with the end of the world as we know it - humanity beaching itself. Sounds very Kojima. It also uses Guerrillas Decima engine, which was also used in Horizon Zero Dawn, so will look and feel great. Extended 'trailer' from yesterday's games awards I think the only phrase that does that justice is 'From the mind of Hideo Kojima'
  5. The Outer Worlds is out now and is the spiritual successor to Fallout New Vegas but in a futuristic Sci-Fi setting. If you've followed coverage of the game, then you probably have heard every outlet and game review mention this but it's still worth emphasising because since New Vegas, there haven't been a lot of RPGs like it and New Vegas is almost ten years old. I've had a ton of fun playing it so far. Its refreshing to play a game that is clearly made to be the best game possible and not a vehicle to entice you to spend extra money on cosmetics and upgrades. In fact, at the time of posting there are no micro-transactions. There are also very few bugs. I've had one game crash and one incident of very slow "pop-in" and that's about it (ps4 pro for reference). It certainly puts other bigger studios to shame in this regard. The game is at it's best when you are exploring every nook and cranny to uncover the true narrative of what is happening in the world. It also has tonnes of NPCs with interesting dialogue options and side quests. Choices I've had to make so far have been tough ones and they do seem to have an impact on the world. It isn't, however, a looter-shooter. I'm 15 hours in and combat has been brief and simple. It's still satisfying to craft an overpowered weapon and make short work of enemies, but it lacks the horror element of say Fallout 3, where, at the start of the game you felt very vulnerable and each encounter was tense. I've already thinking of a genocide run on the hardest setting for my next playthough to alleviate this. Overall I would say it's very much worth your time and I really hope it's a commercial success. Single player games of this type are few and far between if you're not into Souls-like games and if it does well, it may encourage other smaller studios to follow suit.
  6. As there is already a topic for 'Xbox 720', and has been for some time, I felt it only fair to make one for the 'PS4' aswell. Well, kind of. There is even less info on this than there is for the new Xbox. Well I say even less, there's practically nothing. However, the recent annoucement of The Last of Us release date has put the rumour mill into overdrive. It was originally assumed that The Last of Us would be given a pre-xmas 2013 slot to be Sony's big money grabber for the period, as nothing else major is expected for then. But with the (much earlier than anticipated) release of The Last of Us being Q2 2013, certain corners of the internet sprang to the conclusion that the PS4 would be released Xmas 2013, as the new Xbox is expected to. The latest rumour, though, is that it won't be until after that - much later possibly, as far as Q3 2014. Which begs the quesion, what does Sony have up it's sleave for next Christmas? Nothing at all? Unlikely. Maybe another essential bit of kit for your PS3 like Wonderbook or Move. It's also alledged to be codenamed 'Thebes'. I must admit that my preference, even before specs and anything else are announced, is for the new PS over the new Xbox, for the simple reason that I have owned all of Sony's consoles and prefer them over MS'.
  7. Looks like it's going to be WW2 judging by the clip released in this tweet. Have to say I'm quite surprised by that. Thought they may have gone for Vietnam or a Modern setting since COD just did WW2. I found BF1 quite boring really, so not really feeling a WW2 game. Would rather a BF3 type setting.
  8. A thread for itself rather than the general FF thread. I couldn't really be happier with what they've done, based on this teaser alone. The change to the battle system was absolutely required, there was no possible way a turn based system could have been used. The field sections, as brief as they appear here, are exactly the kind of thing that appeared in the FFXV Episode Duscae 'demo', and combat seems similar-ish too. Good signs. Story seems untouched, lines are lifted straight out of the original, and not giving the option to name Cloud is a no brainer. I don't mind the cheesy voiceovers either, kinda comes with the territory, but it could only be temporary voices used just for this. Very happy with how it's shaping up, there's nothing there I don't like.
  9. A completely bizarre resurgence for Resident Evil probably deserves a topic. Resi 7 is incredibly well regarded and this remake of 2 looks astounding. I'm not the biggest fan of the series, I've completed REmake on the GC and I've bought 4 about 3 times (and hated it every time), but I'm down for this new REmake. @villarule123 REmake is still very playable but you have to remember it's a very old game underneath (it's basically the original game from 96 with some fancy paint on top). It's nothing like any modern game really, with clunky controls (tank style!) and fixed perspective design. Still looks surprisingly good mind and it's a classic for a reason. Also the addition of crimson head zombies is inspired.

    Yakuza

    NA/EU Playstation 4 exclusive out on 24th Jan, getting pretty excellent reviews at the moment. It's a prequel to the series which debuted on PS2 way back when. The main line games have an on going storyline which is decent, this being a prequel set in the 80's means there is no presumption that you know the characters before hand. Succesful back in JP, not so much in the West. The best way to sum it up would be a mash up between a small scale GTA (without cars, usually) and Shenmue. The combat does include guns, but mostly you'll be fighting hand to hand, picking up what ever you can get your hands on to smash your foe over the head with. Think bins, cones, shop signs, etc... One of the reasons the series may have some measure of infamy is it's attention to detail in the recreation of it's fictional verions of Tokyo and Osaka. This is where the Shemue comparison comes in. There are corner shops, bars, arcades (it's a Sega game, this one is set in the 80s, you can play them), bowling alleys, RC car racing, and as serious as the main story can be, the massive amount of side quests are varied massively, from the sublime to the ridiculous - in the best possible way. It also depicts 'Hostess Bars' in detail, with (I think) Yakuza 3 being heavily cut in the west to remove certain elements. Yakuza 0 is left untouched, though - in fact there isn't even an English dub, just subs. On the down side this is a PS3 port (which was unavailable in the west) and they've never been the prettiest of games as it is - and it seems as though it shows here. Textures are shoddy, and some animations aren't very clever, but it appears to be far from unplayable. Here is a shitty trailer from E3, if you're curious I would suggest looking at some gameplay vids or something

    Trials

    I remember originally playing Trials or Trials 2 on miniclip.com back in the day, obviously since then the series has come on leaps and bounds but the premise is still the same. Downloading Trials Fusion now, looks really good IMO. Always fun games to play, anybody else getting it?
  13. For fans of Rick and Morty.
  14. Apparently this is rather good. I only ever played the original, back in 2002, but might eventually have to jump in with this. Obviously not everyone's cup of tea but I'm intrigued with how they've mixed up the gameplay from the standard hack and slash fare.

    For Honor

    Anyone seen the trailer thingy for this yet?! Looks awesome!!

    The latest trailer looks insane!
  17. I mentioned this briefly in the Dark Souls II thread but I thought I'd make a new topic for this as some new footage has shown up and so it can be discussed separately from DSII now more information about it is leaking. Here's a pretty decent summary from Souls game nut VaatiVidya that shows the clips and discusses them in more detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxy-b0i7864 Seems this could be a PS4 exclusive too. In a video made a few weeks ago, Vaati talks about how this may be a Demon's Souls sequel since it appears to be a Sony exclusive and they own the Demon's Souls IP, hence why they made Dark Souls so they could multi-platform and have more control over the game. I'm not sure myself. Demon's Souls was very much set in a medieval age much like Dark Souls is, whereas the footage from Beast gives the impression the game is set much more recently in history, especially now that guns have been confirmed as a featured weapon. I know there's a few Dark Souls aficionados here on VT that will be keeping their eyes on this one, so here's a thread to talk about it and to post relevant news as and when it comes about. Here's the first VaatiVidya video he posted a few weeks ago too, if anyone hasn't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M2Y-R18Mo0
  18. This is a game for anime loving 5 year olds only, if you are only one or neither of those things, be best to leave now the thread now tbf. I must admit I have some reservations over the story, in comparison to the first game/s, at least judging by what the trailer shows. Basically I want Mr Drippy back, ent it mun? But gosh it looks beautiful.
  19. OMG, it looks beautiful. I know they always look good in this series, but 4k wonderfulness is probably enough for me to get involved.
  20. PS4 exclusive from Killzone devs Guerrilla Games, out next week and reviewing very well. Post apocalyptic action role player, with third person combat involving spears, bow and arrows, harpoon guns, stealth, and an open world. The biggest draw here is probably the fancy pants looking enemies - animals and dinosaurs in robot form referred to simply as 'Machines' rule the world, the reason for which is examined in the story. Of which is apparently one of the weaker aspects of the game. The open world itself and combat hold up very well it seems, and it's pretty stunning to look at. There's a few elements taken from other games - a Batman style 'focus' allows you to survey the area and locate Machine weak points, there's also the Ubisoft approach to the open world in so far as bits and bobs are dotted all over to investigate, and you can climb giant giraffe-like machines instead of radio towers to unlock sections of the map. I was always rather impressed by the teasers we've seen over the years, looks like it might actually live up to the expectation.
  21. Got 10/10 on Gamespot & IGN. Reviewing very highly across the board. I've never played any of the games, don't know what they're about, don't know if I'd like them, but after reading the reviews, it almost certainly seems like there would be a good game there. Anyone getting it?
  22. Anyone picking up the new COD? I haven't played a COD for years, probably BLOPS1 was the last one I played. However, the new "Blackout" (Battle Royale) mode actually looks incredibly fun. All streamers seem to be loving it and i'm enjoying watching it too. The BETA for Blackout starts today on PC and Xbox for anyone who wants to give it a go. I've pre-ordered on Amazon for a code but will cancel the pre-order if it's shit.
  23. That's right, guy - news at the last on the sequel to not just the best game of all time, but humanity's greatest achievement, the game known the world over simply as... 'Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars'. **** yes.
  24. + Bioware blog mentioning next ME Will be interesting to see what direction they head in with the series next. A game set in a time period prior to ME, during the First Contact Wars or Rachni Wars, perhaps? The assertion that the founders quit due to EA is curious, could the next games be co-op heavy (blergh!) ? It's all a very long way off yet though. Plus the new IP. They've done sci-fi, they've done Tolkein-esque fantasy, they've done licenesed stuff with Star Wars, they've done dungeon crawlers and an MMO. Plus some anceint chinese set RPG or something (Jade Empire). Where next? Next gen, probably. Maybe they could make an actual properly good Pirate game, which hasn't ever been done, has it...?
  25. It's coming to PS4, and better still, a new game is coming to PS4 also, entitled Valkyria: Azure Revolution. Although the article I've read today refers to Chronicles as a remake, I'm not convinced, it may just be a port/remaster like the one that came to Steam years after the original on PS3. For the unitiated, Valkryia Chronicles is a turn based strategy/third person shooter set in something akin to an AU at the time of WWII, complete with weaponry of the period, plus some fantasy elements, whilst also being heavily anime stylised. You could say it was, and still is, rather unique. It was followed by VC2 and VC3 on PSP, although the latter was JP only. It was for me the most underrated game on PS3, along with SARPBC. A rare example that nailed every element of the game - the art style is fantastic, gameplay easy to get on with but with a learning curve steep enough to keep interest, brilliant soundtrack, and perhaps best of all, the characters and story were an absoloute delight. Well, maybe the wrong choice of words, as it deals head on with the tragedy of war, loss, and the holocaust, but it is all the better for it (plus it had a cameo of Vyse and Aika from Skies of Arcadia which pretty much cements it's position as top 10 of all time for me). TLDR; Buy them when they're on PSN.
