A Hideo Kojima Exclusive game. Nuff said. But I’m going to say more anyway. Kojima’s first game since Konami took a huge dump on itself, will be a Norman Reedus led game called Death Stranding. From what I can find on the internet, Death Stranding will be a third-person adventure/shooter
Kojima’s first game since Konami took a huge dump on itself, will be a Norman Reedus led game called Death Stranding. From what I can find on the internet, Death Stranding will be a third-person adventure game in an open world. And besides MadsMikkelson and Guillam Del Torro’s involvement, we don’t know much. But it’s Kojima.
But still a Hideo Kojima exclusive game.
The PlayStation Experience Convention is a great platform for Sony to again present its great products to the world, gain some new fans and pump up their current fans. No doubt PlayStation will have a couple of tricks up its sleeve. Whether it’s some new Death Stranding footage or gameplay or a Last Of Us Part 2 teaser, there’s a ton to look forward to.
The Last of Us Part 2
The Last Of Us came onto the scene as one of the best stories told in gaming. It’s a combination of exposing human emotion through the use of survival mechanics and a horror-based storyline made it a standout video game to remember. So when the teaser for the Last of Us 2 dropped at last years E3, of course, we all got very excited. Unfortunately there was no Last Of Us 2 coverage at e3 2017 this year, but hopefully, they were saving the best for their own covered, PSX 2017.
God of War
God of War was shown off this year at E3 2017 and boy does it look great. The story looks to be about Kratos and his son as they set out on a journey. I love the idea of getting inside Kratos’ head through teaching his son how the world works and his role in it as a demi god. The action is still very God Of War, the enemies are bigger and better than ever and the tone is very human. I think this will be a memorable game and something all PlayStation fans should be looking forward to.
Oh wow. Is there a better marriage of dev and IP than Insomniac and Spiderman? If you haven’t played Sunset Overdrive, it’s the best game you’ve never played. The tone, style and color and attitude are all very original but the best part is the movement mechanics that make you feel like you’re flying through out the cities (without the web).
The idea of an open world Spiderman game lad by Insomniac is almost mouth watering. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see too much wall crawling from the Spiderman 2 trailer at this years E3 2017, but that doesn’t mean the game didn’t look like a ton of fun. Its gameplay is very similar to Arkham Asylum but has a completely different personality. It’s fun, colorful and quirky. Peter Parker has some great one-liners as he’s taking out each goon he faces. I personally can’t wait for this one.
Spiderman for Playstation 4 looks to be releasing sometime in 2018.
There’s a lot of hype surrounding Bungie’s sequel to their first FPSMMORPG, Destiny, and what we’ll get to explore and kill in the new Destiny 2. Between the new territories, worlds and enemies to fight in Destiny 2, there’s a lot to take in. From what I’ve seen on Twitter people have already been pleasantly surprised by the small bit of campaign they’ve gotten to play in the beta.
I’ve listed Destiny 2 here for PlayStation fans because while other consoles get to play the game, Sony gets the exclusive Destiny 2 content including strikes, armor sets, ships, PVP maps and exotic weapons.
The Inpatient and (VR in General)
The PlayStation VR Game, The Inpatient, was announced at E3 2017 this year and was a pleasant surprise. In an E3 lacking in virtual reality announcements and content, it was nice to see a VR exclusive get some love on stage. Even more surprising was the revelation that this was a sequel to Supermassive’s Until Dawn, 60 years in the past.
The Inpatient is a psychological thriller game that has you, the main character, exploring Blackwood Sanatorium, solving the mystery of who you are, why you’re there and I’m sure a there are a number of different creepy conclusions you come to in the game.
A piece of the game’s description reads:
“Over the course of the game, you’ll meet a variety of interesting patients and staff, each with their own motivations and agendas. How you react to these characters and the choices you make will have profound and dramatic consequences for how the story unfolds.”
The inpatient is set to release late 2017 this year.
Final Fantasy VII
Arguably one of the greatest games of all time, Final Fantasy VII is getting a full-blown remake. From what we’ve seen, the art direction of the game is outstanding and with the recent news of Sony making a push to ensure the quality of the Final Fantasy VII remake, I think we can expect to be hacking and slashing with Cloud in a remake worthy of the game.
While Final Fantasy VII will be coming to other platforms, it will no doubt be a timed exclusive as Sony has always been the home of Final Fantasy games.
Days Gone is Sony’s Sons of Anarchy-meets-The Walking Dead zombie apocalypse game. It’s an open world survival horror title that, a la most PlayStation Games, looks to explore the very human element of being a biker dude in a zombie-overrun world.
From what we’ve seen of the gameplay, the open world looks good and the gameplay looks fun. I especially like the idea of using zombies as a distraction and puzzle obstacles like we’ve seen in the gameplay trailer.
The release date is not yet announced for Days Gone.
Detroit Become Human
Detroit Become Human was one of the more interesting games to come out of E3 2017. It takes place in a world where androids work to serve humans but eventually gain consciousness and look to rebel, fighting for their freedom.
From what I can gather from the trailer, it looks like your choices will shape how the game plays out. I’m a huge fan of games like this. They have a lot of replayability and you always get to hear a different story when you play along with friends.
The game is set to release sometime in 2018.
