I really do want to emphasize the word finally because for the longest time this was one of the major reasons I wanted to get a PS3. Since I never did get one (but spoiler alert, I will be very soon), I never got to play this game.
Pixeljunk Eden currently is a PS3 exclusive title made by Japanese developer Q-Games, itsan artistic blend of abstract visuals, some platforming and rope-swinging game elements fused into a puzzle environment. That’s all I can really say from the numerous previews I’ve seen of the game, now I’d like to actually play the thing. Hit the jump for a video preview of the game (although it is from the PS3 version).
I am shocked that more publications aren’t talking about this. The post-game analysis from 2011’s console sales should be in at this point and it almost feels like nobody wants to say anything. Being the tiny gaming blog that I am maybe that’s where I come in.
Wii sales were down dramatically last year. Nintendo’s quick jump to sales glory seems to be followed by an even sharper drop to near-obscurity. What does it mean for the industry at large? Was all this money, development and marketing spent on motion controls just a complete waste of our time? Let’s investigate deeper into what happened exactly and see why not only the Wii was a just a just a huge fad, but motion controls to begin with.
Some people just try too hard. Or at least cheat too hard.
One gamer, who apparently goes by the name of “HotShot_01”, has been banned for 14 years on the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 3 or more specifically – 5000 days.
“HotShot” was caught boosting in the game by using 6 copies of the game on 6 different PS3 consoles. How exactly this was used to actually boost is beyond me right now, I still can’t get over the idea that someone would buy six of the same console just to prestige several times. You get the same guns each time you know! Even more hilarious is his twitter account which appears to be created for the sole purpose of telling everyone about it:
Shadow of the Colossus and ICO are out on September 27. Yes, I have never played either of these games. Yes, they are both previous generation games that I could have played by now by getting an old PS2. And yes, I couldn’t be bothered.
Sure there’s other games I’d like to play on the PS3 (mostly PS2 ports), but who really cares when you see fucking artwork like this? I’ve heard amazing things when it comes to Shadow of the Colossus for years now, so I think it’s finally time to man-up and grab the console that I’ve been somehow managing to slip by until now. You’ve finally convinced me Sony, with 2 games that have been around for years.
