So a few of my own highlight from yesterday’s announcements and I’m going to start with my top of the heap favourite. When I heard this news today I actually whooped a little. They’re remastering Grim Fandango.
Of course we have the beauty of the next Assassin’s Creed game. I’m really excited for this. It looks like the free running and combat has been changed and it looks good. I’m also happy to see more building interiors and a floating waypoint.
Then we have the wonderful news of another Uncharted and another Far Cry on the way for our loving joy.
And lastly we have a little puzzle game with some lovely art and should be with us soon; Valiant Hearts. Visually very stunning and just my sort of game.
I’ve never been one to hide my obsession with the Assassin’s Creed games. Every year I’ve bought the new AC game, although I got Brotherhood a bit later due to misconception of its gameplay. AC is one of those October/November games that rapes my bank account for all its worth too and this year it’s twice as bad. This year there are 2 games.
The first is Liberation, which is the Vita game, and we get our very first female assassin. I think you might not know just how happy and excited this makes me. I loved Altaïr and Ezio to bits and I’m sure to love Connor just as much, but it’s not the same. Aveline will be different though and yes some of that has to do with her being female. The sheer amount of FemSheps out there should be a testament to how much women like to play kick ass women in games. Given AC thus far, I think Aveline will deliver on the kick ass part at least.
Liberation is out on October 30th. Now if you’re in North America you’re going to get AC3 the same day. I will at least have a 1 day breather, not that this helps much, as it appears in the EU on the 31st. Know what makes it even worse? October 30/31 is in the middle of the fucking week. It’s enough to make a girl scream. Guess I should book my days off now…
Got two great videos for AC3 for you. Both of these show off the new game very nicely.
First the AnvilNext engine trailer, then a nice little walkthrough of some of the newness of AC3 and Connor.
For a long time now we knew that LittleBigPlanet was coming to the Vita. There have been many videos and such teasing. Now we finally have a release date and the EU is getting it first! W00T!
It’ll be released next month, September. In the EU we get it on the 19th, Japan the 20th and North America on the 25th.
Yes I have pre-ordered it; like that wasn’t going to happen. On the Playstation blog they also released a new video just to tease us a little bit more.
I bought a Vita at launch, something I don’t normally do. The Vita though I have absolute faith in and I love it. Also, the news that there was going to be a Little Big Planet for the Vita, made me do a little happy dance.
We’re getting closer and closer to its release and I’m so excited. For anyone unaware or anyone who’s anxiously waiting like me, here’s a making of video for you. It makes me really excited to watch this. I cannot wait to have this game in my hands.[youtube http://youtu.be/ZVwql4a3UuA?hd=1]
