We don’t get nearly enough new IPs in the gaming world. Publishers like to go for the tried and true, but it can get boring. So it was nice to see a couple of exciting new IPs at E3 this year.
The top of the new list for me has got to be Horizon Zero Dawn. We’ve seen some wonderful post apocalypse setting in games like Fallout, but if this trailer is anything to go by then we’re in for something special. Living robot animals! The world of the Old Ones has slipped away and the remaining humans have had to learn to survive. It looks just awesome and I really don’t want to have to wait until 2016.
EA showed us a nice little light hearted game called Unravel. It’s a platformer with some new mechanics for getting from point A to point B. It looks like a bit of fun to be had.
Media Molecule have been busy busy little beavers. They’ve created two games. The first is Dreams which looks like a jumble of weird things. Who knows what it’ll turn out to be, but it definitely hs my interested. MM is good at quircky and unusual. Speaking of they’ve also got Tearaway Unfolded coming. There is a previous Tearaway game on the Vita, but it’s still a new IP and looks like a lot of fun.
For those of you who love your multiplayer and have been wishing there was a melee game for you, well there is. Ubisoft announced For Honor last night. This is a 4 vs 4 team medieval melee kill everyone game. Forced multiplayer isn’t my thing, but this still looks pretty awesome.
I’m sure there were more announced today but these are the ones that have caught my eye so far and look promising.
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]
There really was no way I was going to resist this when our own PuffyTail posted a link to it on Twitter. Yes I paid way too much for shipping from the US to the UK, but it did get here in 4 days and that includes the weekend. I’ve been waiting for this little guy forever and finally he’s here and all mine.
I really don’t have much to share. I just wanted to share my joy at getting him today. You can buy one of your own here.
