E3 has come and gone by and most of the year’s press conferences were boring (what was EA even smoking?). Having said that, some of these did grab my attention. Below are a list (in no specific order) of gameplay/trailers/things I’m looking for and thought were good. Enjoy
VR and me go like chalk and cheese - ever since a kid, I’ve had motion sickness which limited me from playing most FPS games and my last attempt at VR(at IGX 2016) was a disaster - I barely could withstand 30 seconds of VR. Granted the game selection was bad - for me anyway (Driveclub on PSVR) - still I didn’t expect that bad of a reaction.
Few months ago for our second wedding Anniversary, after much discussions on what to get for each other - we decided to get a PlayStation 4. This was a rather surprising decision considering
- I’ve never been a console gamer(barring the SNES clones that Dad got for my Brahmopadesham)
- I’ve had a fairly decent gaming computer and spend a lot of time in front of the computer than a TV
- I really don’t like playing with controllers and pretty bad with it
Few months back Subbu lent me his PS Vita loaded with.. pretty much all the Vita games on the planet - however, my aim was to play Persona 4 as it has come highly recommended by Mike, Kush and just about everyone else. And I did, and really enjoyed it. When I was not playing Persona 4, Jo would occasionally grab the Vita and play Sound Shapes - and she really enjoyed it as well.
With our Anniversary in sight and us liking the Vita so much, I thought we should get the Vita, but with lack of games and us both wanting to play together, we ended up with the PS4. I waited for a bit till I got a deal on the PS4 - the PlayStation 4 1TB “Ultimate Player Edition" had price drop of Rs. 3,000, decided to grab that. Besides the increased storage, the bundle came with 2 games(inFamous Second Son and God of War Remastered back then)
