All we know about this PlayStation 4 exclusive (which isn't a whole lot).
There was plenty of excitement about the final salvo Sony fired at their E3 press conference on Monday night, maybe to such a degree that they forgot about an exclusive PlayStation 4 game that debuted before the grand finale. The only new exclusive game revealed during the conference, The Order: 1886 looks like it could satisfy our collective need for new properties on our flashy new console.
Kratos, a man of many emotions – angry, pissed off, furious, and did I mention angry?
Good news, everyone! PixlBit has already reviewed both Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. Both received a rating of 4 stars on the PSP, and if you're a fan of the series, surely the same will hold true here. Sony has lovingly ported these games to the PlayStation 3 with great results. Both games look strikingly good for PSP remasters and both control as you'd expect with the de facto PlayStation controller, as opposed to the often awkward PSP nub.
Matt is PO’d again, and the house of Mega Man is in his sights.
If there was one video game company during the NES era that seemed to almost one-up Nintendo in terms of quality games, it was Capcom. Whether it was releasing games starring the blue bomber himself or making great licensed Disney games, they could do no wrong. They continued this with the SNES, the Playstation 1, the Gamecube, the DS – and people loved them.
Another quality addition to the popular series that sticks closely to its tried-and-true formula.
This year has been a big one for God of War fans, with the release of the highly anticipated third edition of the series, God of War III, and now a brand new adventure, Ghost of Sparta. The new title features a great story that offers some rare insight into Kratos' background, driving forward a fast-paced quality adventure that the series is known for. Though the title is a bit short and doesn't expand upon the usual God of War formula, die-hard fans will undoubtedly be thrilled by the familiar experience.
Sam gives us the lowdown (a lengthy one at that!) on Chains of Olympus for PixlBit's first Review Rewind.
I’d like to start off saying that I have been a fan of the God of War series for years. Back in 2005 (I say it like it was ages ago), I remember sitting down, watching Cheat on television and being tickled by the concept of a game that seemed to combine punching things in the face with Greek mythology. In 2007, sometime before God of War 2 hit markets, I remember sitting down (at a different television this time) to introduce my fellow Pixlbit-er Chessa to the game that finally forced me to learn where the buttons on the PS2 controller were, all while cussing up a merry storm as she stood by, slack-jawed, at the token violence, random optional sex, and angry bald Spartan grunting.
