Papo & Yo Hands On Preview

Jason checked out this unique title last night and was blown away by the experience. Check out his impressions!

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- Coming 2012 to PSN exclusively

- Chalk lines on sidewalk with a Child

- Cardboard box houses

- Kid picked up boxes - able to reassemble houses irl to make a path

- boy and friend monster

- monster eats poison frog for energy, turns evil when he does

- platforming puzzles, light team work

- the boy seemed to almost be raising the monster, and interactions with the monster would open up progress.

- At one point, the boy lured the monster into a square chalk line with food, and a giant cardboard box appeared around the monster, like what one would keep a pet in.

- Monster looks like a pink rhino with big shoulders.

- After trapping him in the box, a few buildings submerged underground, opening up more of the pathway.

- At this point, you had to lure a monster onto a chalk-like switch, and use a toy robot he's afraid of to scare him into standing still to progress.

- Anyway, after that you feed him the giant poison dart frogs, he goes on a rampage, and the demo is over.

I'm very excited to actually get hands on with this game. The title alone intrigues me so much.

I didn't get the chance to see it on the show floor today, but I did get to see Bastion, an awesome indie title. I'll be working on some quick audio impressions of that pretty soon now that the floor is closed.

The Nintendo Switch Chicago Preview Event

On Friday, February 17th, I had the opportunity to travel to Chicago and check out Nintendo’s upcoming new system—The Switch, as well as fifteen different titles releasing within the Switch’s first year. As a longtime fan of video games, I’d read about events like E3 and press preview events and dream about going to one of these one day. Since I’m not involved in games journalism and live in the Midwest, I never imagined I’d have a chance to attend a preview event. The only time I went to something of this level was Nintendo’s E3 Best Buy event in 2013, where I spent three hours in line so I could play one Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze level. When Nintendo emailed me an invitation to preview the Switch, I immediately snagged two tickets. When I left for the event with my friend Marcus, I expected something similar to that Best Buy preview.
