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.

Final Fantasy XV Hands On Preview

It’s good to be able to admit when you’re wrong. I had zero expectations for Final Fantasy XV (I prefer to call it “The Artist Formerly Known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII”) to be anything I would be interested in. Heck, I didn’t even believe it was a game that had ever existed in playable form. I would chalk that up to the seven year development cycle and the fact that even by last year I had never heard of anyone ever seeing a live gameplay demo. Well, here I stand, saying that I was wrong. Final Fantasy XV is not vaporware, and it’s not half bad, either!
