Soapbox: Games Are Allowing Players to Be More Expressive, And It's Ace

You’re in control.What was the story of E3 2018 apart from cross-play and an abundance of amazing late-generation games? For me, it was player choice. This is nothing new, of course – the promise that you can “play your own way” has been a buzzword espoused by developers for eons, and it was a particularly prevalent selling-point in last year’s game of the year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.But I feel like this kind of design philosophy is coming to the fore more, and it’s something that I personally enjoy. I’m having a wild old time with…

Miyazaki explains.Déraciné got a bit of a rough deal at E3 2018. This PlayStation VR exclusive developed by FromSoftware was announced just after Sony’s main press conference was over, and what could otherwise have been an interesting and memorable reveal was somewhat overshadowed. However, a new post on the PlayStation Blog delves into some details about this curious virtual reality adventure.You play as an invisible faerie in Déraciné as you navigate through an old-fashioned boarding school that’s been frozen in time.

Games need to take a Minit and think about their huge worlds

Time limits are a much maligned bit of game design. A single level with a race against time is fine, Halo’s final warthog run or Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s desperate fight through a nuclear silo. But turn that into a whole game? People still argue over The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Dead Rising. The creeping pressure is quite the stress, and finding a balance that still pays off people’s potentially lengthy investment should they fail to meet certain actions in time is evidently not easy. Minit’s solution is right there in the name and it’s magic. Minit…

Who are we to argue?Koei Tecmo probably expects Warriors Orochi 4 to reach its target audience whenever it releases, but 16th October in North America and 19th October in Europe doesn’t necessarily seem like the best slot. That’s within days of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Battlefield V, and Red Dead Redemption 2.No doubt we’ll be able to coax a review out of resident weeb Robert Ramsey all the same. “Warriors Orochi 4 boasts a remarkable 170 playable characters from the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors universes – giving players an astounding number of options to choose from when…

The aftermath.We may be in the midst of the E3 2018 hangover, but the European PlayStation Store sleeps for no one. There’s a lot of content this week – even if it is of a lower profile.
