E3 2017 – A Way Out Preview – Work or Die Together (PS4)

Electronic Arts (EA) is known for getting behind massive franchises. Madden, FIFA, NBA Live, Battlefield, Star Wars…The list of huge games goes on for a while when you’re talking about EA. Yet as we’ve seen in the past few years, EA does appreciate the indie scene. Games like Unravel charmed audiences around the world, and the publisher now has a program called EA Originals to help foster some more growth in the indie space. The newly-revealed game A Way Out was shown at this year’s EA PLAY, and we were able to take a sneak peek once we were away from all the hype of the event. Co-Op ONLY As we sat in a temporary office in the back of EA’s PLAY event with Director Josef Fares, it was funny taking in fellow journalists’ reactions to A Way Out. Josef spoke with confidence about his new game, bolstered perhaps by the reaction he had already received at EA’s press conference a few days ago, and the success of his previous game, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Or maybe it was the $3.7 million EA handed over to him and his team at Hazelight Studios while still retaining complete READ…

Ridley Scott: There Could Be More Blade Runner Sequels

The director of the sci-fi classic looks back at the original for its 35th anniversary while also preparing for Blade Runner 2049 — and beyond. By Scott Collura This coming Monday will mark 35 years since the sci-fi classic Blade Runner was released. The date was June 25, 1982, and of course the genre was changed forever from then on, as director Ridley Scott and star Harrison Ford took us on a journey to the beautiful yet terrifying world of Los Angeles, 2019 — a world of Replicants and futuristic private dicks and cold fish (though in the latter case, only in the theatrical cut!). And now we’ll soon be returning to that world when Blade Runner 2049 is released this fall. To celebrate the anniversary of the original film as well as the upcoming sequel, I recently spoke to Ridley Scott about the legacy of Blade Runner and where he hopes to take the series in 2049 — including his confirmation that there could be more sequels beyond that film. Ford returns in the film as former Blade Runner Rick Deckard, with Ryan Gosling also starring as Officer K, and Scott executive-producing while Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) directs. But READ…

E3 2017 – Bravo Team Preview – Time Crisis (PSVR)

[embedded content] One of my favorite arcade games to feed quarters into has always been Time Crisis. Picking up that lightgun and stepping on the pedal to peek out of cover was a thrill, moving through the level and shooting every bad guy that wanted to shoot back. Virtual reality has desperately been awaiting its own iteration of the arcade classic, and while Bravo Team may not wear the Time Crisis branding, it’s got the same kind of style that could make it an ample replacement. Holding down the L1 button will pop you up out of cover to better see and fire at the oncoming enemies, just like the pedal in Time Crisis allowed you to do. The benefit of VR is that you can still blind fire the Aim controller and peak around corners using your head. The demo was a pretty simple scenario, pushing slowly forward on a bombed out bridge, hiding among wrecked and burning vehicles. Another journalist sat at the station adjacent to me as we played co-op, and coordinating our attack was imperative in making sure we made it through. Enemy AI seemed to be pretty intelligent, attempting to flank and using cover smartly. Our positioning…

E3 2017 – Outcast Second Contact Preview – Other Worlds (PS4)

[embedded content] You wouldn’t be alone if you said you’d never heard of Outcast. It was a title I missed in that era. This was a wildly acclaimed game from 1999 that used an engine considered to be revolutionary at the time. It touted some of the most complex world to world interactions, particle effects, and AI. Outcast required a pretty high-end system to even run, so it ended up being a commercial failure. These advanced systems actually fit right in with our modern gaming now though, so a remake of Outcast makes a lot of sense, given the popularity of modern releases of classic games. Outcast Second Contact is an entirely fresh remake, built on the framework of the original, with a hero that looks like a retro-futuristic version of Nathan Drake. Aside from updating the graphics and tweaking a few things to live in 2017 better than it did in ’99, Outcast Second Contact is the same game that released back then, giving a whole new audience a chance to relive — or live for the first time — the title that received high praise from gaming publications. Check out the trailer above to see the side by side comparisons…

Ever Oasis: The Kotaku Review

The sad decline of the Mana series has been difficult to watch, and it’s equally unfortunate that its spiritual successor Ever Oasis suffers from similar problems—solid action RPG mechanics and moments of creative brilliance hampered by an experimental gameplay structure that drags everything down with it. Ever Oasis is the latest 3DS collaboration between Nintendo and development studio Grezzo, which also created the remakes of Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask for Nintendo’s portable. Grezzo’s president is Koichi Ishii, who created the Mana series at Square, then produced the series until his 2007 departure. So it’s not too surprising that Grezzo’s first big 3DS adventure is pretty damned Mana-like, for better or worse. In one sense, it’s a fairly formal action role-playing game: Venture out into the world, find cute creatures, and hack and slash them to death. Your chances of victory in these battles is determined somewhat by your skill at twitch action but mostly by grinding, leveling up, and finding better equipment. The game’s two major phases are dungeon hacking (L) and oasis-building (R). Here’s the twist: Kind of like Majora’s Mask, the game’s world is centered on a single hub town, the eponymous oasis, which serves as…
