Big Games I'm not sure I'll(and others) will like.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Big Games I'm not sure I'll(and others) will like.

1. Heavy Rain  -  this game looks brilliant and very interesting for a number of reasons, and I've been excited about it for a while now, but two things have been nagging at me about it.First the story, not saying it looks bad but it looks in movie terms to be a serious dark serial killer thriller/drama. As a film I probably wouldn't get into it, and escpecially if I was stuck in this world for 12+ hours, so as a game I'm not sure I'm thrilled about this.Secondly the quick time events, most people don't love them and I'm okay with them as long as they're forgiving and not over used, but every video of this game makes it look like one giant quick time event.

Verdict: So I'm still interested but I'm a little leary. Will be reading reviews before buy.(Would like to see one of those 10 minute videos of someone playing)

 

2. Halo : Reach - Lately Call of Duty and Battlefield has really made me depend on ironsights aiming, I also love setting up classes too, and picking my own weapons/perks.  Halo has this old school formula about it, and ODST failed to add anything new to the mix, despite how awesome everyone says Reach will be I've yet to hear what new elements will be added to the multiplayer formula, and I'm afraid there won't be any, I'm thinking it will stick to what is safe for the hardcore fans.

Verdit: Waiting to here how new/different multiplayer will be, but I have a feeling I'll be dissapointed on that end.

 

3. Alan Wake: another game that looks amazing but the gameplay still looks  sort of odd, I'm not sure how I'll like the whole light them up then shoot them gameplay, plus I'm not a major fan of dark scary games, I was hoping for something more like Max Payne in it's vibe and setting. I know there is supposed to be daytime scenes that seem to play like more of an adventure game, that they haven't showed much.

Verdict: Holding out till I find out more.

That's it for now comment and list yours!

Metroid Other M - Looks amazing so far... but I'm very scared it'll have an obscene number of cutscenes and way too much story and become a story driven game... metroid always is about huge worlds and gameplay, not corridors that lead to the next movie! In nintendo we trust, team ninja... not so much!

Dragon Quest IX - Played recently VII (to me it kinda sucked, and i just realized that 100 hours in lol) and VIII, I'm thinking this is not one of my favorite series anymore. Is it me that changed, or the game... well, I'll buy it but I'm thinking i'm not getting as much fun as before.

Final Fantasy XIII - Seven was great. X, not so much... If this is a mix between the two, it better have more VII than X in that blend!



Heavy Rain will be an experience... not a game. I just want to see what it is like, I am not expecting it to be the greatest game ever, but it will certainly be interesting



This almost looks like stealth bashing of the X360 since you added two X360 games but just one from Sony (which isn't even really a "Big" game), knowing that both X360 games will easily get +90% on Metacritic.

just as a note on Metroid. Nitendo is heavily involved in developing the game (Nintendo + Team Ninja). Nintendo won't let their franchises be developed by others without having a representative there to make sure the game fits within the IP world. So I doubt Metroid willl leave the huge worlds with lots of exploration behind, but we could see an increase in combat which could turn out really well. Not that the there isn't reason for concern, considering we don't know anything about the game.

@slimebeats

Heavy Rain is extremely hyped on this website, so not calling it "big" seems just wrong. Also, we don't know that Alan Wake will get +90, unless we know that Heavy Rain will get +90.




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

Slimebeast: I'm not bashing the 360, I LOVE my 360, in fact I'm positive Mass Effect 2 will be my all time favorite game when it comes out, not to mention Fable III and Splinter Cell. I own all the systems though. I was going to add another PS3 game to make it even but I couldn't figure out which, I thought of putting GOWIII on there, but that's only because I don't like GOW to begin with not because I'm unsure of how it's going to come out. Plus this isn't meant to bash these games I could and hope I will go on to love all three of these games.



Check this out fooflex: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/105/1058471p1.html

It's called Hypebusters and I ran into it yestarday on ign. Nice article on what to expect in Heavy Rain all the while not giving away any spoilers. Anyone else interested can check it out as well if they hesitant on Heavy Rain as well.



Final Fantasy XIII - I've played all the post-SNES FF's and most of the ones before too. I pretty much grew up on the 3 PS1 FF's as a child and it's a franchise close to my heart. I'm just iffy on whether I'll be able to cope with what is supposedly ALOT of cut-scenes, as this totally put me off MGS4.

The difference is I had absolutely no ****ing clue what was happening in MGS4, but FFXIII story will hopefully be a bit more... coherent. We'll see, I don't think I'm opposed to cut-scenes mind you.

Zelda Wii - Yeah I know we know nothing about this, but I absolutely love Zelda and have played every game in the series (Except Spirit Tracks yet). Its a combination that I'm just getting jaded from Zelda, with the games really not progressing much on their basic core from the NES days. Also I found Phantom Hourglass to be poo - I guess that's the main reason I'm struggling for hype.

I'm sure it'll be okay once we get some trailers and stuff, just at the moment I'm not sure I could cope with another Zelda game that plays exactly like the other 13 I've played >_>.

Heavy Rain - It's my anti-cut scene fears coming in again. It's odd though, the game has me intriguied but I'm not sure I'll be able to stand 12 hours of it. Doubt I'll dare combine this with FFXIII anyway so will probably give it a miss :/.

That's all I could really think of, I'm quite excited for most games this year to be honest. Splendid.

I don't think XIII is that cut scene heavy, especially given its length. In Heavy Rain you are always in control



Interesting Lists.

At any rate.

Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver - I love the original, to death, but I'm almost 99% sure it will underwhelm me in one way, shape or form. It makes me think of FireRed/LeafGreen which pretty much felt like they were selling nostalgia rather than a new game. I suppose that's what a remake is. I love Red and Blue but their age becomes quite apparent after playing games like Pokémon Emerald and Platinum.
