I mean, it plays EXACTLY like a Pokémon game except there's tons of other people around you too lol... it's definitely something worth checking out though, if only out of curiosity :P 

Possibly a PS+ game for me to check.

Same,good pokemonlike games are very rare so i really like to support these indiedevs with their succesfull kickstarter project.

And yeah i'm satisfied with this state of play, i got what Sony told me to expect and more.

Cmon are we really giving sony a pass for this i remember microsoft got criticism for their 3rd party showing on their first xbox series x game showing. We seriously can't be bias now

There's no bias. Sony said it would be PS4 focused, not heavy on PS5 news, and it actually showed gameplay! It was exactly what it promised and needed to be, even if none of the announcements got me super excited. I'd personally rate it a 5 or 6 outta 10, but I'll defend it regardless. 

Why does everything have to be us vs them with some people? Believe it or not, MOST people don't actually give a shit about the console wars. MOST people don't go into something like this with a "it's not MY brand so I'mma hate it" or "I'm going to immediately compare it favourably to that other shitty presentation" mentality. Instead of this bias-based conspiracy theory, why can't it just be that...this presentation was objectively better and more in line with what it promised than an Xbox Series X showcase that did nothing to showcase gameplay on the Xbox Series X like it promised?

I'm very much a fan of Playstation, and was fully aware of the show promises and didn't had expectations about it. Still I gave it a 4 and just as you would still defend it from criticism that is wrong.

Yeah i agree,it's a thing on the internet.(and i often find it entertaining to see how over the top people can be about a product)

As long that they do not start spewing insults at eachother i find it to be pretty harmless but i must confess that this behaviour gets me irritated when it is surrounding other more important topics.



Around the Network

Crash Bandicoot: IT's about Time - If not for the fact that I refuse to give Activision my money (Seriously, I'm so sick of their disgusting policies), I'd be 100% sold on this. It looks fantastic and a wonderful addition to the already great N-Sane Trilogy. 8/10

Hitman III - personally I couldn't give less of a shit about this. 1/10

Braid Anniversary Edition - sure. Looks cute. I remember enjoying the game. Love the improvements. 6/10

The Pathless - Knew nothing about this game going in, now it's a game I genuinely must have in my collection. Looks fun, love the world design and gameplay, and the marketing here was on point. 8/10

Spelunky 2 - Personally never got into the first game but this looks like a respectable followup for those interested. Neutral 5/10

Genshin Impact - It looks like Breath of the Wild for Weeaboos....and I fully approve this message. Looks like fun, definitely a game I'll keep my eye on. 7/10

Aeon Must die - I didn't decipher any of the trailer to know or care about it. X/10

Anno Mutationen - Looks....passable. Even though it looks fine, something about it is rubbing me the wrong way. 3/10

Bugsnax - My first impression was mildly positive. But now, I dunno, this looks too weird for me. I guess I shoulda expected it given the developer, but I'm not interested. 4/10

Vader Immortal - Looks like what the Star Wars kinect SHOULD have been. I don't have VR so I can't get this, but if I could...8/10!

Control: AWE - Haven't played Control but this looks like a good expansion. 6/10

AutoChess - Ew. Everything about this turned me off. 1/10

The Pedestrian - I saw Jacksepticeye play this a while back and loved it. Brilliant puzzle platformer. 7/10

Hood: Outlaws and Legends - Sure. this is a thing. I get a very 'ubisoft attempts a squad-based combat game' vibe. Not bad or anything, but I have no further feelings. 5/10

TemTem - My initial thoughts involved gaging and trying to douse myself in eyebleach, but the more I read into it, the more cautiously optimistic I became. But, like, seriously, it looks like a shitty DS Shovelware carbon copy of Pokemon....still, I'll remain neutral for now. 5/10

GodFall - Honestly, this game LOOKS gorgeous. The art direction is so brilliant and it reminds me a lot of God of War 2018 (which is a GREAT game to emulate). that said, the gameplay looks pretty boring and repetitive despite the length of time spent on explaining two of the six combat styles. I figure this would be fun as hell to play co-op with friends, but an absolute slog solo. I might be an outlier here but I'm going to give it a tentatively positive 6/10 if only for the co-op.

Bolded: I'm in the same boat,that game really speaks to me and crash bandicoot was always one of my most beloved series but i do not want to support activision/blizzard no more,same with EA and i do not think i will buy Ubisoft future games either.

They said there will be no MTX, and perhaps no DLC as well.

Hitman III - personally I couldn't give less of a shit about this. 1/10

Well the VR is a bonus, and it didn`t look bad for a VR game.
Braid Anniversary Edition - sure. Looks cute. I remember enjoying the game. Love the improvements. 6/10

Visual Novel aesthetic, seemed good enough for me.
Aeon Must die - I didn't decipher any of the trailer to know or care about it. X/10

Anno Mutationen - Looks....passable. Even though it looks fine, something about it is rubbing me the wrong way. 3/10

Vader Immortal - Looks like what the Star Wars kinect SHOULD have been. I don't have VR so I can't get this, but if I could...8/10!

Didn`t seem a good game for me, and I do like VR.

Control: AWE - Haven't played Control but this looks like a good expansion. 6/10

AutoChess - Ew. Everything about this turned me off. 1/10

The Pedestrian - I saw Jacksepticeye play this a while back and loved it. Brilliant puzzle platformer. 7/10

Seemed quite interesting to me, but then we need gameplay to evaluate properly.

Was what I thought, but then some other users said it is quite good on PC.

GodFall - Honestly, this game LOOKS gorgeous. The art direction is so brilliant and it reminds me a lot of God of War 2018 (which is a GREAT game to emulate). that said, the gameplay looks pretty boring and repetitive despite the length of time spent on explaining two of the six combat styles.

I was quite unimpressed by this game since the first announcement, but the gameplay video made me think it is possibly a good game. And perhaps it is as deep as they said in the presentation, it seemed to have a lot of potential and variety, but only playing to know.

Quick note: Just becuase they claim Crash Bandicoot It's About Time won't have microtransactions doesn't mean it won't. There are plenty of times this company has said the same thing (Them and EA both) and lied about it by later integrating it into the game. And, regardless of whether or not Crash has them, the company still goes full-bore on Microtransactions and lootboxes in other games and perpetuate so many shitty business practices that I don't want to give them ANY of my money regardless of whether or not their bad practices apply here. They've been so bad in so many categories for so long that they need to do a LOT of work to get my trust back and I just don't know if that's possible anymore.

and seriously Fuck Bobby Kotick.



For me the show quenched my thirst until the next one. I watch all the conferences each year by all companies. With the year being the way it is and the anticipation of the new hardware about to be released, I'll take all the shows I can get. I don't expect to have my socks blown off each time but I appreciate it none the less. I get hyped for the whole process and I'm really looking forward to the new generation.
