Insomniac Games has been known to produce some wildly imaginative and creative games: Resistance and Ratchet & Clank, among other series. Insomniac have partnered with Electronic Arts to release their first multiplatform game for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. For some this would mark the first time playing anything from such an accomplished studio, while others would already know the level of games that have been released in the past. But would this mean that their latest release, Fuse, would be met at such a level of quality?
How do you challenge yourself to create a near perfect game?
In 2007, Ken Levine and Irrational Games were given near perfect praise for their game BioShock. The setting of the underwater city of Rapture and its inhabitants told a perfect tale of a man-made dystopia that showed the evil (virtual) man was capable of given powers that would pollute their mind. Even more, it showed that video games could also be considered on such a level as books and movies in the terms of modern storytelling. So when their latest game, BioShock Infinite, was released expectations were primarily high. Would the developer be able to bring another game as memorable and accepted as their game released years ago?
Sony has continued their trend with the releasing a brand new headset in the Sony Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset. While last year’s model of the PlayStation Wireless Stereo Headset is available with the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $99.99 and its impressive features, some could wonder what would justify the additional fifty dollars added to the price tag (MSRP $149.99) or simply upgrade to get the new model just released. Well, looks can be deceiving because with its new features, this new model serves as a better version of what was released a year ago.
E3 is here once again, and with two of the Big 3 doing their conferences on Monday, it was Sony’s turn to unveil what they had to say for their press conference this year.
Anyone who has ever told you that video games cannot be considered art, needs to experience one of the beautiful games from Thatgamecompany. Their unique way of designing and creating games serves as a reminder that you don’t need to follow what everyone else is doing to get the most out of creativity. With already past games such as Cloud, flOw and Flower available for everyone to try; Thatgamecompany has released their latest offering in Journey, exclusively for the PlayStation 3. And what has been released is, I am glad to say, a visually stunning, and expressing release that wholeheartedly lives up to the terrific collection of games Thatgamecompany is already known for.
