Earlier in the week, we listed off 188.6 reasons to buy The Order. While that may sound like a staggering amount, it actually just scratched the surface of the myriad of reasons to pick up the PS4’s first big exclusive of 2015. There’s so many reasons, in fact, that we decided to devote another article to them.
This might sound really ignorant & I apologize for that
But when I get Until Dawn, I’m making it my personal mission to keep the blonde girl, black guy, & Asian girl alive because those are the main three types of people who die first in horror movies. gonna defy those status quo’s.
It makes me so upset to say it. It really does. Just like film director Guillermo del Toro said over the weekend, “It’s not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart.”
Konami have officially announced that we can say bye-bye to seeing the PS4-exclusive horror game Silent Hills.
Originally revealed through P.T., a playable teaser (which if you haven’t downloaded, go DO IT RIGHT NOW. You have until Wednesday April 29th before they pull the plug on it.), Silent Hills is the highly anticipated collaboration between Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima and one of my most favorite film directors Guillermo del Toro, also featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus.
The recent rumors about rocky relationships between Konami and Kojima had fans speculating that the game wouldn’t happen, and it turns out they were right. Konami has officially stated:
“Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic ‘Silent Hills’ project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued. In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further announcements.”
What a damn SHAME! Hopefully they can pull something off soon, because that demo was something great. That sink fetus! AHHH! Seriously though, that thing creeps me out.
Now that it’s the week of February 16, there’s likely only one thing on gamer’s minds: how many part-time jobs will I have to get to support my time with Evolve? Oh, and we suppose there is that little matter of the biggest PS4 exclusive launch since inFamous: Second Son almost a year ago. That’s right, after years of anticipation, The Order: 1886 will finally be hitting store shelves this Friday. But with so many big titles on the horizon, is it a game that deserves your hard-earned money? We’ve decided to find nearly two hundred reasons why it certainly is.
Sony Saturday: The Order: 1886
This will probably be the best looking and best exclusive on the PS4. From art to the concepts for the game this is definitely on my radar for The Game of The Year. I can’t wait for this to be released!
The Good: - The Story and Characters. - Visually Stunning. - Gun play and Blackwater. - Realistic damage infliction. - Two awesome Sony Easter eggs.
The Bad: - No Collectables Counter/statistic. - Stealth sections are very unforgiving.
The Mixed: - QTE’s are used a lot at the start as a tutorial but become fairly far apart as the game progresses, or reserved for boss fights. I don’t think they were as bad as reviewers made them to be. - The trophies are mainly kill X with Y number times, no story or difficulty related ones. - Trailer is a little misleading, I wouldn’t call this an action game, more of a thriller.
Verdict: - Did I like it, yes and I’ll be playing it again. Do I recommend it, not to everyone no. If you want to check this out do not expect an Uncharted level of action, but you will get an interesting alternate history. - Paid $79 and finished in 7 hours taking my time. - I can see this being like the first Uncharted where the sequel (it’s open for one) will be a little more polished in areas.
Sony secured themselves a great exclusive with this game. I remember back when people were calling the Versus rumor bs, but not it turned out to be true. Anyway looks like a way more action packed Final Fantasy game. I’m totally in.
