Sony pulls cheap Platinum Trophy game from PSN

gamer_god__playstation_by_molonara-d4mctft

Sony quickly pulled the indie game, titled ★★★★★ 1000 Top Rated, which was met with heavy hatred from all members of the gaming community. The title was basically a cheap simple slideshow puzzle game, that had no real challenge, and existed to give players a cheap Platinum Trophy. The game has been removed, but will be added back and patched with no Platinum, at least it was 99 cents. A similar game called “My Name is Mayo” released last year. Where you can get a Platinum by pressing the X button 10,000 times, and that has not been removed as of yet.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Delayed into April 2016

uncharted-4-a-thiefs-end

Naughty Dog’s upcoming PS4-exclusive sequel has been delayed and will now launch a little over a month later on April 26, 2016. A post up on the PlayStation blog confirms the new release date, with  Creative Director Neil Druckmann, and Game Director Bruce Straley, stating that they need just a bit more time to polish the game.

This is our largest Uncharted game to date, and the team has been working incredibly hard to meet the challenge of closing out the game’s development in a timely manner. However, as we approached our final deadlines and started wrapping up the game’s levels, we realized that several key sequences needed extra resources to bring them to the finish line. After carefully considering all of our options, we decided to extend our schedule, making sure that we get a few more polish passes before submitting our gold master (the final disc for manufacturing).

The two offered their sincere apologies to the many fans who are eagerly waiting to experience Nathan Drake’s final adventure.

“Pushing the date is not an easy choice, and we wouldn’t do it if we didn’t feel in our hearts it’s the best course of action for the game. To you, our loyal fans, we hope you’ll accept our sincere apology. We know many of you have been waiting patiently for Nathan Drake’s final chapter, and now we humbly ask you to wait a bit longer.”

Yesterday developer Quantic Dream revealed that the remastered version of Beyond: Two Souls will be available to download for the PS4 next Tuesday. The PS4 version will feature some improvements on top of features requested by the fans.

Beyond: Two Souls PS4 improvements:

  • Enhanced 1080p graphics including motion blur, bloom and depth of field effects, as well as improved lighting and shadows. The game also makes use of the DualShock 4 speaker to improve immersion when playing as the Entity.
  • Decisions are highlighted at the end of each scene and compared with those made by other players.
  • You can now play the game in chronological order right from the start – a much requested feature in the PS3 version!
  • Increased difficulty in certain fight scene, combined with improved controls for action sequences.
  • Includes the “Enhanced Experiments” DLC.

Players will have another chance to experience the story of Jodie Holmes (played, excellently, by Ellen Page), a young woman who possesses supernatural powers through her psychic link to an invisible entity. Holmes’ journey is intertwined with the complex Dr. Dawkins (brought to life by the inimitable Willem Dafoe), on PS4.

The PS4 remaster of Heavy Rain has also been confirmed for a digital release on March 1, 2016. While Europe and the UK will receive a physical collection of both games — on March 2nd and 4th respectively, it looks as though NA won’t.

Until Dawn Review

Until Dawn

Until Dawn is a multiple ending game developed by Supermassive Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It follows a group of friends vacationing at a mountain lodge in the midst of winter, who’ve come together on the one year anniversary of a tragedy, in hopes of gaining closure and remembering the lost.

From the very first decision made by the player, ripples are sent forth that change the story ahead of you. Do you snoop or respect the privacy of others? Do you approach a situation with aggression or do you try to diffuse it? Do you lie to protect someone or let them face the cold truth? All of these decisions present themselves within the first episode and only get tougher with progression. Each character is presented in a different light ranging from the do-gooder clowns to the dark hearted snobs and these impressions, if the player is easily manipulated, can lead to biased decisions.

Throughout the game, you are momentarily removed from story for brief “sessions” with a therapist. Here, you are asked questions specific to yourself concerning fears, empathy or lack thereof for others and the ability to distinguish between reality and hallucinations. Depending on your answers, the environment in which these sessions take place are modified to your displeasure or for those with more morbid tendencies, your great enjoyment.

Until-Dawn4

Until Dawn has a movie like quality to it, thanks to its amazing graphics featuring spot on renditions of the actors voicing each role. If left idle for a short time the screen closes in on the current character and you can read the stress and uneasiness they’re experiencing in every facial tick and wince. The snowy landscape is quite beautiful in the dark and mysterious way, once described as a “winter wonderland”. Moving along the mountain paths creates soon to be filled in footprints accompanied by the audible crunch of snow, howling wind and various animal sounds. Whether it’s walking across the property on a snow covered tree lined path or exploring the bowels of the lodge, there is always a feeling of eerie discomfort. That maybe you aren’t alone. Did that door just close on its own? Is some raging beast going to leap from the tree line and shred this poor soul? What was that hellish screeching sound? WHERE IS EVERYONE?!

Scattered across each environment are a series of clues pertaining to Hannah and Beth (the missing sisters), the truth about events that occurred at the asylum also located on the mountain in 1952, the mystery man identified in wanted posters whose last known whereabouts were on the mountain and five totem poles. Each of these poles are a different color and are broken into six pieces. The colors are black, yellow, brown, red and white, which represents death, guidance, loss, danger and fortune respectively. When examined each totem gives a vision of a possible future outcome and once all of them are put together, they reveal the true history of the mountain and the tragic situation the sisters found themselves in. There is also a butterfly effect feature that shows what decision lead to a certain action and a character meter showing how your current vessel feels about the others.

Final Verdict:

This game was very entertaining in its story telling and had amazing character development. Not once was I ever bored, though I did lose patience with some characters and found myself vowing to punish them. There were times I was left speechless when characters I wasn’t currently playing with decided to sacrifice another character due to a decision made several episodes ago. What felt like the right decision at the time could result in dire consequences later on. I highly recommend this game. I have and plan to continue playing to experience all the twists it has to offer.
