PS4 conference Breakdown Part 8:Summery

Hi guys
As you may have seen from the title, I have come to the end of my PS4 summery. There were more games announced but I have covered the ones that I am very excited for. As of me posting this there is no official announcement of the release date for the console, all we know is that it will launch in Fall 2013(Autumn/early winter for UK guys), but that is all we know for now. There have been rumours that the PS4 will get another exclusive event when more details will be shown in May, but that is just rumour for now. We also have no word yet on the price of the console, my opinion is that it will be sold for around £300-£350. I am certain in my assumption that we will be getting many more details at E3 2013 which is being held in LA in early June. That's all for now I would like to thank you all for the immense support of my PS4 breakdown, I hope you have enjoyed reading them as much as I have enjoyed making them. If there is a specific game you would like to see announced for the PS4 leave it in the comments bellow.

Where could it go next? Mass Effect

Hi guys
Before I get into this I would just like to say that I will be talking about the ending of Mass Effect 3 but I won't be naming any specifics.
   Ok, as you will know if you have played ME3 the graphics look amazing, as do the faces. One of the things I would like to see in ME4 is better lip syncning, I'm not saying it was bad in ME3 but it did pull you out of the experience on a few occasions. The mission list is also a quite confusing thing for me, I get what the missions are and all that, but if I went of and did some side missions I forgot what the main story line mission was. As you may be able to imagine this was quite a pain, but only a small thing. Although nothing forced you  to just to the missions the environments weren't big enough, or interesting enough to warrent a really good look around inbetween missions.
   As you will know if you have read my Mass Effect 3 review you will know my biggest problem with the game was the fact that time was a big factor in the game. If you went of and did a few side quests inbetween missions you were penilised for not dealing with a situation quick enough. You are given a chance to do any side quests you want near the end but it is not made clear enough.
    Another thing I would like to see implimented in ME4 is the lack of need to play the multiplayer to get a better ending in the single player. I personally really enjoyed the multiplayer but since finishing the campaign, I haven't been back to the multiplayer. Also so many people didn't like the need to play the multiplayer. The only saving grace is that it was a very good, glich free multiplayer.
     The last thing I would like to see included in ME4 is a better ending. I won't name specifics but there are certain events that are set in stone. After all the decisions you make certain things will still happen. I don't know if this is possible but I would like the introduction of a random ending engine included. So it takes bits of pre-recorded speech and pegs them together to make a unique ending. Like I say I don't know if that is possible but it would be quite nice. One thing I will say on the engine is that ME4 has been confirmed as being made with the Frostbite 3 engine, which is what BF4 is being made on. Does this mean that we will get the introduction of destructible environments is ME4 how would you feel about that? When I post this post I will put a poll on the blog asking whether you think it would be a good introduction into the series.
I hope you have enjoyed reading, see you soon

PS4 Conference Breakdown Part 7: Destiny

Hi guys
We already new about this game before the PS4 conference but we didn't know that it would be coming to the PS4 as well as PS3 and Xbox 360. If you haven't already seen the trailer from the conference here it is:

Let me give you some more info on this game if you don't already know it, it will be an FPS MMO, it will be set in the future and it is being made by the creators of Halo, Bungie. If you your PS3 from your Xbox 360 you will know that Halo and Bungie are-or were- and Xbox exclusive company, even the fact that they turned up to the PS4 press conference is pretty impressive. I also know that this game will feature competitive multiplayer aswell as the traditional MMO gameplay. We don't yet know if the competetive is simply a PvP area or something more complex like TDM and the like. One interesting part of this game is the fact that the music is being written and composed by three people one of whom is Sir Paul Mccartney This game has the potential to be amazing, and I am eagerly awaiting its release later this year on PS3 and PS4. Bungie have side-stepped all questions about if PS3 players will be able to interact with PS4 players.
Thats all for now, thanks for reading.

PS4 Conference Breakdown Part 6: Killzone Shadow Fall

Hi guys
I'm sure you have seen by now that Killzone Shadow Fall will be storming it's way into your living room through you PS4. Shadow Fall seems to becoming the flagship game for PS4, possibly because of the amazing demo they gave at the conference. It was one of the first games to be demoed after the announcement of the PS4 so naturally it had to be good, and by god it was good. If you haven't seen it here it is; for your amazement I give you Killzone Shadow Fall:
This was one of the few games which we saw actual gameplay footage, no trailers were seen for this game, it was just pure gameplay. As you can see above pretty stunning gameplay, it shows of what the PS4 can do. As you will know if you have played Killzone 3 the games are stunning in the looks department, and Shadow Fall looks to be raising the bar 10 fold. Personally I have never played any of the Killzone games but the story looks to be a very good one. We don't know if this game will be a launch title or if they were just showing of some nice explosions, I'm sure the closer we get the more solid details we will get. My humble opinion is that this game will feature heavily at E3 2013, so look out for my coverage of that.
Thats all for now thanks for reading.
