Shadow of the Colossus Remake [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Shadow of the Colossus is a classic title that is important to the history of video games. It is a warm memory, cherished by a vast majority of games that were around for its initial release. Unfortunately, the controls and mechanics should have been more of a vocus for the re-development of the game rather than the visualization of it.

The Pros: 

+Stunning graphics
+Awe-inspiring scale
+Beautiful soundtrack and story-telling

The Cons: 

-Extremely dated controls
-Wholly out-dated play mechanics
-No update on the world/level design to account for the new hardware Rating : 

I think if you asked the majority for their top ten of all time, most people would have Shadow of the Colossus somewhere on the list. In fact, I'm inclined to say that it'd be on mine. It was an innovative title that broke new ground in terms of what a game could be, not only in scale as the Colossi, who were something we'd not really experienced up to that point, but in story telling and over all game design.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Set To Receive Two DLC Characters

The character driven brawler that is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is set to drop next week with an impressive roster of both old and new favorites.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Final Boss Revealed + Intro Video

Sony may not be doing their best to promote PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale considering the game comes out in less than two weeks, but such a thing ultimately won’t have an effect on the overall quality of the product.  Debates about the similarities between PS All-Stars and the Smash Bros. franchise will likely continue until the planet Earth is invaded by aliens or suddenly goes boom, but the team at SuperBot Entertainment have done something that will likely please everyone who has been a PlayStation fan since day 1.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection Is Finally Given A Release Date

Today may just have started off as another boring if not depressing Wednesday (it has for me at least) but some news has been announced which ought to brighten up our day: Zone of the Enders HD Collection has a release date.  Ever since the ZOE HD Collection was revealed at E3 last year gamers, Kojima Productions fans, and mech enthusiasts have been clamoring as to when they’ll be able to experience the two underrated games once again.

Fresh Images From The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection

Whether or not the sudden surge in developers creating HD collections of old games is a sign of a lack of imagination is yet to be seen.  So far we haven’t seen too many publishers jump on the HD remix/collection bandwagon and the titles released thus far have mostly been for games people care about such as Tomb Raider or God of War.  Sure, seeing a company release a HD collection may be a way for a few easy bucks to be made but in the case of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection I don’t think people really care as long as the games are good and faithful to the originals.

At the end of August Sony announced that the first two God of War games would be re-released in glorious HD in the God of War Collection.  The news that we would be able to experience the first two amazing games again with improved graphics and Trophy support got a lot of people hyped up for the project but it was a slight bummer that no media was released for the game.  We all know that the God of War games looked extremely sharp but most people were interested to see how the game would look on the PS3 and what improvements, if any, would be made to the visuals.
