So I guess the VGAs were this weekend. I had no idea. I tend to tune that stuff out, not because I’m morally opposed to them or because I think it represents the selling out of games. Marketers gonna market. I just don’t need to spend my evening taking part in it when I can watch all of the trailers in the following days.
Speaking of trailers, there was some interesting stuff shown. The above BioShock Infinite trailer has some people complaining about the frame rate and all of the shooting, but mostly it has me excited over the prospect of stabbing a crazed pig man with my skyline, arm hook thingy. I will say that I called the game not making their February release date some time ago. Yes, I am that good.
Next up is the trailer for Last of Us which looks like the shizzle fo’ rizzle. The game looks great, as do the character animations, but best of all, W. Earl Brown, Dan Doherty of “Deadwood” fame, does a voice in the game. I do so love me some W. Earl Brown.
Bill should be thrilled about Dark Souls 2, provided we can ever get him back to playing video games. I’m most impressed that it took 90 seconds for the trailer’s main character to die. For Dark Souls, that’s like a whole lifetime.
I have no idea what The Phantom Pain is about, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never played a game that focused on an amputee desperately escaping a hospital as his fellow patients are slaughtered around him.
Gears of War: Judgement looks like Gears of War. Take that as you may.
I have no idea if South Park: The Stick of Truth will be any good, but I laughed a bunch during the trailer. Yes, I am that juvenile.
Looks like this current generation of hardware still has some good stuff to deliver, a good thing seeing how we’ll be stuck with it for another year.
