Reacting to the PS5 Announcement Stream!

If you’re like me, you recently watched the latest PS5 announcement stream. Admitted, I was busy editing and babysitting among other things to focus on every single game. However, if a game caught my interest I tried to pause what I was doing to check it out. Today, I am going to be discussing the 5 PS5 games revealed today or June 11th, not sure when Ill actually get this out. This means while Last of Us 2 is in my top 5 most anticipated PS5 games, it wont make this list in particular. 

Haven’t seen the video in question? Check it here!

Let’s go ahead and get the honorable mentions out of the way. There’s plenty and plenty of honorable mentions. In fact of the 26 or so games, well over 20 of them interested me. However, I am going to take a minute just to discuss a few. I’ll lead off with Horizon Zero Dawn West. What, PS5’s big system seller is only an honorable mention? Well, that’s mostly because I did not play the first one. I’m one of those people who tries to play the first one when available even if you dont have too. This is one reason I am not far into the Mass Effect or Dragon Age trilogies. I understand this game is going to be groundbreaking. I am sure I’ll get around to it. But for today, it is a spectacle I marvel at in the distance.

Next, Kena: Bridge of Spirits. This one did not catch my attention during the stream. Honestly, I mostly only learned about it recently. However, what I learned about it and from the few seconds I actually saw of it, it has me interested enough to keep up with it.

 

Lastly for mentions is Sackboy: A Big Adventure. This game from what I saw looks similar to New Super Lucky Tales. It looks like it might switch between 3D and 2D levels. Honestly, I am fan. Not sure its a 60 dollar title for me, but we will see.

 

Let’s get started with #5

#5 Astro’s Playroom. I don’t have a great bit to say. People are going to see this game made my top 5 and then they will see what games didn’t and they will be confused. But, simply put, this is my style of game. A nice, colorful 3D platformer. If it controls well, I will certainly be picking this up. If I get it day 1 or not depends entirely on price vs length of the game. It didn’t look like a 60 dollar game to me. Still, something I cannot wait to play.

 

#4 Death Loop

deathloop_01The set up is fine. As indicated by the name, you play a man stuck in a time loop. I’m not going to delve much into any one thing here with this top five, but its the gameplay not the story that really has me. This looks like Bioshock meets Dishonored. I am here for it.

 

#3 Resident Evill 8

Really, the only survival horror I even care about. I missed 7. So, I am not sure how dependent this one’s story will be on 7. Even though it looks like a prequel, the text leads me to believe it is set in the present. I could be wrong there. It also looks like it is building on the atmosphere and game play style of 7 from what I could tell.

 

#2 Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Considering the only PS4 game I’ve played is Spider-man, you can bet I am hyped for the sequel. Personally, I really loved the first one and I am big collector of comics, so this game is a no brainer for me. Insomniac is one of my favorite video game studios so this is a must pick up for me.

 

#1 Ratchet and Clank

Duh. This was easily the best looking game. Maybe not as epic in scale as Horizon Zero Dawn, but again, Insomniac are professionals. They have mastered the Ratchet and Clank games and I expect this to be a total return to form from the PS2 days. I have big hopes for this game. If I could only preorder one title, this would be it. I hope this is a launch title. I dont have much more too add. I think this game will be a slam dunk and easily be remembered as one of the better PS5 early games.

Well that’s it for me. Let me know what games you enjoyed discovering here recently. As always thanks for watching. Have a great day!

Reacting to my very first post “To all Potential Readers,”

I’m going to just copy and paste my very first post here so we can talk about it.

This is my very first post so this will be a run down of what content I will be putting out!

Also, I will be doing weekly Top Fives!
If this sounds like stuff you want to talk about and hear my opinions on be sure to check out often!

Okay, lets break it down.

I am going to be blogging on mostly what anime I am watching, what comic books I am reading, what video games I am playing.”

I would say I kept this part pretty faithful. Anime and manga reviews make up the bulk of my content. I’ve kept comic books off for the most part. I’ve talked about Pokemon and Zelda a good bit.

Here is a list of what anime’s I am watching and how far I am into them: Naruto(415), One Piece(170), Attack on Titan(Episode 27),Parasyte-The Maxim(24) Assassination Classroom(17), Death Parade(12) Is it Wrong to Try and Pick up Girls In A Dungeon(10),”

Okay,  so I have seen all of Naruto since making this post. One Piece, I am up to 300 and something. Attack on Titan, I am a few episodes into season 2. Parasyte only ran for 24 episodes if I remember right. Death Parade I think only ran for 12. I’m not sure I’ve seen anymore of Assassination Classroom. I think I finished season one of Is it Wrong to Try and Pick up Girls In A Dungeon. However many was that.

Since this post, I’ve watched Season One of My Hero Academia and Food Wars. Im on episode #10 of Tower of God. I’ve seen all of Girlish Number, The Devil is a Part Timer and Amagi Brilliant Park, loved all of them. I’ve seen up to about episode 4 of Dr. Stone. I’d love to revisit this one. I actually finished season 1 of Monster Musume oddly enough. Not sure if it got a 2nd season. Case Closed and Yu Yu Hakusho are two I’ve seen a lot of but I couldnt even tell you where I was on them. I’ve seen a handful of episode 1s that havent been brought up on the blog yet.

Games I currently Playing: Madden 15, Fallout New Vegas, Pokemon, Super Smash Bros, Majora Mask 3DS, Borderlands Pre-Sequel, Fable, Wind Waker(wiiU)”

So, I actually have restarted playing New Vegas but on PS3. Not with any consistency though. I still play Pokemon of course, but now I am up to Sword.

Here’s the games I am playing now: A Hat in Time, Yo Kai Watch (3DS), Super Mario Odyssey, DOOM (XBOX ONE), The Outer Worlds (XBOX ONE), Pokemon Sword, Shovel Knight (Wii U), Bloons Tower Defense 5 (Steam).

“Comics in 2015 I am reading: Aquaman and the Others(1-7) Lobo(1-5), Secret Wars(0-1), Convergence(0-5) Suicide Squad(3,5). I am mostly a 60’s-80’s kinda guy.”

A few things may jump out to you. A. Nothing really Marvel. I had Secret Wars 0-1. Not super impressive. Truth be told, aside from Daredevil and Ghost Rider, I don’t read a lot of Marvel anymore. One day I may try to read more of the new X-Men titles. B. This was all DC New 52 stuff. I love that era. I actually quickly fell out of New Comics shortly after this past. In fact, at the time, I don’t think I got another new comic until 2018 during DC’s Universe/Rebirth (Their modern iteration). I may go back an update this part with all my new comics later. I don’t have it written down and again, comics have never been a big part of this blog.

Okay, I am going to add a teaser part. Mangas. At the time of this post, I never really owned a manga that I didn’t get from my brother. It didn’t take long into the blogs life for me to rectify this problem. Here’s a list of the major manga’s I collect

Dragon Ball (3-1 editions of Volumes 1-18), Dragon Ball Z (3-1 editions of Volumes 1-6), My Hero Academia (Volume 1-13), Eden Zero (Volumes 1-5), Rave Master (Volumes 1, 3-4, 15-17), Samurai 8 The Tale of Hachimaru (Volumes 1 and 2. Current up to this point). I’ll go more in depth about my manga collection later, but these are the ones I really care about.

Also, I will be doing weekly Top Fives!
If this sounds like stuff you want to talk about and hear my opinions on be sure to check out often!

Top Fives are the longest running topic on the blog! It got started with top 5 Pokemons, than top 5 reasons to own a Wii U, and then 5 things I want from E3. I just put out one like last week or so talking about Mario levels. Later this week, I will be revisiting my original top fives. Safe to say this might be my favorite section but they are thought provoking.

Well, thats it for today. I might revisit this post over the next few days an add more as I reflect on my five years here. That’s if I get the time. I have been surprising busy this week. I might just leave it as it is. Just depends how I feel I suppose.

As always, thanks some much for reading. You can read the original on its original page here.
