Here are 10 PS4 games that may improve your collection or drive you to buy a console.

The PlayStation 4 is full of great games. If you needed a reason to buy a PS4 in the future or are looking for games that won’t appear on the Xbox One, look no further. As for consoles, these are 10 games that will only show up on the PS4 (unless they end up timed exclusives).

No Man’s Sky

Release Date: TBA 2015

No Man's Sky screenshot

No Man’s Sky promises to be a huge game that will have players exploring an almost unlimited number of planets. The game features an open-universe that will be procedurally generated. Two players may have completely different experiences from one another with No Man’s Sky. An official release date has not yet been announced.

Tearaway Unfolded

Release Date: TBA
TearawayUnfolded

Media Molecule is bringing Tearaway to the PlayStation 4. Tearaway Unfolded will be an expanded retelling of the BAFTA award-winning Tearaway that was released for the PS Vita. The game will put the DualShock 4’s touch pad to good use as you make your way through the colorful world of Tearaway.

Deep Down

Release Date: TBA

deep-down-1

On the surface, Deep Down appears to be Capcom’s answer to From Software’s Souls series. Players join together to take on dungeons, fight bosses, or seek out treasure. The dungeons are said to be randomly generated to each player, giving a unique experience for everyone. Not too much has been revealed about the game but stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

Street Fighter V

Release Date: TBA 2016

Street Fighter V

Xbox owners may have been a little upset when they found out that Street Fighter V wouldn’t be coming to their platform. The next installment to the extremely popular fighting franchise won’t be coming until 2016 so fans will have some time to get their fightsticks ready.

Rime

Release Date: TBA

Rime

Rime is a colorful open world puzzle adventure game. Not too much is known about the game at this time but it looks as though it could be compared to The Wind Waker crossed with Ico.

Rachet & Clank

Release Date: TBA

RatchetandClank

A new Ratchet & Clank game is being developed as an origins story for Ratchet, according to Insomniac Games. The game is being developed alongside the Ratchet & Clank feature film that has been in the works. The new Ratchet & Clank is said to re-imagine the original game with updated gameplay and completely new visuals.

Silent Hills

Release Date: ???

Silent Hills

Unless you have been living under a rock, chances are you have heard that Hideo Kojima is no longer working with Konami. His involvement with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is still in the works but unfortunately, no word has been given about his relation to the highly anticipated Silent Hills. The teaser P.T., directed by Kojima, truly excited fans as they wet their pants while exploring a relatively small area.

Persona 5

Release Date: TBA 2015

Persona5

The highly anticipated installment in the Persona series is said to make its debut in 2015. Persona 5 will follow along in the same RPG gameplay style as previous games in the franchise but a few fresh iterations are to be expected. 

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

Release Date: TBA 2015

rapture-header

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture will take place in a village during the apocalypse. The game centers around six main characters and each will tell their part of the story. This game will act as a spiritual successor to Dear Esther and will be set in a large open world. 

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Release Date: TBA 2016

The Gamer Headlines Show

Uncharted is one of the biggest names on the PlayStation. Unfortunately, fans won’t be playing Uncharted 4 until 2016. On the other hand, it will give Naughty Dog plenty of time to polish the game to deliver another fantastic experience to players.

So Nintendo is going to be making mobile games based on their hit characters and franchises. These mobile games will be on phones, and tablets, and other similar devices. It’s easy to see how certain franchises like Mario will work on these devices, but what about the more complicated franchises?

For example…could Super Smash Bros. make its way to mobile devices?

Before you scoff and list the ways it couldn’t work, I want to note that it will be a challenge no doubt. But, with Nintendo, and now DeNA, it could be at least plausible. Also remember, we were unsure how well Super Smash Bros. would translate to the 3DS. We were worried about viewing size, about 4 characters being on the same screen at once, about the framerate, about how internet would work, etc. And now, not only is it popular, it’s actually outselling its console counterpart. For me personally? I play the 3DS version more than the Wii U version, mainly because it’s portable, and I can play it for a quick spell without having to worry about being in my main room to set it all up.

So, with a blueprint kind of set up in regards to Smash Bros. not needing to be on a console, the potential is there for it being on mobile. Now I’m going to list some reasons it could work, but also listing some concerns that would need to be addressed.

Reason It Could Work No.1: There is a fighting game model available that will help facilitate their needs.

Error Code 160-0103

 

Confused by this? I understand. Let me explain. Nintendo’s goal for these mobile games are basically two-fold, not including the obvious “make money”. First, they want to expand the brand of Nintendo to more people. More people playing Nintendo games helps the company a lot. Cause if they like the mobile games, they’ll be inclined to buy the handheld and console games as well.

Also, Iwata has noted that this could be a good way to introduce new gamers to some of their other franchises without them having to play through an entire “console-like” game. For example, if they don’t know what Pikmin is, there could be a mini-game featuring Olimar on mobile, and if they like it, they might go and check out the main titles for it.

With Smash Bros., the roster alone exposes gamers to the vastness of the Nintendo brand. And once curiosity is peaked, the rest can take care of itself. But obviously we can’t stuff a massive roster into a mobile game, right? That would defeat the purpose. So, we follow what another fighting game did.

We alternate the playable roster.

I got this idea from the recent Killer Instinct game. Where the demo actually alternated who you could play as on a regular basis. All the while allowing you to purchase more characters to play as. Now I’m not saying Nintendo should do the latter, but the former is actually kind of clever.

What if, Nintendo only allowed say…2-3 playable characters a week for the game? More-or-less forcing you to break away from your “mains” and try out some new characters. This could actually help both with main SSB players and new gamers. Cause at times, it’ll level the playing field. Not to mention, it’ll expand ones use of the roster, which could make Smash Bros. even more fun!

So over the course of a year, you could in potential be good with just about every Smash Bros. character there is. And for new gamers, you’ll be exposed to many of the Nintendo roster. I easily could see an info tab giving gamers details about the characters and where they come from, and the games they’re in. Knowledge is power after all, and that knowledge could lead to more sales.

Concern No.1: Control Scheme

Wii U Gamecube Controller Adapter

It’s well known that Super Smash Bros. honestly has one of the best control schemes in the fighting game world. It’s simple, intuitive, and yet has depth we can appreciate. No button mashing combos needed in this game! Though people still button mash to be honest…

Anyway, an obvious concern if Super Smash Bros. is brought to mobile is the control scheme. Mainly in that not all device are the same in regards to design. Some screens are bigger, some are small, some have a keyboard extension, some don’t. This will raise a question on whether a universal control scheme would be used, or there be several tailored to individual devices.

While this may not be a problem in some ways, it will cause problems in others. Especially in touch screen optimization, as different devices most likely will have different sensitivities. However, as long as we’re patient, I’m sure Nintendo could figure it out.

For my personal phone, I found that my screen was actually bigger than the one on my 3DS (I have the original 3DS). After holding it in my hands, I found that if held lengthwise you could probably fit all the buttons you need on the bottom of the screen, all the while allowing the game to be played without obstruction. Again this would need to be tested on multiple devices, but Nintendo has shown the ability to make multiple control schemes before to great effect. No doubt it could work if they put the time into it.

Reason It Could Work No.2: The mobility and wireless connection are actually greater than handhelds.

New Nintendo 3DS

Part of the hook of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was the fact that you could fight anyone, anytime. You could literally pick up your 3DS, go anywhere, and as long as there was an internet connection, you could battle anyone. This was a revelation for many, which led to record sales, and lots and lots of online hours played.

For phones, that could get taken to the next level. Though mobility was a perk for Smash Bros. 3DS, you still had to lug the 3DS around. Which sometimes was risky, not to mention conspicuous in regards to the bigger models. With phones, and to a degree tablets, that wouldn’t be so much of a problem.

This goes especially for phones, where you can literally slip them in and out of your pocket without an issue. Also, most phones (depending on your wireless plan to be fair) automatically connect with the internet wherever you are. Even tablets can do this, and people carry around tablets like their phones in some cases because they’re multi-purpose.

This is the kind of freedom Nintendo wants. To give people games on devices they already use everyday. Phones, tablets, we use them for many reasons, but now we can play games with our favorite characters on them as well. Have a 15-30 break at work? Whip out your phone and play some Smash Bros.! Waiting for a friend to arrive for a lunch-date or meeting? Pull out your tablet and play Smash Bros.! It’s that simple.

Concern No.2: Gameplay Limitations

New Smash Bros Wii U Solo Gameplay Mode

Aside from controls, this would be the biggest question. How big would a mobile game on Smash Bros. be? By that I don’t mean roster (as I’ve already explained how that could work), I mean gameplay wise. Would there only be 1v1 matches? Would you try and do 4-player brawls?

Now yes, we know that there are games on mobile devices that have lots of content. Some were even massive RPG’s. The question becomes, should Nintendo go full force on this? Or should they pull it back to tailor to the casual crowd, and entice them to buy the full games on the 3DS/Wii U/NX/etc.?

There could be a fun balancing act here between standard SSB gameplay and the mini-games we all know and love. I could easily see Home Run Derby, Target Smash, and more enter the mobile version of the game along with the fights we know and enjoy doing. So the only question is: “How far should Nintendo go?”

Now look, there are plusses and minuses to this happening no doubt. You don’t want to insult the crowd that made Super Smash Bros. a legendary franchise, but you also don’t want to limit who might be playing the mobile games. I think this could work if done right. Nintendo and DeNA I have no doubt will be going through every franchise and asking themselves whether that franchise could work on mobile devices. Eventually, they’ll end up at Smash Bros., and if they take a good hard look? They may just find it could be their next hit.

A quick history lesson.

Oregon trail, like most of you may already know, was not a mere entertaining tool, which only purpose was to make kids happier while in school, no, it also carried the enormous obligation to inform the said youth for the fears and dangers of 19th century wild west. And, despite the god-awful fear for dysentery that most people acquired, we could say it was a massive success, and like most of the massive successes out there, it got a huge amount of sequels, spin-offs, and bootlegs, non of which held the popularity of its predecessor. But why am I telling you this, Orion Trail may be a little bit inspired by Oregon Trail, but that doesn’t prevent him from withdrawing the seriousness and sadness from Oregon Trail, and turn itself in a smart and creative adventure game.

But, what exactly is Orion Trail?

If the brilliant punny name, and the featured image didn’t reveal it already, Orion Trail is a sci-fi adventure game, which revolves around you and your officers wandering around the final frontier in a predetermined ship, completing specific missions, while having to survive with the limited resources that the player must assure to preserve. The game is heavily inspired by the sci-fi culture we all love and endure, there’s a Star Trek reference in every corner, some Star Wars allusions here and there, and even 2001: Space Odyssey/3001: Final Odyssey appears in it.

But instead of reviewing it, I’ll just explain you step-by-step how my first journey went.

Orion Trail (13)

I don’t kit on duty.

It was an easy mission, we just had to deliver the most amount of food we could to a queen, but first, I had to choose a captain to command my ship, and 3 choices were given to me, but, at the end, I chose the grumpy cat, because it was between him, a cockier version of Kirk (yes, it’s possible), or Spock, but he’s boring, and not a cat.

I then pursued to pick my ship, and what an important choise this is. My whole crew, and all of my resources, would be transported through the entirety of the galaxy by it. But, as usually, I only had 3 to choose from, and because I’m a balanced person, I chose the pirates one, as it was the most equitable of them all (abilities wise).

Orion Trail (14)

Now I only needed to decide which 3 officers to take with me. So I selected Mr Greeny Sploosh, I Am A Reference, and a werewolf guy, he is nice though, don’t worry.

 Note that all choices, including the officers, and the ship, will change the outcome of your adventure, as each and every single thing has its own skills and consume of resources.

I’ll now let that Mr Grumpy Catain takes my place, and from now on, the story will be told through his Captain’s log entries.

 Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.37, the journey just started, and our ship has already been infected by some sort of green alien race, fortunately we were able to domesticate them with our knowledge, which increased our crew, but we did lost some of our diplomacy though. 

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.42,  the strangest thing just happened today, two portals appeared on the bridge today, there was a future version of me in each one. One tells me to move forwards, but the other one, not as well dressed, and filled with injuries, tells me not to, and to dock on the nearest planet. I decided to capture them both in order to study them. Then, the most hilarious thing happens, while escorting the future cat mes, a rift in space and time opens, which was created by the paradox of me standing in front of my other future mes, opens and we’re quickly teleported to a parallel universe, where nothing has changed, but the fact that everyone has a beard, women included. We then proceeded forwards.

By this point, the USS Furryprise has completed a quarter of its journey. 

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.48, we’re currently approaching a rift, though my second officer recommends me to turn around it, I’ll try to use it as an opportunity, and try to seek some resources from it. Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.486, it was a success, by using some fire power, we were able to gather some more food we can deliver to the queen.

Orion Trail (3)

SPACEEE!!!

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.63, today was an exciting day, we encountered an asteroid field, while travelling as we usually do, and in order to escape  the Star Wars reference number 87, the U.S.S. Furryprise, under my orders obviously, attached itself onto an asteroid, making us save some fuel.

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.74, the day that we all lived today was not like our usual ones, there was danger yes, but not like the danger we’re used to. Orion Trail (5)It seems that choosing a crew composed by mostly humans might have been a mistake, here it is why. “Prepares female teen voice, that very much resembles a girl from New Jersey”- So, Ted, that son of a Bargal, has been messin with ma’gal Alexys, and now that jelly Dakota intervened, and Skylar, yes SKYLAR… fought with Alexys, which is now mad with both Dakota and Ted. “Comes back to his normal voice” 

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.79, a cosmic storm quickly approaches, Mr Fulu used it as an advantage, which gave us some extra fuel, but we lost some weaponry unfortunately.

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.83, Our journey is coming to an end, the food resources are low, but we fortunately found an unknown alien vessel which very very happy to give us some burgers.

Catain’s Log, Stardate 68791.84, as we docked onto a planet to refill, a shady dealer approached us saying it would exchange anything for fuel, so, even though my crew advised me not to do any deals with him, I knew we needed more that food, than the size of the risk itself. It worked, and we got some extra pounds of food to offer to the queen.

Orion Trail (8)

Orion Trail (11)Catain’s Log, Stardate 68792.12, some months have passed since I last made an entry, and much has happened, which may or may not involve giant squids and a galactic war, but we have finally reached the end of our journey. Some good men and women have died in order for this mission to be completed, but we have finally finished the task, and we can finally go home. By the way, don’t ask if the queen can borrow you some food for the comeback, it might end up with you losing one or two fingers.

Orion Trail (12)

And there it finished Mr Grumpy Catain’s journey. The mission here shown today, is one of the three mission that are currently available in the free version of Orion Trail. I won’t speak about any of the other two, but please acknowledge that they’re both equally original, and funny in their unique ways.

My Final Take:

Orion Trail is definitely a must-play. It might not have any hunting game like Oregon Trail did, or no fighting feature which could be found in Organ Trail did, but as a management game, Orion Trail is vastly more advanced and intelligent than any Oregon Trail inspired game I’ve ever played, as it makes the player think twice with every choise presented through his path, so that he can spare the most resources possible. Ohh, and one more thing, when the game wants to dingle dongle you, you can be sure it will dingle dongle you in the worst ways imaginable.

If you haven’t yet, do try the Prototype version, it’s free.

Capcom is going to the dogs…

If you’re like me, chances are you’ve looked at Phoenix Wright and asked yourself “Where are all the anthropomorphic dogs?”. Capcom has certainly done a fine job creating a cast of likeable characters, but wouldn’t they be better with fur? Of course they would. And Capcom understands that. If you don’t believe me then take a look at the trailer for Dog Ace Attorney. A full cast of canine voice actors makes this a great choice for every family member. Early character designs are looking great! The game even has Sherlock Dog Holmes! There’s just one problem…

April Fools!

It’s sad but true. Dog Ace Attorney is Capcom’s April Fools joke for the year of 2015. I for one am most disappointed. I wanted to see courtroom drama play out in barks and yaps. It would have been like the Puppy Bowl, but with more intrigue. It’s a shame isn’t it. But a man can dream.. a man can dream.

The Bloodborne patch 1.02 fixes the highly praised titles game breaking glitch.

Gamespot has reported that From Software has recently released the Bloodborne patch 1.02, which fixed a potentially game breaking bug as well as the ability to duplicate items. 

The game breaking bug in question would happen if players took part in online multiplayer as either a guest or as a hostile invader in the Forbidden Woods. If players did this, it would cause the Lunarium Key to disappear, and without it players can’t take on that areas boss. They would therefore be unable to access the unlocks for beating them or visit Master Willem or the Moonside Lake.

The Bloodborne 1.02 patch also fixed the duplicate items glitch and required player to have two characters. To start the glitch players would first have to empty the storage. Next with the second character, they would have to buy one pebble and put it in storage as the only item. Then with the main character, players would then put in one of whatever item they want to duplicate before buying pebbles again, because any additional peddles bought would enter the storage, as the item they want duplicated. 

Bloodborne is the latest title to be released by From Software. Despite the games difficulty, speedrunners have already beaten it in 44 minutes.

The Minecraft 1.10 “update”, now with 100% more smiling creepers.

Developers Mojang has released details about their upcoming Minecraft 1.10 “update” which will include features that players have been waiting for such as hugs and love. 

According to Mojang post “We’ve thought long and hard about this, but we finally feel happy to announce that we are now changing the general direction of the game Minecraft. Starting from the next update we will be focusing on the things that make life worth living, promoting healthy relationships with the environment and its inhabitants.”

To this end the games monsters are now called “inhabitants” “as they live in this world just like you or me.” and the creepers no longer explode as “they have gotten over their nervous disposition”. Players can now ride the Ghasts across the nether and Skeletons are actually skilled farmers. 

Who knew a portal to hell could look so inviting.

Who knew a portal to hell could look so inviting.

Due to the games new nature, players will no longer have to worry about health or hunger and you can’t hurt any of the games “inhabitants”, as this is now a game about love not violence. 

While players are able to ride the Ghasts, players can no longer ride horses because “this was deemed unfair to the horses”. Instead they can now ride you but that doesn’t matter because they also added dirt bikes.

While the addition of dirt bikes are cool, some players will be disappointed to here that all players will only get one world “in order to reduce fragmentation and to treat all worlds as equals.” They may also be sad to here that all of the graphic configurations have been removed. 

If you don’t believe me here is the full “update” changelog, straight from Mojong’s blog:

Gameplay

  • We have removed the ability to directly harm other creatures. You should be rewarded for helping, not hurting.
  • Removed Health and Hunger. We feel that these are not appropriate gameplay mechanics for a game about love, sharing and peacefulness.
  • Added a new “Love” meter. This fills up the more you help others, and others help you.
  • “Survival” mode has been renamed to “Existence”.

Animals

  • Bats are now 20% cuter. Squeek.
  • Chickens can now be ridden by any player less than two blocks tall.
  • Cows will now alert you to important events that you may have missed by means of an audible notification.
  • Pigs can no longer fly, but can now climb on walls.
  • Rabbits are fluffy.
  • Sheep will, if asked nicely, share their wool to keep you warm.
  • Squid changed, but we’re still trying to figure out how or why.

Monsters Inhabitants

  • “Monsters” are no longer named as such. The preferred term is “Inhabitants”, as they live in this world just like you or me.
  • Steve and Alex have realized that the inhabitants are not evil, and just want to hug and get along.
  • Creepers no longer explode. They have gotten over their nervous disposition and are much more friendly once you get to know them.
  • Skeletons have revealed themselves to be very efficient farmers, having a permanent source of bone meal on them at all times.
  • Blazes are actually pretty cool guys and will defend you from harm.
  • Guardians have put aside the initial misunderstanding, and now welcome you into their home with arms… erm… eyes… wide open.
  • Ghasts are no longer frightened so easily, and will offer you rides throughout the nether.
  • Slimes are now pretty fun to hang around with, sharing their secret jumping abilities to those that will listen.
  • Witches are super friendly and surprisingly knowledgable. They will help you by sharing their potions.
  • Zombies are extremely cuddly and love to hug.
  • The Wither has been replaced with his lovable pink counterpart, promoting vitality and nourishment to the environment around him.

Weather & Environment

  • Removed rain as it upset a lot of players.
  • Falling snow has a chance to make exposed chests mysteriously full of goodies at midnight.

Villagers & Villages

  • Trading has been rebalanced. We felt that the previous incarnation wasn’t very fair, and believe the new system is a step towards helping fix this.
  • Villagers will offer you help in picking up items or blocks, in exchange for a small fee for their services.
  • Iron Golems can appear as a manifestation of the village’s love for you.

Blocks

  • Lava has been replaced with liquid cheese. It’s delicious and much safer!
  • TNT has been replaced with a much friendlier block: A love bomb.

Items

  • As we no longer have a hunger system, food items now give Happiness instead of Saturation.
  • Carrot on a Stick has been removed. It was just cruel to pigs and we are very sorry for this.

Combat

  • Bows no longer require arrows.
  • Shooting things makes them fall in love with the first thing they see.
  • Removed combat.

World generation & terrain

  • Dungeons have been replaced with homes, offering a much more inviting and comfortable experience for everybody.
  • All caves have been checked by the Minecraft Safety Committee to ensure a safer experience for players.
  • Desert temples no longer contain TNT traps, and come with a nice, safe way to access the bottom floor.
  • Some cliff edges may be lined with fences to avoid accidents by the unwary traveller.
  • Jungle temples are no longer trapped, containing instead a new rare Golden Creeper to reward exploration.

Potions

  • Some potions such as Strength or Harming have been removed, as we no longer have a place for them in the game.
  • Added four (4) new potions:
    • Love Potion
    • Happiness Potion
    • Potion of Sharing
    • Potion of Caring
    • Fun Potion

Transportation

  • Horses can no longer be ridden as this was deemed unfair to the horses.
    • In compensation to the horses, they can now ride on your shoulders.
  • Minecarts now have a fluffy pink interior.
  • Added obsidian boats which are impossible to break.
  • Improved regular wooden boats.
  • Added dirt bikes.
  • Ender pearls no longer transport you to the target, but instead the target to you.

Weather & Environment

  • Added rain back as it soothed a lot of players.
  • Falling snow has a chance to make exposed chests mysteriously full of goodies at midnight.

Game Settings

  • Not everybody had the same experience playing Minecraft under different configurations, so we decided to remove all the graphical settings.
  • You may now only have one world, in order to reduce fragmentation and to treat all worlds as equals.
  • Some resource packs were prettier than others, giving some players an unfair advantage in the amount of fun they were having. This has been fixed.

Three Assassins. Three Journeys. One Creed.

Ubisoft officially announced Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, a platformer spin-off series split up into three different titles, respectively set in China, India and Russia.

The first chronicle, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, will put you in the shoes of Shao Jun (whom was the last member of the Brotherhood to be trained by fan-favorite mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze) during the downfall of the Ming Dynasty. She made her first appearance in the animated short film Assassin’s Creed Embers.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India will focus on the war in the Sikh Empire, featuring assassin Arbaaz Mir as the playable character.

Last but not least, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will show you how Nikolaï Orelov dealt with the aftermath of the Red October revolution.

Climax Studios will be in charge of the development of all three titles in close partnership with Ubisoft Montreal. The games will be played in a 2.5D perspective akin to that of the classic Prince of Persia titles. Each entry will feature its own unique art style and gameplay elements, like Orelov’s rifle and Jun’s chain blade. The latter was originally designed for Connor in Assassin’s Creed III but was later replaced by the rope dart.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will come out for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this month on April 21. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will be released later as separate entries.

Those who own the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass get Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China free of charge. If you wish to buy each entry on its own, it will cost you a rather reasonable $10 per chronicle.
