Things we want to see in a Prince Of Persia reboot.

It’s about time for Ubisoft to consider making a reboot for the successful Prince Of Persia series. Prince Of Persia is one of Ubisoft‘s best games. The last game in the series was Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands which was released in 2010, so it’s too late for another sequel now. We need a reboot. But we also need new things in this reboot.

First of all, we need it to be an open world game. I’m not saying totally open world like Assassin’s Creed but more like Thief, when you’re not in a mission you can free roam but when you’re in a mission you follow a certain path. The settings of the Prince of Perisa games were beautiful and deserved to be explored freely.

Another thing we need is a new prince. We love the old prince but if it’s a reboot then it should have some major changes. It can be a change in the appearance only like Dante in DmC. He was still Dante but he had a (slightly) different look and wore different clothes (also slightly different).

I, personally, preferred the personality of the prince in Prince Of Persia: Ghost Of The Past, so i would love to see this personality used in the new prince.

The last thing we need is not something in the gameplay its something in the Prince Of Persia games that are yet to come. We want it to be an annual game just like Assassin’s Creed and the Prince Of Persia Trilogy.

Prince Of Persia is a game that should stay forever. We loved it so much, we still love it and we will love it forever!

Let me know if you agree with me or not in the comments. Also if there’s something you’d like to see in a Prince Of Persia reboot, just say it in a comment

Will Watch Dogs Beat Grand Theft Auto (GTA)?

GTA has been very successful in the past few years and this success was mostly because there was hardly any mafia game that was as good as GTA. Although there were some games that resemble GTA, none of them was as good as it.

But this May, GTA will have a competitor, Watch Dogs will be released on May 27th, and not only does Watch Dogs resemble GTA, it, in my opinion, surpasses it.

Watch Dogs‘ gameplay is so similar to GTA, but there’s something that GTA doesn’t have..hacking! In Watch Dogs you control Aiden Pearce, a vigilante, whose strongest weapon is hacking into almost anything. You control the city and use it to your own advantage.

There’s another thing that will make Watch Dogs beat GTA; Aiden Pearce, unlike the main characters in all GTA games, is likable and has an interesting story. He is more flexible. He is silent and calm. He is, in conclusion, a modern assassin!

The environment is also better with a huge variety of vehicles that you can drive.

Ubisoft is known for making great games; Assassin’s Creed, Prince Of Persia…etc. So Watch Dogs is definitely going to be a great game This year might be the end of GTA‘s huge success and the beginning of Watch Dogs’ enormous success!

Thief could have been much better.

Thief (sometimes referred to as Thief 4), which is a reboot of the Thief series, came out this year in February. I learned that fans were disappointed. I didn’t play any of the first three Thief games but I did play the reboot (the fourth) and it could have been much better than this.

First of all, the first-person mode wasn’t comfortable. I’m controlling a thief, I need to see his body, specially with the shadows thing. Controlling Garrett while seeing his body would have made it easier and better.

Another thing is; the freerunning. In Assassin’s Creed, you can climb almost every structure, but in Thief, Garrett the professional thief can’t climb almost every structure! Though, I do admire the swoop ability.

One of the most annoying things was the lack of weapons. This Blackjack isn’t enough. What kind of thief who steals forks doesn’t have a dagger at least. I know that you can finish the game without killing any guard but sometimes the best way to reach some destination requires killing one guard who will detect you and engage in combat. At this point, this Blackjack isn’t useful at all.

The last thing (I can think of now) is Garrett’s terrible voice acting. It’s very flat and lame.

The game is fun with a lot of amazing abilities. The stealth is great. The Focus ability is very helpful. The environment is great. But there are some things that could have made Thief meet the fans’ expectations and even impress them.

If you have the game, don’t give up on it and take good care of it because…What’s yours is mine!

Is a Grand Theft Auto movie a good idea?

Grand Theft Auto (a.k.a. GTA) has been one of the most successful video games out there in the past few years. With the increasing success of the game, some fans now want a GTA movie. But the question is: Is that a good idea?

I mean do we really need another mafia movie? Playing as a criminal is fun; stealing cars, killing cops, and doing whatever you want because you just don’t care! But that’s only cool in a video game, if you watch this, you’ll have a sense of Déjà Vu. There are hundreds of mafia movies and they’re all kind of the same and GTA won’t add anything new.

Fans who asked for a GTA movie would regret it because they thought watching it would be as fun as playing the game, but it isn’t. I’m not saying it will be terrible but it will be repetitive and won’t help the game franchise.

Fans, please, enjoy playing video games but don’t ask for a game movie for every game you play.

Is the best game movie almost here?

Game movies are usually rated (by the game fans) according to two things:
1- How much different the plot is.
2- Casting.

That’s how it always was and always will be. For example, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time movie wasn’t admired by Prince Of Persia fans because of Jake Gyllenhaal (who was totally different from the Prince) and the different plot. Everyone was like “Why call it The Sands Of Time if you’re not going to use the game’s plot”. Not to mention that what Dastan (a.k.a. the Prince) was wearing in the movie was from Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within game. At the end, we got a good movie but a terrible game movie. If you watch it as if it was just a movie you’d like it, but if you watch it as a movie based on Prince Of Persia you’d hate it!

One of the greatest games out there (I didn’t play it but watching the gameplay was enough) is getting its movie soon, this game is The Last Of Us. The Last Of Us has a great plot, great characters and an amazing environment, so the movie should be great, but is the plot going to be the same? YES! Neil Druckmann said that the movie is a game adaptation, in other words, it will be a re-telling to the story of the game. So The Last Of Us passed the plot stage!

Now what remains is the casting, which shouldn’t be difficult because Joel and Ellie from The Last Of Us are very “clear” characters with crystal clear features and ages. If I had the chance to pick the actors, I would pick either Hugh Jackman or Gerard Butler for the role of Joel, as for the role of Ellie, it has to be Ellen Page and nobody else. Although she’s a bit old for the role but her height and features say otherwise. She’s the one for that role!

The Last Of Us will make a great game movie. I expect it to be the highest grossing game movie of all time!
