“The Last Of Us Remastered” announced for PS4…Great!

It’s official! The Last Of Us will be released in a “remastered” form for PS4!

That was good news, specially for PS4 owners who didn’t get the chance to play The Last Of Us on PS3. It’s also good news for those who played The Last Of Us on PS3 and want to live this amazing adventure one more time on a next-gen console. The Last Of Us was a beautiful unique game that deserves to be on next-gen. 

Although this is very good news, some people are upset and I can’t find a reasonable explanation for that. I read some comments and articles about this and some people think that releasing The Last Of Us for PS4 is “a waste of time and money”. They also think that “the game was already great on PS3”.

What? Can’t a game be released again on another console? I know that it already looked great on PS3 but it will definitely look greater on PS4, like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. If you enjoyed The Last Of Us on PS3, then why don’t you let other people enjoy it on PS4?

Anyway, releasing The Last Of Us (A.K.A. one of the greatest games ever!!) for PS4 is a huge step for Sony in this “next-gen battle”.

However, we still want a sequel. Come on, Naughty Dog! You created a great game and you’re still thinking whether you should make a sequel or not?! I’m very happy with this amazingly good news! But I will be even more happy when I hear that Naughty Dog is considering making a sequel.  

Anyway, we should thank Naughty Dog and Sony for this because most of us wanted to hear this months ago.

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!

Is 2014 the year of survival horror?

Survival horror has been missing for a while, even Resident Evil 6 was more of an action game (according to IGN’s review). Games which were supposed to be “survival horror” became just actions games where you just kill zombies. But this year, it looks like survival horror is coming back.

It started with Outlast, the terrifying game set in an abandoned asylum where your only weapons are a camera with a night vision option and your feet (for running only). With this “no weapons” thing, the term “survival” is back, and with the sudden movements of creepy creatures and people who appear to be dead but they’re not dead yet, the term “horror”” is back!

After Outlast, Daylight is coming this April. In this game, your only weapon is light (through flares, glow sticks and a cell phone which is also your map). Not only this, but the hospital, where you play, changes, so you can’t “remember” your way because it will be different every time you play!

Then, in August comes The Evil Within (represented in the picture), which is, in my opinion, the coolest because it resembles Resident Evil and Silent Hill. It’s set in a haunted mansion (according to the trailer) where strange things have taken place and you kind of go there to investigate.

Dying Light combines survival horror with action. In the morning, you search for supplies, kill regular slow zombies and set traps, that’s the action part, but at night, zombies become faster and are able to climb structures and they will chase you (if they notice you) till they kill you, and that’s the survival horror part. At night, you just run for your life!

I don’t play survival horror ganes because I don’t like being scared and I’m easily scared, but games like The Evil Within, Outlast, Dying Lightand Daylight are worth being terrified for!

Is Assassin’s Creed staying forever?

Assassin’s Creed Unity was announced recently, so now Assassin’s creed is officially an annual game. We all thought that with the ending of Desmond’s story, the franchise will end, too. But we were wrong. After Assassin’s Creed III, came Black Flag, and after it Unity will come. So it wasn’t about Desmond, It’s clearly about what gamers want. We all love Assassin’s Creed and we want one every year and Ubisoft is giving us what we want.

The thing is, are we going to want Assassin’s Creed forever? Or are we going to get bored? And if we want Assaassin’s Creed, will the guys at Ubisoft keep making good ones or will they run out of ideas?

Assassin’s Creed is one of the greatest franchises ever, but AC III wasn’t that good. Connor’s story was lame (and kind of personal), Connor was unlikeable and the setting wasn’t beautiful or fascinating. Gamers were like “Yeah, no more Assassin’s Creed
specially after Desmond died. But Ubisoft saved the franchise with Black Flag with the awesome Edward Kenway, the beautiful setting and the cool pirate theme. So gamers were like “OK, more Assassin’s Creed!!!” So Ubisoft gave them Unity.

Ubisoft‘s vice president of creative Lionel Raynaud recently said that they (Ubisoft) would be very “stupid” if they don’t give gamers Assassin’s Creed every year because “They want Assassin’s Creed every year”. So as long as we want it, Ubisoft will give it to us.

I love Assassin’s Creed and I want it to stay forever and be set in my country one time. But I also want a story and a protagonist (outside the Animus).

If we want Assassin’s Creed to stay forever, then it satys forever. Because….Everything Is Permitted
