I have been waiting to play the PSN title Journey for a while now, since before I even was given a PS3 by the lovely people of Sony. Once I did get a PS3 in my possession I bought 20 dollar Network card just to have money to buy this game. Of course, because of how little I play the PlayStation I am waiting on an update just to download one of the few PS3 games I want to play. I guess I will pop in Tales of Graces f while Journey downloads, since I can and all one of the cool things I like about the cumbersome PlayStation.
Jason Rohrer has done it again. This is one of his more gamey games. It even has shooting in it.
Then I will play Inside a Star-filled Sky, and hopefully talk about it. It seems like yet another game I could get completely lost in playing.
I don’t know much about Sword & Sworcery EP. What I do know is that it is an old school adventure game with an almost Punch-Out!! style battle system. It looks beautiful, and has some amazing music.
This unique experience is achieved in three pieces. The music is done Jim Guthrie, a man that I honestly had never heard of before I found out about this game. After listening to some of his songs I must say that he does a great job of building music.
The second piece is Superbrothers, a pixel artist by the name of Craig D Adams. I had actually seen work by Superbrothers. The retro and minimalist style is definitely something pleasing to my eye holes. Superbrothers has done print work which I have come across while traveling the depths of the world wide web. Some of these works were done for Wired Magazine. Superbothers has also worked on multiple projects with Jim Guthrie in the form of music videos.
The third and final piece is Capybara Games. I will go out on a limb and assume that this portion the the Sword & Sworcery EP is in charge of the programing behind the game. They have previously worked on Might & Magic for the DS, and something called Heart Beat with they call, “a dot-matrix musical oddessy about love and robots.” I MUST learn more about that later.
Here, watch someone play the beginning of the game without doing much exploring and with terrible sound.
Almost makes me want to get an iPad.
Heck, while I’m thinking about it. This would make a great Wii, Wish List game. I wonder if the file is too big?
In the past few few weeks I have watched Summer Wars. Great movie.
Then I finished Eden of the East. Great show. And now I’m patiently waiting to watch the movies.
Both are really good. Great English voices, very nice animation, interesting storylines, and sprinkled with advanced technology in a much more realistic manner than something like Ghost in a Shell.
Funimation is on a role lately. And now I guess I’ll catch up on Naruto via Hulu. I wonder what will be the next anime that catches my attention?
