Sony exec: PlayStation Move was ahead of its time

Motion controls were all the rage, until they weren't. The Wii had its day in the sun, but that time's certainly come and gone. Microsoft just kicked Kinect to the curb. And as PlayStation Move, well, let's just say Sony put ...

Trends of this Generation: Waggling with motion controls photo
Trends of this Generation: Waggling with motion controls
by Daniel Starkey

If current estimations are to be believed, the current console generation will be the longest we’ve seen in the history of gaming. As of right now, just a little less than one-third of my life fits between November 16, 2005 and now.

That’s a huge chunk of time. Think about it. The entire presidency of Barack Obama, the collapse of the global financial markets, and the rise of cellphones (and then smartphones) all fit pretty neatly in that space. Not to mention, things like Netflix, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, and nearly everything else that the tech savvy among us use on a daily basis did not exist when this generation started. Hell, Destructoid wasn’t born until March 2006. So much has changed that it’s easy to lose sight of the past.

Talking Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut with SWERY photo
Talking Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut with SWERY
by Steven Hansen

Destructoid’s love affair with the inimitable, idiosyncratic Deadly Premonition is a point of public record. Jim’s infamous, glowing, 10/10 review turned a lot of people onto the game -- myself included -- and for that we are as thankful as Resident Evil 6 are indignant. Or, if you’re playing along at home, substitute any game that we score low. “[x] gets a [y] when Deadly Premonition gets a 10,” the commenter scoffs and chortles into his Cheetos.

We’re all aware, of course, that there are some technical issues in the game. Deadly Premonition’s release was a rare one. A Japanese studio was developing, plainly, for a Western audience. The project was helmed by a man, SWERY (or SWERY65), committed to his bizarre vision and allowed creative control. That something so unique and personal got a retail, console release was amazing enough. The team being able to revisit the title to address niggling concerns, beautify it, and add content just seems unreal. Yet, that’s precisely what’s happening with Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut.

BioShock Infinite goes beyond our sky high expectations photo
BioShock Infinite goes beyond our sky high expectations
by Allistair Pinsof

BioShock Infinite begins much as the original begins: a mysterious man, lost at sea, on a mission that starts at a lighthouse and leads to who knows where. But then, the player ascends up toward the heavens, or at least what a citizen of the flying city Columbia calls, “the closest you can get to heaven.”

It’s as if Irrational is commenting on BioShock’s own evolution. Upon entering Columbia, the story we left behind in 2007 is so far below that you can barely see it. Any lingering memories of Rapture fade away among the bright sky and lights of Columbia’s floating city blocks. It's a world so detailed that it makes one wonder what’s the point of high definition if not all of our games feature a similar quantity of original art assets as this one.

In my three hours spent playing BioShock Infinite from its opening, I have to say that it indeed seems to be the closest you can get to heaven.

NYCC: Until Dawn is a horny horror flick that you control photo
NYCC: Until Dawn is a horny horror flick that you control
by Dale North

Announced at gamescom earlier this year, Until Dawn puts players in control of the cast of characters in what looks to be a classic teen horror film. It's a PS3 title set for next year, and it uses the PlayStation Move controller exclusively. 

I got a full walkthrough of one particularly horny extened segment of the game here at New York Comic-Con. It followes characters Jessica and Michael as they head out and away from the lodge. The folks with them on this group trip have had enough of their horniness, and have sent them away to do their thing in a secluded cabin in the woods. 

If you've seen enough horror flicks, you probably know how this goes.

TGS: Okami, third time, charm, etc. photo
TGS: Okami, third time, charm, etc.
by Conrad Zimmerman

I don't know how many times I can play Okami and come up with something to say without feeling like I'm repeating myself. I played it on the PS2, then again on the Wii, and today I played it on the PS3 in its latest incarnation, Okami HD. I suppose it's a testament to how much someone at Capcom believes in Okami that they're trying yet again to get the game to sell in the numbers that it likely deserves. 

This latest version is just as fine as any other, for what it's worth. The PlayStation Move controller works a treat for using Amaterasu's painting powers, as you'd expect if you have any experience with the Wii version. Honestly, it's probably better, but I'm not prepared to make that call on the basis of a press room experience (though, in fairness, the demo took place in a busy conference room; hardly the tightly controlled environment which would arouse suspicions). The jump to high-definition visuals is noticeable and everything looks crisp.

Everything except Amaterasu, that is. Maybe it's just the godly energy showing through, but the white wolf has a noticeable blur in motion that directly contrasts with the crisp, clean environments and other characters. I found it mildly distracting, but that could also just be down to my seeking of anything new or different about this release. Even the three visual filters found in the game's options menu failed to give me anything to work with, as I couldn't observe any discernible difference between "Normal," "Light" and "Heavy" filters.

Okami HD is, in all likelihood, going to be the definitive release of a game hardly anybody bought. I'd like to believe that somehow, this time will be different. I'd also like to believe that if I eat Taco Bell every day, I'll never get fat, but reality has a way of disappointing no matter how hard you wish for something.
