Sony at E3: Live Coverage
From the opening, we will be covering Sony’s E3 show!
Opening the show, we see a fantastic trailer for Destiny. A deep, ominous voice narrates over incredibly beautiful next gen graphics that resemble a somewhat Sci-Fi Bioshock Infinate type appearance. The whole thing feels like Halo and Star Wars combined as we see land fighter jets and rifles. Robed figures with red eyes and laser cannons. Its a pretty impressive trailer and a brilliant start to their conference. The whole thing really does have an incredible Halo influence, brought over by Bungie studios.
Andrew House takes the stage, he announces that all playstation gamers will be able to get the beta July 17th.
This weekend they will be able to play the first look alpha on ps4 www.greatnessawaits.com/destiny
The white playstation four is announced with an exclusive Destiny bundle.
The Order trailer is next, and it looks especially creepy. We hear flies buzzing and the main protagonist carry a flashlight through bloodstained rooms that look somewhat like tunnels in a hospital. The protaganist is faced with a zombie like creature, it mutates before him and we enter a chilling chase scene with guns, heavy breathing and a cheeky quicktime event thrown in. The scenery feels a lot like Outlast, but the creature shows its a stand alone game as we see it slowly morph to a zombie before the protagonist takes shots. I feel this is one to watch for horror fans!
A lighter mood suddenly, and we see beautiful, colourful origami figures float along pastel backgrounds in a simple trailer for entwined.
The game follows two souls in love, that can’t be together. It features a new idea on duel stick controls as you move your characters through an obstacle course. The game feels extremely artistic and unique. It’s the first game made by the team. The game has been released tonight for $9.99 and will be available on Vita soon.
New DLC for Infamous: Second Son is announced, it is called First Light and will be coming August 2014.

The new game feels exactly the same as the others, with the same warm, fun appearance and happy music, however this time it’s bigger with more customization and more companions. Definitely not a let down, and the E3 crowds seem especially pleased! They seem even more pleased when it is announced that all the previous user created maps will be available on LBP3 with updated graphics.
Bloodborne announced, a new game from Software.
The trailer looks amazing. The graphics look really beautiful and wonderful for a game that appears to be even creepier than The Order, with lots of skinless dogs and undead. It seems like one to watch, with an extremely well executed trailer that gives very little away yet really interests. The game is due in 2015.
Farcry 4 coverage.
Set in Kyrat, the demo follows AJ looking for a fortress through a forested mountain area. An incredible display showing the beautiful scenery, textures and particle effects. We see a little bit of combat with a cross bow, before AJ plants a bomb on a barrel and kicks it at an unsuspecting enemy.
A really fun driving scene follows, with music playing and guns blazing before the truck veers of a hill and explodes. AJ then flys through the air and lands in a field before a second player, Hurk joins. We see duel combat from a helicopter in a run down camp full of enemies and elephants. The combat looks smooth and clean, with an interesting use of the elephants as they topple a car to huge explosions. The whole game looks fun and a true Farcry game with incredible scenery.
It is announced that your PSN friends can now join you in game even if they don’t own the game!
