As I am coming to the end of my PS3 games that I really want to play, I realise I have not played a decent FPS for ages. So did some trawling round the shops and PSN, and there seem to be some bargains to be had. I'm after games with a good campaign, not bothered with MP, and I guess some servers will be gone now anyway. So I've grabbed
Borderlands 1 and 2 and The Orange Box, was looking to grab a couple more. Resistance 3 seems a solid bet, as does SIngularity for being a bit different. Was also going to grab a Crysis game, which is best, 2 or 3?
Any other suggestions of stuff I might be missing? I really enjoyed Spec Ops, but I can't think of a shooter that has grabbed me since CoD2 (I did play the Black Ops campaign as well). Didn't get on well with Far Cry Blood Dragon either.
Hitman - March 11th 2016 - PS4 + PC beta starts today!
By Jimmy Shedders
CGI announcement trailer:
First proper trailer:
Gameplay details from reddit Q&A:
- Sniper rifle carried in case and needs to be assembled/packed up again rather than the magic pockets of Absolution
- Hiding gun behind back when near NPCs from Blood Money returns
- 'accident' hits for targets return
- minimap now tells you where disguises are effective
- full-screen map also returns with points of interest marked
- Diana gives updates over the earpiece e.g telling you movements of the target
- some comedy disguises seem to be back
- alerts can trigger lockdowns - civvies leave the area and security conduct a sweep, after which everything returns to normal. These can be triggered strategically e.g by activating fire alarms
- guards alertness indicated by yellow/red markers over their heads
- certain guards are 'observant' meaning they will bust your disguise more easily. This is often logical, such as head-of-security knowing all his staff. These guards are marked on the minimap to avoid trial and error.
- metal detector checkpoints return
- save anywhere instead of checkpoints
- guards can find mines you've places and will take them away for investigation (much like guards finding your specialist guns lying around in Blood Money and taking them back to the security room).
- a form of 'Instinct' seem to return, like Batman's detective vision, highlighting points of entry/egress and guards.
- shoving people returns. Including over railings.
- throwing objects seems to have returned
- choose weapons and equipment before entering a level
- David Bateson voicing 47 again
- Gameplay closest to Blood Money out of any game in the series
"More Blood Money than Absolution"
"Going by the initial presentation, Hitman appears to be the game fans have been waiting for since 2006's Hitman: Blood Money, with huge sandbox environments and an unprecedented amount of opportunities to assassinate your target"

Final Fantasy V: first post
Playing Theatrhythm recently has evoked a wave of nostalgia, so I'm starting an epic quest to revisit every Final Fantasy game, starting with the first. The Vita will be my weapon in this journey, and this forum will be my log of events, and my thoughts and opinions as I progress through the series.
I have absolutely no idea how long this will take (probably years), but let's start at the start with Final Fantasy.
Originally released on the NES in 1987 and so titled because it was to be a near-bankrupt Squaresoft's final game, before it got popular and spawned eleventy-billion sequels.
The original Final Fantasy has been re-released many times. It and Final Fantasy II were 'remade' for the Wonderswan with better graphics; that version was ported to the GBA and PSone, and then it was remade again with higher resolution graphics for the PSP. That's the version I'm playing now. I wish I could do screengrabs of PSP games because it looks incredible. All the sprites, backgrounds and music have been redone, and there's a lovely touch where shadows of clouds pass over the towns.
I played the NES version many years ago, via emulator. I got about half way through before getting lost and giving up. I played it again on GBA in 2003, and completed it that time, but I can't remember much of it.
It starts quite unlike any of the other games, with no fanfare or theatrics. Your four characters are blank slates, to whom you must asign names and jobs, and are then dumped into the game world, just outside of Cornelia city.
I've gone for a Warrior, a Black Mage, a White Mage and a Thief. This should be a balanced enough setup. I've never tried using the Thief before, so I don't know what they can do. Pick a bad team and you're screwed - there's no chance to change them once you begin!
The world is falling apart, the light of the crystals is fading, and only the four warriors of light can restore the light to them. King Cornelia's daughter has been kidnapped by Garland and taken oop north, so I'm sent on a quest to rescue her. As plots go, it's pretty tedious, but hey, it was the eighties...

Campo Santo development blog

So Campo Santo (for those of who who don't know) is the new studio from Jake Rodkin, Sean Vanaman, (both previously from Telltale Games, also from Idle Thumbs), renowned artist Olly Moss, Lead designer on Mark of the Ninja Nels Anderson, former Double Fine guy Chris Remo, and a few others.
And from the description and artwork alone, this could be something really special.
