Lgndary Thoughts - PSX 2016 Impressions


Wow! What a weekend! The Game Awards were held on Friday, followed by The Playstation Experience, which was followed by Capcom Cup. There were plenty of announcements made, so I decided to talk about a few of my favorites. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

One of my favorite announcements was Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite. I hate that the news had leaked a couple of weeks before the event, but it was still exciting to see a game that I didn't think would happen for another 10 years. I will say that it is not as visually impressive as I had hoped it would be, but I don’t think that should detract too much from the game. I am also not bothered by the rumors suggesting characters like Wolverine won’t make an appearance. I know many people will disagree, but I say good riddance. 

Another game I am actually really happy to see announced is Knack 2. I know this is an unpopular opinion, and I know that I have already written a detailed thought on why I believe the first Knack got such bad reviews. But I still feel strongly that Knack is a very enjoyable game, and it is one that more than deserves a sequel. And co-op play is a great addition to the game. My only hope is that I can play the entire game with a friend online. 

And while it was not a new game announcement, I believe the new Death Stranding trailer stole the weekend, at least for me. I thought the first trailer was unique, and it definitely piqued my interest. But the second trailer is something different. It feels like a real game to me know, with real characters, and a real world. And more importantly, it feels like a Kojima game. Something I loved about the Metal Gear Solid series was the unique blend of technology with supernatural elements. It seems that Death Stranding will have a similar approach, and I could not be more excited.

But overall, I think PSX 2016 was a really great show. It had a little bit of something for everyone. I imagine most people will pick The Last of Us 2 as their favorite announcement. I disagree, but that’s okay. I had more than enough other announcements to get me hyped for a long time. 

What was your favorite announcement over the weekend? Be sure to leave a comment below!

Death Stranding runs on the same engine as Horizon: Zero Dawn


A new trailer was revealed over the weekend at the Playstation experience, but that wasn't all of the news that we got about the upcoming Death Stranding. At a panel featuring the game, Kojima announced that Death Stranding will be using the Decima Engine. An engine also being used to run Horizon: Zero Dawn. 

Kojima also revealed that female characters are planned for the game, as well as the fact that Mads character will be an antagonist. Be sure to check out the full panel after the break.

Guillermo del Toro: "F**k Konami"


He would later go on to add:

"Konami cancelling Silent Hills after PT is one of the most moronic things I've ever witnessed."

Could not agree more.
