We had the pleasure to attend Sony’s Holiday Showcase in New York City. We got to play the latest games and also some that haven’t quite hit the store shelves. Instead of boring our readers with paragraphs of useless filler, we have decided to skip all of that and give you the tons of photos and our impressions on each game we played.
Reality Fighters (Playstation Vita)
- Easy to control, simple buttons
- You can create a fighter with an image of yourself to put on the character.
- You are able to use back camera of the vita to project a landscape where fighters can fight in the real world.
- Graphics aren’t that great, but fun and simple for kids.
- Story takes place before part one on the ps3, they said this is one of Drake’s many adventures.
- Graphics are beautiful for a handheld, looks like your playing on a small TV with a ps3 hooked up to it.
- No online multiplayer sadly.
- Sony said it has a big replay value, i.e. collect items and getting trophies.
- New characters, won’t be seeing old faces from the ps3 versions mainly a new female in the mix.
- Touch screen on the game flows pretty well can drag your finger across the ledges so Drake can climb walls, poles, etc. also tilt the Vita to balance Drake when he walks across objects.
Street Fighter vs Tekken (PS3)
- Gameplay is just like street fighter 4 but Tekken characters are harder to use.
- Combos are a must, also if one character dies on your team the whole team will lose.
- Graphics are a bit more cell shaded, it’s a bit of a mix between Marvel vs Capcom 3 and Street Fighter 4.
- Received no word on multiplayer.
- Touch pad and touch screen are both used in this game. From what I played you can move objects, fling them around, push blocks, and also tilt the Vita left or right.
- Graphics are simple and kiddy compared to the console versions.
- Big community capability. Able to create and play with others according to what one of them told us.
Silent Hill (PS3)
- Controls are bad, very stiff.
- Graphics arent that great, bad textures, wasn’t detailed at all.
- Wasn’t very enjoyable, more frustrating and exhausting more than anything.
- No exclusive characters for consoles.
- Ezio Auditore is unlockable. He has five different weapons; crossbow, hidden gun, hidden blade, etc.
- Didn’t say much on multiplayer.
- Graphics are similar to last game, not a major change.
- Wasn’t all the impressed with the graphics on this one, very plain and boxed arenas.
- Wasn’t that much detail, you would think a game from the 90′s would be more updated and improved.
- 16 vs 16 multiplayer, one mode I played was like capture the leader on Gears of War 3, you have to escort the player across the map.
- There is a story mode for the popular characters.
- Able to download ps3 user creations from the original Modation racers.
- Graphics are just about the same as the console title.
- Can create a track with the touch of a finger.
- Burning Skies takes place right before Resistance 2.
- Fills in the lost years and gives players a ground eye view of the day the chimera came to New York City.
- Players follow a NY firefighter named Tom Riley as defends the city from the chimera invasion.
- There is a mode on this called “touch”, it allows players to just tap the screen and connect combos with ease, its similar to the simple mode on the consoles.
- Graphics are crisp and clean, playing at 60 frames per second.
- Online mode for on the go, WiFi 3G.
