I'm back with some gaming trends that are happening, after last years busy Christmas period ,it looks like the big three still have a way to go to cement their consoles in the new 8th gen era.
Yes we all know Sony's PS4 has stolen the show in the sales department ,shifting more then twenty million consoles since launch with Microsofts XBOX One trailing at around the 12 million mark.
But the big question is where are the games that these systems need so badly.
Other then multi cross platform games ,which sees no need to upgrade to a new machine if you can get the games on your old one.
Halo is a masterful game, but how much do you need to play the games again?
The remaster process with games like The Last of Us,Halo Collection,Tomb Raider defintive edition may give that extra polish to some degree,but it's not worth shelling out £400 on a new console for.
Exclusives are the key and whilst recently the PS4 has recieved ''The Order 1886'' which has not faired well in the review departments on some sites due to the games short lifespan it does showcase the power of the system a bit more
Of course the recently released ''Bloodborne '' looks set to shake things up a bit with FROM Softwares game being a lovely looking game with some hardcore gameplay which is common with FROM's titles.
A reason to own a PS4 ?
But where has Nintendo been , well there Smash Brothers launch before Chistmas garnered them some decent sales and the New year game ''Captain Toad Treasure Tracker '' has done surpisingly well as a slighlty lower priced title which is not as large as SMW3D but uses that games engine in a new way to tell Toads story.
A fun filled game ,that's sure to delight.
Of course Nintendo's end of year announcemnets of their entry into the Mobile market has turned their profits up but has brought speculation to where they are heading , plus the announcement of a new gamig hardware code named NX spelled the deaf nell for the Wii U as rumours swathed across the interent in minutes of Wii U's early demise .
Now right up to date Nintendo's April 1st Direct for the fans may have made a fool of the naysayers as they confirmed releases dates for titles coming within the next coming months ..
First up is Splatoon '' the third person multi- player shooter which sees you play a squid and must fight by shooting ink at your opponenets and take over their areas. with a frentic online and offline mdoes planned this title could set a new benchmark for games where you can shoot stuff.
Out May 29th in Europe
Plus the games comes amiibo ready with Nintendo's Toys to Life series expanding with another wave of characters appearing this May and June.
Girl Inkling amiibo
June sees the relaese of Yoshi Woolly World ,yes yoshi is back in this yarn based game where up to two players can play co-op in this gorgeous looking platformer.
Again the game is amiibo compatable and a special edition package will be available with a Yarn Yoshi amiibo in real yarn. Plus the amiibo will be available seperatly in three colours.
Yoshi goes amiibo
Yoshi comes home on June 26th in EUROPE
Another big announcment was that the West is finally going to get the Localisation of Tecmo's Fatel Frame 'The Black Haired Maiden'' giving the Wii U a much needed mature game in the West which will go nicley with The Devils Third.
Gaming looks set to be quite exciting over the next few months, and i will be here and at K.I.T.G. with new updates weekly from now. back shortly with even more great gaming news for all systems.
