The Last Guardian Delayed

No surprise there.

the-last-guardian

Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s World Widestudios for Computer Entertainment Inc., took to the Playstation Blog to update the progress for The Last Guardian. Here’s what Yoshida had to say:

The Last Guardian development team is fast approaching major milestones in production and has made the tough decision to delay the release of The Last Guardian a few weeks. The Last Guardian will launch on December 6, 2016.“.

With the amount of games coming out between now and December 6, we can all agree to the fact that we will be busy with another title until then.

The Last Guardian hits the Playstation 4 on December 6,2016.

Recapping Sony’s E3

sony-playstation-experience-e3-2016-live-theaters-june-13.jpg.optimal

Sony hit the ground running at E3 with displays of new games, new installments in current series, as well as a couple of big nostalgia bombs. Lets see what Sony had to offer this year.


God of War 

Is there a way for something to be the same and yet totally be different in just about every way? Cause that is the way God of War is feeling now. Still, it looks to be great even if a little different, and you always gotta give it a shot. I mean would you tell a grizzled Kratos no?


Days Gone

Ready for another post apocalyptic open world game? What if I told you got to play as a bounty hunter? Days Gone sets itself up two years after a global pandemic devastates the human population. Now, as Deacon St John, your only job is to survive.


The Last Guardian 

Take a Myazaki film, make it dark and turn it into a game. That’s essentially The Last Guardian. And I can’t wait. Seven years in the making and it returned in glorious and unexpected fashion at last year’s E3. Fortunately this should be the last time that we are teased with the project as its official release date is October 25th of this year. The wait is finally over.


Detroit Becomes Human

Now I love decision based games. Every decision is meaningful and even the seemingly safe move can still devolve a situation into chaos. Detroit Becomes Human is just that. Only you aren’t a human. Artificial intelligence runs the city, but what happens when the lines between right and wrong are blurred? Do the ends still justify the means to them?


Resident Evil 7

For decades Resident Evil has been scaring the hell outta players but they got away from that some time ago. This time around it feels like there’s gonna be a lot of spooked gamers out there should they choose to pick up this game. And that’s the way it should be. Exclusive looks at this game make it seem as though it could be a classic in the horror genre for video games.


Farpoint

Wanna experience space battles with giant hostile aliens? Take the VR software and pick up Farpoint. It may be your typical outer space FPS but with the VR experience it looks to be one of the first of its kind and fans are gonna wanna have fun with this one.


Battlefront VR Xwing Mission

Speaking of VR experiences in space, everyone who’s a Star Wars fan wants to fly an Xwing fighter. And with the new VR hardware fans will soon be able to live out their dreams through Battlefront VR Xwing Mission. Whether it’s actually good or not will be left for another discussion. Right now, I just wanna fly an Xwing.


Batman Arkham VR

It’s Batman. You get to be Batman. That is all you need to know to want this game.


Final Fantasy VR Experience

Experience Final Fantasy XV in the virtual world with Final Fantasy VR Experience. It’s been a bit but we’ll finally get a new FF game and if the new gameplay style is why the wait is so long, then hopefully the VR experience makes the change a far more welcome one.


Crash Bandicoot Remastered

crash-bandicoot

Not a whole lot to say. But the announcement was more than enough for everyone. Just happy to see Crash back where he belongs.


Death Stranding

Not really much to say as it’s just Norman Reedus naked on a seemingly uninhabited island (which we all can figure is not actually true). I think everyone will be interested to see where this one goes.


Spider-Man

Not exactly a fan of the suit but I am a fan of seeing Spider-Man back. So many games based on comic book heroes have been unsuccessful for one reason or another. Outside of the Arkham games no other hero has a better track record in the realm of video games than Spider-Man. I look for this one to maintain the same quality as the games before it.

No More Playstation Store Support For PSP

If you are one of many people who are still rocking Sony’s handheld, the Playstation Portable (PSP), mad props and respect to you.

However, it’s probably time for an upgrade.

Sony announced yesterday that on March 31st, it will shut down it’s Playstation Store services for the PSP. Here’s the official press release from Sony’s support website.

On March 31, 2016, the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®Portable (PSP®) system in the SCEA region will be closed. PSP system users will be able to purchase PSP content from the web-based PlayStation Store at store.playstation.com, and also access past purchases from the Download list on their PSP system. Users will continue to have the ability to make in-game purchases from their PSP system.

Select PSP games are also available for purchase on the PlayStation®Store for PlayStation®Vita system users.

Hopefully all PSP titles will be available for the Vita? Only time will tell.

Sony Ends Press Conference With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Sony had a time of it during their press conference and really made the most of it when they unveiled extended footage of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in all its glory.

The seven minute demo saw Nathan and Sully team back up as they almost immediately start off in a firefight of sorts within a confines of a South American street market. As Nathan and Sully make their escape in a jeep they are instantly pursued by a riot van decked out with a turret and have to find a way to shake them. Driving through streets and on top of buildings the pair finally shake the van… or so they thought. The final part of the demo saw the duo speeding down the streets to a seaside with the enemy riot van following close behind. It all ends with Nathan being launching himself out of the jeep and onto the docks as he’s swinging from a rope he latched to a moving vehicle.

The trailer was intense as we even saw some new moves from Nathan use a flying punch to immobilize an enemy while catching their gun in the same movement. Those who can’t wait for the release can hold themselves over with and updated version of the previous Uncharted games in the Nathan Drake Collection, which will be available this October.

Guerilla Games Debuts Horizon: Zero Dawn

2015-06-1518-20-08jpg-bfd57d_765w

Don’t know if Guerilla Games is taking a break from Killzone but if they are, they used that time away to make a new title called Horizon: Zero Dawn. The game made its debut moments ago during Sony’s E3 press conference and it looks really interesting.

The trailer involves a female warrior exploring what looks like an ancient cave and its paintings while a narrator explains the evolution of technology along with the rise of civilization and the fall of the future through nature and its attempt to reclaim humanity’s creations. Through tribes man survived through hunting tactics and combining brand new technologies with ancient designs.

At one point, it looks as though some foe finds the female warrior hiding in the grass and a chase ensues. She takes the dinosaur-like creature out with a knife, and apologizes. Her rest is short as the scuffle startled a herd of robotic deer and out comes a mechanized T-Rex. Unable to escape she engages the T-Rex in combat she uses her bow amongst other things to take him down. No rest for the weary as not long after a mechanized pterodactyl swoops in screeching at the heroine before the trailer ends.

Can’t say I’ve ever seen anything like it (which is a first), but maybe Sony is on to something. It is a beautiful game and one that should entice many when Horizon: Zero Dawn makes its way to the Playstation 4.

Naughty Dog Confirms Uncharted Collection!

It’s no surprise that some games on the Playstation 3 are being remastered for Playstation 4.

With God of War III: Remastered coming out next month, it’s now safe to say that Nathan Drake will be joining the ranks with Kratos on the PS4 and no, we’re not talking about Uncharted 4.

It was leaked through a Playstation Store listing but was quickly taken down until Naughty Dog themselves announced it officially. Here is the Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection.

You get all three titles into one, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, all formatted into one for the Playstation 4. This is a good chance for those who have not played the series before and who want to prepare themselves for Uncharted 4 next year.Uncharted Collection

We can assure that this announcement was supposed to be for Sony’s E3 Press Conference on Monday, but we’ll see what else they have in store for us.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is stated for release on October 9th, 2015.


Me Chibi!Grayson M. is the Editor in Chief of Teh Lunchbox Publications and he hopes that the online multiplayer will be part of the collection.

Summertime And You Know What That Means? – Editor in Chief Message for June 2015

The sun is shining, school is out, your neighborhood pool is open, and you’re being invited to each and every family barbecue. With those things in mind, it’s official…Summer is here! We have another month of huge things happening, so here’s what we have in store for you all!

This month is E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Thousands of developers and studios come together for four days in Los Angeles to bring you the latest and upcoming video games, systems, and projects. To prepare you for this event, we’ll be writing articles or recording videos of what we expect at this year’s show. Also, if you can’t watch any livestreams of either the Bethesda Softworks, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, and SquareEnix, you’re in luck! Teh Lunchbox Publications will be covering it all on Twitter! So be sure to follow us here!

Even with E3 going on this month, we will be having another TLBX Streams event for Batman: Arkham Knight and the release of The Elder Scrolls Online.

For Summer movies, sleep with the lights on after watching Insidious: Chapter 3 or watch a group of actors make it big and spending money while making their agent go nuts in Entourage this week. Next week, we’ll be visiting a park under new management while surviving a velociraptor attack in Jurassic World and finally, see what makes us happy, sad, scared, disgusted, and angry in Pixar’s Inside Out.

You may not see your Fall shows until September but that doesn’t mean there are no great television shows. Hannibal and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black are back for their third seasons with Rick and Morty returning for a second season, but we have new upcoming shows such as Ballers and The Brink.

We have already released a June Anime Movie list here, but some of us are looking at shows such as God Eater, Non Non Biyori Repeat, and To Love-Ru: Trouble – Darkness 2nd.

Remember to LIKE and FOLLOW us on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Twitch for all of your up to date news and information on the entertainment world.

So from me and everyone here from Teh Lunchbox Publications, have a wonderful and safe Summer!
