HALO: 5 GUARDIANS AND PARIS GAMES WEEK – SHOW NOTES
Whats up? What’s new? Shoe laces, Taco Bell, Cats, and Gamestop Pro Tips are discussed. Pixel Pulse Radio (PPR) has launched on iTunes Officially (and MANY other podcast aggregators), and we are stoked. Brief reminder before the show starts: send in ANY question/comment that you want read on the show to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Xbox One Dashboard Experience launches November 12 alongside Backwards Compat:
PS4 has sold 29.3 million consoles, still outpacing PS2 in their relative timelines. METEORIC!
Paris Games week has come and gone and Sony held a conference which revealed and showed off a ton of games. We don’t have a comprehensive list, we merely talk about our personal highlights of the show:
Boundless (minecraft-esque) is coming to PS4/PC. Really interesting worlds/concepts –
it looks promising.
Michel Ancel’s new game, Wild, looks really interesting. Alex is enthusiastic about what what was shown, while Brandon does not see the mass appeal.
We briefly touch on Dreams (Media Molecule) and No Man’s Sky (Hello Games), which
are both set to release in 2016. The latter having a launch window of June. We have
been waiting for a No Man’s Sky and finally got one. Is it too late? Have they shown
Horizon: Zero Dawn looks unreal. The world looks interesting and alive (kind of). We
appear to have a system seller on our hands! Time will tell.
From the creators of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls – both of which were revealed
as coming to PS4 – comes Detroit: Become Human. This is a David Cage joint. Detroit
has had an industrial revolution and is now known for being a robot city, home to many
androids. Discrimination and segregation are rampant. This game feels emotional. Alex
offers his voice-over skills to David Cage.
