Can The PS5 Top Its Predecessor?

Published

on

The Playstation 4 vs Xbox One console war was a landslide victory for Sony. With over 100-million units sold, the PS4 is now the fourth biggest selling console in gaming history. With that being said, 2020 is a landmark year for Sony. The much hyped Playstation 5 will launch during the holiday season. It seems now that Sony is only competing with itself.

Not to discredit Microsoft, they can still sell a decent number of next-gen units, and Nintendo always has a large following with it’s exceptional first-party developed games. However Sony is now in a class of it’s own. Numbers do not lie, and this is certainly the case when it comes to the playstation consoles.

With great expectations comes great responsibility. Sony has the responsibility now to push out a console that must top it’s predecessor, which will be no tiny feat. The PS4 was a monster of a system, with numerous AAA first-party games and even an updated version of the console that ran in 4K, it’s hard to imagine how this can be eclipsed. Although wherever there is a will, comes a way.

Sony has been mum on the PS5, we have seen screenshots of the new smaller design, we have even got a
look at the new controller, but in terms of games not much has been spoken of. We got a rather disappointing showing of the new Xbox console, but nothing from Sony, and it has us all in the dark and antsy. Could a big surprise be on the horizon? Or could they really just be playing their cards close? Especially considering regardless of the news they spill, most console gamers will be heading the way of Sony.

Sony has spoken of the new console being backwards compatible, but the question is, what will be the new titles? Will Naughty Dog unveil a new Uncharted character and game? Will Santa Monica unveil a new ‘God of War?’ Also what will Insomniac reveal as an encore to the hugely successful Spider-Man game? The possibilities are endless, and although the new consoles do not tend to “break the bank” so to speak on launch titles, it is exciting to discuss what Sony could unveil for the future.

So how can the PS5 top it’s predecessor? It seems gaming has hit an apex in terms of graphics and movement, some may have some gripes, but boy have we come along way in terms of the capabilities of what gaming can accomplish. Sony has said the PS5 will support 8k gaming, but to what extent will this be? Can they really top the games of this current gen? Only the future holds the key, but when you take a look at Sony’s formula of success, it would be wise not to bet against them.

New Elden Ring Gameplay Footage Has Arrived!

Published

on

The newest title from acclaimed developer FromSoftware has debuted 20 minutes of gameplay for fans!

Gaming as of right now has left me empty. Growing up, I was always looking forward to the biggest titles that will be coming out but now I have lost that energy and have mainly prioritized playing games I missed out on for when I was too young to play them or games I have missed throughout the last decade. The few titles that stood out to me from 2020 were The Last of Us Part II, Hades, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Demon Souls. However, if there is one studio I will consistently buy a new release on day one, it is FromSoftware. In the last decade, this Japanese studio has been on a hot streak with games such as Dark Souls III, Bloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice proving to fans that they want to experiment with new worlds and gameplay mechanics while also having that difficult gameplay curve fans of theirs have been accustomed to. My only advice to newcomers is to give their PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne a try and do not give up, however, I digress. Their newest title, Elden Ring, combines both elements of Dark Souls while also being written by Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Since its announcement trailer in 2019, followed by its second trailer this year, I was gaining more and more excitement from the title while also having some worries/doubts.

Today, the studio has officially revealed its gameplay mechanics and world-building with over 20 minutes worth of new information for fans to sink their teeth into as well as announcements of collectors editions of the game. Judging from the trailer, the game looks like a compilement of everything the studio has built up to: from the world reminiscent of the Dark Souls trilogy to the boss design of Bloodborne and the gameplay ideas taken from Sekiro. Elden Ring not only looks sensational but feels like the first time an open-world game will live up to its potential, making 2017’s Breath of the Wild have some competition. Elden Ring prioritizes freedom and the vast open land of the Lands Between with its very large map alongside its main quest and side missions but also adding in dungeons for players to explore through filled with bosses and treasures to be found within. Elden Ring also displays how summoning will work alongside how PVP and cooperative multiplayer will be used, it cannot be a FromSoftware title without invasions of players ruining your playthrough. Sure, we have only been given 20 minutes worth of gameplay footage but I have a safe chance that Elden Ring will be a homerun from FromSoftware. Personally, I believe it will be the most accessible title from the studio for newcomers of their games while also having that difficulty curve. This is undoubtedly my most anticipated game release of 2022, and I believe that the recent delay from January to late February is perfectly understandable. My fuel for gaming has been rekindled and February 25th, 2022 cannot come soon enough.

Check out the gameplay footage below!

Elden Ring will be released February 25th, 2022 on PS4/5, Xbox Series X/S and PC

CD Projekt Red Announces Cyberpunk and Witcher 3 Pushed Back

Published

on

In a statement released from controversial game developer CD Projekt Red — the company announced today that Cyberpunk and the Witcher 3 next-generation updates will be postponed until next year.

The colossal gaming failure in Cyberpunk will be released in the first quarter of 2022, while the latter will be released in the second quarter of 2022. A huge disappointment for not only gamers, but a company that seems hell bent on trying to make amends for releasing an admitted “unfinished product” in the form of the mess that was Cyberpunk.

The Polish video game developer stampeded its way to global fame with the success of the Witcher 3. The critically acclaimed title has sold over 30 million copies of the game worldwide. The games which are based upon the book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, and are not only critically acclaimed but also spawned a successful series which airs on Netflix starring current Superman actor Henry Cavill.

This led to major hype for their next project, the highly anticipated and highly problematic ‘Cyberpunk.’ A game that was not only unfinished and unpolished, but such a mess that it even offered refunds. Whatever the true issue of the problematic game was, the biggest issue was not only the loss of revenue due to its failure, but the company’s sterling name which had become one of the most respected in gaming.

The company promised major fixes to the title for next-gen consoles, although this was met with much doubt, many gamers still trusted the company could right their wrongs with the title. With the latest setback, it seems many gamers will get off the bandwagon here, and the company announcing such troubling news after a very critical 2021 year — it would seem the company is taking another huge loss in form of monetary value and reputation.

We will update here at Coastal House Media with any new news on this topic.
