Don’t stop believin’

So we haven’t posted in a while but since I’ve just spent my bank holiday gaming I thought I’d give you all an insight into what I’ve been up to. We’re talking about the rise of downloadable games on consoles having recently been playing Journey on the Psn and trials evolution/walking dead on xbox 360.

I’m gonna start with trials as its a game that needs little introduction you’re a bloke, you have a motorbike, you ride, you balance its all great fun. The introduction of multiplayer gives this one an edge over its predecessor but its essentially the same balance of frustration and satisfaction. Trials hd more or less set the bar for early xbox live arcade titles and this addition certainly does not harm red lynx’ claim to the crown of best arcade producers.

The walking dead is a great tv series (admittedly season 2 features way too much talking and not enough zombie stomping) and with the recent popularity of zombie games it made sense that it would arrive on consoles sooner or later. To be honest this game surprised me the gameplay, storyline and graphical style were not at all what I expected that said I loved it. Not a run and gun/smash zombie shooter as you would expect but a really cleverly put together game that has more in common with monkey island than left4dead. The graphical style owes more to the comics than the show but I for one think that’s a good thing and it shouldn’t put any of you non comic readers off. Little more than two hours of story driven point and click esque adventure and I cannot wait for the next part. Telltale games are really onto something with this episodic installment idea. Well worth 400 Microsoft pacmen.

Finally we move over to the ps3 for their spin on the downloadable game. Journey, the latest title from thatgamecompany (the developer known for a more artistic direction) whose previous titles flow and flower, while solid games never really set the world alight, have crafted a gem here. So beautiful to look at, emotionally invoking and a joy to play this brilliant (if short) title will leave your jaw slack with amazement (much like Kayley Cuoco’s skimpy outfits on the big bang) I don’t want to give too much away because you really should experience it for yourself. I met a few other players through the course of my 1.5 hour playthrough but I really connected with my final partner (I dubbed him four-stair) whom I met halfway through and saw out the rest of the game with. 10 squids may be a little steep for a short experience but I found it to be well worth it and I think the whole affair will stick with me for much longer than even your average 60+ hour rpg offering.

These titles make the dlc on offer from studios such as bioware look embarrasaingly over-priced. In short the future is bright for download gaming.

Elth out.
