Congrats to Santa Monica studios…
I just started GOW4 tonight, color me impressed. I’m glad it’s doing so well.
In Japan, Marvelous today announced plans to release Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin both physically and digitally for PlayStation 4.
In North America, XSEED Games announced last year that it will release the game for PlayStation 4, presumably both physically and digitally, and PC.
Happy Belated Mother’s Day…
Some sales this week on PSN…
Does it mean they’ll actually lower the price on their memory cards…or is this the end of the Vita?
God of War is the #2 selling game in Japan so far this month. That, combined with my brother’s suggestion on what game I should play next (which I’m sure is because he wants to borrow it when I beat it), I bought God of War.
I only put in a few hours, and the game so far hits the marks in what I want out of a modern 3rd person action game, tight controls, enemy variety, interesting bosses, RPG elements (skill progression, item/weapon/armor customization, etc.), interesting breaks from the action with puzzles/story and (albeit minor) exploration. Looks beautiful too. Also the story is quite decent so far. And most importantly, it seems to avoid the SJW shit writing that ruined Horizon: Zero Dawn.
I just need to get used to these odd controls (I don’t like melee attacks on the trigger buttons). I’m considering changing them.
The only minus is the 30fps frame rate.
Here is the Japanese release schedule:
- Yakuza 3 – August 9 for 3,990 yen (includes soundtrack download code)
- Yakuza 4 – Fall 2018
- Yakuza 5 – Spring 2019
The remastered releases will have improved resolution and frame rates.

It’s been an exceptional year for games, thanks to genre-defining masterworks like A Way Out, Far Cry 5, God of War, Monster Hunter: World, and Moss.
But 2018 is just getting started. To ring in a new year of incredible new gaming experiences, the PlayStation team is planning a new E3 Showcase — and we’re inviting all of our closest friends. That means you!
