The PS3 has had a strong game line up in 2010 thus far. With the Tokyo Game Show just around the corner I’m sure Sony has many surprises for its fans. Also who cares about motion control? All this news about the PlayStation Move and Kinect is irritating. Why wouldn’t you want to play games while just laying down on your bed or on a toilet seat? Modern gamers are too active, so we’re taking it back old school with the top 10 upcoming PS3 games you can play with a control pad!
10. Agent – Rockstar North
Not much is known about this game other than its developer and how it would be a similar sandbox game like the Grand Theft Auto series. When GTA was released Rockstar had said that they were restricted with how much content to include in GTAIV because of the Xbox 360. So Agent is like PS3′s GTA. We’re always looking forward to shooting up some hoes after the deed is committed. So Agent is a PS3 exclusive to keep a watch on. Agent earns itself a position at number 10 after ridding the world of some whores.
9. Dead Space 2 – EA Redwood Shores
The previous game was one of the top survival horror games to be released this generation. With the sequel confirmed to be released in April 2011. The game seems to take place in a city rather than on just a ship this time around. The developers also have confirmed that the game will have new weapons and much better death scenes. They’ve also confirmed that Isaac’s armor will all look completely different, unlike the previous game where more metal plates where placed on each armor and only the last one being completely different. The developer still hasn’t confirmed if coop will be included in this game as of yet. Hopefully the final boss battle would be more epic and not only will it be slamming its tentacles down and you just strafe left and right to dodge them. Also hopefully we don’t have to fight a vagina again but maybe a penis? Only time will tell. Isaac plasma blasts 9th place.
8. Fallout: New Vegas – Obsidian
If you were a fan of Fallout 3 you will most likely already know this game has been in development for quite a while now. Ever wanted to gamble in Fallout 3? Well now you can, with the developer promising the choices you make will have a heftier price to pay and new gameplay features. This is definitely an RPG to look out for. The game takes place 3 years after the events of Fallout 3. So there could be some similarities in the story. The game is still set in post-apocalyptic times where nearly everything is pretty much destroyed and what you see is just the aftermath. Also the famous radio stations should be back in this one, so I don’t want to set the world on fire, I just want to set a flame in 8th place.
7. Resistance 3 – Insomniac
The recently confirmed Resistance 3 at this year’s Gamescom fights its way to 7th place. Insomniac has learnt from its past mistakes and we all know the list of online modes we had with Resistance 2. What could Insomniac bring new to the table that will shine and overshadow the many shooters out there? Hopefully more will be shown other than a teaser come the Tokyo Game Show this September.
6. Final Fantasy Versus XIII – Square Enix
If you are a PS3 owner and was let down by FFXIII, then you still have hope to feed your RPG hunger once this game is released. With the Kingdom Hearts team working on this , it really looks promising. Also this game won’t be downgraded to fit the 360′s capabilities as it’s a PS3 exclusive. So this game will pretty much prove how FFXIII should have looked or how much the game could have offered at the end of the day. Yet till this day, not even one gameplay video is yet to be seen.
5. LittleBigPlanet 2 – Media Molecule
A very innovative game is about to get a sequel and MM is promising more features such as the player won’t just be restricted to creating only platformer levels, but now can create shooters, role play, adventure and other genres in gaming. With that said, think about all the possibilities that can be created in LBP2! Also all downloadable content from the previous game will be transferred to the new one. What is even better is that this game is slated for a 2010 release. Hopefully slapping people can be more brutal this time round. Sackboy creates his way to the 5th spot.
4. Gran Turismo 5 – Polyphony Digital
The 5th edition to the highly acclaimed racing simulator, Gran Turismo 5. Now this game sells in millions of copies around the word. It’s one of the most realistic and enjoyable racing simulators out there. With a make up over do, the cars and tracks look more realistic than ever! Also we have a game with over 1000 vehicles and a game that has been highly anticipated from the day it was announced. The wait will be over this year, November. You can bet Sony to announce a PS3 bundle with Gran Turismo 5. This title is sure to make Sony big buck buck bucks! This game reaches the finish line at 4th place.
3. Infamous 2 – Sucker Punch
Cole is back and not only with electricity, but with also ice powers….groovy. Not much really has been confirmed on the game other than the game itself of course. Cole was redesigned by Sucker Punch to a more younger looking Cole, why Sucker Punch, why? The voice actor has been changed. Why Sucker Punch, why? Yet from the amount of complaints Sucker Punch was punched at, they have returned everything back to normal, other than the voice actor. Bald Cole is back. Why Sucker Punch, why? (just kidding).
2. The Last Guardian – Team Ico
If you were ever a fan of the classic Ico or Shadow of The Colossus you will know what to expect from Team Ico. A game that’s innovative and something that a game, no other has done before it. From what we’ve seen in the trailers, you get to either control a little boy that takes care of a large god knows what sort of species it is or the god knows what species it is takes care of you. Not much in terms of gameplay features have been revealed for this game as of yet, but you should definitely expect this title to be at the Tokyo Game show as it was nowhere in sight this E3. The Last Guardian nabs 2nd place.
1. Killzone 3 – Guerrilla Games
“But if there are those who deny us peace, refuse us our rightful place in the universe, then we will unleash such terrible vengeance that generations yet unborn….cry out in anguish.” Good old Visari, too bad he won’t be back but Killzone 3 will be. Killzone 3 is already shaping up to be best looking FPS out there. New features such as the jet pack have been confirmed and developer Guerilla have showcased the game in a variety of different environments rather than the overused grey & dark environment. Plus if you’re a rich fellow, you can play this game in 3D!
I hope Rico dies in the first 10 minutes of Killzone 3, damn that character is annoying as hearing announcements about Kinect & PS Move! The Helghan empire VEKTAPEDIA take over No.1!
