Check out some previously unseen footage of The 3rd Birthday. The video is a collection of footage from the game's teaser site.
I wish more people looked into this game. I personally think Parasite Eve is a pretty good series (I know this is a spinoff of sorts).
Parasite Eve 2 really hurt this series. The first game was amazing.
In a way, yeah. Though the funny thing is, both games garnered similar critical receptions. On Metacritic, the first Parasite Eve is only a few points higher than the sequel.
I thought both PE games were great...for different reasons. Yeah, PE2 felt like a weird mash-up of Resident Evil and Final Fantasy, but it was a solid game and showed that Squaresoft weren't only good at making RPGs. Tbh, I would've loved to see Square give the survival-horror genre a go back when they were popular in the PSone days. They did a solid job.
The reason it isn't called Parasite Eve 3 is because Eve isn't in this game and it would be misleading to call it Parasite Eve 3. Square Enix already stated that this is a main entry in the series and they're planning on releasing more games in the franchise. I guess whether they do or not depends on 3rd Birthdays sales.
Don't worry. I never played the first two games, but hearing about this game has caused me to go searching for Parasite Eve. The game looks good and interesting.
Never heard about this game before...
I'm going to buy this to support the PSP and show SE that it's still a good platform to develop on. I hope many people will do the same.
If game is good, it is a sure purchase. PW is already mine and P3, VC2 are next.
Don't get me started on pw love that game.
I think SE is one of the few Dev companies still regularly making games for the PSP since every game they make on the console tends to sell very well.
I thought it was a wii game because of the graphics.
pe3rd birthday looks sweet, i just hope the controls for targeting enemies wont be using the buttons on the right, if so i want it playable on ps3 so i can use my dualshock3
This looks sweet I was a massive fan of Parasite Eve, loved em. I'll have to get a PSP then lol
