Hopefully I'll be able to get into this. Need to finally try Blue Toad as well.
Rynx  +   1571d ago
I tried the first Episode of Blue Toad after you beat it once, there is NO replay value, unless you want to go back to get all the trophies.

Hopefully this isn't the case for this one.

6.5$ for PSN+ members, this game and Amy (12$) are almost giveaways.

I am not a big fan of that chocolate, shinny look of character models. I like to see some "noise" applied to models so there is some texture in there!

Anyhow, this game certainly looks interesting and I am kind of surprised that it is a PSN game only.

I know most of you are going to disagree with me but there is something about this trailer that reminded me of Bioshock and Andrew Ryan.

Looks interesting. But I can't help to think of how much more interesting this would be if it was a "point and touch" adventure on NGP instead of "point and click" on PS3.

Another game I think would be awesome on NGP would be Machinarium, also a future PSN title. And also a point and click title on PC.

Funny thing about that, i wish that some PSP titles were on the PS3. Download only with a few tricks and minor upgrades, some available console exploits, but still a PSP level game. $20-$30 PS3 minis rather than $5 PSP minis.
Bull5hifT  +   1570d ago
When i saw that word machinarium, it bought me
Back to when i read about a game called Metronome on the PS3 then that word boght me back to Pokemon' Clefairy , that i remembered a TM called that, gunna google it ...... Yeah the psp God of Wars and Metal Gear Peace Walker should jump to ps3....im interested in Little Big Planet on NGP, making a level and then porting it on LBP2 or 3

The thing that gets me blusoops is that point and touch games on the NGP should be Move enabled games on the PS3. Point and click games with the Move would be very nice.
blusoops  +   1570d ago
Totally agree about move support.
R834  +   1570d ago

Beat me too it - this game (and any point and click game) would be great on the Move.
MrDead  +   1570d ago

Dont get Blue Toad save your money, I thought it was going to be like Monkey island or Sam and Max but its not.

I can say without a doubt in my mind that Blue Toad Murder Files is the worst game i have ever played and I've been playing computer games since 1988.

Red's voice actor is very dull.

Saul will have his own spinoff game, Watch, you'll see.

Okay, the voice acting seems pretty dreadful...
but it's a point 'n' click adventure game, set in a gritty dysotpia, plus a lot of the puzzles in the trailer look really interesting in how they're interactive; kind of reminiscent of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. It depends on the reviews (I don't want to spend money on something that everyone says is a piece of crap), but I've definitely got my eye on this.
lodossrage  +   1571d ago
that right there is the problem today with people
everyone wants an opinion spoon fed to them rather than having an opinion of their own. If it's a download game, see if a friend has it and play it. If it's a retail game, rent it.

But bottom line, don't let a "reviewer" that has no clue who you are or what you like tell you what's good and what isn't. Just because everyone else on the planet may not like something doesn't mean YOU won't.
Acquiescence  +   1571d ago
I believe in a consensus when it comes to video games...
If everyone calls a game crap, then there's a good chance it actually is crap and not worth spending money on. Games are far less objective than other mediums like film or music, and a flaw in the graphics or controls or camera is a flaw no matter how you look at it.

I don't want an opinion spoon fed to me, I just want to know if the product I'm interested in is worth buying.
lodossrage  +   1571d ago
But the argument isn't about a flaw. The debate is whether a person likes or dislikes a game off their own merit or just because others told them to.

Every game has their flaws. But again, just because everyone else tells you "it's bad" doesn't mean you'd feel the same way if you tried it for yourself
strifeblade  +   1570d ago
lodossrage... I think Acquiescence just owned you
lodossrage  +   1570d ago
I fail to see how I was "owned" but you children today see and think what you want these days.
DrFUD  +   1571d ago
Hopefully 9.99
No more than 14.99
19.99 and nobody buys it
Rynx  +   1571d ago
I won't even buy it at 14.99

I don't like how that is the standard price now for most of these PSN games.
Pixel_Pusher  +   1570d ago
seems to have a lot of detail/thought to it so I think $15 for a game like this is kind of cheap but we'll have to see how long the SP takes to complete.
OtherWhiteMeat  +   1571d ago
Red Johnson’s Chronicles.....sounds more like a movie that would air on Cinemax after 11 o'clock.

It looks pretty good, unfortunetly April 19th is not a good day for PSN titles with MK9, Portal 2 and Socom 4
Godchild1020  +   1571d ago
I agree, but it might be a little lighter for those that can't afford those games on release. A lot more painful on the wallet for those that want all three or at least one of the retail games plus one or two psn games that release on the same day.

Youre right but like me If it would have been released this week I would have propably bought it but next week Ill have enough with those retail games so Ill skip psn games well at least for now. It all depends on the situation I guess.
waterboy  +   1571d ago
psn downloadable games for ps3 look like this and theres really talk of ps3 being maxed or "outdated" lol i find no credibility in such nonsense
Emilio_Estevez  +   1571d ago
there is no credibility in your logic either, go figure.

Yeah, by the way... This is not a PSN exclusive. It was also set for release on the Xbox 360 and PC. It will have its debut on the PSN though, that much is true.

This game will be rated M as I heard the guy Saul drop an F bomb.
Manberg900  +   1570d ago
LOL Red Johnson? Really? Sounds like a genetal disease.

nice that made my night right now

Why do all black people in video games sound like racial caricatures?
Relientk77  +   1570d ago
I wonder what will be the cost of this game, it does look good and pretty big for a downloadable game. Ill keep this one on my radar
RAmar101  +   1570d ago

Red Johnson's Chronicles??
Is it a game, or a porn flick? 0_o
rezzah  +   1570d ago
This doesn't look like a game that I would enjoy.

I rather psychological games rather than detective games. They can be similar I know.
SnakeShady  +   1570d ago
Something in this game reminds me Shadow of Destiny for Ps2
Inzo  +   1570d ago
Red's Johnson ;)

The picture above looks like Link.

Looks really awesome! Had no idea what to expect.
Der_Kommandant  +   1570d ago
Looks Fresh

I'll definitely give it a look
ian72  +   1570d ago
It looks good, but I'm not into point and click games. I have Broken sword 1 and 2, and did enjoy them, the story was great, I just don't like the point and click gameplay.
The people who do like these types of games though, this looks quite good, and hopefully a great story too. I hope its a game that you can really enjoy.

Not bad for a PSN title.
