PS3Blog.net seems like they are back in full swing, with two great articles coming your way. The first one is about PS3 RPG’s.
Rock avalanches, bridges collapsing, trees and grass swaying in the wind. Forest fires, spectacular spells, and dragons with great flaming breath. Imagine hacking at a foe and having their weapons and armour fly off, bounce off the wall, land in a fire and start to burn. Kick the fire and a shower of sparks blinds the enemy. His leg catches fire, and he goes down in a flury of flames. Or shoot the bridge to bring it down on a boss’s head. Better zooming and rotating. Characters that slip on a rocky slope, and you have to recover.
The sound will be in DD 5.1, so you’ll get the whole surround-sound effect. While this will be great when campaigning by yourself or online, I’m unsure of its usefullness when playing with other friends.
I can’t wait. I love RPG’s, but I am more of a Strategy gamer myself.
