PlayLink arrives on Gamersyde

PlayLink arrives on Gamersyde

Hardcore or core gamers are not the only targets for Sony and with a concept like Playlink, they are clearly trying to appeal to a wider audience. With tiltes like Who are You?, Knowledge is Power or SingStar Celebration, party games are back if you have friends to share them with and a smartphone (or a tablet). More surprisingly, two more story-driven experiences are also proposed in the PlayLink range, with Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier by The Imaginarium, and Hidden Agenda by Supermassive Games (the makers of Until Dawn). Though we're not quite sure such titles are meant to be played cooperatively or competitively, it's still interesting to see Sony try something else. Check out our videos inside.

Hidden Agenda - from the creators of the amazing Untill Dawn, my fiance and I had very high expectations. That we shouldt have.... this may very well, be the most boring game we have ever played. Nothing is happening - like AT ALL! And every time you are asked to find clues, the game tells you what to look for. Seriously?

And the fact, that you control the game with your phone is even more stupid. Specially when you own a Sony smartphone (Z5 in this case) because the phone gets unbelievably hot and drain the battery in no time!

it's not really made for 2 people sadly. it's more of a party game. there needs to be a certain degree of conflict between where the narrative goes for it to work. 2 people don't really achieve that.

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Trinity is still there sadly.. I actually want them to ditch supporting characters all together... Lara needs to be alone. That's what makes Lara who she is! (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth there's no way around the street-fighter-syndrome with ensemble movies, and some characters and parts felt just put in to keep the characters relevant/warm (hello Black P) Other than that it was great (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth his journey, while the other are mostly just popping in. Really great character and story-arc. For once a bad-guy with a good motive. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth watched Avengers 3 yesterday. Was better than expected as i'm not a big fan of royal rumble mashups. What held it all together was the story of Thanos. In many ways this is his movie as we follow (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that should at least push you forward and help you look past lara croft herself being lame. (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i just want a better game than rise ended up being. hire some decent writers. ditch the trinity tedium. introduce some characters that are interesting. (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: i get the impression we'll just get an extended Cgi trailer and gameplay won't be seen until E3. hope i'm wrong though. (8 Hours ago)
