We rarely review XBLA games on Gamersyde, mostly because we don't have time, but in the case of From Dust I would have loved to take the time to write a 10 pages review explaining in details why this game is pretty much unlike any other game out there, and why you SHOULD play it. Unfortunately, I won't have the time, so my impressions and a few videos will have to do it. Still, go buy this game! Update: Launch Trailer added.
As you may have guessed already, I absolutely adored From Dust. Here is a game that takes a genre that everybody thought dead (God-Games) and add to it a simply mindblowing terrain and physics engine, with a light but sufficient story to help the player get the hang of the various powers associated to its divine excavator. Finishing the story mode at 100% should take about 8 hours, and the challenge mode, some of them quite difficult, adds quite a few more hours to that. The only downside is that the rendering is clearly done at a sub hd resolution, resulting to a slightly blurry image quality, but so many hours of discovery and wonder for 15 euros? No one that understands that games aren't just online shooters should pass the opportunity to play something like this!
VR is struggling enough to gain traction as it is. I don't think the different camps gaining exclusive support will help either. (42 minutes ago)
ResEvil 7 looks like it could be a fun game in VR. Sony moneyhatting the game for 12 months exclusive VR support (like many other games as well). VR is the new arena for exclusivity (44 minutes ago)
