RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Sony Gamer's Day 2007

The Goat



Folklore

No, Folklore isn't the goat, I am, because I sacrificed most of my would-be time with this game to a three hour Warhawk session. I'm not worthy.

But judging by all the buzz surrounding this unusual adventure, Folklore seems like a story worth telling.

Apparently, you capture the souls of enemies you've defeated in battle and then unleash them against other enemies.

We know, that sounds like lots of other games, which may be why we never tore ourselves away from the battlefield to check it out. But evidently you physically rip the souls out of things by yanking on the Sixaxis controller - possibly the best idea for a motion control ever, this soul ripping.

We'll tell you more, as soon as more of this folktale unfolds.



The Entrails



I saw much more than I've mentioned in this feature, including Devil May Cry 4, Lair, Hellboy, Stranglehold, Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow, SOCOM, Pain and PlayStation Home, but the games covered in this feature were the stars of the show, as far as I could tell in my brain-blasted state. That doesn't mean the rest weren't awesome or couldn't be the stars of another, less spectacular extravaganza, but it was hard to see anything past the brilliant, blinding light of Warhawk, LittleBigPlanet, Uncharted, Folklore and God of War. Oh my.

So I'll leave you with this: Since the PS3's haphazard launch until a few days ago, Sony's system seemed like a bad ass gun without any bad ass bullets. Well, now it's loaded, cocked and aimed directly at the coming holiday season. Cover your ears but not your eyes, because the PS3's lineup just got even more intimidating than its price tag.
