One of these days, I will buy a PS3. And then I will disappear from this earth for a month or two while I complete Uncharted 2, Demon’s Souls, Valkyria Chronicles, and now PixelJunk Shooter 1 and 2. The new trailer posted today for the new game just enhances the feeling of nostalgic love I had for the original. Lava, monsters, great 2-D art, and they’ve even added some sweet multiplayer modes.
I hope that, as the PixelJunk series swells in numbers, the developers don’t try to make it too much like other games in order to get more sales. I’m sure they know it’s their original vision and art that make it what it is, but I imagine there’s always the temptation.
In the meantime I’m going to throw my 360 out the window before long if I can’t get past these goddamn elephants in Mega Man 9. Any tips?
