Here's more on Airship Q. Hearing about this game for the first time.

Creator: Miracle Positive Co., Ltd.

Game Website: https://www.facebook.com/airshipq

Description:
Airship Q is a sandbox action RPG, where players solve mysteries by controlling an airship in the open sky as a character who has been transformed into a cat. Airship Q is one of the first Japanese sandbox action games delivered by an independent game developer.

Rain falls, water flows, plants grow, and land changes ?
While everything is rapidly changing, the character quickly runs, jumps, controls an airship, digs, builds, fights, and dies. All actions the character takes will create a unique world you could never have imagined.

I could get em on PC for a fraction of the price with more control and graphics options, so I don't. Where's my Japanese games, Sony? Not much on the horizon for PS4 outside of the annual trashcan franchises and indies. I'm worried for my PS4 after Infamous and Ground Zeroes :|

I know right. the system has been out for like 3 WHOLE months. i mean the system has been out for so long that developers should have had AAA games ready to go by now.

holy shit Assault Suit Leynos remake? damn I hope it turns out good, was never expecting to see that come back, loved it back in the day
 
#38
La Mulana on the Vita will be awesome, hopefully it sells well so then maybe 2 will come out on it later on.

I wish the list had higher quality indies though, most of these look like filler.

I'm starting to think for every 10 indie games announced, people think 1 non-indie that was announced is suddenly gone. People don't realize that Sony has already announced more retail 2014 exclusives than the competition.

Anyways, I'm disappointed in the lack of 3D indie platformers and games within the fighting game genre. AAA developers seem to be scared to use some of the unexplored fighting game gameplay mechanics from Bushido Blade, Bleach: Dark Souls, Urbans Reigns Tom & Jerry War of the Whiskers, etc. Sequels to SF, Tekken, KOF, and so on is cool and all, but there's so much potential to make the genre more popular if developers looked beyond the tradition fighting game.
