Anyway, i played a little bit of Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken today on my PS Vita, mainly just to clear my head and try to focus on something else other than real life problems. I played this game a little bit on my vacation to Disneyland, and I kinda of liked it then, and I kind of liked it today.
It's a 2.5D platformer, as the kids are calling this kind of genre these days, where it's not quite 3D but it's more than the standard, flat 2D experience. You play as a chicken, whom from what I gather, has a serious bone to pick with an army of other chickens and birds, who are stylized a bit to look kind of like Nazis. Bold move, but effective in making them clearly the enemy of the game. In actuality, the game feels and reminds me a lot of Shank or Shank 2, if you are familiar with those games.
It's actually quite violent too, considering it's a lot of bird-on-bird violence. More so than I expected, I guess. It's not a bad thing, it's just a thing.
So yeah, it's available on the PSN for both the PS3 and the Vita, although I think they are bot exactly the same game, but quite similar. They aren't cross-buy either, so watch out for that, since the PS3 version came out long before the Vita version did. If you're looking for a shoot'em up 2.5D platformer, especially if you have a thing for poultry, this game is right up your alley.
