The Order: 1886 trailer shows people messing up their orders

The new Gamescom trailer for The Order: 1886 has a lot of things in it: Fancy PS4 graphics, Nikola Tesla's verbal handwringing, a release date of February 20th, 2015, and lots of shooting up Victorian monsters with big guns,...

New Sony Santa Monica logo looks less like it belongs on an Ed Hardy shirt

Sony Santa Monica, the studio behind God of War and helping hand on a bunch of other things, has a new logo. I like it. It also has more versatility than the previous Ed Hardy scrawl, as seen with the Hohokum color scheme. I appreciate a logo morphing itself to accommodate whatever it's trying to brand. Or maybe that's more subtle and insidious. Looks nice, though.

An all too brief trailer for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

The Chinese Room and Sony Santa Monica let out a quick trailer for their PlayStation 4 title Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and, oh, it's over already? Okay. But there's more to go on. It's June 1984 and, unfortunately, the...

Come buy that for a dollar at PAX East's PlayStation Community Exchange

If you're heading out to PAX East next weekend, you probably have a lot of extra spending money anyway, so why not stop by the PlayStation Worldwide Studios Community Exchange? That's "booth #608" in layman's terms, at the Bo...

Helldivers will let you play every combination of co-op imaginable photo
Helldivers will let you play every combination of co-op imaginable
by Bill Zoeker

Before GDC, we were joined by some of the fine folks at Sony live on Dtoid.TV. Above is a video of us playing an early build of Helldivers with its Sr. Producer, Mark Rogers.

Helldivers is a game that admittedly went under my radar literally until the moment we showed it off on Dtoid.TV. Then I found out it's being developed by the same folks who brought us Magicka. Then I found out, when it comes out for PS3, PS4, and the PS Vita this summer, Helldivers will allow you to play with friends locally, online, and across all three platforms in any combination. I am super down for this title. It seems our cooperative options are narrowing these days, and that's really the only kind of multiplayer I care about.

The Order: 1886: Handsome men with guns & nice coats

I may have been expecting something else out of The Order: 1886, for whatever reason, but I'm settling in to its identity as another cinematic (maybe the most cinematic) cover-based third-person shooter. I think it's all the fancy dress and mustaches that are convincing me. It looks like you beat up Hitler in this gameplay trailer, too. You don't, but it looks like.

God of War: Ascension hitting PSN, no more DLC planned

God of War: Ascension is supposed to be really good, but boy does it feel forgotten this year (it just came out in March!). Sony Santa Monica hasn't forgotten it, though. The team has been pumping Ascension with a steady stre...
