CounterSpy, Hohokum, and Doki-Doki Universe

PlayStation had quite the day yesterday with all of its indie announcements. Earlier this morning they revealed a new supplemental section for the PlayStation Store to better highlight indie projects. Shortly after that they announced three new indie titles!

First up is CounterSpy (working title), which is coming to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and mobile platforms by way of Dynamighty. The game is described as an action side-scroller that has you infiltrate, sabotage, and strike at two opposing super powers in the middle of an arms race threatening humanity.

Next we have Hohokum, planned for the PS4, PS3, and Vita. The Sony Santa Monica project sees players taking on the role of a flying, technicolor, worm kite creature thing. Hohokum is trying to avoid conventional gameplay mechanics and is instead aiming to be "a playground" where you "lose yourself" in the experience.

Last but not least is Doki-Doki Universe for the PS4, PS3, and Vita. It's being made by Greg Johnson, otherwise known as the creator of Toejam and Earl. It will be available as a free download in a limited capacity where you can explore the world they've created. But if you want to actually interact with the characters and the story you'll then have to purchase the game.

As for what it will be about, it's described as a RPG/simulation/interactive story that has you playing as a robot abandoned by his human family. To add to the matter, a green hot-dog looking thing named Alien Jeff informs you that you're an obsolete model due to you not having enough humanity. You then have to travel the universe on a pig, or whale, or poo (whatever you want apparently) and interact with all sorts of life so Alien Jeff can determine just how much humanity you have.

Yup. Totally sold on Doki-Doki Universe. Visit all the links above to get more info on each of these new upcoming titles.

Also technically Sony announced FOUR new indies today, the fourth being Rymdkapsel: Minimalist Space Strategy and You, which we covered in another post.

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.

Who's your favorite female black writer on Destructoid's staff? Post a comment below with your votes.

I'm ok if someone chooses a character's ethnicity in a story with the intent of being more representative, as long as the story is good. And if even SOME people feel like it helps them relate, then good! Don't bother me none.

OK. So the Mad Max game is basically the combat from the Batman games, the driving bits from Rage and the taking over the outposts bits from Far Cry 3 and 4. I guess what I'm saying is that it's super fun and I'm really, really enjoying it.
