This post brought to you by the letter "P."

During their press conference, Sony just revealed a brand new platformer for the PlayStation 3 called Puppeteer. Looking very similar in style to LittleBigPlanet, the game is a very solid-looking 2D platformer with a unique mechanic: Using different heads to gain special powers (seriously, the boy-turned-puppet main character removes his head and replaces it with others), players are tasked with navigating through gorgeous stages, solving puzzles, and defeating massive bosses armed only with a pair of scissors.

Not much is known about Puppeteer outside of its surprisingly impressive trailer, but what was shown looks very promising.

I love 2D platformers, and, outside of the LittleBigPlanet visuals, this one gave me a very Dynamite Heady vibe. And I love Dynamite Heady. Can't wait to learn more about Puppeteer.

PS+ PSA: Puppeteer and Surge Deluxe are free

Tomorrow's Tuesday, which means today is Monday. I hate Mondays, am I right? But while your Monday is guaranteed to not get any better, well, Tuesday won't, either. Life is pretty bad. But at least you can download some free PlayStation Plus games while you suffer through it! Free tomorrow are the criminally underrated Puppeteer (PS3) and the 'what else are you playing on your Vita?' Surge Deluxe.more

Artistry shines in this Puppeteer launch trailer

A few days ago, we posted a series of Puppeteer-ible improvisation theatre. It was as endearing as it was bad. Still, I wouldn't blame you if that weird and unexpected video set didn't sell you on the darling little game, so...more

Sony advertising Puppeteer with bad improv, banana heads

Review: Puppeteer

One has to hand it to Sony. Of all the "big three" console makers, the house of PlayStation is far and away the most open to risky prospects and new ideas. While Microsoft plays it safe with marketable shooters, and Nintendo ...more

Nendoroid Solid Snake comes with a low-poly head

I've never gotten into Nendoroid, but after seeing that Wind Waker Link figure and now this Solid Snake one, all I can say is "send help" -- it's happening sooner than later. The key features here, in my book, are the alterna...more

Onechanbara Z2: Chaos trailer full of tits, upskirts, and murder

Holy crap, that song it goes into around the 45-second mark is so damn bad. Onechanbara Z2: Chaos is hitting PS4 in Japan this October, where it can hopefully help shift some units, as the PS4 library isn't tickling the country's collective fancy. Looks I lot better than the Onechanbara I played on Wii. more
