The Daily Hotness: Baby got back

11:59 PM on 08.14.2012 // Steven Hansen

Woah. So much stuff went down today. Is it just me, or is Sony killing it? A bunch of cool looking & new IP, stuff for Vita, talking explicitly about cross play (buying one copy of a retail game and getting both versions), hip trailers for things we know about (like Last of Us), PS1 game Vita compatibility and so on. 

In case you missed it, we also reviewed a bunch of hot games today, including Sleeping Dogs, The Last Story and Darksiders II (#darksiders2). Hamza also dropped some tactical information nukes with two content laden Black Ops II previews that point to some surprisingly interesting things the game will be doing, in turning the multiplayer component into a full fledged spectator sport.

You can check all the gamescom jibber jabber after the jump. Good luck catching up!

Also, in midst of all of this madness, don't forget that Papo y Yo released on the PSN today. It was my favorite game of E3 and one I've been looking forward to for a while. I'm downloading it as I type.

The multiple flavors of the soundtrack found in the options of Crypt of the Necrodancer is one of the coolest things I've ever seen a rhythm game do. Been happily replaying the earlier levels just to see a different artist's take on Danny B's original.

I...I think I may have caused the new Steam sale. I didn't buy enough during Christmas time. Now Steam is coming for me. I can feel its breath behind me already. I don't have much time left. Whoever reads this, whatever you do, DON'T LOOK INTO ITS -

Just discovered this today. 2012 album, solo artist writes it all herself. I'm blown away ... this is like my album of the year so far, easily. Listen to this song until the end, it just keeps getting better. Wow.

Nuuuuuuuu---Just realized that Fire Emblem Fates won't be released in my region on February 19th even though that was what my retailer, and the German Amazon, assured me. You even say that..

New album 4/8/16. This is track 1 on the album I guess. It's not bad. Not the best Deftones ever, but it's still better than nothing new at all. I still like it.
