The Daily Hotness: Baby got back


11:59 PM on 08.14.2012





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 Weekend Hotness: I'm reading the sh*t outta One Piece

Despite its being the best-selling manga in Japan, I never jumped aboard One Piece. The weird, noodly art style had always turned me off, so I never bothered giving it a chance. Then one day I said to myself, "Stop being a li...more
