If it's true that a shooter is only as good as its weapons, Resistance: Burning Skies is shaping up to be a delight indeed.

Take the Mule, a new double-barreled shotgun that dishes out devastating buckshot blasts and launches explosive bolts via its over-barrel crossbow. Or the ever-popular Auger, whose projectiles hungrily chew through walls to seek out warm flesh.

But my favorite gun so far is the lethal Hunter rifle, a long-range Chimeran burst-fire weapon with the ability to deploy an attack drone that you can guide towards your multiplayer foes with taps on the front touchscreen - tres sophisticated!





Playing a series of Wifi multiplayer matches in Resistance: Burning Skies in New York City last week was a valuable reminder that shooting ultra-powerful weapons just feels...

To quote: It's no secret that electronica artist [Register or Login to view links] signed on with Toronto-based Queasy Games to collaborate on the upcoming PS Vita musical platformer Sound Shapes.

But last week we finally tasted the succulent fruits of that creative collaboration.

During a media showcase in New York City, Sound Shapes Producer Jason deGroot kindly demonstrated a new set of levels (a "Record" in the game's lingo) that featured audio effects provided by the mousey maestro and pixelicious art courtesy of indie developer [Register or Login to view links].

You can analyze the results for yourself below - headphones recommended!

It's worth noting that deadmau5's album tracks, such as the pop cut "Ghosts 'n Stuff," won't be appearing in Sound Shapes. And that's by design: the game's interactive soundtrack synthesizes with your platforming progress, making each "performance" a unique arrangement.
