16w ago - Spry Fox CEO David Edery announced today that roguelike puzzle game Road Not Taken is coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014 alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Hi folks! It's an honor to be posting here for the first time. I'm the co-founder of a studio called Spry Fox.
We've made some well-known mobile and PC games such as Steambirds, Triple Town, and Realm of the Mad God. I'm super excited to announce that our next title - an original puzzle game called Road Not Taken - will be launching on PS4 and PS Vita in early 2014!
Road Not Taken is a game about life's surprises, both positive and negative. In our take on Robert Frost's poem of the same name, you wander through a mysterious forest in the aftermath of a large snowstorm.
As you explore, you'll come across wild animals, impassable barriers, and lost children. Road Not Taken explores the question: "What happens when life's events throw you off the path you expected to take?" It's been a lot of fun for us to try and stretch the ideas that games can tackle!
In terms of gameplay, you can think of Road Not Taken as a puzzle roguelike.
You can play for dozens of hours, and no two sessions will ever be quite alike.
Each game is full of unexpected surprises and dangers,...

In Batman: Arkham Origins, WB Games and Splash Damage are building an online multiplayer experience to complement the main campaign. And guess what - it's really good.
Called Invisible Predator Online, this new mode takes the concept of the earlier games' Challenge Rooms and puts other players into the role of the Joker and Bane's thugs. Yes, this raises lots of questions. The general premise is as follows:
Eight players take to the streets of Gotham in the game's multiplayer mode: three Joker thugs, three Bane thugs, and two heroes in the form of Batman and Robin. The thugs compete to wipe out the other team and capture control points in what plays out like a third-person, cover-based shooter. Meanwhile, the two heroes prowl the playfield in an attempt to intimidate enemies and provoke the gang leaders into calling the whole operation off.
When playing as Batman or Robin, variety matters. Repeating the same takedowns over and over will result in lower...
