Sony Goes Hands-On with The Last of Us for PlayStation 3

50°
103w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with The Last of Us for PlayStation 3.

To quote: I've finally played a chapter from Naughty Dog's eagerly awaited post-pandemic survival tale, and the first thing I want to say is this: The Last of Us is not a shooter. Well, not exactly.

Though Joel packs a pistol, you'll count yourself lucky to be holding more than 10 bullets at any one time. Most times you'll want to avoid fights by sneaking and hiding. In other, more desperate times you'll pull the trigger with a feeling of great reluctance - all the while praying that you don't miss.

The ultra-tight ammo supply imbues the game with a primal, high-stakes tension that brings uncertainty to every decision you make. One thing's for sure: this is one mess you won't be able to shoot your way out of.

"The Last of Us is not a shooter."

As I guided Joel's group around the dilapidated fringes of post-pandemic Boston, I saw constant reminders of Naughty Dog's legendary attention to detail.

Step under a trickle of water and Joel will raise his hand to keep his head dry; knock an enemy near a wall and Joel will pin him there to deliver a staggering punch. The environments also bristle with detail.

Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender Free This Week on PlayStation Mobile

50°
103w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney has announced today that Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender is free this week on PlayStation Mobile.

Below are the details, to quote: Normally, you wouldn't expect cats, milk, action and water to go together. But in the case of PlayStation Mobile's fourth free game give away, it does. Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender is available for free this week.

This action-oriented, side-scrolling shooter puts you in charge of a team of cats whose mission is to search the depths of the oceans for massive reserves of tasty milk buried underground. This game is a side-scroller's dream and reminds gamers of the intense action, cool music, and colorful graphics of the 16-bit gaming era.

The founder of [Register or Login to view links], Dugan Jackson, had this to say about what influenced him in designing Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender for PlayStation Mobile.

A lot of games from my younger years certainly have influences on Aqua Kitty. Amiga games like Turrican, Rainbow Islands, New Zealand Story - as well as late '80s arcade games such as R-Type, Raiden, Mr Heli and In The Hunt - all great examples of fantastic pixel art design which have fed back into my own art style over the years.

In terms of gameplay, we have a few...
