Dark Souls II for PlayStation 3: Hands-on: Die Harder on PS3

50°
33w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a hands-on PS3 preview for Dark Souls II on PlayStation 3 dubbed Die Harder below.

To quote: Fear not! Based on my initial hands-on experiences, Dark Souls II is proving to be even more fiendishly challenging than its famously difficult predecessor.

I learned this when the very first enemy in the game, a monstrous ogre-like creature sporting a pendulous gut, lifted me into the air and gnawed on my head like a Tootsie pop. I died kicking and screaming.

After reviving, I opted to steer clear of the brute until I'd found a better weapon. But misfortune struck moments later when I was overwhelmed by a swarm of tiny, mewling dog creatures. Pushing on, I faced a gauntlet of towering undead knights, each powerful enough to cleave me in two with a swing of a massive sword.

After dying repeatedly, I finally zig-zagged past them and through a nearby door. Big mistake: here, perched precariously on a narrow platform, I faced off with an armored, giant boss who swung a halberd with lethal accuracy. Yep, you better believe I died.

Though Dark Souls II wastes no time in throwing the player into the deep end of the pool, its core gameplay has also undergone many subtle tweaks that further contribute to its bruising difficulty level....
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Thief for PS4 / PlayStation 4, Details

50°
34w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on with Thief for PS4 / PlayStation 4 with details below, as follows:

Garrett snuffs out a candle flame as he stalks through the closed jewelry shop, inches away from a snoring guard. While the jeweler toils in his basement and his wife basks by the fire, Garrett slips silently from room to room, rifling through drawers and pocketing valuable trinkets.

Thief on PS4 is at its best when Garrett is left to his own devices, enabling players to vault through windows and pry open cabinets as the master thief himself.

This reboot of the classic stealth series takes a more open-world approach as players prowl the alleys and rooftops of The City, a shadowy nexus bathed in perpetual twilight. The City itself is a visual delight, steeped in long shadows and wavering fires that turn every nook and cranny into a sneaky play space.

And Thief's thieving feels tactile. Coins, jewelry, and other collectibles litter cabinets and line hidden vaults, providing ample motivation for completionists to search every corner and crevice. The more loot you collect, the more resources you'll be able to buy.

One resource worthy of investment is Garrett's trusty bow, which supports many arrow types - some for extinguishing flames, others...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Strider PS4 on PlayStation 4, Details

50°
35w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Strider PS4 on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: The wintry streets of Kazakh City are teeming with soldiers, automated sentry turrets, and terrified citizens.

This striking blend of Russian architecture and dystopian elements set the stage for [Register or Login to view links], which launches for PS3 and PS4 next month. When we first saw Strider running last year, we enjoyed an early look at the PS3 version. This time the PS4 version took the spotlight.

Set in an alternate future of Earth, the world is ruled by the mysterious Grandmaster Meio. Hiryu, the youngest recruit of the Strider program, accepts the mission to eliminate Meio and end his tyrannical supremacy. Hiryu arrives in Kazakh City and is quickly engulfed in conflict.

At its core, Strider is a side-scrolling action game with breathless combat and a near feverish pace. Players explore Kazakh and earn upgrades and powers along the way, which in turn enable them to access more areas of the map.

All the action revolves around Hiryu, who blazes across rooftops, over wires, through buildings, and down walls with an absolute dominion over fear. Anything that stands in his way gets sliced...
 

Sony Goes Hands-on with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

50°
36w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Below are the details, to quote: The heroine of Final Fantasy XIII, Lightning, has faced insurmountable odds to fight for what she believes in. She's challenged the power of the divine, sailed across time, and now stands on the brink of the apocalypse, overlooking a decaying world with lingering memories urging her onward.

In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the developers at Square Enix prepare to conclude Lightning's story with an RPG that, more often than not, defies expectations.

Lightning Returns is a radically different quest than its two predecessors. Both its story and its play mechanics stride forward with little regard for the constraints binding the games before them, and the tropes that govern other Japanese RPGs.

When we first meet Lightning, our rose-haired warrior has been granted the title of "Savior" by the god of light, Bhunivelze, about 500 years after the end of Final Fantasy XIII-2. The world is crumbling under the seething weight of Chaos, and an ageless suffering has plagued its people.

Bhunivelze has decided to fashion a new world and populate it with souls. Lightning must save these souls from the dying world so they might...
