Reply::Just like “innovative” and “revolutionary.”

PLAYSTATION ALL-STARS BATTLE ROYALE
* Vita version announced and works with PS3 version. I want Kazuma in this game!

* Fighting game style levels for super moves. Sounds good. Stage being played on features Hydra boss from GoW1.

* RT @JimSterling: This IS just Smash Bros. But I am pretty okay with that.
Reply::I wish more were also fine with that.

* Nathan Drake in PS Battle Royale. Not a surprise. Now Kazuma? That would be a welcome surprise.

* A Bioshock Big Daddy too, I guess. Not exactly gets me thinking “PlayStation.” Kazuma now!

* Crowd gets bribed with free year of PS+.

WONDERBOOK/BOOK OF SPELLS
* Oh no. It’s Move time.

* J.K. Rowling mention for Book of Spells gets a cheap pop.

* Person doing the demo of Book of Spells is doing her best Zorro impersonation.

* Kratos rebuild structures ala most recent Red Faction game.

* Kratos wrecks large elephants.

* Next March 12th! THIS IS SPARTA!

THE LAST OF US
* It looks similar to Uncharted with a slower pace. I guess it is Naughty Dog.

* “He’s got a fucking gun.” *gets shot* “Are you okay?” Don’t these characters know it’s just a flesh wound?

* Face of enemy meets cabinet. *applause*

* The Last of Us. Bringing you point blank shotgun face destruction.
