Papo & Yo Hands On Preview

Jason checked out this unique title last night and was blown away by the experience. Check out his impressions!

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- Coming 2012 to PSN exclusively

- Chalk lines on sidewalk with a Child

- Cardboard box houses

- Kid picked up boxes - able to reassemble houses irl to make a path

- boy and friend monster

- monster eats poison frog for energy, turns evil when he does

- platforming puzzles, light team work

- the boy seemed to almost be raising the monster, and interactions with the monster would open up progress.

- At one point, the boy lured the monster into a square chalk line with food, and a giant cardboard box appeared around the monster, like what one would keep a pet in.

- Monster looks like a pink rhino with big shoulders.

- After trapping him in the box, a few buildings submerged underground, opening up more of the pathway.

- At this point, you had to lure a monster onto a chalk-like switch, and use a toy robot he's afraid of to scare him into standing still to progress.

- Anyway, after that you feed him the giant poison dart frogs, he goes on a rampage, and the demo is over.

I'm very excited to actually get hands on with this game. The title alone intrigues me so much.

I didn't get the chance to see it on the show floor today, but I did get to see Bastion, an awesome indie title. I'll be working on some quick audio impressions of that pretty soon now that the floor is closed.

Dark Souls II Review

Masochistic is a word often associated with the Souls games. Though they’re known to be incredibly difficult for anyone who may be new to the series, they’ve become only mildly challenging for veterans. However, Dark Souls II is no pushover, proving to be difficult as soon as the journey begins. Even in the most basic tutorial area, players will find death waiting for them. Whether you fall into a hole you overlooked or walk past an enemy who is able to catch up to you for an easy backstab, Dark Souls II isn’t afraid to kill you mercilessly. Although the game never feels cheap, it always finds a way to lure me into a well sprung trap in which I am ill-prepared for. Difficulty isn’t the only thing in which the Souls franchise is known for though, and Dark Souls II gives us another beautifully crafted world that’s perfectly ripe for exploration with rippling lore waiting to be uncovered and dissected.
