Call of Duty: WWII's Japanese poster campaign sure looks different. Instead of battle hardened troops, it features young folks in dark clothing, holding controllers and saying things like "I'll do anything for my team."
Today, Sony showcased The Last of Us Part 2, the second installation of developer Naughty Dog's gritty survival horror game released in 2013, with a trailer that is very thrilling but almost made me hurl. Seriously - a woman in a noose props herself up on another woman who gets a hatchet buried in her head.
A former employee of the highly-regarded video game development studio Naughty Dog has accused the company of terminating him after he says he filed a complaint that he was sexually harassed by someone else at the studio. In a statement, Naughty Dog says it has no record of these allegations. In conversations with Kotaku, current and former employees say they are shocked and saddened by the entire situation, though they were aware he had a rough time at the company.
A few years ago, it looked like a movie based on the board game Settlers on Catan was on the cards. It's the sort of thing you hear about and think "Huh... that'll never go anywhere". Well it has gone somewhere -- it appears Sony is in the process of "fast-tracking" production of the flick.
So this is weird.
Knack 2 comes out today. It's $54.95 in stores. But right this second you can get it completely free on the Australian and New Zealand PlayStation Store.
