'The Last of Us: Part II' doesn't shy away from violence and gore

The Last of Us: Part II is a violent game. At least, that's the message Naughty Dog and Sony broadcast this morning when they debuted a new cinematic trailer at Paris Games Week. In the video, a woman is dragged to a campsite where corpses hang from trees, their stomachs cut open and intestines spilling out. By firelight, the captors place a noose around the woman's neck and nearly slice open her own gut -- until one of her allies is caught nearby.

Play as Aloy from 'Horizon: Zero Dawn' in 'Monster Hunter' on PS4

Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of this year's best games, hands down. But if you wanted to hunt flesh and blood monsters as Aloy it fell short. Not that taking down robo-dinosaurs wasn't cool, it's just that sometimes when you wanna fell a T rex-looking creature, you jut want to fell one that bleeds. Well, you'll be able to do that in Monster Hunter: World. PlayStation 4 owners will be able to play through the game as the bad-ass ginger huntress as a bonus when the game releases worldwide January 26th.

Spelunky 2 exists! And, really that's about all we know aside from the game potentially taking place in the sky, and you playing as the unnamed original protagonist's daughter a la (spoiler warning) Uncharted 4. Check out the trailer below and see if you can unravel any other clues. The first game was available on practically every platform, and was a driving force behind taking the roguelike subgenre as close to mainstream as it'll probably get.

'Sprint Vector' brings VR foot racing to PlayStation 4

We were impressed with Sprint Vector's unique approach to running in VR: you swing your arms in a way that feels natural and shouldn't make you queasy. However, there were only plans to release a PC version. What about those of us who want to run in the living room? Never fear: Survios has revealed that Sprint Vector is coming to PlayStation VR. There weren't any firm details (certainly not a release date), but it's safe to say you'll want a pair of Move controllers to play this futuristic foot racer, at least as it was intended.
