Aer

The brightest, happiest, breeziest game trailer of the day belongs to "Aer," a sandbox game from Swedish indies Forgotten Key -- and this is the kicker -- about a girl who can turn into some sort of blue thrush.

This Animorph-style hook isn't just wistful, whimsical, and imaginative -- who hasn't wanted to turn into a bird at some point? -- it also opens up all sorts of neat gameplay opportunities: unrestricted, balletic kineticism is something games tend to be really, really good at.

11-Mirrormirror.070956

With their first trailer for the the oddball side scrolling horror game "Knock-Knock," developer Ice-Pick Lodge has packed in a bunch of mythology and mystery around the upcoming PC release. There's a whole backstory about receiving mysterious mails begging them to create a game based on the concept of blindly stumbling around in the dark, pursued by strangers and monsters, when all Ice-Pick Lodge really needs to do is sit someone in front of the trailer for "Knock-Knock" and they'll be interested.

When I got a chance to demo "Sonic Lost World"
for the Wii U and 3DS recently, one thing I didn't get a chance to see was the 3D platformer's new bosses, the Deadly Six. According to SEGA reps, these villains--accidentally released by Sonic when he discovers the Lost World--are so tough, that our hero will have to rely on the villain Eggman to take them down.

Well, now there's a "choose-your-boss" trailer from SEGA that will let you see what you're up against in the October release.

In "GTA V", have you spent a good chunk of change upgrading your totally sweet ride into something sweeter, which was then saved in one of your character's garages, only to have the whole thing just disappear?

If so, you're not alone. The scenario above has been happening to a lot of people as of late, thanks to an annoying bug.

Yesterday we detailed Valve's upcoming standalone OS that has been engineered to exclusively support their Steam digital distribution platform, and which will theoretically lessen their reliance on other ecosystems.

Naturally, the announcement made headlines elsewhere, across the globe in fact. Like in Taiwan, home of Next Media Animation, a new bureau that synthesizes the news in the of quickly (and cheaply) produced animated vignettes. And here's their take on the situation.

Is the act of playing a game, or even watching a movie, on your iPad while lying down at all strenuous? After all, it's not easy, holding up that tablet… while also being on your back. You're arms can get tired and stuff.

Then say hello to the Goron, and say goodbye to $200 (and possibly extra, for shipping and handling).

Nowhere

"Nowhere," an in-development project by a German two-person studio called Duangle, is probably the most creative first-person sandbox game pitch I've ever heard. A quick and dirty comparison might be something like "Spore," but within a persistent single-player saga.

Everyone was expecting it, but hearing confirmation was good nonetheless: the PS4 will be able to play older PlayStation games via Gaikai streaming technology.

Though President of Sony's Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida recently reiterated a point that was made some time ago, and which many seemed to have forgotten: Gaikai will work on a variety of machines, not just their upcoming console.
