Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Alec Meer)

From South Korea – that nearest of neighbours to the world’s most notoriously oppressive regime – comes Replica [official site], a short game about paranoia, censorship, cruelty and the smartphone generation.

The indie game Papers, Please may come to Vita. Creator Lucas Pope says he'd like to put the game on Sony's handheld, but isn't sure whether he should field it directly or pass it off to someone else to port.

We've seen the promo shots of the Steam controller and heard generally positive reactions from indie developers, but we haven't yet seen it in action. That changed today, with a demonstration video that shows the prototype being used to control games ranging from the generally console-friendly shooters to more PC-centric titles.
