You can watch our run through the mode below, which takes around 15 minutes to complete each time. The default difficulty is fairly easy and the hard difficulty in the all heroes mode, becomes frustrating quite quickly.

LittleBigPlanet 3's Mass Effect Costume Mash UpSam Tyler

LBP3 has a strong tradition of adding popular costume packs from other games, so why break with it?  The pack contains five new costumes for the grand total of nothing that allows you to dress Sackboy and his pals up like various races from the new action RPG.

For all those keeping a watchful eye on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, you'll be pleased to know that the open beta is available for pre-load on the PC through Uplay (with Xbox One and PS4 versions soon to follow). If you're unfamiliar with Wildlands, it's the latest open-world military shooter from Ubisoft featuring customizable characters, weapons, and a sprawling Bolivian landscape that is the largest environment in a Ubisoft action-adventure title. Throw in 4-player online co-op along with tons of missions and multiple ways to approach them, and you've got yourself a party.

LBP3 is the third outing in the 4 player online/local co-op game that is as small, or as large, as your imagination allows.  At this point there is so much content available for the game that you will be able to play all the user content for months, without even thinking about what was delivered.  Sony have produced a trailer for this month's Plus outings to give you a taste:

Sailing the ship requires at least three players, with one driving, one navigating using the map, and one navigating using the crow's nest looking out for dangerous objects in the ocean.

The idea behind LittleBigPlanet 3's challenge levels is simple. Every two weeks a new one is rolled out to the community so players can compete for high scores. Each challenge features a slightly different take on a mini-game built with the LBP3 engine. The first one is a survival type arcade game where you push OddSock above the line and avoid fireballs as long as you can. After that it's a side scrolling race, followed by a punch-happy boxing game. The LBP team promises more challenges are in the pipeline, so if you're terrible at one, just kick back and wait for your day in the spotlight.

For a time, it looked like Capcom had no plans to keep MHFU alive on mobile devices. When the game was pulled the company remained silent on the issue for months. Eventually, an announcement on the Japanese website announced a fix would arrive by spring 2016. May came and went, then Capcom said they encountered difficulties in preparing the patch and named July 10 as the for-real release. Turns out that was spot-on! The fix is now out in both Japan and North America, complete with online co-op for up to four players.

What this means for anyone who is playing the game or plans to pick it up in that country is that you will basically lose all the functionality that makes that game what it is. Specifically, you will no longer be able to upload content for others to enjoy, you won't be able to play or view content created by others, and you won't be able to play with others online. Presumably any DLC you've purchased for the games will be fine, as it is saved to your system, so at least there's that.

Somber piano riff leading to bombastic orchestral track? Check. Emotional dialogue from one of the NPCs about this being "your time?" Check. Establishing shots of bad guys doing bad things? Check. The trailer definitely hits all those "tug at the heart strings" moments, but to its credit, it also makes me more interested in the game.

In addition to the new "Hearts and Minds" trailer, Deep Silver unveiled the "Merits" system on the Homefront website. If you create an account over there, you'll be able to earn some new threads for the co-op Resistance Mode. Simply log in, head over to the "Merits" section to see what "missions" are available, complete them to earn merits, and unlock pieces of the (purely cosmetic) Red Rebel set. Closer to the game's release, you'll be able to link your Steam, Xbox Live, or PSN account to your profile so that the set will be ready for you on launch day.

Based on the narration in the video, each gun will have three configurable sections that allow you to create your own weaponry. You can turn a regular shotgun into a gun that lobs fire at the KPA, or make your pistol into an SMG. This kind of modification will be possible in the single-player campaign as well as the co-op mode. There seems to be an emphasis on using this system along with the special items from the "toolkit" to plan ambushes to take out the KPA rather than go for a head-on fight.
