    Today, Sony revealed a long list of indie games that are on their way to PS4.

    Spelunky: The PS4 version of this office-favorite will include 1080p graphics, the ability to upload replays to the leaderboards, and more social features in the daily challenge. And the game will feature cross-buy, so if you already have it on PS3 or Vita, you automatically own it on PS4!

    Nidhogg: This competitive fencing game will now let you experience it's muliplayer action with a PlayStation 4 controller. "Exclusive to the PS4 version, the built-in tournament mode now indicates your fencer’s color on DualShock 4′s light bar."

    Axiom Verge: This sci-fi side-scroller is also going to make its way to Vita.

    Source: A Metroidvania-style adventure game.

    Skulls of the Shogun: This update of the stylish strategy game will add a new single-player episode, new Tanuki Monk character, and a new progression system.

    Chasm: A "procedurally-generated RPG platformer."

    Drifter: Also coming to Vita, Drifter is an "open-world, sandbox, space trading game with a procedurally-generated galaxy."

    Chariot: "A 2D, couch co-op adventure platformer in which two players must work together to guide a chariot through underground levels using physics-based mechanics such as pushing, pulling, riding, reeling, and so on."

    Escape Goat 2: You can never have enough goat games.

    Apotheon: A side-scrolling action game made "in the visage of ancient Greek pottery."

    Ironclad Tactics: "A fast-paced, card-based tactics game set in the American Civil War… with robots!"

    Starwhal: Just the Tip: Also coming to PS3, this game has you "navigating your narwhal to tag your opponent’s heart and protect your own. Of course, the narwhals themselves wiggle all over the place in spastic fits of salty marine protest, but therein lies at least half the fun."

    Jamestown Plus: The original experience plus new ships, new levels, and a new chapter in the Jamestown story.

    Rockstar have revealed that a few of their older titles will be affected by the recent announcement that GameSpy's servers would be shutting down.

    Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto IV will still work online, but some of their features will be lost, such as the Social Club's tracking feature. The Social Club is Rockstar's own social platform where gamers can track their progress through games, as well as check out leaderboards and help one another out. 

    Max Payne 3, on the other hand, will completely lose its online multiplayer mode on Mac platforms, whilst the Social Club tracking features will be fine.

    With Gran Turismo 5's online services scheduled to be taken permanently offline at the end of May, developer Polyphony Digital is hosting one last online event that will allow participants to unlock a handful of cars for use in the game's sequel, Gran Turismo 6.

    Beginning late tonight and running through May 30, players will be able to take part in the Gran Turismo 5 Online Event Finale, according to a post on the franchise's website (via GTPlanet). Contained in the event are two stages: one on the Top Gear test track with a 2011 Mazda Roadster TC, and one on the 24-hour Nürburgring track with a 2011 Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motorsports.

    Once you've registered lap times on both during the month of May, you'll need to start up Gran Turismo 6 (pictured above) between June 2 and June 29 while signed into the same PlayStation Network account. By doing so, you'll unlock the following five cars:

    • 2009 Abarth Grande Punto
    • 2011 Renault Sport Megane R.S. Trophy
    • 2008 Nissan Fairlady Z (Z34)
    • 2012 Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance
    • 2012 Subaru S206 NBR Challenge Package

    Polyphony says it "hand selected these cars specifically as they will be very useful in the early stages of Gran Turismo 6." Gran Turismo 5 was released on PS3 in November 2010 and was succeeded by Gran Turismo 6 this past December.

    GT5 is among a handful of Sony's first-party PS3 games, including the first three Resistance games, MAG, and SOCOM: Confrontation, being taken offline in May. In GT5's case, its DLC is being removed from the PlayStation Store, rendering some of it inaccessible after today, April 30.

    Red Barrels have announced the release date for their story-themed DLC for their critically acclaimed horror game Outlast. It will be available for PC and PlayStation 4 on May 6th for North America and May 7th for Europe (on PS4). Red Barrels have stated it will cost $8.99 in North America - pricing has not yet been confirmed for Europe.

    Outlast: Whistleblower puts you in the shoes of Waylon Park, the man who emailed the protagonist Miles in the main campaign. Park is allowed access to Mount Massive as a software engineer to spend a few weeks. While there he develops a deep distrust of the scientists who conduct foul and inhuman experiments on the asylum patients, which prompts him to email many journalists, including Miles.

    We immensely enjoyed our time with Outlast, citing its incredible atmosphere, sound design, and called it a "shining example of the horror genre"; hopefully Whistleblower can continue the trend.
