Unfortunately we have had a few teething problems this afternoon, therefore we've perhaps not been quite as on the ball with the news as usual. Not to worry though because we always have Evening Newsround to catch up.

So let's see what we have missed.

Epic Mickey 2 will be released on Vita next month

Epic Mickey 2 is coming to PS Vita. The game comes with new features such as new touch controls, ad hoc network functionality, the ability to control paint, thinner and Oswald's electric beam, as well as being able to make use of the "orientation-based controls" for the camera and while driving.

The game is out June 18.

Dying Light announced, developed by Techland

Techland, maker of Dead Island, has announced a new game for current and next gen consoles known as Dying Light.

The game is described as 'first-person survival horror with a Mirror's Edge-style free running mechanic,' which sounds interesting. Apparently the game will feature a day-night cycle set in a "vast" open world.

Techland boss Pawe? Marchewka said: "The next-gen technology allows us to create a truly dynamic open world that features a game-changing day-night cycle.

"Inventive free running mechanics also allow for nearly unrestricted exploration and weapon-crafting to further enhance the action survival experience."

This could be one to watch out for.

Sony talks The Witness for PS4

Another thing M$, are back tracking about the used games fee, claiming that the previous reports were wrong, and they are still finalizing the policy, strange considering how certain the people giving the reports seemed to be, and what is there to finalize if there is no fee?

Dying light could be interesting but i would like to see game play first. If it does have mirror's edge gameplay feel to it i would think that would be nice. But i rather see mirror edge 2 i love the 1st game so much even tho it was underrated witch i don't understand why it was new & refreshing gameplay wise & i thought the story was well written too. It would be music to my ears if mirror edge 2 was confirmed at e3 here's to hopeing.

I laughed when I saw Dying Light screens, as it looked indistinguishable from Dead Island visually. Will be interesting to see how it ends up.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
