by 14 comments

We have already seen trailers for both these games, God of War: Ascension and The Last of Us, before but now it’s time to see some gameplay videos. Sony took the opportunity at E3 2012 to do exactly that.

There are some new enemies here but the coolest thing that you see in the gameplay video is the ability to repair damaged environments to their former self and use that to progress through the game.
