For the Greater Good!

Freedom Wars is an interesting yet widely unknown IP Sony has created as a psVita exclusive. By gameplay standards it takes a stab at the "Monster Hunter" genre, while having some tricks of its own. Most of which is the game's overall "theme"... or the presentation of its world. Whether you've heard of this game or not, let me assure you - its a big Ol' slice of ORIGINALITY PIE.

Delicious original pie

Freedom Wars is set in a future where all human settlements are giant prison city states, or Panopticons. Watching and hearing everything... each panopticon controls what its citizens do. These Panopticons are in constant fights with one another to gather what little resources are left, be it materials or people. The player takes the role of a "sinner" which are the soldiers of the panopticons, where you either raid enemies or defend against them. read more

Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero is the 4th in a platforming series that I was slow to play, but quick to love. Made by Wayforward Games - who are obviously cool... brings us back to Scuttle Town as a sleepy Shantae hears a voice warning her of coming danger. Being the hero that she is, when that danger comes around she jumps right in to save the day.

Half genie, Full fun.

This entry into the series has a new HD graphics styling that looks great while having tight controls like games of the past. This allows you to hair-whip baddies as easily as Shantae wiggles her hips. Characters you find are steeped in equal parts charm and comedy. The music is also nothing to overlook as it saturates each location into a character of its own. read more
