Erik from The Gamer's Lounge was lucky enough to attend PAX South 2016. Here are some of the top Indie games from the show. These are titles that gamers need to keep their eyes on.

Dragons Quest Builders, the Minecraft inspired new IP from Square Enix dominates the software chart this week across 3 Sony platforms with the PS Vita version taking the top spot. Hardware also sees some changes with the top 2 spots for PS Vita and PS4 respectively.

"I’ve recently been playing Knack in my PlayStation 4, and while it isn’t a terrible game, it isn’t a game that would have urged me to purchase the brand new system when it arrived. I’m enjoying the game, but it isn’t like a Halo or a Resident Evil that pulls me to buy certain consoles."

Like the first game, there are crystals called Syega that allow humans to use magic. People (well, mostly women, also like the last game) in a distant land are researching the powers of this substance to see what more can be gained from it. Zizou, a goddess, decides that what they are doing is dangerous, and sets out to stop them. Honestly, the plot is pretty simple, and hardly earth shattering; indeed, there are only minor differences from this plot and the last game. It's the rest of the...

With the 20th anniversary of Pokemon this month, Cinelinx takes a look back at the gameplay mechanics that have defined the franchise all these years, and the adjustments that could make them even better in the future.

"Available only via digital download, Unravel follows the adventures of Yarny as you guide him on a heartwarming adventure trying to re-connect the memories of a long lost family. Don’t let Yarny’s cute appearance fool you; this unique physics-based puzzle platformer will make use of Yarny’s thread in clever and creative ways, which will keep you on your toes."

Detailed today, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens brings an in-depth journey through the latest Star Wars blockbuster. Providing a deeper insight into some of the film’s most memorable moments, we’ll be given the chance to build, battle and fly through the galaxy like never before.

Join Nathanael and Robert this week where they talk about Rise of the Tomb Raider, Crashlands, Murdered Soul Suspect, Just Cause 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Minecraft: Story Mode, Minecraft, Rocket League, LEGO Batman 3, Kingdom Hearts 2.5, EA, Mighty No. 9 and more!

The Etrian Odyssey series returns once again, as Atlus bring a re-imagining of Etrian Odyssey II to the Nintendo 3DS with Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight.

Crash Landed delves into this latest role-playing, dungeon-cralwer.

This week sees the release of Yakuza Kiwami across PS4 and PS3, which takes the top 2 spots in the software chart. Other new entrants in the chart include Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS), Just Cause 3 (PS4), Resident Evil Origins Collection (PS4), Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster (PS3) and MuvLuv Double Pack (PSV).

Yo-Kai Watch is a great JRPG entry onto Nintendo’s 3DS that is both very well constructed and makes proper use of both screens in order to enhance the experience. With plenty of Ghosts to do battle with and against, the exploration of this town plays host to many different adventures both big and small which are only the start as the second and third chapters are still yet to come.

Luke Kemp writes- Shigeru Miyamoto (the creator of Mario, in case you don't know what videogames are) is still at Nintendo today and, although he's climbed through the ranks until he's almost at the very top, he still gets his hands dirty helping to make games wherever possible and is still regarded as an electronic god by people both within and without the industry.

With all that having been said, your main takeaway should be that Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is more of the same. Sure, it adds some new bells, whistles and mechanics into the fray, but they don’t do enough to change the core gameplay, or really make that much of a notable impact. They’re simply layered on top of a game that is good, but not great, and one that is similar to a fault.

Yo-Kai Watch, the Japanese cultural phenomenon is now available for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. With the power of the Yo-Kai Watch, you can find and befriend more than 200 hidden yo-kai, found everywhere in the world, and call upon their powers when you need their help.

Come find out why Yo-Kai Watch is unlike any other monster-collecting role-playing game to date.

"The game's name tells us a great deal about what we will be doing: Slick It! This was clearly a mobile game at one point, not unlike other titles that have you swiping your finger across the screen with your phone - or in this case using a stylus with your 3DS. The basic premise works, and it gnawed at the puzzle-solving corner of my mind, encouraging me to just do one more - until I had finished it in just a few lengthy sittings."

The first full week of 2016 sees no new releases with Monster Hunter X topping the charts. The Capcom mega hit is now over 2.5M sales in Japan only. On the hardware front, 3DS is on top with PS4 in second place.

"Stella Glow is Atlus’ most recent title in their list of grid-based strategy games. Those of you who’ve played Luminous Arc for the Nintendo DS may notice some similarities between the two games right off the bat, such as the main character archetype and battle style. Those who haven’t played luminous arc may find a better comparison to the fire emblem or Disgaea series. Stella Glow blends a mix of storytelling, music and gameplay to produce a setting that’s sure to draw you in."

In the end, Ocean Runner is a cute game that’s easy to pick up and play anytime, and anywhere. My kids enjoyed it and my daughter and I were competing on who had the current high score. Her score is the highest at this point in time. The price is a reasonable $2.99 on Nintendo’s eShop and I recommend it for anyone that likes Finding Nemo or endless runner games.

Radiohammer is both entertaining to play as well as it is to listen to. With many different tracks and stages to complete with their own objectives and increasing difficulty there is more than enough DJ swinging of justice for everyone that wants a piece of it. While the lack of story is a bit disappointing with how much fun it really could have been past the few lines of dialog that are present, the gameplay and the music make up for it in their own way as they create a constant enjoyment wi...

NPD has released information on the best selling video gaming titles of 2015 in Australia and New Zealand. Activision’s Black Ops 3 is the best selling software title across both these regions with Halo 5: Guardians, the sole exclusive title making an entry on the Australian chart.

This week the gang is back and they talk about Fallout 4, Disney Infinity, Just Cause 3, Yo-Kai Watch, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Star Wars Battlefront, Steamworld Dig, Portal 2, Minecraft Story Mode, XCom: Enemy Unknown, Amplitude, Oculus Rift, Star Wars and more!

In the end, Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is cute, but it has some flaws. Before being given a review code, I purchased the game on sale for $10 and at that price it’s worth getting. Any Peanuts fan should keep an eye out for this title when it goes on sale.

Several months ago the Amiiqo device was released that gave you the ability to copy or emulate Amiibo’s. The big drawback to this device was you had to own an Android phone with NFC capabilities. But the folks that brought you Maxlander (for Skylanders) have now released their Amiibo device, NaMiiO. How does it compare? Check out our review!

The popular card game that has already been hit with a range of console titles will be expanding as it hits its 20th year milestone. Konami have confirmed that we’ll be seeing Yu-Gi-Oh! on a larger range of devices inlcuding console. We’d be very surprised if Xbox One wasn’t one of those.

Family Fishing has some interesting ideas, but they get lost under the weight of needlessly complicated controls that are poorly explained and wasted on a game with no real depth. The lack of content and background story make this a light game that fails to motivate you to come back for more once you have fiddled around with it for a short time.
