"One of the weirdest games released for PlayStation consoles this month was Hohokum, an artful little gem from Honeyslug and Sony’s Santa Monica studio. The game has a non-linear design that has caused some gamers frustrations while it’s opened up a door for a new way to enjoy the zen-game genre by attempting to actually speed run through the game. That’s right, someone has done a speed run of Hohokum. It’s like drinking a lot of coffee and attempting to speed meditate as a shaolin monk."

Since Sony announced that Trophies would be mandatory way back when, trophy hunters have been pounding their games trying to become the ultimate trophy hunter. This may seem completely fine to some, but to others it seems like trophy hunters can't just stop and admire a game.

Our Perspective
Trophy Hunters will argue until the end of time that Trophies are awesome. Most of the time they ensure that you do every little thing in a game, although some are watered down like Far Cry 3 where o...

Table Top Racing was developed by staff who have previously worked on the popular Wipeout series. This game was released in January 2013 on iOS and came to Android a year later. While these versions are both free, they offer in app purchases to buy gold instead of earning it through racing. The Vita version has an $8.00 price tag and offers the same ability to buy in-game currency.

"One of the members of 4Chan managed to stream Hotline Miami 2, and another member recorded some of the gameplay tidbits so gamers get to bask in the awesomeness of the game’s soundtrack and gameplay, shortly before the game becomes available for everyone else at all the usual places. Bask in the awesomeness, please."

"Sad news for gamers who have been desperately awaiting a follow-up RPG to the age-old Earthbound (better known as Mother to hardcore fans), as Atlus has announced that Citizens of Earth, the crowd-funded RPG that was picked up by the publisher, has been delayed. Luckily, the delay isn’t huge as it’s only been pushed back by a month from October, 2014 to November, 2014."

GG3 writes: "There is a Playstation Vita exclusive at Gamescom 2014 that released some footage and it’s called The Hungry Horde. This title is a combination of zombie genre, mini-games and cute graphics."

GG3 writes: "Sony didn’t give a lot of attention to the PS Vita during their Gamescom 2014 conference. In fact, it was hard to spot at all. They did, however, make a montage of a dozen or so titles."

This is a brand new trailer released by EA Sports focusing solely on how goalkeepers have been improved overall in FIFA 15. Goalkeepers now read and react to the game a lot better than in previous titles and are able to pull off astounding reflex saves. The computer AI has been improved and keepers will now decide whether to stick to their goal mouth or rush out and sweep the ball away.
Realism is what we want and that is exactly what EA Sports are trying to give us. There are new ways t...

Tony Polanco over at dualshockers.com found himself lucky enough to demo the Playstation Vita's upcoming Tales title, Tales of Hearts R. Polanco's initial worry was that a Tales game wouldn't feel the same on a handheld device, but was quickly relieved with its smooth battle system, quality graphics and dialogue. Polanco goes into depth about his gaming experience, but in retrospect enjoyed the experience thoroughly, wishing he had more time to play.

A brand new teaser trailer is out for the upcoming Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Not only do we get to see a little more of Batman, he's also joined by a few friends in this hilarious teaser.




At the end of the trailer the fashion critique is interrupted by a mysterious purple glow and someone cackling loudly. This is a glimpse at the new villain in this new Lego Batman title and the trailer finishes with Batman and Superman speeding off towards the purple glow.

This includes Road Not Taken from Spry Games and Fez from Polytron Corporation for the PlayStation 4; Crysis 3 and Proteus for the PlayStation 3; and Metrico and Dragon’s Crown for the PlayStation Vita."

Two phenomenal warriors lock horns in battle but who do you back to be the last man standing? Darth Vader of course has his lightsaber ready to wield and he also has a great understanding of the force and can use it to cripple his opponents. His weaknesses lie underneath that mask of his. Should it be removed during the battle, he would struggle greatly and well...without his robotic arms and legs his mobility isn't that great.

Master Chief doesn't have a lightsaber handy but does have an...

I am still kind of surprised that Zen Pinball 2 is a thing. But it is great to see them continue to release new content for the game so that it gives gamers more of a reason to keep playing. Zen Studios has announced that Guardians of the Galaxy will be making its way to the PS3, vita, and PS4 for Zen Pinball 2. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon will join together as they go onto an epic pinball battle on July 29th for only $2.99! Here is a look at the trailer:

The next installment in the Phantasy Star series received a gameplay video recently, showcasing some battle action. Phantasy Star's release date is unconfirmed, but will have a demo sometime next month.

Watch the full gameplay video here:

"The list includes many games that have been announced but also a few surprises including Until Dawn and the PS3 classic Journey. Many figured after the critically acclaimed Flower made its way unto PS4 last year, that Journey would do the same and it turns out they were right."

"There’s a cache of crazy games that never come to America. Crazy… crazy games. Sometimes, those crazy games find a publisher close enough to the edge of sanity’s precipice that they reach a point where they say “Screw it!” and they actually publish a niche game that causes gape-mouthed reactions and wide-eyed responses from anyone who dares play such a thing. Well, XSeed Games is one of those publishers and Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed is one of those games… and it’s coming to America for..."

OlliOlli is a fun and addicting twist on the skateboarding genre, but I don't believe that it really has the leg-power to keep up with other frustration-inducing indie titles like Spelunky and Crypt of the Necrodancer. However, if you enjoy quick games with a challenge in the vein of the Trials series, then this game will definitely be for you.
