Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you. Each week I’ll rattle off five games I think you might want to check out this week. Keep in mind, these articles aren’t meant to be comprehensive lists of everything coming out that week so much as a nice rounded tasting menu. So, let’s get to it…
This Week’s Action RPG
Battle Princess of Arcadias (PS3, June 17th)
Battle Princess of the Arcadias is a new side-scrolling action-RPG featuring a very pretty hand-drawn art style. Basically, the game looks like a solid imitation of Vanillaware games like Odin Sphere and Dragon’s Crown, just with less jiggling boobs. Don’t look for this one in stores, it’s only available through PSN.
