Vertigo Comics/Telltale Games

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.

This Week’s Anime Game

One Piece: Unlimited World Red (PS3, PS Vita & Wii U, July 8th)

I don’t recommend too many licensed anime games, because most of them aren’t very good, but the One Piece games are generally pretty solid RPG/Brawlers. One Piece: Unlimited World Red in particular has been picking up some decent reviews, so it might be worth a spin.

This Week’s Retro-Styled Horror Game

Claire (PC, July 7th)

Miss classic Silent Hill? Well, Claire is basically Silent Hill done in a retro 8/16-bit style. As the titular Claire, you explore a nightmare filled world with flashlights and lighters being your only weapon against the growing darkness. Looks like good creepy fun. Here’s Claire’s Steam page.

This Week’s 2D Brawler

Super Comboman (PC, July 11th)

Super Comboman is exactly what it sounds like — it’s about a man who’s super at combos. Super Comboman isn’t quite as cool as some other brawler protagonists, sporting a mullet, pink shirt and weaponized fanny pack as he does, but his game looks entertaining. Here’s Super Comboman’s Steam page.
