$20 Game of the Week: Tokyo Jungle (Playstation 3 Network)


Tokyo Jungle is one of the more unique games lurking around the Playstation Network. It’s weird and sometimes repetitive, but how many games have you played that let you play as a Pomeranian? Well, this title not only lets you take control of a Pomeranian, but you also get to play as dozens of other animals. Tokyo Jungle was released as a retail disc in Japan. However, it came over here as a downloadable title, and is better off for it. While it is a good package, it’s not something most gamers would pay full price for.

Maximum Letdown: Datura (PSN)


Datura stramonium, also known as moonflower and Angel’s trumpet is a genus of flowering weeds in the Solanaceae family of plants. This family also includes Tomatoes, Mandrake, Potatoes, and Tobacco. While it’s used to treat Asthma and nausea symptoms, it can be very harmful at larger doses, causing delirium, photophobia, amnesia, and even death. For this reason, it’s known by another name: The Devil’s Weed. Shockingly enough, unlike marijuana, it’s not illegal. You can grow it, cultivate, and even use it. However, only a complete moron would do so.

So why am I telling you this? Because apparently you have to be high as shit in order to play Sony’s 2012 PS Move title, and even then it still won’t make any sense.

Lost Classics: Reloaded (Playstation 1)


Reloaded, from Gremlin Interactive and Interplay is a sequel to Loaded, a top down shooter for the original Playstation. You (and a friend if playing 2-player mode) choose one of 6 psychotic mercenaries (plus a hidden 7th) as you hunt down Charming Handsome Erudite Bastard, a.k.a C.H.E.B, a madman who framed the mercenaries for various crimes. The characters include The Consumer, a cannibal sexpot, and Sister Magpie, a robot nun. Obviously these characters weren’t very sane to begin with. Your goal is basically to make your way through each mission killing everything in site. This was made before the dual analog stick, but the controls are still responsive. It’s not very cerebral, but it doesn’t try to be. If you want something with a deep storyline and plot, go play some Mass Effect. For classic shooter fans, you can grab this off the Playstation Network for $5.99

Powet Top 5: Top 5 Digital Distribution Services

UbiSoft recently threw it’s hat into the Digital Distribution ring with it’s own Uplay service.

Like it or not, digital distribution is here to stay. It doesn’t have to be a bad thing though. For a PC gamer like me, having my games on Steam and downloading them whenever I get a new computer beats the shit out of having to install all my games from disc and entering in product keys. For a console gamer, you can pick up some of the best current and old-school games without leaving your couch. Heck, for smartphone users, you can access fun games with the click of a button. Console development is leaning towards digital distribution, and PC gaming has already been there for years. Several digital distribution services have popped up, each with their own selection. Here are 5 of the best, chosen by their selection, prices, and ease of use.

$20 Game of the Week: Rochard (PC, Mac, PSN, Linux)

Seen in the most recent Humble Indie Bundle, Rochard is a 2D Platform/Puzzle hybrid in which players manipulate gravity to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Playing as John Rochard, you are on a routine space mining mission for the Skyrig Corporation. However, things go wrong pretty quickly, and you find yourself battling Space Bandits and other enemies as you investigate what’s going on. Your main weapon is the G-Lifter, a gun which can manipulate gravity to life objects. You can also control gravity to allow yourself to jump higher, and alter the trajectories of objects. Each of the game’s puzzles revolve around gravity, same way as Portal’s puzzles centered around teleportation and physics. The gameplay is easy to pick up on while challenging enough to keep you engaged. It’s available on Steam and PSN, but you can grab it as part of Humble Bundle 6 until Monday October 1st at 7pm EST.
