If you own a PS4 and are in the market for a break from the AAA titles coming your way, Xeodrifter on your Vita is a great throwback to the 8-bit gems of yesteryear. And if you, like me, game exclusively on portables, then Xeodrifter will be a fantastic bookend between JRPGs and the odd Nintendo title.
I’ve been looking forward to playing Xeodrifter for a long, long time. I’m a big fan of Mutant Mudds, which I played on my 3DS XL *gasps*. I’m a sucker for 2D platformers (3D platformers BEGONE!) and this seemed like the perfect fit for me.
Already a success on Steam and mobile phones, Heroes of Loot is coming to PS Vita on September 22nd, according to a PS Blog post by Abstraction Games, the house porting the game to our beloved handheld.
There’s a reason I’m writing this review only a day out of hospital. “The Swindle” is a game that I really, really like. I have fun with it. I think that if you like side-scrolling adventure games, you’ll have fun with it, too.
I really wanted to like this game. And maybe that’s the whole moral of the story: Just like everyone else, I wanted Octodad to be something he’s not.
I have to say, I’m liking this game. This is an experience closer to what I wanted Criminal Girls to be. It’s long, but it doesn’t feel repetitive. There’s decent enemy variation, locations change and the battle system evolves.
It’s not perfect, but… I am having fun with it. And that’s usually a good sign.
Another week, another sale, and this is a big one! At least in terms of numbers, as PlayStation is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a sale that spans its history.
What does that mean for Vita and PSTV? Mostly, a mix of legacy titles and some of Vita’s greatest hits.
