Downloadable action adventure Blade Kitten puts you in control of the oh-so cute Kit, a female bounty hunter (hmm…sounds familiar) who’s half cat, half hot chick. She also happens to be the last of the Darques, an ancient race of feline folk lost to mass genocide. But rather than getting all wasted on rum-spiked milk and wallowing in misery at her lonely existence, Kit instead makes a living rounding up bounties and discovering all the secrets held within the planet of Hollow Wish, a locale with no need for law and order.
Time manipulation powers are nothing new in videogames, but Konami’s Blades of Time looks like it may be using it in somewhat less-used context. The game’s action-adventure trappings make it like most other third-person hack-n-slash fare, yet with its time mechanic you can do more than simply rewind previous actions...

Among the games on display during Sony's PS3 preview event in San Francisco was Blast Factor, one of the first titles to be available exclusively through the PS3's online service. Pitting the player against malignant microbes at the cellular level, the game plays exactly how it looks: like a cell-themed version of Geometry Wars or Mutant Storm.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend is poised to be the premier handheld fighting game, with a Vita release that's practically identical to the upcoming console version. The roster includes 19 beautifully-animated characters, counting every DLC and unlockable character from previous iterations, plus the sinister newcomer Relius Clover…
The mission: Create a fresh and original World War II game. Sounds impossible, right? At this point, fighting Nazis has practically become its own genre. The team behind flight combat actioner Blazing Angels, however, was determined to somehow make the game's sequel a unique and novel experience for players. Their solution? Start making shit up.
Forget old-fashioned dogfights. In Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII, you can launch a heat-seeking guided missile at your foe, or blast
Why don't Top Guns get any love? Crimson Skies and Secret Weapons Over Normandy were a blast, and we demand more. Ubisoft's WWII era flight opera Blazing Angels is primed to deliver the kind of experience that has been sadly lacking on the consoles for the last year.
Blazing Angels is all about the squad. Players can employ different pilots for different specialized jobs during missions, giving commands to wingmen with a flick of the d-pad. Your squadron divebombs and snap-turns its way

Sony's been making a big deal about its wireless, motion-sensitive Sixaxis controller for a while now, but none of the games we've seen in the PS3's launch lineup seem to take full advantage of its cool capabilities.
