This game's pedigree is flawless - Lemmings was first designed for the ancient Commodore Amiga back in 1991, and went on to fill its mantelpiece with every conceivable videogames-related goings on. Updated versions were released over the years until recently when Team 17, developers of the almost-equally-classic Worms, took over the series and managed to come up with a superbly reworked PSP version that's one of the handheld's finest puzzling titles. Now it's a shiny, ultra-budget PS3
LittleBigPlanet may be the best game Nintendo never got around to making. There’s the fuzzy little mascot, colorful worlds, a charming story and an unending barrage of innovation. It’s Nintendo to the core; except the core is made by Media Molecule and it’s on a Sony console.
The first time we realized what sorts of things LittleBigPlanet 2 was capable of, it was like staring into the deep end of a pool from a high-dive: there’s an immense depth to it, but knowing what you have to do to get there can be intimidating. LBP2 introduces tools that make the original LBP look antiquated, introducing potentially complex logic circuits, Sackbots that can serve as secondary characters or gameplay-altering avatars, and even the ability to create and direct your own cutscenes.

In lieu of a proper sequel to their classic PSP puzzler, Sony have released this spin-off that you can buy from the PlayStation Network for less than the price of a sandwich. Rather than tilt the world to control your LocoRoco pals, as the PSP game, in Cocoreccho you guide a butterfly around the screen with the right analogue stick and lead them through the level. At certain points you can tilt or shake the controller to get past obstacles, and “call” the LocoRocos and
Based on all the different parties involved in its creation, Lollipop Chainsaw was overflowing with potential. Unfortunately, not all of it could be fulfilled, but that doesn't mean the newest Grasshopper game is completely without merit. See how this cheerleader vs zombies adventure earned itself a passing grade...
Eradan, the human ranger, drew back his bowstring and
unleashed a flurry of arrows at the charging orcs. His shots hit their target,
though the foes continued to rush. Some stopped to fire off ranged attacks of
their own, but their missiles bounced harmlessly off the elven Loremaster
Andriel’s protective magical shield. Finally, once they were close enough, the dwarven
champion Farin met them on the field of battle, hacking apart the orcs. He spun
around, slicing down the smaller goblins in a powerful swing, before finishing
off the larger enemies with the help of his allies. As their bodies fell in a
heap of blood and limbs a large, angry troll burst out from behind a cave wall.
It took the combined forces of all three warriors (and the aid of a giant eagle,
summoned by the trio) to take him down.
