I may just buy a PlayStation Vita for the indie games

Some of the most fun I've had at E3 has been playing ports of beloved independent games on PlayStation Vita, a system I do not own but will end up getting sooner than later if this keeps up. Among the titles were Limbo, Hotline Miami, Lone Survivor, Aban Hawkins & the 1,001 SpikesLuftrausers, all of which I would happily pay for again to get a portable version.

Hohokum was the real highlight of the show for Vita -- think of a zen-like, beautiful, lovely-to-listen-to Snake in which you fly around solving abstract puzzles at a leisure pace -- but more on that later. If you happen to be at E3, seek this out in the Sony booth. Otherwise, ready your wallet for 2014.

And then there was Spelunky. Oh, it was a dream come true. Only a few deathmatch levels and the mines were playable, but that was enough to convince me that this is a solid port. It also confirmed to me that Spelunky is probably best played on a handheld system. When does this come out again? I'm going to need a couple hundred dollars.

Review: Blackhole

There certainly have been a lot of creative 2D platform games releasing over the last couple of months, enough that there seems to be some genuine competition in the genre. If you're finding yourself in a position where it has become difficult to choose, allow me to make it easier.  Get Blackhole. Problem solved.more
