Visual novels are a finicky medium. It's difficult enough to drum up interest because of their exotic origins, and harder still to find an audience due to their nature -- it's a bunch of reading. And you can't always be sure ...

I'm a dungeon crawler at heart, so any game that throws me into the pits and makes me claw my way out is a good time on at least some level. Difficulty? Unforgiving systems? Bring it on. For me, just about any grind is an enjoyable grind. But even as a diehard genre fan, PS Vita dungeon crawler Demon Gaze tried my patience and resolve.

Sportsfriends is another example of a last-minute Kickstarter save. Although it didn't look like it was going to get funded, fans came together on the final stretch and gave the game a chance -- which leads us into the PS3 and PS4 release this month.

Another month, another LEGO game. These things are starting to be more frequently released than yearly Call of Duty games. And with that frequency comes some caveats, such as this month's title only including the two Hobbit films that have been released thus far.

Of all of the games to get a PS4 remake, you'd probably never put Putty Squad, an SNES game from 1994, at the top of the list. But here we are in 2014 with a full-on re-imagining, with more or less the same platforming mechanics that still work nearly 20 years later. The only problem is, System 3 Software has opted to charge $29.99 for a decidedly dated game -- which is a bit of a problem.

I might've dug into MLB 14 on PS4 a bit for its slow load times, but that's the only slow thing about it. According to the PlayStation Blog, MLB 14 on PS4, "exceeded the previous marks for most preorders, most day-one sales, and most week one sales," and, compared to last year, week one sales shot up 40%. Oh, and what's with the Orioles being the most played team?

The shoot-'em-up genre will never perish, and neither will the Dreamcast.

These The Wolf Among Us accolades trailers that Telltale likes to put out after each episode might not amount to a whole lot more than horn-tooting, but they still feel weighty and worth a watch.
