There are a few different philosophies that developers subscribe to when making a sequel. Some make wild design changes, some make iterative improvements, and some leave the basic pieces intact while expanding the narrative.&...

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.

Tomorrow's Tuesday, which means today is Monday. I hate Mondays, am I right? But while your Monday is guaranteed to not get any better, well, Tuesday won't, either. Life is pretty bad. But at least you can download some free PlayStation Plus games while you suffer through it! Free tomorrow are the criminally underrated Puppeteer (PS3) and the 'what else are you playing on your Vita?' Surge Deluxe.

Looking for something to play on your PS3 or Vita? Maybe both? Curve Studios is bundling four good games at the budget price of $15. $13.49 for PlayStation Plus members. All four games are Cross Buy as well, meaning you get access to the PS3 and Vita versions. Not bad. The four titles in question are Proteus, Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor, and Stealth Inc.

Project X Zone seems like something that probably shouldn't exist. It's a strategy role-playing game sporting an expansive all-star cast of prolific characters from the combined libraries of Capcom, Namco Bandai, and Sega. That sounds more like the stuff of fantasy than an actual game you can play. And yet, here it is.

At first I thought this was going to be an animtronic prop when I came across it at PAX Prime 2013 today. And then I saw the arms moving and realized it's a real person. Perhaps it was inspired by this art piece?  In any case, this was the most WTF moment of any PAX I've ever been too.

Pokemon is such a strong franchise that even most of the spin-offs can stand on their own. The core generational releases are among my favorite RPGs, but the Game Boy Color Trading Card Game, the Mystery Dungeon series, and Pokemon Snap are some of the most enjoyable games I've ever played due to the amount of care that goes into them. Then there's the Pokemon Rumble series.
