MonkeyPaw has delivered on their number one most requested game from Japan. Side-scrolling plaltformer Tomba! gets retro nerds all excited because it mixes platforming, puzzle solving, RPG elements and pink hair into something that's so unlike anything we see these days. It will be available today as a download on the PlayStation Network

This game was created by Tokuro Fujiwara, the man behind classics like Ghosts & Goblins and Mega Man. This time, instead of ghouls or robots, he went nuts with cavemen and pig snouts. Makes sense.

So, Sony. Not to beat a dead horse, but with all these great PSOne releases hitting the PlayStation Network, isn't it time you made the playable on your newest game system? I'd love to take Tomba! for a spin on my Vita.

Punch frogs, get paid: New Curses 'N Chaos trailer

We got a brief look at the new Tribute Games joint, Curses 'N Chaos, at PAX East. It's a pared-down, arcade-like action game about two players cooperating to clear waves of foes before the timer hits zero. Super simple, but ...more

Aaru's Awakening is all about movement

I’ve been interested in Aaru’s Awakening ever since its announcement captivated me with its hand-drawn art style. It’s pretty hard to pass up playing a game that looks the way Aaru’s Awakening does. Fr...more
