Shoot spaceships to phat beats in Retro/Grade on Aug. 21

The jury is still out on whether Retro/Grade is a shooter in the mold of a rhythm game or a rhythm game in the mold of a shooter, but you'll be able to have your own say when the game comes to PlayStation Network on August 21st. Personally, I'm leaning toward it being a rhythm game but the genre-blending is part of the game's appeal.

I was impressed by the game when I played it at Fantastic Arcade a year ago, so it's exciting to see it come together in this new trailer and screenshots.

SteamWorld Heist's first screenshot leaves me wondering
