It's been a bit of a slow month, presumably because the end of August is looking more ridiculous than we can ever remember (more on that in a few days). But it's given us a chance to catch up with a few titles from earlier in the year (and 2012 is some cases) and get stuck in to a whole bunch of deliciously awesome games flying slightly below the radar.
NB. We'd have liked to have included Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. and Pikmin 3 on this list, but after promising to send them, Nintendo failed to do so, thus we have no idea really of how good either of them are. You'd think, given the ailing nature of their home console, widespread timely coverage of their only first-party would be a good thing
Project X Zone - Project X Zone is an utter delight for fans of... well... pretty much every game from Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai. Hilarious dialogue, innovative hybrid RPG strategy, a massive character roster and eyecatching combat conspire to create a crossover so recklessly insane that it probably has no right to exist.
But we're so very glad it does. - 8/10
Wyv and Keep - Fantastic fun alone and an absolute riot in co-op, Wyv And Keep is one of the feel-good sleeper hits of summer 2013. If you're a fan of logic-based puzzlers and classic platformers, don't let this indie gem slip under your radar. - 8/10
Stealth Inc. - Stealth Inc's title may have been watered down, but this is otherwise a gorgeous and full-fat revamp of Curve Studios' majestically brutal stealth platformer. Vita owners should waste no time in jumping on board with one of the best (and only) exclusives of the summer, while cross-buying PS3 players have no excuse not to start dying, swearing and dying some more. - 9/10
So if you want to bag a copy of Stealth Inc., all you have to do in order to get involved is to finish the following sentence: "Stealth games are awesome because...". Pop a little blurb into the comments box below and job done.
The competition will close on Mon 5th August at noon.
