Originally created and released in Japan on May 27th of 2005, La-Mulana finally makes its way to the Playstation Universe as La-Mulana EX. You’ll play as Lemeza who is on a quest for life itself and the secrets within it. The gameplay is very similar to Metroid as there’s not really one set path to take and no hints as to where you actually need to go though power-ups are available throughout the stages that assist you in progressing in the game and getting you where you need to go. Explore the tombs within La-Mulana and uncover its mysteries through solving puzzles and strategically traversing from one point to the next. The difficulty has been upped in this game from its previous first release so if you had a chance to import and play this game when it first came out, you’ll definitely notice the difference in difficulty, presenting a whole new challenge for you. This game is currently available for purchase on the PS Vita through the PlayStation Store.

Platforming with one character these days is a challenge enough…. try doing so with 2 characters while they’re joined together by an air hose… in space.

Survival horrors usually do nothing for me yet this game seems to really intrigue me with its cell-shaded black and white visual set up. From running into an unknown woman with your car to exploring an old 1930’s styled mansion that she she seemed to have limped off to from the bloody trail you’ve come to follow, you’ll instantly be locked into a world of darkness, exploring the mansion and solving puzzles along the way all while avoiding unknown dangers that are surely lurking within the shadows. Though you don’t know what lies in the shadows, you know something is there. Whether its there to harm you or assist you, that remains to be determined by you. This game is currently available for purchase through the PlayStation Store for the PS4.

Get thrown back into the midst of World War 2, where Hitler decides to bring forth to the table the last card up his sleeve…. an army of undead soldiers and demons swarming to seize, destroy, and conquer Europe and everything within it. Remastered for the PS4, you’ll have 25 weapons to choose from to gun down fleets of undead soldiers and demons throughout 15 missions in either solo or co-op mode.
