    WayForward is certainly pushing Nintendo portables…well…forward! All four of their downloadable DSi/3DS titles are must haves, and some of the best on the platform. Although they've been making licensed games for quite some time now, it feels like they've finally found their original IP cartoony groove, and I really hope they stick to it.

    Despite the remaining core gameplay issues and the poor commentary, Madden NFL 12 is a great title. While superstar mode needs some work and online franchise could use some love, offline franchise is simply fantastic and is well worth dozens of hours of your attention. If you enjoyed Madden NFL 11 and are a fan of franchise mode, this game is a must.

    Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is one of the best retro games I can ever remember playing. Some gamers might find it to be too short or too antiquated, but it definitely holds its own when compared to the old games that established the series.

    On one hand, it’s a very by the numbers campaign based shooter that doesn’t reflect a whole lot onto the overall lore of the franchise. On the other, it’s a magnificent multiplayer game that’s easily the best offering on the Vita so far. Wherever your proclivities lie in terms of player with others will no doubt change your expectations, but I personally had a blast online with Mercenary, and I think most shooter fans will too.

    But as long as you like rhythm games, turning it away simple because it isn't fun to watch would be a major mistake, as Blitz is one of the most enjoyable rhythm titles I've played in years. All of the nuances involved make it much more interesting than simply attempting to "get 100% of the notes," which is something truly special.

    It’s not a bad action game by any standards, but without the Dead Space name, I doubt this iteration could have even made a splash in the genre. Wait for a price drop unless you’re the hardiest of Dead Space fans.

    At this point, before buying the third map pack, you should ask yourself how much Black Ops you're really going to play before Modern Warfare 3 comes out. While Anihilation has it's strong points, ultimately it's the least exciting of the three, and one casual fans can stand to miss out on.

    Mos Speedrun doesn't really do anything above and beyond the call of duty, but retro fans craving a challenge are sure to find yet another hidden gem in this title. While it isn't as good as, say, League of Evil, it's a pretty solid companion game for any retronauts out there.

    Hearts of Iron 3 is by far the most complicated and in-depth strategy game I’ve ever played. My big issue with it is that I didn’t have much fun with the game after delving through hours of menus: it wasn’t until I actually experienced some combat that the game stopped feeling stale.

    The gameplay improvements are fantastic but, in the end, NCAA Football 13 fails to provide enough to warrant an upgrade over last year's title. While it is still an enjoyable game, much more thought will need to go into this purchase if you are a seasoned veteran.

    Plain Sight is a simple, fun multiplayer game that suffers from a low population base and shoddy maneuverability, but makes up for it with a cheap price tag. It isn't for everyone, but if you love ninjas and robots - with a sprig of Godzilla - you will have a good time.
