    After my first playthrough (which took around 6 hours), I felt a bit underwhelmed. As in I literally thought to myself - that was it? But then after going through a few more times, I realized how fun taking different paths could be.

    As a core game, Revelations proves that the 3DS can not only display amazing console quality graphics, but control just fine as a handheld; with or without the optional circle pad add-on. Revelations comes up short in many respects, but ultimately it may be enough to scratch that Resident itch until Raccoon City and RE6 hit later this year.

    Stick it to the Man is a really weird game, and that’s part of the reason why I enjoyed it for what it was. It’s like watching a particularly dark episode of Duckman or Rocko’s Modern Life, and while it may not be as classic as the subject material, it’s still definitely worthy of the same conversation. I kind of just wished it knew what it really wanted to be.

    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.

    Mercs 3D is a pretty fun title, and diehard Resident Evil fans will no doubt eat it up like candy while waiting for Racoon City and Revelations. However, if you're not a Resident Evil junkie, you should stand clear.

    As a big fan of Borderlands, I hate to say it, but great ideas, good intentions, and a sexy NPC just aren’t enough to overcome the frustration present after the beginning of Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot. This one is impossible to recommend for 10 bucks.

    Zero Gear brings a tried and true kart mechanic to the PC, which can be extremely fun in short bursts. However, spotty controls and a lack of variety in weaponry and environments can quickly turn a session of Zero Gear into repetitive play that only die-hard kart racing fans would find enjoyable.

    Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins is a game with more ambition than its platform of choice can handle. Extremely long loading times hamper its portability, and instead of bustling LEGO metropolis, you’ll spend 8 hours or more in a LEGO ghost town.

    To put it bluntly, Return to Ostagar is five dollars and will last you one or two hours. It poses no real challenge or overall benefit in experience and rewards. The best option would be to investigate the weapon and armor received, and see if it is worth the five dollars. However, for me, I can’t help but look around the corner at the expansion and see these upgrades as useless for my end-game characters.
