    The latest from the Retro City Rampage studio, this Grand Theft Auto style take on capitalistic business models is worth a scope.

Think Smash TV and early GTA gameplay and humor with property/business management. A+ fun. I haven't bought many indies but was sold on the retro appeal by a trailer on the official PS Blog.
