A horizontal space ship shooter combined with a rhythm game - played in reverse! It sounds crazy, but it actually works remarkably well. The colors are really bright and flashy - almost distractedly so at points, and it runs really smooth. The gameplay itself is unique, and makes you think about what it means to be a shmup or a rhythm game, and how there's really rhythm in every game genre. There are several difficulty levels, a challenge mode, and leader boards to keep you busy. Check it out!

 Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - Xbox 360
"I had a blast with this game's story, characters, world, and its gameplay just like all the other Borderlands games. However, with no real tweaks to the overall formula, it feels more like an expansion to Borderlands 2 than a true sequel/prequel. The engine powering the game is also starting to show its age." - fasttquick

 Borderlands: The Handsome Collection - PlayStation 4
"This collection contains both Borderlands 2 and all the DLC released for the game and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with upcoming DLC support, making this the definitive game to get if you don't already have the games on other consoles. The only thing hampering this package is the dated tech powering the games. Be prepared to see a lot of Unreal-esque loading textures and other occasional oddities." - fasttquick

 Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection - PlayStation 3 - PC
"Since its emulation, you can't really call these "ports". That said, you get three classic arcade titles for one low price." - sherberttcat

 Atlantis - Atari 2600
"This game looks really good for the Atari 2600. And every time I look at the cartridge it screams PLAY ME!" - snarlaggtheoverlord

 Batman: Arkham Origins - Wii U
"This is a great pick up from Amazon at $15. The graphics and the game play is improved over Arkham City (which I didn't think was all that possible). Gotham city is loaded with fighting from the get-go, and I find that fun. There are a few downsides though. It doesn't seem as if stealth is as important as it was in the last game. Also, the Wii-U controller is adapted for this game as was Arkham City. I'm having a ton of fun with it though, so I highly recommend this game!" - dschult3
