Clash of Puppets is a 3D platformer with an unabashed love for B-level horror movies. As we enter the dreams of an average Joe named Charlie, a veritable monster mash appears before our eyes. Vampires, Frankenstein, and even mummies try to snuff out our hero, but with a little guidance Charlie may find his way back to reality. Staying trapped and seduced in this world, however, is a hard habit to break.
While the first-person shooter field has had its biggest stars show up year after year, Guerrilla Games has always used a patient, tempered approach when releasing new entries in the Killzone franchise. Even though it's been around for nearly as long as Microsoft's Halo series, Killzone hasn't quite reached the same stratospheric status among gamers. With its latest entry, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Guerrilla once again revisits the conflict the villainous Helghast bring wherever they go, only this time it's in conjunction with the launch of a new Sony console. Though the choice of exclusives was slim at launch, Killzone: Shadow Fall is a more than worthy way to kick off the PlayStation 4's emergence. Even if it is a bit dull at times.
With another Disney movie comes the inevitable onslaught of tie-ins and merchandise.

Let's check it out and see if it will give you a satisfied smile like the best of Disney always does.
Mobile game movie tie-ins can be instantly forgettable, as these apps' sole purpose is to plug the feature's impending release. Anchorman 2: Scotchy Scotch Toss is far from an ambitious foray, but Ron Burgundy's sheer presence should save the day.
Forget the black infused back drop of Icycle: On Thin Ice's title screen, since everything about this game is colorful. Starting with its James Bond inspired opening sequence, this app reels you in with all its pretty pictures, illustrating a surreal dreamscape where bicycles fear to tread. Adventurers, however, may love the thrill of the chill.
The dragon riding rail shooter has returned! At the helm of Crimson Dragon is Yukio Futatsugi, who was the director of the first three Panzer Dragoon titles. Alongside Panzer series composer Saori Kobayashi, Crimson Dragon has taken up the dragon rider's mantle which hasn't been occupied since Panzer Dragoon Orta was released in 2002. It looks like Sega has wanted to leave the series alone, but an oppressive industry hasn't stopped rambunctious, dragon riding heroes from rebelling, right?
With the recent debut of the Xbox One, much of the gaming world has been rather anxious to see what sort of titles would start off the indies race on Xbox Live Arcade. And starting off for the Xbox One we have Lococycle, the newest, next gen offering from Twisted Pixel Games. Twisted Pixel Games is a small development company based in Austin, Texas that got worldwide recognition from their previous Xbox Live Arcade titles 'Splosion Man and The Maw.

As Gran Turismo 6 is about to come out in just a couple weeks, Microsoft Studios wasn't going to let the Xbox One pull up to the starting line without a console-exclusive racing title.
