Though not without flaws, recent video games based on the Transformers universe have managed to win over even the most dedicated fans.

When Drinkbox Studios released Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack for the Vita in 2012, it offered a charming yet challenging puzzle platformer that tastefully incorporated the system’s capabilities.

After Telltale’s phenomenal take on The Walking Dead graphic novels, I was a bit taken back that they were adapting Bill Willingham’s decade-long Fables series. But after completing episode 1, The Wolf Among Us left me “hungry like the wolf” for the next episode.
Originally released in 2012 on the Vita, Assassin’s Creed: Liberation was touted as a companion piece to Assassin’s Creed III, but now that we’ve been exposed to the refreshing and ambitious Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, it’s difficult to readjust to the series’ rudimentary formula.
If you’ve ever watched more than a few minutes of the Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time, then you are aware of its wonderfully, absurd sense of humor. Sadly, Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! doesn’t display the same playfulness of the series
