PlayStation 3 Recommendations


Barbaloot – Who ever has looked at a fighting game and thought “this is far too complex for me. i wish there was something much simpler.” Well, friend, Divekick is for you. Everything in Divekick is done through two buttons, a gimmick that feels like it would get old fast if it wasn’t so well designed. The game basically boils down to spacing and angles. It couldn’t get too much simpler. The whole game is a deconstruction and satire of fighting game culture, so expect to see a healthy spattering of memes and references throughout. Don’t let that deter you though, the game still has plenty of depth to go around. Not to mention it’s simple but charming artwork, and very good ost, and I think you’ll be falling in love in no time.

Guitar Hero: World Tour

Barbaloot – While nowhere nearly as popular as it’s older siblings Guitar Hero 2 and 3, this iteration is still an excellent inclusion to the series. The first to adopt the Rock Band model of having multiple instruments, this is as much of a party game, more so even, as the other titles. The music selection can be a bit dumb sometimes (La Bamba and Eye of the Tiger comes to mind), but otherwise has an excellent setlist to rock the absolute fuck out to. (Hot for Teacher, Vicarious, Mr. Crowley) With the ability to customize even your instruments now, this is quite the jam!
