The sequel to the 2010 360 and PC original follows brawler Ghat on his return home to confront former friends and team up with old foes. Described best by publisher Atlus as stonepunk, the surreal action title features melee combat, upgradable stats, and weird, weird characters.
Born Ready Games has deployed Strike Suit Infinity, the new standalone arcade-style score-based shooter featuring the mechanics of Strike Suit Zero.

An enhanced re-release exclusive to the PS3, The Director’s Cut includes all of the content of the 2010 Xbox 360 original plus a brand-new scenario, improved visuals and controls, and support for upcoming downloadable content.
Things just got weird. Or, a lot like my childhood. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, the standalone 80s-themed expansion to the very non-80s-themed Far Cry 3, is available for consoles and PC. The $14.99 download, developed by Ubisoft Montreal, is a wink, a nod, a nudge, and a high-five to the 1980s, with the world looking as if it was recorded off a VHS copy of Excessive Action 2: Island Assault. Players take on the role of Sergeant Rox Colt, a Mark IV cyber commando that is “part man, part machine, all American,” on the hunt for a former commander gone rogue. Naturally, the game features Michael Biehn.
