The past week has been hectic with all the GDC news coming out. Now that the convention is over, we can focus on this week's new games!
• Yakuza: Dead Souls almost seems too fitting for a game with a trailer like this. I think I could stand it more if our national anthem wasn't blazing in the background like that.
Continue after the break to see the beautiful simplicity in Journey, the ridiculous puzzles in Crush 3D, and some quick fun in Sky Defenders
• This Journey trailer doesn't have to say anything to make me want it. Also, I'm quite fond of that cape. I see some costume possibilities ahead!
• Crush 3D has a unique puzzle element in that you can "crush" a 3D environment to 2D and vice versa . It could be a bit difficult to understand (and see), but if you squint your eyes you can see what's going on in the video.
• Sky Defenders explains that we can "tilt the phone to dodge bots and perform heroic combos." Fancy that. Some games may be getting too easy, guys.
