Ruin

@ Amazon

BUY NOW

As I was putting this article together, I complained that there didn't seem to be an RPG available. (I like lots of gaming genres, but the RPG is probably my favorite.) And then up popped Ruin for preorder. Ruin is a full-featured hack-and-slash RPG.

Ruin is a social-action RPG which makes use of the Vita's connection to the net. It has another cool feature - you can play ruin on the PS3 or Vita and transfer your games! How cool is that. You're playing at home, then need to travel, not problem - save your game to the cloud and resume on a different device.

PS Vita Fighting Games

Street Fighter X Tekken | Reality Fighter

Street Fighter X Tekken

BUY NOW

Street Fighter X Tekken for the PS Vita combines two very popular fighting game series - Street Fighter and Tekken. I've played games from both these franchises from the beginning. Cole MacGrath from inFAMOUS in in there too - it's a real fighting game mashup!

I love to spend an hour or two playing a fighting game, but I prefer to go head to head with another person. I'm not yet sure if you'll be able to play Street Fighter X Tekken in 2-player mode - I hope so.

The Vita needs a fighting game and this looks like a great formula.

      I have a Ps Vita and uncharted is just amazing ! I really regret the fact that there are so few games on this console; and you make me think I should add some handheld console games on my 'best games' lenses. Anyway, great lens !
