OPOONA

Throughout Opoona, your task is to lead the game’s eponymous hero throughout his quest to reunite with his family who were seriously injured and lampooned after crash landing on planet Landroll. Opoona and his family are Tizians (from the planet Tizia); a legendary people that have fought as Cosmo Guards and protected the universe for centuries. Instead of using traditional swords and staves, Opoona and his family use their ever-present (and bouncy) Energy BonBons to help cast spells and deal damage to enemy Rogues throughout the universe. After awaking from his slumber, Opoona is chosen by higher-ups on planet Landroll to become a ranger - a protector of the many domes, caverns, and pastoral areas that make up Planet Landroll - and such begins his tireless journey.

SUPER SMASH BROTHERS BRAWL

How do you improve on a game that many would argue was already near perfect? With more of course. Such is the case with Super Smash Brothers Brawl which is, I’m afraid to say, simply Super Smash Brothers Melee …times 1 million. Yes, it is basically the exact same game as the series’ previous iteration with just a whole lot more crammed into it. You can use the same controls, most of the characters are the same, and although it’s spruced up with fancy cut scenes and given a new name, even the Adventure mode is really the same as before. Yes, Super Smash Brothers Brawl is just Melee with more content, but I’m finding it incredibly hard to be upset by this. Turns out more of the same is exactly what many of us wanted.
