Helldivers is a challenging arcade | Gamesbeat Review

One quote kept running through my head as I played Helldivers: “The only good bug is a dead bug.”

It’s hard not to quote the delightfully bad sci-fi movie Starship Troopers while playing Arrowhead Games Studios latest top-down co-op adventure.

Killzone Mercenary has spectacular gameplay and great mp. Underrated game.

Helldivers was pretty awesome to have on Vita.

NFS MW worked well on Vita.

Killzone Mercenary is not only a phenomenal KZ, it has the best integrated system shared between the campaign and the online community. I wish more shooters were this incredible.
