    I think a lot of big and small games get overlooked in general, I was really happy to have given Superbeat: Xonic a chance.

    It was totally different from what I'd normally play - 'kill stuff'.

    The game literally "reVITAlized" my Vita, and I've bought a bunch of other games, mostly JRPGs that went under my radar due to so many great game releases in 2015.

    I'd say for me it was the title - Submerged. It was a nice story and a quick break from playing all those AAA titles.

    Finally got around to playing organ trail. God that brings me back. My only complaint is the shooting mechanic. Otherwise I am really enjoying it.

    Most of the games mentioned in the article are on sale in the flash sale. And buy Bastion if you haven't played it. There are a ton of great games in the flash sale but Bastion is a game everyone should play.

    This Flash Sale looks like "crossbuy" celebration!

    Keith's game Tennis in the face is only $1.25 and totally worth it. Really wish it was on vita too.

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning was such a great game. The combat was amazing, especially when compared to something like Skyrim.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I had such fun with this game. Too bad it was taken down with the company that created it. The screen shots from the follow-up title looked really good too and there was talk of them adding mounts in the game.

    During the first round of auctions no one bought the rights. Wonder who has the rights now.

    Well, with a little research, I found the answer and it's quite depressing. The state of Rhode Island now owns the rights to the game so I would say we'll never see anything come of a sequel.

    Rhode Island won court approval to take control of all assets owned by 38 Studios, including the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur. Which was decided by US bankruptcy court back in 2012, The Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation and BNY Mellon took possession of all of 38 Studios’ assets, including its intellectual property, as payment for the unpaid $75 million loan granted to 38 Studios by the state.

    Sort of wished I didn't research that. At least yesterday I still had a slight hope for a sequel. ;)

    38 studios messed that up so bad. No one will ever be able to touch that IP now without paying the state off to get it. And they would want all debt paid.

    And if the final nail wasn't in the coffin for Kingdoms of Amalur.

    I has a spin-off answer for the article. If I had to go with a prequel I think I would go with Mass Effect. I think the first time humans come into contact with the other alien species could be an interesting setting.
