We took a look at Slime-San the other week, and was quite impressed with it. Well good news, it's out now on Steam

Priced at 8.99 (8.09 for launch) Slime-San is a challenging, rapid-fire platformer, not unlike Super Meat Boy and N+. It's not ordinarily my genre but I was quite impressed by Slime-San when I played it

While it's only on PC at the minute, Slime-San will be heading to consoles later this year. It's also part of this months Humble Monthly Bundle, but I think that information is a bit late.

I can't say that I'd heard of Albert and Otto until earlier today, but after watching the trailer (posted below) I'm interested.

Albert's sister is taken away by the shadows, and Albert, and his sister's magical bunny Otto, set out to save her. Although, from reading the press release, it's all a little darker than that.

It's an episodic puzzle-platformer, with the first 4 chapters making up part one. Albert and Otto gets a Steam, GOG and Humble Bundle release on 28th October, for $4.99 (3 somat?). Looks interesting

Unless you're a billionaire, your memories of the Neo Geo launch twenty-five years ago was probably something along the lines of "It's cool and all, but there's no way I'm paying quite that much for it."

Well, the good news is, now you get to choose how much you pay for it, as SNK launch the Humble NeoGeo Android Mobile Bundle.

While you don't get the original, arcade-standard AES hardware or the chunky cartridges that went with it, if you've got a smartphone running Android, then for a minimum price of a single US Dollar you can get yourself the classic titles Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Blazing Star, The King of Fighters '97 and Metal Slugs 2 and X.

Choosing to pay an above-average amount will also net you Fatal Fury Special, Samurai Shodown II and an additional Metal Slug in the form of 3- and for $30 you can also have a T-Shirt in October.

As ever with Humble there is the option of donating to charity instead, with American Red Cross being the beneficiary- all of which adds up to a fantastic value bundle, presuming that none of the games go the way of Rhythm Of Fighters in being delisted and deactivated any time soon.

You can buy the games at the usual Humble address.

Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm has had what is likely to be it's final pre-release update today, as the game readies for release next week on the 7th July

Supporters from the Indiegogo campaign can play the game as "finished", and review codes have gone out too (We'll have our review ready for release). Obviously Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm will receive many more updates and patches over the next few months, such is the way of modern gaming, but for those who have been looking forward to the ex-SNK developed fighting game, the wait is very close to over

Bit of a kick in the teeth this. There's as interesting a Humble Bundle as there's been in a long time on at the minute. It's a mix of WiiU and 3DS games, including the Indie Game of the Year nominee The Fall (Mighty Switch Force and Steamworld Dig are very good too). Pay what you want too, amazing

Except it's Americas only, we Europeans are grumble bundled (sorry)

It's not all bad news, actually it is, but it may not stay bad news forever. Damon Baker, licence man for Nintendo, has posted on Twitter explaining that they tried to make the deal worldwide, but alas it wasn't to be, however he's hopeful they'll get there eventually.

Whether that means we'll get in on this one I'm not sure, or especially hopeful, but perhaps the next time this comes about it will be more inclusive

The very well received Axiom Verge has been dated for PC. It's set to release on Steam and Humble Bundle on May 14th

It looks like the price is in line with the PS4 version of the game, so $19.99 / 17.99 / 14.99

It looks like we should also be getting more news about the Vita version soon, so keep an eye out for that if you want your Metroidvania on the go

I really quite enjoyed The Swapper when it was released on PC last year, if you have a PC capable of running it then it's currently dirt cheap as part of a Humble Bundle so you should buy it.

If you don't have a PC capable then at least you'll be able to play it on PS3, PS4 and Vita towards the end of May
