          The PS Vita is now released in the US. It has a price tag of $250 for the Wi-fi only system or the $300 Wi-fi plus 3G system. There are many launch games that you should look into such as Uncharted: The Golden Abys , WipEout 2048, FIFA 12, Modnation Racers Roadtrip, and much more. Also it can have non-gaming applications like Netflix, Twitter, and others. I think this is a game system you should look into!

ESRB: E10+ for Everyone ten and up – Lyrics

          Just Dance 3 was made by Ubisoft. Just Dance 3 is the third in a highly acclaimed series. In this Just Dance, the game finally comes to the Xbox 360 and the PS3. It has very charming graphics and great gameplay. Also you can unlock many different game modes and songs by earning stars you get when you play.

         You can play with up to four players and there are some songs that have a separate dancer for two or four players. The game has hit songs like LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem and Taio Cruz’s Dynamite. It has many unlockables to keep you coming back, it even has a workout mode where it tracks your progress! I think the moves vary from beginner to the advanced dancer. It is fun if you play by yourself or three other people.

         Overall I think Just Dance 3 is the best dance game I have played on the market. It has great gameplay, a pretty nice song selection, and eye-pleasing graphics. They didn’t put in a multiplayer in this game but I wouldn’t know why they would. I recommend this game if you like dancing games because this one is amazing!

          Team Fortress 2 is a game made by Valve. Valve also made Portal and Half-Life. Team Fortress is a multiplayer only game. You can download it for free on the PC or Mac. For the consoles you can get it only in a game that also has Portal and Half-Life 2 for around $20-$30 dollars. It has a charming non-realistic cartoony graphics that aren’t trying to be realistic and failing at it like most games do.

The gameplay is fantastic. It has many different game modes to keep you busy for a long time. There are nine classes. Sniper has a sniper rifle, Pyro has a flame thrower, Medic has a medi gun and can heal people, Soldier has a rocket launcher , Scout has a scatter gun and is really fast, Demoman has a grenade launcher, Heavy has a mini gun, and the spy has a revolver and can cloak and disguise himself. All of the classes are great to play with and there is one for each play style. In multiplayer the two teams are the blue team and the red team.

Overall I think that Team Fortress is a game not to be overlooked. Especially since it is free to play on the computer. It has beautiful graphics and the gameplay is riveting. It is challenging but still easy to get into. There is lots of blood but since it isn’t a realistic shooter I have no complaints about that category unlike most shooters I review. I think it is one of those games that you play just because your bored and want to blow some stuff up and not one where you play for the story. (Which is nonexistent in this game!)
