Oh hell yeah: Comet Crash bolsters PSN’s already healthy tower defense game lineup by adding counteroffensive attacks from the AI or–most importantly–a human player.
Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard gets a proper 80s-styled trailer, with mono audio, cheesy retro sound effects and even cheesier graphics; that, and Neil Patrick Harris.
