Excerpt: Vanquish is a 3rd person sci-fi shooter from SEGA. You play as Sam Gideon, a DARPA agent, who fortunately has been given an "Augmented Reaction Suit" - basically a semi-robotic suit of armour. The game takes place in a city in a huge revolving cylinder orbiting Earth. Unfortunately some Russians have taken control of the city and are threatening to destroy the USA with the solar energy the orbiting city harvests (you couldn't make this stuff up could you???).
It's not completely essential, but it's a great game.
