Excerpt: Atlus and developer Success bring us Metal Saga, a sci-fi RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world where outlaws and monsters run rampant. You play a nameless boy on a mission to save the world. Does that sound like a typical RPG plot? Absolutely. But when you add in some clever humor, plenty of minigames and non-linear extras to explore, and canine companions sporting heavy military-style rocketry, it can't be all bad, can it? Amanda took on the challenge of Metal Saga.
Pros: ups: tanks, bazooka dogs, snarky dialogue
