Mugen Souls is going digital on PlayStation Network this Tuesday, NIS America has announced. A role-playing game developed by Compile Heart, the story follows a goddess by the name of Chou-Chou in her quest to conquer the universe and enslave its inhabitants.
Originally released on PlayStation 3 last year, the title features similarities to the Disgaea series, including artwork from Takehito Harada and a soundtrack composed by Tenpei Sato.

After nearly a month since the last soundtrack release, Capcom has made available the Mega Man 5 OST to celebrate the classic platformer's arrival on the 3DS eShop. As with the MM4 OST, the album costs $8.95 and contains both the NES and PS1 Complete Works soundtracks, plus bonus arrangements by the in-house Capcom band Alph Lyla.
Your mileage may vary, but Mega Man 5 is my least favorite of the NES installments. I found most levels too long and devoid of interesting stage hazards, while the music overall lacked pep. I also felt it lazy that the all four levels in each of the two castles shared the same song, breaking the tradition of switching up the music every other level.
But if the Proto Man castle had to reuse a single song, I'm glad it was this one. Despite how I feel about the rest of the soundtrack, that song ranks among the best in the series' history.

One of the problems with most narrative-focused games is that after you've played through them once, most of the surprises are over. The Yawhg, the next game from Damian Sommer (Friendship in 4 Colors), looks to circumvent that issue. Teaming with illustrator Emily Carroll, Damian crafted a game that feels a lot like a classic D&D experience. You wont ever know exactly what you and your friends are up against, regardless of how many times you've played it.
The game is set for release on May 30th, though Damien and Emily are working to get advanced copies out to both the press and "YouTube people." It's great to see devs embrace the LP community like this. It'll be interesting to see if a game that combines both social elements and classic RPG design can make it on the Youtube circuit, or any circuit for that matter.
A lot of classic shmups also happen to work as metaphors for insemination. The last level of R-Type Final immediately comes to mind. Wouldn't you know it, but there is a guy who's taken that theme even further, with the game like Space Phallus and the award-winning Scoregasm.
For some mysterious reason, Scoregasm is 75% off just for today. The game has plenty of interesting bullet patterns and interesting mechanics to explore, so if you like that kind of thing, you'll like this thing. Rumor has it that if the game sells 1,000 copies during this sale, it will be available for free tomorrow. If you buy it today, you could be paying it forward for your poor internet brothers and sisters in the future.
What would Haley Joel do? I think he'd have a Scoregasm.
Doki-Doki Universe is a simple game to grasp but a hard one to describe at first. Basically, you play as a robot named QT377665 (or QT3 for short), who's just discovered that its entire line has become obsolete thanks to their lack of humanity. An alien named Alien Jeff then tasks you to help humans all across the galaxy in order to learn about humanity.
Weird, but the concept makes sense once you realize that the creator of ToeJam & Earl, Greg Johnson, is behind this. Even more interesting is that a large portion of the game will be completely free for you to play on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.
