Shoot Many Robots (PC)

Shoot Many Robots is a 2.5-D side-scrolling shooter game that stars P. Walter Tugnut, a hillbilly who stockpiles ammo, beer and guns in his run-down RV as he waits for the inevitable robot apocalypse. When an abandoned factory begins producing robots on its own, Walter goes on a robot-killing rampage to save humanity from an onslaught of robot hordes.

Shoot Many Robots is available for $9.99.

Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii)

Xenoblade Chronicles asks players to wield the Monado blade to save the world from destruction. With ordinary weapons having no effect on the machine race known as the Mechon, the power of the Monado blade is the only hope. The hero, Shulk, uses it to fight the Mechon and see glimpses of the future. Players control Shulk as they engage monsters in battle and go on quests.

Xenoblade Chronicles also features a unique relationship-building element, the Affinity System, which encourages players to build rapport with other characters. Doing so unlocks cut scenes that provide new information and backstory.

Xenoblade Chronicles is rated "T" for "Teen" by the ESRB and is available for an MSRP of $49.99.
