Already nominated for Most Innovative Game of E3 2008 and Best Graphics of E3 2008, the beautiful Flower scores a hat-trick with this nomination. Flower can’t be sufficiently described with words, only as an experience unlike any before it.

Picking up where Tools of Destruction left off, Quest for Booty features the same astounding graphics and audio the original AAA title included. This time around players will have access to a new wretch that allows them to push, pull, and manipulate objects to solve puzzles. The game should last you around three to four hours, but for the relatively low asking price, we feel it’s well worth it to continue Ratchet and Clank’s epic adventure.

Princesses are spoiled. They get everything they want, including food. And, when they are captured by an opposing empire, it’s rather hard to carry them back. Frantic and fun, Fat Princess pits two hordes of players against each other in comic medieval battle royale. Your goal is to rescue your beloved princess from the enemy dungeon. With lovable (but bloody) graphics and impressive 32-player online matches, it seems that Fat Princess will be angering feminists and entertaining us for a long time to come.
