Top Games To Play On Cinco de Mayo

I'm not sure Cinco de Mayo is a real holiday. I've heard it compared to St. Patrick's day, where everyone magically becomes Irish. Either way, go grab your sombrero and let's take a crack at this gaming pinata and see what are the best games to play on this fake Mexican holiday.


Guacamelee!



A side-scrolling 2D platformer that requires precise mastery of button combinations to traverse between the living and the dead. It was fun until it got hard and that's when I stopped playing it. It's a good game that should be played if you want a challenging platformer based on Mexican folklore.

Smuggle Truck



Well this game is probably racist and politically incorrect. It's purpose was supposed to bring awareness to the plight of immigrants crossing the Mexican border into the US. What it did was get itself rejected from the Apple App Store. They had to change the name to Snuggle Truck and instead of trying to keep the bouncy immigrants in the truck you have to keep cute fluffy animals.

Red Dead Redemption



This open world western is one of the few Rockstar games that I like. It is so well made and has some of the most racist characters Rockstar has ever designed. They do such great work and always remind us of the world we still live in. I can only dream of what Red Dead Redemption 2 might be like on the PS4.,

Treasures of Montezuma



Want to play a game based on an Aztec emperor who is forced from his home by Spanish conquistadors? Treasures of Montezuma is the game you need.  What a better way to show some love to the native people than to make a match 3 game in their honor. They would be so proud if they weren't all killed off or assimilated.

Review: Turrican Flashback (PS4)

  Turrican Flashback brings the classic Turrican series to the PlayStation 4. This collection includes: Turrican, Turrican II: The Final Fight, Mega Turrican, and Super Turrican, but what the heck is Turrican? Turrican is a classic action game series originally released in the early 90’s on the Commodore 64, Amiga, and other obscure retro consoles you’ve probably never heard of. It was a technical achievement at the time and managed to gather and maintain a cult following to this day. The series has been dormant for a few decades now; can this love letter to classic action gaming entice a new audience?   As far as remakes go, Turrican Flashback is as barebones as they come. The new features added to these classics are what you would expect. You got filters and aspect ratio settings, save states, as well as a rewind feature. With the latter two disabling trophies, arguably the biggest addition. You’re not gonna find any fancy behind the scenes features or art gallery in this one. At lea
