Lost Saga / Beat Hazard

Lost Saga

Pretty fun game that cross introduced us all to, its somewhat similar to rumble fighter but better.
Lots of classes to pick from and you can switch between classes on the fly which is pretty nice.

I also got Beat Hazard yesterday, which is kind of geometry wars meets audiosurf in that you can put your own music in and the game reacts to it, the intensity of the music determines how powerful your ship lazer is and how many enemies are trying to kill you.
Unfortunately, the game went a LITLE BIT OVERBOARD with the graphics effects, your lazer shoots glowing particles, the enemy bullets are flashing glowing particles, everything explodes into glowing particles… The end result is something like this.

When you’re not doing so well on the other hand, you can sometimes sort of make out whats going on…
