[c] New releases.

Resistance: Burning Skies Platform: PS Vita. Price: pounds 34.99 THE Resistance series has been a real success story for Sony and now the Chimeran escapades have moved on to the handheld Vita.

Fireman Tom Riley is the man who gets first-hand experience of the Chimeran assault and it's through his eyes that you'll experience the first-person action, using the dual analog sticks to provide precision aiming and navigation, while the front touchscreen helps you switch from primary and secondary weapon fire.

It's an incredible journey as Tom and the characters he meets battle for survival, all played out within the franchise's familiar gritty style and gameplay mechanics. Great weapon customisation options add another layer of depth to the adrenalin-pumping single-player campaign, while a fully competitive multi-player experience takes the experience to a giggle-ridden, relentless level of enjoyment.

Resistance is futile, you're going to love Burning Skies.

Akai Katana Platform: Xbox 360. Price: pounds 20.99 ARE you ready to unleash the power of the Blood Katana? Well, have your trigger finger at the ready, as the fast and frenetic 2D shooting smacks you in the face from the very start and doesn't let up across the seven challenging stages, complete with a big bad boss at the end of each.

Fans of the R-Type and Gradius style of shooter will lap up the hundreds of bullets on screen and power-ups that convert your character's basic powers into super-human explosions, while a giant sword causes all sorts of trouble.

What Akai Katana may lack in finesse, it more than makes up for in personality, with an outrageous storyline, ridiculous amounts of action and an addictive quality that will have fans of the genre going back time and time again to get that all-time highest score.
