Teddy bears are not all cute and cuddly, they can be full of vengeance and blood thirst. Take Naughty Bear on a path of revenge. Full of off beat humor and over the top plushy violence, the game is not as innocent as it looks and contains more fun and action than you'd expect from a toy bear.

Yes, Naughty Bear is a warped way of presenting a childhood fantasy, so if you want sweeter childhood memories, play Dragon Ball Origins 2 and join Goku on his search for the seven Dragon Balls. Pit yourself against the Red Ribbon Army in this game and spot all the bits and pieces of Toriyama humor scattered in the game.

Sin and Punishment 2 takes you to a ride in a high speed kart, it'll zip you through some fantastic territories and put you face to face with some horrifying enemies. Don't worry, though, it'll also put some high powered weapons in your hands so you can shoot them down at first sightings.

If your are more of a sword person than a gun person, here is Ninety-Nine Nights 2 for you. Enter gothic, creepy structures and strike down all the monsters and demons that lurk within the room. Some of them will head straight for your blade, but others might be more of a challenge. This is perfect for relieving stress after a rough day.
