Holy Potatoes! feat. Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars and more…

In space, nobody can hear you scream... and certainly not sing. In Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space!?, it’s nevertheless in the vacuum of space that you’ll find Cassie and Fay, two sisters searching for their grandfather, Jiji, the famous potato explorer. To help them in their frantic quest, they’ll need to recruit the finest potatoes in the galaxy.
And their number includes Shelton John. Singer, songwriter, and part-time laser specialist, Shelton is a flippant, ambitious young potato who’s no stranger to long tours. His favourite song? “Rocket Egg”, of course… Your wanderings through space will also cross paths with Marcelina, a parody of Adventure Time’s vampire queen, and the mysterious Toshiki, whose nodding head during his own concerts put an end to his musical career. The most intrepid explorers will also cross Runo Mars (get it?), “Danilo Glover”, aka Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino in Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! and the great Stevie Wonder in Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?!. It’s a story that, while it may not make you a good singer, will give you enough puns to last a lifetime!


Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission Las Vegum

From Jacques Chirac to Sean Connery, and including Brigitte Bardot and Charles Aznavour, so many personalities have been caricatured by Albert Uderzo and René Goscinny in the Asterix and Obelix comics. A tradition that the developers behind Astérix & Obélix XXL 2 were only too happy to go along with, but this time paying tribute to the world of video games and its iconic characters. From the outset, the agent who gets you in to the Roman camp is none other than an imitation Sam Fisher, hero of the stealth game, Splinter Cell. From then on in, and throughout the game, you’ll meet weird Roman legionnaires with surprisingly familiar faces: Mario, Sonic, Pacman, Rayman, Ryu from Street Fighter and Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. The game is also packed with visual and architectural references: a statue of Link, another of Donkey Kong, a wall made of Tetris blocks, and a Space Invader obelisk. You’ll no doubt need a bit of magic potion and a healthy dose of curiosity to find them all!

Shooting Stars feat. Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Skrillex, Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, etc…

Do Justin Bieber’s golden locks or Kanye West’s aloof attitude drive you crazy? Would you love to explain to Nicki Minaj that there is indeed such a thing as too much foundation? While some personalities in the music industry are lovely people in real life, others could definitely do with a good slap. But rather than trying in vain to get close enough to tell them some home truths yourself, try and take them out in Shooting Stars instead! Of course, all of the pop stars you’ll meet are in actual fact clones controlled by aliens, and hidden behind clever pseudonyms. So there’s no need to feel at all bad for spraying them all with shots from your laser-cat!
