Resogun: Lets save some humans

Ok so after getting tired of trying to follow some guys in Assassin's Creed Black flag and failing 10 times I decided lets try one of these free games. So I decided to start with Resogun, which was free with PlayStation + for now. First off I'd like to state this game takes advantage of the speaker in the controller which startled me at first. I found you could push the PlayStation button and go to the device menu and turn the sound down or in the Resogun options menu you can also adjust the sound. This game reminds me of back in the day when my sister and I played R-Type on the Super NES. But this is a lot cooler than R-type. You get your choice of ship and you can choose a hardness level. I'm doing Rookie at this time since my favorite games are RPG's this is not my usual fare and I couldn't see myself being like lets play lots of games like this. Pretty much it was a good way to take my frustrations out that I had to follow people in Assassin's creed without being caught and as they rush along. Something I suck at. I'm sure this is going to take me forever, so Resogun was a fun way to take out this frustration. So the point of the game is to save these humans and take out all the enemies. The humans though look like little green stick men and they get killed in all kinds of ways. Unfortunately there are humans spread out throughout the circular area so you need to make sure to be in the right place at the right time or they die. It's not a bad game and it's interesting to pass the time when stuck in something I want to play. It's also a nice looking game. The graphics are fun. The controls are interesting since to shoot you use the right analog stick and to move it's the left. But it's a nice little game which shows even more of what the new controller can do. Now I need to try something that uses the touch pad. I would also like to get a camera to try the playroom, which looks like a lot of fun. But thats all for the future.

edit: I also should note that playing this game did cause my hand to hurt after a bit. I do have carpel tunnel form years of playing clarinet. Where Assassin's Creed didn't bother me at all, the intensity of the game play here did cause me some pain.
