I'm a huge fan of the Final Fantasy Tactics series. Sadly, we haven't gotten a new entry in the series in years. If the design of Massive Chalice is any indication, someone at Double Fine is a big fan as well. Blending tactical RPGs and breeding mechanics, Massive Chalice forces you to make hard choices while managing a dwindling timeline and squabbling royal families.

There aren't a lot of games out there that embrace the metal aesthetic. There are even fewer that get metal. Brutal Legend is one of the latter. Guide Jack Black-voiced roadie Eddie Riggs around around a world inspired by your favorite metal album covers and command troops in a fusion of Real Time Strategy and Hack and Slash gameplay. The story is fun and has some of the most unique moments set to licensed music in gaming. It's also worth mentioning that the soundtrack is a great primer to metal from the past 40 years.
