The indie excitement earlier this month has died down for the most part, but there were still a number of fun new games out this week, including some exciting mobile exclusive entries of famed video game franchises.

No one does mindless hack and slash quite like a Musou game. What's more fun than single-handedly chopping your way through hundreds of enemies?

Crash of Cars is a fun new entry in the realm of multiplayer beat 'em ups. It's basically bumper cars off the rails -- players drive around in vehicles of their choosing -- anything from a mini-van to the weinermobile in all of its glory -- smashing into and shooting at their opponents. It's good, silly fun.
