Let's begin with Dracula - Undead Awakening. First off this game is available for the PS3, PSP, and as WiiWare for you Nintendo fans. It is a top down shooter reminiscent of games such as Robotron 2084, Reloaded and the more recent I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1N IT!!!1

The game is available for download on PS3, PSP, and (surprisingly) the iPhone. Try out the demo first, if you like it, you like it, but I say keep your handful of dollars and download Streets of Rage instead.
M(p)SMP official website to stay informed and watch some neat game videos.
The Hysteria Project is a game that is entirely filmed in the first person perspective. You are a captive of an axe-wielding nutbag and you must escape with your life. Each aspect of the game requires you to pay attention to your surroundings while making decisions, sometimes with a couple of seconds on a time. The game is creepy with it's low-res video, eerie soundtrack, constant heart beat, and bleak imagery. However, the game is only as creepy as the atmosphere in which you play it. The ideal settings are in the dark with headphones on.

And lastly, Brainpipe...In all honesty I have no idea what's going on. There's glowing things that hurt you as you pilot a wire frame eye down a trippy tube while there are glowing symbols that you must grab in order to score some points. You can also tap/hold X to slow down time for a bit. It's mainly a bit of nothing...the game isn't that enjoyable as it's just tubes upon tubes of avoiding things that sparkle and symbols. If I want to play a bad acid trip I would rather splay Space Giraffe where I can at least shoot things and see comical sentences whiz across the screen.

As it stands the MINI market is a good idea, but it has the potential to be crowded up junk and shovel downloads. PSP/PS3 owners, give this section of the shop a chance, you can find some gems here and for the low price and the small space they take up, it will be well worth it for you.
And once again, Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess succeeded in stealing the show for me. I'm off to jump into some monsters and find that princess.
