Back in my day, kids played Combat on the 2600. Not no more. Nope, you crazy kids these days play video games based on your new-fangled television shows and the like, and, get this, you seem to have an entire network dedicated to silly animated programs designed to spawn silly games that you can make your parents buy for you. Cartoon Network, why do you have to do this to us?

Our first little bundle of joy is the upcoming THE SECRET SATURDAYS: BEASTS OF THE 5TH SUN, coming to a PlayStation TWO and PSP near you on October 20th. Based on some Johnny Quest/Venture Brothers ripoff family that has adventures or something in THE SECRET SATURDAYS: BEASTS OF THE 5TH SUN, players will take control of multiple characters that include the entire Saturday family – Zak, Drew, Doc, Doyle and their pet cryptids, Zon, Komodo and Fiskerton – and some select Cryptids to fly, swim, swing and battle enemies. Players will adventure through 10 action packed levels in amazing environments from dangerous jungles to lost undersea cities to collect and interact with more than 50 Cryptids. Along the way, players will record the details of each find in their very own Cryptipedia. Fun puzzle elements allow players to locate hidden Cryptids and discover new paths as they fight recognizable enemies from the show including Van Rook, Piecemeal, Munya and the evil V.V. Argost.
