    Yeah, Omega is a great time to level because of how high the XP bonus gets by the end. Also, in case you didn't already know, you can use the Cube Shards you get from Terminals to buy Fortune Cards. ...

    Leveling Cyclops is a decent idea since he will give all your other characters a 10% XP bonus. Plus, he's really simple to level. Just max out Master Tactician and Channeled Blast then spin in circle...

    It's a little different, but Shadow of the Damned is pretty stylish and has some fun combat. It also has a few really weird sidescrolling shooter levels which are kind of out of place but still oddly...
