It's music fest this week. We have the new Beatmania IIDX 16 Empress, an upgraded and updated port from the arcades. Feminine charm is the name of the game.

To suit the grand, powerful images evoked by the name Empress, the game is full of up beat tunes, high quality images that are both delicate and impressionistic.

Besides the game, the premium best edition package comes with the twin CD Empress Best album. With a large array songs in different genres, you can practice your reflexes on the train or on the bus when you go to school or work. Simply imagine the cues floating down like flower petals.


Who said that the PlayStation2's time has ended? Here is another great game:

After the glittery DJ game in pink and black, here comes Guitar Hero 5. Perhaps not as sparkly, Guitar Hero is one powerful game not only featuring the widest range of popular artists, but a partying session where you can ask your friends to join together to jam songs.

While Beatmania has the keyboard and the turn tables, Guitar Hero, of course, have the guitar and other in-game instruments. Call friends over for a party or jam with the A.I. The perfectly customizable sessions let you join in and drop out seamlessly without ruining the party for the others.

Music is a common language and being part of a band is part of a lot of people's youth or dreams. Now don't just dream. Live it.

For those new to the title, get the guitar-bundle packs:

After exploring your artistic expressions and training your reflexes, its time to train your analytical mind. Remember Professor Layton the brainy amateur sleuth? Sloan and McHale is one of his recommendations. While the professor is more puzzle solving-inclined, Sloan and McHale trains your inferencing skills.

Using the same warm colors in the Professor Layton games, the stories are told through shadow puppet plays to increase the mysterious atmosphere. Go through the story, pay attention to details, design a line of questionings and shoot them at your suspects.

Your imagination combined with logical analysis. Sloan and McHale 2 are brain exercises that keeps you fit. Coming in September, get your brain shaped up before the next semester:

Your brain is probably not the only thing that needs whipping back into shape after months of summer holidays, especially when you need to save the world. Aliens are invading and the Inazuma soccer team is all we have to defend our land. Travel the world to recruit the strongest players and train together to strengthen the team.

Remember, united we stand!

The game is available as Fire and Blizzard versions. Choose your ace, you have the familiar Goenji in Fire and the equally cool Fubuki in Blizzard. Enemies differ as well. You meet the Frontier team or the Diamond Dust team depending on the versions.

When skills and opponents differ between versions, Fire and Blizzard does feel like two different games, does it? The earth will be under double attack in October, get your your spikes and uniforms ready!
