March to battle with your troops. Fire Emblem: Awakening has set a new standard for strategy games. The system lets you taste the real challenges of a war. If you choose the expert difficulty level, once your troops perish, they won't come back to life. Finally translated for English speaking gamers, there is no reason not to join the war.

Fly to the ice covered planet in Dead Space 3 to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. The engineer-warrior Isaac Clarke is going to scavenge scraps on the planet to create the most powerful weapons as he braves the treacherous terrains in his quest for a way that may end the horror once and for all.

Come back from outer space to face dangers lurking in the world of Hitman. The HD Collection includes Hitman 2 Silent Assassin, Hitman Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money. The visceral graphics transport gamers to the middle of every killing and the intrigues in the story make gamers wonder who are their real allies and who is planning to stab them on the back.

Escape the world of bloodshed and join a lab. Okabe Rintaro and his group of girls have made a time-machine by accident. To grasp the power of this device, shady groups and people from the future start to wreak havoc in the city.
