Convenience comes with a price. In the futuristic world of 2069, people no longer need any device to access the network. They have a chip planted in their minds, and with a thought, they can drive a car, apply to a school and access a shop.

Unknown to the people, the controllers of these chips, the syndicates have access to all their thoughts, their feelings and their data.

And the Syndicate don't provide their services for free.

Become an agent of the EuroCorp's and embark on a journey of vengeance. Your weapons are not limited to guns and knives, you can hack into your enemies' chips to access their data.

Excitingly re-imagined, the Syndicate is looking for new agents in February:

In the distant past, when the world was still covered in endless blue, there were two gods - the machine god and the giant god. To decide who gets to rule this world, the two fought each other until death.

Land surfaced years after the war, and later, human civilization flourished. But peace didn't last, for machine soldiers appeared. Set in an alternate world where the middle ages meets sci-fi, this is another war that ends all wars. The game uses an action battle system that allows you free movement. Hit your target and run from his hit range, or combo him with your two other party characters.

The long awaited localized version of Xenoblade is coming to English speaking gamers in June:

Xenoblade ChroniclesUS US$ 49.99

Vanilla Ware takes the gamers away from the far east in Muramasa to the land of swords and magic in Grand Knights History. The beautiful 2D sprites are back along with the delicately painted stages.

The continent of Ristia is on the brink of an all out war, the three largest nations Union, Avalon and Logres are vying for each other's land, and amidst this chaos, a lone knight rises up the ranks.

The battles take place on a spherical stage. Align your troops into formations. Some of these formations raise your attack power while others replenish your HP. React quickly to your enemies' attacks, for they can break your formations. Each character can adopt a weapon and become a specialist, or they can become a master of all weapons, just be sure to level up your weapons by using them frequently to learn the sure kill attacks.

The Grand Knights are coming to English speaking gamers in February:
