The great traditions: Grand Knights History, Bodycount, Devil Survivor: Overclock, Madden NFL 12, The Driver, NanoDiver & more! - Weekly Games Update!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. From the era of chivalry to the post modern era, this week's releases cover a long stretch of time. Change the fate of a country in Grand Knights History, rack up the Bodycount and save the world in seven days in Overclock.

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.

Swear your allegiance to the History of the Grand Knights:

From the publisher: BODYCOUNT reboots the First Person Shooter with a single-minded focus on delivering best-in-class gunplay. Gamers will experience the intense satisfaction of spectacular close-quarters combat in a shreddable world as players and opponents tear through cover to execute explosive kills.

The first game from Codemasters Guildford Studio, BODYCOUNT is being developed using the EGO Game Technology Platform, an evolution of the award-winning EGO engine.

Ensnared in a clandestine global power struggle that rages under the cover of conventional war zones in Africa and Asia, players must eliminate a relentlessly evil enemy known only as ‘The Target’ on behalf of the ‘Network’.

After being dropped into chaotic areas of operations, gamers deploy a mouth-watering selection of contemporary firearms to tear through environments and enemies, chaining kills and earning power ups. Complimented by co-operative and multiplayer modes, BODYCOUNT will set new standards for intense, outrageous arcade action and put the fun back into the FPS.

Shoot until the Bodycount mounts up to astronomical numbers:

From the publisher: Expanded and enhanced, SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked for Nintendo 3DS builds upon what many considered one of the best RPGs of 2009. The player is presented with a novel premise: Tokyo is in full lockdown, the government's swift, coldblooded response to a surprise demon invasion.

While you and your friends must solve the nature of the interdimensional rift through which the horrific creatures are entering your world, saving the world is not your highest priority; staying alive, on the other hand, is.

You have seven days to defeat the demons before the world perishes with you. Tame the demons and pit them against your enemies, in the upgraded and improved version of Devil Survivor: Overclock on the Nintendo™ 3DS:

Madden NFL 12 is True to the Game. The newest installment in the franchise brings you better offence and defense techniques and passes, so you have all the tricks you need to face off with the 32 teams in all those stadiums. Game makers can also create a dream team and play plans by customizing their playbooks.

Drive around town to hunt down the crime lord Charles Jericho. The Driver John Tanner who has put countless criminals behind bars has a shining track record, and this ride in glamorous San Francisco might be the most brilliant yet. But Jericho is not the crime lord for nothing, this might be Tanner's last mission ever.

Enemies from within might be harder to catch than enemies from the outside. Don your NanoDiver to do operations on your patients. The scalpels and the scrubs are outdated, you head straight into the infected regions to shoot down the germs and viruses, but don't forget to heal your patient as you launch attacks.
