Weekly Game Update: Winning through the variation of genres - Star Ocean 4, X Blade, Shining Force Feather, Fear 2, ShellShock 2, GTA 4 DL Card, Do Don Pachi, Shooting Love, Idol Master PSP & much more!


Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days.

From explorers, military men, gangsters, swordsmen, idol producers to gods, you name it, you'd be able to play them all out in this week's game releases.

Sail amongst the stars in Star Ocean 4. The Earth has died in the third world war, to search for a new habitat, teams of explorers are sent off to space. Meet people from other planets, battle monsters and ensure that history does not repeat itself.

After coming back from your voyages, go dig in historical sites and tombs for treasure. Ayumi from X Blade resulted in getting cursed during one of these expeditions.

Jin from Shining Force Feather comes across the AI guardian Alfin of Shining Force. To remove a curse or purge the world of evil, both Ayumi and Jin are wielding the powerful blades in their hands.

In F.E.A.R 2 and ShellShock 2, experience the horrors that soldiers face day to day. Contain the paranormal disaster named Alma. The little girl is all bent for revenge, and before the inevitable happens, you must hunt her down.

ShellShock 2 features the bloodshed and violence during the Vietnam Wars. Instead of giving you the full view of the carnage, the game makes use of suggestions and plays with your imagination.

Expand Liberty City with the new The Lost & Damned download card for Xbox360. Explore the area as a new gangster hero Johnny Klebitz with troubled loyalty.

Shooter fans will rejoice, as Do Don Pachi Daioujou and Shooting Love came out. Do Don Pachi pit cute dolls, stylishly designed fighter crafts against powerful war machines. While Shooting Love is an all round entertaining game that allows you to shoot at anything and everything.

After all the sword and gun fights, lets do something more peaceful. Nurture a set of idols and take them to competitions in Idol Master SP. Each of the three versions, Perfect Sun, Missing Moon and Wandering Star comes with a set of different idols. Choose the girls you want to work with in the shopping process now.
