Weekly Games Update: Construction and Conquests - Civilization Revolution, taking up arms to fight - Tears to Tiara, MGO, Metal Slug, Adventures with your close ones - Dragon Quest 5, Chocobo's Dungeon & much more!


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

A variety of interesting games have been published for the newest home and handheld consoles. The world's primere first person shooter Unreal Tournament is released as an Asian version for Xbox360™. Take on real world opponents online via the Xbox360™'s superior networking facillities or wage war against AI opponents.

For the ambitious gamers out there, build your empire and rule over the world with Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution. This game combined diplomacy, war and technology discoveries. Now everyone may be a leader or a president in their own, fun way.

When you are living in a land of fantasy, facing the menace from a superpower, your sole redemption may come from the deities, or demons, in Tears to Tiara: Kakan no Daichi's case. Join the demon lord Aaron on his quests and fight back against the invading Holy Empire.

However, if you are not living in a land of fantasy, you will have to rely on hi-tech weapons for defense. Metal Gear Online allows you to enjoy Metal Gear Solid 4 action with a total of 16 of your friends and with their innovative system, this game prevents you from being bullied by higher level gamers.

Gundam Battle Universe [Asian and JPN versions] takes hi-tech level weapons to a whole new level, you are not merely using rifles or handguns, you are piloting you own Mobile Suit. Combining elements from products under the Gundam franchise, this game is currently offering the most comprehensive Mobile Suit action experience and the largest amount of freedom for customization.

Like Gundam Battle, you use state of the art weapons to fight your enemies in Metal Slug 7, instead of piloting a giant robot, you drive a slug-look-alike tank as you gun your enemies down in this 2D shooter.

After you are done building your empire or defending it, spend some time in the unfamiliar lands. In Dragon Quest 5, an adventure around the world is not the only journey it offered, but a journey in life as well. Grow into the protagonist as you follow his father on his adventures and eventually lead your own.

Travel into other people's minds and memories with Final Fantasy's star mascot Chocobo. As treasure hunters, Choco and his partner Cid will find some invaluable and irreplaceable treasures in the town of Lostime. Meet your favourite mascots and monsters and battle with them in Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon.
