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

With the network facility enabled, you can wonder into other people's realms or get batches of updates for existing games. The developers of GT have released their newest patch, Spec III, for GT5 Prologue which players can download. But for those who never owned the original game, get the completely updated GT5 Prologue Spec III via our site.

Another racer that blurs the line between reality and the virtual world is Midnight Club: Los Angeles. Race through the city, transform it into tunnels of lines and lights and face off with all the super cars and their drivers. Feel the adrenaline that runs through your veins as you drive recklessly through the city in your safe haven.

Visit New York after you have finished the races in L.A. As one of the most glamourous cities in the world, it's once again being invaded by evil forces. As Spider Man, ensnared in the Web of Shadows you have to save the city and yourserlf. But how you proceed about your business is entirely up to you. So choose wisely.

Fallout 3 paints an apocalyptic world destroyed completely by a nuclear fallout where only the fittest can survive. Granting the players a high amount of freedom, the game allows the players a feel of being truly in charge of their lives and the world. combat mutants, opposition forces and and other hostilities in this game.

Blow things up to galactic proportions, the war between the Ohn Empire and the Federation is still in full swing in Thunder Force VI. Pilot your craft, shoot your enemy planes off the sky and bring an end to all wars with your powerful cannon blasts.

A couple of hot Japanese titles are localized for English speaking gamers. Eternal Sonata, Star Ocean: First Departure and Master of Monster Lair are some of these. Follow the engaging storylines and endearing characters on their exciting adventures. Enjoy the fantasy and magic that are weaved before your eyes.

Another much anticipated game is the localized Wii Music. Spend some time with your family and broaden your music horizons. Play to the beat and train your reflexes, conduct an orchestra, play to the melodies of well known games such as Super Mario Brothers' themes or even compose your own tracks.

Last but not least is the new DS release of Chocobo's Dungeon. Learn what Cid did when Choco is busy retrieving memories for the town's folk.

Besides a fuller story, the Pop up Card Duel is compatible with the Wi-Fi card game of the still developing Chocobo to Mahou no Ehon: Majo to Shoujo to 5-Jin no Yuusha which gives you more incentive to look out for the new game.

Besides the game, to go with the chocobo hype, dress your DS as your favourite mascot with Chocobox. The package comes with a sunny yellow protector case that spots Choco's smiling features at one corner. Aside from the case, there is a matching yellow touch pen that you can lengthen and shorten as well as a screen cleaner.
