Weekly Games Update: Floods of punches, kicks and bullets - Left 4 Dead, Mortal Kombat vs. DC, Banjo-Kazooie, Need for Speed Undercover, Last Remnant, Gundam vs Gundam & much more!


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

The flood continues to wash into our warehouse. Some of the games form stunning contrast with the jolly, colorful Christmas Season.

Reflecting the people's needs for some fast paced action to vent their frustrations, Left 4 Dead drops players off in a nightmarish world and have them face off with the most bizzarre of enemies.

Less Bizzarre but just as exciting is Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, the two of the most popular franchises in the US entertainment worlds crossovered and joint forces with each other to give you a fighting adventure that will blow all your troubles away.

Playing is part of the creative experience in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. Join the bear and bird team as they travel across the mischievously designed game worlds to win the place as a successor to Spiral mountain. But beware, as your opponent, the witch Grunty will do all she can to stop you.

Hunting and being hunted are big parts of adventures in Need for Speed Undercover. Go against and far beyond the speed limit, wrestle secrets from your reckless prey and maneuvre your way out of the clutches of the police force.

Bring your favourite team of soccer players to your living room through PES 2009. The gap between virtual reality and the actual world is seamlessly bridged, letting you feel the ball against the sole of your spikes.

Eternal Poison and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World are crossing the ocean to English speaking audiences. Carefully translated and properly localized, these two strategic and action RPGs will transport you to fantasy worlds that unfolds extravagantly before your eyes, granting you a brief escape from the gloom.

Fly the skies in Otomedious Gorgeous. Rain bullets and energy balls at your opponents. Loyal to the arcade game, the Xbox360 rendition features the familiar faces and music. See how lethal shooting action and feminine cuteness are combined as one in this shooter.

After Infinite Undiscovery, Square Enix starts another RPG series. Last Remnant is a cross platform project that is available on both PlayStation3 and Xbox360.

While the PlayStation3 version is still unannounced as of yet, the Xbox360 version is right on time for Christmas. Revel in the imagination of Square Enix's game developers as you wait for the next episode in the Final Fantasy series.

Revise your Gundam history this Christmas via Gundam vs Gundam. All memorable action scenes and vocals throughout the series, from the first Gundam to the latest 00 are combined into one UMD. Step into your mobile suit and show the world your prowesses as a pilot. Alone or with friends, this mecha action will provide you hours of blood pounding excitement.

As usually, here's a summary of all new releases from this week, followed by a quick preview of what is expected to be hot next week.
