Weekly Games Update: God Eater, Pop'n Music Portable, Star Ocean 4 International, Massive Action Game, Shadow of Memories & more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. This week was somewhat quiet, however, interesting games such as God Eater, Star Ocean International, and the ultra-cute Pop'n Music have arrived.

God Eater takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where monsters, Aragami, destroyed everything. You are the user of the God Eater, the only weapon with enough destructive powers to take on these massive creatures.

High speed hunting ensues as soon as you spot one of these beasts. Call your friends to aid you during your quests by turning on the adhoc networking mode or take them on one on one.

You can change the shape of your weapon depending on your distance and the type of Aragami you are fighting. By absorbing the cells of the monsters, you can unleash the full power of the God Eater for a limited time. Look for the chance in battle to turn the tables around.

God Eater came today, pick it up and fight:

There are more music with Mimi and Nyami in Pop'n Music Portable. The colorful rhythm game makes use of the adhoc network facilities, so you can compete with another 3 of your friendds. Challenge your friends even when they didn't bring their PSP's with them. With the 3 button mode, 2 people can play together on the same console.

You can take Mimi and Nyami on a musical adventure when you are alone. Beginners can use the Tutorial Mode to level up your skills before taking on the 5, 7 or 9 button challenges. Swap scores with friends and see who has the best music sense.

Pop'n Music is available for Sony PSP gamers:

Square Enix heard the gamers' wails and prayers and re-made and re-released the Star Ocean 4 International version for the PlayStation3 gamers. The best feature, aside from more convenient controls and better graphics, is the choice between English and Japanese voice acting. Sail among the stars today.

War rages, fuel and food prices skyrockets. Money found their way into the pockets of the mercenaries, in this chaotic era, the only way to survive is through fighting. You may not know what you are fighting for, but fingering those destructive weapons is real fun. Come join MAG or Massive Action Game.

Time is in a loop until you figured out how you die. You have a time travelling device and your wits about you, that's it, you travel back 30 minutes before your murder and unlock the clues that lead to the culprit. Flex your brain muscles, find your murderer and ferret out his or her motive in Shadow of Memories.
