Weekly Games Update: It's all about training - Major League Baseball 2K9, MLB 09 The Show, KOF 98 Unlimited Match, Ys Book I and II, 7th Dragon, Super Robot Taisen Z Special Disc, Action Replay Ez much more!


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

The highlight of the week is doubtlessly Resident Evil / Biohazard 5. The living dead are back, spawning even more horror and bloodshed.

To conquer them, our heroes will travel to Africa to investigate, and hopefully, be able to eliminate this plague once and for all. For more information, please see this special entry.

Leaving the bio-weapons for a while, we should do some training before battling evil, and what is better than baseball, which allows you to form a tighter bond with your team mates as well as hone your physical prowesses.

Major League Baseball 2K9 and MLB 09 The Show are here at your service. Get your bats and mitts ready for this season's games. With the networking features, gather your team mates around and play ball!

Put down your bat and step into the fighting arena in KOF 98 Unlimited Match, or alternatively, sail into Esteria in Ys Book I and II. The classic fighter and fantasy RPG are localized for English speaking gamers.

Addicted to fantasy RPGs now? An adorable game is here waiting for you. 7th Dragon features the cutest super deformed heroes and dreamy picture book quality art work.

Killer flowers are blooming on Eden because of the dragons. To prevent them from destroying the land, knights and other expatriates are sent off to slay them. Who will remain at the end? mankind or dragons?

You don't have to ride to battle on a warhorse or a dragon, you can drive your own mecha. To fullfil gamers' desire for excitement, developers of Super Robot Taisen Z have released a special disc [Asian and JPN vers.] that comes with side stories and epilogues as well as goodies such as setting information and glossaries.

Not all people are game geniuses, but everyone wants to beat the game they love at least once. If you don't have the skills nor the time to hone them, get a hold of Action Replay Ez. The catridge carries all the codes that helps a person through a tough situation.
