Weekly Games Update: Light and Heat - Afro Samurai, Burnout Paradise Box, Skate 2, Another Code R & much more!


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

You don't have to wear a pony tail, shave the top of your head or wear it in a knot. Keep your hair curly and be an Afro Samurai.

To avenge the death of his father and acquire the sacred power, Afro has to kill the strongest martial artist in the world, all the while preventing others from sending him to his demise.

Starting off from a Doujinshi then an anime series and now an action game, explore the futuristic feudal Japan and the unchanging code of the Samurai.

Sheath your sword, put it down and engage in some fast paced action. Skate and Burnout Paradise the Ultimate Box are here for you to challenge the speed of sound and light.

Get on the skateboard and display your bag of tricks, rebuild the dwindling skating community and put some color back to the city.

Feel the wind whip against your face as you press down on the gas pedal. Make use of the networking facilities of the 3rd generation consoles and join a group of like minded friends in Burnout Paradise to see who is the best driver amongst you.

Get off your skate board or vehicle and step into memory lane. Because of the invention of a machine that controls a person's memories, Ashley's mother was murdered. Following the death of her mother, her father disappeared, and to rescue her father, Ashley set off to an isolated island.

People never learn. After being rescued, her father went back to his research and may have gotten himself into some trouble again. Set off to the science park this time and fish him out of a sticky situation in Another Code: R Kioku no Tobira

After saving your father, its time to save yourself. Stumbling into a scene of murder in Enkaku Sousa while drunken lands you in custody, for you are falsely accused of murder.

Your solicitor is running around, looking into the case to free you, but you can't just rely on others. Pay attention to the interrogation period and learn from the police, this may be your sole key to freedom.

Stepping out from behind bars, turn yourself into a detective and meet others in your profession. Conan and Kindaichi Hajime are joining forces in Futari no Meitantei to solve a case of missing persons on a strange island.

Communicating through the detective badges and making use of Conan's handy gadgets, the two will delve into the deepest and darkest secrets of the island.
