As the developers, game designers and programmers get back to work, the game releases started to pick up speed, although its still relatively calm compared to the Christmas months, the products that came out this week include some of the most popular party games and highly acclaimed RPGs.

Nothing rolls a party along as smoothly as singing. Lips, the Asian version is out, carry on your fun and throw weekend singing parties. Discover the hidden musical talent amongst your friends and family and step into your favourite singer's shoes for a night.

Movies and parties goes well together. Prided yourself as a walking encyclopedia on the film industry? Take the challenge in Scene It?. Watch scenes, jog your memory and guess which film those scenes come from. With clips from a wide range of films, fans of cinema blockbusters and art films are going to have a field day.

Coming a few days after the party games is Lord of the Rings: Conquest. You've seen the hardship the hobbits has gone through to return the ring, what about the minions of Sauron? The characters you simply labelled as "villains" and watched as they get killed off gets their spotlight this time.

After pulling away from the evil side's camp, come to modern Tokyo to sign a contract with demons. Scoring impressive marks from Famitsu, Demon Survivor from Shin Megami Tensei is a must-play for the series fans and a good starting point for the newbies of this game franchise.
