Weekly Games Update: Singers and Swordsmens - Black Sigil, Class of Heroes, Fate/Unlimited Codes, Guitar Hero Smash Hits, The Legendary Starfy, SNK Budget Price games & much more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. Swords, magic, fighters and a lot of budget titles are out this week, so have a fantastic journey and save some cash in the process.

Starting with the swords and magic fantasy, we have Black Sigil and Class of Heroes. Pick up your sword and join the cursed swordsman Kairu on his journey in search for true magic and power.

Don't worry if you are not born with magic, like Kairu, you can get your powers in Class of Heroes. Play with their character customization options and determine your job class.

To graduate, you have to venture into the dungeons and defeat monsters to get your credits. Just the sort of school any student would love to join.

Fate/Unlimited Codes is ported to the PSP. Now slip it into your PSP and take it with you wherever you go. See the beautiful 3D CG movies and enjoy the adrenaline pounding action. Gameplay is structured as a 2D fighter with incredible speed, so come and engage in the white hot fights and admire Saber's new costumes.

Guitar Hero is out with a Best Hits game, with a variety of fan favourite tracks. This is a chance for those new to the franchise to get a taste of what the game is about and experiment with all the music genres offered. This is the first gate to your dream as a rock artist, run through it and onto your very own stage.

Besides fantasy and musical adventures, the ocean world is a very good place to dive into, especially in this heat. Join The Legendary Stafy and his friends in this cool, blue platformer. You have high speed spin attacks and other commands at your command. Recruit a friend and take down the incredibly large beasts that lurk in the depths.

Last but not least are the budget titles released this week. The fighters from SNK are famous for their colorful, attractive characters and their powerful moves.

After causing a stir in the arcade gaming communities, they swept their way to the PlayStation2. For those who have missed any game when it first came out, grab it now at budget prices. The two budget price series are NeoGeo The Best and SNK Best Collection.
