Weekly Games Update: Slash the chains - free the Moon from corruption, get ready for war in Warhammer, Commando: Steel Disaster, jump into the anime world in D.Gray-man, One Piece & more!


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

The highlight of this week is doubtlessly the release of Square Enix's much anticipated RPG Infinite Undiscovery. Cut off the chains that bind the moon to this world and remove the corrupted source of power that is governing everyone's life.

Besides sheer force, strategy is just as important in battles and Warhammer emphasized this point. The brutality of war and the enemies are remarkable in this series, so think twice before you employ your forces. The complete Dawn of War Collection is released on the PC while the newer installment, Battle March, has made its debut on the Xbox360.

Firearms and equipment are also vital to obtaining a victory in violent struggles. In the action shooter Commando: Steel Disaster, you have a wide range of fire arms selection. Tap into your leadership talents and unlock missions, take down your arch-nemesis and soil his dream of world domination.

Since we are talking about shooters, Fantasy Zone, one of the most representative of Sega shooters has come out as a complete collection [ebten DX Pack and Standard versions]. The package contain a total of 10+ games, from home console versions, arcade versions to the spin off products. All in all, the package has revived the full glory of the game for your PlayStation2 console.

Aside from projectile weapons, bio weapons are just as destructive. The Earl of the Millenium in D.Gray-man is using such weapons in an attempt to take over the world. Get into Allen Walker's pair of shoes to stop his plans from coming to fruition, but beware of the mysterious clan Noah.

Another game which is spawned from best selling manga/anime series is One Piece Unlimited Cruise: Episode 1. Whenever the Makuwara pirates gets involved in something, there is always one single outcome: An action packed, fun filled comical adventure. Come on board with the crew and sail toward an unknown future.

Go to fresh water areas after you have got off board the pirate ship as the fishing competition is now in full swing. Activision's Rapala Fishing frenzy is providing you with professional fishing gear and a new perspective on fishing. Find the most sought after fish and participate in all 14 games as you tour around the American continent.

There are numerous ways to save the galaxy, besides taking up arms, you can blend into the Spore [US and JPN versions] environment as one of its creatures and discover the troubles the galaxy is experiencing.

As usually, here's a summary of all new releases from this week, followed by a quick preview of what is expected to be hot next week.
