Weekly Games Update: The Metal singer and the cat - Guitar Hero Metallica, Leisure Suit Larry, Pixel Junk, Wanted: Weapons of Fate, Echoes of Time, Lux Pain & more!



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

Compared to the last few weeks, this week is comparatively quiet. Still, a number of great games came out, such as Guitar Hero Metallica.

All good music genres deserve a tribute from the Guitar Hero franchise, and so here comes one for the more extreme musicians.

Paint your face, get your most outrageous costumes ready, for its time to ride the lightning. Gather a group of like-minded buddies and do what you do best!

Still a star, but no longer singing on stage, you are now taken to Tinseltown in Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust, your version of Hollywood. Glitz, glamour and gorgeous women, you are not only acting on stage, but you pull the strings behind these stars or starlets. Find out the mole who wants to air your dirty laundry in this open world.

There are more puzzles for you to solve in Pixel Junk. Previously released via the PlayStation Network alone, 3 of the best loved games are collected and combined into one blu-ray disc. There is a car racer, tower defense strategy game and a platform. Gather your family, siblings or friends around for some healthy fun.

Continue your adventures in Wanted: Weapons of Fate. You are the the ultimate weapon both feared and desired. Carry on with where the film left off and master an arsenal of weapons or engage in acts of mass destruction. You have both the fate of the world and the film in your hands, utilize that power now!

More Japanese adventure or RPGs are localized for English speaking gamers. Echoes of Time [Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS], the newest game in the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is another package of wholesome fun that stresses the love between family and friends.

Lux Pain, on the other hand brings out the vengeful emotions one feels about having one's family taken away by some supernatural worm.
