Weekly Games Update: The war goes on - Call of Duty: World at War, Red Alert, Gears of War 2, Rockman 3 DS, Mirror's Edge, Valkyria Chronicles, World of WarCraft expansion pack & much more!


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

As the holiday season draws nearer and nearer, game developers push their products out, resulting in a flood of games in our warehouses.

Not only are there a lot of games, but most of them are block busters. Call of Duty: World At War allows players to participate in WWII, one of the largest scale wars that inspired gamers and developers alike.

Go from WWII to WWIII in Command and Conquer 3: Red Alert. Technology goes astray in this episode and everything goes beyond you wildest fancies. In an attempt to bring glory to your motherland, you travelled to a different time dimension, from this point onwards, you need to show whoever crosses your path that you are the boss!.

Aside from battling earthly forces, you can battle Locusts in Gears of War 2 that is threatening to overtake humanity. Please see this special report on the shipping status of the game and its related products.

Mankind is frequently under attack, the theme of technology against humans is a popular theme. Ryuusei no Rockman 3 [Black Ace and Red Joker] is a game based on such themes. Transform your armor and weapons in this hot DS release and eradicate the errors made by humans.

Sometimes freedom, or a sense of freedom need not be won over bloodshed. Shaun White Snowboarding and MotorStorm: Pacific Rift are games where speed is the liberating agent. Tear all chains that ties you to reality by accelerating down snowy slopes or storming through muddy paths.

Mirror's Edge combines liberating speeds with intense combat. Instead of pitting technology or aliens at you, you fall prey to hostile organizations that seeks to get their hands on, or destroy whatever secrets you are bearing. These people will stop at nothing, so run while you can.

WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009 takes away the speed factor and increased the combat elements by multi-fold. With its co-op story mode, you can take down any opponents with a friend. On your own, you are great, together, you are unstoppable.

The struggles are nothing less spectacular in the Japanese games. Localized for English speaking audiences, the engaging story and innovative strategic battle system in Valkyrie Chronicles are made available for the rest of the world.

Globalization opened up the Ninja industry for all highly qualified people to join in. Admire how seamlessly you can launch your ninja moves on your PlayStation3 in Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm [Limited and Standard Editions].

Besides Ninja, you can be a Samurai in Samurai Dou 3 [Asian & JPN versions]. Freedom of play is one of the main attractions of the game, you can stay loyal to a cause or betray your employers. Everything is up to you in this game, just bear in mind what effects your actions will have on the land, as the state's future rests within your hands.

Another hot game that launches today is World of WarCraft : Wrath of the Lich King Expansion Pack. Please see this special news on details with regards to the game and its related products.
