Weekly Games Update: Uncharted 2, Brutal Legend, Beatmania Empress, Full Metal Alchemist PSP, White Comic, Witch's Tale , Ookami JPN Wii vers. & much much more!



Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days. This is another interesting week for we have treasure hunting adventures with Uncharted 2, a guitar legend that goes crazy in Brutal Legend, rhythm games with the Empress and the final arrival of the US version of Magna Carta 2.

Uncharted 2 is doubtlessly the highlight of the week. Join Drake and his band of thieves on a journey to find the city of Shambala and the riches this mythical city holds and fight the ambitious war criminal who seeks a deeper secret within the ancient city.

High speed action, stunning graphics and fun online game modes, this is one arduous journey with very attractive rewards.

If you survive, that is.

Heavy metal kills. Literally. The guitar is mightier than the sword in a Brutal Legend. Lead your team of undeads, headbangers and and barbarians on a quest to overthrow the overlords. Use your guitar skills to kill friends and foes alike and play more music at their graves.

With a powerful soundtrack to accompany the unrelenting action, this is a brutal heavy metal adventure you cannot miss.

Try other genres if heavy metal is not your cup of tea. Empress, the newest beatmania game features high tension dance beats and Jpop songs that emphasize the glamour of girls. Not only are there catchy songs, there are beautiful visuals that fits the theme and an album with fan favourites from througout the beatmania series.

Try your hand at alchemy in Full Metal Alchemist. The blade and your ability to create items at a split second's notice are crucial to your winning. Trust between comrades is very important, form tag teams with familiar characters and let them take care of the defense and form combination attacks with you.

Crossovers are really in vogue now, two best selling manga magazines Shonen Sunday and Shonen Magazine are pooling their manga boys and girls together and shoving them into a new White Comic dimension. Under your direction, your favourite characters are going to fight, go on an adventure or act in a love comedy.

Halloween is coming, it's time the little devils and witches come out. Lydia in Witch's Tale accidentally released the evil witch from her seal and must now set off to seal her back in. If you fancy imposing order on the demons as a god, you can be Amaterasu, the sun goddess in Okami and use the sacred runes to seal the demons.

Here is a summary of all the games that came out within the last seven days, followed by and excerpt of games coming next week that are expected to be hot.
