WEEKLY SPECIAL: Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed, The Last of Us, Tearaway + MORE!


AKIBA'S TRIP: UNDEAD & UNDRESSED

PlayStation®4 [Action]

Akihabara, famous for otaku culture, maid cafes and, uh, blood sucking demons? Blood sucking demons who can be killed by stripping them? Sounds just like Akihabara!

That's right - return to the streets of this famous district as an otaku caught up in a bizarre conspiracy wherein the logical course of action is to beat up demons, strip them naked, expose them to the sun and nervously laugh as their naked demon corpse melts away.

Sequel to the original Akiba's TripAkiba's Trip 2 features over 130 real world shops and faithfully recreates Akihabara as the stage for stripping. There are also a multitude of weapons and items to choose from to aid Akiba in his quest (seriously, if you've seen the gameplay videos, then you know there are a lot)! Introducing an AI controlled partner and the new UNISON STRIP SYSTEM! If Akiba's Trip 2 sounds awesome, it's because it is!

Exclusively for the PS4 edition, aside from the obvious graphical upgrade, players will find that this version will have faster load times as well as a lot more characters on the streets of Akihabara.

TEARAWAY

PlayStation®Vita [Platform]

Tearaway takes players on an adventure through a vibrant world made of paper alongside your new friend Iota (or the female Atoi), a plucky messenger with a unique message to deliver to YOU but the pesky Scraps aren't going to make that very easy!

Tearaway is a third person platformer that really opens itself up to the imagination of the player. It is actually developed by the same team (Media Molocule) who made Little Big Planet, another fan-favourite also largely inspired by player-imagination.

This paper world is small enough to hold in your own two hands, allowing you to reach into the game with your god-like powers and manipulate it using nearly every single one of the PSVita's various input sensors. Pull trees out of the ground, smite enemies, and take full control of the world around you!

Papercraft can even be brought out of the world, as players can collect papercraft designs in-game which can be printed out which is a lot more fun than you might initially expect!

THE LAST OF US

PlayStation®3 [Action Adventure]

A title like The Last Of Us needs little introduction; as one of the most celebrated games of 2013 with over 200 Game of the Year awards, this PlayStation exclusive has captivated the entire gaming industry!

Join Joel and Ellie's adventure as they cross what remains of the United States and survive attacks from the infected, hostile human survivors, cannibals and other apocolyptic obstacles. You'll find yourself fighting for suvival just to experience the next chapter in this thrilling tale.

The combat and gameplay in TLOU takes place in the hands of Joel, with Ellie being a helpful AI (with actual depth of character!). While combat and defeating enemies with the use of rifles, shotguns, bows, or melee weapons is central to the game there are periods without combat, often involving conversation between the characters and puzzles/obstacles to overcome.

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: A LINK BETWEEN WORLDS

Nintendo 3DS™ [Adventure]

A Link Between Worlds manages to combine a tribute to A Link to the Past and a brand new game concept into one amazing title. Making use of the graphical and 3D capabilities of the 3DS the world, and especially the dungeons, will look slightly different from previous installations. 

The biggest feature is definitely the new skill provided to Link! At the expense of a new purple meter (a type of energy) Link can become a drawing to cling onto walls and move along them horizontally.

Making use of the 3DS user interface the top screen shows the main game, while the bottom screen shows the map, Rupees, item buttons (X and Y), and a button that has been labeled "Collect," which allows players to open a twenty-slot inventory. The touch screen has a similar appearance to that of the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time. The A button controls basic actions like transforming while the B button is dedicated to the sword.

DEAD SPACE 3

PlayStation®3 [Action Adventure]

Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver and the drop-in and out online coop character Sgt. John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. 

Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, players must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. He will then put his engineering skills to the ultimate test to create and customize weapons and survival tools. 

Aside from the returning Necromorphs, Dead Space 3 features a large cast of new enemies. One example is the Waster, whose attacks change depending on how it is dismembered; while another is the Nexus, an insect-like giant that can crush or swallow people whole. Other obstacles in Dead Space 3 include a new human enemy, Unitologist soldiers; and environmental hazards like falling machinery and a giant mining drill.

Dead Space 3 features fun gameplay and a coop that is a nice change of pace, but expect more action than horror out of the title.

KINGDOM HEARTS 3D: DREAM DROP DISTANCE

Nintendo 3DS™ [Action RPG]

Drop into the magical world of Kingdom Hearts in an adventure that spans dreams, time, memories, and the darkness of human hearts. 

Taking place immediately after the events of Kingdom Hearts Re:codedKingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance focuses on Sora and Riku's Mark of Mastery exam in which they have to protect parallel worlds in preparation of the return of Master Xehanort.

To tell such a tale, the Drop system has been created; players will be switching back and forth between the two different convergent narratives depending on a set time - convenient as the respective stories of Sora and Riku become equally important.

Also, the new Flowmotion battle system empowers players with the ability to traverse in acrobatic ways, creating a fresh and new approach towards Keyblade combat.

ARMY OF TWO: THE DEVIL'S CARTEL (OVERKILL EDITION)

Xbox360™ [Action]

Sometimes, just sometimes, our base lizard impulses become so overwhelming as the parsel-tongue whispers coaxing for destruction turn the brain faders up to ELEVEN screaming for things to be blown the @!#?@! up. You can't deny it, but to follow though would be entirely sociopathic, so enter the Army of Two. No longer do we need to keep these urges to ourselves either; hence the nomenclature, bond with a buddy over bloodlust and destruction, because what's the point in mass boom boom when you can't even share it with another?

Taking no qualms for what it represents, Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, is a unbridled popcorn shooter targeted at those who just like to see objects and foes torn asunder via high speed projectile style. Ratatatter the world of Devil's Cartel through the Frostbite 2 Engine (of Battlefield 3 fame) and build up the new Overkill meter; literally channel and unleash the spirits of teflon for nigh invincibility rendering all who stand in your way into a gooey red mist of victory. Ah sweet release...

FIRE EMBLEM: AWAKENING

Nintendo 3DS™ [Strategy RPG]

As one of the highest rated games of 2013, the 3DS debut of Fire Emblem is something still worth celebrating!

The new Dual System allows players to attack in chains, place their troops around an enemy, and when one of them kick start the attack, the ally closest to him joins, giving you more power. The options of casual play and classic play come back. A gamer can decide on the difficulty level, your fallen allies are resurrected after every battle when you choose casual, otherwise they die permanently.

This tactical masterpiece will have you paying attention to every move - and though there is a new casual setting for accessibility, strategy aficionados will most likely blaze their way through the classic mode!

March to battle under the Emblem of Fire! The dragon protector and the dragon destroyer have awakened, and this time they send their soldiers to a war until one side is completely annihilated.
