WEEKLY SPECIAL: Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd, CoD: Advanced Warfare & More


Welcome to our Weekly Special! Every week we feature a selection of video game titles for less so you can play without all the pay! We have a great mix of both genres and platforms for you to choose from!

Following the Weekly Specials tradition, there is no maximum number of purchase. Please bear in mind that you cannot use any further coupons or free shipping with our Weekly Special offers.


CASTLEVANIA DAWN OF SORROW

Nintendo 3DS™ [Action]

Set in the year 2036, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow picks up one year after the events of Aria of Sorrow (GBA). A mysterious cult, unhappy that Soma Cruz failed to fulfill his destiny and become the reincarnation of Dracula, seeks to sacrifice our hero so it can bring about a new dark lord. Rather than wait for his enemies to come to him, Soma decides to go on the offensive, which leads him to an all-too-familiar castle.

Following in the footsteps of recent Castlevania games, the series' DS debut features RPG elements and a labyrinthine map rife with secrets and special weapons. Aria of Sorrow's heralded Tactical Soul system returns as well, allowing you to learn new powers and abilities by capturing the souls of your vanquished foes.

As you control the action on the bottom screen, the top screen will display enemy and player information or a map that's updated in real time as you explore the castle. While that may not sound like the most glamorous use of the dual screens, Castlevania disciples can attest to how valuable a persistent view of the map will be when you're trying to find a secret room or remember the location of that previously unreachable platform.

HATSUNE MIKU PROJECT DIVA F 2ND

PlayStation®3 [Rhythm]

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is the incredible sequel to one of the most popular rhythm game franchises in existence. Virtual superstar Hatsune Miku returns with the entirety of her Vocaloid entourage in an encore that keeps many of the themes from the previous title intact! 

Project Diva F 2nd will play much like the first while including new songs and sliding touchscreen notes, and double scratch notes!

As such, no rhythm game can make it big without a solid track list, and so the new songs being added to the lineup include:

  • "Akatsuki Arrival" (アカツキアライヴァル?) by Last Note
  • "Spoofing Genga" (なりすましゲンガー?) by KulfiQ
  • "This is the Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee" (こちら、幸福安心委員会です。?) by Utata-P

CALL OF DUTY: ADVANCED WARFARE

PlayStation®4 [FPS]

Prepare for a new era of battle in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the highly anticipated release of the acclaimed Call of Duty Series. This first person shooter, developed by Sledgehammer Games, brings the franchise's action to a whole new level by combining a plausible futuristic storyline, impressive gameplay mechanics, and its signature action altogether for a gaming experience like no other!

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare allows players get a glimpse of how the world might be if PMC's (Private Military Corporations) were no longer cooperating with nations, but instead taking over themselves. Set in such a dystopian future where PCM's are the leading military service provider, follow Jonathan and Mitchelle as the latter joins the leading PCM known as Atlas; Jonathan Irons (played by award-winning Kevin Spacey), the leader of Atlas, will use whatever it takes to execute his plans.

Futuristic timelines call for futuristic weapons and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare doesn't disappoint! With over the top guns, ability sets, technology, and vehicles, including highly specialized drones and hoverbikes, you are an indestructible weapon yourself. The game also introduces exoskeleton technology that maximizes every soldier's ability, lethality, and potential while brilliantly eliminates the need for specialization. Choose between standard ammunition and an all new class of energy weapons to suit your style of gameplay.

HEROES OF RUIN

Nintendo 3DS™ [Action RPG]

War raged for over a hundred years until strong, powerful Lords emerged from the fighting to bring a fragile peace to the land. But this peace is threatened when one of the Lords, Ataraxis, ruler of the city of Nexus, is taken ill by a deadly curse.

A call is sent out, promising rewards beyond measure for anyone who finds a cure. Four mercenaries, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and motivations answer the call. One uses forbidden spells to rain death on her foes, one has guns and bombs to blast his way through, another has a mighty sword capable of slicing through entire packs of enemies, and lastely one gains strength from savagely tearing through anything that stands in his way with brutal, bladed fists.

These unlikely heroes can choose to create a fearsome alliance or venture forth from the city alone. Beyond the safety of the city the land is filled with strange and dangerous creatures, but none as deadly as the evil force behind the curse, which the heroes must eventually confront and destroy.

ROOT REXX

PlayStation®Vita [Romance Adventure]

"In order to revive REXX, I'll do anything!"

Not allowed to show their faces in public and do live shows, the band members are represented by mascots of themselves in promotional videos. Even so, they grew popular through word-of-mouth, and eventually garnered attention from all over the world.

However, without ever releasing a second single, they announced that they would go on an indefinite hiatus. A reason was never provided for this and caused a lot of confusion. Despite this, their debut single still sold well, and they gained more and more fans each day. Before they knew it, industry insiders started to call them the "legendary" band.

About a year later, the protagonist (Mochizuki Kazune), becomes fascinated by REXX's music. She finds a demo CD of at the school she transferred to. To her surprise, the demo CD contained an unreleased and unannounced REXX song! On top of that, there she meets five high school students who introduced themselves as REXX band members.

Upon hearing that the five guys no longer intend to perform Kazune is determined to revive the REXX that once was.

LAYTON KYOUJU VS GYAKUTEN SAIBAN

Nintendo 3DS™ [Puzzle / Adventure]

The game is broken into two different parts ('Adventure' and 'Witch Trial') as the two title characters (and you of course) use their different sets of expertise to crack the ultimate case - and figure out how they got to the medieval land of Labyrinthia in the first place!

The two gameplay modes give the player a chance to experience the two distinct genres that Layton and Wright hail from. The 'Adventure' mode is based off of the Professor Layton franchise and encourages exploration of your environment (Labyrinthia) as well as the people in it. Controls will be similar to that of Miracle Mask, using the cursor to navigate areas and investigate further.

The 'Witch Trial' takes the action to the courtroom with players taking control of Phoenix Wright in order defend his client. Through attentive cross-examination of witnesses you will come across errors and contradictions in their testimony. Pressing one witness can make another react, possibly providing new clues and evidence. Players can use the Court Record, which contains evidence on the case as well as the Grand Grimoire, a book of magic spells which can also be used as evidence. Hint coins found during the Adventure segments can also be used during trials, providing hints on how the player should progress.
