WATCHDOGS

PlayStation®4 [Open World Action Adventure]

Add another game to your list of ‘must play’ open-world action games! You are Aiden Pearce – a vigilante who has incredible potential when it comes to hacking - whatever he (or you) feel like, and with a plethora of devices to break into.

Watch Dogs can easily be labelled as a GTA for the technological gangsters. Instead of stealing cars, you are stealing something much more valuable: information, and a lot of it. Find specific targets to eliminate, or scan the crowd for a victim to latch your bugs onto.

Retrieve bank data, hack phones, their demographic information – all to either catch them yourself or save them if their life is important to your interests. There is more to the game that just being a hack-sim, you also have to do the dirty work yourself!

Combat has a large focus on stealth mechanics and parkour so you can get around fast and evade or close in on enemies in a Third Person Shooter-style. Follow the digital connections as you track people’s every move – but not just people, the whole city of Chicago. As the main setting for the game, you will experience beautifully created graphics that do justice to the real city.

LOST DIMENSION

PS®Vita [RPG]

From the development team alone, FuRyu's new title is looking to be a great RPG to look forward to!

Lost Dimension's team consists of the Japanese game studio Lancrese, who previously helped in the making of the first Etrian Odyssey and Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Yoshiaki Yamaguchi, the artist of Gravity Rush, and Jun Kumagai, writer of the successful Persona 3 movies. What's more, previews from Japanese game publications have made note that gameplay is highly reminiscent ofValkyria Chronicles and Sakura Wars! 

Taking place in a post dystopian future not too far from the present, the game revolves around Sho Kasugai and his special ability called "Vision" - his powers of premonition are essential in saving people from mass destruction against a mysterious enemy known as "The End." Recognizing Sho's power, the UN forms a team named S.E.A.L.E.D. to track him down. 

Without giving away too much, from what's been said about the story, player can expect an exciting tale of tension, betrayal,  and redemption. This coupled with the expectations from the dev team as well as some great 3rd person tactical strategy is something all fans of JRPGS can be excited about!

SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI: DEVIL SURVIVOR 2 RECORD BREAKER (W/ FREE MUSIC CD)

Nintendo 3DS™ [RPG]

While receiving positive reception from Gamers and critics alike, the original Devil Survivor 2 for the Nintendo DS alienated some with it's high level of difficulty and lack of innovation in the tactical RPG genre. With Devil Survivor 2: Break Record, Atlus has enhanced the title, with extra features including voice acting for most if not all dialogue, a new female character, and an extra scenario which can be considered as a standalone RPG in itself!

Set within a story of a group of Japanese high school students who enter a pact which enable them to summon demons, common to the Shin Megami Series, this group must fight mysterious creatures and prevent the destruction of Japan.

Gameplay revolves around a 3v3 battle phase, and battle is presented as first person traditional turn based; players will be controlling one character and 2 summoned demons. Just like Persona, the "Extra Turn" mechanic is a huge factor in success, as being able to chain up attacks by exploiting the weaknesses of enemies becomes a huge strategy. As well, players can steal enemies skills.

Outside of battle, the story unfolds differently depending on the player's actions and interactions with other characters throughout the game as they explore the country, with the result being multiple branching endings. Your interactions with the other demon users will create close bonds with them allowing you to befriend characters as well as experience conflict between them; this is called the "Fate System." 

With the new content, is the game is split into two scenarios, both accessible from the beginning. The first one is the "Septentrione Arc" which us the scenario from the original title; the "Triangulum Arc" continues immediately and cumulates the experience with brand new cut scenes and even characters! 

As well, for Devil Survivor 2 aficionados, Break Record comes in two difficulties that players can select between: the casual "Gospel" difficulty or the standard "Apocalypse" difficulty.

Launch Edition Free Bonus: “Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker Arranged Soundtrack” CD, Decals, and Collectible Outer Box.

By sending the most resilient of all of Earth's species first, Mars becomes finally habitable through the slow influence of the common roach, yet when the time came for mankind to claim their new home, they were not prepared for what they saw - these terraformers had transformed at a frightening pace into humanoid roaches with a frightful intelligence - a perverse possibility of evolution, and man's biggest threat.

Davis (Blast Ant). There are other characters yet to be confirmed, but it's been shown that one can even play as a Gold Terraformar!
