METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION

PlayStation®3 [Stealth / Action]

From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, MGS: The Legacy Collection offers the most complete Metal Gear experience ever! Featuring eight complete games, Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, MGS 1, MGS2: HD Edition, MGS3: HD Edition, MGS4: Trophy Edition, MGS: Peace Walker HD Edition, and MGS: VR Missions. The Legacy Collection offers Metal Gear and stealth action fans a chance to experience all the heroic game play, compelling design, and immersive storytelling of the MGS franchise in one complete package.

The "Metal Gear" series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan's master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The series has become a global phenomenon, with over 33 million copies sold worldwide. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series' popularity-the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.

The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society. These elements have made MGS what it is today: a mature work of entertainment that transcends national borders and the confines of video games, and one of the leading products of the Japanese content business.

PlayStation®3 [FPS]

Future Solider: In the escalating political climate of the near future, where strategies on the battlefield must be delicately balanced with maneuvers at the negotiating table, a new breed of soldier has arisen. Trained to be better than the best and outfitted with the most comprehensive array of high-tech gear ever assembled, the future soldier stands apart by his ability to remain undetected. He slips unseen behind enemy lines. He uses the perfect combination of diplomacy and force to achieve his objectives while remaining politically invisible. You are a Ghost. Armed to the teeth with an arsenal of real-world high-tech weaponry only in prototype today, you are an F-16 on legs, trained to lock-on to your objective even in the world’s most complex, high-risk war-zones. 

Advanced Warfighter 2: It's 2014, and the soldier of the future returns to encounter a new and more imminent threat along the recently completed wall on the U.S./Mexico border. The Ghosts are more powerful with an upgraded Integrated Warfighter System (IWS) but will have only 72 hours to assess the threat and prevent the rebels from reaching U.S. soil. With a border that's 1,900 miles long and an enemy that doesn't play by the rules, this is a job for the Ghosts.

ATTOUTEKI YUUGI: MUGEN SOULS Z

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

Mugen Souls Z aka Attouteki Yuugi: Mugen Souls Z is a Japanese RPG featuring an abundant free-roaming battle map, exceptional turn-based combat, huge amounts of customization, a level cap of 9999, and billions of enemy damage points to quench even the most hardcore RPG fan's thirst!

Following the story of the first game, players take control of the new protagonist Syrma, who meets Chou-Chou before the end of the first game’s events. Travel across twelve nonsensical worlds of ridiculousness with your very own spaceship and unfold tricks and secrets abound on each world. Root for Syrma as she stops an ancient threat to her world that has recently awakened.

Players also have the opportunity to create heroes of their own; they can dress them as they want and kill how they want. Deal outrageous damage in the hundreds of millions using the “Damage Carnival” (a limit break of it's own) and marvel on the resulting havoc that's over 9000! This is as over the top as it gets in an ultimate adventure with a cast of overwhelming characters!

SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI: DEVIL SURVIVOR

Nintendo DS™ [SRPG]

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor is easily one of the best games on the Nintendo DS, and it is probably accurate to go as far as to say it is amongst the best strategy RPGs on any platform.

Players take the role of an unnamed human as he and his friends find themselves in the middle of a Tokyo crisis. Tokyo is sealed off by the Japanese Self-Defense Forces, trapping everyone inside. Mythological demons have begun appearing all over the city, summoned by mysterious Nintendo DS-like devices called COMPs. The hero and his friends receive COMPs of their own from the protagonist's cousin, Naoya, and quickly begin using demons to defend both themselves and others.

Devil Survivor's story is divided into seven days. Each day has a basic plot to follow, but there are also a number of side-stories that you can complete at your own choosing.

You'll hear no objection from us when it comes to putting Phoenix Wright on the Weekly Special! A point-and-click/puzzle adventure game, where you not only get to conduct intense courtroom proceedings, but also perform your own investigative work, including finding evidence and interviewing witnesses!

What makes Phoenix Wright stand out is the incredible characters and engaging script. It is not often you find a game that blends the serious nature of the law with comedy, but Phoenix Wright's manga-inspired world is not your everyday game!

The reoccurrence of characters throughout the cases will lead characters down a road of discovery, as you find out more about Phoenix and his associates. This is only helped by having a cast of individuals, with each character having been obviously well thought out. 


Phoenix Wright: Ace AttorneyNintendo DSUS US$ 29.9924h

Nintendo DS™

Following the success of Phoenix Wright in the US, Capcom knew they had to give the Ace Attorney fans something to chew on! Enter Justice For All, even more of the same point and click mystery lawyering that we love!

Justice For All makes very slight improvements, but is mainly a form of episodic release, giving us more of the great characters, dialogue, and storylines - even if the gameplay has undergone very minute changes. Although you will definitely enjoy the game if you've played the first, it is not a prerequisite! Meeting the characters for the first time in Justice For All will be just as satisfying!

As you did in the first game, players will make use of the touch screen to examine profiles, view evidence, press witnesses for more information, and, of course, raise objections so that you may present evidence. The new gameplay feature in Justice for All is the "psyche-lock," where you'll see chains and locks appear over a person when they have a secret that they don't want to share!

PlayStation®3 [Third Person Shooter]

EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF! EDF!

Insect Armageddon prompts players to take control of a member of the Earth Defense Force, fighting the good fight for humanity against an alien threat known as the 'Ravagers.' You don't know much about them yet, except that they're set on destroying the earth and it's up to a few lowly humans to turn them into pulp.

The basic run and shoot mechanics of the genre are intact, but the game adds some variety by having sets of classes. Each class can always carry two weapons, but they range in the amount of health and special powers they have. The assault trooper has a large amount of health and a shield, for instance, while the jet trooper has the ability to fly and move fast, but a relatively tiny amount of health.

One of the best things about EDF and Insect Armageddon is that the game doesn't take itself, or its plot for that matter, all that seriously. All in all it is an incredibly fun shooter, that throws you into insane and often hilarious situations.

Xbox360™ [Action Adventure]

Assassin's Creed: Rogue takes place during the Seven Years War, a conflict between France and England during the 18th century, and acts as a sequel to Black Flag and a prequel to ACIII, with the final stages of the game acting as a prologue for Unity. A little confusing, yes.

In a lot of ways Rogue is a way for the AC developers to bring back the incredibly well-recieved naval mechanics from Black Flag. The protagonist Shay Patrick Cormac captains the ship Morrigan, and has even more maritime mechanics available to him than his predecessor. 

New features include ship-based weapons such as releasing an oil slick which can then be ignited, Puckle guns (oldschool revolver turrets), and the ability for enemies to board during ship-to-ship combat. The game also features non-naval additions like the use of poisonous gas as a weapon, and improved hand-to-hand combat (think Batman: Arkham).
