TEARS TO TIARA 2 (HEIR OF THE OVERLORD)

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

Tears to Tiara II: Heir of the Overlord is an intense strategy RPG, but with a unique story that unfolds much more like a visual novel. As a distant sequel to Tears to Tiara it is not neccesary to have played the previous title in order to fully appreciate the game. In fact if you are a fan of strategy RPG's and Japanese storytelling in general then we probably have a match! The US release will receive subtitle localization in English, but the voices will remain as the original Japanese.

Embark on the tale of Hamilcar Barca, the last heir to Hispania's royal throne, as he fights to reclaim his land from the Divine Empire! Hamilcar will fight alongside an entire cast of deep characters, the cutest elephants you've ever seen, and even the gods themselves as he learns to control the demon within.

The unique combat is at times a tool for the story, and as such may take a backseat - but is in no way boring! Over 15 main characters, plus side characters and even beasts, can be recruited into your party to allowing you the freedom to build YOUR own strategy. One of the many mechanics is a very fun combat mechanic called Chain Stock gauge which can be charged up (by dealing/taking damage) to then unleash a 'Chain Attack'. During the Chain Attack players must hold down the attack button and release it when the circle on the screen disappears, much like in a rhythm-action game. Higher accuracy = bigger combos!

Tears to Tiara 2 orders will ship with the First Print bonus.

ALIEN: ISOLATION

PlayStation®4 [FPS / Survival Horror]

Are the rumors true? Could this be the Alien game we were promised? The Alien game we deserve!? 

Alien: Isolation is largely focused on stealth mechanics, and unlike most video game adaptations of the Alien franchise Alien: Isolation features few Aliens throughout its duration requiring the player to go unnoticed in order to survive being hunted. That doesn't mean there is no shooting, you will encounter humans and androids to get your FPS fill but it should not consume the gameplay. In fact, increasing your light or sound makes it all the easier to be found. 

All that said the most exciting aspect of the game is the Alien and it's AI, and how it will track down our protagonist. Both you and the Alien will have ways to thwart each other through the non-linear level (reportedly featuring multiple exit and entry points) but the developer's goal is to make you feel like the AI is tracking you, learning from you, and toying with you. If that isn't unnerving enough, you will be unable to track the Alien's specific location and have no information at all if the Alien is not moving. 

Adding to the immersion, the game will feature no on-screen HUD forcing you to inhibit your attention while using your inventory items to gather information. The developers even go so far as to introduce a depth-of-field effect making it impossible to see the Alien's location and what is in front of you at the same time. Alien: Isolation also features a crafting system allowing the player to create weapons and tools to defend themselves. The items used for crafting appear in randomized locations throughout the levels, forcing players to explore in order to find them on each playthrough instead of memorizing their locations.

DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE

PlayStation®3 [Fighting]

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate takes DOA5 and packs it with even more content! What makes the game so Ultimate? Take the distinct DOA fighting style and add dynamic new stages, and deadly new fighters, and gameplay changes that greatly improve the competitive aspects of the game. 

Of course the original Dead or Alive 5 had added (and retained) many features to the franchise itself; with the Power Blow, players can knock opponents in which ever direction selected; this works in tandem with multi-level stages each having its own Danger Zones. When characters are sent to said Danger Zones, a cinematic QTE dubbed Cliffhanger is activated, letting players either react or inflict more damage depending on whether or not they are defending or the aggressor. 

Along with a rich array of single-player modes including story mode, DOA5 Ultimate offers online options with arcade-style matches, tournaments, and the obligatory social features. Players can be paired into one-off matches or work their way up the leaderboards for the honor and prestige of competing in global tournaments. Competitive matches can also be watched by any player as a learning tool.

TOM CLANCY'S SPLINTER CELL: BLACKLIST

PlayStation®3 [Action]

Sam is back in his tactical suit and goggles, and he's more deadly than ever! 

The United States has a military presence in two thirds of countries around the world. A group of 12 have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist - a deadly countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. interests. Sam Fisher is the leader of the newly formed 4th Echelon unit: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Sam and his team must hunt down these terrorists by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.

Always one step ahead, the 'Killing In Motion' feature lets Sam strike with lethal precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion. Active Sprint adds some parkour gameplay by allowing him to traverse the environment easily and fluidly, climb walls and leap over barriers in order to reach his next target while on the move.

Blacklist features co-operative gameplay in which each mission can be accessed by talking with your crew inside the Paladin. "Spies vs. Mercs" competitive mode fans will enjoy the return of the gamemode in Blacklist.
