Welcome to our Weekly Special! Every week we feature a selection of titles for less so you can play without all the pay! This week we packed the lineup with Japanese RPGs and other insanely fun titles!

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.


TALES OF XILLIA 2

PlayStation®3 [RPG]

The follow up to the critically acclaimed Tales of XilliaToX 2 takes place one year after the climatic events of the previous title - where the two worlds, Rieze Maxia and Elympios, are no longer separated by the barrier. Elympios is a world of technological advancement gained through the use of Spyrix, whereas Rieze Maxia is a previously isolated land which relies on spirit artes and nature. 

Tales of Xillia 2 follows Ludger Will Kresnik, who comes from a particularly special family with the ability to destroy alternative timelines. Throughout the character's journey the player will be able to decide how to react to various characters and situations that will later branch out into different paths. Your choices will make all the difference; the central theme of the title being 'Sentaku ga Mirai wo Tsumugu RPG' or 'an RPG where your choices determine the future'. 

The battle sequences in the title use the "Cross Dual Raid Linear Motion Battle System" - where four characters are chosen to battle and the non-player controlled characters are set instructions by the player beforehand. The "Assault Counter" denotes the number of skills and actions a character can perform and recharges over time. Skill usage costs "Technical Points" which can be refilled by attacking or using items. The game will be featuring the Linking System from the original Tales of Xillia, in which players can team up or link up to other players in battle to destroy enemies and support robust linked artes attacks. Swap weapons with the new "Weapon Swap Mechanic" while in battle where players can switch between three main weapons: a sledgehammer, dual blades, and dual pistols in real-time combat!

ALIEN ISOLATION

PlayStation®3 [Action / Stealth]

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.
