TOMB RAIDER DEFINITIVE EDITION

PlayStation®4 [Action Adventure]

Lara Croft invites game enthusiasts once more into her pistol-wielding origins story in Tomb Raider Definitive Edition. Developed by Crystal Dynamic the Definitive Edition doesn't make large changes from the last generation's editions in terms of gameplay but there is no debate about how it looks on next gen consoles: damn good. This Tomb Raider title emphasizes the remodeled origins of Lara. Stunningly realistic graphical improvements coupled with the already existing intense gameplay and a riveting storyline makes this title a must-have for Action Adventure fans - especially at a new low price!

For the very first time in the Tomb Raider series multiplayer options will be available. Players can compete with each other across several different multiplayer maps and modes, which includes: Team Death Match (a simple player vs. player combat scenario). Private Rescue (a time limited mode in which certain class of teams are assigned to accomplished specific tasks), and lastly the Cry for Help mode (a team needs to accomplished a task and survive being hunted by the others). In all three modes, destructible environment and acquired weapons can be carried over from the single player campaign.

HALO THE MASTER CHIEF COLLECTION

XboxONE™ [Action / Multi-pack]

In a salute to fans, Master Chief's entire story is finally available on one system! The Master Chief Collection will be featuring a beautifully re-mastered Halo 2: Anniversary, along with Halo: Combat Evolved AnniversaryHalo 3, and Halo 4,  the new digital series Halo: Nightfall, and access to the Halo 5: Guardians Beta -- seriously guys, this is the full Halo experience.

It seems Microsoft and 343 Industries' goal with MCC is to familiarize new players with the expansive story in preparation for Halo 5's release, but they are doing so much more than just upgrading some textures. Halo 2 will have extra narrative points scattered throughout the game, a sort of breadcrumb trail left by the developers to give players a deeper and more detailed understanding of the Arbiter.  Blur Studio is also creating a narrative for the prologue and epilogue of the Master Chief Collection as well as roughly 50 minutes of cinematic footage; designed for those who haven't delved into the franchise's vast amounts of expanded fiction. 

Returning veterans (all players, really) will enjoy the fact that every campaign mission from every game is unlocked from the start! This gives 343 Industries the chance to introduce curated playlists that allows you to jump around the best moments from all four games' campaigns back to back. 

Like it's predecessor you will be able to instantly switch between old and new graphics, and when they say instantly they mean it. There is no pause when you make the swap, in fact the live demo during the presentation showed the player jumping back and forth between the two, in the middle of battle, with no technical repercussions. 

The Halo love doesn't slow down there: every map that's ever shipped for a Halo game is included in the MCC, that even includes maps that were exclusive to PC ports of the first two titles. Six of Halo 2's classic maps have received a complete graphical overhaul.

DEMON GAZE

PlayStation®Vita [Dungeon RPG]

Kadokawa and Experience studios have brought a brand new face to the genre of Dungeon RPGs! Demon Gaze combines exciting battles, eerie labyrinths, and incredibly immersive scenes that grab the player and drag them directly into the story. The story throws players into a world where they are the owner of 'a third eye'. These chosen warriors have the power to subdue demons and even recruit them into their arsenal.

With your team of demons in tow, set out to the labyrinths of Misrid to fulfill various tasks and missions. Demons have specific powers, and can be very useful during battle, however, be careful, because they can go berserk and attack your comrades if you mess up! And besides battling monsters, you also have to brave the heart-pounding naughty events that the girls will almost definitely involve you in. Harem!

HYPERDIMENSION NEPTUNIA RE;BIRTH1

PlayStation®Vita [RPG]

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is a complete revamp of the original PS3 title Hyperdimension Neptunia - including a laundry list of improvements to the graphics, battle system, game mechanics, and events!

The fourth wall takes a pretty obvious beating in Rebirth 1, set in the the world of 'Gameindustri' - protected by four power-hungry Goddesses called 'CPU'. The whole game is littered with video game references - and the incredibly meta 'Console War' is a pretty apt parody of the last generation of consoles. Players will take on the role of Neptune, whose childish personality and plethora of energy makes for a fun character to journey with!

The battle system is a huge improvement on its own and borrows the system used in Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, abandoning the traditional standing line-up battles featured previously and replacing it with a free-movement combat system. Returning players will find the 'Scout System' missing and the 'Remake System' in its place. This new system allows players to customize and make changes to to the game itself by obtaining plans for discs.

MASS EFFECT 3

PlayStation®3 [TPS RPG]
