Weekly Game Release News: Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse, Summon Night 5, and Metro: Last Light!

Welcome to our Weekly Game Release News! Though the releases are few this week, the quality definitely makes up for this! Much to fan favor, 2 games that almost didn't make it are out and a long sought visual novel adventure is ready to sweep imaginations away!


PlayStation3™/ Xbox360™/ PC [First Person Shooter]

Sequel to the atmospheric post apocalyptic Metro 2033, this uniquely Russian approach towards a first person shooter with heavy survival horror elements is ready to enthrall players into the dark subterranean once again. 

Humanity is akin to the average tunnel rat, as the surface world has been rendered caustic if not highly dangerous. Underneath the sickly pallor of airborne death, Mankind has to resort to a vast network of underground connections for continued sustainability. Yet, throughout this organized chaos is an even greater threat; the remnants from human casualties return as ravenous mutants, and humanity has always been known to rear it's ugly side during dire times. 

Make sense of this chaos in this highly immersive single player FPS; boasting new technology that leads the way in lighting and physics for all platforms, escape the deep by hiding in the dark in Metro: Last Light.

Sony PSP™ [Tactical RPG]

In 2010, the original developer for this longtime series closed down; it was assumed that another Summon Night would not see the light of day. Thankfully, heeding fan demand, Bandai Namco has stepped in, and the newest iteration of Summon Night is finally available!

A resurrection if not a rebirth, this game features new a brand new take on the series while faithfully retaining the spirit of the originals. With a brand new art style where player characters are realistically proportioned, the old FF:Tactics-esque chibi mode will not be missed! As well, with the addition of an in-game character model viewer, one can easily appreciate this new design approach.

Taking place centuries after the events of Summon Night 3, employ powerful party based attacks and use the new Awaken abilities with Cross Partners for perfect tactical execution.

PlayStation3™/ Xbox360™ [Visual CG Novel Adventure]

The entire human population has been decimated by a force mankind was ill prepared for. 1953 was the year of the BETA (Beings of Extra Terrestrial Origin) - any positive response towards contact with an alien species has been henceforth wiped away as any mention of these invaders elicits angry memories of helplessness and genocide. With no viable solution, Humanity's remaining path of existence solely relies on use of experimental tech; enter the TSF - the Tactical Surface Fighter - giant mechas unproven in battle controlled by pilots equally unprepared for the onslaught ahead. 

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse is a story of struggle, dilemma and even potential romances though conflict. Players are wrought with the heavy burden of ensuring the continued survival of mankind and the destruction of the BETA; follow Top Gun Yuya Bridges as he leads his international brigade into battle. Can the higher goal of liberty break down barriers between the differences of Yuya's team?
