Weekly Games Update: Excitement in the elections spread into the gamers - Tom Clancy's EndWar, 007: Quantum Solace, Resistance2, Legendary, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Valkyrie Profile DS & much more!

Welcome to this week's Games Update, our weekly summary featuring all new product arrivals from the last seven days.

Hot titles came in torrents, mirroring the American election hype that has reached its climax yesterday. Same as the political atmosphere, the stream of this weeks' releases tend to be nerve wreakingly exciting.

Participate in the third World War that may end all wars and humanity in Tom Clancy's EndWar. But before a full world war could launch, spy activities must take place. As part of the promotional campaign for the new 007 film, James Bond: Quantum of Solace is out on your home consoles.

But sometimes technology may go awry, especially when they get fused with biology. Become the hero Sgt. Nathan Hale in Resistance 2 and fight both the Chimera, a set of war machines and the virus that threatens to turn you into the enemy of mankind.

You may have realized that your 3rd generation consoles are just as powerful as the famous spy's gadgets in his movies, these consoles make all sorts of mythological monsters come to life on your screen. Fight these swarming beasts for the survival of humanity in Legendary [PlayStation3™, Xbox360™ US, Asian versions, PC-Game].

Challenge your environment through sports instead of firearms in Motorstorm: Pacific Rift. The racer takes its participants to a tropical paradise for this season's races. The game blurs the line between virtual and reality by its accurate portrayal of the environment's physics. Take your mind off your current troubles and burst through the jungle.

Besides challenging the environment, try to live in harmony with it. Madagascar 2, the jungle adventure came out this week. Have fun with your madcap team of friends and strive to save the African savannah in this family adventure.

The newest Nintendo handheld console, NDSi's [black version, white version] debut this week heightens gamers' excitement. Aside from spotting cameras and a larger screen, the new console allows players to access an online shop so they could buy games on the go.

Following the hype aroused by the new portable systems, two new RPGs came out. Valkyrie Profile: Toga Seoumono deepens the title's universe by featuring the darkness and hatred born along with honour while Avalon Code features the birth of a new world.

Besides games, a number of interesting OSTs are also released. Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer Original Soundtrack will prepare you for the new hit horizontal shooter on the PlayStation3™.
