WEEKLY HIGHLIGHTS: Our Picks Of The Hottest Games This Week! Feb 22 - Feb 28

It's been awhile since we've done this, but there's just too many games to keep track of, so here's a handy guide with a heavy dosage of hype for your convenience! On to the games!


PlayStation®4 PlayStation®3 [Action RPG/Hack And Slash]

Firstly, we can't get enough of the Dragon Quest Slime in any form, so to have the potential to be swarmed by tens of thousands of these smiling little bundles of oozey death... well, let's just say we need someone to cast Hoimi right now.

Dragon Quest Heroes, Omega Force's second surprise collaboration with a huge franchise - the first being Zelda Musou - is finally now available ever since it's announcement during the SCEJapan Conference of 2014. Unveiled and given the blessing by Dragon Quest creator Yuji Hori himself, fans have been looking forward to the first ever full scale action RPG entrant to this venerable series.

With fan favorite characters and iconic foes making more than just a cameo appearence, Dragon Quest Heroes brings the stylized art of Akira Toriyama to life. With 17 playable characters, soundtrack by the legendary video game OG composer Koichi Sugiyama, and tons of content, it's time to cancel that puff-puff massage as Dragon Quest Heroes will be keeping Gamers busy for quite some time.

As the first Dragon Ball Z game for the eighth gen, this title has a lot of hype to live up to. While recent and previous titles had mixed reception to say the least, Xenoverse plans to rectify this; user reviews have been very positive, with people stating that this is the best Dragonball title in years!

With a unique take on presenting a story we've become familiar after so many years, Dragon Ball Xenoverse has a fresh approach with a story central to Trunks, time travel, and the effects external forces have on Toriyama's canon.

What makes this game even more appealing is the return of character customization; Gamers will take their individual and unique creations literally into famous DBZ scenes in order to change the flow of time and aid the heroes in their legendary battles. And let's not forget online co-op/versus missions in a fully open world with destructible environments!

For All Versions and Editions: Instant Transmission


PlayStation®3 [Fighting]


Originally released through a collab between Developer French-Bread and Arc System Works, this popular Japanese arcade title is now out for the west via Aksys! Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late (UNIEL) for the PS3 will have tons of new upgrades and updates - consider this the definitive edition!

Sporting stylish and smoothly-animated special attacks along with a variety of easy-to-perform combos, UNIEL brings lightning paced anime fighting - especially if if you hit the right ability execution you can even pull off the very aesthetically-impressive Infinite Worth Exist move!

UNIEL also includes a unique cast of characters, each possessing special abilities and weapons of their own! The biggest news coming out of the latest Famitsu is that we will be able to play the high school warrior Nanase! Rocking the stylistic oversized sword, her special attack is a spinning 'Windmill', staying out of her reach could get pretty difficult!

If variation is what you're after, you're in luck! UNIEL is packed with different game modes, ranging from offline battles like VSMode and Survival to online Ranked matches and training! For players who want to appreciate the artwork and the characters a bit more there is both a Customization Mode and a Gallery you can browse to your heart's content!
