Dead Rising is an action horror game that follows Frank West, a freelance photojournalist in pursuit of the story of a lifetime. What he finds is a small suburban town completely overrun by zombies. He seeks refuge in the local shopping mall, but soon learns it is far from the safe haven he had thought. Dead Rising takes place over 72 hours, during which Frank must unravel the mystery behind the catastrophe and survive the swarm of enemies. Hundreds of objects can be used as weapons to fend off the hordes of zombies - everything from golf clubs and baseball bats to cash registers and stuffed animals.
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is a sci-fi third-person action shooter that offers both a single player and multiplayer experience. The adventure takes place on the frozen alien planet E.D.N. III. To survive, gamers will battle snow pirates, gigantic creatures known as Akrid and harvest the precious thermal energy found inside them. To do this they’ll utilize hi-tech weaponry and Vital Suits (VS ) – gigantic mechs used to traverse the frozen planet they’re on. In Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition, players get the same single player experience found in the original game, with the addition of three new modes. In Score Attack, all enemies have points assigned to them and the score awarded will change depending on how they are defeated, with skilled marksmen being rewarded. Trial Battle Mode pits players against all of the game’s bosses, one after another. Players of both Score Attack and Trial Battle modes will be able to compare their skills via the online ranking system. Finally, Limit Mode which lets players take on Lost Planet’s environments and enemies with over-the-top, super-charged weapons and a powered-up grappling hook. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition was one of the first games to allow cross-platform connectivity from Xbox LIVE to Games for Windows – LIVE, allowing console and Windows-based PC users to battle it out online.
Devil May Cry 4 allows players to unleash Nero's (the new protagonist of the series) attacks and non-stop combos using a new gameplay mechanic, his powerful “Devil Bringer” arm. Fans of Dante (the series' previous lead) won’t be disappointed as he too will be playable during the course of the game.
