From the creators behind Capcom’s critically acclaimed action games Resident Evil™ 4 and Devil May Cry™ 4, Dragon’s Dogma draws upon this pedigree to deliver deep, fulfilling combat in an epic adventure. Players take on the role of the Arisen, a humble peasant chosen for something greater. They can fully customize this main character’s appearance through a vast set of options which has an effect on gameplay in an intuitive way. Many factors including the character’s build, the weight of their weapon and armor, all play roles in how they fight their battles. Players initially choose from three basic classes, the Fighter, Strider, or Mage, each with their own unique abilities and fighting styles. Over the course of their journey, players are able to advance from these basic vocations to hybrid or prestige classes for a total of nine classes.
The Kickbeat soundtrack hits hard; it’s comprised of licensed tracks from a diverse lineup of artists ranging from well-known bands such as Pendulum and Marilyn Manson, to indie pioneers Celldweller and Blue Stahli, to hidden talents like electronic music producer Voicians and Taiwanese rapper Shen Yi.“Kickbeat is a showcase example of passion, risk and creativity.

The introduction of dynamic water within the game introduces new and unique hazards to players. Dynamic water features in an array of new weapons and utilities and it can also appear already on the landscape in matches. For example, dynamic water could appear as a deposit within some landscape that, once destroyed, releases the flowing torrent of destruction. Unsuspecting worms are swept across the landscape and those unfortunate enough to end the turn submerged take damage as they slowly drown in a watery grave.

“Iron Front – Liberation 1944” is based on the engine of ARMA II Operation Arrowhead by Bohemia Interactive. The story takes place in southern Poland during the Soviet Offensive in the summer of 1944. The player takes on the role of a Russian or German infantryman, using teamwork, tactical skill and authentic war machines to battle for victory. The German campaign focuses on slowing the advance of the Soviet troops, while the Soviet campaign is all about breaking through the enemy’s resistance. However, the player does not have to do all this on foot: using their computers, tacticians control tanks, including the famous German battle tank Panzerkampfwagen VI or “Königstiger” and the Russian Stalin tank JS2, or fighter planes such as the Focke Wulf 190 and dive bombers like the Stuka or the Petlyakov PE-2.
