Blood Bowl 2 ($12.50)

TOUCHDOWN! Blood Bowl 2 smashes Warhammer and American football together, in an explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy, humour and brutality, adapted from Games Workshop’s famous boardgame. Blood Bowl 2’s new graphics engine and high-flying realization faithfully portray the fury and intensity of classic Blood Bowl matches. Lead the famous star team Reikland Reavers back to glory, in a new solo story campaign supported by the hilarious commentators Jim & Bob. Each match is unique, with unexpected events constantly renewing the experience! The single and multiplayer modes are richer than ever. In the online persistent mode against players (or offline against the AI), create and manage your own teams comprised of eight races from the Warhammer world – Humans, Orcs, Dwarfs, Skaven, High Elves, Dark Elves, Chaos, and the Bretonnian newcomers – gaining XP and unlocking new skills. Online, organize entirely customizable championships and trade your players to build your dream-team!

Never Alone Arctic Collection ($3.80)

Experience the epic journey of Nuna and Fox as they search for the source of an eternal blizzard that threatens the survival of everything they have ever known. Never Alone is an atmospheric puzzle platformer developed in collaboration with the Iñupiat, an Alaska Native people, drawn from a traditional story that has been shared across the generations. Guide both characters in single-player mode or play cooperatively with a friend or family member as you trek through frozen tundra, leap across treacherous ice floes, swim through underwater ice caverns, and face numerous enemies both strange and familiar in the journey to save the girl’s village. Foxtales features three all new levels full of environments to explore, puzzles to solve and enemies to face. Travel across open seas, swim through the ruins of a sunken village and paddle up the Noatak River on a mission to rescue a new friend. The Never Alone Arctic Combo Pack includes both Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) and the Foxtales DLC.

Xbox 360 Deals:

Lost Planet 3 ($4.99)

With numerous multiplayer modes and a highly engrossing cinematic single player experience, Lost Planet 3 delves deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique environment of E.D.N. III.

Remember Me ($5.99)

Neo-Paris. 2084. Personal memories can now be digitised, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people. Remember Me™ is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.

Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition ($11.99)

Street Fighter IV took the world by storm and now it’s back, and more Super than ever with Super Street Fighter IV! Ten new fighters, nostalgic Bonus Stages, new spectator features and the awesome Replay Channel will draw you in for one more brutal fight!
