Tales of Xilla 2
Release Date: August 19, 2014 | Bandai Namco | ESRB: T for Teen | PS3
Tales of Xillia 2 is set a year after Tales of Xillia, and revolves around Ludger Kresnik, a run-of-the-mill man who lives with his brother and cat, and Elle Marta, a young and dependable girl who Ludger meets by chance. Throughout the game the player will have to make decisions for Ludger that will cause the story to branch out in a new direction.
Tales of Xillia 2 features the return of the linking system from the original Tales of Xillia, in which players can link to any active party member in battle to team up and destroy enemies with support attacks and powerful linked artes attacks. The game also features a new Weapon Swap mechanic while in battle, meaning that players can switch between three main weapons; a sledgehammer, dual pistols and dual blades in real-time during combat.
Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition
Release Date: August 19, 2014 | Blizzard | ESRB: M for Mature | PS3, PS4, X360, Xbox 1
Diablo III picks up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both Heaven and Hell, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Take on the role of one of six powerful character classes — Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, Wizard, or the all-new Crusader — and embark on a dark journey through Acts I-V to save the world of Sanctuary from ancient and sinister forces. Players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen.
This Ultimate Evil Edition contains both Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion set, together in one definitive volume.
