Ship Simulator Extremes (PC)

The most realistic simulator to ever set sail on the high seas features stunning visuals, accurate vessel behavior, famous locations and ports all over the world and missions based on actual events.

Created by the developer VSTEP, Ship Simulator Extremes offers exciting missions as you pilot an impressive array of vessels, and live the story of real ship captains. Do you have the calm nerves of a real ship captain, even in the most demanding conditions?

“We are confident the latest installment of the Ship Simulator series will more than please the sim community and open up the genre to a new set of gamers,” said Mattias Lilja, Executive Producer at Paradox Interactive. “The VSTEP team went above and beyond with this project, and we couldn’t be happier with the end result.”

Ship Simulator Extremes is available today for digital download on all leading digital distribution platforms, in European retail stores and through the Paradox webshop.

Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns (Wii)

Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns offers players two classic arcade light gun shooters for one great value. Featuring immersive pick up and play action that stays true to the original arcade games, up to two players can control Gunblade helicopter gunships and work cooperatively to destroy an android terrorist invasion in the airspace above some of the United States most well-known locations.  Players begin by combating android invaders in New York City and from there, they take their gunships to battle new forces of enemies in Los Angeles and other familiar West Coast locales such as Alcatraz, Yosemite and Las Vegas. There’s no need to reload, as players will be equipped with infinite ammo, just like in the arcade;  just pull the trigger and blast away at android terrorist enemies and exploding objects, and watch as  the environments become strategically destroyed as well. The game contains new features such as the Chain Combo System which enables even higher scores, and the Unlockable Weapon Toggle which uses game ranking to unlock hidden extras such as wide shot, rapid fire and heavy shot.

Gunblade NY and LA Machineguns is compatible with the Wii Zapper and is packed with a host of added Wii features like online leader boards for worldwide ranking and Wii Remote™ vibration to complete the experience. The game is available now for $29.99.
