Devil May Cry HD Collection (PS3/X360)

Devil May Cry HD Collection brings the first three original Devil May Cry titles: Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition together in one high-definition package.

Devil May Cry HD Collection features award-winning gameplay and style, with the addition of HD graphics, support for Trophies and Achievements and a bonus content vault that provides the player with exclusive artwork.

Debuting in 2001, Devil May Cry captured gamers' hearts through its stylish, over-the-top action and bad boy antihero Dante. Son to a human mother and a devil father named Sparda, the half-demon Dante uses his abilities and powers to fight a one-man war against the forces of darkness and save humanity.

Devil May Cry 2 centers on Dante and his new devilishly agile partner Lucia in their fight to defeat a horde of evil led by a man hell-bent on achieving supreme power. Devil May Cry 2 released in 2003 and was praised for its variety of environments, Lucia as an additional playable character and updated control scheme.

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition is the definitive edition of Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening. Released in 2006, it features enhancements, including the opportunity to play as Dante's twin brother, Vergil, and the addition of Bloody Palace Mode and Turbo Mode.

Devil May Cry HD Collection is rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB and is available for an MSRP of $39.99.

Forza Motorsport 4: April Alpinestars Car Pack DLC (X360)

The April Alpinestars Car Pack DLC adds new cars for Forza players to collect, customize and drive. The DLC features 10 rides:

  • 2011 Aston Martin #009 Aston Martin Racing AMR One – Engineered to take advantage of the FIA's emergency efficiency-focused regulations, the Aston Martin AMR One employs an in-line, 2-liter, 6-cylinder turbo that produces upwards of 540 hp.
  • 1995 BMW M5 – BMW's M5 line has always represented a full-bodied combination of power and luxury. The quick-revving, 3.8 liter, 24-valve straight-6 engine delivers north of 300 hp, and the 6-speed transmission was one of the few available in the mid-1990s.
  • 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible - Named after the sophisticated French resort town patronized by the likes of Napoleon and Queen Victoria, the Biarritz convertible defined elegance and grace in the late automotive world of the 1950s.
  • 2012 Jaguar XKR-S – The XKR-S is Jaguar's first full production car to be a member of the elite 300 kmh (186 mph) club. It's a strong road performer with a powerful engine and adaptive damping and stability control to keep the car stuck to the road.
  • 2011 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S – The Ferrari-built engine provides a concert of throaty rumblings whose volume and tone can be controlled via a valve-controlled exhaust. The Sport GT S is adept in the corners and no slouch on the straightaways, too.
  • 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE – The GSL-SE introduced the legendary 13B engine, the largest, most powerful RX-7 engine ever developed at the time. Combine that with a light frame and perfect weight distribution, and you've got a serious performer.
  • 1972 Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.3 – The 300 SEL 6.3 features a big single overhead cam, pushing the car from 0-60 in just 6.5 seconds and making it the fastest sedan in the world at the time.
  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz #35 Black Falcon SLS AMG GT3 – No stranger to excellent track performance. The SLS's distinctive doors are a nod to classic Mercedes style, and the car's deep carbon fiber splitter and low roofline keep it firmly in the present.
  • 2012 Scion tC - Functional, sporty, safe, and well-equipped sum up the 2012 Scion tC. For 2012, the body received a much more chiseled look and, as with all Scion's, the list of dealer options is very long.
  • 1997 Volvo 850 R – While the terms "sports" and "wagon" rarely come together, they fit nicely when describing the 850 R. It sports a turbo-powered 5-cylinder engine that tops out north of 150 mph. You might not need all that power on your trip to the local hardware store, but in Forza 4, it serves you well.

Forza 4 is rated "E" For Everyone by the ESRB. The The April Alpinestars Car Pack is available for 560 Microsoft points ($7).
