Class of Heroes 2 (PSV/PSP)

Class of Heroes 2 is a take on dungeon crawler games, but all of the party members are drawn from a pool of newly enrolled students at a sword and sorcery school. The title features hours of gameplay and good replay value. This enhanced portable version is the first time the game has been fully translated and boasts gameplay tweaks over the original Japanese release.

Key Features:

  • 18 classes
  • 125+ dungeon maps
  • 96 quests
  • 10 races
  • Hundreds of equipment and skill combinations for beefing up soon-to-be hero students

The game features 18 classes, including: Fighter, Idol, Monk, Ninja, Puppeteer, Ranger, Sorcerer, Swordsman, and more — including a mystery class. Once a team is created, quests are offered and the party can choose an adventure path, unlocking more areas as it goes. Monster parties can be more than one level deep, leading to encounters of 12+ monsters at a time. In those instances, managing a party's skills can be the difference between victory and death. Class of Heroes 2 also features nail-biting encounters with bosses.

Class of Heroes 2 is rated "T" for "Teen" by the ESRB and is available for download on PlayStation Network for $24.99.

Crysis 3: The Lost Island Multiplayer DLC (PS3/X360/PC)

The hunt for rebel forces moves to the West Pacific in the The Lost Island multiplayer DLC pack, which showcases four new maps, two new multiplayer modes (Frenzy and Possession), and new weapons. Traces of an alien presence have been discovered on an island in the Philippines 200 miles from Ling Shan. Rebel forces have been dispatched to destroy this extraterrestrial entity before others can obtain it.

The Lost Island Multiplayer DLC is available on Xbox Live Arcade for 1,200 Microsoft points ($15) and PlayStation Network and PC for $14.99.

Eve Online: Odyssey (PC)

Odyssey is the 19th free expansion for EVE Online. It adds changes to scanning, hidden sites, and discovery, and it also introduces the Sensor Overlay, which helps players uncover hidden riches and relics. The expansion also features enhanced spaceship metrics for multiple ship classes and redistributes resource landscape, exploration sites, and NPC loot. These changes are meant to shake up EVE's player economy and endanger diplomatic ties. Odyssey also rolls out new Navy Battlecruisers. Player-owned starbases are also updated, as the expansion introduces fixes, interface innovations, and features such as radial menus and probe formations.

Limbo (PSV)

The black-and-white puzzle-platforming adventure, Limbo, is available for download on Steam for $9.99. The PC edition is the only version of the game that runs at a full 60fps.

Limbo challenges players with traversing dark forests, trap-filled underground complexes, and stormy rooftops brought to life with hand-drawn visuals. They must be quick, clever and fearless if they want to survive their journey and unravel the mysteries at Limbo's sinister heart.

Limbo is rated "T" for "Teen" by the ESRB and is available for download on PlayStation Network for $14.99. The game supports cross-buy, so with one purchase, players get a license for both Playstation Vita and PlayStation 3.

Remember Me (PS3/X360/PC)

Remember Me transports gamers to 2084 and the city of Neo-Paris. Thanks to the Sensen device, citizens can digitize their memories and share, trade or sell them. The citizens are blissfully ignorant of how their overuse of technology is eroding their identity. The Errorists see the threat and, with the help of protagonist Nilin, try to bring down the corporation that owns the Sensen technology.

During Nilin's journey, players experience a mix of combat, boss fights and platforming alongside exploration, puzzles and memory remix sections. Delve into a combat system that allows for 1000s of different combos. The interface also allows players to adapt combos during the game to tackle different situations.

In the memory remix sections, players take control of another's memory. Explore the memory, rewind and fast forward to search for memory glitches that can be rearranged to create a new outcome. Of course, changing memories come with consequences ....

Remember Me is rated "M" for "Mature" by the ESRB and is available at an MSRP of $59.99 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and $49.99 for PC digital download.
