12/02/2011 - Xewnoblade Chronicles coming to the North America
XENOBLADE CHRONICLES COMING TO NINTENDO'S WII CONSOLE IN SPRING

Dec. 2, 2011 - It's man vs. machine in a new game coming to Nintendo's Wii™ console in spring. Xenoblade Chronicles™ asks players to use the Monado blade to take on a seemingly endless series of invading Mechon robots in a sweeping role-playing adventure.

The main character is Shulk, a weapons researcher who must confront the Mechon by wielding the ancient Monado blade. It's the only weapon that has any effect against the Mechon, and it also enables Shulk to see the future.

Players can customize their characters with a variety of weapons and armor choices, as well as headgear, boots and gloves. As in many role-playing games, players can then gain experience and upgrade their characters. Players can watch their enemies, learn their tactics and unleash real-time counterattacks.

The vast open world of Xenoblade Chronicles is ripe for exploration. Players can avert their focus from the main story and venture out looking for other challenges and side quests. Hidden areas and unique monsters are scattered throughout the game's massive world, which players can explore freely.

Xenoblade Chronicles has already launched in Japan and Europe, and has received unanimously positive reviews, including several perfect scores.

Xenoblade Chronicles will be available exclusively through U.S. GameStop retail locations,
http://www.gamestop.com and http://www.nintendo.com at a suggested retail price of $49.99 in the United States. Additional information about the game will be announced in the future. For more information, visit http://xenobladechronicles.nintendo.com.

Go Ahead Punk! Make My Day!

Texas based independent developer, Game Tongue Software, has finally released to the App Store their high anticipated Western-Themed FPS, Legendary Outlaw! Compatible with the Apple iPhone®, Apple iPod touch®, and also the Apple iPad®, you finally have the perfect opportunity to prove to yourself, and others, that you are gunslinger material!

Legendary Outlaw is an impressive adrenaline pumping FPS in which you play the role of an outlaw willing to do everything and anything to achieve fame and fortune. As Colt Kaufman, you are destined to become the ultimate Legendary Outlaw, but only if you successfully go guns-blazing and use the environments to lure and assassinate enemies by stealth - without being seen or heard!

Featuring incredibly intuitive controls, amazing 3D visuals and environments, Legendary Outlaw is packed with features: featuring 12 highly detailed environments, dual-weapon ability, ninja-like gameplay, stealth assassinations, revolvers, shotguns, double-barreled shotguns, dynamite, Molotov cocktails, and even gatling guns, this game is ideal to fans of the genre! You’ve talked the talk, now walk the walk. Only the most hardcore gunslingers will survive!

Legendary Outlaw is available on the App Store from HERE
