“Warhammer: Chaosbane”

It is a hack-and-slash ARPG set in the “Warhammer Fantasy” universe that takes queues from other popular games in the genre like “Diablo” and “Path of Exile.” “Warhammer: Chaosbane” plunges players deep into a grim fantasy setting as one of four characters who must face the endless hordes of Chaos and save the Empire of Man from utter collapse.

“Mulaka”

“Mulaka” is an action-adventure game made by indie developer Lienzo. The game explores the rich mythos of northern Mexico as players try to fight against a growing corruption that threatens to consume the land. “Mulaka” features puzzle solving, platforming and fast hand-to-hand combat as well as a story based on the real Tarahumara group of indigenous people who are renowned for their superhuman running speed.

“Zone of The Enders HD Collection”

This version of the classic “Zone of The Enders” games features revamped graphics that better fit the technology of the Xbox 360, as well as reworked art and improved audio. This third-person action game was originally produced by Hideo Kojima back when he was still with Konami, and it tells the story of a young boy-turned-mech pilot who gets tangled in a web of political turmoil and intrigue.

“Samurai Shodown II”

This retro fighting game features 15 different fighters and an intuitive combat system that can easily keep players on their toes. “Samurai Shodown II” was one of the most popular arcade games of its time and now players can fight at home to their hearts’ content come September.
