However sadly this week don't have loads coming to the store this week (which after Christmas and the Festive Sale might be a slight relief for your wallets) but what we do have I think will put a smile on your faces.
First off we have All Zombies Must Die, a must have for all you twin-stick shooter, zombie mayhem fans. We also have the PSone classic Wild Arms available from today and the Batman Arkham City - Challenge Map Pack to further test your cap crusading skills.
And just to finish off, I don't usually highlight avatars but the Warlords avatars we have coming to the store today I think look really cool, so check them out.
