This Week New Video Games Titles ( 6 July - 12 July )

With the exception of two Mature-rating games, the selection for this week of July 6 to 12 is one of pure wholesomeness. But don't think just because there won't be as much blood spilling and guns ablazin' you guys won't have the same amount of fun.

You can play detective as the classic character, Nancy Drew in The Phantom of Venice, or play God creating your own nimble empire in Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution. Code Lyoko on the PSP is also sure to give you a fill for that insatiable craving for adventure.

Still a tad too wholesome for you? Alright, alright. Have your dose of manly action with the PC release of Devil May Cry 4 on the PC, as well as...

Unreal Tournament III - Heroism takes on two faces as you engage in battle against the Necris invasion both for the defense of humanity and for the revenge of the slaughter of your clan. Midway Entertainment ups the ante in this shooter title as it displays in full glory the power of their much-raved about Unreal Engine 3. With over two dozen weapons and vehicles upgradeable, as well as multiple game modes (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, all-new Warfare mode among others), there's certainly reason for you not to enjoy this blastfest.

Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon - Wonder how it's like to lose your memory with every toll of the bell up at the clocktower? Sounds a tad too tragic, right? Now try imagining that in a whole town. Yup, that's the challenge Chocobo and Cid have to contend with as they try to retrieve everyone's memories through the dungeons that Rafaello made. Sure to make this action RPG more enjoyable and challenging are the unexpected twists and ever-changing dungeons to up that difficulty level a bit more.

Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice
-The nosy teenage detective is definitely rising up the ranks early as she's already been asked for help by no less than the Italian Police. There's somebody threatening to steal Venice's priceless artifacts and she better uncover the identity of this wanna-be looter ASAP or else risk losing the heritage of Venice.

Being in a foreign land means doing things their way so Nancy must be adaptive enough to learn the language, familiarize herself with navigation (oh, the romantic gondolas!) and keeping that keen detective eye on the look out for the thief before he or she slips past Nancy's grasps.
