Resident Evil 2 Remake (PS3)
A remake of the second part of the famous survival-horror franchise Resident Evil, which debuted on the PlayStation console in 1998 and was later ported to other consoles and PC / Windows. Resident Evil 2 Remake was developed by the Capcom’s leading team, R&D Division 1, for the latest gaming platforms. The game is based on the original plot with slightly modified mechanics. The action takes place a few months after the events of the game’s first part, when after a moment of calmness, a deadly zombie epidemic once again plagues Raccoon City. The player follows the story of a rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and a young girl – Claire Redfield – who arrived in the city in search of her brother. Early into the story, the two protagonists are separated and from there on the action is seen from two different points of view, and the characters’ stories develop slightly differently.
Forgotten Memories (PS3)

The game combines elements from the classic and modern survival horror games. We will use a wide range of weapons to face our enemies, but we will also have to hide or simply run to survive. Key to achieving that lies in cooperation with our partner. We will also have to face powerful bosses and solve some puzzles from time to time.

Titan Invasion (PS3)
Arcade 26 November 2017
A compilation of two games developed by an independent British studio, Puppy Games, now re-released on PlayStation consoles. The package contains Titan Attacks! and Revenge of the Titans – two titles previously released on PC in 2011 and 2012 respectively. The first game is a two-dimensional retro shooter, heavily inspired by the classic Space Invaders. We assume the role of a commander of the last tank on Earth, and our objective is to save the planet from invading hordes of aliens. Revenge of the Titans is a classic tower defense title – the player builds various defensive structures which are to repel continuous waves of attacking enemies. Both games return with a reworked interface, and are now running in 60 frames per second. As could be expected, the controls have been remapped to fit a console gamepad (or PS Vita buttons).
Shovel Knight: King of Cards (PS3)
The last expansion to a well-received game titled Shovel Knight. Both the add-on and the base game have been developed by Yacht Club Games. The main protagonist of the expansion is the titular King of Cards, who is one of the bosses a player has to fight as the Shovel Knight in the base game. The main protagonist has to prove his rights to the crown by defeating three usurpers from the neighboring lands. Similarly to the base game, Shovel Knight: King of Cards is a 2D platform game with RPG elements. The new hero fights and moves in a different manner than the previous protagonists - he mounts a short charge, which stuns the enemies and destroys some of the obstacles on the map. He also has a special ability - he can perform a pirouette on enemies' heads multiple times. As one progresses through the story, he acquires more powerful weapons, armor, and new companions. An interesting element of the game is the minigame, in which one can play cards with NPCs. The gameplay revolves around the story campaign, which is well complemented by special challenges, in which one can test his skills in platform puzzles as well as combat.
