As Spring rolls around, Sega collects 31 pieces of music from the new Ryu Ga Gotoku Kenzan! game on a single CD for easy listening.

Six months have passed since the events on the planet Aether. The Galactic Federation's network computers, Aurora Units, are suddenly and completely corrupted with something like a virus, and only quick action saves the entire network from going down. The Federation believes Space Pirates may be behind the problem and, beginning with Samus, starts to contact bounty hunters.
» Truly feel what it is to be the bounty hunter behind the visor.
» Players become Samus with the Wii controls. By moving around with the Nunchuk and aiming Samus' gun with the Wii Remote, players do more than look through the eyes of Samus - they experience a quantum leap in first-person control. Fire on the run, grapple enemies and yank off their shields or manipulate machinery with movements of the Nunchuk and Wii Remote - it all adds up to a level of immersion only possible on Wii, and the best first-person controls on any platform, period.
Similar to previous games in the Nobunaga no Yabou series, players take control of a territory and use resource management, military savvy, and interpersonal skills to maintain an overlord's grip on the kingdom. To secure secret information, ninjas may be sent out to scout enemy strongholds while a core group of loyal generals must be maintained to control the troops. The game starts off slowly at first as buildings are constructed, alliances are made, and resources are marshaled. When the Western powers make their move, he who barters for their guns first gains an upper hand over all neighboring powers...
Five sections in the software help users categorize and create a database for their clothes, shoes, and accessories as follows:
» Entry / Take photographs of your clothes and store them by season, category, brand, color, type, and sleeve if applicable.

The aim of the board game behooves players to roll the die and ramble around a map in order to procure more land, capital, and shares of stock than the competition. As play boards are conquered, gamers graduate to new stages where more challenges and wrinkles await. The default single-player game is Tournament Mode where players select an available character from DQ or FF, a stage to play upon, and then spin a slot machine to determine who rolls the die and moves first, second, third, and fourth. Once the game starts, four heroes spin the dice and move around in hop-step fashion. In addition to dice action, there's also the ability to check the asset levels of everyone in the game, purchase property, enhance the value of a property, buy stock, etc. When competitors land on properties owned by the player, they'll have to pay a levy before moving along with a lighter pocket.
