Valkyrie Profile: Toga o Seoumono - New Import, In Stock

«©NCSX» Previous releases in the Valkyrie Profile series have placed gamers in the shoes of a Valkyrie. In Tri-Ace's NDS Valkyrie rendition, players take control of a warrior named Wylfred who's harboring a a reservoir of hate against the Valkyrie named Lenneth. Many years ago, Wylfred's father Thyodor was killed on the battlefield and his soul was taken by Lenneth so he could become an Einherjar. Wylfred's goal is to attain Einherjar status himself so he can settle things with Lenneth.

Valkyrie Profile: Toga o Seoumono isn't anything like its predecessors. Tri-Ace eschews side-scrolling action in favor of a tactical RPG where turn-based conflicts are fitted between interactive sequences which move the story along. Wylfred starts the adventure with his friend Ancel and they're joined later by another kindred spirit named Ailyth.

Tropic Thunder (2-Disc Unrated Director's Cut) - In Stock

From the Publisher
In the action–comedy "Tropic Thunder", Ben Stiller plays pampered action superstar Tugg Speedman, who is cast in the biggest, most expensive war movie ever produced. Speedman sets out to Southeast Asia with a "Who‘s Who" of celebrity co–stars. They include Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), an intense, three–time Oscar®–winning actor; Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), star of the popular gross–out comedy franchise "The Fatties"; multi–platinum hip–hop–star–turned–entrepreneur–turned–actor Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson); and first–timer Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel).

Soon after the production begins the actors are thrown into a real–life situation and are forced to become the fighting unit they‘re portraying, in order to find a way out of the jungle in one piece. A troupe of actors, under the impression they‘re making a Vietnam war movie, wanders dangerously in the jungle and is captured by a gang of drug lords who think the actors are narcs. This movie is a send–up of Hollywood, actors, acting, agents, directors, writers, rappers, trailers and egos.

The DVD is in stock today. The TT Blu-Ray is expected in a few days.
