Princess Amelie has the same problems she faced last year – she's stranded in an entirely different world, seeking out the hero who previously saved her and loyally served her father. With the release of King's Bounty: Crossworlds, orcs are swarming through that same alternate world, and while Amelie has more tools with which to find her father's savior, she also confronts more challenges and an entirely different race of soldiers that can be either powerful allies or deadly foes.

I'm a dismal gardener. I'm even less interested in gardening and farming simulations than I am in actually tilling the soil. But when that gardening is point-and-click, and purely in the interest of fending off waves of pole-vaulting, Zomboni-driving undead, there's nothing I'd rather be doing than sowing a few sunflowers.

The "Sigma" model prototype Big Daddy has been reactivated to perform a critical task. He must back up the operating system of Rapture's computer system and transport the workings of this phenomenal machine safely to the surface world. In doing so, Sigma is trapped at the fulcrum of the power struggle between Charles Milton Porter and Reed Wahl, the co-creators of "The Thinker" – Rapture's computer system. Porter fell from grace and remains obsessed with his long-dead wife. Wahl is obsessed with probabilities and Hari Seldon-style mathematical predictions of the future. Will Sigma reach the computing core, or fall victim to the decaying infrastructure of Rapture and maniacal splicers.

Motocross Star Chuck Green is desperate to escape a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas with his ailing daughter. Only a regular dose of Zombrex will keep Chuck's daughter healthy, and just short of the quarantine perimeter, his Zombrex (and truck) is stolen. Chuck has 12 hours to find Zombrex in a town filled with the shambling dead. Fortunately, just about everything can be used to kill zombies, and searching for Zombrex is more fun when you strap chainsaws to both ends of a kayak paddle.
