There were a number of new releases from December 10th that bring achievements.

LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII can be downloaded from here at 10% off until 10AM PT on December 17th.

Lightning Returns is the concluding chapter of the Final Fantasy XIII saga and series heroine Lightning's final battle. The grand finale of the trilogy brings a world reborn as well as free character customization and stunning action based battles.

The world is sinking into a sea of chaos, and in thirteen days, nothing will remain.
Though the planet is doomed, there is still hope for those who call it home.
After centuries in crystal stasis, a hero has awoken—a legendary warrior on a god-given mission to save the souls of mankind. Her name: Lightning.
Blessed with incredible strength and an arsenal of new weapons, she has everything she needs for the coming battle. Everything except time. And now she must make an impossible choice...
MechWarrior Online can be downloaded from here for FREE.

MechWarrior Online™ is a tactical, 'Mech-based online shooter set in the rich BattleTech Universe. The battlefields of the 31st century are dominated by immense and powerful mechanized units known as BattleMechs. Piloting these war machines are the most elite soldiers that the galaxy has ever known. To most, they are known simply as MechWarriors.

You will assume the role of an elite MechWarrior, fighting for supremacy over the galaxy against other players.

Quick Play is where you'll find fast action, fielding a single 'Mech in team-based game modes and maps. Unlike Faction Play, Quick Play matches do not influence the layout of Inner Sphere territories; these battles are fought purely for rewards and glory.

In Faction Play you will field 4 ‘Mechs per match, lending your skills and allegiance to the Faction of your choosing in prolonged team-based engagements, conquering and defending planets in their name to earn rewards and expand your Faction's territory across the Inner Sphere.
Pale Echoes can be downloaded from here at 20% off until 10AM PT on December 17th.

The end of the world has come and gone, leaving only phantoms where once there was life. Now Schorl, the last surviving human, and Spinel, the last of the magical saerii, search through the memories of a bygone era, hoping to find a future.

Pale Echoes is an RPG where exploration, collection, and critical thinking are key. Travel between the desolate real world and the vibrant world of memories, reliving the events of the past and collecting powerful human memories, each with their own unique skills.

Battle against and purify echoes, powerful phantoms left behind by the deceased, using a unique battle system where every lost memory you collect is a different character to summon to your aid. Beware, however, as each memory can only act once, and victory must be attained before your last memory has been used up.
Raiden Legacy can be downloaded from here at 25% off until 10AM PT on December 17th.

RAIDEN LEGACY is a four-title compilation of the mega-popular RAIDEN arcade series including RAIDEN, RAIDEN FIGHTERS, RAIDEN FIGHTERS 2 & RAIDEN FIGHTERS JET.

The first episode takes place in 2090 while a massive Alien invasion threatens the entire Earth. To repel the onslaught of those bad guys known as Cranassians, the World Alliance Military has developed a daring counter-attack with a powerful new weapon: the Raiden Supersonic Attack Fighter. Be a brave pilot and use Raiden’s powerful weaponry to fight against waves of enemy ships and save the human race!

Each title includes three different modes: “Arcade Mode” (just like the original); “Mission Mode”, which allows you to play any unlocked stage; and “Training Mode”, which, true to its name, allows you to excel at your favorite stages and practice the most difficult ones!
Originally developed by Seibu Kaihatsu, each of these classic scrolling arcade shooters have been enhanced with brand-new features:

• 1 - 2 simultaneous players (local + online)
• 15+ different ships, each with their own characteristics, stats, weapons, and powerups!
• Remastered HD soundtrack for Raiden Fighters 1 & 2 and Raiden Fighters Jet
• Full gamepad support

Tetris Ultimate can be downloaded from here.

In this fast-paced game of skills, you can take on the puzzle game solo, battle a friend, partner up with friends, or make battle teams. Up to four players can get in on the action.

• Landslide – Try to clear lines while random Minos are dumped on your screen every 10 turns.
