Mercenaries 2: World in Flames is an explosive open-world action game set in a massive, highly reactive, war-torn world. When a power-hungry tyrant messes with Venezuela's oil supply he sparks an invasion that turns the country into a war zone. But for you, international crisis is all upside: You are a mercenary, and you profit from chaos. You are not a soldier. You don't have to play by anyone's rules. You have your own code: you will fulfill the terms of the contract, no matter what. If you see it, you can buy it, steal it, or blow the living crap out of it. Play your own way, or play with the help of a friend in the new co-op multiplayer mode. And remember rule #1 for mercenaries: EVERYBODY PAYS.

Made Fresh Daily All Season Long.
NBA LIVE is back, rewriting the book on authenticity and connectivity while staying accessible enough for new users. At the heart of the new LIVE experience is Dynamic DNA, emulating - with absolute precision - an NBA player in every sense of the word. LIVE has gone international too, adding an expanded FIBA World Championship; 24 FIBA teams and rosters hailing from the US, France, Spain and beyond playing on FIBA regulation courts.
Enhanced controls make every drive, shot and dunk more authentic, with added Pick and Roll Control that allows direct handling of both the ball handler and the screener. Signature Playcalling now paints the court with routes for improved visibility, and is paired with authentic plays from real player data, while the all-new NBA Academy provides a place to train skills between those plays.
From player tendencies to deeper leagues to tighter online integration, NBA LIVE 09 is closer than ever to center court.
- Dynamic DNA - The brain behind the game is powered by the premier analytics provider using NBA data for over 20 NBA teams, which evaluates Player DNA that breaks down how a player scores, Team DNA that rates how the players on the floor play as a unit, and Tendencies that refer to the percentage a player drives left, right or shoots from each spot on the floor.
- NBA LIVE 365- Uses the statistical data of Dynamic DNA and brings it to life. Just like the real NBA game, players get injured, free agents sign late, great players go cold and no-names break through, while Player DNA Progression provides at-a-glance progress and changes to any player's DNA after an NBA LIVE 365 update.
- Enhanced Dynasty Mode - Need that Free Agent to push your team over the hump? Try the new Dynasty Negotiation Mini game and get him signed. Don’t feel like managing your entire staff? Delegate tasks to the CPU while you focus on winning championships.
- New Be A Pro Mode - Featuring a dynamic new way to experience the game, play out an entire career by taking on the role of your favorite NBA player. Master a position and develop your skills to ultimately become a basketball legend.
- Hot Spots v2.0 - Your player’s indicator will start to glow red or blue when they’re in a spot on the court where they shoot out the lights or toss up bricks.
