CrossFire[edit]

CrossFire is an online first-person-shooter, which features two International Mercenary Forces locked together in an epic global conflict. Players assume the role of either a Black List terrorist or Global Risk anti-terrorist, joining an online team that must work together to complete objective-based scenarios. There are ten online modes: Team Death Match, Escape Mode, Elimination Mode, Search and Destroy, Ghost Mode, Free-For-All, Mutation Mode, Hero Mode, Hero Mode X and Zombie Mode. Based on their performance in-game, players will receive experience points and be promoted through various military ranks, based on the United States Army's ranking system. Players will also have the ability to customize their character's equipment and appearance through CrossFire's in-game item shop. CrossFire is free to download and playable online.

CrossFire was developed by the South Korean game developer SmileGate in 2007, using Lithtech's Jupiter EX engine. CrossFire is licensed to the multimedia publisher, Neowiz, and is distributed further to regional publishers.

Lost Saga is a free-to-play 3D fighting game. On December 8, 2013 WeMade USA shut down Lost Saga's service for Canadian and American users. On December 18, 2013 Z8Games began hosting Lost Saga for Canadian and American users. On November 20, 2014, Lost Saga was also released on Steam for Canadian and American users.

Lost Saga features characters from science fiction, culture, and history, and offers players the ability to switch characters on the fly to improve gameplay, combinations and the overall combat experience.

Lost Saga features many modes, including: Prisoner, Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Powerstone (a turf war mode), Crown Control (A King of the Hill mode), Champion Mode (a more traditional 2D fighting mode), and even a Soccer mode. Lost Saga uses a military ranking system, with you starting as a Cadet, and you work your way through the ranks.
