Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is a survival horror video game. It is the fifth main title in the Fatal Frame video game series. Like in previous games in the Fatal Frame (Zero) series, the player must defeat hostile ghosts by taking photographs of them. The Wii U GamePad is used like a real camera, and extra damage can be dealt to enemies by rotating the controller before taking a shot. The game takes place in a large open environment with mountains, lakes, and graveyards. The mountain setting is constantly rainy and has many flowing water features, and sopping-wet ghosts haunt the area. The game features a guest appearance of the female ninja Ayane as a bonus playable character in her own side-mission, where she has been requested to find a missing girl named Tsumugi Katashina. Unlike the protagonists of the game, Ayane can not defeat ghosts and her strategy relies on evasion.

Fire Emblem Fates - Special Edition was a limited time bundle containing both base stories, Birthright and Conquest, and gave access to DLC for the 3rd story, Revelation, when it became available.
The games were otherwise sold separately though you could get the second story path digitally at a discount.
You need to be have completed chapter 6 in the either game to access the other stories, and the DLCs, path.

Conquest is the hardest of the 3 paths having no ability to grind experience from maps, tougher mission objectives, and giving less money and experience for those missions. Birthright, the easiest path, has the ability to use scouting missions to grind experience and money and simpler mission objectives that give greater amounts of experience and money. Revelation is in the middle as the scouting missions are available but the mission objectives are similar to Conquest's. This is ignoring the 3 difficulty settings in-game.

"Two kingdoms at war – the peace-loving Hoshido and the glory-seeking Nohr – It’s up to the player to decide which side to take. As the prince/princess of Hoshido, who was raised by Nohr royal family, you will be torn between two families you love. Whichever path you take, you will face different types of challenges."

Expanding on the mind-bending puzzle challenges previously found only on Nintendo 3DS, this Wii U title offers a variety of challenges that can only be solved by manipulating a wall of 3D obstacles. Pushmo World finds players pushing, pulling and climbing blocks to solve a collection of more than 250 new puzzles. What separates Pushmo World from the other games in the series, besides the crisp and colorful HD graphics and original puzzles, is the addition of World Pushmo Fair, an in-game hub that gives players an easy way to share and download new puzzles.

In Pushmo World, players are tasked with solving three-dimensional block-based puzzles by moving blocks to climb to the top of structures. As the game progresses, the puzzles get larger and more complex, with some massive, screen-filling creations resembling familiar objects, animals and even classic Nintendo characters. Pushmo World introduces a collection of training levels that players can use to hone their puzzle-climbing skills. The game also features a time-rewind option that lets players undo mistakes. This forgiving feature rewards players for being smart thinkers, rather than forcing them to restart a complex puzzle for making a hasty move. Being stumped won’t stop the fun: If players are stuck on a particularly tough puzzle, they can skip ahead to the next one. In addition to the numerous puzzles included in the game, Pushmo World lets players create their own puzzles using a selection of tools in Pushmo Studio and share them with friends and others around the world.

Transformations include a submarine, rocket and tank. In underwater levels, Kirby dons a swim mask. If his power level gets too low, a clay bandage appears on his head.
