Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is a direct sequel to Assassin’s Creed 2, placing you once again in the bustling – and dangerous – streets of Renaissance Italy. More importantly, AC:B offers a full-fledged multiplayer mode that pits assassin against assassin in a game of speed and stealth.
The God of War series continues to be the high-water mark for which all other action games compare themselves, and Ghost of Sparta is no exception. All of the usual blood-n-guts and gods-n-goddess return, but this time Kratos sets out to explore the lost city of Atlantis only to find more than he bargained for within the sunken city.
Following up on the exceptional Fallout 3, New Vegas represents another chapter of the Fallout universe populated by Vault dwellers, irradiated mutants, 50s-era gadgetry, and more roaches than you could shake a baseball bat at (note: shaking a baseball bat at roaches composes nearly 50% of New Vegas’ game play).
If you know someone who plays WoW, you will probably be buying them this come December, unless they’ve already pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition for themselves. Cataclysm includes a slew of upgrades including an increased level cap, new playable characters, new dungeons to explore – more of everything that continues to make WoW the most addictive game on the planet.
A surprisingly dark and, indeed, epic tale of betrayal and jealousy set in the Disney universe. Epic Mickey stars Mickey Mouse as he battles his way through a rapidly decaying wasteland of a world he helped destroy while regaining the trust of his half-brother Oswald. The most surprising, and welcome, release this holiday season.
