Monday Check-In: Istanbul Not Constantinople

For this week's Monday Check-In, we have DLC, a gamer forecast, Thanksgiving activities, and more.

This Week

GameSpot Gaming Forecast
With so many interesting titles coming out this week, our GameSpot forecast for SW and GGD shows that there is a high likelihood of quality followed by amazing user reviews and possible blogs on midnight release party experiences.

What's Happening

Ace Combat DLC
Enjoying Ace Combat Assault Horizon? Well, you're in luck! Be sure to check back on Wednesday for news about how you can get an in-game item for Ace Combat Assault Horizon!

Giving Thanks
Thanksgiving is next week, and you know that means it's time for stuffing yourself silly, watching/playing football, and of course eating PIE! GameSpot has a few things in mind with a bounty of activities and, of course, a Thanksgiving-themed emblem. Be sure to stay tuned for more details.

Fighting Cancer With the Power of Beard Science
As some of you might know, GameSpot's very own Dan Chiappini is helping to fight for men's health by taking part in Movember, but he needs your help. Over the next few weeks, he will be sporting four distinctively different beard/moustache combos, while accepting donations for the betterment of men's health. Read this for more details on how you can get involved.
