    Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty

    StarCraft II, StarCraft II, what would I be doing without you?

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    Brought to you by the creators of "awesome" and "fun".

    Gameplay The land of Skyrim is the most fantastic game-world that Bethesda has come up with to date. Fallout 3 had a great world, but it was based on a real place, whereas Skyrim is made from pure imagination. With... Read Full Review

    A very relaxing, entertaining vacation that isn't quite as good as the brochures, but is still great.

    Dead Island

    A very relaxing, entertaining vacation that isn't quite as good as the brochures, but is still great.

    Gameplay Dead Island certainly isn't dead, which is a joke I've made about a lot of games with "Dead" in the title. There are plenty of zombies, and a couple humans, most of which who seem to care more about you getti... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    The end of the warfare sparks the beginning of many battles to come.

    Gameplay Modern Warfare 3 is a game that has been hyped up by millions of people, but being the 8th game in the main Call of Duty franchise, would it be able to live up to the hype and keep the franchise a success? Th... Read Full Review

    Batman: Arkham City

    There's plenty wrong with you if you don't play this game.

    Batman: Arkham City is one of the most fantastic sequels of this year, in more ways than one. One of the most fantastic things that the developers of Arkham City did right is fixed everything about Arkham Asylum that was... Read Full Review

    Monsters and castles and mines, oh my!

    Terraria

    So far, so good.

    Gameplay From a first glance, Terraria may seem like a 2D MineCraft clone. Don't be fooled, it isn't all that much like MineCraft. Sure, you destroy blocks and everything in the game is based on said blocks, but Terra... Read Full Review

    Lateral Investigation into the Memories of a Boy's Obambulation.

    Gameplay LIMBO is a very simplistic game. The controls (on PC) consist of the arrow keys and the control key. That's all there is to it, but you're still going to die a hundred times on your first playthrough. LIMBO i... Read Full Review

    Some people just can't handle Los Angeles!

    Gameplay L.A. Noire has very many realistic parts to it, such as the cars and landmarks. The city of L.A. looks very similar to what L.A. actually looked like back in the 1940's, and the cars, though most of them look... Read Full Review
