New Games!

Halo 4







How can you not be excited about something as awesome as the upcoming 343 Industries title?  It has been very anticipated and rumored for quite some time now so we are very glad to see something is finally in the works!

Minecraft “360”







Technically, Minecraft, has been around for awhile now, but get ready to play a whole new game once it hits the Xbox 360. This time around, you can literally mine your way down those never ending mine-shafts with the new Kinect integration feature.  But remember, watch your back for those creepers!

Final Fantasy XIII-2







It seems to be a new running trend in the Final Fantasy franchise to make a part two of their titles.  While some argue whether it is a good move or not we are just excited to see a new Final Fantasy title in the works and cannot wait to play it!

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS







You thought they you could get away from our favorite Nintendo characters fighting to the death? You thought wrong!  With the debut of the Wii U, Super Smash Bros., will be back into our lives!  Did we mention, you can also play it from your 3DS and integrate both games together?

Mass Effect 3







The game itself is not a new announcement by any means, however, many features that the game will provide and brand new and never before seen in any previous installment.  That’s right, now you can literally yell at your television and your squad will respond.  Mass Effect 3 introduces us to Kinect Voice Integration! How sweet is that?
