Batman: Arkham Asylum

MechWarrior Online (Video)

The MechWarrior franchise, appearing on both the PC and Xbox throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s, was, at its core, about pitting large piloted machines called mechs in battle against each other. The MechWarrior games were known for being complex; weapons would overheat, customizing your mech was of the utmost importance and nearly every key or button was used to control your robotic behemoth of death. Due to legal issues, the MechWarrior series fell into obscurity, until now: the upcoming MechWarrior Online is a free-to-play action game set to launch on the PC. MechWarrior Online combines all the aspects fans have come to expect from the series with one major change; now, every mech you’re fighting against is piloted by a human instead of an artificial intelligence.

Far Cry 3

The Far Cry series has always been about two things: open-ended gameplay and a unique setting that seems to change every game. For example, Far Cry was set on a tropical paradise, while Far Cry 2 was set in the plains of Africa, and both games gave you multiple ways to dispatch your enemies. Far Cry 3, releasing for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, continues this trend. Even though the story is once again set on a tropical island, the island features many different locations; expect to be battling on sandy beaches and mountaintops in addition to the dense jungle atmosphere. The story follows Jason Brody, who has become trapped on the island, as a madman named Vaas, along with his crew, seek to end Jason’s life. Surviving the first attempt on his life by Vaas, Jason seeks revenge in this first-person shooter.

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

When StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was released in 2010, it featured the Terran race in its story mode. This was due to developer Blizzard’s plan of releasing three StarCraft II games, with each game focusing on one race, to tell a stronger, more cohesive tale. True to their word, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, releasing exclusively for the PC, does just that. In this game, the story focuses on the Zerg empire and Sarah Kerrigan, the previous queen of the Zerg, who is looking to retake her position as queen. Set after the events of Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm is a direct sequel; to fully comprehend the story, it is recommended that Wings of Liberty is played first.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

The Ghost Recon series has seen many changes since its inception in 2001. Not only has the setting of each game changed, many times the era of time the game is based in has changed as well. The newest entry to the series, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, keeps the series’ tradition alive; the game is set in an urban environment while being set in the future. Not all things have changed, as the game is still a third person shooter with a heavy reliance on squad based mechanics. However, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, set to come out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, even looks to slightly alter this mechanic as well.

Battlefield 3

The main Battlefield series, which has mostly been PC exclusive, has been known primarily for one thing: multiplayer gaming. Single player was regulated to little more than playing the artificial intelligence on multiplayer maps, while the real bulk of the game rested in the game’s online multiplayer modes. Battlefield 3 made two large changes to the franchise. First, it is being released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in addition to the PC. Second, it added in a unique single player mode similar to the one seen in the Call of Duty games. However, Battlefield 3, like past titles, still places a large emphasis on multiplayer gaming.

Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 marks the final game in this Xbox 360 exclusive trilogy. Players have followed Marcus Fenix from his jail cell beginnings to this final chapter, as the war for Sera has now split three ways: humans versus Locust vs. Lambent. In the third chapter, all bets are off the table as the human government has been disbanded, while the remaining members of humanity fight for their lives; not everyone will survive to see the end of the war. Gears of War 3 packs 8 to 10 hours in its single player mode, with nary a break in the action, producing enough explosions and large scale battles to rival any summer blockbuster movie. For the first time in the series, players will play characters other than Marcus Fenix. In addition, the co-operative online play for the campaign has been expanded from two players to four.
