Top 5 Video Games To Look Out For In Time For The Holidays
September 27th, 2013 by Rod
We are approaching holiday season and everything is heating up in the gaming world and is set to turn up even more this holiday season. Riding off of the success of the Grand Theft Auto V that made over $1 billion in sales after only three days of launch, it still costs over $260 million to make. You have many hot games coming along with the next-generation consoles like the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
As an avid gamer, here's my top 5 picks for games to look out for this season:
Top 5 Video Games For 2013 Holidays
Batman: Arkham Origins
Beyond: Two Souls
Call Of Duty: Ghosts
This is beautiful mix of Grand Theft Auto stylings & Metal Gear espionage along with hacking + web 2.0 influences. The game revolves around the main character Aiden Pierce who uses a melee weapon, pistol, and his smartphone to hack into systems like traffic cams, other people's phones, and more to retrieve information to complete a task. Coming November 19th for the PS3 + Xbox 360 and the newer console on the 15th.
Honorable Mentions For Next-Gen Consoles (Games For the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One):
Dead Rising 3 - you play the hero somehow stuck in a zombie-infested town and must survive. But rather than use the traditional weapons such as guns, knives, and such - you can get creative and attach a sledgehammer to a circular saw and have a double-edged weapon to fend off the undead.
NBA Live 14 - After missing out last year, Ea Sports is back with the NBA Live franchise. At E3, they revealed a super-brief trailer starring Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers doing some quick dribbling that displays their new physics system called BounceTek. Yeah, I know. I guess they think they still have their following and NBA 2K didn't take them all.
Ryse: Son of Rome - This is a 3rd person combat in a sort-of free world environment that takes place in Rome (of course) during the days of gladiators who fought to the death as a spectator sport.
All three of these titles are launch titles for the newer consoles and will be available in November or December.
