Star Wars: The Old Republic
Developer: Bioware Austin, Bioware Edmonton
Publishers: Lucas Arts, Electronic Arts
Release Date: December 20, 2011
Platform(s): PC
Genre: MMORPG

Prepare to submerge yourself in the Star Wars universe, before the rise of Darth Vader, MMORPG style. This game has all the things I like in an MMO – terrific graphics and cinematics, questing and quest rewards, good story, loot, PVP and accessibility for the casual as well as the hard-core gamer. There is also a rad new feature – it is fully voice activated. That means no reading text in-game. Yes!

Star Wars: The Old Republic focuses on the battle between the new Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. There are light sabres, speeder bikes, astromech droids, and blasters, oh my! And, you also get dark and light side points.


Vampires vs. Zombies (Special Addition)
Developer: Alawar Entertainment
Publisher: Viva Media
Release Date: December 20, 2011
Platform(s): PC
Genre: Strategy

Arise and defend Transylvania for the war of the ghouls is upon us. As Zombies threaten to overrun the Vampire epicenter, we will use all the weapons that are available or we can unlock to repel the attack. That’s right, in the zany game of Vampires vs. Zombies, blood-suckers face off against flesh-eaters for dominance and survival. The Special Addition includes the following three bonus games – Hidden World, Haunted Domains, and Monster’s House. Interesting concept, but the game play looks a little limited.

Build your own beastie in a monster lab and go on a rampage. Eat Them! allows you to destroy cities and eat the inhabitants to power special weapons and abilities. No need to do destruction alone, because the game is also available in co-op mode.
