    Gears of War 3 starts eighteen months after the fall of Jacinto (humanitys last remaining city) in the second title. The Gears now call a converted aircraft carrier (dubbed the Ravens Nest) their home, just off the island of Vectes. Vectes is also home to the Stranded, as well as other survivors of E-Day. The COG is no more and a terrifying new enemy has popped up in the form of the Lambent. See, the Imulsion that powered Seras once-great cities has infected certain members of the Locust horde, turning them into this frightening new enemy that threatens both Locust and humans alike. Gears 3 promises a story that will answer all those burning questions that we all have regarding the series. Its being written by Karen Traviss, author of three Gears novels who is currently working on another two. Though youll spend the majority of your time playing as the indomitable Mr Fenix, control will occasionally switch to other characters, letting you witness events from their perspective.

    Four-player campaign co-op rears its beautiful head for the first time in the series. Expect to see new Locust enemies (like the Digger Boomer, Kantus Knight and the Siege Beast) to accompany all the terrifying new Lambent enemies, as well as the usual array of fresh, powerful weaponry (like the new Retro Lancer and the Digger Launcher) with which to shoot holes in things. Expect a few new friendly faces as well (first appearance of heavily armoured women FTW). Also - mechs!

    On the multiplayer side of things, Horde 2.0 will enhance on the excellent cooperative Horde Mode from the previous title, promising to bring a lot more strategy into the mix by allowing players to place turrets, set up command posts, erect laser fences and more. The introduction of the occasional boss enemy (like Brumaks) in Horde 2.0 should make things infinitely more interesting. Meanwhile, Beast Mode flips Horde on its head, putting players in control of various Locust critters as they attempt to swarm COG members. Killing enemies allows you to upgrade to a stronger Locust class, letting you take control of everything from lowly Tickers to deadly Berserkers as you progress.

    On the competitive multiplayer side of things, expect the usual fast, frenetic action in a variety of game modes, with dedicated servers promising to provide an unbiased and much-improved experience. Youll unlock a variety of interesting rewards the more you play, making an already (hopefully) satisfying competitive experience even meatier. Gears of War 3 is one of the years biggest games. Dont miss out.

    The Heroes VI adventure starts 400 years before the events in Heroes V, showcasing a family of heroes in a thrilling, epic story where Angels plot to revive an unfinished war.

    A legendary Archangel General, killed during the war of the Elder races, returns to life with a vengeance. Under the cover of preparations for an upcoming Demon invasion, he unites the peoples of Ashan to eradicate his ancient enemies.

    MMH VI will be a prequel to Heroes V, taking place four hundred years before, and will drop about half of the previous games spells in favour of new, more innovative powers. The game will also drop the concept of the magic guild, instead allowing players to perform town updates through the chosen heros (only one this time) skill/ability wheel. Five factions will be present: Haven and Sanctuary are the good guys, Necropolis and Inferno are evil, and Stronghold will be a neutral faction.

    The destiny of these Griffin heroes will be determined by the players.

    That Destiny subtitle stands as more than just a cool word to accompany the beloved X-Men moniker. As a new recruit having freshly joined the ranks of either the X-Men or the Brotherhood of Mutants, your every choice will determine your characters destiny in a world divided by peoples fear of super-powered mutants.

    The game takes place in San Francisco. Mutants and humans have been divided into separate areas due to incessant conflict between the groups. Beginning with a peace rally thats being held in memory of the deceased leader of the X-Men, Professor X, players choose between one of three unique mutants, each one specifically created for this new game. As events unfold, you decide who your allies are, who you call enemy, and what choices youll make throughout your journey, each one affecting the outcome.

    Destiny boasts a story written by Mike Carey, acclaimed writer of the X-Men: Legacy comic book series. Player choice will supposedly play a pivotal role in the game, promising a rich, branching storyline. As you play, your character gains powers based on those of established members of the X-Men universe. Expect to come across many coveted characters from this iconic franchise.

    The Driver series is back! The uneven streets of San Francisco make for the ultimate in high-speed thrills as we dive into a story that takes place a few months after the conclusion of Driv3r. Protagonist Tanner and his target Jericho both survived the shootout in Istanbul and when Jericho flees to San Fran, Tanner naturally sets off after him. In an unfortunate standoff with Jericho, Tanner ends up in a coma and thus begins the latest game in the series.

    This is where things get weird. All of the action in this game takes place within Tanners comatose dreams. This allows for the awesomely strange Shift feature, a first for the series. It allows Tanner to Shift from car to car on the fly, allowing you to essentially take control of any vehicle you deem necessary. Its not unlimited: you replenish your Shift Meter by performing daring feats like power slides, driving into oncoming traffic and big jumps. With a massive chunk of San Francisco being faithfully recreated in the game (complete with landmarks like the Bay Bridge), the introduction of Shift should make for some intense car chases.

    With a new season of Formula One comes a new game dedicated to the season. F1 2011 will feature all twelve teams from the real deal as well as each teams two drivers. Split-screen multiplayer will make a welcome return so you can play with or against other players without the need for an Internet connection, but the game will also feature online multiplayer capabilities with support for up to 16 players. Additionally, 8 AI-controlled players can also be on the track at the same time to fully recreate the 24-vehicle races of real Formula 1. As well as simply winning the race, players in multiplayer will be given objectives, although were not yet sure what that will entail.

    Including all of the changes made to the F1 2011 season including DRS, KERS, the new Pyrelli tyres and all the drivers, all 19 official tracks from the F1 2011 season will be present, including the currently unfinished new addition Buddh International Circuit in India. F1 2011 will also feature day/night transitions (with the artificial lighting to go along with night-time races), and there have been strong indications that the game will feature a safety car and yellow flag to caution drivers against dangerous driving conditions.

    Gamers who have just jumped on board in this generation of games, or who somehow missed out on the beginnings of the stealth game genre, will finally have a chance to catch up on the Metal Gear Solid series with this HD remake collection. The bundle will include Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and the previously PSP-exclusive Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which is the only PSP MGS both to be considered part of the series canon and to be directed by series creator Hideo Kojima. The best thing about this collection is that itll be available on both PS3 and Xbox 360, but unfortunately for 360 owners, theyll still be without the game that started it all Metal Gear Solid 1.

    For those rock-subdwellers out there, Metal Gear Solid is a series of games that involve the use of stealth, subterfuge and gunplay. Players take on the role of a young rookie agent named Raiden in MGS2 and an ex CIA operative and Green Beret called Naked Snake / Big Boss in MGS3 and Peace Walker.

    Seen by some as the spiritual successor to gun-tastic FPS Black (which was released for the PS2 and original Xbox back in 2006), Bodycount hopes to tread similar ground to what EAs Bulletstorm did earlier this year. Hoping to put the fun back into the gun, this shooter focuses on arcade-style action with a bit of score-attack gameplay thrown in for good measure.

    Therell no doubt be a lovely arsenal of diverse weaponry for players to utilise as they make their way through intense warzones, and if its anything like its predecessor (and all signs say it will be, because its developed by largely the same team), each weapon will pack a mighty punch. Destructible environments will crumble around you as bullets fly, with certain enemies happily smashing down cover to get closer to your face before they shoot it. Making matters even more explosive will be unlocks that you gain access to as you play, things like air strikes which will level any obstacles. A cover system which allows complete freedom of movement has been implemented in the game. Cooperative and competitive multiplayer will feature as well.

    While other sports have enjoyed regular releases of videogames dedicated to them, rugby seems to be left by the wayside more often than not. This year, things are quite the opposite, with two entirely independent (and fiercely competitive) Rugby Union games set for release.

    Rugby Challenge is in development by New Zealand-based Sidhe, which has been credited with three previous Rugby League titles, and is being targeted at hardcore fans of the sport and newcomers alike. Those newcomers will have access to a wide variety of tutorial/training modes to both teach them the rules of the game and improve their playing skills (of the videogame, at least). Players will be able to play a variety of modes in single- or multiplayer form, the latter supporting up to 4v4 online play. Many licensed and unlicensed rugby competitions are available, including Tri Nations, ITM Cup, and Super Rugby. Although at this stage it looks like all South African teams will be unlicensed, Rugby challenge mkes upfor this with a very extensive game editor built in which enables the player to setup any game, team combination they can dream up

    The newest title in the extremely popular Need for Speed series promises a peek into the underground world of illicit, high stakes racing. The Run sees players caught up in a race for survival from San Francisco to New York, passing through locations like Denver, Las Vegas and Detroit along the way. Youll battle notorious drivers on some of the worlds most dangerous roads, with the cops hot on your tail the entire time.

    For the first time in the series, players spend some time on foot, sans vehicle. This mostly involves copious use of quick-time events and button prompts during cinematic sequences that see the main character, Jack, stretching his legs for a bit in dangerous situations (like rooftop chases and fights with the fuzz). The game is powered by DICEs Frostbite 2 engine, which is the same engine behind the incredible-looking Battlefield 3. Autolog, now seemingly a series staple, will once again take its place alongside you as you weave through traffic, barrel down icy mountain passes and blow across borders to complete The Run and preserve Jacks life.

NFL 12 continues the long-running series with 25 new features, including improved support for mechanics in the sport such as onside kicks, team member concussions, tuner sets and now custom playbooks that players can use to craft their perfect play from the 75 available playbooks.

    Forza 4 will be the first game in the series to support both Kinect and regular controllers, and one of the first games to support both at the same time. The Kinect will be able to track head movements so that players can look into turns and see the apex coming up, and it will also recognise voice commands to start the race or navigate menus.

    Other new gameplay features include a new physics model that lets advanced drivers wring the every last bit of performance out of every last car available. The Auto vista feature which enables you to walk around and admire the stunning lines of our favourite vehicle, lets you sit in the drivers seat and experience the rumble of the engine, or relax as you are taken on an audio tour of each car in the showroom.

    The long-running Ace Combat series will see a change in pace with Assault Horizon, with a greater focus on close-range aerial combat and streamlined controls for those looking for a more arcade-like experience. The developers aim to put an end to the idea of shooting faraway dots by including Dogfight Mode for intense air-to-air skirmishes and Air Strike Mode for ground-based assaults, although both modes of play are entirely optional. Add to that a new control system called Optimum, which improves air handling and makes those barrel rolls less dangerous.

Tweaks made to the fighter AI will help prevent players from repeating the same moves, and a new feature called Dynamic Comebacks will allow characters on the verge of losing to perform a combination of moves to earn two finishing moves.

    The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to a new city, playing out the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen.

    While the basic gameplay mechanics will remain the same as previous Saints row versions, the mission structure in SR3 will be changed to intertwine the missions of the three rival gangs in Steelport, with the outcomes of each mission affecting subsequent tasks and ultimately the games ending. A character level system will also be introduced, which features unlockable perks that grant special character traits.
