On November 5th, Call of Duty celebrates an important milestone: The tenth edition of one of the best selling franchises of all time hits shelves, as Call of Duty: Ghosts makes its way to your gaming systems. What details do we know so far? Read on to find out.
The 2013 San Francisco edition of the Game Developers' Conference has wrapped up, and with it, a few key announcements and updates were made for things like the PS4, Windows App Store and the WiiU. Here is a summary of some of the announcements that may affect what you see at Best Buy in the coming weeks and months, or things to help bolster what you may have purchased or pre-ordered recently.
This spring, if you want to ditch the extra pounds you’ve gained this winter and turn into a leaner, fitter you, you’re going to need to get started somewhere. But in a world where commuting, kids, and extra long hours at work can take up all your time, how do you fit in a work out?
The answer is fitness games. These handy game titles work with your XBOX 360 and Wii U, and although you may not think they’ll get the job done, you’d be surprised at how you’ll break a sweat playing a fit game. In fact, after trying one of them out myself for 6 weeks, I’d say they feel much less ‘game’ and much more like pain.
Following a couple quiet months (Playstation 4 announcement aside) 2013 gaming roars to life in March. Many beloved Franchises will see new installments, whether they be sequels, prequels or just reboots. Releasing this month you'll see new titles for old favorites like God of War, SimCity, Bioshock, Starcraft II and even the first major sports titles of the year. It's time to play ball! Come check out our look at some of the major titles you can expect to see on shelves this month.
After the success of Spyro's Adventures, the Skylanders are back in Giant form for the sequel. Skylanders: Giants features easy drop-in, drop-out character swaps, a story-rich single player quest and even a battle mode for your friends. Check out our look at Skylanders: Giants!
When the weather outside is frightful, tis the season to hide out inside and play games with the family. Although board games can be a lot of fun, you just can’t beat a night gathered around the TV with the latest and greatest video games. This year, you can give the gift of family time when you pick up some of the best family games of 2012.
Check out a few of these great titles and get ready for some fun winter nights:

You’ve probably experienced touch screen gaming on your tablet or smartphone, and you might have tried out UDraw for Wii or Xbox and played around with a stylus, but if you’ve been waiting for a gaming console that gives you touch screen control with just a a tap of your finger? Well then, your wait is over.
The Wii U is available today, and with it comes a host of cool new features and amazing games to go along with it. Wii U White is the basic version, and it’s backwards compatible with your original Wii motion-control remotes, accessories, and most of the games. The Wii U Black is the same, plus it has a higher storage capacity and comes with Nintendo Land, a game that will let you sail into the worlds of your favourite Nintendo characters.

Every November, parents begin to enter their annual holiday panic mode. What do their kids want this year? Making the right choice can mean all the difference between a good holiday and the best holiday ever.
Whether you are hard-core fans like myself or new to the world of Call of Duty, you’re in for a treat with the latest edition, Call of Duty Black Ops 2. Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does!
The third (though technically fifth) installment of Assassin's Creed is upon us. The massively successful assassin simulator has always used periods of the world's history as a vehicle, but this time we're heading to the American Revolution, with what seems to be a more ambitious slice of history.
The present day tale of Desmond Miles nears conclusion on October 30th, and Ubisoft is ready to transport you back to the American Revolution for the adventures of Connor Kenway. On which console will you play the story out?
I’m not sure about you, but every time I see the Just Dance game for Nintendo Wii the Lady Gaga song Just Dance pops into my head. In fact, I’ve been singing it out loud for the last hour and a half, and needless to say I am NOT a fan with my coworkers.
That said, the new Just Dance 4 game has some great tunes that just, well, will make you want to dance! What’s the dance list you ask? Well, let me tell you! The new version of this popular game features more than 40 songs, ranging from classic artists list Elvis and the B52’s to contemporary acts like Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen. Here’s a run down of what I consider to be the top 20 of the top 40.
Get your Christmas lists ready – Will you be getting a Wii U this year?

Launching on November 18th, the completely new HD system will give you an exciting, game filled platform to play with. Plus, you’ll also get a new way to enjoy your favourite TV content.
