Is Resident Evil ready for a comeback? Well, yes, of course, it was ready a few titles ago, but will it actually succeed? Happily, all signs point to yes, as our favorite, and simultaneously least favorite survival horror title returns to form with Resident Evil: Revelations.

Monsters, evil men, dark tunnels filled with who knows what, and an economy so poor, they use bullets as money. Though, in fairness, they also use them to shoot each other. An eerie, tense First person shooter, Metro: Last Light squares you off against the end of the world, and stacks the chips in favor of the apocalypse. Scrounge, fight, and survive with Metro: Last Light

Let's go fight fans, its Injustice: God's Among Us

The Fighting Edge is licensed by PlayStation so you can be sure that it features great compatibility with numerous PS3 games. The unit itself features only the highest quality Hori parts and has been tested by professional arcade gamers. Hori’s “Hayabusa” stick lever allows for fast and precise inputs, and the “Kuro” buttons offer unsurpassed response and durability. Hori knows that when you’re in a big fight, timing and accuracy are everything, that’s why they are introducing Tournament Mode.

Finally, the Fighting Edge looks fantastic and the glossy black panel with blue LED accents gives the arcade stick a premium finish.

The video game world is full of angry folks looking for a little payback, but no one does it with as much volume and as epic a kill sheet as Sparta's angriest son, Kratos. Back for another round of battling everything silly enough to stand in front of him, Kratos has some anger issues to work out with furious combos, gorgeous graphics, and, most likely, the extermination of a few major mythological powers.
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.
At a time when you can pick up a desktop PC for under $300, how do you justify a company releasing a graphics card that retails for over $1,000? For the average consumer, it may not make sense, but for gamers who invest in a rig and customize it to wring every drop of performance out of Crysis 3 and other graphics-intensive titles, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX TITAN Graphics Card —packing the same GK110 Kepler GPU Nvidia installed in Oak Ridge’s record-breaking Titan supercomputer— is worth every penny. This next generation video card packs double the transistors, yet runs quieter and cooler than the company’s previous flagship, the GeForce GTX 680. Best Buy has snapped up a big chunk of Canada’s allocation of GeForce GTX TITANs, so if your PC is stuttering on Assassin’s Creed III or you’re forced to turn down the settings on Civilization V, you know where to look for a solution.
