Ahh holiday gaming. Its a splendid time of year, when hundreds of games enter the market to be sold to willing customers. But which are the ones to focus on this season? Here are two of the most popular thus far. Be sure to listen to my audio commentary on both games.
Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas is the sequel to the highly popular "Fallout" franchise which originally debuted in the PC Game era. The game is a gritty and realistic look at what life could be like after nuclear fallout, and the dangerous life that comes along with it. The environments are beautiful in their bleakness and destruction, but nothing compares to the reimagined strip of Las Vegas, now called New Vegas. The world is divided and resources are scarse as competing factions battle over the last beacon of hope and civility, the Hoover Dam. Be sure to watch the video and bet excited to enter into the world of Fallout for another amazing adventure. Find out more at IGN.com
Fable 3 is exclusive to Xbox 360, but it may however change how people view the series as a whole. Fable 2 was infamous in its failure to deliver on what the customers wanted, but Fable 3 is right on track to changing that image. The updated graphics give way to more immersion and detail, while the game mechanics themselves have been dumb-downed to be more reasonable for some new gamers in the market. The story follows the previous games stories, but Fable 3 continues into the fantasy world of kings and peasants. Grab a hold of the $60 game and $60 controller for the full experience.
