Release Date: Aug 21, 2012
Genre: First-Person Shooters

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive features new maps, characters, and weapons, as well as delivers updated versions of the classic CS content. This should be a big title release. Counter-Strike has a rabid following. Next to Halo it was my favorite shooter on the original Xbox.

Release Date: Aug 21, 2012

This follow-up to 2010's War for Cybertron depicts the final hours of the civil war that led the Autobots and Decepticons to abandon their home planet. One of my top picks for this week.

I love the work High Moon Studios has done with this franchise and with my 4 yr. old fanatic he can sit and watch me play as either Autobot or Decepticon.

Retro/Grade is an innovative game that fuses the white-knuckle thrills and over-the-top visuals of a shooter with the broad appeal of a rhythm game.

Release Date: Aug 22, 2012                                                                                         Genre: Fighting Games

I have no idea why this is being released as an HD version for XBLA and PSN. This is one quirky Fist of the North Star clone. Did not do well as a retail release but guess it will work as an arcade?

 

 

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD EditionMetal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD Edition
PS3/VITA

Metal Gear Solid 3 is a great achievement, one that fans of the series will love and vividly remember long after most of 2004's other games are forgotten.
