The other title is a WWII based first person shooter by the name Enemy Front from Stuart Black, the guy from...well, Black. But this gem will make use of the CryEngine3, that oh so good looking engine to remake the historical war and locales we have seen before, but in this visual style from such a seasoned shooter developing mastermind?
Both are expected in 2012 on multiple platforms.

So our good friends over at SEGA have sent us the latest in the Sonic series by way of one of the coolest packages ever! Being it's Sonic's 20th Birthday, they pulled out all the stops; this is SEGA's Mario, after all. Coming in a large shoe-box type package, therein lies a copy of the new game. Also, some really cool collectibles in the form of a blue 3D ViewMaster (you know the one from your childhood that you could view stereoscopic images with), a 20th Anniversary pin, a seperately boxed Gold Ring, numbered for authenticity as well, and lastly a dvd and history/art book. Quite the presentation I must say. But since this isn't an unboxing, but rather a review of the aforementioned title, lets get right down to it.
I remember, back with the launch of the Dreamcast, (9/9/99) the new 3D Sonic Adventure. This was the first time the franchise had made the transition to a 3D playing field, and though I imagine it difficult, they were able to keep the speed, and the frantic sense of "I'm going so fast, I'm almost out of control, but not" feeling that is synonymous with the series. Sonic Adventure was a day-1 purchase for me, and we played the heck out of it. Fast forward 11 years (and what seems like 20 titles) later and we're greeted with a new entry which tries to mix up the best of the 2D with the best of the 3D.

If you are like me most of your free time is consumed by playing either Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3 but let’s not forget there are other games out there! Sometimes a good strategy RPG is a nice change of pace from the fast twitch shooter games. Crusader Kings 2 could be a welcomed addition to your videogame collection. Crusader Kings 2 is a sequel to the 2004 game Crusader Kings. The game is set in medieval Europe between 1066 and 1453. Your job as Lord or Lady is to build a strong dynasty that can withstand attacks from Mongol Horde, Moor, the Heathen and the Heretic. In addition, you must struggle with the Pope for control of the Bishops. The game also features a 32 player completive multiplayer mode so you can battle your friends online Medieval Style! Stay tuned for more information!
