I’m back! Somehow, I survived the fall gaming season of 2012 so I expect that trophy to pop anytime now. While I wait for that, take a peek at the list below. Oh no, I’m not forgetting anything, but it’s that time of year again where we can let out a sigh of relief and catch up on the things we missed out on. Since my son got a 3DS for his birthday, I have a small library of 3DS games to catch up on.. ~ Don

Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault is a co-op experience, much like the last game. This time around, Insomniac Games is blending tower defense elements into the series in hopes of freshening things up. This series has always been pretty popular among Playstation players, and it will also have all sorts of cross-platform options in case you own a Vita as well. If you buy it on the PS3, you can transfer both the game and your save to the Vita. The latter was something missing in Sony’s last cross-buy game, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. I had to start all over. *insert sad face here*
Strategy gamers get the sequel to a Paradox turn-based game, Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter. This is technically a relaunch, as the first launch didn’t particularly do well. Players of the original Sword of the Stars will already have a firm grasp on the universe you’ll be playing in. Paradox has been on a role lately, with a variety of releases, so prepare to get your 4X on in case the other releases haven’t been your cup of tea.
