PS3, Xbox 360, PC News: This week's new video game releases include new adventures for Uncharted and LotR and throwbacks, Sonic Generations and GoldenEye 007: Reloaded.



PS3 ($59.99) exclusive was one of the cinematic adventure games to release this console generation. This year's sequel looks to be just as epic, as Nathan Drake, Chloe Frazer, Elena Fisher and good ol' Sully return for more Indiana Jones-like escapades. You'll be happy to know that multiplayer, if didn't get into the Uncharted 3 beta via a super-sized Subway drink cup, also returns with more customization and enhanced PSN features. While it's my job to know everything about games, I have successfully dodge watching most of the trailers and gameplay videos of Uncharted 3 - outside of the unavoidable E3 2011 sizzle reel - in order to keep the game's details unspoiled. The story is just that compelling. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
RPG fans have waited a long time for a mature video game adaptation of Tolkien's fantasy epic and that wait ends when The Lord of the Rings: War in the North comes to stores on November 1. Not only is this Xbox 360 ($59.99), PS3 ($59.99), PC ($49.99) title rightfully bloody, its battle for the uppermost portion of Middle-earth can be played with a friend thanks to co-op support. Finally, you and a closest buddy can violently take out all of your anger for the string of lackluster LotR games like The Fellowship of the Rings. Sonic Generations
Sonic has had his ups and downs over the last 20 years with a lot more downs in the latter half. But this Tuesday's release of Sonic Generations could prove to be a rebound for the blue bur as his past glory and his decidedly trimmer present model team up in one game on the Xbox 360 ($47.99), PS3 ($47.99), PC ($25.49). The result is fast-paced gameplay and streamlined level designs, completely eschewing the adventure portion that has made the series so lethargic and tired. In other words, expect classic Sonic the Hedgehog gameplay no matter which version of the Sega character you play as. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
Splitscreen multiplayer. Those two words have become a relic of the past, which is why we're excited for its return in GoldenEye 007: Reloaded on Xbox 360 ($57.98) and PS3 ($57.98). Like it or not, Daniel Craig plays the part of James Bond in this reimagining on the 1995 movie and 1997 video game. This is the same situation as the Wii version that was simply called GoldenEye 007. It came out at this exact time last year, but controlling a first-person shooter on Nintendo's motion-controlled console was less than desirable. Given the fun I still managed to have with my three friends last year, I'm really looking forward to doing the same on Tuesday sans the crappy Wiimotes.
--> New Games Out This Week:Unhcarted 3 for PS3

There's no greater sign that November is upon us than having four top-tier video games release on the same day. Uncharted 3, Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Sonic Generations and GoldenEye 007: Reloaded - one of these games is bound to be on your holiday wish list, or at least that's what Sony, Warner Brothers, Sega and Activision all hope. With a post-Halloween sugar rush, that ?one? may turn into all four if you're a dedicated enough gamer with a mouth full of Reese's. Let's take a look at what video games are in the goodie bag this Tuesday.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception


Uncharted 3 is going to be a day-one purchase for just about everyone who spent time hanging from ledges and shooting up Shangri-La in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. That's because Naughty Dog's 2009 PS3 ($59.99) exclusive was one of the cinematic adventure games to release this console generation. This year's sequel looks to be just as epic, as Nathan Drake, Chloe Frazer, Elena Fisher and good ol' Sully return for more Indiana Jones-like escapades. You'll be happy to know that multiplayer, if didn't get into the Uncharted 3 beta via a super-sized Subway drink cup, also returns with more customization and enhanced PSN features. While it's my job to know everything about games, I have successfully dodge watching most of the trailers and gameplay videos of Uncharted 3 - outside of the unavoidable E3 2011 sizzle reel - in order to keep the game's details unspoiled.
