Fall is in full swing, and winter is rapidly approaching. As the weather turns cold, the opportunities for outdoor fun start to dwindle. Good times must be had indoors, and that means you can and should clock in some quality gaming time. Because what’s more fun than tearing up the Commonwealth, such as you can in the all-new, recently released Fallout 4? At least there’s no cold winters after nuclear fallout…
The All-Platform Games That Will Keep You Warm this Winter
The season’s most anticipated games are for consoles. This includes the recently launched Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. What’s new this time around? Two all new zombie storylines with an all-star cast that includes Jeff Goldblum (Nero) and Heather Graham (Jessica Rose). Released in October, Minecraft: Story Mode is basically a mix of classic crafting and The Walking Dead. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is out, and has received numerous accolades for its representation of Victorian London. There’s also SOMA, which launched in September and is an entertaining fictional survival horror game.
If you’re looking forward to new releases, Just Cause 3 is launching on December 1st. A heart-pounding adrenaline game, the game’s creators have promised there is very little you can’t blow up. ADR1FT is the perfect cure for the doldrums, which set in sometime after Christmas. The first-person interactive fiction game should hold your interest until the snow begins to melt.
Platform Exclusive Games to Help You Pass the Time
Bloodborne was one of this year’s most anticipated games for the PlayStation 4 (PS4). If you haven’t played it, this winter is the perfect opportunity to try the highly rated title. If you have played it, another go around is just what the weatherman ordered.
This winter, the computer holds the key to more than just addicting platforms. Online betting, such as daily fantasy and casino gambling are more popular than ever due to looser restrictions and intelligent algorithms that make play safer. Before you pony up and make a bet, check out Grizzly’s #1 Gambling Guide, which will ensure you play only at sites with the best reputation and rewards.
Overall, no matter what system you use, there’s something exciting to play. Exclusively on the PC, the long awaited Dreadnought is releasing to PC and MAC sometime in early 2015. Fable Legends is releasing to Xbox One, but if you were lucky you’ve already been chosen for the free beta edition for a sneak peek at gameplay. If you’re not ready to shell out funds for a new title, Let it Die is PS4’s free-to-play, hack-and-slash action title.
The Best of The Winter Classics
The eternally awesome games are remembered for their strong protagonists, and big winter scenes with snowy adventures or levels of icy awesomeness. Remember Mega Man X from 1993? The Chill Penguin Stage is worth revisiting if you still have a Super NES or Super Famicom.
If you don’t have any old consoles gathering dust on the shelves, that’s okay. There’s plenty of new classics to revisit, including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. There’s more game than can be completed in a single winter, so there’s enough content to keep you busy until all the snow has melted. Other wintery titles are Rayman Origins: Ice-Fishing Folly, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2: Cliffhanger, Lost Planet, and Uncharted 2: Heart of Ice.
If you’re a gamer gearing up for winter, rest assured there’s plenty to keep you occupied. You have nearly unlimited options for quality gaming, so go ahead and take your pick. You can take a break in spring.
