The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Tell GR: Buy, Try, Or Die? [October 2012]

The holiday season is in full effect, and our wallets are not safe. Early in the month, we have Resident Evil 6, of which Blake Peterson will have a review by release day. Let's just say he is mixed on the title.

The following week houses Dishonored, which I believe is going to be sleeper hit that has the possibility of being a Game of the Year nominee. We just received an early copy for review so you can expect the final word from me soon. XCOM: Enemy Unknown comes out at the same time and, from what I saw at PAX for about 20 minutes, has the turn-based strategery that original fans of XCOM desire. (Also: Pokemon... but do we really need to go into that?)

The middle of month is populated by Kinect titles like Harry Potter, Dragon Ball Z, Fable: The Journey, and Dance Central 3, alongside several Vita titles including Ragnarok Odyssey and the controversial multiplayer dungeon-crawler Silent Hill: Book of Memories.

But it's the last few weeks in October that we all have our eyes on, with Medal of Honor: Warfighter, Assassin's Creed III, WWE '13, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, the open-world Forza Horizon, and its racing competitor Need for Speed Most Wanted. I also have to give a shout-out to Zone of the Enders HD Collectionit's been a long time coming.
