Coming Soon! 11/12/2012 – isn

So, did you guys vote or did you just stay at home playing Halo 4? One will determine the fate of our country for the next four years while the other the fate of the universe. From that perspective the choice seems rather simple. But enough about that! Onwards to the industry’s current juggernaut. After that, get ready for a full on console launch come this Sunday. Too bad you won’t see any of those games here. I’m saving those for a special Coming Soon this Friday.

Do you know what happens when you stare at numbers long enough? You start seeing patterns “A Beautiful Mind” style. Welcome to the 2010 edition of Coming Soon The Reckoning!

Now you’ll be able to amaze your friends with specific numbers in your discussions concerning the number of mini-game collections that came out last year or the number of music games or even the number of pet sims that came out last year.

I think it’s safe to add the Call of Duty series into the many franchises that has been serialized on a yearly basis. This week, we’re about to get yet another Call of Duty game despite the fact that I don’t think people has had their fill of the last Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 2.
