If you’re into running around a fictional town, stealing cars and committing crimes, getting a copy of the latest installment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise should be on your to-do list. The city of Los Santos in Grand Theft Auto V offers the largest open-world map Rockstar Games has ever created and you can switch between characters to see missions from different perspectives. Plus, when you want to take a break from the gangster life – you can partake in “recreational” activities including golf, tennis, diving, parachuting, and yoga (we didn’t see yoga coming). Releasing 9/17, it’s currently available for pre-order.
GET IT: $60 (Available for Playstation 3 and Xbox360)
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, the video game that’s sold over 7 million copies, returns with a sequel on October 26th. Once again you play as Starkiller, Darth Vader’s evil apprentice, through a storyline which takes place between Star Wars Episodes III and IV. The game promises even better controls, combos, moves, and levels. There’s even a 4 player challenge mode for the Wii version where you and your pals can kick each others asses with lightsabers. If you wind up playing it ten hours a night, we recommend not telling any females.
