The Last Guardian is 443 weeks away from launch? Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if this actually was true.

Black Ops 2 will be the first COD to not outsell it's predecessor. Black Ops was a disappointment compared to MW2, and MW3 was in some way a step back from MW2.

Assassins Creed 3 is looking to be the best Assassins Creed to date. I like the new direction.

I hate it, I honestly can't play Assassin's Creed after 2. It went from interesting to American...
