It’s no secret the world is ending this year. There are just too many ways for it all to come to a crashing halt, whether it’s by alien invasion, zombie infection, nuclear fallout, or any number of other possibilities — the point is, tell your loved ones how you feel because we’re all going to die. While I’m spreading some truth sauce on you, you should know there’s a pretty good chance a majority of us will die slowly and very painfully. You could be eaten alive by the hungry undead, die of radiation sickness, or you could find yourself in an alien’s sex dungeon where it probes you daily until it grows tired of you and blasts you with its Raygun.
Once January 2013 rolls around there probably won’t be many of us left. Our once glorious civilization, founded on the idea that you can call someone a douchenozzle and not get reprimanded because everything you say online is anonymous. However, there is still some hope. Sure, most of us will meet with gruesome deaths, but there are some here that will survive. How long you survive is entirely up to how intelligent, physically fit, and resourceful you are. If you’d like to increase your chances of making it in the inevitable apocalypse, here are ten games coming out this year that can help you out. READ MORE

Things like scary movies, terrifying games and Halloween decorations in lieu of the more “traditional” Christmas decor. And yes, my neighbors absolutely despise me.
So why don’t you grab a sippy cup filled with chocolate milk, take a seat and celebrate with me, because after the break we have a lot to be happy about. I don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say our favorite tomb raiding chick might be taking on the survival horror genre, and a demo for a certain strategic dismembering game will have a demo out later this month.

Rebooting an aging franchise happens a lot and sometimes to mixed results. Resident Evil 4, Fallout 3 and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow are great examples of successful reboots while games like the recent 3D Bionic Commando and essentially every Sonic game since Sonic Heroes are superb examples of what not to do when revamping a series.
Of the numerous video game franchises that have had a fresh coat of paint slapped on them, Lara Croft’s tomb raiding series has had it done more times than most, and now we can add one another to the list. Unveiled in the upcoming January issue of Game Informer, Tomb Raider will seek out Lara’s origins and “takes her on a character defining journey like no other.” Head past the break to check out Lara’s snazzy new look.
