A lot of Xbox Live Arcade games are overlooked each year.  Some are merely overshadowed by bigger releases – or retro titles with smaller price tags.  Others are unfortunately released at a time when bigger and better retail games hit the market, as everyone is busy playing them.  And amongst these overlooked games is Fusion: Genesis, a top-down space adventure made by the team at Starfire, made up of former Ensemble Studios members.  (That’s the team behind Halo Wars.)  It’s a shame that this didn’t pick up on the masses (at least, not yet), because sci-fi fans of Firefly, Battlestar Galactica and other epics would be right at home here.


Finally...the wait may soon be over.  After many months of speculation in the "will they, won't they" sense and news about continuous add-ons for the game, we've finally gotten word when Star Wars: The Old Republic will fly out of Bioware's camp and onto computers everywhere.  It turns out that the wait won't be that long at all...and many Jedi fans will be happy come Christmas morning.


Mention Felicia Day to any sort of geek crowd and people usually go nuts.  That's because she's appeared in a number of productions over the years, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eureka, and her popular MMO-comedy web series The Guild, solidifying her status as an up-and-coming superstar.  Well, you can add one more piece to her resume, as Bioware has announced a new downloadable chapter for Dragon Age II that will feature her -- well, a character she plays, anyway -- as the main character.


Dragon Quest X, long since confirmed to be a Wii title, has had a couple other surprising announcements at a recent Square Enix conference. Not only will the game be the first true Online RPG in the series, but it will also have a version released for both the Wii and Wii U. Both had been rumored, but this is the first official confirmation of these facts. More details after the jump.


The Secret World, the upcoming MMO from FunCom, attempts to stand out in a genre many consider awash with World of Warcraft clones. From setting to mechanics, the game looks to define itself as unique from any other MMO on the market. It certainly seems to be succeeding and, from what I saw at a recent EA event, should be loads of fun. Keep reading for my first impression of the game's setting.
