With Thanksgiving and Black Friday around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about those gifts and what better gift than a gaming gift. This year, there’s lots of new gadgets and games that would make great stocking stuffers. Here’s our Top 10 gaming gifts for the 2012 holidays.

No matter your age and no matter your gender take a moment to think back to your childhood toys. Remember that one teddy bear that you had? Some of you may even have had more than one. Now imagine that same cute and cuddly teddy bear as a homicidal murder weapon wielding manic whose goal is to dismember every other living creature in sight! That in a nut shell is “Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise”. “Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise” is the downloadable sequel to 2010’s “Naughty Bear”. “Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise” takes the best parts of its predecessor and adds a ton of new features. Do these new features make the game worth downloading? Let’s take a stab at it in our review.

A blinding blue blur, collecting tons of rings, spouting witty catch phrases, and defeating Dr. Eggman (or Dr. Robotnic depending on the version) are all things you think of when you hear the name Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic is one of the most recognizable faces of the console generation in the 90’s. The franchise has spawned everything from cartoons to comic books. It has also spawned a list of atrocities sequels and spin off games. “Sonic Adventure 2 HD” is a reminder of when Sonic stopped being about speed, and stopped being fun.

There is an old saying that goes “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” What many people do not know is this famous quote has been paraphrased.  It originally went “If it ain’t broke, or Double Dragon, don’t fix it.” Okay, maybe it didn’t originally go like that, but it’s too bad, because Double Dragon Neon is a reboot to a franchise that should have been left alone.

There have been times in history where near the end of a console’s life cycle, a great game is created. A game that challenges and rewards the player while providing a story that the gamer wants to see continue into the next generation of consoles. With the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 currently nearing the end of their current lifespans, is “Dishonored” the final original gem of this console generation? The answer is… Yes.

NBA Live 13 has already been canceled by Electronic Arts. Needing more time to error out the problems that game had, a repeat occurrence that set back the NBA Live franchise another year. It's been since 2009 since EA has published a NBA basketball simulator, allowing 2k Sports to seize control of the market. It was previously rumored that NBA Live 13 was going to launch for Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network, but no official word was given from EA on the matter, however Microsoft community leader, Larry Hryb might have just confirmed the direction the game was heading in.

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is the video game your grandmother hates. A weird postmodern jumble of gratuitous gore, gaudy colors and vulgar creatures. Here a robot-legged panda will shoot at you with bouncing tic-tac-shaped lasers, as elsewhere a huge Spartan-masked scorpion spews waves of neon-bordered playing cards from its stinger. In this 2D platformer, your victims—98 more abominations like the ones above—must pay the price for having enjoyed humiliating photos of you in the bathtub. Anything goes.

The Spy Hunter franchise was a cult last console generation hit. The speedy arcadic feel mixed in with blowing objectives away in unrealistic ways delighted audiences in 2001 when it was last seen. The Saliva heavy rock metal theme combined with Peter Gunn’s Spy Hunter theme made the core gameplay experiences enjoyable. Since then we haven’t seen another entry until now. Spy Hunter is returning to the Playstation Vita with a new theme scored by Ryan Shore.

Dungeon crawling games are definitely coming out of the woodwork as of late.  Diablo III no doubt has its fans, and I'm pretty sure Torchlight II has a huge following as well, judging by game sales.  And let's not forget the titles that are still fun to play on Xbox Live Arcade, including the original Torchlight and the sleeper hit Crimson Alliance, which is even better playing alongside a friend.  So, with that, we're trying to figure out what made Focus Home Interactive think that R.A.W.: Realms of Ancient War would stand out, especially considering the problems it possesses.

BOSTON -- Assassin's Creed III is shaping up to be a hot title this holiday season and Ubisoft Creative Director Alex Hutchinson and Multiplayer Game Directo Damien Kieken revealed more about single player and multiplayer campaigns as well as a lot of new gameplay footage and screenshots. We talked to them in Boston where the heart of all the American Revolution action took place some two hundred plus years ago in these exclusive video interviews.

Capcom’s “Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collection” celebrates the silver anniversary of the successful fighting franchise. Packed with games, DLC, Blu-Rays, and exclusive collectables, the set is impressive but will it please the hardcore “Street Fighter” fanatics?

It has long been speculated that BioWare, will return to the Mass Effect universe, but today marks the first official word from the studio hinting that more Mass Effect is on the way. This news comes on the day of the Bioware Co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuck retired from the company they helped raise.

Have you ever wondered who would win the fight between a giraffe and a cheetah? Or between a panda and a kangaroo?  These questions have haunted human kind for centuries and have fed fierce debates through long nights. But fear not, my friends, for the answers are on their way. Fear not, for Tokyo Jungle is coming on the PSN.

Skyrim is a sprawling quest for anyone to undertake, packing a potential few hundreds of hours of gameplay to exhaust -- and that's not counting its previous DLC expansion, excellent as it was. It's a behemoth of a game that you approach when you've got the time and availability, because once you commit, you're in it for the long haul.

FreQuency and Amplitude, as far as rhythm games go, are close to perfection. While the included soundtracks weren't always slices of heaven, the track-capturing, fast-moving musical roller coaster foreshadowed the eventual success of Guitar Hero and Rock Band and a host of me-too releases whose popularity is now certainly waning.

Upon seeing the launch trailer to this game I was really expecting to play a mindlessly over-the-top, silly and lighthearted samurai action/adventure game in a similar style to the likes of Saints Row, but what you get with Way of the Samurai 4 by developer Acquire is something a lot more reminiscent of a teenage boy who can’t decide whether he wants to grow up or hold onto his immature ways.

Frenzied fighters comprise a good portion of any retro gramer's library, and for good reason: they're ridiculously fun. From Pocket Fighter to Darkstalkers, these colorful, frenetic brawlers incorporate hilariously varied and random combos, loud artwork, and fluid animations to back it all up. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is a blast from the past that follows in the footsteps of these fantastic games -- a Dreamcast/PlayStation release that followed the events of the popular manga. The cult classic is celebrating its 25th anniversary and to commemorate the event Capcom has released an HD version via PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Nostalgia can be a powerful factor when influencing our feelings one way or another toward particular releases, but is that enough to propel this bizarre adventure into greatness?

DUST 514 is a free to play massively online FPS produced by CCP Games in their Shanghai studio. The game is only at the Beta stage but can be played on the PSN already. Taking place in the EVE universe and rich of its very large background history, vast star systems and millions of player controlling thousands of corporations and other pirate clans, DUST has a lot to answer for as the expectations of many, could not be higher.

For a long time, EA Sports has been criticized for releasing yearly additions of Madden to its audience. Problems that have existed in the franchise have plague the franchise until now. Madden 13 releases on the brink of a new console generation and Tiburon Studios pulled out all the fireworks to go out in style. Madden 13 thoughtout everything that was dragging the series down, resulting in one of the most complete sports games in this console generation.

LOS ANGELES -- THQ revealed its new roster as well as new features including the new "Attitude Era" mode of this year's installment of their best-selling WWE wrestling game WWE 13. Among other new features are new entrances and finishers, new customization features, enhanced gameplay and dramatic moments that include the ability to collapse the ring.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is still to this day one of the most played games played on PC. With the Dawnguard expansion recently hitting Steam shelves, many have already have played 100 plus hours into the 2011 holiday hit. So what’s next for Skyrim? Bethesda recently filed out a trademark called Hearthfire, which could be linked to the Elder Scrol\ franchise.
