Starting Tuesday when Catherine comes out, it will officially be the beginning of the great video game season coming out. With Uncharted 3 on the way to Batman: Arkham City set to rock the world, this season is going to be one of the best ever. However, with a price tag of $60.00 for each one of them, it’s going to put a massive dent in your wallet. I hope you have been saving up. I’m trying my best to.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception – Release date: November 1st
Uncharted 3 is becoming, if not already, one of the most anticipated games of all time. The video gaming world is giving it all the hype it can give, and coming from a studio that has proved itself over and over again, I’m sure Uncharted 3 will live up to the hype. With an amazing multiplayer (read my preview here) and two other games under its belt, it will shock the video game world forever.

Besides, it’s a warm-up until GTA V comes out.
