Top 5 Fall Must Have Games


No matter what game console you own, there are new titles that are for each system that will guarantee to keep gamers in their seats. Below are the games that will be released that are sure to become instant classics.



2K16   Release date: Out now

The 2K series is known for reinventing sporting games especially with NBA titles. The My Career mode gives your character the story of making it to the league including making decisions on leaving high school and going to the league, paying people not to reveal embarrassing photos of you, etc. Pretty much everything real players go through.  The graphics make it feel as if you are watching the game on television, minus the button controls.









Super Mario Maker   Release date: Out now


Gamers are finally given the chance to let their fantasy become real with the latest Wii U title. The game which seemed to be a waste of time in theory became an instant hit with audiences. The game features different generations of Mario Bros. starting from the original to the current Wii versions. C


reate your own levels to play and share with the Wiiverse community, and also play levels that other fans have uploaded. Caution, if you have a temper, stick to playing your own levels.





WWE 2K16  Release date: October 27th

Another successful title from the 2k franchise takes us into the world of World Wrestling Entertainment. My Career mode allows gamers to create their own character and journey through developmental training in NXT to become champion in the main roster. This game is said to have the biggest roster as more superstars from past and present wrestling organizations (NXT, WCW, and ECW) will make the game a continuous delight. This year’s title follows the story of Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Halo 5  Release date: October 27th

Halo is Xbox’s Call of Duty as this game is looking at the master chief and how he died. In this game he is joined by fellow schoolmates on the blue team as a new force threatens the galaxy and the master chief goes missing. This four player shooter is one of the most dramatic in the series.


Call of Duty Black Ops III  Release date: November 6th

C.O.D Black Ops is another iconic


first person shooter alongside its counter parts modern and advanced warfare. Besides the multiplayer mode, the one thing that fans are looking forward to are zombies. Zombie mode has become the must have extra in CODBO and is expected to have more surprises for fans upon its release. The bad news for owners of the older consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) they won’t be able to play campaign mode, but only multiplayer as the systems can’t handle all the content in the game, which is a sign for gamers to splurge on the PS4 (that has the COD design on its release date).

These games will also make great gift ideas as the holidays are rapidly approaching. For those who are still waiting for the console prices to become lower, this maybe one of those times to stop being cheap and stop using your friends system and go get your own.

The Donald – Donald Trump’s Run Could Result in a Win Win Following the Debate

Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump can leave the campaign as a winner regardless of whether he wins the seat or not.

For the past few months, Trump has managed to upset a race of people, spark questionable  debates, and talk about eliminating some of President Obama’s policies including Obamacare. So why can’t we turn our televisions off every time he speaks about what his policies are if he were to win? It’s because he has managed to do what the other candidates weren’t able to do; bring attention of the race to younger voters.

As we continue to watch the debates, it easy to see that no matter what the outcome may be in 2016, Trump can have the best of both worlds. He can win the race and become the new leader of the United States, and implement his policies in the white house; or if he loses the race, there is money to be made in the media market including television, book deals, and appearances. Although he is trying to make his voice heard in the campaign, the other ten politicians believe he is not a serious candidate.

“We don’t know who you are or where you’re going, we need someone who can actually get the job done.” says Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker during the debate on Sept. 16th. Most Americans are nervous that Trump is leading in the polls, but it can be a good chance that this is just propaganda to get more voters out to the polls. According to the debate, his only game plan besides eliminating current policies, is to simply get along with other world leaders including Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I would reach out to him, and I would get along with a lot of the world leaders who we don’t get along with. I would get along with the heads in China, I would get along with the heads of Mexico, I would reach out to him.” Trump said.

He later goes on to say that ISIS is fighting Syria, so why are we there? His solution is to let them fight each other and then pick up the pieces. The only problem with his plans on getting along with everyone is that one of the countries he plans to get along with is the same one in which he wants to deport its people to.

Donald Trump is the only one in the race who is currently paying for his own campaign without contributions from big businesses, but according to Forbes, Trump has filed bankruptcy twice in 1991 with the Trump Taj Mahal, and in 1992 with the Trump Plaza before it was reestablished as The Trumps Hotels and Casino in 1995. With his past debts, other candidates wonder how he would manage the nations budget.

Although it is mtoo early to tell if Mr. Tru is truly a viable candidate, the American public will continue to watch the debates closely, whether it’s for the views of the candidates or to see what crazy thing’s the Donald has to say. It is safe to assume that there will be an increase in voters this election.
