‘Tis the season to be gaming! The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are here, and with them, a new generation of gaming. Last month was easily the busiest time of the year for the industry, but what about December? Let’s take a look at what’s coming down the pipeline!
December starts with a bang thanks to Battlefield 4: China Rising releasing on the 3rd, for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC. On the 4th, good things come to those who wait, as the beta for indie sandbox adventure Starbound is released on Windows PC and Mac OSX for early supporters. Later in the month, Angry Birds Go! arrives on iOS, Android and Windows phones on the 11th. On the 17th, indie sandbox game Terraria releases for Vita, and Telltale Games‘ hit series The Walking Dead: Season Two bites and slashes its way onto most major systems with its first episode.

However with developers shifting gears to next-gen titles, Q1 2014 should provide more than enough to make up for it! Ranters, what are you looking forward to sinking your teeth into? Let us know in the comments section below! I, for one, have my eye on The Walking Dead: Season Two! Until next time, have a great holiday, and a happy new year!
