The Witness is the delightfully unique brain-child of game creator Jonathan Blow. It is a puzzle game set on a mysterious island filled with secrets and a hidden narrative just itching to be uncovered. The game revolves around simple line puzzles, throwing in new levels of difficulty with each one the player finds. read our review here.

Cars 2 is a racing-adventure game based on the Pixar movie of the same name. Players can take control of Lightning McQueen and friends and race around the game's colorful world.


Dead Space 2 continues the story of one of gaming's unluckiest engineers, Isaac Clarke. After his horrifying experience aboard the Ishimura in the first game, he is thrown right back into the action armed with new weapons, tools and a less than stable mental state. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, Dead Space 2 takes a more action-oriented approach to horror than the first game, introducing larger environments and more powerful weapons.
