Geneforge Saga (PC)

The Geneforge Saga consists of five full-length role-playing games telling one epic tale of rebellion and total war. You are a Shaper. You have the power to create life. You can make living tools that obey your commands and powerful monsters that can crush all who oppose you. The Shapers rule the known lands, and any who try to rebel or learn their magical secrets are destroyed.

But the creations of the Shapers are tired of their endless servitude. They long to ally with humans jealous of their masters, seek the secrets of the Shapers, and create their own armies. From humble beginnings in remote wastelands, their rebellion will grow into a force that will ravage the world.

The two sides are so delicately balanced that one brave warrior can turn the tide. Will you help the rebels to overthrow the Shapers? Will you help the Shapers regain their power, tempted by the incredible rewards they offer? You can help the rebellion, or you can crush it. Which side will you choose?

Geneforge Saga is available on Steam for $19.99.

NASCAR Unleashed (3DS/Wii/PS3/X360)

NASCAR Unleashed has players breaking out of the oval tracks and onto the uneven pavement of city streets, idyllic countryside roads, pristine beachfront highways and more.

NASCAR Unleashed features 15 of NASCAR's biggest names, including NASCAR Sprint Cup series drivers Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Gordon, and Joey Logano. Players take the wheel of growling, turbo-charged racing machines that unleash their stock car fury on defenseless city streets. Familiar NASCAR tracks just waiting to be ripped apart include: Daytona International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. Lifelong NASCAR fans and those new to the sport will enjoy careening around the tracks before rocketing away from the grandstands to explore the wide open world, NASCAR style.

The gameplay features forgiving handling and virtually no rules, with the key being bashing and smashing opponents out of the way to earn the trophy. Drafting and power sliding around turns is the most useful tools in a player's arsenal; but with loose mechanics, they should be vigilant for cars flying overhead in wicked Hollywood style crashes.

The wild "Rival" feature turns up the heat: players must compete not only with the other racers but with a given "Rival" who is gunning to knock them out of the lead and to the back of the pack. Distinct game modes available for play include single player championship, time trial challenges, quick races and action-packed split screen multiplayer.

NASCAR Unleashed is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and the Nintendo 3DS for an MSRP of $39.99.
