I don’t know about all of ya’ll, but I’m really looking forward to using up some of my holiday time to finally really dig my nails into a lot of the great game releases from the past months.

We have been playing a crap-ton of Call of Duty: Black Ops this week and I can pretty happily say that Treyearch have really done a fantastic job at balancing the gameplay and fixing so many of the issues that plagued Modern Warfare 2, so good on them.

What are you guys all busy playing at the moment? What are you going to play when the holidays roll around?
