But with the advent of Xbox Live, the Playstation Network, and app phones the quest for the highest score is making its return, and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is leading the charge on PSN and XBLA.

Top 5 Ways Fallout Needs to Evolve

Because Fallout: New Vegas is so last month

When I heard that Bethesda bought the rights to the Fallout IP and had begun working on Fallout 3, I was extremely wary.

When I heard that Bethesda bought the rights to the Fallout IP and had begun working on Fallout 3, I was extremely wary. After all, these were the same people responsible for the beautiful, albeit clumsy, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. When I actually played Fallout 3, most of my fears were either forgotten or assuaged. It was evident that the transition from top down 2D to first person 3D was both necessary and welcome.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is the first game in the series to support online multiplayer matches using the in-game engine, and it does it well. Spin-offs of the series have dabbled in online play, like Facebook's point-and-click  Assassin's Creed: Project Legacy and Twitter's AC game, which allow you to duel other members of the social networks based on your stats, or the iPhone's Assassin's Creed II Multiplayer (which I was never able to connect to).
