OK, developers, I get it. You're all too enthralled with the end-of-year big-budget bash to whip up easily procurable trailers. No matter — I'll just resume my second life as a pretty tiger princess in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim until you feel like playing fairly.

Video Blips:

• Saints Row: The Third is here, giving you the chance to become Steelport's local psychopath. Judging by how almost everyone else in this city is a deranged maniac, that's a challenging ambition.

Hit the break for taking the scenic route through America for your life in Need for Speed: The Run, shaping your destiny in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, and the backpedaling hero of Bullet Time.


• Race across the nation for the adrenaline rush of evading the fuzz while pursuing a fat sack of cash in Need for Speed: The Run. It isn't a typical day in New York unless someone drives the wrong way along the Brooklyn Bridge. It's like a hidden tourist attraction at this point.

• Destinies and twists of fate lie in the cards of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. If I see even one possessed child with a hair explosion start harping on cards in the game, I'm checking out.

• Every hour is bullet o' clock in Bullet Time. I'm not sure which particular part of human nature urges us to constantly erect settlements near hordes of robot cops and cowboy wizards.
