  • The holidays can be a wonderful and cozy time of year. We reconnect with those long forgotten warm sweaters that have waited patiently for us in the back of our closets. Everything we eat and drink is pumpkin flavored. We start to look longingly at our fireplaces, and even anticipate the first snowfall. But for many people, the shift out of daylight savings and other harbingers of fall and winter create feelings of anxiety, loneliness, anger, and depression. Many therapists report an upswing in referrals this time of year, and the focus is often on the difficult feelings that colder weather, less sunshine, and the approaching holiday season evokes.

  • NEW YORK (AP) - Starbucks plans to let customers across the U.S. order ahead on their smartphones over the next year, a move that should help shrink lines as it pushes more snacks, sandwiches and even wine.

  • NEW YORK (AP) – The Christmas season is one of New York City’s busiest times of year. Tickets for Broadway shows and hotel rooms go for premium prices and lines for top attractions are long. But some of the best and most beautiful things to see and do around the city during the holidays are free. Here are five of them.

  • SEATTLE (AP) - A state review of logging near the deadly March landslide in Oso has found that a timber company logged one acre more than was allowed under a 2004 permit, but the report was inconclusive on whether logging strayed into a more restrictive area.

  • SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say they have arrested a 26-year-old man accused of beating a cab driver unconscious, calling the driver a terrorist and telling him to “go back to your own country.”

  • SEATTLE (AP) - Billionaire Paul Allen has announced a new medical initiative to create a cell science institute aimed at uncovering the ways cells work.

  • Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution (PS3/Xbox 360/PC) (http://www.naruto-stormrevolution.com) Rated T for Teen by ESRB. Full Disclosure, I despise Naruto. I find it to be one of the most God-awful anime properties to ever exist, from its garbage animation quality, to its over-wrought story, terrible characters, and cancerous fan-base that helped destroy the anime scene in the States. Literally nothing good has come from the series, except for a few mildly entertaining brawlers.
  • Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD ReMIX Box Art(http://www.kingdomhearts.com/index.php)  Rated E 10+ by ESRB. Kingdom Hearts fans your wait is over, the final installment of Square’s HD remasters of the Kingdom Hearts franchise is here. Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX features HD versions of Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix. Also included are HD cutscenes of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. This is also the first time both of these final mix titles have been available in North America, and fans of the series should not miss out on this excellent bundle.

  • Lords of The Fallen (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art(http://lordsofthefallen.com/)  Rated M by ESRB. Lords of the Fallen marks the developer CI Games’ first foray into AAA action RPG genre that lends itself to the framework established by the critically acclaimed “Souls” series, though falling short of that illustrious title. However, for a developer that previously released bargain-bin Nintendo DS games and budget shooters this effort is admirable and worth a look for those individuals who feel the wait between Dark Souls 2 (PS3, X360, PC) and Bloodborne (PS4) is taking a bit too long.

  • Grand Theft Auto V (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art (http://www.rockstargames.com/V/) Rated M by ESRB About one year later, and Grand Theft Auto V is now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at long last. Players of the game original release could tell that the game really wasn’t optimized for play on the past-gen systems, but that never stopped it from being one of last year’s best games. Now, with all the new improvements, tweaks, and modifications, Grand Theft Auto V is still one of the best games to come out this year…again.
  • Never Alone (PS4, Xbox One, PC) Box Art (http://neveralonegame.com/) Rated E by ESRB. Never Alone is a very unique experience that I haven’t quite had in a video game before. Never Alone, developed by a small Seattle studio in conjunction with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council that celebrates the culture and storytelling traditions of the Iñupiat people. I’ve never played a game before that has immersed me into a culture like Never Alone has done.
  • Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 (PS Vita) Box Art (http://ideafintl.com/rebirth1/) Rated T for Teen by ESRB. Neptunia fans rejoice, Hyper Dimensional antics are now portable! If you have played the Neptunia games before, this is not particularly refreshing but Neptunia Rebirth is a great opportunity to play bite-sized missions, pause boss battles, and chunk away at the 70+ hours of content during your busy work week.
  • Digimon All Star Rumble Box Art(http://www.bandainamcogames.com/game/digimon_all_star_rumble.html)  Rated E10+ by ESRB. Digimon games have been very popular and successful overseas, so when I heard a Digimon game was coming over to the Us, I was pretty excited! Then I heard it was Digimon All Star Rumble, a party based fighting game, and I got a little less excited, since the successful titles were roleplaying games. Finally, I played the game, and my excitement was completely gone.

  • Pac-Man Ghostly Adventures 2 Box Art(http://www.pacisback.com/)  Rated E10+ by ESRB. Ghostly Adventures 2 follows Pac Man and his friends Cyli and Spiral as they try to stop the terrible ghost menace from Lord Betrayus. The game is based off of the currently airing animated series on Disney, and features many familiar characters and voice actors from the cartoons. Ghostly Adventures 2 follows the same basic platforming and collecting mechanics of the first game. Players will control Pac Man through 40 levels across 5 themed worlds as they hunt down Betrayus.
