What would an open-ish world shooter be without a map editor? Ubsoft's not interested in finding out, that's for sure, releasing this trailer touting the features of their mapmaking functionality in next week's "Far Cry 3."

From the people what made it:

Create your own tropical oasis, or a jungle death trap, or anything else you can imagine, with the in-game map editor for Far Cry 3. A deep and varied library of set pieces allow for endless possibilities. Plan every last detail from the flora and fauna to the derelict tanker crashed up on a rocky beach. Build your own adventure or download top rated maps from the community, free of charge. What the trailer now to see how.

'Far Cry 3' will be available on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on December 4th.

Who's this Elite calling himself "The Didact's Hand" and what's he looking for on the planet Requiem? More importantly, what's he going to do when he finds it? The latest trailer for the story bits in this week's "Halo 4: Spartan Ops" episode sets up a new villain while the history of the SPARTAN program gets a little bit of exposition.

This live-action trailer for 4A Games' "Metro: Last Light" is the second time in 2012 that publisher THQ has used an impassioned man of the cloth to solemnly usher in the end of days. The first, if you'll recall, was June's "Darksiders II" trailer titled "The Last Sermon."

Nothing insightful to add here--it's just weird that THQ went back to the same well for another game. Personally, I prefer this one, titled "Survivors," for capturing the mood of its game a little better than "The Last Sermon" did.

If there was a game that seemed right for a wave-based survival mode, that would be "Aliens: Colonial Marines." Called, appropriately enough, "Survivor," it'll pit you and up to three of your Space Marine buddies against waves of ticked-off Xenomorphs in the Gearbox shooter.

The trailer notes that you'll be setting up perimeter defenses--beyond the auto turrets, I wonder what other equipment the Marines will be able to place around the map to fend off those pesky Xenos. For instance, will you be controlling the shutters and if so, are they are destructible/repairable resource?

"Aliens: Colonial Marines" will be available on the 360, PS3, and PC February 12.

With the holidays just around the corner, we at MTV Geek want to help you out with your shopping lists! Here's our Official Xbox 360 Gift Guide!

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Care Package Edition

This one's for the gamer in your life with a little bit of extra space that you're willing to spend a little extra money on.

The definition of a special edition of a game, this version of "Black Ops II" comes with its own heavy-duty tackle box, the game included in a steelbook case, both the Nuketown Zombies and Nuketown 2025 DLC, and the game's soundtrack. Activision and Treyarch have curated a fine collection of material here (including some avatar items, if that's your thing), and while there's nothing as grossly excessive (and awesome) as the night vision goggles included with "Modern Warfare 2" way back when, it's still a fine presentation for the game.

Haven't they seen "Prometheus" in the future? You just simply don't touch things you find on mysterious planets that were home to ancient, inscrutable beings and you certainly don't bring them onto your ship. That's how you get tentacle babies.

Did you sign up for Modern Warfare 3's premium service on the PS3 and Xbox 360 at launch? If so, you could be looking at an additional three months--through March, to be exact--as a mea culpa for early service outages for Call of Duty Elite.

The service offers stats across games while providing early, free access to Modern Warfare 3's DLC, including new maps and multiplayer hoppers.

In an e-mail sent out to gamers who subscribed to the service day one, Activison and Infinity Ward promised to keep the lights on for Elite through March 1st, 2013. With that in mind, as they "extend access" Activision warned of a brief service interruption between 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM PST today.

"Savages" might be a rough choice of words for a bunch of island inhabitants, but let's look past that. In this new story trailer for December's Far Cry 3, Ubisoft gives us a rundown on the story of unfortunate island vacationer Jason Brody whose trip to the Rook Islands ends up being less fun in the sun and more "kidnapped and tortured by pirates."

Destructoid posted an image and character details for the new addition to Dead Island: Riptide, John Morgan.

According to the details of the piece, Morgan is a Navy man-turned-chef with awesome killing power. if you ask me, he's taking a queue from one Mr. Steven Segal's most beloved roles, Casey Ryback in the 1992 gem, Under Siege. Why we didn't just get Segal in the game with Gary Busey joining as a crazed zombie, we'll never know, but you can check out an embiggened image of Mr. Morgan after the jump.
