The modular office spaces in San Francisco's South of Market district makes for ideal residency for video game headset manufacturer Astro Gaming. While the company has been in their current digs for over a year, it wasn't until this spring that they opened a retail store. Its opening was well-timed for baseball season, as the store is mere blocks from AT&T Park, primed for Giants fans foot traffic. Adjacent to their office, the Astro Gaming store is not only well-stocked in the company's latest wares, but also with the latest headsets of their parent company, Skullcandy. The space is designed like your typical urban boutique style shop, with the addition of several video monitors for adequate product testing.

"Titanfall," the first game from Respawn Entertainment, made its hands-on debut at gamescom in Germany, and then on North American shores at PAX Prime. Inside the game, which is a first-person shooter, you can call down enormous mechs called "Titans," which provide the ultimate in vehicular combat. When one is assembled and ready for you, they plummet from low-earth orbit, and crash to ground wherever you have designated. As they drop, the operator (voiced by Abbie Heppe, formerly of G4 and X-Play) barks "Prepare for Titanfall." But no matter what you do, you just can't prepare yourself for this one until you get your hands on it.

Following in the webbed footsteps of last month’s "DuckTales: Remastered," another Disney classic gets a gorgeous HD makeover. More than just receiving a fresh coat of pixie dust, though, "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse" has been crafted from the ground up. The core concept and characters--Mickey must still rescue Minnie from meanie Mizrabel--retain the appeal of the original, but Sega’s promising plenty of new surprises for the mouse ears-wearing masses.

CHECK OUT ALL OF MTV'S FALL PREVIEWS HERE!

THIS IS PART OF MTV MULTIPLAYER'S 10 MOST ANTICIPATED VIDEO GAMES OF THE FALL! CHECK 'EM ALL OUT HERE.

Prior to Ubisoft's visit to New York City a number of weeks ago, I had seen plenty of "Watch_Dogs." Via the same means that most others have; via YouTube and the like. And the demo I witnessed firsthand shared many similarities with all the rest, not surprisingly; it too was intended to illustrate protagonist Aiden Pearce's hacking acumen.

But there was one subtle, yet very clear cut difference; each one of those highlighted the sexy aspect of Aiden's life. Either lurking the shadows, or bold face inserting himself in the lives of rich and powerful individuals, as well as partaking in some of their spoils. That last part is usually automatic; why not help yourself to what they have, given that they probably won't notice it.

Whereas the demo I saw had Aiden, not at some trendy club in the middle of the night, where the action is, but in broad daylight and in the suburbs, where life is rough and tumble. Where everyday is a struggle just to scrape by, let alone survive.
