Christmas is finally here! Time to sip egg nog by the fire and double your video game play time since it's so brutally cold outside. Luckily for us gamers, there are plenty of new indie titles to keep us occupied on this cold winter month. Unfortunately, AAA games take a backseat to close out the year.

For Halo fans, the widely popular Halo: Reach is finally making its way to Xbox One and PC. Endured as one of the best Halo games during the Bungie era, Reach takes a step away from Master Chief and puts players in control of Noble Six, a member of an elite supersoldier squad, when the human world known as Reach falls under Covenant attack. It's a unique, captivating story that plays out similar to Star Wars: Rogue One. As a newcomer or diving in again, Halo: Reach is a fantastic adventure you don't want miss. The game is out December 3.

One unique indie game to look out for is Arise: A Simple Story. In this emotional journey, you play as an old man completing his journey to the afterlife by traveling through deepest and most treasured memories. As you wander purgatory, you'll adventure through changing landscapes lush with feelings of love and loss. Arise: A Simple Story, is out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this December 3.
