From complex tactical strategy games to fast-paced, modern military shooters and everything in between, chances are there's a game coming out soon that will be perfect entertainment for all your holiday "down time."

You’d be forgiven for thinking that 2012 will be the year that mech games made their triumphant return to PC gaming. Mechwarrior Online is the third mech combat game that we expect to be playing this year, and it’s the second to feature small-scale battles from a first-person perspective inside the cockpit of a hulking Battlemech. Developed by Piranha Games using the Battletech license, Mechwarrior Online is going to be a free-to-play multiplayer-only combat game where you can earn rewards and unlock new 'mechs with either experience or good old-fashioned cash.
