Coming exclusively to the Xbox 360, Halo Wars is the latest game in Microsoft Game Studios' premier gaming series. It's being developed by Ensemble Studios, the same company that created the ground-breaking and massively popular Age of Empires series. The real-time strategy game will feature human and Covenant forces, and is set 20 years before the original Halo game. There's no release date set yet, but expect it to be just as popular as Halo 3, which sold $300 million worth of copies in its first calendar week. Check out the slideshow for a heap of pictures of units and gameplay!

Lionhead Studios is expanding the universe it crafted four years ago with the imminent release of Fable II. Set 500 years after the hero avenged his mother and sister, players must again re-enter the world of Albion.

The game is expected in Spring this year on the Xbox 360.

Its new generation of mechanical companions includes innovative creations that walk, talk, crawl, fly and, err, purr.

Ascaron Entertainment is set to unleash the follow-up to their 2004 hit RPG Sacred with Sacred 2: Fallen Angel. The latest instalment in the series sees players assume the role of one of six characters as a Seraphim, Shadow Warrior or High Elf. Players must take their place in the battle over the coveted T-Energy in order to prevent the power of the Seraphim from ending up in the wrong hands. Players fight on foot and while mounted, collect unique items and face intelligent enemies that adapt to players' skill levels. The game will also feature a multiplayer co-op mode, as well as five distinct multiplayer modes on the Internet and Xbox Live. The game is expected this year on the Xbox 360 and PC.

Two new RPGs from the creators of Final Fantasy

Xbox 360 owners haven't exactly been spoiled for choice when it comes to role-playing games. With the possible (and slightly dubious) exception of Lost Odyssey, there hasn't been a decent Xbox RPG since the release of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion over two years ago. Thankfully, this is all set to change with the release of Infinite Discovery and The Last Remnant: two new epic RPGs from Square Enix. Both games promise to deliver stunning next-gen visuals, engrossing storylines and complex, real-time battle systems. Check out the following slideshow for all the latest screenshots from both games.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
