Take a Break from Studying with these Games and Movies

Written on 12/09/2012 by Andrew | 0 comments

Now that finals are over for college students and many high schoolers are heading into the holiday break, it’s a great time to take a study break and relax.

Video Games

Video games are a great way to take a break from school. They can help you relax and distract you from thinking about next quarter or semester. Fortunately, a bunch of great games just came out over the last few months:

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Call of Duty returns with the newest game in the franchise taking place in the future. COD: BOPS2 has an immersive single player campaign that spans over two different time periods, a Special Strike Force game mode, the popular zombie survival mode, and a great online matchmaking system.

Assassin’s Creed 3 is set in a completely new and unique time period– the American Revolutionary War. Play as a special assassin and fight in the busy streets of Revolutionary War America or in some of the most famous battles of American history.

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 has its fair share of controversy, but this open world sandbox shooter is still a fantastic game that has received high praise. Your friends have been kidnapped while vacationing on a tropical island, and it’s up to you to save them with a wide array of weapons and the ability to free roam around the island.

Just Dance 4

Just Dance 4 is a great game for parties and late nights in the dorm halls after you’ve completed your last final. Show off your dance skills to some of the greatest hits of 2012, including Gangnam Style and others.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight was one of my all time favorite movies, and now the sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, is out on Blu-Ray and DVD. If you have a Blu-Ray player and love the Dark Knight trilogy, you owe it to yourself to sit down with some friends, popcorn, a nice flatscreen TV, and the Dark Knight Rises Blu-Ray for a night of fun.


The Avengers

If you haven’t seen it already (I don’t know how you couldn’t have), the Avengers is a great superhero action movie that blends Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America and others into a two hour battle to save the world.
