Video game swag is one of our favorite things. It's not enough for you to purchase the biggest AAA titles and see them through to completion? Need a little more? Something tangible? You're not alone. You've gotta show your love somehow, preferably through throwing money at the manufacturers handling the distribution of the games' almighty swag. Whether it's a trinket such as a keychain you lose between your sofa cushions or a limited edition statue, there are plenty of options out there to nerd out.

We've got you covered with some of the most droolworthy fan swag available for three of this year's biggest releases. No matter if you're a gamer with a “casual” budget and think a novelization is pushing it, or a “normal” fan who represents with jewelry and T-shirts, or a “hardcore” fan with nothing better to do than spend money, we've got you covered. No matter if you're just saving the lunch money Mom gave you or if you're hacking away at that college fund, there's something here for you. Get ready to support your favorite game in style!

A Guide To the Next Generation of Consoles

The surest guide to tell that the next-generation of video game consoles are on their way, outside of official announcements and specs, is that flagship series’ hit their stride and trilogies are wrapping up. Case in point, we just battled through the last horde as Marcus Fenix in Gears of War 3 and, next month, we’ll assume the role of Nathan Drake in Uncharted 3. Whether or not Epic Games and Naughty Dog continue to develop these hugely successful IPs, the teams are likely to be experimenting with next-generation hardware long before we see the fruits of their labor.

In fact, Epic Games is experimenting with next-generation technology right now given the fact that president Mike Capps told Industry Gamers that “We’re very interested in the Wii U.” Nintendo’s 2012-bound console was unveiled at this year’s E3, and speculation has it that E3 2012 will be the trade show where Microsoft announces the successor to Xbox 360 and Sony reveals the tech specs for PS4. Until that time, precedence from the last two console generations tells us a lot about what to expect from the next-generation console launches.

Gears of War 3 Horde 2.0 Guide; The Best Ways To Survive All 50 Waves

The Gears of War 3  DLC, Horde Command Pack, will be released on November 1, 2011. The first pack of DLC for Gears 3 will expand the experience for my favorite mode, Horde. It will add new fortification levels, commands posts, and three multiplayer maps. If that doesn't impress you, you'll also be getting three new characters, including my personal favorite, Bernie.

The three maps new to Gears 3 will be Blood Drive, Rustlung and Azura. Classic Gears maps already in Gears 3 have undergone major upgrades. Based on this I think it's safe to say maps like Blood Drive will look and feel different.

Keep reading for more details on the maps, characters and more.

The 10 Greatest Canceled Video Games

You might be surprised how many great video games get canceled far into their development cycles. Plenty of titles go all the way to having fully playable build, only to have the plug pulled at the last minute. Millions of manpower hours has been put into games that never saw the light of day, even though they look like they might have done respectably well if they'd seen the light of day.

But, thanks to the internet, games that never had a chance can still be seen and appreciated on the web. Even if they might not look good, you can appreciate what the developers were going for. You just might not ever understand why they got canceled in the first place. Read on for our list of the greatest canceled video games, and ponder about what might have been.

Uncharted: Your Guide To Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Need a guide to the world of Uncharted? Nathan Drake is a bit of a Renaissance man. He's been there, done that, and has the long-sleeved henley to prove it. Always traveling with lovely ladies and the shadiest of company, unearthing the world's greatest treasures, this adventurer is about to set off on his biggest yet. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is set to be an epic entry into the Uncharted saga, and if you haven't been around from the start, you'll have missed out on one of the most explosive series the PlayStation 3 library has to offer.

With the third game's release just around the corner, we thought it'd be a great time to give all of you Uncharted neophytes a relatively spoiler-free breakdown (though you've been warned, I've gotta let some details slip) of the previous two games and a peek at the third. By the end you'll be itching like the rest of us to uncover the secrets of Drake's past, as Uncharted 3's luscious trailer teases. Suit up, and let's get moving!
