Don't let little things like winning the game slow your roll.

Dsi
From: Nintendo, www.nintendo.com
A welcome, if strictly optional, update on the touch-sensitive gaming handheld that drops the Game Boy Advance slot, but adds twin digital cameras (for photo taking/editing), music playback, SD memory card support and larger screens. It's hottest upgrade, though? The new DSi Shop, which lets you digitally download budget titles via wireless connection.

The Sims 3
For: PC
From: Electronic Arts, www.ea.com
Like playing with dolls? (And no, we don't mean the kind found at the adult "novelty" shop.) Try the virtual equivalent, as vast neighborhoods inhabited by dozens of complex individuals become yours to control. Greater depth and sharper 3D visuals delight as you manipulate virtual progeny's social/professional lives in shamelessly Machiavellian fashion.

Overlord II
For: PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
From: Codemasters,
www.codemasters.com
Reach out and crush someone: It's easy with the help of tittering goblin hordes, who await your every command in this witty send-up of hack-and-slash fantasy adventures. Splitting the difference between strategic planning and senseless mayhem, repetitious melees and corny voice-acting can't stop your ascension from glowing-eyed imp to ruthless, helmet-headed tyrant.

Red Faction: Guerrilla
For: PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
From: THQ, www.thq.com
Reprising the cult classic run-n-gun sci-fi series, said modern-day retread once again renders blowing holes in walls top priority. A neat gimmick, it elevates the otherwise predictable trigger-squeezing action above most rivals. Much as leveling buildings and shattering stairwells rocks though, it's still the same old exercise in male wish fulfillment.

No need to worry, amateur filmmakers - these colorful, weather-resistant budget video cameras can withstand rain, sleet and overflow from the mud wrestling pit alike. Capable of capturing 10 hours of footage, models shoot in 720p (high definition), with footage storable on SD card and viewable on HDTV or built-in 2-inch color screen.
