It may not feel like it outside, but the holidays are in the air ... at least for video games. Now is when game-makers start to release the titles they hope will be big sellers this November and December.
One that's already getting a lot of buzz is "Borderlands 2," a first-person shooter about a gang of renegade space treasure hunters, and one of the most anticipated video game releases of the year. The original "Borderlands" was a success when it was released in 2009, and critics are expecting the sequel to be a blockbuster hit.
