In Pictures: The 21 PC games that matter most, right now

Spring (southern hemisphere) is here, and PC gaming is about to heat up. Starting with Borderlands 2 (pictured here), there's a bevy of new games coming to PCs this fall, and many of them look good enough to merit serious attention. From complex tactical strategy games to fast-paced, modern military shooters and everything in between, chances are there's a game coming out soon that will be perfect entertainment for all your holiday "down time." Have a look at this gallery, and tell us what you think in the comments section. Did we forget any critical nuggets of awesomeness?

Skylanders: Giants The sequel to last year’s sleeper hit Skylanders propagates the Skylanders schtick of bringing physical and digital gaming together by requiring you to purchase an actual Skylanders toy, which you must use to pursue adventures in the world of the Skylanders game. Skylanders: Giants is totally compatible with the original Skylanders, and you can import your old characters using their figures, but the real draw for younger players (and even a few older ones) is the new Giant Skylanders, bigger and badder monsters that are twice as big as the previous generation of Skylanders and that come with all-new abilities and challenges to overcome. Skylanders: Giants seems like an excellent game for the younger players on your holiday gift list, but even seasoned PC gamers may be surprised by how much fun they have with this seemingly simple character adventure game.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
