Hope you all are still enjoying Thanksgiving leftovers, and hopefully some of you are eagerly awaiting packages for the gadgets and games you splurged on during Black Friday. So to help you get rid of that itch to play with something new, we have two games launching this week on Xbox One. The games are Game of Thrones, and The Crew. Keep on reading for more info on the games.

Ubisoft is no stranger to Windows Phone and tonight they yet have another release to grace your device: Shape Up Battle Run. The game is related to the just released Ubisoft Xbox One Shape Up game, and lets you use your Windows Phone to augment your runs.

Think of Shape Up Battle Run as a cross between a game and fitness app. Using your phone's built-in sensors, the game can simulate a pedometer to record when you are running. Alternatively, the app can access your GPS to record your runs that way too. The app then pairs you up against the computer to simulate runs against an opponent.

We're into the home stretch, 2014! This week is probably one of the biggest of 2014, so get your wallets ready. As we all know, this week Microsoft will be unleashing Halo: The Master Chief Collection to your living rooms as what is probably the biggest Xbox One release of the year. Ubisoft also has a pair of games coming out. One features a master assassin while the other is a lesser known title and is Kinect only. A superhero makes his first debut on Xbox one as well as indie hit Terraria. Continue reading for the full list of this week's releases.

Last week we reviewed Dance Central Spotlight, the best Kinect game on Xbox One and also pretty much the ultimate dancing game. Spotlight is a downloadable game, but it will soon face increased competition at retail from Ubisoft's Just Dance 2015.

The latest in the Just Dance series will arrive at stores (and for download) on October 21 in North America and October 23 in Europe. The lead versions are Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Wii U, with previous-gen versions on the way as well. Which platform has the best sensor for full-body motion tracking? I think we all know.

The main reason to buy a new Just Dance game is that version's song list. Ubisoft has just helpfully announced the 2015 edition's full lineup. Let's see what variety it offers.

Long rumored, but only officially confirmed just before release, Assassin's Creed Pirates finally sailed onto Windows Phone last week. One week later, the phone game has been delisted due to many users experiencing crashing issues. In its stead, the less buggy Windows 8 and RT version of Assassin's Creed Pirates has arrived. Tablet and PC gamers can now take on the role of an eighteenth century pirate and terrorize the seas!

The Windows 8 and RT versions also bring along a couple of caveats. First, their Xbox Live Achievements don't work just yet. For whatever reason, it's not uncommon for Achievements on Windows 8 and RT to kick in a few days after a game becomes available. This game's Achievements will arrive soon.

The other bad news? Like Ubisoft's Rayman games, Assassin's Creed Pirates is not a universal purchase. Still, the game is worth buying at least once. Read on for our early impressions.

Just in time for the Discovery Channel's Shark Week is Ubisoft's Hungry Shark Evolution. As a bonus, it is a free Xbox LIVE game to boot. However, if something is free, you know there is a catch, there are either ads or in-app purchases, and this one features the latter. Still, the game looks to be a blast as it has picked up a few awards in the past. Oh, and yes, 512 MB support is there.

As like many things that come to Windows Phone, Hungry Shark Evolution came out nearly a year ago on other platforms. The game though also received a refresh in the last week and Windows Phone is now a part of that, pardon the pun, wave. Let us see what the game entails.

Last week the Xbox One picked up a fair helping of new games. At retail, we got the realistic martial arts simulation EA Sports UFC. And to download came the affordable twin-stick shooter Sixty Second Shooter Prime and the surprise release of cult-horror hit Outlast (both ID@Xbox releases). You'd think the new releases would slow down for a bit after that terrific threesome, but you'd be wrong!

This week at retail, Activision brings the movie tie-in/cross-over Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. Rebellion will publish tactical sniping game Sniper Elite III on Friday in the UK, with a US release following on July 1st. And to download we've got the World War I-era adventure Valiant Hearts from Ubisoft. All three games are coming to both Xbox One and Xbox 360. Need help deciding what to pick up? Check out our new trailers and impressions after the break!

We're still trying to take in the full range of ID@Xbox titles that Microsoft and third-parties showcased during E3 this week. The Xbox 360 has an impressive library of downloadable games already, but the Xbox One will surpass that library sooner rather than later once the games start releasing on a steadier schedule.

It's not only indie developers that have exciting downloadable Xbox One titles in the works. Even giants like Ubisoft have gotten in the fray. Ubisoft actually pushed Valiant Hearts: the Great War during their press conference and on the show floor, a sure sign of faith in the gorgeous World War I-era adventure. Valiant Hearts launches on Xbox One and Xbox 360 later this month. And a little farther off, Tetris Ultimate will arrive on both Xbox One and 360 in late summer. Check out both games' trailers after the break!

Ubisoft is launching a new fitness game called Shape Up exclusively on Xbox One that will hopefully get you into better shape. The game uses Kinect's camera tech to project the user into the game, sort of like bringing a user into a virtual world. This way, Kinect isn't staring and leering at you in the hopes of making you feel guilty about being a couch potato.

Anyone on an Xbox, PlayStation, or PC plays as a vigilante bringing justice to a futuristic Chicago by hacking the world with their phone. Meanwhile, players on Android or iOS act as the police force, viewing the pursuit of the criminal from a bird's eye view.

We usually try to spread our console coverage out a bit since we know some of our readers don’t play console games. But a batch of exciting Xbox One games have been announced within the last day, and that doesn’t fit in the same article as an Elder Scrolls Online delay. So let’s turn those MMO frowns upside down by concentrating on these games that will arrive on Xbox One within the next few months!

First up, Ubisoft will be bringing a striking adventure game called Valiant Hearts: the Great War to Xbox One and 360 on June 25th. Shortly thereafter, VooFoo Studios and Ripstone will release Pure Pool – the first pool game on Xbox One. Jumping forward to Fall, Alaska-based Upper One Games and E-Line Media have a puzzle platformer called Never Alone in store for Xbox One. Details and trailers after the break!
