Play "Assassin's Creed 3" —
Find out how our nation came to be through the eyes of its native son. Ubisoft hits the mark again with their third installment of the popular "Assassin's Creed" saga. Gamers will find that the game is fluid; the story plays out like the world's most adventurous history lesson and proves why heroes come in all shades, sizes and colors.
Watch the trailer here:
Play "Halo 4" —
There were two lines going on today: one to cast your vote and one to get Halo 4. Developer 343 Industries has some pretty big shoes to fill, but we have no doubt that Master Chief is in good hands. The fourth chapter in the multi-billion dollar sci-fi video game franchise is pushing the industry into next level status.
Don't take our word for it, just watch the trailer below:
Rockin' The Vote —
No matter what your political stance is, everybody loves a good party. If you missed Flavorpill's Lunch Break series election day party this afternoon, don't worry — the party don't stop! Brooklyn good guy Kevin Powell and BK Nation are throwing a free bash tonight that will feature music by DJ Herbert Hoover and the legendary Pete Rock.
Don't be bi-partisan, celebrate by rockin' the vote at (le) Poisson Rouge. Details below:
Doors open at 8pm. 158 Bleecker St., Greenwich Village
Independence Day at Fontana's —
Still caught up in the excitement of casting your vote, yet you have nowhere to watch the results?! SuperVegan has you covered as they'll be throwing down at Fontana's tonight! With a stocked bar, vegan treats and a giant wall-sized projection screen airing the results, NYC politicos have somewhere to take their Green Party to.
Jot down this address to have a good time, below:
105 Eldridge St., Lower East Side
Tune Into The Tweets —
With the city still cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy's devastating left hook, NYC continues to get back on its feet. If your subway service is suspended, but you still want to chime in on all the presidential madness, our suggestion is to tune into Twitter's liveblogging politicos. Danielle Belton, founder of the award-winning political blog, Black Snob, is a great choice: she keeps it funky, fact-checks the fact-checkers and makes for lively conversation online.
Knowing her, she probably is already saying some great stuff. Follow her @BlackSnob!
Tune Into The Tweets, Pt. 2 —
In the mood to get to the nitty-gritty behind tonight's tweets between Red State and Blue State? CNN's Roland Martin is a great person to follow while he is liveblogging. Full of flavor, opinion and a real world edge that scares most Twitizens, Roland Martin is a person who deserves quite a few retweets during tonight's festivities.
Be sure to follow him (and us!!!) @RolandSMartin on Twitter.
Red State vs. Blue State —
Dwight Howard is gone and the team he left behind are 3-and-0. Off to a perfect start the Orlando Magic hit the road for the first to take on the Chicago Bulls. The Rose-less Bulls are doing okay with their brand of hard-nosed ball, but the Magic and their bench are holding opponents to 40.6 percent shooting.
Will President Barack Obama's re-election win coincide with a Bulls win? Tune in to NBA TV tonight at 8:00PM.
Watch AC Milan Vs. Malaga —
The best team so far in Group C is trying to stave off an attempt by AC Milan to climb up the charts. To do that, they'll need to play much better than they did two weeks ago when Malaga laid the cleats to them in a 1-0 victory. Meanwhile, Malaga will be looking to inch closer towards the Round of 16 while Milan needs a result to kickstar their Champion League campaign.

Listen To "good kid, m.A.A.d city" On Spotify —
Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated debut studio album hasn't left our playlist since its release on Oct. 22nd. Despite the young Compton storyteller's own thoughts about Nov. 6th, there are some pretty revolutionary tales being told through those speakers that you should hear. If you have already fulfilled your patriotic duties, join the #HiiiPower movement by plugging in and turning up "good kid, m.A.A.d city," which can be streamed on Spotify.
Listen to the album HERE!
