I know the reviews have been trickling in, but my full-time job and time with the Ms. have kept me pretty busy. If you look at the pending reviews section you’ll see I’m about to push out quite a few reviews. I know I’ve been cheating by writing a lot of iPhone reviews, but these are all I can play on my break at work.
Due to Christmas and birthdays coming up my budget has been tight, but thankfully there have been a lot of really awesome arcade games out such as Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Limbo, Snoopy Flying Ace, Puzzle Quest 2, Shank, and Death Spank. Now that the summer drought is over the fall and winter releases are going to start pouring in so come towards the end of this year the site will be flooded with reviews of new games. Fallout: New Vegas is planned (pre-ordered the special edition!) as well as Mafia II.
I also plan on writing Map Tactics for the Stimulus map pack (which is waaaaay overdue I know) as well as get into the new Resurgence pack and write tactics for those as well. I recently did purchase the new Lara Croft game so I finally turned my 360 back on after weeks of not playing. I even had to cancel my gold membership a week ago due to the lack of games (thanks to the drought). I need to get more time in with my PS3 so Joe Danger looks like a good diversion for that as well as getting Final Fantasy XIII, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, as well as the other PS3 exclusives that will be coming out soon.
I need to start playing my PSP again since a few excellent games have come out recently. Persona 3 Portable might actually make me finish that game, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is well…Metal Gear! DJ Max Hot Tunes was released, and while it may be the same thing again, the songs and game play are so addictive. Hot Shots Tennis looks pretty fun, and I really really need to finish Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Staying on the portable note I have yet to pick up my DS again to finish Dementium II, Moon, and start Zelda: Spirit Tracks, as well as Starfy but I’ll get there. I haven’t even dug into Skate It yet!
There are quite a few portable games I’m looking forward to such as God of War: Ghost of Sparta, Valkyria Chronicles 2, Ace Combat: Joint Assault, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Duke Nukem: Critical Mass and that’s just up to November! The DS lineup looks pretty bad with just Professor Layton and the Unwound Future in the near future (HA!)
Dead Rising 2 might be on that list of games to play as well as Civilization V, also The Lord of the Rings Online has finally gone free-to-play so I might check that out some time in the future (I haven’t even finished Guild Wars yet o_o). I have Kane & Lynch 2 as well as Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter, Killing Floor, Crysis: Warhead, and Shadowgrounds: Survivor on my next to play list, but I have to get those done soon or the flood of games coming out will distract me for months. Don’t get me started on the spring of next year with amazing super highly anticipated titles like Dead Space 2, Killzone 3, and Gears of War 3. My mind just gets full of so much fuck when I think about it!
