Since writing reviews is hard, I'm going to make commentary on games I've played.
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean (360)
I did this a few years ago and it was pretty good. I just need to list each game I played this year and make a comment on it. Maybe it'll inspire me to write more.
Batman: Arkham Asylum
I played this right to the end the year it came out. Can't remember when that was. But I couldn't beat the final boss. Not sure why. After completing Arkham City, I went back and managed to defeat the final boss quite easily. Still not sure why.
Batman: Arkham City
Didn't take that long. It was on sale today for $199 AUD (the price dropped to $249 officially) and since I said I'd buy it if it dropped under 200... I did. The AR card thing is trippy. Ocarina of Time looks amazing.
I wanted the free soundtrack. Also I figure I'll get a 3DS after the price drop (got a nice big tax refund coming up, so I'll treat myself).
Plus Zelda was $20 cheaper than usual. Didn't want to pass up a good deal.
Anyone else ever buy a game for a console they don't have yet? I remember getting the Oblivion Collectors Edition about a year before I bought a 360. That was a bit silly...
Maybe it is time to grow up, but I probably won't stop playing. Across the three consoles and two handhelds and my fairly decent laptop, I have access to more games than I'll ever get around to playing.
And maybe that's good. I still have a pile of games I've barely even touched. So maybe if new games stop being available to me I can finally catch up. That would be nice.
I'm not sold on the Wii's follow up, and Microsoft's obsession with Kinect is getting pretty tiring. I don't have the space for it to work properly, anyway.
It's just Jason Venter and George Costanza posting up an article every other day... not exactly the vision of constant updates from a variety of writers. Hmm.
Oh yes, I went there.
