Sorry, I've been reading a lot of Batman comics over the last few weeks.
If we're to ignore the fact that I've recently married, and I haven't written a thing because of the long (and much enjoyed) honeymoon, I'll cut straight to the chase: I'm not ready for 2011. There are still plenty of games from the years previous with which I am yet to properly engage. A gaming hangover as it were.
My plans for the next few weeks involve finishing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. From there, my priorities are unclear. Do I finally finish Mass Effect 2? Do I delve into the thirty-something games I purchased during the Steam Holiday Sale? The point of this musing for you all, is that I probably won't be touching any games released this year until March, with the release of Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.
Speaking of the Steam Holiday Sale, it's still going until approximately 4am Tuesday (AEST), so get on there and grab a bargain (you will have missed some of the more unbelievable daily specials, but there are still plenty of games going for little more than a song). Some of my picks included Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition, Command & Conquer 4: Tiberium Twilight, Left 4 Dead 2, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Tropico 3, Machinarium, Hitman: Blood Money, Crysis and Crysis: Warhead. All up I spent just over two hundred dollars, and have (arguably) enough games to last me up until the next end of year sale.
I hope that you'll stay with me until I'm ready for the new year. I've spent just over a month with a Windows 7 phone, and have some impressions to impart. I've also played through quite a few games for the WP7 OS; the problem of course, is that almost all of the games I've played have been released on the iPhone, but still cost more (in the case of Bejewled LIVE, the difference is over 5 dollars! I'm not going to argue semantics either. I know that Bejeweled 2 is available for IOS, and Bejeweled Live is on WP7: but they are the same freaking game).
What did you guys play over the holiday break? Did you miss me? Happy New Year!
