I’ve got some posts to finish off (STALKER and Mass Effect), but I’m now deciding what to play seriously next – beyond finishing my long game of Baldur’s Gate II that is.
There’s…Mass Effect 2, BioShock 2, maybe Battlefield Bad Company 2 even. I noticed Supreme Commander 2 is out in March, although I’ll see what reviews say and see if there is a demo. I think I have some download ticket for DiRT 2 as well. Probably should go find it! On the Wii, man, I still need to finish Super Mario Galaxy (have I mentioned I’m rather terrible at platformers?), but really want to try No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle now too.
Further along this year, well, I decided to get a Blizzard account to try and get in the Starcraft 2 beta. No word on if it’ll be out this year though, and I doubt I’ll get into the beta. 🙂
The main one I won’t be purchasing ever is Assassins Creed 2. Humph. There is also Modern Warfare 2, which I still can’t be bothered with for the price (cost/time ratio is rather low, so many other good, longer games for my not exactly cash filled wallet to buy).
Expansion wise there is Dawn of War 2: Chaos Rising (not out until March luckily, but have on order, the singleplayer is darn fun), and Dragon Age Origins: Awakening (perhaps…still got Dragon Age to finish once I’ve reinstalled it and the horrendous DLC stuff). Hey, something without the number 2 in it!
Oh, hell with these sequels. I think I’ll open up my new copy of Planescape Torment, or maybe try out Grand Theft Auto 4 that’s sitting on my desk – hey, it must be twice as good as the games above! 🙂 (I also have Farcry 2, although that is tending towards my “if I’m really board” bit of my desk). While some of the above titles are tempting, there is also Borderlands which was recommended last year too…
Choices, choices! Looks like Mass Effect 2 will be in the mail mainly because of this post I’m finishing off of the original from months ago (edit “Last week” to “Last year” 🙂 ), just a lot of good choices, especially since I don’t buy on release date. Shame not many of them are entirely original, ho hum!
