I have been so tempted to rush out and pick up Red Faction: Guerilla. That demo on XBL (the single-player one) is insane fun. I am definitely going to buy this game at some point. I hope I can find a good deal on it somewhere soon. I did pick up the Freedom Force games in the Steam sale last week, based solely on recommendations and Irrational's (later) pedigree, including BioShock. I only messed around with the demo for Freedom Force Vs. The Third Reich before buying, but it seemed cool (and complicated at first), and both games were only $6.74 together. I absolutely love Steam.
This past week was probably the biggest news week for gaming that will happen all year. Certainly, it was. It was E3, and not the lame E3 from the past couple of years, but a full-on assault of megaton announcements. Some of what I'm most looking forward to, in no particular order:
Metroid: Other M
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Left 4 Dead 2
Final Fantasy XIV
PSP Go (price drop lol)
Metal Gear Solid: Rising
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
So much new stuff came to light that I'm probably forgetting stuff, and there are a few things I think are cool that I'm not even going to bother to mention. I'm skepical of Microsoft's "Project Natal" motion stuff, and I think Peter Molyneaux's Milo thing is outright bullshit. Nintendo's fingertip pulse thing is a giant WTF and Sony's motion stuff actually looks the most interesting.
It's a great time to be a gamer.
