It's getting to be that time of year, and so I thought I'd take stock of what's coming out this Fall, and what I'm most interested in picking up. This will be a short list, as I've got to finish 2 games for every new one I purchase, but here goes, in no particular order:
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
Fallout: New Vegas
Call Of Duty: Black Ops
I lied; that's more or less in order of how likely I am to purchase them, in retrospect. However, I've still got a small list of games that have already come out this year that I haven't gotten yet, including Red Dead Redemption, Starcraft II, and perhaps Metroid: Other M.
Civ V and Castlevania are as close as I'm getting to sure things here, but all games are shoo-ins within the next 12 months, I figure. I'm kind of torn about Fallout. I have all of the rest, but haven't even begun them yet! I wonder if I should just forget about playing them in order and just jump into the newest; there is no chronological overarching plot as far as I'm aware. I'm not really even excited for Reach, but it's quality is more or less guaranteed, and I am curious about it more than anything. Vanquish just looks slick, Black Ops' multiplayer on PC may attract me, and I am definitely curious to see what Azeroth will look like post-Cataclysm. I still need to cap out my Warrior, too...
