You know all of those games you think about buying the first time around but never do, because of those few bad reviews? Well, I've been buying all of those games! If you follow of Twitter then you'll know that we've been playing Eternal Darkness on Tuesdays. But it's a rented copy and it had to go back and ... Look, you're not my Mom, okay!
Following on in the Lovecraftian vein we have Call of Cthulhu: Darkest Corners of the Earth. Now usually you just have to paint a tentacle on the cover and you've sold me a copy; this game was different though. Opening to good reviews it soon became known for being ridiculously hard to accomplish anything. So I was left with a dilemma: Buy a game where I got to explore the shadowy corners of Innsmouth or buy a game where I got to waste my cash seeing the same street over and over. I probably bought Pokemon instead -__-
You know when they bring out a game with specific plans to release extra content a few months down the line *cough* Castle Crashers *cough* ... Sometimes it just makes sense to wait for them to release it all in one shiny package. Ladies and potential ladies, I present: Mass Effect with Bonus Content Disc. That's the way to do it!
Finally. The potential lame duck: Too Human. When I was asked if I'd ever played Diablo I probably should've begun casting a shield spell. When I later admitted that I had, in fact, enjoyed the experience I remember those immortal words so very clearly: 'Then you should totally try Too Human.' And that's exactly what put me off trying it, the fact that I was probably 12 when I first played Diablo. Okay, slight exaggeration but you get my point.
Anyways. Lots of games to play through. Lots of art to finish. Lots of photos to upload to FaceFook :\ Why do I agree to these things? Why am I a nice person? Why am I not one of those people who tells other people to go screw themselves. Although, to be fair, I do shout at the TV. On the rare occasion I deign to switch it on...
