For me it's going to be Dead Space 2, can't buy as many games as I used to but this definitely makes the must buy list for me.
Turns out it's Red Dead Redemption (PS3), and in a few hours. Found a guy selling it for $25 on a local trading site and he is even delivering it to my door! Best start to a year in a long time.
Also, the last day of the Steam sale starts today so I'm hoping for something big to ring in the new year. Sounds like something Valve would do.
Nothing anytime soon. I have quite enough to play thanks to Steam's Thanksgiving and Christmas sales.
Maybe Dragon Age II.
Catherine (Atlus) doesn't have a North America release date to my knowledge meaning you better speak Japanese if you want to play it. There will be a demo via PS3's PSN-Japan before the release I hear.
" I'll probably end up getting Darksiders, I'm very interesteed in it but when I went to Target it was $40 still and I don't want to spend that much. I'll try and get it for $20 new, throw em some support. "It's on Amazon for 15. As well as they are having a buy one get one 50% off sale on a select stock. And I believe that Darksiders is part of it.
I suppose what I am asking is: is the story strong enough to not get killed by the combat and tedius fetch quests (a common complaint in reviews I've read)?
On the other hand, for that much money, it's not a bad risk either. I'd say it's well worth that much.
I have a small list off games I didn't get 2010 so these are some of the games i'm planning to buy as soon as I get home from my vacation:
- Assassins Creed: Brotherhood
- Yakuza 3(I did buy this game, but what I didn't know was that it was used, my save got fucked up after awhile cause the game just got stuck after during act 3 I think, fortunaly for me I got to return it)
- Just Cause 2(Maybe)
So this is my list, I guess i'm going to buy the some of the "older" games first since their cheaper, so I guess that means Bayonetta and Darksiders.
Grimoire Wiess is making me consider Nier though since talking books are awesome and the rest of the voice work seems top notch (mostly this gen I've been praying for characters to shut and and let me just read text in silence - seen the voice work in Arc Rise Fantasia? It so bad its almost good. Almost). Might give it a go then.
The voice work is pretty well done, I agree. There's no real problems in overall production values of the game I feel, unless you just don't like the graphical style.
