There have been a lot of great games that have come out this year. Certainly you've played most of them, or would atleast like to. Christmas is right around the corner and that means most of 2008's games have came out. Just like last year, 2008 did not lack in quality. This is a simple and short list of games that have come out this year that I am very thankful for. (The list is not in any particular order.. except maybe the first one.)
Lost Odyssey Fallout 3 Metal Gear Solid 4 Fable II Rock Band 2 LittleBigPlanet Grand Theft Auto IV Gears of War 2 Braid Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution Penny Arcade Adventures (Episodes 1&2) No More Heroes Burnout Paradise
I didn't actually buy this, but it caught my eye and interrupted my CD shopping. I'm not sure having a fleece throw is the best way to portray Gears of War, but to each their own I suppose. Start the Conversation
And that game is amazing. They lady let us play two levels after customizing our Sack Boy. My Sack Boy had super shaggy blonde hair, a pink swim suit, black boots, crazy thick moustache, a cape, a sword, and star sunglasses. He was rockin'. The first level we played was the skate board level. All four of us jumped on the skate board and it started rollin' down a huge ramp. We hit a few jumps and lost some dudes. At the end, I came in first, somehow. The second level had a bunch of ponies we had to ride. Somehow I came in first again. That game will be my life.
Soulcalibur IV comes out today. I wasn't able to pre-order the limited edition, which isn't even listed on GameStops website anymore. So I'm going to have to go to the store and be all "Yeah hey, can I get the limited edition of Soulcalibur IV? No I didn't pre-order..." I really hope I get it so I can get that big shirt. Maybe I'll make a video if I can get the LE.
I think Geometry Wars 2 comes out as well, but it's not up yet. I also think PixelJunk Eden comes out Thursday. That'll be awesome.
Feels kind of weird starting all over again, but hello again. On top of working a whole bunch, I've been playing games every chance I get. Apparently I'm getting a copy of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People? That'll be interesting. Soulcalibur IV comes out next week and I couldn't be more excited to buy the Limited Edition, Collectors Edition, Special Edition, Cool Edition, whatever it is, I just want the shirt. I'm guessing it'll be a XXL. That way I can show my Mom the cool super big shirt with Yoda on it. Oh, and I'm sure the game will be awesome as well. I wish those games would get darker, like, bloody, ya know? How much cooler would that be?! Same goes for the Tomb Raider series. When will they ramp it up?! More blood! TR: Underworld seems like a step in the right direction, but we'll see.
