No games and no blogs makes John go something something...

I am broke at the worst possible time of the year. I knew I’d have to make tough decisions in October and November but I had no idea the toughest decision would be the one to choose against buying games at all. Uncharted 2 sounds awesome. Brutal Legend seems a little flawed (as I expected) but still worth playing. These are preconceptions, built on reviews. I have no chance to play these games myself. Because I’m broke. Sigh. Now this week brings still MORE games that look fantastic. 
 
On the bright side, those games will all be there in a couple of months, and I’ve been too busy with work to play as much as I wanted to anyway. Or blog, for that matter. 
 
For the record, Demon’s Souls continues to be completely awesome, when I have had some time to play games. I’ve also recently been turned on to the imminent release of Torchlight, a hugely Diablo-influenced title that is going to become a free-to-play MMO next year. I’m most attracted by the editor; I think a nice solid game with basic concepts like this one might be a nice beginning point for modding.

  Just think of it, a Magnum P.I. themed dungeon crawler.  It's happening.

Hell, I still haven't played Batman Arkham Asylum. Life might suck, but the future still can bring gifts of old.

@Claude: Ha, very true!!!  I should be rest assured that all will be better in the spring of 2010.
