Games I want to get this week (and next)
I’m super busy at work this week, so I haven’t had much time to do videos. Just wanted to outline the games that have been released lately and I am highly considering buying:
- Rage – My initial impression at PAX was pretty bad, but when the reviews came in I was very intrigued (mid-to-low 80s). Sounds like my kind of game at this point, so I may not be buying it this month, but perhaps a sale on Steam will pull me in.
- Dark Souls – I have not played the previous Demon’s Souls (or the games that inspired that title), but I haven’t played a really challenging game for awhile now, so this sounds like it may scratch that itch. Word On The Street is that this will be best played on the PS3, which I currently do not have, but I may be getting very soon.
- Orcs Must Die – This is a combo of tower defense and Horde-mode for some other games. Not quite Nazi Zombies either. I played the demo and thought it was a blast, I’ll probably pick this up soon.
- NBA Jam: On Fire Edition – I missed out when the new NBA Jam released for the Xbox, so I think I’ll pick this up as its arcade-priced. NBA Jam back on the N64 (and even before that) is one of my fondest memories. “He’s on FIRE!”
- Forza 4 – Next week we get our hands on Forza 4, and I feel like this is a must-buy for me. Maybe even day one. I love the customization and the huge list of available cars and upgrades. Plus the new Top Gear track and ability to race the Stig pretty much has me sold.
Also, I just ordered new PC equipment. Get ready for way higher resolution videos and Xbox 360 videos!
