It's been a while since I've posted anything about games. Perhaps that's because nothing has really caught my attention outside of a few XBOX Arcade titles (i.e. DeathSpank, The Misadventures Of P.B. Winterbottom - see video below). I've had a good time playing Star Wars: Force Unleashed but then again it's always fun to light sabre things to death. DarkStar One: Broken Alliance sounds like it could be a good time but I don't know if it's worth forty bucks.
Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Collection comes out next week and it has a shit-ton of stuff, Awakenings, DLC, etc and all for $60. Don't ask me how much I spent on individual DLCs. This has left a bad taste in my mouth.
Why? Because now I'm not that thrilled about Fallout: New Vegas coming out on the 19th. I'm still excited but...I suddenly don't feel the need to run out and buy it right away. In fact I feel like I would be a patsy if I ran out and spent the money on it on launch day. If I wait until all the DLC and GOTY edition come out then I conceivably save a good amount of money. It's not just the saving the money it's the factor of I want the whole game experience at once, not handed out piece-meal like a miserly grandmother. "Epic" games are barely 40 hour experiences with a little bit added here and there a few months later. Nostalgia moment: Dragon Warrior VII -PSOne (2001) I played for 300+ hours on one play-through, not the same game played six times through. That being said I have played through Fallout 3 more than once and Dragon Age several times with different character builds but there's nothing fresh to it. Then when DLC comes out, the additional content -especially equipment - are a potential game breaker. What I mean by "game breaker" is the new equipment is so powerful that it makes any challenge in the game null and void.
Grumble grumble...maybe I'll just pick up a copy of Civilization V.
