March 15 - March 19
God of War 3. As if I weren't lusting after this particular game enough already, the endless praise from the enthusiast press has only cemented my need for this game. Both previous games exist as prime examples of pure, unadulterated fun, and my enthusiasm for a third trip into the murderous realm of Kratos can not be measured on mortal scales.
What is interesting about this week, however, is the also rans. This is not a week to be too quickly dismissed as all about GoW3. Metro 2033, for example, tempts me with promises of moody gunplay in the fascinating setting the Moscow underground. Developer 4A Games describes this game as a love-letter to PC gamers, which is a phrase that instantly endears me.
I haven't even gotten to Dragon Age: Origin - Awakening yet, about which I know relatively little except that it is more Dragon Age, and thus is sure to be a hit. More Pokemon on the DS means the rich get richer and the addicted get their digital methadone hit one more time, and last but not least, the once might Command and Conquer franchise slinks onto the PC for a fourth iteration .
This is the paragraph where I point out what a busy November it is, but of course, we're not in the middle of the Christmas rush. This is March, people! Honestly, I have no idea what's going on anymore.
