September 5 - September 9
Apologies for the late Week Ahead as we exit this long Labor Day weekend here in the US. It is a melancholy time, of course, as the official end of summer signals back to school, the end of wearing white and a bunch of arty movies filling the local googolplex. On the other hand, it does mean that the fall video game season is now officially on.
There are, admittedly, a lot of interesting games to choose from this week, including Dead Island, Resistance 3, StarFox 64 3D, Men of War:Vietnam and Driver: San Francisco. But, for my money, if Relic is releasing a new game in the Warhammer 40K universe then I'm going to give them my attention and probably my money.
I am, however, reaching that point where I'm starting to make tough decisions about games that may have to wait until next year because there are just too many games releasing that I want over the next month or two. A game like Dead Island or Resistance 3 released in June is a game I may have taken a chance on, but right now they are barely a blip on the radar.
