January 9 – January 13
Things are quiet, but they won't necessarily stay that way for long. Ignoring the dubious rumor of Diablo 3's impending February 1 release, there are still games like Mass Effect 3, Soulcalibur 5, Syndicate and SSX already creeping up on the horizon along with the PSVita.
For now, though, the big game releases of this week are more humble offerings like King Arthur II: The Role Playing Wargame and Choplifter HD. Like most of the rest of you, though, I am still plowing through the backlog left from the end of 2011. I still feel fairly satisfied just playing what I've got right now, which is an unusual feeling for me. I feel a bit like Mr. Creosote from near the end of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life, sitting in my restaurant of video gaming, stuffed to near bursting and pushing away the waiter's insistence that I can stomach just a bit more. At this point, I fear that if I get one more new game, whether freshly released or through some overly tempting sale, then I will endure a similarly explosive fate as poor, corpulent Mr. Creosote.
As for this week, I'm going to embrace the idea that there's nothing pressing that demands my attention. I know Certis has been playing some King Arthur II, but his description hasn't exactly piqued my interest. I say keep working on that big dinner still piled high in front of you before you get another helping.
