Beat the Heat, Clear the Pile
In case you haven't noticed, it's freaking hot outside. I encourage the avoidance of heatstroke and/or sunstroke and suggest staying indoors and playing some more video games. We're starting to get some new titles rolling in, which might dissuade you from playing pile-worthy games. Stay strong, and play both!
I realize last month's theme is similar. What can I say? It's hotter now then it was then.
If you're interested, m0nk3yboy, has the 12 month pile plan thread over here.
A quick reminder, in order to be considered "Pile of Shame" the game needs to be at least three months old. Otherwise, it's just a new game you haven't gotten to playing yet.
Also, if you are curious about some of the previous threads, Pick's of the Pile, etc... Please go here and check out the Google doc I setup.
Let's get on to the games!
This month's Pick of the Pile is
[size=30][b]Fallout: New Vegas
"Welcome to Vegas. New Vegas.
It’s the kind of town where you dig your own grave prior to being shot in the head and left for dead…and that’s before things really get ugly. It’s a town of dreamers and desperados being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis. It’s a place where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves, and make more than an enemy or two along the way.
As you battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the neon drenched Vegas Strip, you’ll be introduced to a colorful cast of characters, power-hungry factions, special weapons, mutated creatures and much more. Choose sides in the upcoming war or declare “winner takes all” and crown yourself the King of New Vegas in this follow-up to the 2008 videogame of the year, Fallout 3.
Enjoy your stay." (Official Fallout Site)
