Oh Crap, It’s October
For anyone that buys games on any type of regular basis, you know that title is so very apt. Today is the first of October and so the assault on my bank account begins. I currently have 3 games on pre-order and one of them is a collector’s edition.
The battering begins with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West on the 8th.
So we have the story of the Monkey King in a sci-fi, post apocalyptic world. Yep that works for me. From what I’ve seen of the game trailers and of the demo, they’ve put in much of the Monkey King story in there. Plus it’s so beautiful that while playing the demo I actually died due to looking at the pretty instead of paying attention to what I was supposed to be doing something. Now that isn’t something that often happens to me.
Next we have the real bank account raper. Fallout New Vegas is out on the 22nd. This is the one I’ve got the collector’s edition of. I must fess up to being a total collector’s edition addict. I rarely can resist the shiny of a game I love. If it has some kind of figurine then I’m doubly screwed.
That’s my favourite trailer btw. I’ve kept it on my PS3 ever since it came out and I watch it now and again. I’ve been practically counting the day to the release of New Vegas for the last month.
The last game comes on the 29th and really I nearly forgot about it. Luckily I get paid 2 days after its release or I’d be screwed.
Ya know who reminded me? Stephen Fry. Thanks to that man’s incessant twitter habit, I was reminded that also was due out this month. Speaking of which, he’s doing voices in it along with a star studded cast. The voices in this one is truly impressive. Despite being an XBox 360 exclusive, I’m excited for it. I really enjoyed the last one.
So by month’s end my bank account will hate me and I’ll be penniless. I will though have 3 cracking fucking games that will surely make it all worthwhile.
