I have a rare opportunity. My wife has taken the baby down to Melbourne. This is my one glorious chance to sit and play games uninterrupted for, I'm guessing, two or three hours. This could be amazing! I could finish Tomb Raider? Maybe give Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance another go? How about that new game Sim City? Yeah, maybe not. What are you guys and girls planning to play this weekend?
I'm really looking forward to playing games for once. Mainly because for the first time in a while I'm getting the chance to play! Also I'm really enjoying Tomb Raider. Hopefully I get the chance to seriously put some hours in and get to the end. Hurray!
I think it's sort of refreshing that, at this point in the year we genuinely have a large number of video games to play! Usually the first half of the year is backlog time or, at least, running through the games that were released over Christmas. I'm really enjoying the way that games are being spread across this year. It's good for gamers and its (hopefully) going to be good for the games industry as a whole.
