Okay so I’m wanting to try out a ton of games that are either coming out or have already come out.
Spore – Might go to the games conference I mentioned previously, despite the somewhat poor events. Mostly because of the Spore launch thing they’re doing. Maybe attendees will get freebies (lol. right.).
The Force Unleashed (this one I’m gonna pre order this week) – Star Wars. Looking at the gameplay videos all around , seems not to be yet another crappy Star Wars game. Meantime you can sigh and maybe /facepalm while reading LucasArts’ justification on why most recent Star Wars games were poo.
Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise – haven’t actually tried any Viva Piñata games, even the xbox 360 one. The piñatas are too cute for me to resist. Also I heard nice things about the xBox 360 one from a friend. It’s a good excuse to take the dust off my Nintendo DS.
Sins of a Solar Empire – Independent space-based real-time strategy game made with only one million dollars has sold half a million copies worldwide. If that’s not cool, I don’t know what is. Not only does this spike my interest, but also I heard good things from it. The only downside being that it has no story.
Plus we bought Assassin’s Creed for the XBox 360 for 17 euros, used of course but still a real bargain. Will be playing Alstair next week if I’m not completely hooked on Warhammer Online – the open beta starts next week and I’m gonna be in it.
I’m going to buy a new laptop this weekend. I have finally succumbed to my need to have a decent gaming computer in both houses. My faithful HP is nice but can’t run any recent games, including Warhammer Online, which I am so wanting to play. Thus the HP will be now mostly used for image editing, music listening and movie watching, which are still very decent functions for a three year old laptop. The new kid on the block will be Toshiba Satellite A300-18A, which not only has decent specs and an okay quality/price relation, but also looks pretty nice. Plus, my boyfriend bought one a few months back and it hasn’t given him any issues, so I’ve pretty much pre-tested the thing.
With any luck I’ll be able to get decent prizes from this Toshiba promotion since it’s one of the laptops listed there. I’m really hoping I get the external hard drive as the random surprise part of the offer or even the digital frame, but with my luck I’ll either get nothing or the pen drive. 😛
