It’s another big, dumb week of game releases — dumb in the sense that, honestly, who has time to play all of these really great looking games? Let alone the kind of middling-to-crappy ones? I mean, this week’s releases are so good that one of them is already a Fun Club selection and a second is about to become one. Well, technically five, I guess.
Such great timing, too. I earned my Halo 3 “Marathon Man” Achievement over the weekend and just need to clear one more stage on Heroic before I get those 40 or 50 gamerpoints. Then I can put away Halo 3 and not think about it again for a very long time. It’s a very good game, no question, but good lord I should not have let myself get drafted for all that coverage of the game. Writing that much about any one thing is not healthy.
(Actually, I’m very nearly tempted to gush a bit about the game’s terminal text. But no. Sticking to my guns.)
