- As I look over the rest of the year, I'm having some trouble working up any excitement for any of the games scheduled for release. And there are quite a few games ready to go. I even made a list for you (thanks, IGN): The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Dead Island, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Tomb Raider, and Batman: Arkham City. And that's not to mention the sports games and rubber stamped shooters coming out. I think it was most telling when the one game that caught my eye was Chrono Trigger, off in the sidebar, already released on Virtual Console for the Wii, a system that I don't even own!
- I'm kind of at a loss about what to do with myself. There is still The Pile to get to. Thank goodness for The Pile, I guess. Lots of good things in there. Maybe it's a good thing that I'm not excited about any forthcoming games. There is a chance that I'll get that Pile under control. (Stop laughing. That's not nice.)
- That's not to denigrate games like Torchlight II, Diablo III, Guild Wars 2, and Star Wars: The Old Republic. I'm sure they will be good, assuming they come out this year at all. And that's the problem with them. Since I don't know when they are coming out, I'm not inclined to ride the hype wagon so early. But someday (soon, I hope), a game will come out that I can be excited about.
- Of course, now that I'm thinking about it, there is a version of Chrono Trigger for DS. Hmm....
