Gamezzzzz

October 28, 2008

As I just posted on my twitter feed, I am desperately in need of some new games for the fall, so I figured I would take an entire post and try to list a few that I am particularly interested in. I’m going to go ahead and link each game title to either the review page of overall game page (if it hasn’t been reviewed yet) from 1up.com since that is my go to source for gaming knowledge.

  • Fable 2 – One of the coolest looking RPG’s this generation, and i missed the first one
  • Fallout 3 – Another awesome RPG this generation, also set in Post apocalyptic Washington DC, is it weird that i like Post apocalyptic settings?
  • Ninja Town – So cute yet looks like such an awesome hardcore game, its like tower defense, but with ninjas!
  • Little Big Planet – If you haven’t heard about this game it is amazing, endless playability because anyone can create entire levels and there is so much to it, from making machinery, to enemies, and custom prizes, I think this will win many game of the year awards.
  • Rock Band 2 – If you haven’t played the first then ill just let you know now, that this is hands down the best music rhythm game out there, right now, Yeah better than guitar hero
  • Gears of War 2 – Looks to be a revision of the first which i enjoyed thoroughly, And the online horde mode should be tons of fun

Secondary List

  • Banjo Kazooie – I’m a little worried about this one because it is such a break away from the originals, but i really enjoyed the first two on the Nintedo 64 and i trust RARE to make a good game, if not the one i was expecting
  • Left 4 Dead – Looks to be a good co-op FPS for both consoles and PC, and its from Valve so you you know its going to play well, the problem is there is so much else to play!
  • Far Cry 2 – Another open world FPS but this one is set in Africa, which is a very interesting setting.  I’m really curious about this one because i have heard good things, but again time maybe short.
  • Crysis Warhead – looking like i might now play this one for a while, even though i enjoyed the first it just doesnt look like enough to get me to play it
  • bunch of downloads too – from XBLA, PSN including geometry wars 2, bionic commando, and more
