Christmas is a-coming. Can you feel it? Can you feel your game store filling up with games you’ve never heard of? Have you seen the annual signs yet like the Call of Duty or Professor Layton games lining store shelves? If you haven’t you’ll see one this week.
I think I figured out why releases have literally dropped like a rock over the course of one week. It’s tax season, and the game industry is doing its part in making sure people aren’t distracted from doing their taxes. How nice of them. Ubisoft seems to have gone rogue and released a triple-A title this week. Have you no shame, Ubisoft.
So last week, we had 16 games coming out for the DS alone! This week, we don’t even have 16 games coming out period. Weekly releases are truly manic in that sense. Moreover, you know it’s a bad week when probably the most notable release is a Dead or Alive freakin’ spin-off game. Hope you like to stare at half naked women. Who am I kidding, of course you do!
Because they didn’t release enough Wii and DS games last week, they decided to do it again. Join me this week as I jump into the pile of Wii and DS games being released. My plan is to dive in and swim around kinda like how Scrooge McDuck swims through his money bin. Maybe I’ll find some gems hidden at the bottom of the pile. Or more pet simulators. My money’s on more pet simulators.
