And the floodgates have opened. The harbinger of the flood that is the fall releases has come upon our store shelves once again. And I’m all out of life vests. Instead I’ll just make one giant inflatable raft called “Coming Soon” for everyone to grab onto. Hope it helps.
The NPD Group has released their monthly sales figures for June and despite all the hype, 15 years worth of development, a hell of a lot of money, and being released in one of the typically slowest months of the year for the industry; Duke Nukem Forever couldn’t claim the top spot.
E3 starts this week folks, but you certainly wouldn’t know it by looking at the releases. These publishers got the balls to release triple-A games at exactly the same time people decide to save their money because the E3 showing for Gears of War 3 looks too goddamn awesome. Let’s hope they know what the hell they’re doing.
You gotta love the week leading up to E3. The excitement and wonder stirring about the air like flies over a rotting corpse. The anticipation of the next big hit wafting through the air like the smell of garbage on a hot day. Can you feel it? Unfortunately, it doesn’t do any favors for video game releases as evident by the list below.
