Did you know that the N64 launched with exactly two games in the U.S.? Those times we didn’t have to worry about ports clogging up launch day. Instead we were treated to two original titles that remain as enjoyable today as the day they were released. I don’t think any consoles since then has ever reached that kind of quality to quantity ratio. These days, console launches come alongside a flood of games in hope that someone accidentally buys one of them thinking they can play it on the system they already have. Case in point.
October has arrived. Just the very mention of that month sends shivers down my spine. Why? One would think that November would be the month with the most releases, but they’d be wrong. My metrics have shown me that October is the true month of madness when it comes to sheer volume of releases. Time to stock up on my Jolt colas. Thankfully, it has a rather tame start.
