Gaming Beyond the Horizon, Gaming Past Due


Games coming out in the next two weeks I will be purchasing:
- Super Mario Galaxy
- Assassin's Creed
- Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles
- Mass Effect
- Link's Crossbow Training

Games I've already bought and/or plan to that have come out this year:
- Eternal Sonata
- Beautiful Katamari
- Chibi-Robo!: Park Patrol
- Heroes of Mana
- Kurikin Nano Island
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations
- Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All

To-be-released: 5
Already released: 8
Total: 13

Not really a bad ratio. Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, Super Mario Galaxy, Link's Crossbow Training and Assassin's Creed will all be relatively short affairs. Mass Effect, on the other hand, likely will not be. I need to decide how much time I'll devote to it, since it's going to be absolutely huge.

Eternal Sonata I own, but given it's rather... how can I put this, terrible combat, boring characters and storyline, well... Blue Dragon destroys this game in terms of everything, yet Eternal Sonata was reviewed better! I don't understand the press, sometimes. Beautiful Katamari will undoubtedly be short given the length of the first two titles. Chibi-Robo!'s DS outting, I'd imagine, will be quick. Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland is a non-linear RPG, so I have no idea what to expect. I haven't even played the two Phoenix Wright's that came out this year, and they aren't the shortest games around, either. Heroes of Mana is an RTS/RPG, which is said to be around 20-30 hours. And, Kurikin Nano Island, is a Japanese RTS/RPG with a rather odd premise -- you fight with and command microscope germs and stuff, it's neat. No idea if I'll even get around to it this year, but I doubt it.

Interesting note, there isn't a single DS game I plan to buy that's not out yet (for this year), yet they account for the majority of my "already released" list.

The order in which I plan to play the games yet to be released:
1. Super Mario Galaxy
2. Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles
3. Link's Crossbow Training (maybe interspersed with Assassin's Creed)
4. Assassin's Creed
5. Mass Effect

In retrospect, it was probably good that Super Smash Bros. Brawl was delayed. It gives me time to go through the sheer amount of games I didn't complete and have yet to complete this year.

You identify, people always make comments when anything is predicted to come to pass in 2012, like “obviously that is if the age is hush here.” You do achieve that the Mayans prognosticate the humanity will end on Dec. 21 (or 23rd)? So in all distinct possibility if anything is accepted to take place in 2012 there is solitary the slimmest possibility that the everybody hand down secure ended forward of it happens.
