The Dog Days of Summer

Summer, a time for relaxation.

No school, no homework, and tons of time (at least for those in school).

For me, summer officially started yesterday (hooray for college!), but some of the younger people out there still have at least another month to go.

Anyways, summer is a great time to go out and have fun with friends, but it is not a good time for gamers.

Between the months of June and August, good new releases are few and far in between. This summer sees the release of LoZ: Ocarina of Time 3DS, Duke Nukem Forever, and InFamous 2. Now that's better than some years past, but those all happen in the same month, which means nothing until late August or September.

What summer IS good for though, is catching up on backlog of games. For my summer, I plan to finish Red Dead Redemption, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Final Fantasy XIII, and a whole bunch of my older games.

So how about you guys? What do you plan on finishing up this summer?

Sequelitis: A Growing Epidemic

"What? They've accidentally revealed the next Assassins Creed game?"

"That's awesome! I can't wait to play AC3 and see how the series ends!"

" mean......"


Yep, if Revelations turns out to be a full fledged game and not some side game like the DS and PSP entries, then Assassins Creed will have officially been stricken with a disease that befalls most popular original IPs (Intellectual Properties).
