Another Christmas over and done with! I hope “Santa” brought you all you hoped for, I was certainly quite pleased with my modest “haul” of games this year.
Playing catch up with Xbox 360 and PS3 and I managed to snag The Last of Us, Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 for the latter, and Gears of War 3 for the former. I’ve felt that the release line up for Europe this Christmas has been a little lacklustre, but undoubtedly the whole industry has been overshadowed by the launch of the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. I’m sure a lot of you have been enjoying Call of Duty: Ghosts, but, to be honest I do not go in for the whole online multi-player thing, and I find the one-player campaigns to be fun but generally uninspiring… I think once you’ve played one COD, you’ve pretty much played them all. Come to think of it, I’m not sure I even bothered to complete last years Call of Duty: Black Ops II…
I hope those of you that picked up or, better still, were bought PS4’s or Xbox One’s for Christmas are enjoying their new consoles, and I look forward to joining you some time into the New Year when the software line ups are a little stronger than they are now.
Anyway, more importantly are the Christmas retro additions, and to that end along with the previously mentioned Salamander Deluxe Pack for Saturn, I’ve also seen in the arrival of Arkanoid 2000 R and Super Pang Collection for PSX. That will most likely mark a hiatus on all things fresh into the household for the time being, but that certainly will not mean a dearth of new topics for me to over!
