Oh, I know, plenty of people like that out there. It's part of the reason, I think, why it's nearly impossible to actually talk about the issue.
But, anyway. I'm all done with Metal Gear ( Snake Eater, Peace Walker, Sons of Liberty and Guns of the Patriots, one after the other, over a course of two weeks or so! ), and ...
Here's my problem. I'm not excited about Mass Effect 3. In fact, I'm slightly worried. Not because I think it'll be a bad game, or that I won't enjoy it. I'm sure I will. I'm also sure I'll be getting it at release, and playing it the moment it's available ( even if that moment is 3AM here .. I mean, it wouldn't be the first time! ), but ... somehow, I'm just a little bit anxious. I guess I don't want it to end could be one part of that. Also, it's fucking everywhere. More than ever, I'm trying to avoid spoilers and anything that might lessen the experience of the game. I haven't even played the demo, and I'm a pretty serious fan of Mass Effect. But it's everywhere! Forums, trailers, demos, previews, countdowns, everything! I can't stand it! I hate it when this happens! I just want to isolate myself from all of it, play the game without having to hear what anyone else has to say, then maybe talking about it. I'm getting tired of it before it's even been released.
And ... the point I was really trying to make, though don't ask how the two are connected, is that I'm looking for an actually good game to keep me going until the actual release. I'm consindering Vanquish right now, because it's kinda cheap and I've heard a lot of good things about it, but ... I'm not sure.
And that's my problem.
Edit: I broke the 200 page mark! Also, the two games I'm considering right now are Vanquish and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Well, the former is apparently a standard-length modern shooter ( though I hear people say very good things about it ), the latter supposedly over 20 hours long. I guess I know which I'll be getting. Assuming I can get my hands on it.
