One of the bad things as a dedicated gamer, especially if you’re broke, is that you just can’t buy every new game release. Already spend my money for Deus Ex 3 one month ago, which I bought instead of Warhammer: Space Marine. Several months earlier I had this dilemma with Alice: Madness Returns and The Witcher 2, that concluded into me buying The Witcher 2. And now this madness returns as I need to wait again until I got a little bit more overflow of money again in my pockets for the next big purchase. Now I have once again two more games left behind that I wished to buy straight at release date. And the horror continues in the next months, which will make my life literally hell on earth again. With RAGE, Uncharted3 and The Elder Scrolls 5 get three new top titles in my book of “worthy games” released I just can’t buy yet. I’m just glad that I am not one of these gamers that need to buy every little mini or indy game released multiple times a month on steam or other networks or else I would be more broken than broke on money. Even though I purchased many games at GOGcom.
Anyways, it’s great to be a ’90s game enthusiast, simply because I have the chance to play a lot of good old video games from my childhood. To open my wall cabined that holds all my games and to browse through the almost endless old CD-cases is just amazing! Most of the games did I played already, some never or just for a short period. Others I began but never finished in my life. Especially the last kind of games in my cabined are my beloved ones, since several years later I have the chance to play these again and this time through to the end. This even applies to all the next generation games I bought and put into the cabinet. In some years I gonna start playing them and enjoying them more as I would today. I’m no fan of playing multiple hours of always the same boring online shooters like Call of Duty or Battlefield, neither of playing online co-op with people I met on youtube or twitter. I love to be nostalgic and to give old games a chance. Games I can play alone and games that can deliver a immerse storyline and gaming experience.
Well, what exactly did I play in the last months and weeks? I got finished and loved Deus Ex 3 and Dead Space 2 and if you seen my articles, my raptr tweets or some special uploads on my youtube channel, then you know that I was pretty addicted to the Thief series by Looking Glass Studios. I played the first game, one of the many I never finished in my life and loved it. I played the second game, the only one I finished years ago and then the third one. I got so hyped that I straight decided to capture a let’s play of Thief The Dark Projects, which will be uploaded as soon as my Diablo LP series is complete. Maybe I even decide to allow my youtube followers to pick the next LP with a poll, because I even play and capture StarWars Jedi Knight at the moment.
Lately, to be more specific yesterday, I just downloaded the Patch 2.0 for The Witcher 2 and I’m looking forward to see how much the game has changed with it to give it another go, because the game first felt wrong compared to the first part. This leads me to the last thought that I wish to put on this “short” article: It’s pretty silent on my blog lately after some reviews and new added video entries and I wish to write some more indept thoughts on Dead Space 2 and Witcher 2 in next weeks. So keep your eyes open for any update on my Twitter or Youtube.
