Remember this blog entry? Yeah that’s clearly not worked.
Actually it has….until tomorrow.
Tomorrow I’ll be buying Xenoblade Chronicles if I can find a copy (which seems to be not as easy as one would think as anyone who follows me on Twitter will have noticed today!).
Next Friday I’ll be buying Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
I have no excuse for Xenoblade Chronicles besides a sneaky suspicion that it’ll be a bugger to find in a few weeks time.
Deus Ex I’ve traded in a pile of games in order to buy it so it’s not actually costing me anything.
The pile of shame is still there too but it’s not quite as big. For one thing, I really couldn’t get into Dungeon Siege III or Alice: Madness Returns so they’re gone. I played half of Shadows of the Damned before realising that I was playing it for the sake of it and wasn’t that interested. Plus the trade in price was good. And Tiger Woods 12 is gone because it’s golf and I don’t like golf!
So yeah, partially failed but on the plus side, the pile is smaller. Swings and roundabouts and all that!
I’ve been working out the logistics for the Autumn based rush too. It’s scary. This is the potential list:
Gears of War 3 – The plan is to trade in some games for this. I’ve bought the two previous Gears games in my local Gamestation so I’ll probably do the same again this time round. Even went to a midnight launch of Gears of War 2 which made a change.
FIFA 12 and Forza 4 – Pondering asking for one or the other for my birthday. I’m fortunate that both my Mum and Aunt quite happily back my gaming habit and these both come out around my birthday. If not, these might have to be expendable as they should drop in price soon enough.
Batman: Arkham City – I’ll be finding money for this no matter what! Real must buy for me having loved Arkham Asylum so much. Originally I wanted the collector’s edition but it’s just so expensive for a fancy statue really.
Battlefield 3 – Another must buy. I might possibly trade in Gears 3 for this but we’ll see.
Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin’s Creed Revelations – I’ve got a feeling one or more of these will have to wait till Christmas. No set plan yet for how to acquire these. Other than hope. Annoyingly Gamestation don’t take hope in exchange for games.
It’s going to be an expensive few months.
