So it’s roughly a month since I blogged last about my Pile of Shame. It’s actually taken me that time to complete Assassin’s Creed 2. I really enjoyed it so I took my time. I’ve got about 835 points in it which will do me fine. I don’t fancy going after the remaining few so onto the next game in the pile.

The pile…well the pile hasn’t gone quite as well as it could have. I did a very good job of resisting games purchases throughout January and much of February. Then I succumbed.

My pile of shame before consisted of 8 games –

Assassin’s Creed 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Deadly Premonition, Fallout: New Vegas, Halo Reach, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. 8 games.

Now I find myself with a pile of 8 games again –

Battlefield Bad Company 2, Bulletstorm, Dead Space 2 (yes I double dipped after reviewing it for the PS3), Deadly Premonition, Fallout: New Vegas, Halo Reach, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

Still, at least I’m at the same number I suppose! The thing is, Dragon Age 2 will arrive later this week (the first game I’ve pre-ordered in a long, long time).

I’m currently working my way through Bulletstorm after a spontaneous purchase earlier this week (I had it pre-ordered, cancelled it, then bought it anyway). It’s good, mindless fun. It’s also a game that I can understand why people dislike it but I can also appreciate why others love it. I’m somewhere in between. I know that it’ll never be a highlight of the year for me but it scratches an itch I guess.

I was halfway through Dead Space 2 beforehand too so that won’t take long.

I certainly won’t rush any game but it’d be nice to clear another title’s single player in time for Dragon Age 2.
