Short Wave Gamin #1: I Buy Too Many Games

Since Halo: Reach has come out I’ve amassed a collection of games that will last me well beyond the end of the year, but I haven’t stopped purchasing them and I don’t play on stopping either. I haven’t written about any of them yet but I plan on writing about all of them (sorry everyone). First there was Reach, then NHL 11 & Spider Man: Shattered Dimensions, oh yeah BlazBlu: Calamity Trigger and Death Spank: Thongs of Virtue before all of those, then there was also Castlevania: Lords of Shadows, Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, L4D: The Sacrifice DLC, Breath of Death VII, Comic Jumper, Sonic 4 Episode 1… I think that’s it. However, I’ve already preordered Fallout: New Vegas from amazon (with my $20 credit from Reach, score!), and I plan on downloading Costume Quest on the xbox market place, Kirby’s Epic Yarn on Sunday is a must, I’m hearing great things about Vanquish, I might see if there’s a midnight sale for the Sly Cooper Collection…I need to stop. What I need, most of all, is to sit down and play the games. I don’t have as much time as I used to, so it makes it more difficult. A few years ago I would have been ripping through these games, but not so much any more. Is that growing up? No, it’s just spending too much on games and not being level headed enough to say, “no” everyone once in a while. Actually, it sounds more like regression.
