I would have liked to play Soul Sacrifice, the Vita’s new action-RPG thingy, but alas, I don’t see many releases on the horizon for the handheld and I wanted to make some cash while there was cash to be made. Sorry Soul Sacrifice, I hope people like you.
Far Cry 3 continues to impress, mostly for all of the brainless mayhem but occasionally for being able to take out an entire outpost by letting a tiger out of a cage and having it do all of the hard work for me. Funny story: I warped to a completed outpost, heard a tiger growl, went outside and promptly got mauled to death. The tiger giveth and the tiger taketh away. That being said, I’m all in for Blood Dragon so yeah, Ubisoft, go on with your bad self.
If cyber dinosaurs and self mutilation isn’t your thing, Heroes of Might and Magic VI gets the Shades of Darkness expansion, Ragnorak Online gets a sequel in the unoriginally yet effectively titled Ragnorak Online 2 and those that missed out on Deadly Premonition the first time around can play The Director’s Cut. I’d like to play that last one but I have a feeling I won’t get it. That seems to be going around a lot lately. The PC also plays home to Strike Suit Infinity this week, for all of your space suit clad, leaderboard climbing, needs, Expeditions: Conquistador releases for all of your new world pillaging needs, TrackMania 2 hits the stadium and Zeno Clash 2 continues, uh, zeno-clashing.
