What a difference a year makes, huh? I have been gone from here for a while, and that is my own fault, my friends. You see, a busy work and personal life got in the way of me doing something I grew to enjoy greatly! And that's coming here and running my mouth, only to have you all read it! Now I won't bore you with all the details that make no mind of anything not game related, and we'll just pick this up right where I left off.
In my last post, I was going on about the PlayStation 3. A system that is and was long on promise, but had yet to get the killer apps it needed to make it a mainstay, at least in my house. Well allow me to update you on that little situation. With my tax return this year, I went down to Sears and bought one. And I must say for the price I paid earlier this year, something about it just made me wonder why I bothered. And in the time since, I have seen a few games come along that actually made me glad I did pony up the cash wad to pay for it.
One such game would have to be Uncharted. Now I realize it wasn't the most beloved title in the PS3 library, but I have always been a sucker for Tomb Raider ****gameplay. And in this case, they didn't try to reinvent the wheel or add some crazy nuances to it to make it stand out. They went with a tried and true formula, and I loved it!
Another title I was all too happy to add to my library was a game that I believe launched with the system. You have no idea how big of a fan I have always been for the Ridge Racer games. The last few I have played were awesome. And Ridge Racer 7, which was a PS3 exclusive, was no different! The only complaint I had was finding a copy of the dratted thing. Not that it was Namco's fault, as it had been out a while when I went looking for it. But Jesus H. Morales, it took more than one search engine and several eBay trips only to find it buried in the bargain bin at a Wal-Mart! One of the best PS3 purchases I ever made!
In short, there were several good titles to come out for the PS3 since my last post. With Home coming out before we all grow old and MGS4 now out, I really have to change my tune about the PS3. I see the potential now where once I did not. If you all can recommend some more exclusives for this system, please do! I'm always looking for something new!
And by the way, now that life has found a way of straightening itself out, I feel it safe to say I'm back! Hope ya missed me! :D
