I'm surprised you hadn't gotten the new Deus Ex yet. XD How do you like it? I heard a lot of positive things when it came out.
How about the new version of Doom 3? Is it pretty much like we figured it would be, or is there something to be said for the changes they made?
Also, just curious about why you haven't bought any newer games in so long. Just haven't seen too much that interested you over the last 2 years? Or maybe you've been occupied with playing older games?
And, I think you could be wrong about that. You got Duke Nukem Forever in one of your previous blogs. That came out this year or last year, didn't it?
A while ago, I said I wasn't going to get any new games until I'd beaten the ones I have. I haven't quite beat everything I have, but I've caught up a lot.
More to the point, I see no reason to get games when they're released. The story in Deus Ex isn't going anywhere. It doesn't get stale or better or worse with age. The game is what it is, whether I spend $60 or $15 on it. There's no multiplayer, so I'm not missing out on the game having a community, and frankly, if a game is good online, it'll still have people playing it five years down the road. I'm not saying everyone should wait for a couple years before buying a game (like I often do), but people who buy games on Day 1 are paying to be beta testers. Console games have gone the way PC games went 15 years ago, where numerous patches are expected in the first month. So when I say the game doesn't get better or worse with age...actually...if you wait a month or two it gets better, come to think of it.
I did get Duke Nukem Forever in May (I think), but I got it for like six bucks. People who bought that on Day 1, the joke's on them.
