This post is dedicated to YouTube user: MrCalu24 whose upset mindless fanboyism inspired me to write this. Without people like you, I’d have no-one to upset on principle by telling the truth about over-rated pablum. Thank you.
Actually, the real reason I was tempted to skip this post this year is that I haven’t had the opportunity to play several of the few big releases that haven’t been postponed to next year. No Dishonoured, no Xcom, no Assassin’s Creed III. The reason for this is switching from buying games and then re-selling them to renting them from LoveFilm. The advantage of LoveFilm is the volume of games I can play and review, the disadvantage is that it is harder to get the more up to date games. I do also game on my PC of course, but due to injury it has been easier to simply use the PS3. So instead of this being a Game of the Year style article concentrating on new games, its going to be a simple round-up of games I’ve played and what I thought of them. Luckily the title lets me do either – which is handy.
Let us (EAT LETTUCE!) start at the beginning.
