Back in the Saddle
18 May, 2011
I’m happy to report that I’m officially back in the saddle after a brief hiatus I needed to take so my wife and I could move into our new home. My office is once again set up, but my recording equipment isn’t all in place. All in all, I’m at about 90% functionality.
I’m coming back at a hectic time and I have quite a few reviews in the backlog that I’m going to cover. Currently, I’m playing (and absolutely loving) The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Before I post my video review, I can assure you all, this game is getting a “worth buying” rating. If there was a higher rating that I could give it, I would. Maybe I’ll make a “worth buying twice” rating on it. So far, it is everything a sequel should be. But holy hell, the combat is difficult. I’m very glad I avoided as many previews for this game as I did. It is almost 100% unspoiled for me.
L.A. Noire is sitting on my desk, begging me to play it, but Eliot is covering that review. I’ll just be playing that one for the sheer joy of it.
I still need to play and review Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword. I did the preview, but shortly afterwards is when things finally started picking up. Patrick is wrapping up reviews for both Brink and Men of War: Assault Squad. Both Michael and Marcos are ready to fire up the JTV page and Gavin is getting his bags ready for E3.
All in all, despite the fact there is a summer lull coming to the game industry after E3, Elder-Geek.com will still be very busy.
We’re all getting excited for this year’s E3. I’ve got a few wild predictions up my sleeve (none of which will most likely come true). But what about all of you?
Let’s hear ‘em all right now! What are your BIG predictions for this year’s E3?
