The issue with having too many good games to play


Posted by: Jake Valentine

Sometime last month, an e-mail appeared in my inbox asking if anyone was interested in reviewing Divinity Dragon Commander. Since I’ve heard good things about the game, I jumped on the chance to play through it. However, some technical issues with the code I was given prevented my chances at first.

Those issues are a thing of the past, yet there still isn’t a review pending. I promise I have a super awesome reason why: Games happened.

Memoria came across my desk and turned out to be an excellent adventure game. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn came next and, oh look, there goes all of my free time. Damnit, Square Enix, you just had to make a highly enjoyable MMO, didn’t you? Next up was the beginning of the holiday season. You read that right; Madden NFL 25 is enjoyable enough (despite my issues and complaints with the game), Rayman Legends is everything I wanted it to be, and Divekick is absolutely fantastic. People wouldn’t shut up about Shin Megami Tensei IV, and now that I’ve picked up the game I can understand why.

I think you get my point, right?


This game... THIS GAME!

The immediate future is just as bad: Grand Theft Auto V hits soon, The Elder Scrolls Anthology is waiting to be installed, I still have yet to touch Pikmin 3, and SimCity becomes more and more like the game it should have been at release with each update. Oh, and I haven’t even had the time to squeeze in any Dota 2 matches either.

Then of course there’s the fact that I’m no longer able to pick up Diablo III for consoles, NHL 14 is calling my name, I hope I’ll find time for The Wonderful 101, I’m still eagerly awaiting a beta key for Hearthstone

You’re definitely getting the point now, right?

There's a hell of a lot of good games currently available to play, and we’ve just barely passed Labor Day. There are two consoles launching in two months. Nintendo’s money-printing franchise debuts on the 3DS in October with Pokémon X and Y. There are still dozens of games I picked up during the Steam Summer Sale that I haven’t touched.

Oh crap, that reminds me: There are a lot of indie games I need to play still.

If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to boot up Divinity Dragon Commander while I figure out how to stay awake for 20 hours each day.

All I ask for in return is a hug. I like hugs.
