How often do you stop a game for a while, whether it be days or weeks or month, and when you go back to it you’re in the middle of an epic battle and the only thing you can do is run and run and run until you can get used to the surroundings? That’s what happened to me the other night when I put Skyrim in the other night. What prompted me to start playing again, other than wanting to finish the main campaign, is the Kinect voice integration that is coming soon.
To my future neighbors: I apologize now for all the Fus Ro Dahs you will hear in your future.
The below games are the few releases worth nothing. There’s a couple others coming out for the 3DS, but none of the websites can agree on when it will be released so if you’re looking for Myst 3D, keep an eye out. It might come next week, or in July. You know. That’s not much of a difference, right?
