Part of why I read reviews is to decide whether or not I should play/buy a game. Games cost money and with a regular 9-6 job my time is limited in what I can play. I have to make that count. Also, I like reading reviews! If I’m going to play a game from start to finish and then talk about it, I should also post my own formal review of it. Makes sense, right? But what makes Read on…
It’s always nice to have a “first” as a gamer. First console, first game, first game beaten etc. I’m coming up on a gaming “first”- first multi-platform game. This September when Borderlands 2 releases it’ll be the first time I get to decide which console I want to get it for.
Growing up, I couldn’t afford having more than one console- I had a Sega Genesis and a 90mhz Micron PC (yes, ninety megahertz) but computer games weren’t really multi-platform and that beast couldn’t really handle much. A second console was too much money and my parents thought I played enough video games as it was. And yeah, they pretty much were the boss of me.
Fast forward 20 years. I was finally able to afford a PS3 last December (already had an Xbox 360) and my platform horizons were doubled. With the fall release of Borderlands 2 I’ll get to decide which console I want to play it on. Over the couple months I’ll be blogging about my decision- the factors going into it, which way I’m leaning and where I plan on pre-ordering the game (which may be a tough decision all the same).
You getting Borderlands 2? Let me know what console you’re getting it for and why in the comments. Help me decide!
