I hate it when this happens. I’m looking to pick up a few new games for my upcoming birthday but I don’t think I can afford it. There are eight games in total to consider: Far Cry 2, Sonic Generations, Rayman Origins, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Tales of Vesperia, Mass Effect, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, and Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.
I’ve been wanting to pick up Far Cry 2 since last year. I thought I would get it last Christmas but it didn’t work out that way. Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing is another title I’ve wanted for sometime now. I recently tried the Rayman Origins demo and I rented Sonic Generations and I fell in love with both games. After reviewing BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend, I basically want to buy any game of the series and I figure to start at the beginning. I adore Street Fighter and its strange I don’t own one of the new series. I had Street Fighter IV when it first came out but that doesn’t make sense now and so I’m going for the Arcade Edition. I’ve been itching to play a good JRPG and although not conventional, Tales of Vesperia will satisfy that. Finally, I think I should finally dive into the Mass Effect series. I rented the first one and enjoyed it after a few hours of playing but returned it back to get (ironically) Tales of Vesperia. I want to carry my character throughout the whole series so I’m starting with the first.
Unfortunately, this will all run me almost $200. I’m not sure if I’ll have that much to spend on games (plus my hesitance to spend that much on games because I have to be an “adult” and save for “just in case.”) So what do you guys think? What’s gotta go?
