Contemplating November 15th with not much games to play.
Okay, so the other day I wrote about how I was peer pressured into buying a next-generation console. I’ve started imagining how November 15th will turn out. I’ll be distracted at work as I constantly check Amazon’s website for delivery updates.
If it doesn’t come by the time I get home, you can count on me looking like this:
My PlayStation 4 bundle comes with Battlefield 4, but I’m not really into it so I might be trading it in for another game. However, after spending much time browsing through Amazon’s catalog, I realized that there’s not much games available for me to play at launch.
Sure, there’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag but I’m kind of burned out of the series since they’ve been coming out almost every year. Personally, none of the next-generation consoles really have anything groundbreaking at launch.
This brings me back years back when I first got my PlayStation 2. Honestly, I think I was stuck playing only one game for one full month. I forgot which game it was, but it was really boring. However, that was the only game I had so I the only to make it work was convince myself it was fun.
The games I really, really want to play will only only be released next spring. UFC, Watch Dogs, Infamous: Second Son, DriveClub and so much more. My worst fear is getting a game that will only be good for one playthrough. I’m not made of money, so I can probably only get two $60 games.
Right now, I’m thinking of getting Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag just because, Killzone: Shadowfall, or NBA 2K14. I can only get two so I have to choose wisely. The best bet for replayability though would have to be NBA 2K14 simply because of GM mode.
How can you not pre-order that game?
Sucks how I might have to switch to 2K after a decade of loyalty to EA’s Live series. Anyway, if I choose the wrong game then I’ll be stuck with a box sitting in my room. It sucks that two of the launch titles were delayed, but then again this is what I get for buying a console during launch.
