This is a dilemma that a lot of PS3 gamers now face including myself. I mean the time suckers that we thought those two titles were going to be, well they didn’t turn out to be but all is not lost. These are lean times for us folks but we can make it through if we submerge ourselves into a dizzing array of lower quality titles, for now it looks like we will have to substitute quantity for quality.
So first off is the title that most of you are probably online playing right now, Battlefield: Bad Company. BBC is a whole lot of fun and if done right can suck up at least a day and a half of time. I mean as far as FPS’s go its not Call of Duty 4, but compared to other FPS’s that have come out this year that I expected to be better, BBC kicks butt I mean can anyone say Haze :(.
Then there is the title that the rest of you are waiting to drop tomorrow or today depending on where you are and that is Sid Meiers Civilization Revolution. Civ Rev is the tremendously popular PC game’s first port over to a next gen console. The game is a strategy turn based game that allows you to choose a civilization and then embark on a race to see who can advance the fastest. There are several ways to win, you can go for the dominanation win and bully your way to victory or you can choose to cultivate culture in your society through the accumlation of great people and building wonders. If played with some smarts, this game could suck up a decent amount of time for us gamers and I for one already have it on reserve.
Then there is the next huge title that everyone is waiting for, Soul Calibur IV which drops on the 22nd of this month. SC has a huge following and the high points in the franchise have been really high while the low points have just been terrible. From reports that I have seen it seems that a new console has blown new life into this franchise and a move to the PS3 may be just what the doctor ordered.
After that comes an oldie but a goodie in NCAA Football 2009. This perennial powerhouse title is back and of course looks better than ever. This year it seems that the folks at EA put a lot of time into the small details and nuances of the game that the hardcore fans will appreciate. They also have the addition of Online Dynasty so you can go head to head with your friends for the same top recruits at the end of the season. With most gamers just dying for thier football fix after 5 months of going cold turkey (cause no one really counts the AFL) NCAA Football 2009 is a must have.
But that’s just me folks, any titles that you have found worth playing that you would recommend to the rest of us? We are all ears.
