Games, games & more games

gah so many games, aahhhhhhh
It's that time of year again, when there are more quality (I'm talking really good) games out that gamers know what to do with. You may be frustrated, hopefully not at the point of as the dude above, but it's one of those good frustrations. With still playing Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, running and gunning in Borderlands 2, jumping on briefly to get my dailies in Guild Wars 2 and precision driving the turns in Forza Motorsport 4 I feel like my free time is being tugged back and forth with each game (Oh I haven't forgotten you Skyrim or Amular either). Like Donkey from Shrek, Oh oh pick me - Oh play me. 

It seems not only are retail games trying to get your attention but they're trying to keep it with more and more DLC planned or released for said games. We have Halo 4 coming around the corner and it's already been announced there will be a season of co-operative missions that will be keeping your attention for a while. That doesn't mention all of the DLC we've grown to love from Bioware with Mass Effect 3's multiplayer and single player experiences. Neither does it mention the 4 planned DLC campaigns heading for Borderlands 2. Nor does it mention the fact that DLC for an arcade game that came out a long while, A World of Keflings, just came out and was exceptionally good.
team up you say, why not

With not even getting into Dishonored, X-Com, nor Torchlight 2, the backlog is starting to pile up again. Time to get ready for the holidays and more importantly all the great games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (if you're still supporting CoD that is), Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 3, End of Nations, Tomb Raider...!
So many games, insane you say?

Generals 2 is Dead to Me, C&C is Gone

Wow, news that there will be no single player for Generals 2 and that the biggest change, aside from that mind you, is that the game will be known as a free to play Command & Conquer game, a service revisiting all the C&C universes like Red Alert and Tiberium Wars. You got to be kidding me, how can free to play work with competitive RTS games? More importantly though what made every C&C game I've played stellar was the story. Unfortunately they botched the story of the Tiberium universe having it conclude with C&C 4. Yeah nobody played C&C 4 because it was a horrible mistake, some would say abomination. Yet this looks to be yet another horrible mistake. Farewell C&C, your legacy only lives on in my childhood memories. RTS Gamer for life.
