I have been away from my blog post over the last few weeks, and being in the middle of my personal X-mas (E3) I really should be more focused on those events. Instead I am going to talk about a couple of the cheap, cheap games I saw on my excursion to the mall last week.
While rooting through a discount bin at my local Wal-Mart I uncovered this little gem. While it is a brand new title, it also comes in at under $20 in price. Raiden Fighters Aces is a great package for old-school ‘shumps’ fans. The disc contains 3 full games in the series as well as a bevy of options to tailor your experience to your liking. Being under $20 and in the mood to buy a game I thought why not give this game a try. While I just spent one evening with it so far, it is a good little experience. And with most XBLA titles of the same calibre being worth up to 1,200 points each, RFA is a great value. So if you are in the mood for something a little different, why not test your reflexes with this ‘shump’ package.
Same night as I found the above I went into the EB in the same mall as was the Wal-Mart. In their I found Condemned 2: Bloodshot on sale for $15! What a steal! I love both Condemned games and the fact that a year later this game is only fetching $15 is a crime. If you have not had the pleasure of playing either game and are interested in survival horror or perhaps an FPS with a different hook, C2 is the game you have to play. At that price I should have almost bought a second copy! In all seriousness this is a fantastic game.
From what I have seen at E3 though I am going to have so many games to play this Fall that it will make my head spin. Owning an Xbox console is kin of like Wrestlemania, every year it is the best ever, except in the case of the 360, it is.
