Also this week: Thomas Was Alone, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Suikoden: Tierkreis, The Last Door, Rex Rocket, and our love for all-things Marc Maron.

I wasn’t being serious. LOL. You would have to be on drugs to think Haze was a good game. Worst game I ever played and I was a little embarrassed that I wanted the game in the first place. Since some of you guys like JRPGs, you might like Eternal Sonata or Resonance of Fate.
Thanks for clearing that up! I remember playing Haze briefly but I definitely didn’t finish it. So horrible.
No problem. I remember asking myself if I was high when I bought Haze because the game was that bad. I didn’t even finish the game either. Next time, I read reviews before buying games!
I think Nintendo dropping their press conference is actually pretty shrewd. The spectacle of big E3 conferences is fun for enthusiast gamers, but that’s mostly it. Hopefully their new strategy lets them put out a more focused presentation for the press, while the fans continue to eat up their Nintendo Directs. Nintendo’s recent E3 conferences have been filled with too many cringe-worthy moments, anyway—obviously that wasn’t working too well for them, so why not try a new approach?
Good point but they better be ready to say hey here are the AAA titles for the Wii U and here’s a release date….or the Wii U is going to continue to sell poorly
Should Nintendo really focus on the 3DS instead?
Yeah, definitely. At least there’s a clear reason for optimism there. Accentuate the positive!
I’m pumped for GTA V, who’s going to pre-order?
I’ve been pre-ordered since November 20, 2011!
