>Release Calendar: Recession-Proof Economy edition

>I don’t mean to scare you to death, but we’re in the middle of an economic shitstorm right now and the videogame release calendar just went from “zero” to “how will I eat?”

This is just the next 5 weeks, starting right now:

Week of 2/14

  • GTA 4: Lost and Damned DLC (which I can’t play b/c my 360 is busted! GAAAAH)
  • Street Fighter 4
  • Noby Noby Boy

Week of 2/22

  • Killzone 2
  • Star Ocean (360) – I’m intrigued, but I can wait
  • Dead Rising (Wii) – maybe I’ll get this version and actually finish the damned thing
  • Puzzle Quest Galactrix – or I could just play this for the next year

Week of 3/1

  • Halo Wars – I don’t think there’s any way my 360 comes back in time for this
  • MLB09: The Show – I’m not listing the 2K MLB game because it’s going to suck
  • HAWX – the demo was pretty awesome
  • Phantasy Star Portable (PSP) – any reason to dust off my PSP is noteworthy

Week of 3/8

  • Resident Evil 5

Week of 3/15

  • GTA: Chinatown Wars (DS)
  • Resistance (PSP)

After that, release dates become subject to rumor and speculation; still, though, this is enough to put a serious dent in anybody’s wallet. Good luck and godspeed.

>Well, that happened

>Fuck.

My 3rd 360 just died.

Not the dreaded 3 RROD; just 1, but none of the steps on xbox.com/support could help, and so I gotta send it back.

I guess this means I’ll be playing FF7 for a bit longer; it also means I have to avoid Lost and Damned spoilers like the plague.

Goddammit.
