Quick video game note  
For anyone who hasn't noticed or been told about it already, Amazon's Gold Box deals today are all PS3 related. The daily deal is Heavy Rain, they did Madden earlier (i'm so sorry i missed out on that one =P) and they're doing Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions currently, which i'm vaguely interested in, but even at 25% off a $60 game is really expensive. Hopefully later today they'll do some games that are either cheaper or more appealing to my particular interests.


Crap! I thought quite a bit about getting the 1:00 deal, Transformers: War for Cybertron for $45, but even at 25% off that was still a little expensive, and i figured there might be a better deal later. In particular i was looking at the 3:00, "Ready yourself for an epic, retro adventure." Turns out i was correct when i predicted it would be 3D Dot Game Heroes. And it was 50% off for $20! However what i did _not_ predict was that it would already be sold out less than 9 minutes after 3:00 =P

*sigh* Well i'm not really interested in getting what is probably Red Alert 3 ("Battle Soviet forces in an alternate time dimension,") not for the PS3 at least, and i'm almost certainly not interested in "Fooore!" but i _might_ be interested in "Power up your racing experience." That is, if it turns out to be Mod Nation Racers. However i expect that if that is in fact what it will be that the description would be a bit more recognizable =/

I was tempted by Transformers - I actually quite liked the PS2 (or was it PS1? Pre-movie anyway) Transformers game a I have, which was ostensibly part of the dumb Minicons continuity but was a fun action game. But my plate's just too full this fall to spend even $45 on "maybe" games. Same deal for the Spiderman one. 3D Dot Game Heroes I actually bought at launch. It's a great concept, middling execution. Only got a little ways into it before it got pushed aside for other things, though I intend to give it another go if/when my schedule clears up.

In case you're curious about my overbooked gaming schedule:
- Still need to finish FFXIII (at beginning of Ch. 12)
- Still playing DQIX, 137 hours in....
- Just got the new Professor Layton, about 1/4 done.
- 3DDGH on the back-burner..
- Castlevania Lords of Shadow, Oct 5 - gonna wiat for gameplay reviews
- Four Warriors of Light, Oct 5 - ditto, will probably wait 'til later anyway
- Super Scribblenauts, Oct 12 - will probably wait for a price drop
- Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Nov 16 - will see how the single-player is
- Little Big Planet 2, also Nov 16 - oh god, not again, how will I have time for this...
- Dance Dance Revolution PS3, Nov - fortunately this one I'm counting in the "exercise" time/budget instead of "game"

... so you can see why I'm not really in the market for further temptations. -_-

Oh, and farther in the future:
Ico/SotC HD collection (spring)
The Last Guardian (next fall)
Ni no Kuni (both PS3 and NDS, sometime next year probably)

Oy. I'm also kind of hoping FF14 turns out not so great so I'm not tempted. Lord knows I don't really need an MMORPG in this list.
