The summer is most traditionally gaming's downtime. When all the 'wee lad's and lasses go off to enjoy swimming, and bee stings, and sweating their foolish asses off. I hate the summer ... because I hate bee stings, and sweating, and not playing good, new games. BUT ... this summer kind of rocks ?!?

XBOX 360

May 23 - Rockstar Presents: Table Tennis
May 30 - Hitman: Blood Money
July 05 - The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth 2
July 10 - Prey
July 11 - Chromehounds
August 08 - Bomberman: Act Zero
August 08 - Dead Rising
August 15 - Ninety-Nine Nights

June 13 - Street Fighter Alpha Anthology
August 22 - Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII
August 29 - Disgaea 2

June 26 - Titan Quest

So, if I've listed it there, I genuinely think it has a shot at being a pretty good game. Some of these titles I'll be snagging right away, and others I'm just pretty interested in. Rockstar Table Tennis is a member of the latter. I *HATE* most sports games, but Table Tennis actually looks pretty intriguing. Launching at 39.99 also sky-rocketed it's buyability factor in my book. As far as other games on my summer release calender ... LOTR looked awesome on PC, and I think I'd like to say I owned one of the first amazingly detailed strategy games on console. Ninety-Nine Nights, Disgaea 2, and Dirge of Cerberus are pretty much leading the pack as *must-buys* for me. So summer gaming doesn't suck much choad this time arround, at least not on the 360 that is. PS2 seems slow as always, and well the Cube is dead kids. Super Paper Mario is like it's farewell song. The only real problem I see with my list is ... I can't buy all those games, and still save for the Wii/Xbox 360 Autumn of amazing release greatness.

Other than the games coming out ... In the last few weeks I've purchased:

Super Smash Bros.
Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes
Super Mario Sunshine
The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker
Halo 2: Collectors Edition

It's kind of like catching up with the systems I never cared about before.

... I never post without hot, steamy pictures ....
