Waiting for the White Knight Verdict

I am strongly considering picking up White Knight Chronicles: International Edition, but I think for now I will have to live vicariously through the reviews, opinions, and blogs of others because my back catalog of games is just too full right now.

For RPGs alone, I have (in reverse order of length of ownership) Dragon Age: Origins, Demon’s Souls, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I picked up Dragon Age from Amazon as a Christmas present during the Thanksgiving sales, but I have not had a chance to open it yet. Demon’s Souls was an impulse purchase – I read some interesting opinions of the game and just had to preorder. Oblivion was one of my first three PS3 game purchases, along with F1 and the original Uncharted, but I have done little to explore Oblivion’s great depths and everything it has to offer.

This is where I get in trouble; building up a gaming library that sits idle collecting dust is an expensive endeavor, a waste of resources (i.e. my paycheck!). Even in the best of gaming times, when I am in a wonderful gaming zone, fully committed to quality time in front of the TV with a Dualshock in hand, along with enough free time to be somewhat carefree, my collection can often be insurmountable; I’ll never get my money’s worth or play everything. I know this is a pathetic and sad state of affairs, but it is sort of a sick form of addiction – the rush from getting a new game.

Here I sit staring at my shopping cart trying not to do the needful, while White Knight Chronicles: International Edition is calling.  Will I listen?

    man, you’re not alone! XDD I’m in the same situation. Oblivion, Uncharted2 and Heavy Rain collecting dust, however I was looking for info about WKC and came here and then read that, it made me laugh

  2. I wrote that about 6 weeks ago. Since then I have not finished WKC:I, have not started FFXIII, am just barely into Heavy Rain, and have only spent a few games with MLB 10. I suck!

    Hope you enjoy the site.
