Purgatory

Perhaps I've been reading a bit too much Penny Arcade...
F.E.A.R. 3 release date. Check.

Pre-order ticket. Check.

...so where the hell is my F.E.A.R. 3?!

As it turns out, my local games shop (plural) weren't getting the game in 'till Wednesday (29th). So that sucked. I planned my entire holiday schedual around getting the game.

...it's now Thursday (30th), and I STILL don't have the game in my hands. Granted though, this is 'cause I'm a  two hour drive away from my EB Games store as we speak.

So that sucks. I won't be picking the game up until (at least) Monday.

Still, from all that I've heard about it, it looks and sounds great. Mixed reviews across the board-some love Co-op over single player. Some don't. Some find it scary. Some don't. And that's fine.

I'm probably the last person that should ever be reviewing F.E.A.R. 3...but dammit I'm going to do it anyway...assuming I ever get my hands on the game.

EDIT: ...ok, it's been three months and I haven't actually bothered reviewing the game. Here's the gist: gameplay good, story ok unless you've never played F.E.A.R. before. Graphics; meh, sound; amazing, replayability; baby, this game was MADE to be replayable. Final score: 7.5/10.



So yeah...a few things have changed since I last posted...couple of new games came out, Daget got a new helmet...Allie grew about 8 years older in the space of a month...
So that's cool.
