Gaming in the summertime

The Swedish summer is about as reliable as a ten dollar Rolex on the bottom of the ocean. But it does provide us gamers with an alibi to engage in our favourite hobby. However, when the sun does show up on occasion I find it hard to play video games.

This summer has a few interesting games lined up for us so I don't quite know what to wish for in terms of weather. But there aren't too many of them that would keep me inside on a sunny day.

What I do know is that I'm still trying to take in everything that went on last week in Los Angeles. It was a very powerful showing from an industry determined not too let the current financial turmoil spoil its progress. The next 12-18 months will be some of the best in terms of games released in the history of the medium. I have no doubt of that. It's going to be hard to try and keep up with just the "must play" titles.

Personally I'm dying to play stuff like Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Brütal Legend, Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3: ODST, Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, Bioshock 2, Assassin's Creed II, Final Fantasy XIII, Borderlands, Starcraft II and well, there is just too many to mention them all. I just wished some of them would hit this summer already... cause I have a feeling there will be a lot of rainy days.
