My Summer Decided

Atari 5200 Guy


I believe I have my summer gaming all figured out.  I plan to participate heavily in the forum's Pizza Party with what games I do have PLUS it will be nice to revisit Zelda again...a game I have not played in decades.

Just tonight Microsoft, for whatever reason, gave me a $5.00 gift card on my account.  I wondered what $5 could do and browse the 360 game store first to see if there was anything of interest there.  My nephew informed me of 360 games that were now free including Crackdown 2, a game that has been on my wish list for years.  The first one is free, too, after they gave it away as a first few Games with Gold feature.  So I already had that one.  Other free games were Supreme Commander 2 (already got from Games with Gold) and Too Human (never heard of it). While browsing for another $5 game I found out i owned Orcs Must Die but I don't ever remember owning that one. Still looking I almost got a game called Final Exam which looked similar to Streets of Rage.  Before I made a final decision I checked games I had pinned to my dashboard.  One game in particular I had been wanting to try out but I ended up buying it instead.  Atari's new Star Raiders.  On top of all that I now have ARK: Survival Evolved (thanks to those developers), Epic gave away the entire Bioshock Collection, Wolfenstein New Order, Maneater (you play as a shark!), and are giving away CMS 18 next week with some other game.  

So between the Squad Challenges on Atari I/O, new 360 games to play, new top notch PC games, I believe my Summer gaming has been decided.  This may also change as Epic gives more games away. I also play to explore the ST games I found interesting recently.

What are your gaming goals for this summer?  Are there any particular games you would finally like to obtain or beat that you have not been able to before?  Would love to hear about it.

I'm aware a substantial amount of time has passed since this post, but holy smokes, I have many hours into the Crackdown 1 and 2 games!  Did you manage to play through one or both of them last year?
Coincidentally, I played through Crackdown 3 for the first time last summer - which was overall in the same great spirit as its two predecessors!
