Before this month I was very proud of myself I didn’t buy a single new release game for six months proceedings - my purchase of a Nintendo Switch in January likely contributed to that. Things were looking good I may have actually broken my Day One Addiction, the time of dropping $90.00 plus on a game (Canadian MSRP’s and sales taxes suck) seemed to be over - except for Nintendo games...

However September was always looming like a dark cloud over the horizon. Ready to rain down huge games to suck me in and never let me go. I thought though “I’ll only buy two” Spider-Man and Valkyria Chronicles 4 and wait for the rest for Christmas. Except... I’ve now bought Dragon Quest XI after just about polishing off Spider Man and have already budgeted in VC4. I haven’t even budgeted food...

The worst part is this isn’t over with a ton of rereleases and January to March looking just as bad. My wallet is going to be crying for a long long time yet. Though I have been saving some money (no taxes) buy buying digital so that takes a bit of the sting off...

For Today’s Suggested Topic(s). Answers to One, All, Some, or None will do:

  • Are you indulging in the season of awesome game releases with me or being smart and waiting for a sale?
  • Is anyone else playing Dragon Quest XI and loving the fact this is a mid-90's RPG with a modern coat of paint?
  • What is the weather like in your neck of the woods? Anyone effected by the monster storms that are hititng a bunch of places like the Carolina’s and Hong Kong.
  • Or just Talk Amongst Yourselves!
