Time to break out your flightsticks, people. Still over a month away, but fast approaching, a little game called Darkstar One is scheduled for release on August 14th. We haven’t been getting many space flight action games in recent years, so if you yearn for a new Wing Commander or Freelancer, Darkstar One is shaping up to be the next goldenboy. And it looks gorgeous. There’s a demo out, so there’s no need to take my word for it.
Speaking of which, I’ve noticed that this summer has been lacking a certain… zombie element to it. Fortunately, Dead Rising is also coming in August, to remedy that affliction. Some of you may recall me talking about it after E3, and the game remains near the top of my ‘most anticipated games’ list for this year. So enough with this July bullshit. Bring on August already.
Actually, it’s not all that bad. Prey is dropping next week. Dark, claustrophobic corridors with ugly, UGLY creatures waiting to pop out at every turn. Why I subject myself to games like that, I don’t know. I never finished Doom 3 because I didn’t have the nerves for it.
Though maybe if I didn’t always force myself to play in the middle of the night, with all the lights off…
