Time to cut back.

I’ve set a new goal for 2009.  One I think is doable, however one which is probably going to push my power of control to breaking point.

For the remainder of 2009, I am only allowed to purchase 1 game for either my DS, PSP, XBox 360, PS3 or Wii each month.  So in total 12 games for the year accross all platforms.

I know this is going to be a tough call as I have struggled to get it down to 1 game a fortnight over the past few years.

My last 2 purchases for 2008 were Fallout 3 for the Playstation 3 and The Last Remnant for the Xbox 360.  I’m hoping my preference for Role Playing Games may help me out a little due to the length of most of the games in this genre.

I have no idea what my January purchase will be as yet, time to start thinking I suppose.

Let the games game begin.

It’s that time of the year again when gaming sites the world over start releasing their year end ‘best of’ lists for 2008.  As I was reading through a few of them I thought to myself why not compile a list of these links in the one place…and so this post was born.

As I’m a big fan of handheld gaming I’ve started with a few lists from a couple of portable gaming sites I frequent.

Pocketgamer

touchArcade

PALGN

Eurogamer

Metacritic

VideoGamer

GamePro

Gamasutra

I’ll be adding more sites to the list as they are released.  Feel free to notify me of any you may come across yourself.
