On the road again…Shawn Drotar

With apologies to Willie Nelson, I’ll be traveling until late next week and won’t be posting until next Friday, October 16.

In the meantime, entertain yourselves with a few titles that release next Tuesday, namely Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which has “Game of the Year” written all over it. I’ve played the beta at two different points this year, and without playing the final version yet, I’ve seen enough to unconditionally recommend it. If you have a PlayStation 3, there’s absolutely no excuse not to add this one to your library.

For Xbox 360 gamers, Brutal Legend’s the one to watch. While it doesn’t seem as complete a package as Uncharted 2, its outlandish sense of humor - provided by creator Tim Schaefer - and Jack Black’s scenery-chewing (even as a voice actor) looks to make this game one of the more unique titles released this year. It’s also available for the PlayStation 3.

If you have a Wii and children, or just don’t mind acting like one, Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games should provide the standard Wii fare - more mini-game madness - with better quality than most, providing pick-up-and-play fun for the whole family. The title’s also available for the Nintendo DS, a boon to those who aren’t entirely comfortable with bobsledding by sitting on a Wii Balance Board.

As the month of October goes on, the list of top titles this fall keeps expanding. It’s an exciting time to be a gamer. Too bad about that whole economy thing that’s making it difficult for us to partake in all of it…

Save what pennies you can - we’ll talk about what else is coming down the pike to spend them on next Friday.
