The Current Gen Blues
This article is more of a reflection on the current status of the gaming industry and what it has been delivering. Maybe it's just my taste in games or the fact that I have seen way to many delays over the past few months and years, but right the industry is killing me.
While I sit here waiting for games like Kingdom Hearts 2, Final Fantasy XII, and Twilight Princess; I find myself overly bored and disappointed with what is currently out. In the wake of the new Xbox 360 it would seem a lot of developers have put more effort into preparing games for the new consoles rather than providing quality material for the still very large current generation gamers. Maybe it's just me but there was less than a million Xbox 360s sold so it's a wonder to me why the gaming companies have started to shift focus.
Despite all this there is one game that looks to hold me off until games like KH2 land at my local gaming shop and that is the title Black. As if you haven't heard me talk about this title enough I am again. This game looks so good in every meaning of the word. The graphics and gameplay look way above par for anything ever seen on a ps2 or xbox, and not only that but the developers are the same people that bought us games like burnout, so you know the fun factor and quality of gameplay is going to be off the scale. But other than that and and the few games that everyone has on there preorder accounts at EB there isn't much going on in the gaming side of the industry.
