The trouble is that I, well, like to play videogames, and I never turn down demos, even of games I have no intention of purchasing. This is a mechanical, largely automatic act. But I keep grabbing demos that have some umami, an inescapable flavor-taste that I enjoy far more than I ever intended to, and so these games must join the others on the heap.
We've only mentioned the big releases here - we haven't gone into portable or indie titles, where there are additional joys to be had. And by joys, I mean impossible choices. We chose to crack the month into discrete sectors, and then break down into task-oriented action cabals. I pray it is enough.
