Why are we going to have another end of year glut?

So now that E3 is all done and dusted (and my only prediction was proven completely wrong), we can start looking forwards to some actual games coming out. Prototype, inFamouse and Punch Out have just hit, but apart from Batman: Arkham Asylum, the next few months looks pretty bare, which is fairly usual for the Summer months. But then once we get into October and November, the floodgates open again: Borderlands, Assassin's Creed 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Bioshock 2, Modern Warfare 2, Ghostbusters, DJ Hero..... it's another packed Autumn/Winter where I'm not going to be able to afford the games I want. I mean I want to get them, but rushing them out at the end of the year never makes sense to me. Look at Prototype: it was meant to be coming out at the end of last year, but a delay for some final polish and you've got the game coming out now with pretty much nothing competing with it (ok, apart from inFamous....).

I'm just hoping I can save up enough cash. I hope I can finish the games I've got before October comes around (I want to complete all Left 4 Dead campaigns on expert before November comes around. 3 to go.)

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007

Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.

Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.

You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.
