What'd You Get? - Burning In Is Fun Edition

Well, it's officially fall now, Dtoid community. For those of us in the colder parts of the world, it means things are about to get a bit more chilly, a bit more snowy and we'll be waiting another 6 months until it truly gets warm again. That, or you could just take a trip somewhere warm by smuggling yourself in the back of an 18-wheeler and riding down to Florida. You know, because it's cheaper to do that than fly on an airplane. Maybe not legal, but definitely cheaper. And hey, you don't have to worry about losing your luggage, either!

But fall also means that the avalanche of games we've all been waiting for is upon us, just in time for the holiday season. Or what's going to be left of the holiday season after the global economy imploded. Hell, I might just be lucky to get coal fro Christmas this year so I can burn it to keep myself warm.

This week, I did happen to get one game before the inevitable avalanche of titles:

Of course, the game is kinda mostly known for this:

But I'll let you know how it actually plays on the PC the more I get into it. Like all games I play, I'm going into this with an open mind and a hopeful thought that this game won't disappoint. I don't expect it to be a <i>Halo</i> killer, but as long as it's fun, that's what matters.

So I've got Section 8 to play with this week, Dtoid crew. What'd all of you get?

About Brian Szabelskione of us since 12:13 PM on 02.11.2007

Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.

For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.

I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...

Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.

Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.
