Preordered Riders of Rohan ages ago, but I dunno when I'm going to muster the enthusiasm to play it. Right now I'm busy with XCOM anyway, and I've got to finish Resident Evil 6 as well as purchase Dishonored when I get the chance.

007 Legends snuck up on me. I'll take a closer look at that one.

Everything is a maybe this week.  I'm interested in the Silent Hill Vita game, but, as always, reviews and impressions are a must for that series.

I'm hoping 007 Legends is good, but it seems too much to cram into a coherent game.

The most likely choice for me this week is The Unfinished Swan which is coming to PSN for PS+ subscribers.

EDIT: And Eurogamer just gave a lukewarm 6/10 to Unfinished Swan, saying it's sometimes seems to be weird just to be weird.  Sounds pretentious, so I'm probably out.

Crusader Kings II: Legacy of Rome and 007 Legends (360) will get passing glances, but that's about it.

I enjoyed the demo of Silent Hill on Vita.  Certainly not a Silent Hill game, but was a fun little game in and of itself.  Might pick that up since there isn't anything else this week.

I thought about Doom 3 BFG edition, but I'm not sure I can go back to that style of gameplay right now.

But...but...you can have your flashlight on and aim & shoot at the smae time now! Seriously, what more could you want?  Tongue

I‘ll read some reviews on 007 Legends, but I doubt I‘ll buy it, so it looks like nothin for me.

wait,what have i missed?,isn't Doom gameplay pretty much like all the Halo's and CODs out there

I know this is a rehash of a last gen game,but I still didn't think the gameplay was much different

after Dishonored I don't think I can go back to 'oh look, a piece of armor in the middle of the room!  I wonder what is going to happen when I grab it?  WARBARGLE OH NOEZ MONSTERS! oh the humanity....' any time soon.

Son of a...

I was trying to buy Legacy of Rome for Crusader Kings II and I forgot that earlier I had added Doom 3 BFG to my cart in order to see if there were any additional savings for having the originals through Steam (I got them years ago cheap during a sale). 

...and you know where this goes. 

Ah well...I know they won't accept my stupidity as a reason for a refund.  I guess it could've been worse.  I could have jokingly put the Game of Thrones games in there too.   icon_frown

Picked this up as well as Dokuro on Vita.

Also, I guess Unfinished Swan is available for purchase for PS Plus members today, so will probably get that as well.

Let me know what you think of Silent Hill and Dokuro.  I'm curious about both.

Most other reviews have like Unfinished Swan, so I'll be getting that a little later today.

been hearing a lot of bad things about it now,especially been hearing about the very long loading times

and apparently if you install the 360 version to HDD,you can not access Doom 1 and 2 for some reason
