Wow, There are a Lot of Shows to Watch and Games to Play This Fall

I know Nat has been doing a list of “must see” shows of this Fall, but it really just hit me how much I have to keep up with in the coming months. TV-wise and video game-wise, this fall is I think the most stacked I’ve ever seen line-ups from either medium. And that’s not even considering all the movies I have to go see. Seriously, stopping and really writing this out, it’s almost overwhelming. But it’s an exciting time to be working in media, because there’s just so much damn good content out there. Here’s what’s on deck for me over the next few months:

TV – Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, Modern Family, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Community, New Girl, Terra Nova, Always Sunny, Archer (each week)

Games – Gears of War 3, Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Saints Row 3 and now Star Wars: The Old Republic. Not to mention maybe snagging a Diablo 3 beta key, and I wouldn’t rule out that could be out before the end of the year. Oh, I’m also trying to catch up on about 8 other PS3 titles I’ve missed over the years.

So yeah, that’s a LOT to get through, but it’s definitely an exciting prospect. I just hope I don’t burn out, as even though I love media, there can be too much of a good thing. With games in particular, I feel like exhaustion might set in as each is a big time commitment. Skyrim alone is 100+ hours, with the others being at least 10 or more apiece.

Why can’t they spread this stuff out more?

  1. For real… I can afford one game a month at $60 bucks and when you add in NBA 2K12 coming out next week it’s crazy. Why no one takes advantage of the summer months to release games I’ll never know. Saints Row would have been a blast to play through but now it probably gets put behind all those other games for me. My order will probably be NBA 2K12, Skyrim, MW3, Arkham City, SW:TOR. There’s just to much to play…

  2. Just finished the D3 Beta myself (took less than 2 hours), and have to say, after all my previous skepticisms (you might recall my long rant about Blizzard and their removal of PvP and general frustration with the company), that it was quite an enjoyable experience. I played a Demon Hunter, and likened it to the Ranger in Torchlight, which was the most fun I had in a dungeon crawler. Same basic ricochet shot and a lot of similar skills. I like how customizable your skill set is with skill slots instead of trees. Very polished, but not very demanding. I still hope they make PvP more prevalent endgame than previously promised, but they do have a Versus option after character select (though not availabe in Beta). Played around with all the characters (had the most fun with the Demon Hunter), and they all felt pretty unique and fun. I actually really enjoyed it and will probably pick it up when it comes out.

  3. I enjoy your Breaking Bad reviews, not that this site should and wants to become a review site, but the top five shows are fairly underwatched. (IMHO #1. Sons of Anarchy, #2 Justified, #3 Breaking Bad, #4 Dexter, #5 (Tie) True Blood/Fringe

    Would you be interested in receiving a review (to be posted on Unreality) of any of these within 24-36 hours of airing?

    Peace out,
    ZT
