Unintentional avoidance

There really isn't much to say about Just Cause 2. It is leagues better than the first game was, is nice and sand boxy, and will fill the time between now and when the next game arrives. It is also several months old, so everyone who wants it play it probably already has, me being the only exception.

It is interesting to look at my friends list and see just about everyone playing Halo. It reaches right across fans of disparate genres, pulling them together into a single frantic orgy of tea bagging and high explosives. I would join them, albeit briefly, but my monies are allocated to a new (bad) Guitar Hero, a new (good) DJ Hero and a new plastic guitar that frightens me so much that I must own it. Oh, and the good music game that goes with it. It is fun to mock Halo, but it is also foolish. Now that the series is officially done I would love to see Bungie release some multi-platform masterpiece in a completely separate universe in a totally different genre. These talented people have been a slave to the Master Chief for an eternity. I long to see what else they are capable of.

I just hope they don't end up like Rare.
