It's almost even money across the board when it comes to how much gaming you all expect to do over the holiday season. I know that I certainly plan to play more this year than in previous years. I'm taking a full two weeks off this season to just relax and unwind from the year which I've never been able to do before. I'll be spending my gaming time with Rock Band 3, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Sonic Colors, GoldenEye 007, even more Just Cause 2 (believe it or not!), and a few other things that have been sitting around just waiting for some action. It'll be glorious! Ah, I love the holiday season.
Speaking of Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft has apparently decided not to give the franchise next year off after all, as it's planning another major release for 2011's holiday season. It's become one of many successful franchises that have to have an annual release whether it's justified or not. How do you feel about this practice? Do we have to have a new game from your favorite franchise every year? Let's hear your thoughts.
