Back from the grave, part two

Yep, I'm back! Does anyone care? :)

After more than a year away from this blog, I've decided to start posting again. Why? Well, I guess it's because I rarely get to write about video games as part of my day job (I'm a freelance writer) anymore.

So, from now on this blog will contain all the articles, columns, critiques and reviews that I can't convince anyone else to pay for and publish :)

In the meantime, here's a (non-exhaustive) list of the games I'm looking forward to playing this year:

DS: 7th Dragon, Art Style: PiCOPiCT, Dragon Quest IX, Retro Game Challenge

PSP: LocoRoco 2, Patapon 2, Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?

PS3: Fat Princess, Flower, Noby Noby Boy, White Knight Chronicles

Xbox 360: Star Ocean 4, Yosumin Live

Wii: Bubble Bobble WiiWare, Endless Ocean 2, Little King's Story

[I'm also hoping Aquanaut's Holiday (PS3), Fatal Frame 4 (Wii) and Fragile (Wii) will make it to the U.S. at some point. I'd add Captain Rainbow (Wii) to the list, but I know that's a pipe dream.]

Full disclosure: I don't own a PSP or an Xbox 360, though I hope to buy both before this generation is over.
